Urban Decay’s Get Baked Palette Gives Me the Munchies

Published in: Makeup

Looking at Urban Decay’s Get Baked palette ($28), I can’t help but think of the summer after I graduated from college.


I had moved back home to live with my parents and brother, who at the time played guitar in a heavy metal band. His band mates — who were total stoners — stopped by the house daily. They’d arrive at the door with red, glassy eyes and always, ALWAYS had a case of the munchies.

The first thing Mom would always do was offer them something to eat. They’d say “yes,” of course, devouring whatever she put in front of them. Phrases like “Fried Spam is like a symphony in my mouth” would pepper the conversations.

Now, Urban Decay insists that “Get Baked” refers to the new palette’s bronzy summertime shades and not to the form of “herbal refreshment” my brother’s band mates enjoyed.

Sure, guys. Whatever you say. πŸ™‚

Top (from left to right): 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon, Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin. Bottom (from left to right): Eyeshadows in Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside and Baked.

Get Baked comes packed with four eyeshadows (shimmery brown, bronze, teal and gold), a wee bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin (a shimmery champagne) and a travel-sized 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon (a shimmery brown).

This time of year we see a lot of colors like these, but I like the arrangement of this palette. The colors work well together, and you get everything you need in terms of creating an eye look.

I think the colors work well with my skin tone, but I bet they’ll look great on other skin tones, too (especially warmer ones).

What do you think? Are you gonna Get Baked?

Chop, chop!


I finally got a haircut yesterday, yea! My last cut was over six months ago, and I was way overdue for a trim. I went with Vanessa Hudgens-esque sideswept bangs. I’ll post a picture soon.

TGIF! Have a good one today. πŸ™‚

    I am so greedy. I want every single Urban Decay item. Seriously. I have UDPP in the regular formula, but I also want Sin. LOL… Can a girl just PLEASE have a mythical bank account with infinite money for this kind of stuff?

    Speaking of infinite money… I just saw this and thought you might be interested (or any of the girls that read this). NYX is having a super blowout for their 10th anniversary. If you’re unfamiliar with NYX cosmetics, practically all of their products are under $10 dollars. I’ve heard great things from them but have never had the chance to try it.

    50% off ALL items sounds like a hella good time to try stuff πŸ˜€

    (there’s the image that went with the blog post I saw)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for sharing that info! I’ve tried a few Nyx eyeshadows in the past. I like their bold and shimmery colors, but I wish they were a bit more finely milled. For the price, though, they are pretty good.

      I am getting ADDICTED to Urban Decay. Seriously… my new favorite thing are their lip liners. πŸ™‚

      How’s your day going? Got plans for tonight?

  2. Merylynmagic says:

    Hey Karen!
    Yay for your new haircut!! Can’t wait to see a picture! πŸ™‚ Are you enjoying the usual post-salon-blow-out glow?!!! Lol, I lurrrve that hair commercial feeling– too bad it doesn’t last beyond the first shampoo! So I guess since its Friday, you better take your new haircut for a night on the town with your man.. enjoy!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Merylyn,

      Yup, I am. πŸ™‚ She blew it out last night so it’s SUPER straight. I feel like a different person. I know it’ll only last for about another day, though. *sigh*

      How’s your Friday going so far?

  3. Kim says:

    I know, every time I see something new from UD I’m just like “maybe I can just splurge on this… or this.” And my latest is the Get Baked pallette, which I saw a few days ago. I love their primer potion just because I have the most ridiculously oily lids EVER!

    My day is super dreary and rainy (I failed to mention this a few days ago) but I do have plans. I’m going out tonight and gettin’ all purdied up. Lurveeee Friday nights.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      I know a lot of women are devoted to the original primer potion. πŸ™‚ You gotta get the Sin one! It’s so pretty even just by itself.

      Boo to the rain. It’s overcast here, too. Where did spring go?

      Anyway, yay for Friday nights! What are you going to do? I think El Hub and I will be going on a dinner date. I’m craving sushi.

  4. Stacie says:

    I’m lovin’ the look of this palette! So shimmery… I’m a big UD fan–they have great colors. Can’t wait to see a pic of your haircut Karen! I need a haircut so bad, but I lack the time and motivation.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Stacie,

      I am pretty new to the UD line but I really like it so far. What are your fave products?

      I hear ya. The only reason why I ended up going was because I had to force myself to go to the salon, LOL! Plus, my hair was really starting to take a life of it’s own… Honestly, I feel like she cut off five pounds.

      What kind of cut are thinking of getting? Hopefully you’ll have the chance to go soon. πŸ™‚

  5. YadiQ says:

    yay for the haircut!

    i cant wait to see it!

    it old you urban decay is super addictive!

    but then again you know i am a major fan of their stuff – i will have to pass on this palette cause i already have most of the colors but i love the packaging!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yadi,

      Hopefully I can get a pic up soon — I’m wearing it straight today. πŸ™‚

      I love all the shades in this palette. I wish they included the Baked eye pencil. I picked that up a few weeks ago during the Sephora sale and it’s fab.

      Do you use any of their lip stuff? I’m also getting addicted to their lip liners.

  6. Kim says:

    Girl, I cannot tell you how often I crave sushi. I can eat it and five minutes later still want it. Maybe we’ll do that as well.

    I would try to do more today but it just seems like the rain will kill any outdoor activities. It’s like 72 degrees but humid as sheeeii! Gotta hate the midwest.

    We planned on going to the hookah lounge in town. We’re friends with the owner and she just moved her location closer to my house, so we’re supporting her grand opening πŸ™‚

    I’m definitely thinking about getting UDPP in Sin. It’s just so pretty.

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Kim,

    I know! I just had it last Friday and all week long I’ve been thinking about it. I love it when the fish is fresh and just *melts* in your mouth. *drools*

    I’ve never been to the midwest, but I’ve heard that the humidity can be killer! It’s pretty humid in Hawaii but there’s usually a breeze which keeps it comfortable. But yeah… if given the chance I’d opt for dry heat over humidity, for sure.

    Your evening sounds like it’s going to be fun! I’ve seen hookah lounges in SF but have never really been to one. They look exotic. Are they common out where you live?

  8. Kim says:

    I’ve never had fresh-fresh sushi. I know, such blasphemy, right? When I travelled to Chicago last year, I never got the chance to try out fresh seafood. I DO miss fresh crab and shrimp. UGH SO GOOD.

    Yeah, the midwest isn’t friendly to hair. Any hair, seriously.

    I’m in NW Arkansas (pretty close to Tulsa, OK and like 6ish hours from St Louis). Around these parts, we have nothing special. Srsly, like.. we JUST got a Sephora in Rogers (~30min away) about a year ago. My friend’s lounge is the very first hookah lounge to grace our area. Then two little hipster dudes scoped out our place and out came two more lounges. Barbara has a very dedicated clientele, though. So, it’s not a big deal πŸ˜›

    It’s not so much ‘exotic’ as it is inviting and very relaxing around here. None of the three lounges are owned by any Arabics or eastern ethnicities. Technically they’re not true hookah lounges, if you think about it but no one around here really knows the difference, so yeah lol

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      Relaxing is ALWAYS good. I need more of that in my life. Hookah bars, here I come…

      One of these days you’ll have to make it to SF so you can get some uber fresh fish. You’ll never be able to go back to sketchy sushi afterwards. Bah, it’s barely 10:30 a.m. here and my stomach is already grumbling like CRAZY.

      Is your fam from the midwest, or are you out there for school? I’ve never been out past Montana… pretty much grew up here on the west coast.

  9. I was just at Sephora on Wednesday and they didn’t have this, I really want it! I got some other goodies though. I got Urban Decay’s eye creme in Weeds and Mushroom. Too Faced lock down shadow in I’m Guilty and their blush in Papa Don’t Peach. Yay!

    THEN the next day (see what happens when I have classes in downtown SF near Nordies!) I went to MAC and got Steal My Heart and Magnetique glasses, a Blushcreme in Ladyblush and Knight Divine, Greensmoke & Swimming eye shadows. Eeek don’t tell the hubbie πŸ™‚ But aren’t you proud of me for breaking out of my blush rut haha!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Vampy Varnish,

      OH! I have been wanting to try the eye creme. What do you think of it? Oh, and those names crack me up…

      And yes, I am so glad that you decided to try some new colors. I soooo won’t tell the hubby. πŸ˜‰ I carry a big purse with me when I hit the counters so I can sneak all the makeup back into the house, HA! Otherwise, I’ll get another “Do you really need another pink lipgloss” lecture.

  10. Kim says:

    Okay… so I definitely just hopped into that NYX sale. Bought 11 items, originally totalling 50 something dollars. After the discount AND shipping together — $33. BARGAIN SHOPPPPERRRRR, holla!

  11. Laurie says:

    I can’t wait to see your haircut!! I love Vanessa Hudgens look – her mnakeup is always fab too:)

  12. Briana says:

    Lol, the phrases stoners come up with are hilarious.
    I love those colors!

    Briana´s last blog post..SighÒ€¦

  13. Heidi says:

    UD has some kick@$$ eye products. I love that their shadows are packed with pigment and blend easily. What more can a girl ask for?

  14. Kim says:

    I actually would love to make it out to Cali sometime for a short vacay. I love to travel, even if I’m broke.

    My fam isn’t from around here. My mom (as are the rest of my crazy fam) is Puerto Rican. Born, raised, ya know. Latino style lol! I was raised in NYC though. When I was about 15, we moved to NWA and I’ve been stuck here ever since. I would love to move back to a bigger city but I don’t think a city like NYC is for me anymore. Maybe if I lived just outside of a big city like an hour or two away from Chicago or Miami or Houston.

    I love me some warm weather — it’s in my blood! I wish it were more tropical here.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      I love to travel, too. If I won the lottery I’d want to see every corner of the world!

      Moving from NYC to the mid-west must’ve been a big change. Did it take a long time to adjust?

      As much as I love a big city I’m with you — I dunno if I could handle something super urban like NYC, either. The outer parts of SF (which are more like busy suburbs) is probably all I could handle right now.

      How was your evening? Did the opening go well?

  15. Amanda says:

    yay bangs! looking forward to seeing the pic. I do love this palette-but, again, too similar to stuff I have. I have either half baked or baked already (I think it’s half baked-this was my first UD shadow along with X). still love em.

  16. Indian Girl says:

    I love this palette – super summery and complete ! But I think I liked the Estee Lauder palette from the bronze collection a bit more…
    Cant wait to see your hair cut ! I’ve been meaning to get my hair done for a long time now…my last trim was…well you dont wanna know. Lets just say, it was eons ago.

  17. Glosslizard says:

    A really pretty palette! I might even consider getting it, except that I already got Flipside last year… it was way too pretty to pass up! I’d love to see the look you create with the set, though!

    I’m overdue for a cut too! I’m booked for next Wednesday! Can’t wait to see your new ‘do!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Glosslizard,

      Yay, hair cut! πŸ™‚

      I can so see you rocking flip side… do you ever wear it with thick black, cat eyeliner? For some reason I can just see that one you.

  18. Solé says:

    I’m smitten with this palette. I do have to admit that besides the gorgeous colors, a big part of the attraction is the fierce cover and the cheeky statement. The 70s is my all-time favorite fashion decade. And I won’t lie, I’m a fan of the green. The folks at UB can deny it all they want but how can they convince anyone that they aren’t referring to “herbal refreshment” when they have names for colors such as Maui Wowie, Blaze, Blunt, Roach, Green Goddess, Mary Jane, and Purple Haze? And I’m not even counting the colors in the palette such as baked, half-baked, and twice-baked. Ha ha.

    Oh and PS I’m getting my hair cut on Sunday! Chopping about eight inches off and maybe even changing the color drastically. Not sure what color yet but it’ll come to me by Sunday. πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sole,

      I can’t wait to see your new hair cut! What made you decide to take the plunge?

      I am getting my colored on Tuesday… I have no idea what I’m doing, either. πŸ™‚

  19. Jenn says:

    I have been wanting this palette for the past week and it’s so weird that you posted about it today! It’s torturing me! Karen you should post pics of yourself wearing it. I have fair skin though so I’m afraid of the colors washing me out. But it’s SO gorgeous and the packaging is killer. Seriously, I will buy anything if the packaging drags me in. Sigh!

  20. Rachel says:

    Luff her hair!

  21. Glosslizard says:

    I haven’t, no… but maybe I will now! πŸ˜‰

  22. Kim says:

    Hey! Good morning. Hope the rain isn’t coming down on you guys. We have a massive rain cloud over oklahoma and arkansas, lol. We fail so much πŸ™

    Although it was POURING when we went out to eat (sushi, yay!), we made it fine. Same with the grand opening. It was really comin’ down. My two friends and I got soaked but it was worth it. I wish I’d found my camera so I could take pictures of the lounge. It looks like something out of a cali club or something. Super posh LOL

  23. Erin says:

    Are these shadows glittery or just shimmery? I love UD shimmery shadows, but for every day wear, the glitter ones kind of drive me nuts.

  24. Connie says:

    Ahhh… this palette is on my wish list and I’m still beating myself up for not getting it during the sephora sale πŸ™ now I’m sad… very sad…

    side swept bangs rock!

    You know… I don’t have any gold shadows yet, and Twice Baked looks like a gorgeous taupe. I may just cave on this by summer’s end.

    I finally went out and bought Urban Decay’s got baked. Do you have any suggestions on how I should use the shadows appropriately?

    PS love the new haircut:)

  27. Hey Karen πŸ™‚
    you probably know this already, but this UD palette is on sale for $18 at sephora right now. I think I’ll go pick it up tomorrow
