Golden sandy beaches, gentle ocean waves, sunny skies...just some of the things that came to mind when we set eyes on Urban Decay’s new Beached Eyeshadow Palette, a collection of eight brand new summery shades that we couldn’t wait to dive straight in and try.

From its tropical line-up to its palm-tree covered case, the limited edition palette makes for a fitting tribute to the brand’s SoCal roots. And, just like its bestselling predecessors, it has all the hallmarks of a future sell-out - impressive colour payoff, great longevity and a versatile shade range that appeals to our experimental streak. Think of it as a mixture of Urban Decay’s Naked Heat , Afterdark and Petite Heat  palettes.

Ranging from warm bronzes to deep pops of blue, metallics to shimmers, personal favourites include the golden 16th St., copper Wedge and blue-green combination of Double Dip and Plunge for an ocean wave effect.

Come balmy day or hot night, there’s a colour combo to suit a whole host of beachy looks. A fast-track way to get that summer feeling - even on days when the forecast is looking less than bright.

The new Urban Decay Beached Eyeshadow Palette, £28, is available to  buy online now .
