Current Obsession: Urban Decay x Skullcandy

(Source: Skullcandy)It may officially be spring but in many parts of the country, people are still shivering in their down coats. And with each passing day that we're forced to pull on yet another cursed sweater, our fervor for warmer temps only intensifies—which is why we're drawn to Urban Decay's new Electric Pressed Pigment Palette ($49), whose bold, brash colors are like a proverbial middle finger to Mother Nature and this cruel practical joke she's been playing on us.

Clearly, the folks at Skullcandy feel the same way because they've adopted the palette's fluorescent floral artwork for the earbud brand's first pair of women's headphones, dubbed the Knockout ($100).

But back to the makeup: Urban Decay may be known for its best-selling Naked palettes featuring everyday neutral hues, but this couldn't be more polar opposite. The Electric palette includes ten saturated shades that seem ready to rave, plus a cruelty-free double-ended brush.

If you've been interested to try the unusual eyeshadow colors such as pink, orange and blue that have been trending on the runways, this is the palette for you. We also love the idea of using the vibrant tones as accent liners—you can easily re-create Jessica Biel's memorable turquoise bottom-liner look using shimmery emerald Fringe.

The Urban Decay x Skullcandy collaboration is sold separately. You can purchase the headphones at skullcandy.com and the Electric palette at Sephora and urbandecay.com.
