Today I'm going to talk about the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette.
|Urban Decay Vice 2 Case|
Urban Decay is my go to brand for eye shadows and if you've ever tried them, you'd absolutely know why. They go on smooth and creamy, are super blendable, and last a very long time without creasing or fading. The Vice 2 is a limited edition palette that is actually no longer available at Sephora or Ulta. Unfortunately, the Urban Decay website says that it's out of stock so I'm not even sure if or when it will be available again.
This palette includes 20 BRAND NEW eye shadow colors from Urban Decay. There are a few matte shades, some neutrals, but mostly the colors are shimmery and jewel toned which is totally my cup of tea!
The case is hard plastic and there's a jeweled UD icon on top which makes it look very luxe. With the push of a button the case opens slowly to reveal a large mirror opening to a perfect angle for makeup application. A double ended shadow/crease brush is included. This is truly THE perfect palette to travel with.
Below the shadows are swatched without primer. The lighting is weird and my arms are more tan than my face so the colors actually didn't show up that vibrant. In the bottom photo, Stash, Poison, Smokeout, and Lovesick are MUCH more vibrant and pigmented than photographed here.
I used this palette for my makeup at my work holiday party which you can see HERE. I did a blue and silver smokey eye using Prank, Madness, and Shellshock.
Ok, now the bad...the price, $59. BUT if you think about it, you're paying that for 20 new shadows and the case itself is cool too! Of course I didn't pay the full price for this, I used a 20% off Ulta coupon and my Discover card had 15% cash back at the time.
This is my favorite palette ever! Like I said, I'm more of a fan of shimmery jewel tones than neutral mattes. If that is your preference as well, see if you can get your hands on this palette. I'm so glad I was able to get it before it was totally out of stock!
Do you have this palette? Do you love it as much as me?
Have a wonderful day everyone!
