Urban Decay The Vice Palette

Fall is officially here and Urban Decay has a new palette called The Vice Palette to tempt your wallet. Is it too soon to start buying holiday gifts for yourself? 😉

The Vice Palette features twenty eyeshadows and not only that, these are NEW shades! Yup, these haven’t been released in any other palettes. Finally!

The palette features a great range of brights to neutrals and mattes to shimmers. It features a gigantic mirror inside as well as a dual-ended Good Karma Shadow and Crease Brush. The palette opens slowly with the push of a button.

Urban Decay The Vice Palette Swatches 4
Nevermind, Echo Beach, Anonymous, Freebird, Laced (over primer)

Nevermind is a medium gold/taupe with shimmer.

Echo Beach is a light tan/gold with shimmer.

Anonymous is a pale off-white matte.

Freebird is a light pink with silver micro-glitter.

Laced is a pink/taupe matte.

Overall: I think this palette offers a good range of shadows, but I do wish there were a few more mattes. There are a lot of shimmery or micro-glitters in it, which I don’t always want. The payoff was pretty good with most of the shades over a primer. I would say the most problematic shades were Jagged, Black Market, Provocateur and Freebird. My favs are Muse (GORGEOUS), Junkie, Chaos (insane pigmentation) and Nevermind.

Availability: Sephora, Urbandecay.com, Ulta.

Pricing: $59.00.
