Swatchfest: Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette

Urban Decay launched their holiday 2013 collection in September and so far I've only bought the Vice 2 palette. Their whole holiday collection looks awesome, but I knew that this palette was the first thing I needed to buy and I'm so glad that I did.

The packaging has a gorgeous purple "abstract orchid" pattern with "UD" in 3D gunmetal faux crystal on the top and I adore it. The packaging seems to be made of a lightweight plastic that feels pretty stable. The button in the front with the brand name on it is used to open the palette. Once pressed, it's pretty much self-opening and it's awesome. The color names are also clearly labelled below each shadow, which as you know is a huge "must" for me. The Vice 2 palette probably has the best packaging out of all of the palettes I own (and I own quite a few). The quality and look of it is just fantastic.

The Vice 2 palette has 20 all new eyeshadows at 0.8g each and retails at $59.00. It also includes a generous mirror as well as a double ended brush (for applying and blending colors). There's a pretty good mix of shimmer, glitter, satin, and matte shades, as well as some having a duo-chrome effect.

Top Row: Smokeout (dark taupey-black satin), Lovesick (black matte with iridescent micro-glitter), Shellschock (bright metallic silver), Coax (medium metallic pink with golden iridescent micro-sparkle), X-Rated (baby pink satin)
Second Row: Prank (deep navy matte with turquoise floating pearl), Madness (bright metallic blue shimmer with blue micro-glitter), Strike (antique gold shimmer with silver micro-glitter), Stash (deep olive green shimmer with iridescent micro-sparkle), Poison (charcoal satin with iridescent micro-sparkle)
Third Row: Radar (metallic brown shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter), Damaged (bright metallic emerald shimmer), Voodoo (metallic purple shimmer with iridescent purple micro-glitter), Betrayal (bright purple satin with blue shift), Derailed (medium metallic taupey-brown shimmer)
Bottom Row: Dope (warm champagne satin), Toxic (metallic copper-pink shimmer with tonal micro-glitter), Habit (light nude matte), Ambush (metallic brown satin), Rewind (medium brown matte)

As always, all of the pictures were taken in natural lighting and the shadows were swatched on bare skin (no base or primer) with a finger. The only eye shadow that I was disappointed with is Lovesick. All of the other shadows, I think, are amazing and the Vice 2 palette is seriously worth the price.

If you're interested in picking one up, I would do so as soon as possible because since the palette is part of the holiday collection, it is a limited edition product.

What are your thoughts on the palette? Have you bought it yet? Do you plan on getting it?

  3. This is probably the most beautiful pallette I've ever seen! Gah, it makes me want to buy it. The packaging is lovely too. A bit out of my price range for makeup, but a girl certainly can dream haha. I'm pretty sure Damaged is my favorite of the bunch. Can't wait to see how you use these!

    1. Urban Decay just had their friends & family sale, but I think Sephora will have one next month. Keep an eye out cos I'm sure you'd be able to get a deal on the palette!

  4. Soooo pretty. I love all the pink and purple shades, but it seems to have a lot of neutrals that would get a lot of use too. Damn my wallet.

    1. It's definitely balanced really nicely with bright colors and neutral colors. It would be perfect for travelling!
