One of the long-awaited mega palettes of the year! This palette boasts 20 brand new eyeshadows from Urban Decay in a box design, similar to the previous Vice palettes. There is a good mixture of mattes and shimmers, as well as some of those glitter bombs many of us could do without. Out of all the eyeshadows, there are 5 glitter bombers in particular that exhibit tremendous fallout: Bobby Dazzle, Brokedown, Freeze, Last Sin and Vanity. I have been applying them wet, which does help to eliminate some of the fallout, but not all of it. Despite this minor flaw (which we find in nearly every UD palette), it’s a pretty great palette. I like how many colors are offered and the amount of mattes provided as well (6 to be exact). Some of these are dupeable across other brands, most notably Undone and DTF (which you can find in LORAC’s Pro 2 Palette) … Lucky (MAC’s Amber Lights), Alien (MAC’s Da Bling), Revolver (reminds me of MAC’s Contrast) and Reign (UD’s Snakebite).
The pigmentation on many of these shades is superb with the exception of many of the aforementioned glitter bombs (ahem, Brokedown). Overall, I like that Urban Decay gave more versatility in this year’s palette and I feel it’s one worth getting if you don’t have a huge collection, or if you’re looking to add more color into your range.
My favorites from this palette include: Dragon, Sonic, Bondage and Alchemy. 😉
