Look & Review: Urban Decay Vice2 Palette


Vice 2 Palette!

Having literally *just* received this palette in the mail the other day, I haven’t had the full opportunity to experience it after multiple looks as I usually do with palettes, but I couldn’t wait to share this one with you! I know several of you have been wondering about it too, which furthermore upped the anty to share it with you sooner. 😉

There is some minor fallout that needs to be mentioned, as with all UD eyeshadows both during and after application. The worst offender so far in this palette is most notably Shellshock.

(Top Row, L to R) Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, X-Rated
(Middle Row, L to R) Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash, Poison
(Bottom Row, L to R) Radar, Damaged, VooDoo, Betrayal, Derailed
(REPEAT FROM ABOVE Top Row, L to R) ) Radar, Damaged, VooDoo, Betrayal, Derailed
(Bottom Row, L to R) Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush, Rewind

Dupes? There are some dupes to be mentioned; I sat down and swatched them out this morning with their suspected dupes and came up with the below, as follows:

  • Lovesick = Like MAC Carbon but with silver sparkles
  • Shellshock = UD Oz from the Glinda palette (Shellshock is less glittery, though)
  • Coax = UD Magic from the Glinda palette (a little lighter by comparison)
  • Prank = a MUCH more pigmented version of MAC Plumage with green sparkles
  • Damaged = MAC One Off + Bows & Curtsies layered
  • Radar = Less pigmented version of MAC Tempting and UD Smog, with gold glitter
  • Poison = Similar to UD Loaded, but has silver sparkles and is a darker, more muted green
  • Derailed = UD Mushroom and MAC Moth Brown (slightly darker though)
  • Habit = What you’d get if you mixed MAC Bisque and Malt
  • Rewind = MAC Cork or UD Buck

Out of the 20 shades you get within the palette, I’d say there are 10 unique new shades from what I can see of it. If you break that down per eyeshadow (UD is normally $18 per eyeshadow), $18 x 10 = $180 – but you’re only paying $59 for this palette. In my opinion, if you really like Urban Decay eyeshadows and don’t already own any that are similar to the 10 that I didn’t find dupes for, I’d say go for it. 😉

  1. Beautiful look Z! Love the lipstick! 🙂 This is one palette I will not get, but I’ll enjoy your looks with it. At least 50% of that palette should be new e/s. Did you know you can get UD’s Mushroom as a single e/s?

  2. I guess I’ll just comment on all the social media posts for this like a creeper, but I just REALLY love this look on you! I need to try it, but I don’t know if I can not put on eye makeup today long enough to wait for UPS to drop off Vice 2.

  3. Damaged- Inglot 414
    Voodoo- UD AC/DC, UD Half Truth, Milani Purr-fect purple, and MAC Grand Galaxy.
    Betrayal- L’Oreal With a Twist, UD Grifter
    Dope- MAC Orb( It’s less shimmery)
    Toxic- MAC Mythology
    Habit- Inglot 390
    X-rayed- Inglot 319
    Strike- L’Oreal Gold Imperial
    Stash- MAC Greensmoke

    These are not exactly alike but similar.

  4. Why, oh why do I look. I was totally “Nope, don’t need this palette. Don’t need to contend with the glitter. Don’t have room for another palette. Just bought 3 palettes that I’ve hardly even touched! Don’t even really want the Vice2 palette!” Guess what I’m itching to own now. You are such a bad influence but really, I should know better by now than to look at your reviews and looks!

    1. I agree, she is a bad influence! Do you have any idea how much makeup she has inspired me to buy, and then some? But at least it’s a good thing she’s getting me hooked on. I had a dream that I was hanging out with the Kartrashians the other night (and I don’t even watch any of their shows on TV!) and boy, were they ever a bad influence, most notably Kris. LOL… XD

  5. Hey Zabrena! I was sooo excited to see this post as I just purchased the Vice2 palette last week! I haven’t tried it out yet but I am really looking forward to using it :o) . The look you have posted is beautiful – can’t wait to try it!

  6. Still another gorgeous look Z, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from you. I’m really looking forward to whatever else you come up with for this palette! 😀

  7. I’m so excited to see what looks you come up with for this palette. I bought it a few weeks ago, but wasn’t sure how to use all the colors. When I saw your post on it, I couldn’t wait to check it out. Thanks!

  8. Just wanted to let you know that I hit the jackpot on make-up when I found you yesterday! I also bought the Vice2 palette and tried a couple of looks and wasn’t happy with the choices I made, but now I can’t WAIT to follow you and try them out, win win in my eyes 🙂 I also love that you have blue eyes as I find alot of the girls have darker ones (not their fault) lol. Now to go and snoop on all the looks that I’ve missed (have a feeling it might take me a while!!!!!

  9. Just got this palette yesterday, & glad I found your YT channel & blog! I was very excited to get this palette, but at the same time when I got it it was a bit overwhelming-there are 20 shades,& actually, I’ve never had a nice big palette before. So I really didn’t know where to begin! But I tried the look with the blues & silver and brown in the crease, & it looked BEAUTIFUL!! I really wasn’t sure what I was going to do with that sparkly silver, but I really liked it in this look!
