Vice2 is a limited edition palette released by Urban Decay in September 2013 and features 20 eyeshadows, providing an unlimited amount of combinations and unique potential. If you’re familiar with Urban Decay eyeshadows, you already know the amount of glitter and shimmer to be expected from their eyeshadows, but I’m happy to say there is a good mixture of formulas provided in this palette.
While there are only three true matte shades (Habit, Rewind and X-Rated), the remaining shades are shimmery but not packed with fallout glitter, with the exception of Shellshock which is a glitter nightmare (I guess we can let them get away with ONE glitter offender though, huh?). I found these shades so easy to work with, highly pigmented and not hard to blend at all.
The packaging is rather bulky for my liking and I would have liked to have seen a slimmer palette (it’s about 3/4 inch thick!) so I could easily stick it in my purse or an overnight bag. The advantage to having a big palette like this is that the mirror is also HUGE as well, allowing you to set it on a table and literally do your whole face. Maybe that can help make up for its bulkiness if I take it with me on my next trip. 😉
Will you be splurging on this or another holiday palette?
