Lovely palette I received for Christmas. So many exciting colors and also some fun neutrals. Am a huge fan of UD shadows. Might be changing to an UD shadow girl over MAC.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this palette! The colors are gorgeous and super long lasting! UD never disappoints! I purchased this palette for a cruise. It's very versatile. I received many compliments on my eye makeup. This palette is a keeper!
I love this palette it has so many fun beautiful colors and it is really easy to apply. I love all of the Urban Decay products I have bought. I would highly recommend this palette to anyone.
I like this palette, it has very good pigmentation. There are a lot of colors to choose from but not a lot of neutrals. If you want a lot of neutrals then don't look at this palette! LOL It is quite pricey but if you want true to color that will last (with eye primer) this is it.
For color lovers! Seriously. Such a fantastic collection of BAM colors. There are some toned down neutral-ish colors and some matte, but mostly just jewel toned greatness. I've yet to run out of different looks combining them different ways. As usual UD is bendable, pigmented and gorgeous. Absolutely worth the price. So glad I hopped on this and didn't miss it like Vice 1. I've found a way to use it everyday since I purchased it. I'll even make up excuses to use it when my look doesn't necessarily need it. Ha! It's just so fun. Love love love. If someone was starting out, I'd say get this and Naked 1 and you're good. Well, Plus the Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette. Because I have an unhealthy obsession with it. :)
Seriously fantastic palette, I would definitely recommend this to anyone, if you're a beginner with cosmetics or a seasoned makeup veteran, this palette covers all bases.
UD always suckers me in with the amazing colours they come out with in their LE palettes, and just generally. I really had no intention of buying this palette as it is large and awkward to store and use in the small space I have available. But there were 4 or 5 colours that I REALLY, REEEEALLLY liked and then Sephora had their 20% off event and they were out of the other thing I wanted to buy and this palette is such an amazing value, even without the discount, so I caved and bought it.
What a good purchase this is turning out to be (well, as good a purchase as any frivolous accessory/non-necessary type item can be). I got this especially for the colours Stash, Derailed, Radar and Ambush (can you tell I love neutrals?) but I've been so pleasantly surprised by all the other colours in the palette. Obviously (for anyone who knows UD), many of the colours have sheen but I like a bit of glow in my shadows. What's surprising is the number of matte and also great blending/transition colours in Vice2. And to my surprise, I really like Strike, a yellow gold, which I find to be very different from Half Baked. It looks amazing on the inner third of my lids with Stash on the outer 2/3 and Derailed in the crease. A great look for fall. The 2 purple shades are so beautiful and Prank (a unique dark blue) is stunning. There seem to be 3 variations of the "black" theme and so far, I've only used Poison, which looks like a dark, blackened green but applies more like a really rich, deep browned black and makes a great smokey liner look.
While the case is large, it pretty much has to be to hold the TWENTY eye shadows inside. It's nice and solid and NOT cardboard (like BOS) and NOT hard to open (like the 15th Anniversary palette) and has a nice, big mirror. If I had a larger makeup area, the size wouldn't be an issue but even with it being a bit big, this is a great palette for travel since it has all the shadows you could possibly need for any kind of look from natural to classic to dramatic. Texture is terrific on almost all the shadows - pigmented, smooth and minimal fallout (though it IS UD and so there IS glitter fallout with one or 2 of the shades). All in all, a really good value.
Love this and the first but this one did not disappoint for me one bit. I really love the case and how no one is the same with the lacquered finish and the jewel UD on top. The brush is fine I'm not complaining but I never really use them. The eyeshadows are another story of course so here's my opinion on them now that I have played with this bad boy a bit.
-Smokeout~ Really nice dark taupe thats good for the outer V when doing a smokey eye. The shade is highly pigmented and blends really well.
-LoveSick~ I love this shade applied really tight on the lash line. To me it's black but better because the micro glitter looks really nice on.
-Shellshock~ Is one of the best silvers made period. It's buttery and has crazy colour payoff I use it for lining the part of my eye I want to standout more or in the tear duct it looks great.
-Coax~ Love this pink with the gold undertone for some reason I though it wouldn't work because I lean cool but no this is awesome to pair with X-Rated. Amazing lid colour, super soft and great payoff as well for me.
-X-Rated~ I love this baby pink I actually do not own a baby pink so I'm very happy with this. it's a great shade to mix with a dark eye. The hint of colour or just on its own is super pretty. Has good payoff for such a light pink too.
-Prank~ Another fav of mine I love the floating turquoise this shade alone is amazing and will be excellent for the summer or I like it as a liner. I love doing a purple eye and lining with this. Super payoff and excellent texture.
-Madness~ This is my favorite of the 2 blues this one is just amazing in terms of payoff and looks amazing on. It has a beautiful micro glitter and it just is an awesome lid colour or liner.
-Strike~ One of the first golds that looks good on my skin tone.I put this on half my lid and Madness on the other looks amazing together. Great liner and corner eye highlighter as well. Great payoff with this colour too.
-Stash~ I adore this eyeshadow! Like the liner it's awesome and it looks amazing on. I can see myself hitting pan with this shade it's so versatile and looks great with any colour eye. It really makes whatever shade you are stand out.
-Poison~ Truly is a charcoal and the micro glitter I like in it. I like how the darker colours have some life to them in this palette. You only need a little bit the payoff is very good.
-Radar~ I like this brown with the micro glitter in this and has a beautiful gold undertone. This brown is super pretty and not very typical which I like if that makes sense.
-Damaged~ This is a very dark emerald with like a light green that shines through very pretty green with good payoff. This is another good shade pared with Stash or Radar.
-Voodoo~ Love this purple it's like a taupe-y purple with all these colours mixed in from the micro glitter. It's an amazing eyeshade that I pair often with Betrayal.One of my fav's in this palette.
-Betrayal~ My fav of the bunch it reminds me of Morphine eye pencil in that it gives a super ethereal look. With a purple smokey eye this colour is a must have for me that I use on the lid as well as a liner. I would get this in a single without a doubt. I'm a purple lover and the blue shift is just gorgeous to me.
-Derailed~ Great smokey eye shade. It's a nice brown taupe that is really nice as a crease colour when done light or for the outer V it looks great.
-Dope~ Love this as a highlighter it is great on the brow bone. or to tone down other shimmery colours and for blending i like it as well. Very pretty champagne reminds me of Sin and BootyCall but on the warm side.
-Toxic~ I love all the pinks in this and this shade is no exception for me. It has great payoff but doesn't apply as dark as I would like. Still beautiful as a wash on the lid or would compliment any look really.
-Habit~ Standard matte basic nude that I love for blending and highlighting the beginning of the brow bone then using Dope on the other half. Great colour to have with good payoff and feels soft and buttery.
-Ambush~ It's a coppery brown that is very pretty for cool toned ladies as the undertone isn't so warm. I like that I can wear this on my fair skin. makes a great liner and lid shade with Radar over it, it looks awesome too.
-Rewind~ Brown matte that is very soft but a little chalky when blended out it looks awesome. I like it for my crease.
So if you have the first one should you get this? Yes, because I find I use both together actually. That may sound crazy or other MU junky's I'm sure can understand. I love it though and the colours are awesome to me and this is something that I as a palette collector had to get. This was a must buy for me and if you do not own a lot of UD this would be good to get. If you have a ton of palettes like me well welcome to the collection my little friend I have been waiting for you;) Buttery,pigmented, and beautiful! So Recommended!
I haven't picked up a UD palette in a long time, this one seemed
different yet the same as their usual releases. It's quite colorful
across the board and you should not get tired of this quickly.
A lot of shimmer in this palette, shimmery jewel tones seem to
dominate. I am not a fan of the pink shadows, or the several iterations of black shadows and this has a few of those.
Other than that this palette has some really standout shades,
and all 20 are touted as being "brand new".
I can't pinpoint any specific dupes but if you have a handful
of their palettes all ready you probably can come close
to many in here. I have the Alice,Naked 1,&the Naked Matte
palettes.So it seemed unique enough for me to get it. If you have a ton of UD palettes I would perhaps
skip it because the shades are unique but it is ground
they have all ready covered before or come pretty close to any way.
A major selling point for me is the packaging it's the nicest
palette packaging I have now. You press the side bar button
and the top slowly pops open, it is a quality sturdy case
that will really protect the precious contents. Not to mention
highly attractive! I marked I would not re-purchase because
I simply become bored at some point and move on. Hello,
Naked 3! :)
Update: If you LOVE Stash 24/7 you need to try the Stash
shadow in here, it is amazing! My favorite shade in the palette
hands down. It was worth it just for this shade. I hope
they make it a regular permanent color. A gorgeous shimmery
antique green with gold nuances. A+++ UD!!!
Urban decay has really been obsessed with pink eyeshadow lately! I'm completely fine with this since I love pink eyeshadow and wear it out on the regular, but I can see it turning off a lot of people. Thankfully, there are a lot of other great colors in this palette. Once again, Urban Decay doesn't disappoint with the quality of the shadows - creamy, buttery, smooth, and pigmented, as usual. There isn't a single color that isn't as pigmented/opaque as any of the other colors. Some of my personal favorites are Derailed, a shimmery taupe color, Stash, a very pretty mossy, yellow-green, and Coax, a shimmery baby pink. The price is expensive but definitely more than reasonable for the number and quality of eyeshadows that you get.
The packaging is also great - I love the purple design on the front, the full length mirror, and the fact that it feels sturdy. The only thing that I would say is that if you have the vice 1 I don't think the vice 2 is worth it since the colors are pretty much the same just moved around.
Other than that, get this while it lasts in stores ;)
