Review of Urban Decay Vice Palette by MsPsylocke
I love this palette 20 brand new shades and with the new formula. It is so blendable it's crazy! Even the glitters have less fall out which is awesome if you love UD's glitters. There are more mattes and some beautiful shimmer and sheer colors. The colors are crazy amazing and the only real dupe I would say is unhinged if you have peace it's very similar but otherwise I must say they are new to UD and this palette.
The palette itself does feel similar to Nars I have read a lot of reviews about that and it is true it does have a rubbery feel. In terms of fingerprints I just looked at mine and I must say not too bad nothing a makeup wipe wouldn't fix. The case is awesome because the mirror is high quality and big! Plus this Good Karma brush seems a little softer than the one in Naked 2 maybe it's just me but i like crease blending with this brush. The jeweled UD on top is pretty nice touch too.
Now to the colors. They look more amazing in person I was awed when I first opened it. Chaos the matte blue with a touch of sheen is amazing in person. You can see what work they put into it.
Blitz is insane it blends so easily and has a beautiful gold payoff.
Penny Lane is a peachy pink with gold undertones reminds me of like a slight very light Shag or Half Baked undertone. Very pretty for warm skin tones.
Unhinged is a beautiful aqua easily blendable more grown up aqua. I love it with Occupy which has blue undertones and micro glitter no fallout with Occupy in fact it's one of my fav's.
Vice one of the best purples ever and no dupes I can think of it goes great with Rapture which is a lighter more smokey purple just gorgeous!! Anonymous is beautiful with more color payoff than Foxy it has a very cool undertone. Mix it with Echo Beach and it's amazing!! Echo Beach is more a neutral crease color bisque like verve in a way but totally different.and both are matte:)
Another Matte I love is Laced it has more of a pinky undertone which I love and next to it is Freebird which I fell in love with! It's a beautiful peachy pink that cool and warm toned skin will love in the inner eye crease it's gorgeous and really opens the eye.
Noise another bright one but nothing like Woodstock it has a red undertone and is lighter on the skin plus the gold sparkles are so pretty with it.
Really a great bright color. One I wasn't to fond of was Jagged it's very rough and I have read other blogs of people saying they don't like it. I have to agree. It's good to put over the lid but it doesn't stay so it's one dud I do have to say.
Nevermind is better than Stray Dog in my opinion for me because it's a light neutral that mixes well in the crease and blends really well I love it but I think it's a preference thing.
Muse is a nice neutral brown that you can do a lot with the payoff could be better but I do like it.
Junkie is insanely awesome it's a green with a blue undertone and it's the s&i% I really love it. It's one of the main reasons I love this palette is it's a new green and isn't Mildew which is in a lot of there older palettes. I do love that color though just love that this is super new and the formula let me tell you again is amazing. The payoff is incredible and it's so soft and it's great with or without primer the payoff is that good!!
Desperation is a dark grey with a satin finish and is really pretty.
Black Market is great for smokey looks and is black but more smokey very nice matte too :)
Provocateur is another gorgeous color but not the best in pay off and fall out i would do my eyes before foundation with that color but it is really pretty!
Armor has a lot of silver in it, it will be a great holiday color mixed with Black Market oh wow my brain is thinking eye looks already.
So why do I love it? Because it's so versatile you have looks for every season and occasion you can imagine. For 59$ it's a great deal and the Friends and Fam sale is on now so it's 20% off so get it if you love UD's shadows.
I use it everyday with my Naked 2 palette and I can create almost anything I can think of. Would a primer or lipgloss been nice well of course but I do like this Good Karma brush. Plus they are almost full size shadows so for the money it's a steal in my opinion because who knows when some of these colors will be singles and for 18 a pop it's nice to have 20 brand new colors in one beautiful palette.
I am an UD lover so naturally I had to have this but I think there is something for everyone in this which, is what makes it so great. I really love that I can use them with out primer too because in a rush that is so great! If you love palettes this really is a must have and if you love eye makeup like I do it's another great excuse to get this lol. i gave the packaging 4 lippies because of prints but that's UD for ya.
In terms of quality it totally deserves 5 lippies it's undeniably great!
