Today, I will be doing something different from my weekly Top 5 Tuesday Favorites. I would like to talk about Urban Decay VICE 2 eyeshadow palette. As some of you may know, I lusted after Urban Decay palette ever since I posted it’s new released of Vice 3 lasted Oct. But instead of getting Vice 3, I opt for Vice 2 since I personally love the color shades more.
I put my order online and I received it on time to make this review and color swatches to share with everyone.
Vice 2 has its unique packaging and color palette behind the box.
look at her there, isn’t she beautiful!
This plastic casing looks very pretty. The palette is housed in a large plastic palette where the lid releases upon pressing on the push button. It has a large mirror inside the lid.
It has excellent pigmentation, this palette is nice with soft and lovely shades. It wears well and do not fade or crease over eight hours (without a primer).
I don’t seems to be able to find any misses on the color payoff except the X-Rated. I find that it’s a little drier, and the cool toned pink is too light or sheen and must layer up a couple of times as compared to other shades in the palette. The shades like Prank, Lovesick, Voodoo and Toxic are a little bit rough due to the metallic formula but overall all of these have rich pigmentation. It’s super easy to blend and I really enjoy the finishing look.
There are a lot of shades that has micro-glitter or micro-sparkle on it but I didn’t notice on half on them. I only notice fall out with a few shades but nothing was too problematic. Seeing this palette, I’m totally surprised that I don’t mind with some of the subtle glittering even though I’m more of a matte type of person. I got to admit that these gorgeous shades really make my day. I would recommend this to a friend.
Having said that, all the colors are incredibly bright and vibrant. It’s a perfect palette for those who loves to play with eye makeup. I have been trying out many of the shades and I can mixed my own shades which i find them useful.
I did the color swatches on all twenty color shades and it comes out pretty on the skin. The only 2 shades which are matte are Habit and Rewind. The rest of them has a metallic iridescent micro glitter finish.
Stroke & Damaged shades Prank & Dope shades
Overall, I really love this eyeshadow palette and I can go over and over again talking on how amazing these shades are. But I’ll save it until you have try them yourselves.
I can use all the shades in this palette by wearing in for day or night. Such gorgeous color and you have to try it to believe it!
Frankly speaking, I’m obsessed with it and do take note that this palette is a limited edition and it will sell out. Fair warning right!
You can pick this up at Sephora and Ulta.com for $59.00 before stock last.
Will you be picking this VICE 2 eyeshadow palette? I love to know.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
