Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay – Review & Swatches


Hi everyone! It’s Sharon here. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Yes, I finally got my hands on the long awaited Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay from Sephora. This is the latest Vice collection palette if I’m not mistaken and yes, I’m super excited to do color swatches and post review for you guys.


When I think of Urban Decay Vice, I instantly think of punchy color and ubiquitous glitter. Oh yes, give it all to me! Whahaha!!! Anyone feel the same way or is it just me?

An awesome packaging that wow me from right from the start.  The Vice palette has an awesome colored web design on the outer casing – or maybe it’s meant to look like shattered glass?  In any case I really like the packaging, and also the black and silver holographic makeup pouch that it comes in – great for keeping the palette safe from scratches when travelling, or your could fill it with your brushes and other makeup. So another reason to makes Vice 4 a great addition to my palette collection!

Inside the palette you also get a nice big mirror, and a double-ended eye brush, which is a good quality and properly useful brush, rather than those annoying sponge applicators that everybody hates.


So here is the review.

The Vice 4 palette contains a variation of colors with mostly satin, shimmer and glittery finishes.

Given the variety of hues, I fell in love with the Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette upon first glance, zeroing i0n on the pinkish orange shades that seemed to be missing from my arsenal. There are a few matte finishes (with “Bitter” being a standout), but most are either shimmery or glittery, with varying degrees of pigment and fallout. It doesn’t bother me since I always tap my brush before applying.


The size or this palette is the same as Vice 2 that I have. But this one is far thinner than the latter. I’ll do a side by side palette comparison on my next blog post for you guys.

Scroll further down for color swatches:-


This palette contains a mix of matte and shimmer shades in both warm and cool tones. Initially, I wasn’t very inspired by the shades but after swatching them I changed my mind all together. A really interesting mix of tones which are great individually or layered on top of each other.

Mattes: Bitter (slightly powdery; warm medium brown), Discreet (smooth beige-y pink), Framed (light apricot)

Satin: Bones (a little powdery), 1985 (bright fuchsia), Underhand (royal purple), Harlot (lilac), Robbery (silver with a pink undertone)


Shimmers: Fastball (chunky, shimmery warm toned pink), Grasshopper (stunning bright green), C-Note (teal with monochromatic shimmer), Beat Down (smooth deep purple with purple shimmer)

Glitters: FLAME (Orange with gold shimmer/glitter), Grip (taupey-grey with monochromatic glitter), Low (smokey purple with silver glitter), Arctic (turquiose with silver glitter looks different in the pan), Crowbar (grey with gold reflect/glitter), Pandemonium (purple with sliver/purple/pink glitter) THESE WILL HAVE FALLOUT.


The swatches of the eyeshadows on my hand are without primer. This is to give you an idea of their opacity without building. If you want more impact and longer wear, I highly recommend using a primer underneath these or any other eyeshadows.

For the glittery shades like “Flame,” “Low,” and “Crowbar,” in particular, make sure you use primer and/or use your finger to apply (instead of a brush) OR apply with a damp brush which usually works for me.


First Row:

This one seems to have a lot more colors that can be used regardless if it’s day time or night time. How cool is that, right!

Just look how pigmented and beautiful these shadows are. The colors are intense and you could definitely create many different look with this palette.


Second Row:


Third Row:


Fourth Row:

The only complain I want to put it out in terms of chalky and powdery shadows are the shades in Low and Crowbar. These are the only two shadows that I don’t really like on texture and formula consistency. It’s as if they’re from different palette all together.

My eyeshadows and falsies matches so well together I had to document it. I’m so impressed with all of the colors and they’re so blendable. Oh boy! The looks you can make are endless I tell you.

I would definitely recommend this to people looking for something different and looking to add a pop of color to their eye looks.

Are you a Vice palette brights fan, or do you prefer the tamer Naked collections?  I love to hear your comment below. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Sharon xoxo

  8. These colors are so pretty, although it is upsetting to hear there is a ton of fallout. I’ve heard that it is a big concern with Urban Decay eyeshadows, and to be frank, I don’t think it should be that big of an issue for such a large company (Hey, UD, get it together). However, I do love their Electric Palette and haven’t noticed fallout from that one!

    This palette looks really pretty but I think there are a lot of colours I wouldn’t use. I tend to go for more neutral shadows and urban decay’s colours are so pretty but too bright for me.
