Urban Decay Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Hey guys!

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.

UD Vice 2

Vice 2 has its unique packaging and color palette behind the box.

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.

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.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette Review & Swatches

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a review with you guys of my most-used product lately Naked 2 Basics¬†Palette¬†by Urban Decay. I first heard about this Naked Palette after watching several Youtube girls raving about it and so you know that¬†I absolutely have to¬†pick one up and see what was all the fuss about. If¬†Urban Decay has matte shades palette then, I got to¬†have it since I’m always intrigued by matte shades the most. So does it live up to the hype? Let’s take¬†a look.
Naked2 Basics paletteud naked2 basics inside
The packaging¬†is made of¬†plastic material casing but study. The palette¬†is as big as a¬†HD cellphone. It’s slim and sleek. It has a¬†good size mirror but no brush applicator. Net wt: 0.30 oz
Urban Decay Naked2 UD Naked2 Basics palette
Each palette has 6 shadows in taupe-hues neutral which has light to darker shadows. There are 5 never-been-seen before shades and it says to have cooler tone and it complements Naked 2 perfectly.
I chose Naked 2 Basics instead of Naked Palette because I prefer the more neutral taupe shades for my skin tone.

L-R : Skimp/Stark/Frisk/Cover/Primal/Undone
I love all these matte shadows except the Skimp which has a little shimmer which I used it as highlighter on brow bone. Then the darkest shade on the palette is the Undone which is more of a smokey deep taupe rather than black.

Here are the color swatch. As you can see the left half of the shadow is in lighter shades than the right half which has darker shades. The colors are matte and has highly pigmented.

Do you use mostly matte or shimmer shadow? What is your favorite neutral palette?  Let me know in the comment below.

Thank you for stopping by.

Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner Review

This is my first love with Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner in Trooper (0.007 oz). I got this as a free sample when I ordered my Urban Decay Naked2 Basics at Sephora online.

I love the design on the packaging. The black color liner is fine and liquid-y. I did a swatch and it glides very well. It’s a¬†waterproof liner.
winged eye look with kat bottom lids liner
Today,¬†I want to share how I create¬†my everyday winged liner look using this tattoo liner. It has a superfine tip brush for precision drawing. Oh wow… I love the way the tip glides so easily and it’s gentle to eyes. I can do the bottom lids and applying it nearer on¬†eyelids without causing any irritation. Sometimes, if the line is not even, I can always layer it a little thicker to make both liner balance.

It’s smooth and doesn’t smudge. ¬†The fluid application¬†flows easily and it’s fun to play with many different look with this liner. Winged or cat, you name it. But¬†when¬†I did my winged¬†look, this liner makes drawing a thin line so much easier. With the short pencil design, I can control the liner better, perfect winged¬†eye look without¬†using much¬†effort. The formula seems to dries up quickly once in contact with skin. The ink leaves some watery finish look. The liquid ink¬†are¬†easily removed with eye remover.

Overall, I love how it glides and not causing irritation in my eyes.¬†That’s a plus point for Kat Von D Tattoo liner.

I think this is an incredible product but having said that, the price is at a¬†higher end¬†border. The last time I checked, it’s selling for $23.00 at Sephora.

Have you tried any of Kat Von D’s makeup products from Sephora? Please share on comment below.

Urban Decay ¬†Naked2 Basics eyeshadow palette’s review coming soon on my next blog.

Thank you guys for reading.
