Review: Urban Decay Vice Palette & Look #1

Hey everyone! So a little while ago you might remember that I mentioned my dad getting me the Urban Decay Vice palette, and I can officially say I'm in love with it! The colors are incredible and you can create so many looks with it! I'm also going to show you a fun look I did at the end of the post and do a little tutorial of how I did it.

This is how the front of the palette looks. I love how the UD looks like crystals (even though it's not) and how the case feels sort of rubbery but hard and smooth. The only gripe I have about the case is it gets super dirty really fast and I always have to wipe it down the best I can. The front of the palette has a button you push in and the cover opens all by itself without any help. It's pretty cool! 

Once this bad boy is opened, you see these lovely colors! All of the 20 colors are brand new that haven't been in any other palettes. I know alot of times UD puts out palettes with repeat colors so this was a nice surprise having 20 new colors to play with. There is a mixture of matte, shimmer, neutral and bright shadows so there's lots of variety when choosing the look you want. It also comes with a double-ended Good Karma Shadow and Crease Brush, which isn't the best brush ever, but it's not terrible. I always have to use a primer before I put on any eyeshadows, but some of the more glittery ones in this palette, especially Provocateur, definitely require a primer first to help with fallout. This palette retails for $59 and can be found at Sephora and the Urban Decay website. I haven't seen it at Ulta so I'm not sure if they carry it or not.

Desperation, Muse, Junkie, Chaos

Jagged, Blitz, Occupy, Unhinged

Penny Lane, Black Market

Provocateur, Rapture, Nevermind, Echo Beach

Vice, Noise, Anonymous, Freebird

Armor, Laced

So those are the colors closer up. Hopefully you can see them well enough. Now onto the look I created using four of the colors!


I started off by priming my lids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion and I put the hot pink color, Noise, over the first inner half of my lids. I then took the color Unhinged and placed that on the outer half of my lids and blended the two colors together a bit. I then took a little bit of the color Echo Beach through my crease, blending out any harsh lines from Noise and Unhinged. Lastly, I took the color Anonymous and used that as my brow bone highlight. Then I finished off with mascara. I wanted to do a fun look since I'm more of a neutral girl and I'm really happy with how this turned out.

I think I'm going to be doing a Vice Palette series with different looks I come up with since there are so many different looks you can create. I'll add them in with my other posts once in a while so you guys aren't bombarded with Vice Palette posts!

I hope everyone liked this post and found it informative! Do any of you guys have the Vice Palette?
