Swatches :: Urban Decay Vice Palette

*Queues Angel Voices* As a nice birthday gift to myself, I finally picked up the new Urban Decay Vice Palette which features 20 new exclusive shades! While some are similar to others already in other palettes, these are all drool worthy.

The palette retails for $59 and if you purchase it from the website (as I did), you will get free shipping. This palette is available in stores as well. For just under $3 per shade it is also a steal!

The first thing that popped to me was the actual palette, the plastic case has a push button closure which makes it quite secure. The size is also not bulky or anything. As other UD pallets it come with a mix of matte, satin, and glittery shades, more glittery ones than I prefer though.

The shinning stars for me are Jagged, Penny Lane, Junkie, Chaos, Unhinged, Rapture, and Echo Beach. Check out the swatches below!

Tutorial Time

Tutorial :: Naked for the Holidays!

This look was able to kill two birds with one stone… a holiday look and a highly requested look using the new Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.

The look is great for any occasion really but the deep red sparkly lips make it much more festive and holiday friendly. Hope you like it!

Show & Tell :: Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (Swatches)

It’s here! The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette! I wasn’t really looking forward to this until abut 2 weeks before it was released and Urban Decay started posting sneak peeks on Instagram. Because I am pretty much an Urban Decay Palette collector I had to snag it. I’m signed up for the emails, so when I got the go ahead that it was available online, I hopped on and ordered it.

They have sold out three times since, but they are restocking so I suggest signing up for the emails so you will know when it is available again.

I adore the new packaging, though I am not completely impressed by the brush… You get a double sided brush (flat shader and blender) and a small lip gloss along with the 12 shades and a slightly higher price tag at $50.

Naked2 has 12 pigment-rich, taupe and greige neutral eyeshadows, including FIVE NEW shades. Our palette proves once again, neutral is anything but boring, (and is downright sexy when worn Naked). Feast your eyes on our shades ranging from pale to deep, matte to sparkly. This collection lets you achieve lots of neutral looks, smoky dramatic eyes, and everything in between.

Naked2 seems to be slightly cooler toned compared to the first Naked, I like the diversity in finishes and if you have the first one, this palette can be very complimentary.
