The Vice Palette: Swatches and First Impressions


If you have been following my blog, you may already know that I recently purchased the new Urban Decay Vice Palette. This palette contains 20 brand new shadows in a wide array of colors.  It also comes with a double sided brush. Keep reading for swatches and my first impression!

As with all Urban Decay palettes, these eyeshadows are highly pigmented and velvety to the touch. The palette has mostly shimmery shades, with a few matte colors thrown in. I love the fact that this palette has bright, bold colors, but also some neutral shades. The shades that really drew me to this palette were Chaos and Blitz so I can’t wait to try out a look with those.

At this point, I’ve only used this palette on my eyes once, but so far so good. Upon swatching, I did not have any real issues, although some of the glittery shades were a little harder to swatch and not as heavily pigmented.

Unfortunately, I cannot give a full review at this time because I haven’t tested all of the shadows yet, but my initial impression of this palette is that I will really enjoy it. This would be a great gift for any makeup enthusiast or a perfect treat for yourself. It retails for $59 (for 20 shadows) which equals out to $2.95 a shadow. Urban Decay single shadows are regularly $18 each, so I definitely think it is worth the money!

Stay tuned for upcoming pictures and/or tutorials using this palette!
