These last few weeks I have become an absolute palette obsessive! Literally, I’m going insane over eyeshadow palettes and one of the latest (of a few I still have to talk about) is the new Urban Decay Vice Reloaded palette. This palette was released to celebrate 20 years of Urban Decay and will be the last palette in the vice range! In the UK this is exclusive to Debenhams and in the states I think it’s Ulta but correct me if I’m wrong. The palette contains 20 shades from cult favourites over the last 20 years to some brand new shades! The second I saw this I was sold and swatching some of the shades had me swooning so I thought I better share it with you all in case you wanted to get your hands on one!
This palette is slightly more expensive than Urban Decay’s usual offering as it comes in at £43. For me, I thought this was a pretty good price to say you are getting 20 shades and a brush compared to the usual 12 in a Naked palette for example. The packaging is also insanely beautiful with the matte black casing, jewelled urban decay logo, self-opening feature and HUGE mirror! I was so pleased with the packaging as I have nothing like it and I think it really sets it apart from my other palettes! It also comes with a handy double ended brush with a large end for blending and smoking and a smaller end for packing on colour or smudging.
The shades in this palette really are stunning and the pigmentation for all of them is fantastic! The opportunities are endless with this palette as there are both brighter shades and more neutral shades to ensure that your every whim is catered for! I’m starting to try and experiment with colour a bit more and I feel these shades are a good way to do that as they are not as crazy as say the Electric palette but are definitely more ‘wow’ than the naked palettes due to the pops of colour! My hands down favourite shade in the whole palette is Roadstripe which looks initially just like a shimmery white but when swatched has quite strong reflects of baby blue and is just an amazing inner corner highlight colour when you want to jazz it up a bit! It was this shade that initially sold me on the entire palette! I would say the shade I am least likely to wear out of the whole palette is Hot Pants which is a baby pink as that is just not my shade at all, however, I am still determined to try and make it work for me in some shape or form!
I’m not going to beat around the bush, Urban Decay have got it spot on with this palette in every way. The price point is good value for money; the packaging is to die for; the shade range covers all bases and the pigmentation is excellent. What more could you ask for!? I do plan to do a few looks with this palette over the next few weeks and potentially incorporate the Moondust palette too? Are there any colours you’d particularly like to see? If so let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to make it work! Have you picked up this palette yet? What are your favourite shades?
