Urban Decay’s launches are my biggest vice (pun intended). As a beauty junkie, it is my bread and butter to love and adore the brand’s well loved series of Naked and Vice palettes. So when I did give this palette a whirl, I wasn’t surprised to find quality and pigmentation that lived to the hype.
The packaging of this palette is chic(er) than usual with a studded UD on the top, it really feels like a more put together version of all their other palettes. The practicality of the palette is exactly where you have to factor in personal prejudices. The palette isn’t your everyday jane, you have colors that amp up your look and make a trend-look. The colors are heavily pigmented, except a few that are meant to add a sheer wash of shimmer than anything else on your lids.
Hot Pants, Mildew, Smog, Misdemeanor, Freakshow, Asphxia, Acid Rain, Moonflower, UV-B, GoldMine, Twice Baked and 501 are best used as lid colors, either patted down with flat brushes or fingers. They are highly pigmented and really pack a punch with their longevity. I love using Oil Slick, Suspend, Gash, Laced and Anonymous as base shades or crease shades as they’re matte-r than the rest. Whilst, Midnight Cowboy and Shallow will really just add a sheer wash of color, I’d recommend them for the brow-bone.
This palette is really versatile if you’re someone who likes experimenting with colored makeup looks. It’s soooooo out of my comfort zone that I’ve really had to work my way up-to it. So far the greens and golds have made their way up in my makeup looks, but I’m yet to dive into strong blue and violet shadows.
So tell me, which Vice palette is your fave?
