20 new eyeshadow shades
Eek, Christmas is just one month away. As we get closer and closer to the holiday season, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect gift for not only myself, but friends and family. Top of the list this year, the new, limited edition Urban Decay Vice 3 Eyeshadow Palette. It contains 20 new shades with a mixture of matte, satin, sparkle and metallic finishes in an array of shades that are suitable for all skin tones. From soft blacks and stunning burgundies to rich and smoky reds, there’s a little something for everyone. It comes packaged in beautiful sleek, silver metal case with abstract striped design and bright neon lime Vice logo on the front. It boasts a pigment infusion system that offers rich and intense colour payoff with a stunning finish.
Urban Decay Vice 3 Eyeshadow Palette sleek, jewel-inlay design features a magnetic closure with full length inside mirror on lid, along with a zipper pouch for storing or could also double as a makeup bag when traveling. It also comes with a double ended brush that’s incredibly soft and fluffy and really packs on the eyeshadows. Each buttery soft and smooth shade is arranged into columns, with the neutrals on the left, jewel tones in the middle and smoky shades on the right to help you create your own custom quad palette. You can pair each colour coordinated quad or have fun by mixing and matching them to create your own unique eye look. Each shadow has excellent quality, smooth, creamy and extremely buttery. The formula couldn’t get any better. It applies and blends like a dream. Each shade is extremely pigmented with little to no fall out and provides 8 to 10 hours of wear time without fading or creasing, when used with a primer.
The first column contains Truth a pale pink-nude in a matte finish, Undone a pink-beige with a matte-satin/tonal pearl finish, Downfall a warm light brown with a matte finish and DTF a taupe with a matte/pearl finish.
The second column contains Dragon a bright metallic green with a shimmery finish, Freeze a metallic medium blue with multidimensional micro-glitter throughout, Heroine a deep navy blue with a tonal pearl finish and Brokedown a metallic golden brown shimmer with gold micro-glitter throughout.
The third column contains Vanity a smoky metallic/ eggplant with multidimensional micro-glitter throughout, Lucky a metallic bronze, Reign a rich brown with a satin finish and Bobby Dazzle a metallic white with pale gold micro-glitter throughout.
The forth column contains Alien a pink-peach with a golden shift finish, Alchemy a deep fuchsia with a satin finish, Bondage a deep, smoky burgundy with a shimmer finish and Sonic a metallic red-copper.
The fifth column contains Last Sin a champagne shimmer with silver micro-glitter throughout, Angel a light taupe with silver micro-glitter throughout, Defy a smoky taupe with a satin finish and Revolver a soft black satin with an iridescent pearl finish.
I’m a huge fan of Urban Decays eyeshadows, some of my faves by far. I use my Naked palettes at least a few times a week, and now have another palette to add to the weekly rotation. There’s something about this Urban Decay Vice 3 palette that has me reaching for it almost daily. Not only is it a good palette for the price, you get a variety of colours and neutrals along with matte, shimmery, frost and metallic shades to help create endless amounts of looks. It retails for $70.
