Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette Product Review

I was instantly drawn to the jewel toned colours all wrapped up in the beautiful purple and crystal packaging of the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette. Plus for the price of £42 for 20 eye shadows, there was definitely no argument in the store - this palette was coming home with me, whether it liked it or not...

I'm going to absolutely honest with you, apart from the Urban Decay Naked palettes and their eye pencils - I'm not too familiar with the brand but from what I've tried I definitely wanted to try more. This Vice 2 palette was up my street because I am ashamed to say, I'm absolute palette and eye shadow hoarder.

What most impressed me about this palette was the unique shades and finishes of the shadows. I love duo-chrome finishes on eye shadows but they are not too easy to come by and this palette has quite a few along with some high shine shimmer shadows as well (shell shock is absolutely amazing!). Not one shadow in this palette is poorly pigmented. The eye shadow have a soft buttery texture and apply so easily. Not to mention they stay pretty long on the lid without creasing even without a primer.

The packaging of this has to be one of the best I've seen on a larger eye shadow palette. It comes with a full size mirror and the packaging is not only sturdy but cute with a crystal logo on purple marble effect background. An when you press the button on the palette the lid smoothly lifts up by itself. I also enjoyed using the double sided brush inside this palette too.

Nearly no complaints.. Maybe just the one but it's more of a critique - I would of love to have seen some more matte shades especially some shades for blending and this would have made this palette perfect for travelling and using on it own. But I still like regardless. 4 out of 5.
