Oh Urban Decay, you’ve done it again. For Holiday 2013, there is a brand new Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette. I already own the original Vice palette and I love it to pieces because all of the shades are brand new. The Vice 2 palette has TWENTY brand new eyeshadow shades and a dual-sided brush. I’m a sucker for anything Urban Decay and I’m a sucker for their eyeshadow palettes, especially when every single shade is brand new. I’ve got swatches inside, and you don’t want to miss the beauty that is this palette!
The packaging is always gorgeous with Urban Decay products. The outside is purple (my favorite color), and it is typical edgy-meets-glam. Inside, there are twenty brand new shades of eyeshadow. There is also a dual-sided eyeshadow brush, which I actually like and use. I have one of these from another Urban Decay palette and it makes a good blending brush.
The Vice 2 Palette has a nice mix of shimmer, glitter, and matte shades. I am swatching by row, and have labeled the first set of swatches by shade name, and left the second set of swatches without shade names.
The first row is a mix of your typical smoky eye shades…black, grey, and a super metallic silver. There are two pink shades in this row, as well. That silver metallic shade is unreal! It is the most insanely pigmented and metallic silver I have ever used. All of the shades are soft and super rich in color.
The second row features two blue shades, a metallic gold, a shimmering olive green, and a dark grey.
The third row features a shimmering medium brown, a metallic emerald green, a darker and lighter duo-chrome purple shade, and a dark chocolate. This row is stunning and the color payoff is fantastic.
The fourth and last row is going to please neutral eyeshadow lovers. It features a mix of shimmer and matte neutral shades. The matte shades are always fantastic for blending out the crease of the eye.
Overall, I’m extremely pleased with this palette. Twenty brand new shades of Urban Decay eyeshadow? You just can’t go wrong. There is a shade and finish for everything here. The shades are so rich and pigmented. If you’re on the fence about this one, I’d definitely recommend scooping it up!
The Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette is limited edition for Holiday 2013 and features twenty new eyeshadow shades. Each palette retails for $59.00 USD. You can find this palette at Urban Decay’s website. I imagine that this palette will also be sold at Sephora and Ulta stores nationwide, as well, though I haven’t seen them in stock yet. The entire Urban Decay holiday collection looks stunning this year, so definitely take a look.
