Urban Decay The Vice Palette Review, Swatches, HQ Photos

By  |  24 Comments

OH MY GOSHHHH. This is the newest thing out from Urban Decay, and I gotta tell you, it does NOT disappoint. The Vice Palette is amazing in so many ways, so let me share a few-

  • 20 brand new colors never released before
  • PRACTICAL, sleek packaging
  • Full mirror that is nice quality- no funhouse mirror here!
  • Mirror actually stands UP on its own, perfect for traveling or using without holding the palette
  • pop-open clip in front- easy to open without damaging shadows
  • nice mix of textures
Overall, I’m in love. The only thing I would change is to add more mattes- there are only two, and they are more highlight/transitioning colors than colors I’d use to actually SEE. This palette retails for $59 on Urban Decay’s Website, which brings each shadow just under $3. For 20 brand new colors, I’d say thats not a bad deal!

Here are some photos of the palette and close ups of each shadow. The swatches are not over any type of base, and are not packed on- they are just as-is so you can see how amazing they are with no help.

    I love these color but whenever I purchase UD eyeshadows they have so much fall out!!! I’m afraid to purchase this one

    Is it just me, or are a lot of these colours just renamed regular shades? Noise looks like Woodstock, Penny Lane looks like Chopper?

    I can not WAIT to go to my local saphora tomorrow and pick up this pallette! I can already tell its going to be a new favorite. Omg every single one of these shades or BEAUTIFUL and it has a perfect mix of wearable and fun colors!

    I think Noise is a deeper more vibrant pink than Woodstock, and Penny Lane looks lighter and more golden than Chopper, in my opinion, after comparing Leesha’s swatches of these with Temptalia’s swatches of Chopper and Woodstock.

    I’m in love with chaos. I don’t need the whole set though. I have so many UD shadows that look similar to some of these

    I’m really excited for Penny Lane too because UD needed a good true copper color.

    Most of them look a lot like other Urban Decay shades. Noise is like Woodstock, Provocateur is like Sin, Laced is like Tease, etc. But, otherwise, the palette looks beautiful and I WANT IT.

    Great review. Picked it up on ebay for 49.00 with free shipping. My advice to people wanting it is check there before you hit up retail. Exact same palette and colors, authentic. I love me some UD but if I can save some money that’s even better. The seller I got mine from is lily_ann1
