Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette (My Thoughts)

Well first of all I have to say a big Thankyou to Littlemisstyleguru ( for gifting me this palette. You didn't have to Vinny and I do really appreciate it :D

So this is the first ever Urban Decay product I have tried (I'm really tempted to get the Electric palette when I've got some more money) and I have to say I am seriously in love with it. Not only is the packaging amazing but the eyeshadows themselves are just....WOW!

This palette retails at around £42.00 and like the Vice 1 Palette it is limited edition, so it's really you have to get it when it's out kinda thing.

Okay so this is what the palette looks like. It's a really nice purple marble effect, with a jewelled UD in the middle. When you open the palette it has a full mirror and 20 eyeshadows in total. The palette also comes with a double ended brush ( the bristles are synthetic and it is really good for applying and blending eyeshadow). All the eyeshadows are individually named and here are the names:

Top Row: Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, X-rated
Second Row: Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash, Poison
Third Row: Radar, Damaged, Voodoo, Betrayal, Derailed
Fourth Row: Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush, Rewind

They are all brilliantly named and believe me when I say, that there are so many Makeup tutorial names to make out of them :). All of these eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and they are so easy to blend. There are a mixture of matt and shimmery shades, so you are able to create everyday looks, going out looks, crazy looks, colourful looks etc.

Here are what the eyeshadow look like swatched and this is without using a primer. The eyeshadows have a pretty amazing staying power, but I have noticed that if you don't use a primer they can stain just the tiniest bit (its nothing to drastic but I would recommend using a primer). My overall thoughts on this palette are that its amazing and such a great addition to my makeup collection.

 Once again Thankyou Littlemissstyleguru I really do appreciate it. Ever since I got this palette, it has been my go to palette, especially when I'm going to work, as everything is in on place and I'm not rushing trying to find eyeshadows.

Would I recommend this product? Yep :)
Would I try more Urban Decay Products? I plan to :)
Stay Beautiful
Stay Awesome
