Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay – Review & Swatches

 

Hi everyone! It’s Sharon here. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Yes, I finally got my hands on the long awaited Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay from Sephora. This is the latest Vice collection palette if I’m not mistaken and yes, I’m super excited to do color swatches and post review for you guys.

When I think of Urban Decay Vice, I instantly think of punchy color and ubiquitous glitter. Oh yes, give it all to me! Whahaha!!! Anyone feel the same way or is it just me?

An awesome packaging that wow me from right from the start.  The Vice palette has an awesome colored web design on the outer casing – or maybe it’s meant to look like shattered glass?  In any case I really like the packaging, and also the black and silver holographic makeup pouch that it comes in – great for keeping the palette safe from scratches when travelling, or your could fill it with your brushes and other makeup. So another reason to makes Vice 4 a great addition to my palette collection!

Inside the palette you also get a nice big mirror, and a double-ended eye brush, which is a good quality and properly useful brush, rather than those annoying sponge applicators that everybody hates.

So here is the review.

The Vice 4 palette contains a variation of colors with mostly satin, shimmer and glittery finishes.

Given the variety of hues, I fell in love with the Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette upon first glance, zeroing i0n on the pinkish orange shades that seemed to be missing from my arsenal. There are a few matte finishes (with “Bitter” being a standout), but most are either shimmery or glittery, with varying degrees of pigment and fallout. It doesn’t bother me since I always tap my brush before applying.

The size or this palette is the same as Vice 2 that I have. But this one is far thinner than the latter. I’ll do a side by side palette comparison on my next blog post for you guys.

Scroll further down for color swatches:-

This palette contains a mix of matte and shimmer shades in both warm and cool tones. Initially, I wasn’t very inspired by the shades but after swatching them I changed my mind all together. A really interesting mix of tones which are great individually or layered on top of each other.

Mattes: Bitter (slightly powdery; warm medium brown), Discreet (smooth beige-y pink), Framed (light apricot)

Satin: Bones (a little powdery), 1985 (bright fuchsia), Underhand (royal purple), Harlot (lilac), Robbery (silver with a pink undertone)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shimmers: Fastball (chunky, shimmery warm toned pink), Grasshopper (stunning bright green), C-Note (teal with monochromatic shimmer), Beat Down (smooth deep purple with purple shimmer)

Glitters: FLAME (Orange with gold shimmer/glitter), Grip (taupey-grey with monochromatic glitter), Low (smokey purple with silver glitter), Arctic (turquiose with silver glitter looks different in the pan), Crowbar (grey with gold reflect/glitter), Pandemonium (purple with sliver/purple/pink glitter) THESE WILL HAVE FALLOUT.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The swatches of the eyeshadows on my hand are without primer. This is to give you an idea of their opacity without building. If you want more impact and longer wear, I highly recommend using a primer underneath these or any other eyeshadows.

For the glittery shades like “Flame,” “Low,” and “Crowbar,” in particular, make sure you use primer and/or use your finger to apply (instead of a brush) OR apply with a damp brush which usually works for me.

First Row:

This one seems to have a lot more colors that can be used regardless if it’s day time or night time. How cool is that, right!

Just look how pigmented and beautiful these shadows are. The colors are intense and you could definitely create many different look with this palette.

Second Row:

Third Row:

Fourth Row:

The only complain I want to put it out in terms of chalky and powdery shadows are the shades in Low and Crowbar. These are the only two shadows that I don’t really like on texture and formula consistency. It’s as if they’re from different palette all together.

My eyeshadows and falsies matches so well together I had to document it. I’m so impressed with all of the colors and they’re so blendable. Oh boy! The looks you can make are endless I tell you.

I would definitely recommend this to people looking for something different and looking to add a pop of color to their eye looks.

Are you a Vice palette brights fan, or do you prefer the tamer Naked collections?  I love to hear your comment below. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Back To Basics – NAKED PALETTE BY URBAN DECAY

naked basics palette by UD

You’ve been pleading with Urban Decay to release a matte version of the Naked Palette and Naked Basics is their answer. This is not their new releases but rather the contrary. I wanted to get this Naked Basics Palette to compare it with my Naked 2 Basics Palette (which I did a full review, click link) for you guys. I just received it a few days ago.

color pan UD

This is a six full sized eyeshadows in a plastic rosy pink packaging. Net wt: 0.30 oz for US$27.00 or CN$34.00 at Sephora in-store or online and at Ulta. The packaging is light and very easy to bring anywhere. It comes in a full size mirror with neutral shade eyeshadows.

There are also three light shades in the palette, though they each have a different tone. So, they’ll work differently for cool, warm, and neutral looks but can feel repetitive.

color swatches NK basics

Here is the color breakdown from left to right: Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte), Foxy (very light yellow/beige matte), Walk of Shame (very light pinky nude matte), Naked 2 (rosy taupe matte), Faint (warm, dusty brown matte), and Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte). These are all matte neutral finishing shadows. I just want to put it out for you to know.

ccolor swatches closed up NK

In terms of the texture – it feels silky, smooth and phenomenal. It blends well and works even more intense with primer. The top swatch is on bare arm and the bottom is with primer. Spotted any difference? These are all lighter shade shadows for cooler undertones, if you’re looking for a neutral finish. On my medium skin tone, I’ve to work on with primer to get the lighter shade more visible on my eyes.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

If you’re a fan of neutrals, or you know someone who loves or perhaps, has to wear neutrals, I highly recommend, for this is a must-have palette. But if you already have Naked Palettes (Naked & Naked 2) then you might want to skip this one out since I noticed a few similar shades on Crave=Blackout, Venus=Bootycall, Naked 2 = Naked and Faint=Buck.

These shadows are densely pigmented with stay true-to-pan color payoff.  I wore this over immediately after taken pictures and swatches in the morning and the staying power was amazing. It doesn’t show any fading for half the day I was wearing it and it stretched until evening–with a primer. I’m liking it and will continue to wear them by rotating it with my other favorite palettes. But, honestly I feel that Naked Basics 2 gives me more color payoff for my skin toned while Naked Basics has lots of highlighter to play with 🙂

So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you find it interesting and helpful. Until next time, stay beautiful!

What is your favorite shade from the Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette? Don’t forget to leave your comments down below. I love to hear what you think.

Thank you for the love and for taking the time to read *-*

NAKED 2 Palette by URBAN DECAY|Swatches

 

Hey gorgeous!

I’m here to talk about another of my favorite palette from Urban Decay. This time round is the Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette. Many of you know that I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes and for those who don’t, I guess after reading this post you will get to know and understand why I love Urban Decay’s eyeshadow palettes.

On my several posts back, I did reviews on Naked 3 and Naked palette but today I’m super duper excited to be doing color swatches out of this Naked 2 palette that I just acquired recently. So, now I’m officially a proud owner of three Urban Decay Naked Palettes… whoa…ha!ha!

DSC06300 DSC06302

The packaging for NAKED 2 is quite similar to Naked 3 which is of metal tin packaging. It consists of twelve beautiful color shades for natural everyday wear and evening smoky eyes look.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($54.00 for 0.71 oz.) contains twelve eyeshadows:

DSC06309

So many times, I’ll come across a neutral matte eyeshadow and first I’m like “yay” and then when I noticed the shades are all so shimmery that my next reaction goes “boo” 😛

I didn’t mean it in a wrong way. I mean, I love sparkle and shine but sometimes it’s just nice to have one or two shades of matte in the palette. I’m always happy with Urban decay’s eyeshadow palettes since it seems to keep things interesting.

naked 1,2,3

So, this is another reason I’m crushing on this Naked 2 palette. It has twelve gorgeous neutral shades in shimmery or frosted finish are the Half Baked (Copper Brown), Booty Call (White Beige), Chopper (Orange Red), Snake Bite (Dark Bronze), Suspect (Champagne Bronze), Pistol (Grey Brown), Verve (Beige Grey), YDK (Coppery Red) and Busted (Burgundy) and yay!!! – three matte shades of Foxy (Yellow Beige), Tease (Mauve Brown) and Blackout (Dark Black).

naked 2 palette shadows

It comes with a dual-ended brush – the Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush. I love the fact that this Naked 2 is also of warmer-toned shades as Naked 1 even though there are many similar shades to merit both. But I’m all about neutral warm shade, babe! (giggling!!!)

Behold as I guide you inside Naked 2 eyeshadow palette. Be marvelled by the beauty of this yet another incredible Naked palette by Urban Decay.

nk2 palete

Out of the twelve shades only five are NEW. They are Foxy, Chopper, Tease and Pistol. My favorite shades are Half-Baked, Chopper, Snake Bite and Pistol. I’m planning to do a FOTD makeup tutorial in my next post using these favorite color shades I mentioned with a review up next.

color swatches

The quality, overall in my opinion is good. I love how pigmented each formula is but I don’t think it’s as good across the board as the first palette, but for $54 and twelve full-sized eyeshadows it’s certainly worth taking a look at.

I just think that if you have Naked 1 already then Naked 2 isn’t much of a leap. I believe that Naked 2 is born out of demand for its warm-toned neutral shades from its predecessor while promoting a few new shades for us to play with.

It’s available at Sephora, Amazon, ebay and online.

Which Naked Palette will you pick?

Urban Decay Naked Palette|Swatches|Review

 

Hey my loves!!!

Remember I did a review a couple of month back on Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and today I’m going to share with you guys another of Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette which I picked up recently. I love the Naked Palette since I heard raves on all these Naked Palettes and I as usual curious to find out and gladly try them for my next makeup review.

Naked Palette

So, as you can see I have another palette under my paw and I just can’t help but to scream in excitement when I saw this parcel in my mail box. Let me tell my love for Urban Decay palette is true unless proven otherwise.

Oh gosh!!! Here with me is the ORIGINAL Naked Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay and I’m so excited to share my opinion and thought on this palette with you guys.

package thickness

This Naked Urban Decay palette packaging is made of velvety chocolate brown exterior with golden trim logo on the casing. Inside the palette is a average size mirror with twelve lovely color shadows. I personally love, love this palette. It has a very sophisticated look and I think this is the best palette to date from Urban Decay. The darker shade looks perfect for smokey eyes look and the lighter for daytime makeup.

naked shadow palette

Included in the palette is this soft synthetic Karma shadow brush for blending. I’m mesmerized by these amazing shades on this palette. Every shade is so soft, smooth and incredibly pigmented even the mattes.

Many of you may know that I did a review on Naked 3 Palette on my previous post and in comparison with this Naked Palette I find that the latter has more neutral shades which you can really work on for a nude or dramatic finish look. Whereas, the Naked 3 seems to lean more to the pinkish hues that gives beautiful, soft rose shimmery finish. I love both palettes very much and again the color payoff  is so amazing and I just love how easy it was to blend with a drop dead stunning look. I will be doing a makeup tutorial for daytime and night time makeup in my next post using this fabulous Urban Decay Naked Palette.

color swatches naked palette

After doing the color swatches, here is what I found: There are only two matte shadows and they’re Naked and Buck. The rest ten shadows are either with frosty or shimmer finish. There are five new shades in this palette. In my opinion, Gunmetal and Creep looks very close in tone while Darkhorse is of .

Here is my Nude look using Naked Palette by Urban Decay vs Naked by Kim Kardashian !!!

Behind this box packaging … it says “Go Naked and not neutral …. clothing is optional”! lol

It’s A…MA…ZING!!! Worth every dime in my opinion, if you ask me.

Whatever you’re looking for in an eyeshadow is all compacted here in the Naked Palette. A very versatile eyeshadow that you can wear day and night. A must have!

I’m not affiliated with them whatsoever but I just wanted share the love with you guys.
