I am a big fan of Urban Decays eyeshadow's, i have both the Naked 2 and 3 palette and love them both. I've never been massively fussed about the previous Vice palettes, however as soon as i saw pictures of this Vice 3 i knew i had to have it, i think it was the gorgeous berry shades that drew me in, it was released online on my payday and i bought it instantly, it was like it was meant to be! Yes the Urban Decay palettes aren't the cheapest on the market, the Vice 3 was £42 which did pain me slightly but if you think it will coat you £38 for a Charlotte Tilbury quad it doesn't seem quite so bad. For your money you are getting twenty delicious new and never seen before shades, inside some of the most amazing and well thought out packaging.
The palette comes in the box inside its very own bag which i thought was a great touch, its a great size to use as a makeup bag or as suggested on the box to keep your makeup brushes in. On to the palette itself, for the Vice 3 Urban Decay have streamlined the palette for a much sleeker size, however it still has a very handy massive mirror inside and a double ended brush which is great. I love the bright fun colours and the lime green jewel like Vice in the lid i think it just sets it aside from any other palette on the market.
On to the shadows which are set in rows of five, neutrals on the left, jewel tones in the center and smokey shades on the right. You get a nice mixture of matte, shimmer and metallic shadows in some of the most beautiful shades, some of my favorites are the metallic which i think are the best quality and pigmentation particularly Lucky a warm bronze and Sonic the most amazing cranberry shade, the metallic shadows are smooth and buttery and last all day, very impressed. One thing i will say about the palette is there is a variation in quality in the shadows as much as i was impressed with the metallic shades i have found some of the other shadows to be slightly powdery and not as strong in pigmentation which is a bit disappointing. I think there are so many possible looks with this palette, there are some quite bright daunting shades Dragon for example a bold green but i think combined with the mixture of more neutral shades there a lot more wearable and there is a little something for everyone.
Overall i am really impressed with the Vice 3 palette, i think Urban Decay have done a great job and i wont be putting it down anytime soon, this will defiantly be my chosen palette for the party season!
What do you think of the Vice 3 palette?
