Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani I honestly tried to resist it, i did… I kept saying to myself that the shades are too light, the pink and blue ill probably never touch and ‘not another nude palette’. Well, all of this went out the window when i’ve seen the palette in all its glory in Debenhams. Buttery soft eye shadows, a great mixture of matte and shimmer and of course, such wearable nudes. Gwen you did very well!

UDxGwen Eyeshadow Palette From the lot, my favorites would be Punk – a rich, warm plummy brown, Zone – your standard neutral brown and Serious – a matte cool toned charcoal. Close its oddly enough, 1987 – its not your typical flashy golden yellow, more like an antique, bronze gold. Actually and i might be wrong, I have a feeling that Harajuku, Danger and 1987 were boroughed from some old limited edition Lancome eye shadows, now with Urban Decay being part of the L’Oreal family.

Irish Beauty Blogger I’m wearing on my eyes a combination of Blonde (all over lid), Zone (on the lid) and Punk (heavily blended in the crease) teamed up with liquid black liner. You cant see any of my hard work due to my deep set, hooded lids which basically makes me a terrible beauty blogger… #blessed. Trust me though when im saying that the colors were a dream to blend, lasted all day on – granted with a primer under and were intense enough to satisfy my smokey eye cravings.

On my lips i have one of Gwen’s new lipsticks that were sampled inside the box – the sheer Ex-Girlfriend, a wonderful soft pink nude, moisturizing and glossy. Very impressed, cant wait for the release date!

Overall, for โ‚ฌ46 this is a wonderful all round palette mixing a good selection of matte neutrals with the occasional pop of color. Having a matte black its also a huge bonus, as it can always dupe for an eyeliner when needed or just add more depth to your look. Packaging wise, i really feel that Urban Decay has stepped up the game and created a truly rock chic looking palette.

If you think you don’t need it, you are definitely missing out!

      Im the opposite, always go for palettes! Im like a magpie, attracted by all the pretty, shiny colors. Plus i find them better value, despite almost never fully finishing one.

    I adore the packaging, it looks gorgeous! I am not sure about the bottom row, however the rest are the shades I can wear. Even tho I like the look of it, I am not sure if I need it ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, the bottom row was the part i wasnt sure of too but in retrospect i will defintely use most of the shades – not so much the pink.

      In my case, it was a question of want not need :).
