Urban Decay Vice 2 | First Impression and Swatches

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Welcome back dolls!
After receiving my Vice 2 palette as a birthday gift and posting a picture on Instagram, I got some requests for a review and swatches.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to play around with it as much as I'd like to, so this won't be much of a review. Instead, this will be more of a first impression post.
I like to create a few looks and really test a product out before I write an honest review on it.
So let's get on to the good stuff!!

First Glance | At first glance I fell in love with the packaging! It comes in a beautiful deep purple color and the UD emblem is amazing! Talk about bling, bling! Unlike most palettes, this one comes with a button, rather than a clasp, and it opens on its own. Picture this---opening palette, bright lights flashing and background music playing! LOL! Too much?
First Impression | This palette has a ton of glittery and shimmery shades, which I don't mind at all---great for date nights or special occasions. There are a few shades that have glitter, so fall-out is definitely a concern, but not a deal-breaker for me. Like I mentioned earlier I still haven't played with them enough to give a full review. I have only done one eye look with a few colors and swatched the rest of the shades, so I can't really tell you whether or not there is a ton fall-out. I can say that the shadows are extremely soft and smooth. They swatched well and the colors I used blended great. They are all very pigmented and creamy, the color combinations are endless. 

 *Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, X-Rated*

          *Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash, Poison*
*Radar, Damaged, Voodoo, Betrayal, Derailed*

 *Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush, Rewind*
That's all for now, if you guys have any requests for any looks please feel free to let me know! I am not a makeup artist, but I enjoy the art of makeup and creating different looks.
Do you guys have this palette?
What are some of your favorite shades?
Should I add this to my Color Combo series?
Until next time!
