Urban Decay’s The Vice Palette Preview!

As promised in my last post, here is the preview of Urban Decay’s new The Vice Palette! And it is GORGEOUS.

The full palette with a bonus self portrait.

I mean, I really swore myself off from purchasing any more eyeshadow palettes, but I really could not let this one slide by! The packaging, the colors, the exclusivity… It was just irresistible. After the jump, more pictures and sample swatches!

So as you can see, the box is so very luxe. It’s very velvety feeling, with a jeweled logo and a button to open the palette.

Pretty colors!

The Vice Palette is 20 brand-new and exclusive to the set colors, using UD’s “new and improved” formula. All the shadows are incredibly luxe and velvety, everything the UD’s shadows are known for. This palette also contains a great mixture of brights and neutrals making it something you can easily use everyday and to turn a day look into an evening one. The Vice Palette retails for $59 and can be purchased here.

The shadows are almost full-sized, weighing in at 0.03 oz each. A regular UD single shadow is 0.05 oz, retailing for $18 each. So doing a little math shows that The Vice Palette works out to $2.95 per shadow. That’s crazy! And that’s not even counting the double-ended brush, which is a lot nicer than the sponge tip applicators you usually see.
