After recently picking up the Gwen Stefani, Mega Pro Palette 2, Stardust and Tartelette palettes I told myself, “No more!” That’s it. Well until next year when I would allow myself to purchase the Tartelette in Bloom palette. But that’s besides the point. There was no way I was adding yet another eyeshadow palette to my collection this year. Or so I thought.
Then the limited edition Urban Decay Vice4 Palette dropped to just $39 for $60. It wasn’t even on my radar at the moment but I was curious about it when it first released and it would come up to just $31 with my discount. “What the heck?” I thought. It’s just one more palette.
So I went ahead and picked up from work one day. I was a little hesitant at first because Vice4 is pretty shimmer heavy but I decided it was worth a try considering it still contains a solid transition (Bitter) and crease (Delete) shade. It’s rare for me to be able to complete an entire look using a single palette but Vice4 actually makes it possible. Even with all of those dang shimmers.
I can’t lie though. They’re quite beautiful! At first, I didn’t think the color scheme made sense with Vice4 but once swatched I can clearly see the rainbow theme and where Urban Decay was going with it. And I appreciate it too. As I get older, I like to stick to my neutrals but it’s nice to have a variety of bright and bold colors at my disposal to play with. Vice4 is a much needed inspiration and creativity boost that I could totally use after binging on neutral palettes this season. I just started playing with it on one eye out of boredom but I’m already digging Vice4. The quality seems on par with the good ol’ UD palettes I know and love. If you happen to spot a Vice4 palette at your local Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom or Macy’s I recommend picking it up while the price is good!
