Review and Swatches: Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette

Hello Dolls! 
Long time no see. I'm happy to report that I finally have a fully functioning laptop once again! Since this was the only thing preventing me from actually being able to write blog posts, edit videos/pictures, I'm glad to say that I will now be posting at lease once a week! 

Today, I will be bringing you a review on one of this years most talked about palette. 
Urban Decays Vice 2!



If you already own the original Vice palette and are debating whether or not buying the second one will be worth it is important to know that this palette contains 20 brand new, never before seen shades from Urban Decay. The overall color scheme is different as well. The shades in this palette are more dark based, jewel colors than the original, with some neutrals thrown in the mix. This palette contains very little matte shades, only 2 true mattes in the entire palette, which is one less matte than the original Vice palette.





The packaging of this palette is amazing. It is a bit bulkier but in the greatest of ways. The design and colors of the packaging absolutely sucked me in. It's a beautifully marbled design full of purple and magenta goodness. The inside packaging is no less beautiful. First of all the palette opens by itself once the button on the front is pushed, and remains open to reveal a full size mirror! Most palettes come with mirrors that end up being completely useless because they're either too small, or are on a lid that continuously falls, but not this one! This is a perfect palette to take on vacations, sleep over or anywhere where you think you may need a good size mirror. 



The Vice 2 palette comes with 20 brand new, never before seen eyeshadows. The palette contains four rows of five eyeshadows, none in a specific order. It also holds a double ended brush with a regular eyelid brush and a blending/crease brush.

Now onto my favorite part!! The shadows. 

Row 1:
Smokeout: Satin dark taupe-y charcoal black 
Great pigmentation, and incredibly smooth.

Lovesick: Matte black with silver micro-glitter.
Not Urban Decays greatest black, and the silver glitter doesn't transfer well onto the lid 

Shellshock: Metallic silver. 
Great pigmentation with amazing texture. 

Coax: Metallic pink with gold micro glitter. 
Great pigmentation and little to no fall out from the glitter. 

X-Rated: Sating baby pink. 
Incredibly buttery texture, with good pigmentation


Row 2:
Prank: Matte dark navy with turquoise micro glitter.
Amazing pigmentation!!

Madness: Metallic jewel blue with blue glitter.
Good pigmentation and finish.

Strike: Metallic antiqued gold with silver glitter.
Good pigmentation, and a nice different shade for this palette.

Stash: Shimmer deep olive green.
Good pigmentation a darker version of MAC's Sumptuous Olive.

Poison: Satin charcoal with blue micro glitter.
Good pigmentation and glitter transfer.


Row 3:
Radar: Metallic brown, copper with gold glitter.
It's such a nice neutral color in this palette of jewel toned brights.

Damaged: Metallic emerald green.
Perfect pigmentation and absolutely one of my favorites in the palette!

Voodoo: Metallic purple with purple and magenta glitter.
Such an amazing, original color.

Betrayal: Satin purple and pink duo chrome.
Great pigmentation, a darker more blue based version of Urban Decays Fishnet eyeshadow.

Derailed: Metallic medium taupe-y brown.
Good pigmentation, but overall nothing too special


Row 4:
 Dope: Satin Champagne.
Probably one of the best champagne shadows I've ever seen!

Toxic: Metallic pink based copper with slight golden shimmer.
Amazing pigmentation and finish!

Habit: Matte nude.
Perfect as a highlight color for more olive skinned ladies.

Ambush: Metallic brown with a slight turquoise shift.
Great pigmentation, it just feels like every company is coming out with
a shade in this same color.

Rewind: Matte medium brown.
Nice pigmentation and a great color to neutralize any look!




This palette overall is a big hit for me. There's a great mix of shadows that can be used to create any type of look, from neutral everyday to the most extravagant night look! This is a great gift for any makeup lover this season, and a definite mush have!
This palette is available only for a limited edition, and at $59 it's a pretty good deal for all the shadows you receive!!

You can purchase your own Vice 2 Palette from Urban Decay, Sephora, Ulta and Beauty.com!

FOTD: Bruised Unicorn

Hello Dolls! I totally got set back on this months Glamour Doll Eyes Insider Program look. But somehow I managed to finish my final look a day before the dead line!
I originally planned on doing a nice blown out light purple look, but as you can see it took a completely different turn! It was one of those things where you can see where I was heading, yet you saw where everything went wrong.
I ended up making my eyes looked bruised and sickly, with a little touch of lime green in the center. But oddly enough I fell in love with the outcome.

FOTD: Ravishing Taylor (Featuring Glamour Doll Eyes)

Hello Dolls! Last months craziness ended up not only  putting me behind schedule but also Vanessa, the owner and creator of Glamour Doll Eyes. Her schedule ended up so crazy and chaotic that she put the Insider Program on hold and gave us a month long break from creating looks. It was a nice break last month since everything was so hectic, for what appears to have been a lot of people,  but once I received this months package I was so ready to dive right in and create new looks using all Glamour Doll Eyes pigments!

I ended up doing a look with what have been my go to colors lately, red and burnt orange. Only this time I ended up glitzing and smoking it up with a metallic red all over the eyelid and some black pigment!!

Review: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame

Hello Dolls!
Today I bring you a review on one of the new Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks! I picked one up last week at my local Sephora after waiting for them to be stocked. 

Urban Decay release 22 brand new shades of lipstick to their already vast cosmetics line last month. 
Ranging from the simplest nude to the most beautiful dark plums. They're all marketed to be highly pigmented with a hint of "creamy shiny", long lasting and lip nourishing. 

Packaging: 
The lipsticks all come in a purple box with the Urban Decay logo and product name in silver, which tends to be UD signature packaging. On the box the lipstick shade name is written on a sticker that is the same color as the lipstick. 

 

The lipstick packaging itself is just beautiful!!
 The bullet is a amazing rose gold color with "Urban Decay" inscribed into the side and "UD" inscribed on the lid. The shade color is placed on a sticker at the bottom. The inside case that holds the lipsticks is a nice metallic maroon/purple shade that's a nice contrast to the elegant rose gold exterior. 

The packaging itself seems to be quite durable and heavy duty. UD did not skimp on the packaging for these lipsticks!

FOTD: Hay Foxxie

Hello Dolls!! What two looks in a row in less than a week?! Whhaaat?!
It's been a while since I got to play with makeup as much as I have been these past couple of days! About four days ago I received Glamour Doll Eyes new Instagram collection in the mail and fell in love with the colors!
 I decided to go with a different color combination than I normally would use. I used burnt orange, and burgundy colors in the crease and lower lash line and a bright cyan blue all over the eyelid!

FOTD: Sweet Damson

Hello Dolls! I can not believe it has been a month since I last posted on here! Work has been kicking my ass and I finally have a decent break for the next four days!! I haven't done anything but winged liner and mascara for the past month so I really wanted to have something dramatic going on! You guys have no idea how good it feels to have all of this makeup on for the first time in a month!

I kept it really warm and smoky using all MAC shadows and one of the new pressed pigments. I broke open my new Urban Decay Lipstick for this look as well! I just went all out with boldness in my eyes and lips! 

It's gonna take a bit to get used to writing posts again so, I'm sorry for the rambling, and I hope you enjoy the look!

FOTD: Fall Awakening

Hello Dolls!!
Today I bring you a look I did yesterday. I wanted to do something a bit more vampy, and fall inspired. Since I'm a Texan living in Connecticut the weather here has resembled fall more than summer. I mean, it's like constantly 70 degrees here and I'm used to triple digit weather this time of the year. It may be summer here I'm feeling the vampy looks! I hope y'all enjoy this months last look for Glamour Doll Eyes Insider Program!

 Shadows Used: Vampire Wedding, Super Nova, Light Speed, Ancestry, Chivalrous, Presumptuous

 

Lip Combo: OCC Lip Tars in Clear, NFSW, Sybil

FOTD: Pink Lemonade

Hey Dolls! Today I wanted to bring you a look using some colors that I wouldn't normally wear. And pink and yellow are my definite top least worn colors. I was weary about the yellow in the lash line making me look sickly, but I really was pleasantly surprised of how it came out. For a bit of bang I added some pink glitter into the inner corner of the eyes.  This is my third look for the Glamour Doll Eyes Insider program for this month, so all of the colors used even the glitter are from GDE! 
This look is a different direction for me to take but I really liked it, and hope you guys do as well!

Todays Shadows:
Chocoholic, Obscure, Ancestry, Light Speed, Cajun and Ditzy

FOTD: Grease Lightning

Hello Dolls! Finally, I get around to posting this look I did last Friday. I was heading out to my nieces makeup for her formal and decided to go a little more natural.

Which, thanks to work I am lagging on this month. -_- But, anyways, I hope you enjoy today's look, well last weeks look!
