UD Vice 2: Part 2

Swatches and FOTD:

 First Row: Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, X-rated

I am LOVING Shellshock. It is the most gorgeous shadow I've touched. It looks almost wet and it has the most beautiful color on my NC 25 skintone. Smokeout, the matte black is of course a great color to have in general!
 Second Row: Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash, Poison

Stash is a color that stands out for me in this row. It's a great shimmery olive color. Madness is also a gorgeous, vibrant blue.
 Third Row: Radar, Damaged, Voodoo, Betrayal, Derailed

Radar is wonderful. It's a great coppery/gold color in this collection. Voodoo is gorgeous violet, perfect for my kind of deep smokey purple (for fall). Derailed is great too in a collection. I'm not loving Betrayal though, especially not next to such a vibrant color like Voodoo. It's missing a punch or two.
Fourth Row: Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush, Rewind

This last row is your basics. Dope is great for a brow highlight. Toxic is a great rose gold color. Habit is a nice cream base to set your lids. Rewind, well, you can see below, I can use rewind to fill my brows! 

 Here's my FOTD (photo of the day)

The first picture is the before of course...product list below:

I achieved this eye look using the Vice 2 palette:

I primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion
I then filled my brows using Rewind eyeshadow
I used Habit as a base all over my lids
Then dusted Shellshock on the inner 1/3 of the lid
I then used Voodoo on the outer 2/3 of my lids and blended out
I then took Poison with a flat blush and use just a little bit in the outer corner (outer v) and blended out
Finally, I used Smokeout with a liner brush and softly lined my top and bottom lash line
I also went over my bottom lash line with the Voodoo color as well
To finish off. I popped on some false lashes!

So what do I think of this? It's a great palette. Is it worth the $59? I don't know....I have a LOT of palettes. What makes this palette so much better than Naked, Naked 2, Lorac Pro? Why is it more expensive? I think it could use a bit more mattes. I do love that it gives much more color options (especially compared to Naked, Naked 2). Will it be a MUST HAVE like the first Vice? Probably...So yes, grab it up if you are a fan of Urban Decay shadows. These are HIGHLY pigmented and the colors are very versatile. If you ever complained that the Naked and Naked 2 just don't offer enough color options, now it's your chance to grab something different!

You can find this product at:

Urban Decay and Sephora for $59

I give this product a 8.5/10
