Urban Decay is releasing a brand new palette consisting of 20 brand new shades. Although Urban Decay is not my favorite brand, the release of their new palette always excites me. This palette is going to be officially launched in November island wide in Singapore. But as Kas and Mag written in their blog, This palette is going to be available on 6th October 2012 at Sephora ION from 2-6pm. I went down on that day and decided to grab this one. This palette retails for $88.

I like this packaging. It looks pretty and it looks rather velvety from certain lighting. There’s a rubberized feeling when touching this palette. I’m glad that Urban Decay includes this dual brush which can be useful rather than sponges that other brands are usually includes. At one end, the brush can be used for eyeshadow and at the other end the brush can be used for blending or crease brush.
The quality of this eye palette is generally good. They are pigmented, long lasting (especially when paired with UD primer potion) and the color range is wide. There are numbers of neutrals in this palette but it also includes few unique colors like Chaos (matte electric blue), Unhinged (shimmering turquoise blue) and Noise (a very bright pink with very slight shimmer). Most of the colors blends very well; pigmented and very less fallouts. However few colors can be very bad in terms of fallout. The colors are Muse, Jagged, and Provocateur. I am quite disappointed that Provocateur has very bad fallout issue because I really like the color, the color is just so pretty.
From these 20 colors, I have few favorite color which I am sure I will be using a lot. My favorite colors are Blitz, Occupy, Provocateur (despite the fallout, I still love the color so much ),Rapture, Vice, Armor, Nevermind. Oh well that’s a lot of favorites
Last week I attended a wedding banquet with my family and I was using Urban Decay Vice Palette for my whole eye look.
On my eye:
Urban Decay Vice Palette – Provocateur (all over my eyelids), Rapture, Vice (for my crease color) and Black Market (outer corner nearby the lash line)
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Ebene for my lash line and Dolly Wink Liquid eyeliner.
Shu Uemura Brow Pencil
Random falsies that I bought in Taiwan.
On my cheeks:
MAC Bronzing powder in Bronze
Overall I think this is a very good palette. The color range is wide, it gives me choice to wear many colors and there will be endless choice of mixing the colors. The texture and the pigmentation is also great. Although fallouts can be annoying, I think this is still forgiven because the colors are amazing and it’s very well pigmented. Retailing at $88 and contains 20 colors, I think this eye palette is worth a look.
