URBAN DECAY - GWEN STEFANI EYE PALETTE REVIEW

Monday, 7 December 2015




Seriously, have you ever seen such perfection? This palette is what I'd call heavenly. I literally love everything about it, the shades, the packaging, the names... 

Let's start with the packaging. I am a very big fan of gold monochrome and so when I saw this palette for the first time online I knew I would like it regardless of what was inside. It's literally so beautiful I could die. This palette is also quite heavy and you can recognize the quality of it just by looking at it. Another thing I love about it is that right in the bottom right corner on the mirror there's a quote: 'Magic's in the Make Up', which I completely agree with.

There is a variety of cool, warm, shimmery, matte and metallic shades and most of them are super pigmented. The only one I didn't find it has much pigment is Harajuku shade and Danger works better with a wet brush. As for the rest, they're all amazing! One thing I'd recommend is, if you're going to use this palette make sure you do your eyes before you put any foundation on as there will be traces of eye shadow all over your cheeks! 

I have always loved Gwen Stefani's style. I love the whole 90's punk/grunge style and this palette represents that era perfectly. Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani have also come out with a range of lipsticks that will come out early next year and after this palette, I really cannot wait to see the lipsticks! 

Overall, this palette is perfect for every day due to the good amount of neutrals that it offers but it's also great for a more intense look with the blue (Danger) and the gold (1987). I also must say, the black shade (blackout) is super black, which is awesome as you don't have to pack up much product like you normally have to do if you want a very black lid!

A couple of days ago I felt like the luckiest girl on earth when I got invited to a blogger event at the Urban Decay counter at John Lewis in Cardiff. Both Kate and Zandra were amazing, super friendly and helpful. I had my make up done by Zandra and I can't thank her enough for making my eyes look so stunning! In this occasion Zandra used mainly 'Danger', 'Serious' and 'Plum' to make my eyes look super intense. Of course she also used some of the transition shades.

 

I honestly have so much love for this palette and I can't wait to play around with it every day for the next few months! I'm thinking I might do a post with a few different looks that you can create with this palette, what do you think?
