Urban Decay's Vice 3: Swatches and Review

Urban Decay's holiday lineup is here! They have 2 new 24/7 liner sets, a lipstick stash, an All Nighter Setting Spray Duo, Naked Illuminated and last but not least, Vice 3. Vice was definitely the thing I was most excited about. Here are my thoughts!

First things first I'm the realest the packaging. Vice 3 is quite similar to Vice 1 and 2 as it is plastic and it has a nice BIG mirror on the inside.  It also opens to the perfect angle to apply your make-up which is really nice. The outside is silver on the front with raised lettering in lime green that says Vice. The back is a bright lime green also.

One cool thing they did this time around was include a bag for the palette to live in. It matches the exterior of the palette and has Urban Decay's UD on the bottom right corner. This bag is pretty darn big! It would be a wonderful travel bag!

In addition to the bag you get a double ended brush. This one is really similar to the one that came with Vice 2, when I put them side by side there were hardly any differences. The brush is also lime green and the writing matches the writing on the palette.

Now for the important part, the shadows! Brownie points to Urban Decay for creating 20, yes TWENTY, all new shades! I love how they really thought about the little things. In the first row, going from the top to the bottom, we have the neutrals. The second through fourth rows are all jewel tones and the third row is the smokey colors.

Overall this is a gorgeous palette! From the packaging to the colors. The only thing I wish they would have done differently is add that nifty little button that they added to the Vice 2 palette, but I won't be picky. The shadows are creamy and buttery and SUPER pigmented. I didn't use any primer under the swatches and they still worked perfectly. Out of the looks I've created so far, I have noticed that the colors blend together beautifully! The first row is a bit powdery, but nothing too bad.

If you are looking for a palette that has practically everything you need, then look no more! Vice has you covered. This would also be the perfect Christmas present for the make-up lover in your life.
