Girls, After reviewing numbers of MAC lipsticks on my dear friend Renji’s blog here I am up today with my very first review in this blog about an eye shadow palette. Yes, and this time it is the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette that everybody raved about.
You can never have too much of a good thing. Satisfy your eyeshadow vice with 20 velvety, NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN shades-from an amazing soft black and a stunning burgundy to a rich, smoky red-black. Even MORE covetable than Urban Decay’s previous Vice palettes, this mesmerising, jewel-inlaid case holds 20 ALL-NEW shades, a huge mirror, and a double-ended shadow and crease brush. The perfect finishing touch? A gorgeous matching bag. With so many different finishes-matte, satin, sparkle and even metallic (to echo the iced-out metallic look of the palette itself), this palette is made for experimentation.
The shades are arranged in columns: neutrals on the left, jewel tones in the middle and smoky shades on the right. Pair up the vertically colour-coordinated quads or go wild and mix them up. Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System gives each shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability. With Vice3, UD pulled out ALL the stops.

My rating: – 4.5/5
Overall, None of the shades are glittery. That you have so many options to mix color combos! This gorgeousness will cost $60, which might sound like a lot, but you are getting 20 shades, that’s $3 per shade, which is such a great deal for an awesome brand like Urban Decay! If you are looking for a versatile travel friendly awesome palette then you should try this one, I bet you won’t regret buying it.
