Urban Decay Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette-Review, Photos and Swatches

As salaamu alaykum and hello lovelies. I am excited to be reviewing the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette for guys today. I just love Urban Decay. They seem to never disappoint when it comes to the pigmentation of their eyeshadows. Let's dive right into the review.

Urban Decay 2 Palette is a limited edition eyeshadow palette and  retails for $59.00(0.03 oz each) and it comes with 20 eyeshadows. The eyeshadows comes in metallic,shimmer,glitter,matte and jewel toned finishes. The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Anti Aging was a free gift that came with the order. 


Excellent Pigmentation.
Blends easily
Has a mirror 
Comes with a double ended brush.

Not enough matte shades


 I like the jeweled emblem. Very cute.

I love the mirror and how it actually stays up.

The color selections are beautiful!! :)


The pigmentation without a primer has excellent color payoff. I am very pleased. Urban Decay does not disappoint when it comes to the pigmentation of their eyeshadows.

These are eyeshadows tha tI applied over Urban Decay's Primer Potion. The pigmentation is insane. I looooove it!

Smokeout is a deep dirty brown with black undertones.

Lovesick is is black with silver flecks in it.

Shellshock is an aluminum silver color. I am not a big fan of silver eyeshadow, but the pigmentation is paint like. Love it!

Coax is a rosy pink color with gold glitter in it .

X-rated is a light pink color.

Rank is a deep blue with black undertones.

Madness is a ocean blue color.

Strike is a yellow gold color.

Stahs is a dark gold with brown undertones.

Poison is a deep black green color with tiny specks of glitter.

Radar is a bronze coppery color .

Damaged is a emerald green color.

VooDoo is a  mid tone purple color with pink flecks of glitter.

Betrayal is a bright periwinkle color.

Derailed is a taupey bronze color.

Dope is a  cream champagne color.

Toxic is a peachy champagne color.

Habit cream matte color.

Ambush is a brown rusty color.

Rewind is a brown taupey matte color.

Over all, I think the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette is worth every penny even if its expensive. You get quality eyeshadows. The eyeshadows are buttery soft blend beautifully and the pigmentation is excellent. I am quite pleased with my purchase. This palette is a little on the dark side when it comes to the color selection, but it is still gorgeous. It has bright colors,browns and dark color which makes this palette versatile. However, I would love if Urban Decay put more matte shades into their palettes. I love the shimmery eyeshadows, but I think an eye look that is all shimmer is a bit much and doesn't show any contrast from one another. I like contrast :) If this Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette had more matte shades ,this would be a perfect palette. I am still in love with this palette nonetheless. I do not regret my purchase and I highly recommend everyone to grab this limited edition palette before it is sold out. 

Stay tuned for some makeup looks using this palette. :) 

You can find this palette at Sephora,Ulta,and the Urban decay website.If the palette becomes unavailable, you can be sure to find it at ebay.

Hope you enjoyed my review! Have a great everyone and see you in my next blog post. :)
