Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette Photos, Swatches +Review

Hello my dear readers! I am sure you have seen many blog posts and reviews on the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. It is one of the hottest holiday palettes out right now. I love the fact that the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette is more on the colorful side. It is a nice break from the naked palettes and I knew Urban Decay had the potential to come out with yet another amazing colorful palette. Scroll down for  photos, swatches and my thoughts on the Vice 3 Palette.

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette retails at $60(0.6 oz).  It comes with all new 20 velvety colorful shadows as well as some neutral ones.  Most shades are metallic with a few matte and satin shades. The eyeshadows are arranged in rows starting from top to bottom. You can coordinate a look that way or mix it up. The Urban Decay Vice 3 also comes with a a dual ended brush and nice colorful case to store it in.

Slim Case
Variety of colors



I like how it shows the colors in the back, so you know what your are buying and if you like these sort of colors or not.

I really love the packaging. I think they did a great job. I love the silver with the color steaks in the middle and the bright green letters. 

This palette has a nice size mirror and does not flop down.

A close up of all the pretty colors.

The color are arranged in rows starting from the top down. You have your neutrals in the first, your jewels tones in the next three rows and your smokey shades in the last. You can also use the colors in quads aswell. I love how they paired them this way so you can have an easy time creating a look, or you can be adventurous and mix the colors to create a unique makeup look.

The palette also comes with a double ended brush. 

I like that it comes with the case for storing the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette or it can be used as a cosmetic pouch.

Swatch Time!
Truth -is a pale matte eyeshadow. I found this shade to be a bit dry and chalky. 
Undone- Peachy matte shade. This shade has a creamy texture considering it is a matte shade.
DownFall-is a light brown. I am so happy they included this wonderful transition shade to work with all the colorful eyeshadows in the palette.
DTF- is a mauvy brown. Another great transition color.

Dragon- is a beautiful leafy green color. 
Freeze-is a mid tone blue color
Heroine -is a beautiful navy blue color.
Broke Down -is a bronze gold color .

Vanity -is a grape color.
Lucky- a gorgeous orangey gold color.
Reign- is a copper brown color.
Boddy Dazzle is a white silver color.

ahh yes my favorite row! :)
Alien- a rosy pink color.
Alchemy -is a magenta pink.
Bondage- is a deep burgundy shade.
Sonic is a pink color with orange undertones. One of my favorite colors in this palette!

Last sin-champagne color 
Angel- is a taupe metallic color.
Defy- is a slate grey color.
Revolver- is a gunmetal grey color.


OverAll, I really like the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. It has 20 colors mostly metallic with a few matte and satin finishes making this palette very versatile. I love how they included matte shades to work as transition colors for the colorful shades. If you do not want such a colorful look you can always pair a neutral shade with some of the colorful shades to tone down a look. I feel that with every palette that urban decay comes out with they get a bit more expensive. This palette costs $60 dollars.  It isn't bad considering it has 20 all new shadows, but I have seen other eye shadows palettes on the market that have the same amount of shadows and also comes with blushes and lip glosses for a cheaper price. 

The eyeshadows have great pigmentation, with the exception of the matte shade Truth. The other matte neutral shades in the palette are velvety soft and the colorful shadows have great pigmentation . The eyeshadows lasted about 7 hours on me without the color fading or creasing.

As for the packing, I love it! It is very sleek and the outside packaging is so pretty. I think it is pretty artsy. The palette comes with a huge mirror and it stays up and does not flop down as with previous Urban Decay palettes. The Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette also comes with a decent double ended brush and an Urban Decay zipper pouch, so u can store the palette in or use it for a cosmetic pouch.

If your a color junkie then this palette is perfect for you. The colors are so versatile that you can use this palette for spring, summer, winter and fall. Hurry and grab this great palette before it sells out. The Urban Decay Vice 3 is a limited edition palette.

You can find the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette at Ulta, and Sephora.
