Hey Guys! Today I am reviewing the most wanted eyeshadow palette of the year and that is the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. I remember when the news hit everyone was so excited to get their hands on it. At first I was on the fence as to whether I should purchase it because of many mixed reviews. Most people said it wasn't exciting and expected the palette to be more colorful instead of mostly neutral. Gwen Stefani's style as far as her makeup goes is very simple so it makes sense that she chose the colors she wears on a daily basis. After much consideration, I decided to purchase the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. One because it is Gwen Stefani and two because the packaging is lovely and the colors as well. Hope you enjoy my review!
The Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette retails at $58.00 and contains 15 eyeshadows (12 are new) containing mostly neutral shades with a few pops of color.
I really love the packaging. I love the gold and white cut out detail in the middle overlaying the black giving it a 3D effect. It has a little weight to it and it's smaller than the vice palettes, but has similar packaging and a magnetic closure.
The Palette also comes with Gwen Stefani Lipstick samples. The lipsticks will release in Spring 2016.
Look at how beautiful these colors are. The color Danger is gorgeous!
My Fav Shades:
Over All, I am happy that I purchased the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. I was afraid I might return it because of the many neutral shades that are dupable, but the pigmentation of most of the eyeshadows especially the matte shades won me over. The matte shades are very smooth and buttery and blend very well as well as the shimmer shades with the exception of the color Pop. That color is terrible. There is no base color. It is like a sheer glittery shade that has a lot of fall out. The pigmentation is very poor. I would replace this shade with a nice purple shade since there are already a few shades in the same color family. A purple shade would have been awesome in this palette. Other wise great pigmentation and they blend very well. The eyeshadows lasted for 7 hours and still were going strong and they didn't crease. I was also afraid some of the shades would not show up on my skin, but surprisingly they do and I am quite pleased. If you do not own any Urban Decay Naked palettes then the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette would be great to own.
