Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette

I know I’m late with this post.  When Urban Decay’s Vice 2 palette was being promoted, I didn’t fall for the hype and rush to buy.  I wasn’t impressed with the first Vice palette so I wasn’t too excited with the second.  I’m glad I caved because this is a really nice palette.  Especially for those who like dark, sultry shades.   I’m pleasantly surprised with the consistent pigmentation and the fact that there isn’t a dud in the palette.  Vice 1 had a handful of shades that were dead-on dupes for existing Urban Decay shades, just renamed.  This palette has some shades that remind me of existing colors, but I’m not turned off by it.

The palette has a nice mix shimmer and satin shades with a couple of matte shades as well.  As with Vice 1, you get the same dual-ended synthetic brush.  It comes in the same, bulky plastic case with a push button opening, with a large mirror inside.  You get 20 x.03 oz for $59.  The palette is available online at Urban Decay.com, Sephora.com and Ulta.com.  I’ve yet to see it in Sephora stores, but it should be arriving soon.

  1. Radar – metallic brown shimmer with iridescent micro glitter
  2. Damaged – bright metallic emerald
  3. Voodoo – metallic purple shimmer with iridescent purple micro glitter
  4. Betrayal – bright purple satin with blue shift (very similar to Omen)
  5. Derailed – medium metallic taupey-brown
  6. Dope – warm champagne
  7. Toxic – metallic copper-pink shimmer with tonal micro-glitter
  8. Habit – light nude matte (Walk of Shame is a bit lighter)
  9. Ambush – metallic brown
  10. Rewind – medium brown matte (Faint is a little darker)

The standout shades for me is Smokeout, Prank, Madness, Stash, Poison, Radar and Damaged.  I wish cool-toned silvers worked well with my warm skin tone because the pigmentation on Shellshock is otherworldly.
