Urban Decay have finally released their collaboration palette with Gwen Stefani. I couldn’t resist, I needed it in my life. The Urban Decay marketing team are geniuses 🙂
I picked my Urban Decay Gwen Stefani in Debenhams. It will set you back €46. They have it on the website with free shipping here, if you like what you see 🙂
The palette contains a mixture of neutral matte, satin and shimmery shades for the most part, with a couple of more intense colours for good measure. I think it’s a good mixture. As a Urban Decay fan I have alot of their palettes, so I’m used to them having some crazy colour combos within them. I think the Gwen palette gives good practical but still really pretty colour choices. You get 15 shades in total which is pretty decent for the price. They are soft and pigmented as you would expect from the brand. I love all the names she gave them too. If you’re a Gwen fan since her old school No Doubt days (like myself) you will get all the references she makes with them.
Now onto the good part, the eye shadows in action 🙂
The top row:
We have ‘Blonde’, the lightest shade in the palette.
‘Bathwater’ (one of my favourite No Doubt songs :).
Then the second line of shadows:
And finally the third line of shadow and where most of the crazier colours lie:
And ‘Blackout’, a matte black is always a welcome addition to a palette for me.
I struggled to part with the money for the Gwen palette so close to Christmas for myself I have to admit. The guilt has subsided now however and I’m so glad I did. She’s just so darn pretty. I love everything the colour choices, the packaging everything! And there’s also an added bonus with it. You get samples of the lipsticks Gwen will be releasing with Urban Decay too. Score!
The packaging of the lippies looks amazing in the picture may I add 🙂
So we have ‘Rocksteady’.
A pinky red lipstick with a cream formula.
It wouldn’t be Gwen without a matte red. So this is a mega-matte (according to Urban Decay) and it’s called ‘714’.
‘Ex-Girlfriend’ is a sheer neutral brown shade.
Then, finally we have ‘Firebird’ an awesome bright purple hot pink shade with a cream finish.
I think it’s safe to say the Gwen palette for Urban Decay is a hit with me 🙂
Have you picked it up? Or is it on your Christmas wish list?
