To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Urban Decay launched a new limited edition eyeshadow palette named XX Vice Ltd Reloaded*. The aim is for this palette to really represent those 20 years of Urban Decay‘s history. That’s why they’ve gathered some vintage shades with totally new shades, exclusives from past palletes and bestsellers from their collection of single eyeshadows. It’s also the first time for some of the shades to be available with the new UD formula that is so soft and creamy and just beautiful.
The case is matte black, it’s sleek and sturdy, it has textured purple logo that looks like a jewel and it’s really pretty. The palette also includes a big mirror and a double-ended brush which makes it very good for travelling, as it has a great push-button release mechanism to open and the closure is quite good. I’d say it would have been nice if there was a mini primer added, for example.
For the purposes of this post, I tried wearing the eyeshadows without an eye primer, with an eye primer and with my usual method of applying concealer all over the lid and setting it with powder. The differences were not that big with lasting power between 7 and 9 hours on me. All shades blend beautifully, they are highly pigmented and just stunning and I’m not even a big eyeshadow fan.
I was really surprised by how versatile and wearable this palette is. It can be used by everyone, there are bright shades, neutral shades, shimmer shades, matte ones, just everything that you might want from an eyeshadow palette!
