There are 20 shades inside to celebrate Urban Decay’s 20th birthday, and these range from vintage shades from the past to brand new shades, shades from fairly recent palettes and the bestselling singles – all in Urban Decay’s new revamped eyeshadow formula. The UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded palette* (£45 exclusively from Debenhams) has everything from stunning metallics, matte nudes and shimmery pastels to an irridescent white. There is also a decent quality double-ended brush too, and a huge mirror, for makeup on-the-go. I would really recommend this palette if you are an Urban Decay fan or just an eyeshadow lover in general.
All of the shades in this palette are velvety soft and incredibly pigmented. You do get some fall out from the matte shades, which can be slightly chalky, but this is to be expected. As with all of Urban Decay’s shadows, there have a great wear time and blend beautifully too. I have swatches (horizontal rows, left to right) of every shade, which are below. My favourites are definitely Roadstripe – an eye-catching duo-chrome irridescent white with a blue shift, which makes an amazing inner corner highlight – and Smog – a dark metallic bronze that is the most pigmented shadow in the palette.
Suspend (matte brown), Oil Slick (matte black with silver glitter), Roadstripe (irridescent white with blue-violet shift), Gash (metallic brick red) and Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne shimmer with silver glitter).
501 (deep blue metallic with copper glitter), Shallow (satin taupe-silver), Laced (matte pink-taupe), Hot Pants (pearly Barbie-esque pink) and Mildew (metallic light green).
Smog (dark mettalic copper bronze), Misdemeanor (deep olive green with green glitter), Freakshow (bright purple satin), Asphyxia (Hyacinth shimmer with blue shift) and Acid Rain (yellow-green shimmer with green shift).
Moonflower (metallic rose gold with gold shimmer), UV-B (bright blue with violet shimmer), Goldmine (a metallic yellow gold), Twice Baked (chocolate brown satin with gold glitter) and Anonymous (matte pale cream).
