Urban Decay Vice 4 - Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Vice 4

URBAN DECAY CLAIMS

We loaded Vice4 with 20 addictively gorgeous, never-before-seen shades of our iconic Eyeshadow. Vice4 features a stunning array of colors and a wide range of finishes, from buttery-smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to shades laced with micro-glitter. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients for rich, velvety, blendable color that lasts (and sparkle that doesn’t fall). This limited-edition palette even includes a huge mirror, a double-ended brush and a coordinating bag. And unlike most sequels, Vice4 will keep you hooked and coming back for more.

MY OPINION

Lo and behold, the stunning Vice 4. Ever since I have had it, I have been mesmerized with its multi-dimensional metallic packaging. It is so much more gorgeous in real life. And this particular Vice edition also comes with a bag of its own, a great way to keep the palette protected. And included is a dual shadow/crease brush and a gigantic mirror.

Vice 4 is a perfect blend of 20 glittery and matte jewel tones. Can you believe this is my first ever Urban Decay palette? Because before this I have never been drawn to any, the Nakeds were just too everyday for me and the colourful did not have the right blend of shades. The moment I set eyes on Vice 4, I knew I was going to get the most out of each shade.

Most of the mattes are very impressive. I love how buttery and smooth they are. My favourites are definitely Bitter and Delete. As for the metallic & glittery eyeshadows the quality is a mix. Some like Grasshopper and Robbery are beautiful. But others like Grip and Crowbar have quite a fall out during application and do not sit so well.

I did find some of the shades lacking in pigmentation or being slightly powdery, so the formula is definitely not spot on for each eyeshadow. They work best over a sticky primer, not only does it make the colours pop but makes the glittery ones adhere better as well. I have worn them without a primer as well and can happily say that at least they do last well on the lids.

MY RATING

  
Each eyeshadow might not have the best of formula but it's nothing an eye primer cannot fix, because after all you are getting some phenomenal colours and an even more phenomenal packaging.
