Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette
When I heard that Gwen Stefani collaborated with Urban Decay, I could’t contain myself. I have been a huge Gwen Stefani fan for a really long time. I feel like she is one of the best women preformers out there. She has always been such a unique and creative artist. Such a great and aspiring role model as well. I am a huge supporter. When she launched her LAMB line, I purchased a purse from her line and the first perfume she created. That is why I was so exited and made sure I was one of the first to be notified when this palette launched.
The packaging is so her style. Black and white is typical of her line, which was not a surprise to me, with an added touch of gold made it so chic. The shadows themselves are great quality as to be expected from Urban Decay. They are smooth and pigmented and they range from an array of neutrals to bold shades and shimmers to mattes. It is a great palette as an everyday to bold and night time looks. The Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani palette retails for $58 and the palette packaging design was all developed by Gwen herself.
The shadows may be applied wet or dry. Not only was Gwen creative in the overall look and the shades she picked, but I love that her creativity goes all the way down to the name of the eyeshadows. The list of the names is as follows (from left to right on swatch pic above): Blonde, Bathwater, Skimp, Steady, Punk, Baby, Anaheim, Stark, Zone, Serious, Pop, Harajuku, Danger, 1987, Blackout. If you are a true fan, then you will understand the names she chose (wink, wink!).
Overall, I am happy to have gotten my hands on this palette and I definitely recommend this palette to all. Even if you are a beginner to makeup, it’s a great palette to start off with. You will not regret it and you will thank me later :D.
