This would have been one of the items at the top of my Christmas list, however I could not wait to get my hands on the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette. I am a big Gwen Stefani fan and have absolutely fell in love with Urban Decay this year and so when I found out that the two were collaborating, I got very excited!

Finally last week, I went in store and purchased the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette and it was everything I expected and more.

It comes is the most gorgeous Gwen Stefani-esque monochrome and gold casing. It has a large mirror in the inside of the lid and boasts an array of 15 fabulous eyeshadow shades. There are a stunning selection of neutral tones inside the palette, including matte browns and shimmery shades. It also has a few stand out shades, perfect for adding a pop of colour when it takes your fancy, not forgetting ‘Blackout’, the jet black shade, ideal for creating smoky eye looks.

It didn’t take long before I got to work experimenting with my new palette and trying out different looks.

Here I used the shade Stark as a base, then worked in the shade Zone as a transition shade, with the deep brown shade, Punk to darken up the lid. I finished off with Harajuku in the middle of my eyelids and went in with the striking shade 1987 in the inner corners of my eyes.

I am in love with this palette if you can’t already tell. I can see I’ll be getting a lot of use out of these beautiful eye shadow shades and I am so happy with my latest makeup purchase.

    Love the look you created with this, 1987 gives such a nice pop to the inner corner of your eyes. I love the packaging of this palette as well but I have to admit, I figured a colab with Gwen Stefani would mean a lot more bold and out there shades.

      Thank you… Yeah I guess but then when you look at Gwen Stefani’s eye makeup, the majority of the time she does actually keep it pretty simple and I do feel that it makes this a really wearable palette which I love.

      Thank you Pam. I say you give into the temptation haha, or maybe wait and see what you get for Christmas first but it’s definitely a great purchase. I feel like it’s the only eyeshadow palette I actually need now. If only I wasn’t addicted to makeup though…
