UD X Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette ❥ Hot Deal!

UD X Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette 2016

I know I have a few flaws (just ask BeardMan), but there are some weaknesses that are well-known by my avid readers: Hot Deals and Palettes!! So, what do you think happened when Sephora posted an UD palette for 35$CND? At 70$CND, it was a total nonsense to get it because I probably own most of these colors or their close relatives, but with such an irresistible deal, it was:”Come to mama you lucky palette, come play with your friends!!! At this price, it’s almost what we now pay for a totally average drugstore’s palette. To tell you the truth, I was very intrigued with this collaboration between Urban Decay and miss Stefani, and  seriously, what’s not to love about this Limited Edition palette containing all the colors I love…

After owning this everyday, humble eyeshadow palette for about a week and totally enjoying it, here is why you should run to get this one….

UD X Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette 2016

♥ 15 UD shadows for 25$US (35$CND) is a heist. On average now, each palette are 60$ or more! It’s start to be ridiculously pricey.

♥ Daytime to nighttime appropriate.

♥ Boring neutrals? No f***g way! I understand it’s not as sexy as those normal, regular UD palettes with all those crazy colors but should I remind you that these palettes (I’m talking to you Vice 4) are mostly gathering dust on my innumerable shelves.

♥ Not overly pigmented, these shadows make me achieve the most beautiful natural eye looks!

♥ The packaging is absolutely stunning. So chic, it’s a piece of artwork…

♥ The 3 most stunning colors that are Harajuku, Danger and 1987 are surprisingly easy to wear on my bottom lash line.

♥ Great for travelling: with this palette, you have every shade you might want for all possible situations, from the “no makeup makeup” to a sexy, smokey eye look!

♥ No creasing, very little fallouts and super blendable.

Made in the USA and cruelty-free.

A few added notes …

♥  Only 1 dud to report: Pop is crap! The formula is gritty and I need to wet it with MAC “Fix +” and use my Too Faced Glitter Glue if I don’t want it all over my cheeks!!! It’s sad because the shade is nice.

♥ These shadows perform way better with an eye primer.

Bottom Line…

I don’t really care for Gwen Stefani and normally, I always tend to shy away from these makeup collabs which are most of the time on the cheaper side (formula-wise and made in China wise) but this one is very solid! I don’t see how anyone could regret this beauty if you generally gravitate towards these types of colors.

Thanks for stopping by my beautiful friends xxx

  1. I used to like Gwen, but not so much now that I’ve been able to see more of her personality on The Voice. I love the packaging on this palette but I could have lived without it. I’m not a fan of the colorful shades and the rest are just so darn light. However, like you say it’s great for natural looks! And in a world of collaborations that are made cheap as hell, it’s nice to see a brand keep the quality the same!!!

  2. I have always loved the look of this ever since it was released but I probably would skip this palette as there are a lot of palette out there with similar colours but as you say it would make a good travel and day to night palette or it would be a good all rounder for a beginner. You picked up a total bargain! x

  3. Wow, you got such a great deal! I skipped on this one too because I just didn’t think I needed another neutral palette, but it looks to be more than that. Danger and 1987 look gorgeous!

  4. You’ve got such an eye for DEALS, woman! I always miss out. Although, I do NOT need another palette. This one is nice with the neutrals and some pops of colours – but they’re all quite wearable too. I guess you can’t go wrong at this price!
