URBAN DECAY X GWEN STEFANI MAKEUP TUTORIAL: 2 EYE & LIP LOOKS

I just need to say Urban Decay palette and I know your ears pricked up! UD have a great track record of making the most covetable, cult status eye shadow palettes. I’ve played around and created a mini tutorial on how I use the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani palette for an everyday Nude eye and Lip look and then amped it up for a full blown midnight blue shimmery smokey eye.

The Palette

First impressions are great, its in a sturdy box with a very generous full face mirror so great for travelling. There are 15 shades inside the palette. The bottom row confused me as there a few random brights chucked in to what is predominately a nudes palette.

I do find that when I am using the really pigmented darker shades like Danger there is a bit of fall out which is why I would advise wearing those little eye makeup stick on pads or doing your base and rest of face last.

Overall it’s a great piece of kit with a load of wearable shades and a few darker ones to smoke out a look. The pigment is very nice. I do wish that the shimmer pearly hues were a bit more molten and metallic-y like someone the shades in the Naked palettes (read my Naked Dupe post here). Also I wish the highlighter shades were a little more luminous for highlighting the brow bone and inner eye. Also that pink shade you’re all wondering about, it doesn’t come out as nearly and shocking as it looks.
