Urban Decay Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette
Radar is described as a “metallic brown shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a golden bronze shimmer/sheen and warm, orange undertones. It has a frosted, metallic finish, and it had a really crazy texture. The texture felt creamy and more like a cream eyeshadow than a powder one. It really held together very well–like a cream–and I didn’t have any fall out with this shade, despite it being more sparkly. It had rich color payoff, too. Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze is less frosted. Marc Jacobs The Starlet #3 is darker. MAC Brownluxe #4 is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust is less frosted. Bobbi Brown Bronze is more golden. Urban Decay Nevermind is less warm-toned. bareMinerals Cognac is very similar. See comparison swatches.
Damaged is described as a “bright metallic emerald shimmer.” It’s a deep forest green with cool undertones over a dirty khaki/olive base. It had a soft, frosted finish and a slightly metallic sheen. The color payoff was nice, and it applied very smoothly. Sephora Walk on the Wild Side is less frosted, lighter. MAC Dark Indulgence is darker. OCC Poison is darker, blacker. Make Up For Ever #80 is less frosted. Inglot #414 is more metallic. See comparison swatches.
Voodoo is described as a “metallic purple shimmer with iridescent purple micro-glitter.” It’s a medium-dark cool-toned purple with a frosted finish. It had decent color payoff, but the texture was slightly dry and a smidgen powdery, so it didn’t apply as intensely as other shades did. Too Faced Badass is darker, cooler-toned. theBalm Lavish Latoya is warmer. Urban Decay Half Truth is darker. Urban Decay ACDC is warmer. Milani Purr-fect Purple is similar. MAC Grand Galaxy is also similar. See comparison swatches.
Betrayal is described as a “bright purple satin with blue shift.” It’s a light-medium lavender with pink undertones and a bluish-violet sheen. It had more of a pearly, metallic finish. The color payoff was decent to good, but there was some sheerness, and the texture wasn’t as buttery or as smooth as other shades. L’Oreal With a Twist is darker. Make Up For Ever #54 is similar but a cream product. Urban Decay Grifter is slightly pinker and has glitter. NARS Marie-Galante #1 is similar. See comparison swatches.
Derailed is described as a “medium metallic taupey-brown shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned taupe–a mix of brown and gray–with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had incredibly rich color payoff with a buttery, smooth, silky texture that made it a dream to apply. Marc Jacobs The Starlet #7 is similar, less metallic. theBalm Selfish is less metallic. Urban Decay Pistol is more satiny, darker. Urban Decay Mushroom is cooler-toned, grayer. See comparison swatches.
Dope is described as a “warm champagne satin.” It’s a pinky-peach with a satiny sheen and warm undertones. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture was soft and buttery. I used this shade mixed with Habit for highlighting for each combination of eyeshadows I was testing for this palette. MAC Easy Gesture is lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights #2 is darker, less shimmery. MAC Orb is less shimmery. MAC A Natural FLirt is lighter. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle is less pink. See comparison swatches.
Toxic is described as a “metallic copper-pink shimmer with tonal micro-glitter.” It’s a muted, coppery brown with subtle pink tones and copper micro-glitter. The texture was somewhat dry, though the color payoff was decent. I did have some fall out occur when wearing this shade. LORAC Garnet is darker, less shimmery. Disney Trust Me is more matte. NARS California is darker, less shimmery. MAC Magnetic Attraction is warmer. MAC Mythical is less sparkly. See comparison swatches.
Habit is described as a “light nude matte.” It’s a light beige with subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. It is very similar to my skin tone, so it doesn’t show up that well against my arm, unfortunately! The texture is soft, buttery, and very creamy (though it’s a powder). It blends well against the skin and didn’t look chalky. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hard Being the It Girl #3 is yellower. Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights #1 is lighter. Urban Decay Broken is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Walk of Shame is lighter. NARS Biarritz is similar. MAC Bisque is also similar. Inglot #390 is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Make Up For Ever #12 is more copper-colored and is a cream product. See comparison swatches.
