Urban Decay Vice3 Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Vice3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice3 Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.60 oz.) contains twenty new, limited edition, and exclusive shades. Overall, the palette had good color payoff with the majority of the shades, and most wore for around seven to eight hours before fading/creasing on me. I had some issues with the texture of shades within this palette, but it definitely wasn’t on the same level as Shadow Box. I felt like the eyeshadows–across the board–were less plush, not as buttery or as dense as many other Urban Decay eyeshadows, though. None of the textures were stiff (where you’d have trouble getting color payoff), but they were thinner, sometimes a little drier, and the eyeshadows felt more pressed (firmer) into the pan. The matte finishes were soft and finely-milled, but a few of them were also quite powdery so you’ll want to be careful applying (or apply before your base).

I also wish that Urban Decay would make their mattes… matte in their palettes, because even with these, most of the mattes also have shimmer in them (but it doesn’t translate on the lid, so why not just make them pure matte?). This is also a more warm-toned palette with a lot of mid-tone and dark shades, and as I worked through the palette, I felt like I needed a couple of lighter/light-medium shades so that not every eye was dark and smoky. There are six shades with “micro-glitter,” which tended to have some fall out, though it varied from shade to shade.

The palette is slightly slimmer than Vice and Vice 2, and it includes a thin, zippered bag that you can store the palette in (or, as they also suggest, whatever you’d like). The bag could be about half an inch wider, because the fit could be looser around the palette (just to make easier to take in and out of the bag). It is metallic, so it holds fingerprints very easily. The included double-ended brush seems to be of the same quality as other Urban Decay brushes, which is all right, but I’m not in love with the shape or density of the brush (seems to increase fall out during application).

Urban Decay’s eyeshadow retails for $18.00 for 0.05 oz. normally, so the palette contains a total of $216 worth of eyeshadow, plus the dual-ended brush (maybe $16 or so in value) for a total value of ~$232. It’s less than the cost of four, full-sized single eyeshadows (though none of these are available individually, just to be clear).

Truth is described as a “pale pink-nude matte.” It’s a light, neutral-to-warm-toned pink with a matte finish. The more I used this, the more powdery and loose the eyeshadow became over time. It is really pigmented, but so much of the powder just falls everywhere when using it. This was one of the shades I used frequently as a brow bone highlighter (usually mixed with something else, as my skin tone doesn’t play well with the white base in this shade), and it was a very finicky eyeshadow: touch the brush very, very lightly to the pan, tap off excess, then apply, and then you may still need dust away excess. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dragon is described as a “bright metallic green shimmer.” It’s a brightened, medium grassy green with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was smooth, though thinner. It’s a shade that doesn’t work as well over bare skin and really benefits from a primer, as the thinner texture made it go on unevenly over bare skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Vanity is described as a “smoky metallic eggplant with multidimensional micro-glitter.” It’s a medium-dark, plummy purple with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff, and the texture was soft and only a little powdery. I didn’t notice the micro-glitter in this much when I applied, though it is visible in the pan. There was a tiny amount of fall out from what I could determine, while the color itself lasted for eight hours before creasing slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Alien is described as a “pink-peach with golden shift.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a soft, golden shimmer. It had good pigmentation, but the more powdery texture made it harder to apply. It really wasn’t worth using over bare skin–it needs a primer or else it looks uneven and faded no matter how much you pack on. I think at some point, while trying to use it over bare skin, I had more eyeshadow underneath my eye than on the eyelid. It wasn’t great over primer, but it was better. Over bare skin, it lasted six and a half hours before creasing. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Last Sin is described as a “champagne shimmer with silver micro-glitter.” It’s a light, warm-toned beige with a metallic sheen. The glitter is most noticeable in the pan, but the majority had dropped while I was applying it or got trapped between my brush’s bristles. It had a drier, crumbly texture that made it more prone to fall out during application and quicker to fade (seven hours) on the lid. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Undone is described as a “pink-beige matte-satin with subtle floating tonal pearl.” It’s a light-medium, peach-beige with warm undertones and a very fine shimmer over a matte finish. It really just looks matte once you apply it to the lid. It had decent color payoff with a very soft, silky texture, but it was somewhat powdery so you’ll want to be sure to tap off excess product before applying to the lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Freeze is described as a “metallic medium blue with multidimensional micro-glitter.” It’s a muted, medium blue with a golden, metallic finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, though the texture was slightly dry/powdery. The color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. There was a bit of fall out as well. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lucky is described as a “metallic bronze.” It’s a brightened, frosted copper with warm, orange undertones. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and buttery–it was one of the few shades that really felt like Urban Decay’s regular formula to me. This shade wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Alchemy is described as a “deep fuchsia satin.” It’s a darker, pink-berry with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was smooth and blendable, though it doesn’t have the richness you might be used to from Urban Decay’s formula (it has a thinner feel–here it is not a good or bad thing, just a preference, as it didn’t interfere with the quality overall). It lasted for eight hours before fading slightly. It was also a more unique shade, which is always a nice touch! See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Angel is described as a “light taupe with silver micro-glitter.” It’s a light-medium, golden taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff, but it had a drier, firmer texture that made it harder to get color out; it builds decently, though. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. I didn’t notice any micro-glitter in this shade. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Downfall is described as a “warm light brown matte.” It’s a medium, warm-toned brown with a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation with a soft, silky texture that was a little powdery to work with, but it blended well on the skin. The color showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Heroine is described as a “deep navy blue with subtle floating tonal pearl.” It’s a blackened navy blue with silver and navy blue micro-shimmer over a matte finish. It’s more pigmented than it appears, but it doesn’t stick well to bare skin and blends away easily, so it’s a shade that performs better over a primer. The texture is a little dry and fairly powdery. You’ll definitely want to hold a tissue underneath the eye or apply this shade prior to base, because it’s hard to contain the excess powder from dropping, even when patting it on. It wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Reign is described as a “rich brown satin.” It’s a medium-dark brown with a frosted, golden sheen and warm, yellow undertones. It had good color payoff with a softer, smoother texture that was easy to work with. This shade didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bondage is described as a “deep, smoky burgundy shimmer.” It’s a rich, dark purple-burgundy with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was smooth, buttery, and blendable. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Defy is described as a “smoky taupe satin.” It’s a dark, cool-toned taupe that leans more gray than brown with a matte finish. In the pan, there are very tiny micro-shimmers, but it appears matte on the skin. This was the worst performer in the entire palette with respect to the pigmentation: it was a drier, powdery shade with semi-sheer color payoff. It was a total pain to work with, as it looked splotchy and uneven applied. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

DTF is described as a “taupe matte with subtle floating pearl.” It’s a medium-dark, neutral-toned taupe with a satin-matte finish. It looked mostly matte applied on the skin, but the shimmer in this shade was more noticeable than in other shades with a similar finish. It had good color payoff, was slightly powdery, and lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Brokedown is described as a “metallic golden brown shimmer with gold micro-glitter.” It’s a golden, olive brown with hints of green and warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft and dense, but it was a smidgen powdery, while it had intense color payoff and didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bobby Dazzle is described as a “metallic white with pale gold micro-glitter.” It’s a warm-toned, white gold with a metallic sheen and fine micro-glitter. The glitter doesn’t seem noticeable applied so much as it seems to give the powder a grittier, drier texture that doesn’t feel as smooth. It had fairly good color payoff at least, and it wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sonic is described as a “metallic red-copper.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture was soft, smooth, and buttery, so it applied beautifully on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before starting to fade on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Revolver is described as a “soft black satin with subtle floating iridescent pearl.” It’s deepened, charcoal gray with cool, bluish undertones and a silver shimmer-sheen finish. It had nice color payoff, and the texture was fairly soft and smooth while applying well to the eye. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bobbi Brown Blush Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Blush Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Blush Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink, flesh tone.” It’s a dusty, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy formula that glided across lips easily without tugging on the lip. It was light-to-medium in weight, and while it was mostly even, it was thick enough that if you pressed your lips together, sometimes you could see slight lines (but they were faint). This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is warmer. NARS Julie (P, $32.00) is lighter. NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is pinker. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Flirt (144) (LE, $30.00) is lighter. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is warmer. NARS Montego Bay (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is pinker, lighter. MAC Coral Bliss (P, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright pastel pink.” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. The formula was lightly creamy and applied without dragging, but it was a creamier, thicker consistency (though not thick or heavy) that it created “lines” that made the color less even. It had mostly opaque color coverage. This shade wore well for four hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over time. Too Faced Melted Peony (P, $21.00) is more matte. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is glossier. YSL Opera Rose (29) (P, $34.00) is brighter, glossier. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. NYX Chic (P, $4.00) is more shimmery. MAC Giddy (P, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rosy coral.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coral with a hint of rosy pink and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, while the formula had a good glide that worked well to deposit even color during application. It had the same problem where if you pressed your lips together, there were very faint lines. In general, they’re not noticeable to the casual observer, only if you look at your lips close-up. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was neither hydrating nor drying when I wore it. NARS Juliette (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Toying Around (LE, $16.00) is brighter, pinker. Bite Beauty Cin Cin (P, $24.00) is darker, more orange. MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is slightly pinker. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Protest (P, $22.00) is darker. Urban Decay Liar (P, $22.00) is slightly more muted. NARS Dolce Vita (P, $25.00) is more matte. Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is a touch warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Giorgio Armani Quarzo (2) Eyes to Kill Liner
Giorgio Armani Quarzo (2) Eyes to Kill Liner

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Liner ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula that features four shades (three of which I have to share with you). The formula is supposed to “offer buildable intensity” with long-wear. They had fairly good color payoff in one pass, and the brush holds enough product to get a clean, crisp, opaque line across the lash line. It’s less “buildable” as it is able to be sheered out if desired. All three lasted around seven and half hours on my lower lash line before fading. This formula doesn’t flake away as some liquid eyeliners do, and they are slightly smudgeable even after they dry down. I love how unique the shades are, and I think they have a lot of depth in-person (less so in photos), but I wish they wore longer.

A quick note… I received these from Giorgio Armani, but the names on the boxes didn’t line up with the names provided in the press release or as listed on Giorgio Armani’s website (they may have changed names, or the boxes have an English translation). Per boxes, they are listed as Quarzo (2), Ametista (3), and Oro Oscuro (6). The names in the post reflect the names/numbering as they are listed on retailers’ websites and in the press release.

Giorgio Armani Quarzo (2) Eyes to Kill Liner ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a metallic, mauve-taupe that sometimes is so reflective that it looks like a warm bronze and other times like a mushroom-y gray. It was a total pain-in-the-behind to photograph due to its seriously reflective finish. Guerlain Amber Silver (05) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, pencil. MAC Catch My Eye (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, grayer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Giorgio Armani Ametista (3) Eyes to Kill Liner ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, bluish-purple wit gray and multi-colored shimmer (primarily teal). It also has a more metallic sheen that reflects a good bit of light back, which gives it a lighter appearance applied. I looked, but nothing that I’ve reviewed before seems to come close to the color of this eyeliner.

Giorgio Armani Oro Oscuro (6) Eyes to Kill Liner ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brightened, olive green with warm, golden undertones and a metallic sheen. Sephora Collection Snakeskin Dress (17) (P, $9.00) is darker, less shimmery, pencil. Urban Decay Stash (P, $19.00) is much darker, pencil. MAC Forever Green (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, pencil.

Kat Von D Hellbent Studded Kiss Lipstick
Kat Von D Hellbent Studded Kiss Lipstick

Kat Von D Hellbent Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “matte crimson red.” It’s a medium-dark, bright-but-not-neon red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. MAC Ruby (LE, $16.00) is glossier, warmer. Too Faced Melted Ruby (P, $21.00) is glossier. Chanel La Precieuse (317) (LE, $34.00) is similar. MAC Glam (DC, $16.00) is pinker, brighter. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $16.00) is more matte. NYX Chic Red (P, $4.00) is darker. NARS Dragon Girl (P, $25.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC MAC Red (P, $16.00) is similar. Dior Marilyn (LE, $36.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches /
view dupes.

The consistency of Hellbent is slightly dry and stiff, but I was able to still get it to apply evenly, and the color payoff didn’t suffer either. It had fully opaque color coverage that really clings and stays on lips for hours and hours. This is a shade that lasted for eight hours and left a stain that persisted for another hour or so. It was lightly drying, but it looks more drying than it actually felt while worn. It faded fairly evenly for me, and I didn’t have any issues with it feathering on me, but it is a color that is best applied with a lip brush for crisper edges as the drier texture made it difficult to get clean lines straight from the tube.

Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments
Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments

Here are the last four shades of Ardency Inn MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.). You can see the full range here if you missed any past reviews! :) I’ve been incredibly impressed by the texture, color payoff, and wear with the majority of the shades.

Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “bronze pearl with metallic gold.” It’s a rich, brightened copper with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The consistency was creamy, buttery, and smooth with intense color payoff. This shade still looked immacuate after ten hours of wear. This is an extremely dupable shade, though. Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE) is less frosted. Make Up For Ever ME728 Copper Red (P, $21.00) is lighter. LORAC Nude #2 (LE) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #3 (LE) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Dog Roses (LE) is less shimmery. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #3 (P) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Amber (P) is yellower. MAC Exquisite Ego #2 (LE, $21.00) is brrighter. LORAC Gold (P) is similar. Maybelline Breaking Bronze (P, $6.99) is lighter. NARS Isolde #1 (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. MAC Amber Lights (P, $15.00) is similar. bareMinerals Louder (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Rose Gold MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose with warm golden reflects.” It’s a warm-toned, golden plum with rose and mauve tones to it, and it has a soft, frosted finish. The color payoff was excellent, while the texture was so soft and blendable. The color lasted for ten hours before showing signs of fading. I think this shade is harder to dupe, because it’s not quite brown, but it’s not pink or mauve. bareMinerals Catch Me If (P) is much cooler-toned but has a similar finish. NARS Dolomites (Left) (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned, pinker. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is browner. Urban Decay Liar (P, $18.00) is brownre. Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $5.99) is pinker. MAC Smokeluxe #3 (P) is darker, browner. Disney by Sephora Chateau (LE) is darker, browner. theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned, less golden. Giorgio Armani #7 (P, $33.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Disco MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “sparkly smoky grape with silver reflects.” It’s a muted, medium-dark warm-toned purple with a frosted sheen and silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it had a creamier (almost wet-like) texture that was thinner than other shades in the range (but similar to Vintage Gold). It wore well for nine hours before fading slightly. MAC Plumluxe #3 (P) is lighter. NARS Jardin Perdu (Right) (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned. Too Faced Nashville (P, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Pearled Earth (P, $15.00) is similar. Too Faced Candied Violet (P, $16.00) is warmer. Too Faced Bluff (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is more sparkly. theBalm Lavish Latoya (LE, $16.00) is brighter, lighter. Urban Decay Rapture (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Winterized (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Peacock MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “deep cool brown with extreme turquoise reflects.” It’s a reddish-brown base with a cool-toned, green-teal shimmer on top–it is a duochrome that we have seen often (pretty, though!). The quality is top notch with rich, intense pigmentation and a soft, buttery texture. It lasted for ten hours on me. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is greener. NARS Malacca (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. Fyrinnae Boot Season (P, $6.80) is greener. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) is similar. MAC Woodsmoke (LE, $15.00) is darker, less shimmery. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is similar. (Also, consider MAC Blue Brown pigment, Too Faced Label Whore, etc.) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.25 oz.) contains ten shades ranging from shimmery gold to medium matte black. Each eyeshadow is 0.025 oz. It’s a so-so palette with a few nice shades, some less impressive ones. There are no total misses, but the two brighter shades didn’t translate as richly as they looked in the pan/swatch applied–I couldn’t get that green to pop no matter how many times I patted it on! The wear was good, though, across the board, and most of the eyeshadows wore well for eight to nine hours before fading.

Legend is a brightened, light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that was just a smidgen powdery (it seemed to have a whiter base). It lasted for nine hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Glisten is a medium-dark copper orange with a sparkly, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation, though the consistency was a little dry. It wore well for eight hours before fading, and there was a little bit of fall out over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Topaz is a golden, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly. This shade didn’t show fading until after nine hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Iridescent Purple is a cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff that had a slightly drier consistency. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Emerald is a medium-dark, warm-toned green with a golde, frosted finish. It seemed promising when swatched, as it had decent pigmentation, but it seemed to fade almost instantly on the eye–I would pat it on, blend, and poof! looked more like a khaki brown. That khaki brown color stayed like that for the next eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Vanilla is a light beige with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was somewhat powdery but had decent to good color payoff. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Caramel is a medium-dark, copper-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and blendable, though a bit powdery. It lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
