I’m glad they are extending Punk to the permanent line – I have it in the Gwen palette and it’s awesome – so pigmented and creamy!

Relish and Spike look like their formula is amazing, too – and very on-trend. I’m actually surprised that UD hasn’t released a red/burgundy palette to compete with Modern Renaissance, it seems like something they could do really well.

*Insert my obligatory hatred of drug/sex/generally just inappropriate makeup shade names here.* But I have to say “Narcotic” really does it for me. I’m pasty pale and considering going back to platinum so Ice Queen is something likely to happen.

Oh me, oh my….C-Note, Thunderbird, Smokeout and maybe Serious (if it’s better than how it appears to swatch) and Blitz have all caught my eye (and heart). I’ll be eager to see if I have near-dupes of any/all of them because I really feel I’m drowning in eyeshadow lately. I mean, if you have to drown, that’s a good way to drown (because it’s a whole lot safer than water) but I just feel overwhelmed once again and that keeps me from using my stash to its full potential of enjoy-ability!

…and it turns out that I actually OWN Smokeout (in the Vice2 palette) and C Note was pretty much the only reason I wanted to get Vice4, though I held off on it). See what I mean about being swamped by eyeshadows!!!

Some of these look really beautiful. What’s up with Serious, though? I can’t even tell what color it wanted to be? Will await your reviews. Thank you, Christine.

I gasped when I looked at the swatch of Relish. UD Single shadows are one product from them I have NEVER had an issue with, particularly their mattes. Relish looks like it’s going to be a beautiful representation of the brand.

Looks like some of the colors from the Gwen Stefani palette are here… I picked up that palette at Nordstrom Rack for $24.97 and surprisingly, I really like it. I think I can pass on these shades. I do like Spike, though! Punk and Blonde are my favorite colors from the Gwen palette.

I’m in HUGE trouble here! I just fell hard for Vice, C-Note, Punk, Relish, Intergalactic and probably Midnight Blast as well. This is gonna get expensive!

Smokeout is really pretty. It’s the most tempting to me, with that shift you can really wear it with anything or make a neutral look more interesting.

Blitz has been one of my favorite UD eyeshadows since it came out in one of the Vice palettes!!They re released it in one of the other Vices but it wasn’t as good of a formula as the first release it was still good but definitely not the same or as good.I hope this one is as good as the one I fell in love with.Relish,Spike, and Narcotic are beautiful I have 2 of these already in my cart I was just waiting on your swatches Christine!Im going to get the 2 Moondust also because I love them in general?.

Wow 3 from Gwen Stefani palette, and I noticed they put Baby in a recent palette as well. Now they just gotta make Bootycall from Naked 2 permanent, that shade is 100.

C note and Thunderbird are beautiful shades, but a couple are not (Chaos and Serious). By why, oh why is UD persisting with the drug references for the names of their products? It’s a serious turn off.

I just squealed out loud with delight. I’m so happy to see some of the shades from their discontinued palettes: Vice 4, Gwen Stefani, Electric Palette. I still have my Gwen Stefani and Electric palettes but I gave my niece my Vice 4 palette since the only 2 colors I used from it were C-note & 1985. I will pick up C-note, it’s does the most amazing smokey eye and Relish makes me drool.

C-Note and Blitz look really interesting. Liking the looks of Vice, Blonde, Thunderbird, Smokeout 🙂 It looks like Chaos and Serious are going to be disappointing, though, maybe Narcotic too 🙁

Just after saying I’m going to try downsizing my collection, I’m going to say Thunderbird and Midnight Blast are speaking very loudly to me.

Oh my…Vice, C Note, Thunderbird, Extragalactic, and Midnight Blast. I’ll have to see about the Moondust shadows. Sometimes there’s just too much glitter fallout, but both of those look nice.

Wow, the majority of these look pretty good. But I do need to do an invitory of what I already have. Several of these names sound familiar. But Relish does not and it looks fantastic!

I picked up Midnight Blast and Thunderbird. Midnight blast is very pretty, but Thunderbird has a black base, which is super disappointing. I wanted it to be intense shimmer, but it applies splotchy, and I got black shadow everywhere-not cute!

Does anybody have a made up eye look with Relish? I’m afraid it would just look like I’ve been crying all night on me. I did look OK in Salazen Grum though. Is Vice like any of the other purples in the UD line up? I’ve got the Vice XX,Vice 4, moondust, naked smoky and Alice through the looking glass palettes, psychedelic sister, afterburner, and plague. Good thing I checked out my palettes before ordering since I saw some of the colors I was considering I already had. LOL
