You know, I’m still relatively new to makeup, but one thing that I’m noticing really strongly right now is how similar all of these releases are to each other. Looking through these swatches, I feel like I’m seeing double for the tenth time in the last few months. I know for a fact that I’ve got close enough dupes to almost every shade here, which is such a bummer because I really like Gwen Stefani and really could have been excited for something that was a little more unique.

I’m not as new and I’m feeling the exact same thing, Nicole. With a lot of these, my reaction is kind of ‘…it’s fine?’ I think if you’ve got your staple palettes (like any of the Nakeds, that kind of thing) and then some of the more interesting releases over the years, ones like this tend to get a bit meh.

So, you’re not alone!

Was thinking the same thing , I couldn’t have said it better myself !!!
For listening to Gwen Stephanie’s music since tragic kingdom , which feels like forever ago , watched her grow through the years into a talented , successful artist , she’s had her own perfume line , designed clothes , brought attention to the harijuku , i was expecting so much more out of this collaboration with urban decay ! This didn’t exceed expectation at all …

The swatches don’t look bad. Hopefully they aren’t powdery. My Vice 3 was swapped away because of that issue. I only have one of these colors, blackout. There’s only one, danger, that I’ll get no use out of. I think I’ll be needing this if it gets a decent review.

I’m still going to get this because the collector in me has to but I feel like there are too many light shades in this palette that almost run the same at a glance. Reminds me of the left half side of both lorac megapro palettes. On here, the first 4 shades of the first 2 rows hardly offer any contrast. Some of the transition colors would show up on medium and deeper skintones with a lot of building but the other lighter shades might not as they are already not opaque enough to show up on a swatch. The blue is quite rich but the pink is a bit too faint. Love the packaging. Love the collaboration but this might not be as well-rounded a palette as the Naked line or for those who want to just use this exclusively for a look. Thanks, Christine!

This looks like it would be a nice palette for someone who doesn’t already one one of the Naked palettes. I’m a little disappointed on how boring the colors in this are.

Such a nice concept. I love what Gwen and UD came up with, but I will have to pass. I’m sure her true fans will want to collect this and will pick it up. I am a fan of hers, but I honestly own too many shadows similar to the ones in this palette. I see this palette working out for everyone, but mostly for beginners.

This palette really appeals to me for personal use, but I’m fair skinned with deep set eyes and prefer lighter shades on my eyes. It doesn’t seem like a very versatile palette for a wide range of skin tones or even age groups and I doubt I would use it for many clients unless they are similar in skin tone and preference to me, especially with all of the frosty, light shades that can look super ashy and unflattering if you’re anything deeper than porcelain or have significant aging around the eyes. As much as I personally like this palette, I really don’t think the world needs another palette for young white ladies with minimal signs of aging. Someone please correct me if you have a medium to deep skin tone and/or you are more mature and this appeals to you.

That being said, I suppose on a special, limited release like this there is no obligation to make it a universally appealing palette. I am just disappointed because I feel like a lot of people will buy it since its so limited and collectible and then not get much use out if it because the majority of the shades aren’t so flattering on a wide variety of skin tones and textures.

Some of these swatches are so fair that I’m not even sure that you’d see much distinction on the skin, and that’s coming from someone who has a porcelain complexion! Danger and Harajuku do look nice, maybe I’ll just keep an eye out for dupes of those!

I’m a porcelain princess too, and I totally agree with you. Even at first glance I thought that the majority of the shades looked similar, and I can bet that you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between them once applied on the skin. This whole palette just doesn’t appeal to me. I expected something a lot different from a UD collab with Gwen.

I’d get this palette solely for Punk, Serious, and Danger. They look very pigmented. Although many of the other shades are unremarkable, which is a bummer ?

I’m very disappointed in this palette. Half of the swatches look great and the other half look kind of sheer. Where’s the pigment?? Also, it’s 90% neutral shadows and didn’t UD come out with at least 3-5 neutral palettes already that’ they already sold a zillion of?? I mean, I know Gwen is known for neutral eyes and bold lip, but maybe she could’ve done a more colorful palette inspired by her fashion or music. Second, there are 6 super light shades -what’s up with that??? Most of the light ones are either going to look the same against my skintone or the super shimmery ones can only be used as inner corner highlights for me. I like the pops of color –the pink looks kind of sheer but it’s pretty, and the blue looks amazing, so I’ll be looking at dupes for that. At this point, UD has spent too much time promoting this mediocre palette -I think they should just focus on getting Spectrum back into stock!

Just as I first said upon seeing pics of the palette previous to seeing swatches of it, it runs too light for most of us out here. As a medium olive hued person, I feel that this palette is primarily aimed at very fair people. And it also appears to have too many shades that just run together with only slight differences between them. However, there are approximately 5-7 shades here that I really DO love! Can we just stop and gasp in awe of that rich blue, Danger, and the unusually green tinged gold, 1987 ?!?

Love the packaging so much! But a couple of the swatches I’m not liking the looks of. It looks like this will need a primer at least. That really stinks because I was hoping these would super awesome. I’ll probably still buy this just because I love Gwen. But, now I’m not so pumped now. I hope it performs better than it looks!

Well I was hoping some of the lighter shades would run more neutral to cool based on the promo pics….but nope. Very odd color composition, with all the light to medium shades running very warm, and all of the darker shades and pops of color being very cool, except for the gold. I love the darker/brighter shades, but it seems like the neutrals are all too similar (and warm!). I think this would have been more appealing if they had either added a better variety to the neutrals, and maybe had a couple of warmer pops of color, or made it a less expensive 8 to 10 pan palette.

Every eyeshadow could be exact duplicates but I’m still buying 2 palettes. One to use, and one to keep pretty and pristine!

I don’t like the bubblegum pink though… that doesn’t seem like a Gwen color makeup-wise to me.

Most nude palettes look like mud on my very fair, neutral skin, but this has me hopeful. It resembles my custom zpallet of inferior depotted shadows. I can’t justify premium prices when I would use fewer than half the shades. I am looking forward to swatching this when they get it at Sephora, although I am irritated they are releasing it just AFTER the sale.

Hmmmmmm. I was really looking forward to this release but I thought that some of these lighter shades would look a little more… distinct when they were swatched. The light beige shades really do look similar to each other and there are so many of them! I was totally fine with the palette being mostly lighter neutral colors because I’m also a super pale person, but based on these swatches I think they could have easily cut three or more of the shades and lowered the price. I’ll still withhold judgment until the full review.

Yawwwwwn. Urban Decay is really losing its touch. I got all excited when the Electric Palette came out that we’d be seeing a mix of the old UD with bright colors in addition to the NAKED-focused UD. But that seems not to be the case. Too bad, I guess that’s what Indie brands are for these days.

Yawn! Underwhelmed and disappointed. I was think Gwen & UD collaborating would make a bangin palette with some excitement. The collector part of me isn’t even tempted. As you all know i don’t really use the things i collect. I don’t find it interesting enough to even want it. Can’t wait to see your review and what eye look you conjure up. You can turn chalk dust & colored pencil into a phenomenal eye look!

I was super excited for this. I love Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani but this palette, aside from the packaging, is mediocre at best. Hard pass. Disappointing UDxGwen.

Lots of very similar orangey colours and the mattes look a little dry to me.
I agree with Nicole above – all the releases are looking very similar. The exception would be the bareMinerals Soft and Smoky that I am still trying to find. And the Lorac Pro Metals released ages ago. That was a good one too.

The swatches looks good! I thought this thing would be a complete fail .. I love all the colours selected and all, but the this palette makes me feel like: Shall I really skip it or am I going to regret not buying it later?!

This is a nice palette, but sadly, I can tell it will be way too warm for me. 🙁 A little disappointing for a Stefani fan, but warmer toned, lighter skin tones will get some good use out of it.

I was really excited for this collaboration but now I am really thinking if I should get it as some of these colours are already in UD Naked 3 (which I have) except the blue, gold and pink. How I wished that they came up with a quad or so and then lipsticks. Finding out that they did not have any lipstick (and lip glass) in this collab was a bummer. Gwen and her signature lip colours could have been a nice addition (red, nude and pinks)

I still like this. Not sure I’ll get it as I suppose I have at least some dupes. But it is a pretty, officefriendly palette, I think.

This is super disappointing 🙁 i’ve loved Gwen since I was really young so I was so stoked for this but everything is just so boring and so easily dupeable. Oh well.
