Urban Decay 'Gwen Stefani' Eyeshadow Palette Review

I mentioned this palette in my May Favourites, but I felt that I have been loving this palette so much that it needs its own dedicated post. I have basically been using this palette almost everyday for around two months now, but I have been using it on and off for about six months. It is a limited edition palette, so if you like the look of it (or love it like me) you need to purchase it soon, as I'm not sure when they will stop selling it.



As you can see, this palette is full of super beautiful neutral shades, with a pop of colour on the bottom row. I have yet to use the three colourful shades, but I have ideas for them in the future - especially now that its summer. I love that all of the shades have been named by Gwen herself, and so they all have a personal meaning to her, e.g. her birth year and her home town. The packaging is also simple yet eye catching.


This is the first row in swatches.
L-R:
Punk / Steady / Skimp / Bathwater / Blonde

My favourite shades from this row are definitely Punk for a deep crease, and Bathwater for a light shimmer shade across the lid.


This is the second row in swatches.
L-R:
Serious / Zone / Stark / Anaheim / Baby

My favourite shades from this row are Anaheim and Zone as they are the perfect crease shades for an everyday look, as one is more warm toned and one is more cool toned.


This is the third row in swatches.
L-R:
Blackout / 1987 / Danger / Harajuku / Pop

My favourite shade from this row is Pop, as it just catches the light perfectly.

This palette retails at £40 and you can get it from the Urban Decay website and Debenhams. It is honestly so worth it. The eyeshadows blend and apply so well, and the colour pay off is so good. I 100% recommend this palette to any eyeshadow lovers out there, as it gives you the perfect choice between neutral shades and more out there shades.

Have you got this palette?
