Well there's only one short week til Christmas and nothing puts me in the mood for the holidays like Christmas music. I have been playing Michael Buble's Christmas album on repeat for the last few days and I love it! I love all of his songs but his version of Jingle Bells with The Puppini Sister's is so amazing. If you love big band music, you need to hear this one. His voice is just so incredible, I swear if him and Harry Connick Jr. got together- I would just die!! Ok so moving onto today's post- Urban Decay's Vice 3.
As I mentioned in my skincare routine post, I picked up the Vice 3 palette over the Thanksgiving weekend. I didn't get it on sale so it was a bit expensive but this palette is just gorgeous.
You get 20 shadows in this palette and a double ended brush. I personally think the brush that comes in their Naked 3 palette was a lot nicer but this is good too. I also love that it has a huge mirror and comes in a small bag itself. You could use the bag as a small makeup bag if you wanted to- it closes with a zipper on top and is a decent size actually.
Now I'm sure you have read reviews on this palette so I'm not really gonna do a full review here. I just wanted to show you guys some swatches and just basically show it off. lol. This palette has such great colors. They are all really pigmented and beautiful. They do have a lot of fall out like most of the Urban Decay palettes so I would recommend doing your eye makeup first with this but other than that these are really nice. All of these are smooth and apply really well, lots of them are sparkly/shimmery but I personally love that.
I love that there are some bright colors in here, it offers something a bit different if you have mostly neutrals in your collection and even though there are lots of vibrant shadows, you could totally do a an everyday look with this palette as well. Here's a look I created with this palette. I used Downfall above my crease, Heroine all over my lid and layered Freeze on top of that using my ELF glitter primer to make the color more vibrant. I also used Revolver in the outer V and Lucky which is a really pretty copper on my lower lash line.
Overall this is a great palette, even though it is a bit expensive, it's worth it. If you are still looking for a gift this would be perfect for someone who loves to wear bright colors or might not have anything like this in their collection or hey, buy it for yourself! Who else already owns this and loves it? Happy Holidays everyone!
