After having so much love for Urban Decay’s Naked palettes I never thought they could outdo themselves until I treated myself to their Vice 3 palette. This palette contains an incredible 20 eyeshadows (created especially for Vice 3) encased in a pretty large palette with an impressively sized mirror and double ended eyeshadow brush packaged inside a beautiful makeup bag – woah, that was a mouthful.

The Vice 3 palette offers you everything you need and more with matte, satin, sparkly and metallic shades in an amazing range of colours. However, I would say there aren’t too many matte shades so if you’re not a massive fan of the more metallic shades then I would stay away ¬†from this palette – this wasn’t a problem for me as the mattes that are offered worked well for me. The shades are grouped in themed vertical rows of four which are; neutrals, jewelled and smokey. The texture of every single shadow is incredibly silky which makes them so beautiful to blend. As you can see from my swatches the pigmentation is fantastic and you can kind of see how buttery they are. With the cocktail of finishes and shades you can create such a wide range of looks with this one palette from bold and bright to subtle and neutral. This palette is probably the most perfect one I’ve come across for when you’re travelling as it has everything you need including a large mirror which is good enough to do your whole makeup look in.

This palette looks so luxurious yet funky with its bold 3D effect on the front. The Vice 3 is definitely one I recommend treating yourself to or buying for a loved one this Christmas and at ¬£42 I think it is very reasonable! However, this is limited edition so if you want to get your mitts on it I wouldn’t wait too long!
