I have been desperately searching for a good eyeshadow palette that has a variety of different shades. I realised that all my shadows fell under a similar colour scheme, which was mostly black, brown and gold. These colours are safe and you can't really go wrong with them. However I did want to experiment a bit more with colour. So I searched long and hard until I stumbled upon the "UD xx Vice Ltd Reloaded" palett. For a week or two I went back and forth in my mind as to whether or not to buy the palette but I finally did and I 100 % have no regrets.
The palette is reasonably priced considering it is a limited edition Urban Decay palette. I bought it on sale from Ulta for $34.00 online. (Originally cost $56.00).
The case is very sturdy and contains a large mirror and a double ended UD makeup brush, (one side for apply shadow while the other is for blending. )
"Each Eyeshadow in this limited-edition palette features Urban Decay's Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability." ULTA
Moonflower, Oil Slick, UV-B, Goldmine and Hot Pants are the top 5 highly pigmented shades. I find that they show up really well on my dark complexion. Sadly I found the matte colours such as Suspend, Laced, Twiced Baked and Anonymous were not as pigmented as I first expected. Which I find to be the case with most matte eyeshadows I try. Still it is disappointing because I expected more from UD. However I can't complain because as a whole the shadows are richly pigmented, smooth and easy to blend.
I would highly recommend it to everyone no matter your skin tones.
