Sat in front of me is one of the most gorgeous eyeshadow palettes I own, and I am over the moon to be sharing it with you lovelies as from what I have tried so far it is one of my favourite palettes by Urban Decay yet. If you have no idea what I am talking about, I am talking about the Vice 4 which came out quite recently in the UK. I am a huge fan of all things Urban Decay and there is no hiding that, owning every one of their Naked Palettes and some of their other products such as Primer and Mascara but as far as eyeshadow goes I am yet to be let down by one of their palettes. I thought I would bring you a first impressions post, followed by a full review with all of the shades and also some make-up looks ready for the holiday season.

The palette itself is a limited edition one with all of the shades inside limited to that particular palette, when I opened the packaging I was super happy with the gorgeous bag which it comes with and I will probably use it as a travel bag for other products. I was in love with outside of the palette at first sight, it's so vibrant and pretty and definitely is an eye catcher. When I opened up the palette the first thing I noticed was the giant mirror, which is perfect for doing your makeup with along with the mixture of colours within the palette. Inside the Vice 4 is 20 shades all of which are completely different to any of their palettes I have seen previously. The shades within the palette are a mix of glitter, metallic and matte, ranging from browns, a mix of orange, green and even a lovely bright purple shade. For those who love creating stand out looks or love to add a bit of colour to their every day looks this is the palette for you, my favourite shades within the palette are 1985, Beat Down, Flame and Fast Ball and although they are quite out there, I love that about them and they will compliment darker shades such as brown and black well.

When trying the shadows, like all Urban Decay products they are long lasting, and look amazing. With each application I find myself being more creative with the colours and mixing them up, as well as experimenting with some of my previous Naked Palettes and also adding water to make them more thick and easy to apply as liners. I am in love with this palette and if you fancy treating a loved one to one for Christmas you can purchase them directly from the Urban Decay website or click here.
