Urban Decay Vice 2, $59 at Sephora
This palette is full of pretty shadow shades! I got the original Vice Palette last year and liked it. I’ve had the Vice 2 since September I think and I will tell you that I like this better than the original!
Let’s take a look at the swatches. I did these swatches without primer. Please feel free to click on a picture to make it larger!
Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, and X-rated
Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash, and Poison
Radar, Damaged, Voodoo, Betrayal, and Derailed
Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush, and Rewind
Overall this is a very nice palette. I love a lot of the shades. Nobody does amazing green, blue, and purple shadow shades like Urban Decay! The only disappointing shades to me were X-Rated its a bit chalky and Stash because its a little on the chunky side and gave me some serious fallout under my eyes. There are a few shades that aren’t my thing like Betrayal and Dope but I can’t really say anything bad about them payoff or performance wise. They just aren’t my type of shadow shades.
The best in my opinion are Smokeout, Damaged, Ambush, Radar, and Derailed. Habit and Rewind are nice matte editions to the palette and really usable. I do wish there were more matte shadows in this palette. If you want a lot of shadow in one place check out the Vice 2!

Each Eyeshadow 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.
Vice 2 is drenched in a pretty-but-edgy, abstract orchid design that’s applied with a special process—so no two palettes are exactly alike—and topped off with a gunmetal jeweled UD icon. With the touch of a button, the case opens slowly to unveil all those gorgeous shadows, along with an oversized mirror and a double-ended Good Karma Shadow and Crease Brush.
I just about convinced myself that I didn’t need this but it’s getting added back on to my Sephora sale list. the colors are so pretty & they must come home with me =)
I really think this is a good pick-so many shadows and if you like a bit of color it’s gonna work for you!
