A few weeks a go, I was lucky enough to win a fabulous giveaway hosted by the lovely Katy Belle. The prize was this gorgeous eye shadow palette from the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani range. I had been seeing many items from this range doing the rounds in the blogosphere so you can imagine my excitement when I realised I would be getting my hands on one for myself (thanks again Katy!). It has a stunning range of colours which will almost certainly cover both the day and the night. So far, I have mostly used it as an everyday eye palette using Baby as a base and Anaheim combined with Danger in my crease. It is such a lovely alternative to my usual everyday eyeshadow look using my Tarte palette. The eyeshadows blend to the eye so beautifully and they are also very pigmented which is something I love. I hate when you apply your eyeshadow and you have to keep layering it and layering it and still it looks like nothing; this is definitely not the case with this palette. I also think it is fabulous for having such a range of colours. I have so many “everyday” type palettes that, when it comes to the night time, I rarely have any colours to work with. This palette is now going to be such a joy to experiment with using the darker, smokier colours; Punk and Blackout are going to create such a gorgeous vampy look I can just tell! I have to admit though, I am not quite sure if I will ever use Harajuku or Danger as they might just be a little too on the bright side but we shall see. Overall I am so impressed with this palette from Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani. It is so beautiful and will definitely be a palette that I find myself reaching for everyday. Also, can I just comment quickly on how stunning the packaging is; the gold with the white looks so classic and chic – I love it!
