The Urban Decay Gwen Steffani Eyeshadow Palette was on my lust list from the minute I saw teaser images on Instagram, not because I’m a die-hard Gwen Steffani fan (I’m not) but because this palette is so usable. The packaging is obviously gorgeous, I think it is actually quite compact. I love the large mirror and the fact that it is slim line, so it’s easy to travel with.
This palette has 15 gorgeous shades and I would absolutely use them all. It tends to focus on nude shimmers as there are five, all of which are different to each other and just so pretty! There’s such a great mix of shimmer and matte shadows too. Let’s take a closer look at each line at a time…
There are quite a few neutrals in this palette which makes it so wearable, I love the coral and gold undetones in shades such as Bathwater and Steady. Punk is a brilliant no-fuss shade to contour the eyes or build up for a smokey eye.
This row is perfect for everyday wear and Baby is one of my favourite shades in the palette, I know I will be using it a lot! Stark is a perfect base shade for any eye look.
This is the row that really gives this palette its oomph with some well pigmented shades that can be used to make a statement. Urban Decay do gold shades really well and 1987 is a brilliant gold, I also love the intense black and of course I love a navy eyeshadow so was very happy to see Danger.
There are so many looks you can create with this palette, I could play around with it for weeks! I have created a very easy bronzed look for Valentines over on Asiana.tv so be sure to have a look.
