Ulta is having an amazing offer on the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. It is on sale from $58 to $39! I arrived at the store a few minutes before opening time. They only had 6 palettes available so I was glad I went early. It seemed to me that they are only going to have a couple of them each day to get you into the store. But if you can get there as soon as possible at opening time if you want this deal! I can’t find any info about when this deal ends so work fast. Also at the moment points are doubled for members and tripled for platinum members. This deal will end June 18th.
Read on to see my review of the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Review.
I love the packaging for this palette! The black, white, and gold definitely screams Gwen Stefani. The circles on the front add a great 60’s vibe. It’s heavy, sturdy, and feels very lux. All the names of the shadows are all personal to Gwen. It’s magnetic to keep it closed which I think is a very nice feature. On the inside the eyeshadows are in circles and it has a full size mirror. They also give you a sample of the Gwen Stefani Lipsticks.
Urban Decay says that Gwen was very involved in the process of her line. All the colors of the line correspond to her signature looks. This palette has mostly nude/neutral shades with a few smoky and a couple pops of color. The shadows are very creamy and bendable. The pigments vary from good to very good. My favorite shades are:
- Stark – Is an amazing base shade
- Punk – I love putting this into my crease
- Steady – I’ll put this all over the my lid when I want a simple day look
- Baby – This is a gorgeous rosey color
- 1987 – This is just such a different color to anything else I have
Here are all the colors swatched on my arm using natural light. I applied two layers of each shade.
I’ve wanted this palette for a long time and I have to say I’m impressed. Overall this is a great high quality palette. The more I use it the more I’m sure it will be one of my favorite palettes! Also it’s one of those makeup items that looks very nice on your makeup table.
