            Today I’m going to review the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decay! This palette came out a few months back, but I’ve had several people ask my thoughts on the palette, so I wanted to give you guys the rundown.

            This eyeshadow palette was part of a collaboration between Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani herself. Gwen hand-picked the 15 shades in this palette,  choosing shades she would most want in a collection for herself. Twelve of the shades are brand-new shades, and three are long-time Urban Decay favorites.  Even the packaging is unique and fun, with a graphic dot-design inspired by Gwen’s love of patterns and black and white.

            This palette gives you a beautiful mix of neutrals as well as a few pops of gorgeous color to give you the tools you need to create looks inspired by Gwen’s personal style. The shades are named after Gwen’s songs, which is a cool way to tie in her music to her makeup:

            First of all, I have to say that I love the color selection in this palette. I wear nuetrals on a daily basis, but I love to mix in little pops of color to my look, so this palette is a great choice for me. I also love that there is a good mix of mattes and shimmers, so you can go for a trendy matte look or give yourself some shimmer if you want.  My personal favorite shades are Skimp, Zone, Punk, Steady, Danger, and Pop. And let me tell you; the pigment in these are incredible. I made the mistake of loading my brush down with Danger the first time I tried a look using that shade, and I had WAY too much; my entire eyelid almost up to my brow bone ended up covered in blue eyeshadow and I had to take it off and start over. Keep that in mind if you decide to buy this palette; a little goes a long way.

            As per usual with Urban Decay shadows, these blend like a dream. The formula is buttery and so blendable, and all the colors in this palette work so beautifully together to create different looks. On a normal day, I will usually apply Skimp on my brow bone, then apply either Steady or Pop to my eyelid and Zone in the crease. Sometimes I will deepen the crease with Punk, too, for a little more dimension and warmth. For a night out or if I want a little more punch, I love using Harajuku or Danger all over my lid or to set my eyeliner.

            Overall, I think this is an amazing palette, and it’s definitely worth the money. Because the shades are so pigmented, the colors will last a long time, and you get 15 pans in a single palette. It normally retails on the UD site for $58, but you can snag it for just $25!!  Or you can buy it on Amazon here:
