Black and Gold (Using Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to do something different in terms of eyeshadow placement and colour combinations and came up with this look.  I used bright gold and black from the Urban Decay Vice XX Ltd Reloaded Palette to create a strong, contrasting effect on the eyes.  The black is meant to be very defined in this look, which is why I haven’t blended it out or softened the edges. 

To complement the look: I used The Balm Greatest Hits Volume 2 In The Balm of Your Hand Palette for bronzer, brusher and highlighter.  I finished off the look with MAC Syrup on the lips.

For this particular look, I took inspiration from the print on one of my favourite skirts.  I love the combination of the gold, teal and black and thought it would look really interesting on the eyes.

This is the first of my looks using the new Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette.  I really wanted to try out some of the greens in the palette but I also liked the idea of adding in a little pop of red in the outer v.  If the red (Gash) is too much for you, you could always substitute it with a green (like Misdemeanor) or a brown (like Smog or Twice Baked) from the palette.

I am a huge fan of the Urban Decay Vice palettes, as they usually contain a fantastic range of colours and finishes.  So when I found out they were releasing a new palette as part of their 20th anniversary, I was super excited! The palette is currently exclusively available from Debenhams and the official Urban Decay webpage in the UK, giving us a chance to sample the delights of past and present must-have Urban Decay shades.

The Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette contains 20 eyeshadows spanning their history, including vintage shades back from Urban Decay’s early days, must-haves from their current collection and completely new shades.  The vintage shades in this palette bring back a lot of memories for me, as I remember purchasing some of them in my student days.  Goldmine was my very first Urban Decay purchase, swiftly followed by Midnight Cowboy and Hot Pants.   What better way to try out some past much-loved shades and to experience must-haves from the current range?
