I feel like it has been forever since I last talked to you! We had a crazy ice storm here in Georgia and I was without power for 37 hours, so no power= no blogging :( being without power is so boring! Anyways I’m back with a review and swatches of the Urban Decay Vice LTD Palette. So keep reading to see all about it.
Urban Decay VICE LTD Palette Review and Swatches:
So I really debated on if I should show you guys this palette or not because it is limited edition and it is actually sold out online everywhere…BUT you can still buy it in your local Ulta or Sephora if they are still available. Also there are 20 shadows in this palette and only 5 new ones, so you could find the majority of the colors…just not in this palette.
I bought this palette for myself on my 1 Year Blogiversary, I really wanted something to remember it by and of course I wanted it to be makeup, was there another option?!? :)
Get ready for lots of pictures…
As all Urban Decay palettes they never cease to amaze. They are always super creative. The outside is a lime green/chartreuse color that is bold and in your face. It has a nice UD rhinestone detail in the center. The palette is pretty bulky so not the best travel companion. It also has a huge mirror on the inside (I’ve kept the clear plastic sheet over it, cause I’m weird haha). All the names of the shadows are printed underneath each shadow. It also comes with a dual ended eye shadow brush which can definitely come in handy!
This palette is $59 and like I said can only be found at your local Ulta or Sephora if they are still in stock.
Starting from the top row to the bottom.
1 // Nameless 2 // Backdoor 3 // Deeper 4 // Disco 5 // Heat
1 // Crystal 2 // Goddess 3 // Vaporize 4 // Floss 5 // Perversion
1 // Provocateur 2 // Hoodoo 3 // Freakshow 4 // Junkshow 5 // Blitz
1 // Chase 2 // Last Sin 3 // Roadstripe 4 // Anonymous 5 // Laced
The colors in this palette are absolutely gorgeous. The main reason I got this was because I sometimes get stuck in a rut where I only use neutral shadows. A girl that works at my local Ulta always has the coolest eye makeup (usually bright funky colors) and I told her I wanted to start wearing more color, she told me this palette was brand new and when I looked at it there was no question I just bought it. It is the perfect mix of colors and neutrals. It has 4 mattes and 16 shimmers/glitters. Every shadow is really pigmented and super creamy and blendable.
The only problem I have with this palette is the shadows crease on me so bad throughout the day. I’ve never had that problem before (okay maybe back in middle school). I always wear a primer so this shouldn’t happen. The first time I noticed it I was wearing Goddess (Dark Blue) and underneath I was wearing MAC’s Paint Pot in Painterly and it creased so bad you could barely see any shadow. So I tried another color the next day with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and it still creased. I’ve noticed the ones that do crease are the bold/darker colors. This actually drives me pretty insane tho.
I wanted to love this palette so much, and I do like it still, but it’s not my new best friend. I HATE that it creases, like it pains me to look in the mirror and see my eye shadow is no where to be found, after all that work. I still use it and will continue to use it because the colors are so beautiful and maybe I can find a solution to my creasing problem. If you were asking me if you should buy it I would probably say no, you can find similar shadows that don’t crease.
Have you tried this palette? Do you get the same results as me?
Glad you have power back, Anna, and what a great review! It’s too bad the shadows crease. UD usually puts out really good products. Thanks for sharing with the Peonies!
Thank you Lecy! Yea UD usually does have really great stuff, I have the Naked palettes and they never crease on me, not sure what happened with this palette. Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
Gorgeous pictures, girl! Loved reading your review. I waffled back and forth on whether to buy this palette SO much! I finally decided not to. I’m kind of glad, now that I read your review. The colors are beautiful! But I can’t stand eyeshadows that crease or don’t show up true to color. Thanks for the review!
Thank you so much!! Yea glad you didn’t waste your money either, I think I’m going to return it and get something else! It’s too much money to spend on something that doesn’t work properly! Still a bummer though! :/
i’ve been on a quest to swatch this palette, so i’m glad you’ve reviewed this for us!
Absolutely! I heard it’s coming back in stock at Ulta and Sephora soon. But like I said in the review, it just didn’t work for me so it’s not something I’m suggesting! :)

Oooh, I love how sparkly these colors are! I am kind of stuck in a rut with neutral colors, too. This palette would be a fun way to mix things up! p.s. I think it’s awesome that you spoiled yourself for your blogiversary. You deserve it!
I know the colors are so fun and sparkly, it stinks that I didn’t like it. I think I’m going to take it back soon and get something else!
I wear the same make-up everyday. i probably need to get out of my rut and try some new colors like these!
I don’t wear the same makeup everyday, but I do usually tend to stick to neutrals a lot more. So I wanted this palette to really inspire me to step out of the neutral zone and use more color, too bad it’s not my favorite! :(
I got the regular Vice Palette (It’s just mirrored on the top) back in November. I bought it as a birthday gift to myself…and I was disappointed too. The shadows definitely crease, badly; almost to the point that I don’t want to wear them. The UD electric palette doesn’t crease AT ALL though and I really love the colors in it.
Yea I don’t know what is up with these shadows creasing so bad because no other shadows ever crease on me. It’s pretty unfortunate and I may even return it and get something else.

I appreciate the honest review!! I was thinking about this palette, but am sad to hear that the shadows crease so much!
Thanks for linking up to Best of Beauty! xo
Absolutely! I know it really is a bummer! Urban Decay makes great products, but for whatever reason this just didn’t work this time. Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
OH no Anna! So sorry you are disappointed in this palette! The swatches looked so gorgeous! I am glad we did not move to Alpharetta (winter storm and no power oh my you poor thing!!!). Sending some warm sunny streams up to you! ;-)
I know it was definitely a bummer, and I love Urban Decay shadows so these just must be too creamy or something! Oh well, they are still pretty! :)
Haha yea just be glad you don’t live here, it has been rough lately. It’s really nice today, but it’s supposed to start snowing at 8 tonight :/
Great review Anna!
Thank you so much!! :)
