Hi everyone! I unboxed the Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette a few days ago – you can click here to check that out. Otherwise, we have some swatches, first impressions, and a simple full look shortly!
I think that all of the eyeshadows blend really well. They feel butter-soft to touch and when blended I think they distribute fairly. I look forward to using the blue (Danger) eyeshadow and Gold (1987) eyeshadow on their own for festive looks.
I do not own any of the Naked palettes, except for Smoky. I have read comments in regards to some of the shadows appearing similar to other Naked palettes in terms of fair to nude shades. If that is the case, this is a win situation for me since I do not have those other palettes.
Pop, Harajuku, and Danger contain medium to large specs of glitter.
Blonde, Bathwater, Steady, Baby, and 1987 have a pearlescent sheen in them and when blended with a matte color – it creates color dimension that play beautifully together, I think.
Punk, Anaheim, Stark, Zone, Serious, and Blackout are matte eyeshadows. The three shades right in the center of the palette make for fantastic transition shades as they are not too overpowering on my skin tone.
I am on day three with this palette and continue to eyeball and play with it. This is another product happily added into my makeup museum.
