Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Palette

Here we have the Latest release from Urban Decay that has everyone talking!.. For me personally It has been a while since I saw an image of a palette and got truly excited!.. I wanted to know everything about this palette as soon as I saw it and most importantly the release date!.. Now I actually have it in my hands.. It has confirmed my initial 'Love at first sight'.. Urban Decay have out done themselves with Gwen's help of course!!.. This palette is STUNNING! The colour payoff of all fifteen shades is absolute perfection... Even the box is beautiful!

Encased in a gorgeous golden/bronzed, edged palette with white and black doted packaging are fifteen beautiful shadows,

The twelve new shades, are all aptly named by Gwen to represent parts of her Life:
Blonde - a pale beige with pink iridescent.
Bathwater -a pale beige with gold pearl.
Steady - a medium rose with metallic gold.
Punk - the reddish-brown matte.

Baby - a cool metallic rose.
Anaheim - a light taupe-brown.
Zone - a medium matte brown.
Serious - a smoky grey with iridescent pearl.

Pop - a pale coral with iridescent sparkle.
Harajuku - a metallic blue-pink with iridescent microshimmer.      
Danger - a deep metallic royal blue with blue microsparkle.
1987 - a bright metallic yellow-gold.

The other three shades — Skimp, Stark, and Blackout — are favourites of Gwen's from the original Urban Decay collection. My immediate favourite shade is Punk, it is a red-brown matte it makes my blue eyes pop and will be such a stunning look for Autumn/winter.. 

But I also love the shade 1987 which is a beautiful gold, that looks amazing on my inner corners - but I keep changing the more I use the palette!.. Typical blogger so fickle..

Every shade in this palette is wearable, even Harajuku which is a lovely cool toned pink that looks great all over the lid for an easy day look, it doesn't make you look like you're trying to create a look from the 80's!...The release date is 22nd November, but if you go to and pop in your email, they will email you with the release date allowing you to be one of the first to buy it!!, It will be priced at £40.00 which means each shadow works out to be about £2.67 each.. An absolute bargain!!.. I am 100% sure it will be a sell out especially as it's Limited Edition!

Urban Decay have even popped a Blister sample pack of four of Gwen's eight lipsticks into the box that accompany this collection.. 

We have Rock Steady - cream finish is a lovely rich red

714 - Mega Matte Finish is a gorgeous bright red

Ex-Girlfriend - Sheer finish is an on trend nude

Firebird - cream finish is a stunning Fuschia pink.

Will you be rushing out to pick it up?
