My reviews for the very limited released quantity, VIB Rouge exclusive Urban Decay Vice LTD eye shadow palette for the 2014 holidays. Why I chose this palette over the Urban Decay Vice 3? I love the idea of putting together in a palette a more neutral, jewel toned shades. Urban Decay Vice 3 is pretty much very similar in terms of color choices from the past Urban Decay Vice palettes. I did have reviews on the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette which you may read it here. It is very typical in every Vice palette to have darker shades which are mixtures of metallics, satin and matte finishes and shades which contains glitters is very unforgiving in terms of fall outs. Urban Decay Vice LTD still do have shades with glitter, but at least they are sugar fine and fall outs are lesser and easy to sweep with a brush coated with a little bit of powder. At least you can apply foundation before your eye makeup.

Urban Decay Vice LTD eyeshadow palette (Top – Bottom) Nameless, Crystal, Provocateur and Chase

 

I’ll start with the first column on the left are: Nameless, Crystal, Provocateur and Chase. Nameless appears as a warm bronze taupe with a satin finish. It does have excellent pigment and had minimal fall outs. Crystal appears as a cool ice blue with a metallic finish. It also got excellent pigment but does feel dry and have significant amounts of fall outs due to the glitter. Provocateur appears as a frosty bright pink with a metallic finish. It requires some build up for the color to show up over my skin. It also feels slightly dry and got minimal fall outs. Chase appears as a warm bright copper with a metallic finish. The pigment also requires a little bit of build up and has no noticeable fall outs.

Urban Decay Vice LTD eyeshadow palette (Top to Bottom) Backdoor, Goddess, Hoodoo and Last Sin

 

Second column from the left are: Backdoor, Goddess, Hoodoo and Last Sin. Backdoor appears as a blackened purple with a matte finish. It feels dry but does have excellent pigment and barely noticeable fall outs. Goddess appears as a navy blue with turquoise glitter and metallic finish. I find this shade tricky to work with. It’s super dry that has the tendency to clump making it harder to stick into your skin. It does have tremendous fall outs and needs build up to reach its maximum opacity. Hoodoo appears as a cool purple almost lilac with a metallic finish. It got excellent pigment, with no fall outs and easy to blend. Last Sin appears as a cool peach with a metallic finish. It requires some build up to be fully opaque on my skin, does have significant amounts of falls and feels slightly dry.

Urban Decay Vice LTD eyeshadow palette (Top to Bottom) Deeper, Vaporize, Freakshow and Roadstripe

 

Third and/or Middle column from the left are: Deeper, Vaporize, Freakshow and Roadstripe. Deeper appears as a warm bronze with a satin finish. It got superb pigment, with excellent texture and zero fall outs. Vaporize appears as a cool pewter with a metallic finish. It also does have excellent pigment however, it feels dry and got minor fall outs. Freakshow appears as a deepened purple with a satin finish. It requires a little built up for the color to show up, although the texture is pretty excellent. Roadstripe appears as an iridescent very pale white with a lilac shift. It’s a beautiful shade for highlights but it does require some build up over my skin. It also feels really dry and crumbly.

Urban Decay Vice LTD eyeshadow palette (Top to Bottom) Disco, Floss, Junkshow and Anonymous

 

Fourth column are: Disco, Floss, Junkshow and Anonymous. Disco appears as a champagne gold with a satin finish. It got very excellent pigment and texture with zero fall outs. Floss appears as a metallic blackened teal. From all the metallics on this palette, Floss offers the best pigment, texture and blendability. If this will be released again as a permanent single pan, one should definitely grab this. Junkshow appears as a pinkish purple with a satin finish.  It requires a little bit of build up to show up on my skin but doesn’t have any fall outs and got excellent texture.  Anonymous is a matte cream. The pigment is great but does feel a bit dry in texture. I barely notice any fall outs on this one.

Urban Decay Vice LTD eyeshadow palette (Top to Bottom) Heat, Perversion, Blitz and Laced

 

The last column are: Heat, Perversion, Blitz and Laced. Heat appears as a warm pumpkin with a metallic finish. It got superb pigment, texture and easy to work with. Perversion appears as a neutral black with a matte finish. From all the mattes in this palette, Perversion is the least dry and the best in terms of pigment. Blitz appears as a cool bright gold with a metallic finish. It’s one of the best performing shades in the palette. Also a must have if sold in permanent single pans. Laced appears as a muted taupe with a matte finish. It feels slightly dry and does have minimal fall outs although the pigment and blendability are commendable.

 

 The Bottom Line:

To sum it up, most of the metallics does have fall outs but not too drastic that it be harder to remove. It’s best to use a sticky base, like the Fyrinnae Pixy Epoxy, prior to application. Lessens the fall outs and the shades are best flaunted. The mattes feel dry which are pretty much expected. Nonetheless, it’s a nice palette for the holidays. It is different than your usual Vice palettes as this contains bright, cooler toned shades and more or less equal distribution of mattes, satins and metallics. Hopefully, this will be available to everyone within the next couple of months.

 

For my first look below I’ve used: Anonymous as a brow bone highlight, Nameless on my crease, Provocateur on inner half of my lids, Hoodoo on the outer half of my lids, Backdoor as outer corner V and lower lash outer corners and Last Sin as an inner eye corner highlight.  I used Too Faced Melted Berry as lipstick.

    LOVE your eye look! It’s beautiful! 😀

    Thank you so much for the review and swatches! I’m probably going to skip this one…

    The top and bottom rows (horizontal) contain a great mix of pretty neutrals/highlights…they’re kindof like the bread in a colorful sandwich, lol. I especially love Heat and Roadstripe!

    The two center rows (horizontal) are the reason I’m likely to skip this one…which sounds insane because I love the colorful shades but…

    I realized I owned 3/5 of the 2nd horizontal row (Goddess, Vaporize, Perversion)!

    And the best row of all, the 3rd horizontal row, the purple-pink row, I own 3/5 of the colors (Provocateur, Freakshow, Junkshow). I love Hoodoo and Blitz though!

    I’m so glad I like the regular Vice 3 palette better! One less limited edition item to freak out over, lol.

    I’m not sure if there are other repeats in this palette. I just listed the ones I personally own. I listed where each shade is from for reference below:

    – Book of Shadows 1: PERVERSION, GODDESS
    – Deluxe Eyeshadow Singles: FREAKSHOW (released alongside Frigid and Ruthless)
    – 15th Anniversary Palette: JUNKSHOW
    – Anarchy Face Case: PROVOCATEUR, VAPORIZE

      If you already have most of the colors then it be reasonable to skip this one. Thanks for reading my blog!

    Great review! As big of an UD junkie as I’ve been since it’s launch in 96, believe it or not I only JUST found out of this palette’s existence today! Literally an hour after ordering Vice 3 no less lol, & seriously there isn’t hardly any reviews on this beyond limited palette! Though I still wouldn’t mind having the LTD, I think I prefer the colors in Vice 3, as LTD has a lot of colors that are very similar to other UD shades I already have, & I prefer the darker shades of V3. But maybe if I get some extra money I’ll get it, that is if they release more! It’s still $60, right?
