The Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette has basically taken over the internet. As a pale girl myself I was especially excited to see these shades- they were made for me! Most palettes appear to be targeting medium skintones & sometimes I feel a bit left out. I have to keep a companion palette with a light enough blender, highlight, etc. But not with this palette! & it is so pretty! I’m a huge Gwen Stefani fan as well- I listened to Return of Saturn repeatedly so many times when I was younger that I can still remember every word. Keep reading to check out more!
The packaging is definitely awesome. I love the kind of unique combination with the black & white along with the antique gold. The metal details really hard hard & dense so I think they’ll hold up well. It looks so clean & modern.
From Sephora: In a true creative partnership, Gwen Stefani and Urban Decay created the UD | Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. Wende Zomnir—co-founder of Urban Decay—and her product development team spent countless hours at Gwen’s house, talking makeup and working closely with her on every detail of this palette—from the case to the amazing shades. These eye shadows were carefully created with Gwen Stefani, filling a void by creating the exact shades she always wished she had in her collection. This palette features her 15 must-have shades of eye shadow, including 12 never-seen-before colors and three that are from the Urban Decay shadow collection. With the ultimate range of neutrals and a few jewel tones to mix things up, this is Gwen Stefani’s go-to kit to create her most iconic looks. With these shades in your beauty wardrobe, you’ll have everything you need to recreate these signature looks for yourself. Each eye shadow in this palette is formulated with Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power, and blendability.
