Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani

Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani have collaborated just in time for this Holiday season, as I am sure you are all aware. The palette looks so utterly beautiful, I couldn't not do a post about it. None of these pictures are my own, because in spite of my incessant sleuthing I can't find the release date for UK stores anywhere (if you know please share the news in the comments!). I do believe it will be up on their website tomorrow. 

There are 15 shades altogether with five shades on each line, kindly dissected by me row by row. The top two rows would make a perfect neutral palette by itself, and the last row is comparatively colourful which is a great addition.

Top Row: Blonde (a pale beige shade with a slight iridescence), Bathwater (slightly darker than Blonde with a pinkish gold tone) , Skimp (matte neutral beige), Steady (warm-toned yet still pale golden brown) and Punk (mahogany deep brown matte).

Below you can see what the exterior of the palette looks like. I think Urban Decay (as always) did a phenomenal job with the packaging, it looks classic and funky at the same time which is just so Gwen, which means it's perfect.

I, for one, cannot wait to get my hands on this palette. I believe it goes live on their website tomorrow. My favourite shades are: Punk, Baby, Danger and Serious. Although, naturally, I love Blackout; it is my all-time favourite matte black and perfect for setting (and correcting) liquid eyeliner. Thank you so much for reading, I will be writing another post shortly. Don't forget to leave a comment sharing your favourite shade below. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care.

Love ♥
