Review: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette


After getting the Naked Smokey palette I have become addicted to the Urban Decay palettes and when I saw the queen of music that is Gwen Stefani was bringing out her own palette to the brand it just HAD to be mine. The packaging it just completely stunning and very sturdy, very classy like the woman herself. it doesn’t come with a brush (not that we ever use them anyway) but it does come with big fab mirror with the little “magic’s in the makeup” slogan in the corner.

As always the quality of the shadows are just plainly amazing and so well worth the price tag. I have been playing around with it all week and I have got so many amazing looks out of it for both daytime and nighttime. There are 15 shades in the palette – 12 of which are brand new for the brand and 3 of which (Blackout, Skimp and Stark) that are permanent to the brand. There is a mixture of matte and shimmers and all the shades are so wearable, there is a bit of mad blue in there that to be honest I completely adore lightly put into the crease, it is just sooo Gwen!!


So lets get into the shades:

  • Blonde – pale beige needed in every palette
  • Bathwater – pale gold pearl that I personally love for inner corner
  • Skimp – pale nude satin shade
  • Steady – medium rose metallic gold
  • Punk – red brick brown matte
  • Baby – cool metallic rose gold shade
  • Anaheim – light taupe/brown matte
  • Stark – nude pink matte
  • Zone – medium brown matte
  • Serious – smoky grey with a hint of pink shimmer
  • Pop – coral gold shimmer
  • Harajuku – metallic pink with a slight blue shimmer
  • Danger – deep metallic royal blue
  • 1987 – bright metallic yellow-gold
  • Blackout – blackest black matte shade also in Naked Smokey
I do find Blonde & Skimp can look a little light but as I use them as a highlight or lid base they are great for me. This is defiantly my favourite Urban Decay palette yet and if I could recommend you get any of them it would be this one.
