UD Vice 4 Review & Swatches

I posted a picture of this UD Vice 4 palette last month on my Instagram, but didn’t get the chance to post it on the blog nor to swatch this palette. So, today I decided to post this UD Vice 4 Review & Swatches. I’ve posted a tutorial using this vice 4 palette on my previous post, please check it out! I’ll be posting more tutorials using this palette in the near future.

YES THIS PALETTE IS LIMITED EDITION! So, if you want it you better get it before it’s gone! Actually at this moment when I’m writing this post, this palette is already out of stock in Sephora. I was lucky to have bought it right when it was released in Sephora’s website, along with my KVD Mi Vida Loca Remix palette.

First Impression

Gorgeous palette, with beautiful shades. You get some colorful shades, you get neutral ones, some with sparkles, some are matte. The packaging is breathtaking, I absolutely in love with the cover. Very pretty! The eyeshadows are very vibrant in color, very pigmented. Knowing how the UD palettes are, I expected these shadows to be smooth and blendable, and they are!

There are 20 shades in this palette, and I categorize them according to their rows (across from L-R). The first row seems to be where the “Party” shades with all the pearls and glitters. The second row is the “Reds”, most of the shadows on this row has a red/pinky undertone. The third row is the “Greens” since the majority of the shades on this row is green, while the other 2 is more on the taupe-brown shade. The fourth row is the “Orange” since the shades on this row is very warm. I find that this palette doesn’t really have a pattern, but oh well going across makes more sense than going down the column.

    • Bones (oyster satin with pearl)
    • Grip (taupe matte with iridescent micro-glitter)
    • Deadbeat (black satin with micro-glitter)
    • Beat Down (deep metallic violet with blue micro-glitter)
    • Pandemonium (no description from Sephora, so my description of this shade is deep plum with micro-glitter)
  • Second row

    • Fast-ball (metallic peachy pink with micro-glitter)
    • 1985 (metallic fuchsia with fuchsia micro-glitter)
    • Underhand (burgundy-brown satin)
    • Harlot (metallic lavender)
  • Third row
    • Discreet (soft dusty mauve matte)
    • Grasshopper (metallic emerald w/green micro-glitter)
    • C-Note (frosted green with micro-glitter)
    • Arctic (bright teal with tonal sparkle)
    • Robbery (deep metallic brown-gunmetal)
  • Fourth row
    • Bitter (reddish brown matte)
    • Flame (bright orange with gold micro-glitter)

UD Vice 4 Tutorial #1

I finally have the chance to play with my UD Vice 4 palette! This UD Vice 4 tutorial is fun, and has a little bit of color. It’s a really fun look to wear especially for a party. Of course you can skip the black winged liner, and go for just a simple line along the upper lash line.

For the rest of the face, keep it simple and light. No over-contouring, no carved brows, and definitely nice soft natural lips. By keeping the rest of the face simple, you can keep the whole look youthful. Take it easy on the contouring and brows if you want to look younger. Thicker brows & rounder cheeks can make you look younger than chiseled cheekbones & overdrawn brows.

Anyways, one thing to note is that I applied “Flame” on my eyelid dry, and then I wet my brush and re-apply the same shade on the center of the lid. As you can see from the picture below, when I applied “Flame” dry it has a shimmer, but when I applied it wet it looks more shiny.
