Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette | Spring 2016
Yesterday I was hit with a surprise in my inbox, Ulta offering their platinum members the ability to purchase the Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded eyeshadow palette. Wait, what?! Am I the only one that hadn’t heard a peep about this palette until this point? Regardless, it’s no longer available but will return to Ulta’s website on 1/15/16 and in-stores on 1/24/16. No word where else it will be sold at the moment. The palette is a 20-eyeshadow palette like the previous Vice palettes but with one big difference, it’s $56 instead of the usual $60. Sure, it’s only $4 cheaper but hey it’s a start!
Another alarming thing for me is the lack of brights in this palette. The Urban Decay Vice palettes are know for their daring color combinations, including brights, bolds and glittery options. This palette appears extremely muted and a bit haphazard but I feel like it may appeal to more people because of it. “This ultra limited-edition collection features 20 addictive shades of Eyeshadow that span Urban Decay’s entire 20-year history. From vintage shades that go WAY back (like Gash, Acid Rain and UV-B) to must-haves from UD’s current collection, it’s all here. There are even a few new shades and several cult favorites from past palettes.
With a carefully crafted mix of new shades and old favorites, Vice Ltd Reloaded is the perfect representation of 20 years of UD. Experiment with color, go for a little smoke or play it neutral. UD included three totally NEW shades, five vintage shades, five exclusives from past palettes (like Vice, Vice Ltd and Book of Shadows Vol II), and seven bestsellers from their collection of singles. The kind of palette anybody can use, UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded offers something for everyone. And this is the first time several of these shades have been available in UD’s revamped shadow formula!
Need to apply on the run? The gorgeous, jewel-inlaid black case comes loaded with a huge mirror and a double-ended brush.
