URBAN DECAY VICE 4: First impressions video & photos!

Let’s start by saying that I’m a sucker for Urban Decay palettes. Any new release, there I am eagerly waiting the first reviews and photos to emerge, to decide whether to add it to my collection or not. I managed to resist the recent Gwen Stefani palette, but the Vice 4 palette instantly caught my eye and I kept wondering whether to buy it or not. A month or so before Christmas, it appeared on feelunique.com (which is the only site I’ve found that’s an authorised UD retailer and will ship here for free) and I was torn between buying it and saving up for the Christmas period. That was when my boyfriend saw me gazing at it adoringly and said he’d add it to my Christmas presents – squeee!

So I had pretty high hopes and expectations for this palette, mainly because I’ve never been disappointed by an Urban Decay palette! As to whether the Vice 4 lived up to my expectations or not – you’ll find out in the video below!

If you’d like to see a closer look at the makeup look I created with this palette, here it is:

As promised in the video, here’s the description of each colour. As with all my previous Urban Decay palette reviews (here, here and here), I’ve taken these descriptions from the Urban Decay website.
