I can hardly keep up with Urban Decay launches! The Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Swatches has been available in the US but not in the UK, but this is a head’s up for UD fans that you’ll need a little extra holiday cash if you’re heading abroad, because this one is now available at World Duty Free Beauty at the airport. They’ve nabbed it on an exclusive all through June and July for £38.50, which kind of suggests to me that it will be available in retail after that.. but I imagine it will be more expensive.
It’s an exciting palette in terms of shades – beautiful quality as usual (the only one I didn’t think was the usual UD quality is 501, a gold glitter blue shade that didn’t seem true to the palette when on the skin.
Top Row from bottom to top: Suspend, Oil Slick, Roadstripe (throws off an iridescent pink/blue), Gash and Midnight Cowboy.
Row Two bottom to top: 501, Shallow, Laced, Hot Pants, Mildew.
Row Three bottom to top: Smog, Misdemeanor, Freakshow, Asphyxia, Acid Rain.
Row Four bottom to top: Moonflower, UV-B, Goldmine, Twice Baked, Anonymous.
Suspend, Shallow and Anonymous are mattes, Oil Slick, 501 and Twice Baked are glitters – the rest are sheens.
Some of the shades are bring-backs (Gash, Acid Rain and UV-B), some are existing and some are brand new, so it’s really one for the hard and fast UD fans. In the US, Ulta has the exclusive on this palette – when it first launched in January it sold out very quickly, but there seem to have been several restocks since. It’s more about how quickly you want to buy it if you go the World Duty Free option, because I’m sure we’ll see further UK stock down the line. I’ve also noticed that this palette doesn’t photograph all that well even in official images – best pictures I’ve found are at Temptalia.com if you want a more detailed look.
