You know what they say—all work and no play makes (fill in the blank) a dull boy/girl. Well, for us fab gals that are all about a little color and epicness, this post is for you. One of my favorite cosmetics companies, Urban Decay, released their latest eye palette collection for the Fall and holiday season. Vice 2 is the second of their collections which has replaced their Book of Shadows palettes. Last year, the first Vice palette was introduced, and I quickly bought mine as soon as it went on sale (click here for our pics and review). This year was no exception, as I ordered Vice 2 the day it was offered on UD’s website.
Let’s just say I am a fan of their vibrant and rich hues, and enjoy their collections immensely. Value wise, they pack a lot of colors for the amount of what 2 or 3 colors from other brands offer. And style and look wise, the colors are usually bold for play, but they also offer some subtle/naked shades for everyday use and even in the office.
So let’s take a look at Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette, which encompasses 20 Brand New shades:
Smokeout- Dark, taupey satin (perfect for smoky eye) /Play
Lovesick- Black matte with iridescent micro-glitter (perfect for smoky eye) /Play
Shellshock- Bright metallic silver /Play
Coax- Medium metallic pink with golden iridescent micro-sparkle /Play
X-Rated- Baby pink satin/ Work or Play
Prank- Deep navy matte with turquoise floating pearl (perfect for smoky eye) /Play
Madness- Bright metallic blue shimmer with blue micro-glitter /Play

Dope- Warm champagne satin/ Work
Toxic- Metallic copper-pink shimmer with tonal micro-glitter / Work or Play
Habit- Light nude matte/ Work
Ambush- Metallic brown satin/ Work or Play
Rewind- Medium brown matte/ Work or Play
The colors in this palette are right up my alley, and I am pretty sure I will be using a lot of them. Madness, Voodo, Betrayal, Damaged, Smokeout, and Ambush are on my hit-list. The collection also comes with a 2 sided brush for expert application and blending.
For the holiday season, Urban Decay Vice 2 packs a punch, as many of the colors can transition from work to play, which includes holiday parties and festivities.
