The Urban Decay Vice 4 palette ($60) is my first palette from the Vice series. The other palettes are beautiful, but I didn’t have an interest in them like I did this one! This palette contains 20 shades that are a mix of matte, shimmer, satin, and glittery shades. The palette is housed in a pouch that matches the palette.
I LOVE the packaging. The colors remind me of gasoline reflecting in the sunlight. The spindle part is raised from the packaging. Mine hasn’t broken or anything, but it does seem a little fragile, which is worth noting for travel.
The palette has a large mirror and comes with a high quality brush.
Some of my favorite shades: Pandemonium, Grasshopper, 1985, Underhand, Beat Down, Arctic, Flame, and Crowbar.
There is a bit of fallout with this palette, and some of the shades are quite chunky due to the glitter. If glitter isn’t your thing, you may want to skip this one.
Compared to the MUFE holiday palette, the formula is not as smooth, but that could be said of any UD/MUFE palette comparisons, quite honestly. This palette has a larger variety of colorful shades, so if you want something that is a better mix of both color and neutrals, the MUFE holiday palette is probably your best bet. That is not to say that you can’t achieve natural looks from the Vice 4. You can, but the whole purpose of a palette like this one (in my humble opinion) is to have fun with color.
I absolutely LOVE this palette and am glad that I purchased both the MUFE and Vice 4. They are very different from each other and both fantastic. 🙂
