Now they finally are releasing the palette. I created video so you could see the colors in action. The Vice 3 palette is part of Urban Decay’s Holiday 2014 collection.

My Thoughts on the Vice 3 Palette
The packaging is cool. I love the chartreuse back. I love how chartreuse Vice is raised in the cut gem style on the front. It’s definitely the brightest, most unusual packaging that I’ve seen from Urban Decay.
The Vice 3 palette contains .60 oz of eyeshadow (.03 oz each x 20). A typical Urban Decay eyeshadow single is $18 for .05 oz. For .6 oz of product, that’s 12 full size eyeshadows, which would cost you $216. Instead of 12 full size, you’re getting 20 (slightly more than half sized) shades. The brush is probably valued at around $20, since that’s what the Naked Basics Double Ended brush sells for. So for $60 you’re getting a great deal, in my opinion.
Aside from a few of the shades being powdery, I liked the formula of the colors. While I felt like there were more neutrals and taupes than necessary, the brights more than make up for it. I am surprised that there’s not a teal blue in the palette. I do wish that Revolver was a blue black. I’m in love with Alien, Alchemy and Bondage. Dragon, Freeze, Heroine, Vanity, Bobby Dazzle and Last Sin are pretty. I think I could love Sonic for a Fall look, especially if paired up with Lucky.
I’ll be taking this palette on my trip with me. I can’t wait to create looks with it!
