About Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette
From vintage shades that go WAY back (like Gash, Acid Rain and UV-B) to must-haves from UD’s current collection, it’s all here. There are even a few new shades and several cult favorites from past palettes. With a carefully crafted mix of new shades and old favorites, Vice Ltd Reloaded is the perfect representation of 20 years of UD. Experiment with color, go for a little smoke or play it neutral. UD included three totally NEW shades, five vintage shades, five exclusives from past palettes (like Vice, Vice Ltd and Book of Shadows Vol II), and seven bestsellers from their collection of singles. The kind of palette anybody can use, UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded offers something for everyone. And this is the first time several of these shades have been available in UD’s revamped shadow formula! Each Eyeshadow in this limited-edition palette features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette Gash Look Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette Gash Look

The look I put together with the palette. I used Anonymous as the base, Gash on the hood, outer lid, outer lower lid, Laced to blend out the edges of Gash, Midnight  Cowboy on the inner lid and inner v, Moonflower on the inner lower lid, Oil Slick mixed with 501 for the roots of the lower lashes, Prank (UD Spectrum) for the roots of the upper lashes and Ofra You Glow Girl Highlighter to highlight at the inner corner and under the brows. (You Glow Girl highlighter looks terrible on me, but that’s another story).

Some color combos I see with the palette

  • Acid Rain, Mildew, Misdemeanor, Oil Slick
  • Midnight Cowboy, Moonflower, Smog, Twice Baked
  • UV-B, 501
  • Hot Pants, Asphyxia, Freakshow, 501
  • Shallow, Suspend
  • Midnight Cowboy, Gash, Laced, Anonymous

Overall, I’m happy with this palette. While Acid Rain and Asphyxia had poor color payoff for me, and UV-B was on the sheer side, I liked the rest of the shades. I’m especially in love with Gash, Shallow, Moonflower, Roadstripe, 501, Suspend, Laced and Anonymous.

I find Anonymous, Laced and Suspend to be especially useful matte shades for my skintone. I love Roadstripe as a highlighter. Anonymous is a great base shade for me. Laced is perfect to blend out the edges of other colors. Suspend works to deepen the crease. Oil Slick works as a liner or accent.

What do you think of the Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette?



  • Yes, this is another gorgeous palette from UD, yes for Gash and Smog-I would try Smog over black like you suggested! Thumbs up on your thorough swatches and descriptions.

  • OMGASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!♡ I loveee your eye look!!! Wow there are lots of beauties in this palette! LOVE Hotpants, Roadstripe, Moonflower, Shallow, and Gash! Midnight Cowboy looks great in the new formula (I have that fallout bomb in BoS 1 and remember that big chunky silver glitter, hehe…good times). Smog is amazing but…I literally have like, 10+ pans of Smog. XD I guess it needs to be here to represent just like Oil Slick. Ahhh…*memories* I’m surprised Roach isn’t in here.

    But the purples…*sigh* I was hoping Asphyxia would be radioactively glowing in the new formula when I saw the pan. And Freakshow…I have the single of that and will never part with it. ITA, the original is the best. UV-B reminds me a little of an old favorite, Ransom, but it’s more blue and more sheer. I wish all three of these had mega-pigmentation and super glow happening… Acid Rain too – I was hoping for some serious gilded chartreuse.

    The mattes are so nice!!! Laced is…perfection. Anonymous is solid – I need at least one cream matte in a big palette and this is a really pretty one. I really love Suspend – it’s just right for the crease!!! Hmmm…I’m gonna have to have a think on this one. It’s a beautiful palette.

    • The UD Spectrum palette is now available at Sephora! If you were waiting for that one you should grab it now! Yeah this Anniversary palette is gorgeous! The purples are ok, but not as good at the original!

  • I thought I would love the colours in this palette, but sadly – apart from Mildew, I don’t. Lots of the shades are too pink/purple/yellow or matte for me. However I can see how you would love these colours – they really do suit you. Just love your eye look.

  • They just need to go ahead and bring back Roadstripe as a permanent color. It was a best-seller when it was available originally, and they need more whitish shades!!

  • I have so much from Urban Decay that the colors I like would probably be in some of my other palettes. There are a few that are really standouts though.

  • This palette has a bit of everything. I love how red based shadows look on you, not so much on myself.

  • This looks like a better thought-out colour selection than the last two vice palettes – there are a lot of complementary shades, every colour seems to have a few good “partners”, and there are some nice neutral mattes, so for me this would work as a stand-alone palette. As long as it’s not a total glitter bomb I can see myself purchasing this if it gets released in Australia.

  • So many beautiful colors! UD rarely disappoints 🙂 I don’t think I’ll be picking it up mostly because I gravitate towards neutrals and I already got plenty of those, but I definitely see the artistic value in that variety.

  • This is the first of any of the UD Vice palettes that I felt the need to buy. I honestly only bought it for Gash but I find that this has some nice unique shades in it.

  • I think it’s a great anniversary palette. Those rather unusual greens are beautiful. I loved your video and your look with this palette.

  • I couldn’t resist this palette. I really like it, and I think it’s full of fun colors. I wish they had organized it a little differently, though – maybe putting the mattes in one section, or the lighter colors together. It’s such a mish-mash! But I’m glad I bought it. What a neat way for someone like me to get to try the earlier colors I missed out on!

  • Your eye look is stunning (as always). Love how much time and love you put into your reviews, swatches, and pictures.

  • I’ll be at Ulta on Sunday morning to snag this. It has so many shades I don’t have already. I’m bummed about Asphyxia and Acid Rain aren’t so great. Gash, though…YES! I love your background. It reminds me of dragon scales.
