The Urban Decay Vice palettes are legendary if you ask me, so then why didn’t I get around to reviewing the third palette in the series yet? Well, this palette has quite the story attached to it of me first not wanting to get it. Then I decided I did want one and they were of course impossible to find. I ended up tracking it down and nearly a year after this was released, I finally got it. By that time, doing a review seemed pointless. Yet, because I love Urban Decay and because the Vice 3 is my favorite out of the bunch, I couldn’t pass up on sharing this beautiful palette with you.

It is a sad, sad day for makeup when one of your favorite palettes is discontinued. That is what happened with this Sleek eyeshadow palette. Lately, Sleek seems to have been discontinuing many of their I-Divine palettes and out of all of them, I am saddest seeing this one go. Garden of Eden is a great little palette if you love your greens.

If there is one brand that is heavily underrated, it is The Balm. All of the products I have tried by them are great, including their eyeshadow palettes. Whether it is a matte palette, or one in their Nude range, I have liked every single palette by The Balm so far. What do I think of Nude Beach?

When I spotted Essence came out with a build it your own palette, I got excited. Essence is a super affordable brand and if this panned out, it could be one of those rare drugstore gems. This palette doesn’t have to be just eyeshadows: the My Must Haves range includes lipsticks, blush, powder and even a bronzer. So you could build a palette that could do most of your face in one go.

Make Up Forever is one of those brands I always hear people talking about, but I haven’t tried many of their products myself. I love their Profusion Bronzer, but I hadn’t tried many of their eyeshadows yet. So of course I had to try some. I found this limited edition palette at Sephora one time so I could try out their formula. While the palette is limited edition, all the shades in this palette are from their regular line and can be bought as individuals.

Make Up Geek do some amazing single eyeshadows. I already did a dedicated video to how I build my palette and the swatches of these shadows last year. But I never showed any looks that I did with these shadows. Not that I didn’t take any pictures though, I took plenty and today is the day on which I share all the looks I did with this palette.

Let’s talk about an iconic palette for a minute shall we? The Lorac Pro palettes are infamous as much as they are famous. I already reviewed the Lorac Pro 2 and Lorac Pro 3 palettes previously. Out of the three, this has my least favorite color scheme. This is quite warm toned and smokey, and we all know how I feel about that.
