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.

What’s better than an eyeshadow palette? An eyeshadow palette that does not break the bank! Apart from doing a top 5 drugstore favorites, I thought we could also have a close look at some super affordable eyeshadow palettes and talk about those. The reason why these didn’t make it into my original top 5 is because I like spending a little bit more on my shadows as I feel they perform better. However, if you’re on a budget there are still some great palettes out there as well.

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.

If there is one eyeshadow palette brand that I love it would be Urban Decay. I have been collecting their palettes for some years now and so I have built up quite the collection. Since I don’t want to make my full palette collection video super long, I decided to break it up into a few brands and today’s turn is for Urban Decay.

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.
