I assume you have already read reviews and seen swatches of the most-anticipated eyeshadow from Urban Decay many times or better yet, you already own Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. Oh how I love to give you the latest scoop by purchasing it the moment it came out but blame the uber-slow shipping of Urban Decay because this beauty only arrived few days ago. But is it a yay as most makeup lovers say or nay? Scroll down for more photos, details and my overall thoughts.

Packaging-wise, the-pop-rock-glam vibe truly bespeaks Gwen (yeah we’re first name basis like that, haha!). You can tell she did an excellent job collaborating down to the minutest detail. The gold and white criss-cross pattern on the box is as ravishing as the black polka-dot and gold in the actual casing. The burnished embossed name on the lower right is a nifty addition. The whole palette itself has heft, magnetic closure and ginormous mirror.

This palette is cool-toned which is definitely made for Gwen or women bearing the same pale to fair skin color. There are 15 eyeshadows: 5 mattes, 6 satins, 4 metallics. A quick glance shows you that the eyeshadows are predominantly neutral, which for the most part are dupe-able or strikingly similar to Urban Decay’s other naked’s. With the exception of Harajuku, Danger and 1987, I’m wild-guessing you already own ’em. But see, it is Gwen. Don’t Speak. Hollaback Girl. Baby Don’t Lie. You still want this because it is from The Great Gwen.

All the mattes are fairly pigmented and blend effortlessly. The satins are phenomenal. Except for Pop which is complete fallout party, the rest of the metallics are luxurious as Gwen’s hit songs. Worn over eye primer, these eyeshadows didn’t budge or melt all through ten hours of moi rocking ’em. Overall, whether you’re a fan of Gwen or just simply looking for a palette regardless if it’s cool or warm to treat yourself with this Christmas, I say go get it.

For my eye makeup below, I used 1987 on eyelids, Anaheim on crease, Punk on outer eye corner and Blackout on brows. The lipstick is also from Urban Decay Matte Revolution (Carnal).
