I know I wasn’t too enthused when this Urban Decay Cosmetics Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette was initially announced and subsequently released in addition to the other makeup items included in this collaboration since I didn’t think that the shades looked complementary for those with dark skin like me, but I happened to see it in person and swatch it and the shades are really beautiful.
Still not enough for me to buy it since I still think at least half the shades may not work against my skin tone but at least seeing this palette in person helped me change my initial thoughts about it.
But for all those who want to try this Urban Decay Cosmetics Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette, this palette is currently on sale at ULTA, Sephora, Nordstrom and Macy’s for $39 which is significantly reduced from its usual price of $58!
UD carefully crafted the shadows with Gwen, filling a void by creating the exact shades she always wished she had in her collection. In the end, they loaded this palette with her 15 must-have shades of Eyeshadow (12 are NEW, and three are from the UD shadow collection). With an insane range of neutrals and a few jewel tones to mix things up, this is Gwen’s go-to kit to achieve her most iconic looks. And with these shades in your arsenal, you’ll have everything you need to recreate these signature looks for yourself.
Gwen had a hand in everything, including the case, which was inspired by her love of black-and-white graphic prints and antique gold accents. She also handpicked most of the shade names, which were inspired by her songs. There’s even a nod to the No Doubt song “Magic’s in the Makeup” on the palette’s huge mirror.
Each Eyeshadow in this palette features UD’s Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.
