O-M-G, Gwen Stefani and Urban Decay have only gone and launched an *amazing* eyeshadow palette just before Christmas. The 46 year old music star is renowned for her bold makeup choices and beauty transformations. Over the years we’ve seen her rock a classic blonde hairdo and red lips, and experiment with super fun eyeshadow colours. And now, her collaboration with Urban Decay hasn’t disappointed.
So, what’s in the palette? 15 eyeshadow shades handpicked by the lovely Gwen. We’ll be honest, we expected loads of bright colours, but to our surprise, the palette has the perfect mix wearable daytime and nighttime shimmer shades. Plus, it’s pretty cool to note that all of the eyeshadows names were inspired by her songs.
Speaking about the neutral shades in the palettte, Gwen told TotalBeauty.com: “I chose them because they’re the colors I wear. I can’t really get away with [crazy colors]. I can if I have a makeup artist, a photographer and lighting. But not in real life; I want to make stuff for real life. I want to be able to take that on the plane, and that’s it.”
We had the pleasure of testing out the palette – yay! Some of our fave colours include Danger, a shimmering navy hue, 1987, a gorgeous gold glitter, and Pop, a perfect peach tone.
And not only does the palette have a stunning array of colours, but it’s encased in a sleek gold, white and black packaging. Although it’s probably not small enough to pop into your handbag, we think it’s definitely a staple for your makeup bag at home.
On sale nationally from the 2nd of December, you’ll have to act fast if you want one of these palettes because they’re really in demand. They are currently sold out and there is already an online and in-store waiting list of 5,000 people! You can get on the waiting list by signing up at here.
