My current obsession is this Urban Decay Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. I don’t know what it is about Urban Decay, but their eyeshadow palettes get me every time (well maybe it’s because the pigment, staying power and colour is always spot on)! Since the launch of this limited edition palette in December, I’ve really enjoyed playing around with this perfect mix of neutrals, shimmers and intense hues.
According to Urban Decay, this palette is a true collaboration between Gwen Stefani and Urban Decay.
We spent countless hours at Gwen’s house, talking makeup and working with her on filling a void by creating the exact shades she always wished she had in her collection.
From the detailed graphic print and antique accents on the case to the handpicked shade names – this palette definitely speaks Gwen Stefani.
Blonde (because Gwen is): Pale beige with pink iridescent shift
Bathwater (a No Doubt song): Pale beige with gold pearl
Skimp (a favourite of Gwen’s from UD line): Pale nude satin
Steady (after the No Doubt album “Rock Steady”): medium rose with metallic gold shift
Punk (the music genre Gwen got started in): reddish brown matte
Baby (an home to her fashion line L.A.M.B): cool metallic rose
Anaheim (where Gwen grew up): light taupe-brown matte
Stark (another of Gwen’s favourite shades): nude pink matte
Zone (after the song “Danger Zone”): medium brown matte
Serious (another of Gwen’s songs): smoky grey with iridescent floating pearl
Pop (like her current music): pale coral with iridescent sparkle
Harajuku (one of her style influences): metallic blue pink with iridescent micro shimmer
Danger (because we like a little danger): Deep metallic royal blue with blue micro-sparkle
1987 (the year No Doubt formed): bright metallic yellow gold
Blackout (Gwen’s favourite black shade): blackest black matte
