FINALLY. The wait is over, and those who have long lusted after Gwen Stefani's glamorous look need search no more. Her limited edition palette collaboration with Urban Decay is here, and it's every bit as wonderful as we had expected.
This beauty baby is the result of countless hours of creative brainstorming at Gwen's house, mulling over the particulars of every shade, texture and finish, as well as the gorgeous, one-of-a-kind case.
Here, fans can experiment with Gwen's 15 must-have shades: 3 are favourites of Gwen's from the original Urban Decay shadow collection while the remaining twelve are brand new.
Whether you keep it natural and neutral so that your red lip can make a statement, or you work with jewel tones to create a dramatic smokey eye, you couldn't yearn for anything more with this palette. In fact, we're a little bit devastated it's Limited Edition and won't be around forever, such is our enthusiasm for these shades. They're wearable, they're not unrealistic, and as you can always guarantee where Urban Decay is concerned, the pigment and pay-off is second to none. What's more, unlike other palettes in the UD range, you've got a good bit of mixture here. From the navy to the pink and the palette of gorgeous browns, the list of looks you can create are endless.
One decent shadow would easily set you back €20, but for just €46, you're getting 15 shades, all of which you are guaranteed to use (not often the case with palettes).
It won't be available ( in Debenhams and Hosue of Fraser Dundrum) until December 3rd, but you can sign up to the waiting list in store now to avoid disappointment. Mark our words, these bad boys WILL sell out.
