Fresh for holiday ’12 is Urban Decay’s latest (and greatest?) eye palette: Vice ($59, LE). I predict this will eventually become as iconic as the brand’s bestselling Naked palette. With a wide range of 20 previously-unreleased shades, this is a must-have for beauty addicts and eyeshadow collectors. It’s one stocking stuffer that any girl would be thrilled to receive–but it’s not likely you’ll be able to wait till December to give or get this beauty. Get the lowdown after the jump.
One quick note: this palette is limited edition, so it won’t be around forever! If you’re interested, grab it while you can, because these are sure to fly off shelves and online retailers superfast, just like all UD eye palettes.

Also included in the palette is a dual-ended shadow and crease brush. If you have the Naked or Naked2 palettes, this is the same style/quality brush. It’s much better than typical applicators that come packaged with palettes; this is one I use regularly as part of my basic brush collection. It’s a keeper.
What’s so nice about this palette, aside from the spectrum of colors, is that the shadows are high-quality (I would put them up against MAC shadows, which I consider to be the best, any day). They’re richly-pigmented, vibrant, and stay true to their color and finish; the ones that are matte stay matte, and the sparkly ones hold fast to their glitter. They wear well and resist creasing, fading, and smudging. Paired with UD’s famous Eyeshadow Primer Potion, these shadows are unstoppable. And there’s enough variety here to let you create a ton of looks, all from 1 compact.
The palette is available now online at Urban Decay. It hits Sephora, Ulta, and select Macy’s on Sept. 27, and will be released internationally in October 2012.
What do you think? Is this on your wishlist for the holidays–or will you be running out to buy it before it’s inevitably sold out everywhere?
