Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette Swatches!

I don’t know if it’s just me but I love Gwen. I was born in 1987 and growing up in the 90s meant that for me, No Doubt was everything. I remember having a portable cassette player listening to Tragic Kingdom. Religiously. I just love her and growing up while she evolved into her own was awesome. Okay, now that I’m done reminiscing and fan girling, let’s check out the palette.

The palette is in a hard casing and has a really simple and nice design.
Here’s the back of the palette. It doesn’t have the shades listed because there 15 of them but you can find the serial number on the back.
And here’s the inside. There’s a decent sized mirror! There are 15 shades that are buttery in texture and are a good mix of shimmer and matte shades. There are three fun colors that shy away from nudes and I wish there was more but it does not make it a bad palette in any measure.

I did the swatches for you in rows of five going across.

This row has a bunch of nudes that have a shimmer. Blonde is beautiful because it has a really pretty pink shine to it. Bathwater is a really nice shimmer, comparable to a highlight and Skimp is more matte. Steady is a rose gold shimmer and Punk being the darkest shade in the row is a dark reddish-brown. Punk also swatched better on the brush than the finger.
The second row is where you’ll find the majority of the matte shades. Baby is a shimmer which swatched beautifully. Anaheim and Zone great brown shades while Stark matched my skin. I apologize for that. Serious is a black shade with some purple sparkle in it.
This is the last row. There’s a lot of fun colors and shimmer shades here also. Pop is a cute shade, but so close to the others that you’ve seen above. Harajuku is a beautiful shimmery pink. Danger is my favorite because in the light, it changes shades from black to a navy blue. 1987 is an amazing gold shimmer. Seriously amazing for a gold. Buttery, swatched great, and wasn’t patchy! Blackout is just a matte black with no shimmer or glitter in it.

I know a lot of people were disappointed in this palette because they wanted more color. I can completely relate to that because when I think of Gwen, I think of punk influence and bohemian colors. That doesn’t make it a palette that isn’t deserving of a great review. I think as a good neutral tone palette, this is seriously underrated.
