This palette was a lot more out of my comfort zone as it has actual colour!! not just browns, taupes and bronze but bright blues and pinks ...woah right!? - I just couldn't resist, it looks so pleasing to the eye and holds a whopping 20 colours.
I adore the way the Vice 3 is packaged, it has this bright watercolour effect going across the box, then it comes with a jazzy, matching makeup bag that fits the palette perfectly...with room for a lipstick and mascara.
The palette itself is quite large, square and made from sturdy plastic. The design on the front of it has the same vibrant water colour effect, but with a mirrored background and the word 'VICE' is embossed in a green, glass cut style plastic. I think it looks gorgeous and so unique to my other palettes.
Inside it has a huge, full sized mirror and double sided brush, the brush isn't the best, but I never expect too much from the brushes you get with palettes.
Considering how much out of my comfort zone it is, I actually haven't put it down since I got my hands on it. I love how versatile it is, there are so many eye looks you can create - for an everyday look I have been using the neutrals in the first left hand row , then if I'm feeling a little brave I will add a purple to the outer v and lower lash line, then smoke it out a bit.
I have yet to play with the pinks and blues (eeep!) but I do adore the more vibrant shades called Sonic, Bondage, Vanity and Brokedown.
The quality of these shadows are amazing, and each one is as highly pigmented as the other. You have your mix of cool tones, warm tones, shimmers and mattes. They have gorgeous soft texture and blend like a dream.

Do you have the Urban Decay Vice 3? Is this something you would use? Are you brave with bolder eye shadow colours? I would love to hear your thoughts.
