Urban Decay Stoned Vibes Eye Shadow Palette | Review and Swatches

Just in time for the holiday season Urban Decay has released a glamorous new palette inspired by vibrant, glittering gemstones.
The packaging has a multi-colored jewel motif and inside there are 4 mattes and 8 mood-shifting, marbleized, prismatic shimmers infused with genuine tourmaline to block bad energy and promote good vibes. 
These vegan shadows have a bold, knock-out chrome finish that is festive and fun. The speckled metallic flecks embedded within the pigments give each shade a unique multidimensional effect. 

Overall the color payoff is prominent and the texture is smooth, dense and velvety. The shades with the best saturation are: Jade, Opal Aura, Tiger’s Eye, Vibes, Ojo and Bloodstone. The only color that doesn’t make the cut is Raw Energy. It looks like a deep, radiant purple but shows up as a sheer lavender-grey.
When I first opened this palette I knew there would be a bit of fallout. Some shades are a little messier than others but it shouldn’t be a problem if you use a good primer (glitter or cream) and apply it immediately before the shadow (while the base is still tacky). If you utilize this method, the shimmer should stay in place with minimal lid to crease transfer. 

The cruelty-free double-ended brush is good quality. Spritz the flat end with UD All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and swipe on in a firm, fluid motion. The fluffy end blends crease colors seamlessly.
If you like beautiful, brilliant, shadows that make your eyes pop, this palette is a great addition to your collection.
Urban Decay is available online at, free-standing stores, Sephora and Ulta Beauty.
