Having said that, Urban Decay Gwen Eyeshadow Palette is everything I would have imagined Gwen to include in a palette. The colors are very pretty, with lots of versatile matte shades. There are 15 shades in all, which are all very pigmented, smooth and apply well. They also have amazing staying power - even without a eye shadow primer, which is a big plus. This palette does not come with a brush, so I recommend it for home use with an inspiring brush set like this one.
It's nice to also know Gwen Stefani had a hand in everything, including the case, which was inspired by her love of black-and-white graphic prints and antique gold accents. She also handpicked most of the shade names, which were inspired by her songs.
Urban Decay Gwen Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition set I wouldn't wait too long to pick up for that beauty lover in my life! - RLB
