If you didn't see my first post about the Vice Palette covering the basics about the palette itself and the individual shades, you can find it here.
Each of these swatches was done with a Q-tip on bare skin.
On to the swatches:
|Left to right: Bust, Desperation, Pistol|
|Left to right: Twice Baked, Muse, Lost|
|Left to right: Cobra, Jagged, BM's Couture|
|Left to right: Half Baked, Blitz, BM's Pret-A-Porter|
When you compare Half Baked with Blitz, the bronze tone of it really comes out. I can also see the slight green-ish tone in Blitz that I mentioned in my previous post (am I completely crazy with this?). While Blitz is a really strong yellow-gold, it looks less-so compared with Pret-A-Porter, which is another shade from The September Issue palette.
|Left to right: Chopper, Penny Lane, TF's Copper Peony|
|Left to right: Hijack, Junkie, Deep End|
|Left to right: Gunmetal, Occupy, Ace|
|Left to right: Deep End, Unhinged, Haight|
|Left to right: Perversion, Black Market, Blackout|
|Left to right: Bordello, Provocateur, YDK|
|Left to right: Toasted, Rapture, Bordello|
|Left to right: Psychedelic Sister, Vice, Gravity|
|Left to right: Woodstock, Noise, Junkshow|
|Left to right: Pistol, Armor, TF's Nice Ash|
|Left to right: Nevermind, Suspect, Echo Beach, Verve|
|Left to right: Skimp, Anonymous, Foxy|
|Left to right: X, Freebird, Snatch|
|Left to right: Naked, Laced, Tease|
Some of the colors in the Vice Palette are easily dupeable and others are relatively unique. Like I said in my previous post, the people who are going to want to pick up the Vice Palette are going to be the hard-core Urban Decay collectors or those just starting out with their makeup collection. Those who already have several Urban Decay palettes who don't feel the need to have them all should be able to pass on this one without any regrets.
Are you passing on this one or picking it up? Are there any close shades that you can think to compare the Vice Palette shades to that I missed?
