UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded is Actually Pretty Cool

I’ve expressed my boredom with the litany of Vice Palettes from Urban Decay, but I’m actually excited about their newest one, UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded.

UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded celebrates Urban Decay’s twenty (…what?!) years in the industry, and features a mix of vintage (read: discontinued shades that people pine for), bestselling, and new shadows. Check it out:

Of course, stock photos never do products justice. Regrettably, I don’t have one (and probably won’t be able to get my mitts on it) – but there are some sneak peaks from people who have already secured one or gotten a PR kit.

The $56 Ulta-exclusive UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded features three new shades, five vintage shades (Gash!), five previous Vice-exclusives, and seven bestsellers (like Smog, Midnight Cowboy, Twice Baked).

The full complement of shades, according to Ulta’s site:

Shades included:

  • Suspend (greige-brown matte)
  • Oil Slick (black matte w/silver micro-glitter)
  • Roadstripe (iridescent white w/blue-violet shift)
  • Gash (metallic brick red)
  • Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne shimmer w/ silver glitter)
  • 501 (deep metallic blue w/copper micro-glitter)
  • Shallow (pale taupe-silver satin)
  • Laced (pinky-taupe matte)
  • Hot Pants (pearly medium pink)
  • Mildew (deep metallic green shimmer)
  • Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer)
  • Misdemeanor (deep olive green matte w/green micro-shimmer)
  • Freakshow (bright purple satin)
  • Asphyxia (hyacinth shimmer w/blue shift)
  • Acid Rain (pale yellow-green shimmer w/green shift)
  • Moonflower (metallic rose-gold w/gold micro-shimmer)
  • UV-B (bright blue w/violet shift)
  • Goldmine (bright metallic gold)
  • Twice Baked (rich brown satin w/gold micro-glitter)
  • Anonymous (pale peachy cream matte)

I’m on a no-buy right now so I will not be picking UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded up (and even though it’s a cool palette, I think a lot of the colors wouldn’t do much for me, personally) but with the resurrection of old shades and re-release of other Vice Palette exclusives, I think this one is both a great value for Vice fans and an appropriate celebration of Urban Decay’s tenure in the industry.
