Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette Review and makeup look x

It is here! The Gwen Stefani Palette is a beauty to behold and I thought I'd let you take a look and do swatches for you as well as 2 makeup looks. After having this palette for a few weeks now I have been able to give it a good and proper try out so I can let you know all my favourite shades. 

Firstly I bought my palette from feel unique. The RRP of this palette is £40 which to say the naked palettes are £38 each your only paying £2 more but you get 15 gorgeous shades to play with. I also managed to blag myself a 10% off code making mine £36 (cheaper than a naked palette).  Whats more if you spend over £30 on feel unique they give you 2 free samples and the palette comes with trial sizes of all the gwen stefani lipsticks which was a really nice addition. 

Lets get onto the packaging which is beautiful its gold reflective and just heavenly. It is a magnetic closure with a huge mirror and all the shades are named. 

Now for the swatches:
The shades are mainly neutrals with a few brights in there to brighten up your look. There is a mixture of mattes and shimmers so it really is the perfect palette. 

Here are all the swatches together...
All 15 shades

First Row: 
Left to Right: Blonde, Bathwater, Skimp, Steady, Punk
Row 2: 
Left to Right: Baby, Anaheim, Stark, Zone, Serious

Final Row: 
Left to Right: Pop, Harajuku, Danger, 1987, Blackout

I have got to say I do absolutely love the bottom row because the pigmentation is absolutely incredible however I'd probably say my most used shades would be Blonde, Bathwater, Steady, Punk,  Baby, Anaheim, Zone and Pop. There are so many great shades in this palette and its great for taking your makeup look from day to night. If you haven't already taken a look at this palette do, I'm even going to say it my favourite urban decay palette in my possession and thats a bold statement to make. 

Below are 2 makeup looks I created with the palette one being a bit more smokey and one a bit more fresh just showing that the palette can do so much.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you did make sure to like all my various social media platforms n stuff so you can be kept up to date with all my various goings on.

Until next time
