The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette is a true inspiration to play so I'm sure this won't be the first look I share featuring these beautiful eyeshadows.

The palette features a dimensional web of facets that shift in colour thanks to an oil slick effect metallic finish. It is so freakin cool. It comes with a zippered makeup bag that you can store the palette in, or use separately, that has
