Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches
I was so incredibly excited about the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collaboration. Not only do I love Gwen, who doesn't? I also LOVE eyeshadow. Surprisingly the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette is Urban Decay's first celebrity collaboration and it didn't disappoint. The limited edition eyeshadow palette boasts a mix of daytime wearable and bright shimmery shades, so it was no surprise that over 5,000 people signed up to be notified of it's release (me being one of them!).
