Everything she does, she does well, from her solo career to her fashion line to the classy way she has moved on from former husband Gavin Rossdale to new love Blake Shelton. So it's no wonder that the new Urban Decay|Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette is done perfectly. Psst... a little birdy told us that this isn't the end of the collaboration and that more makeup (our lips are sealed as to what exactly) will be dropped soon. Meanwhile, here are three things that put this palette at the top of our lust list.
With a polka dotted case that cleverly mimics an eyeshadow pan, this palette is sleek, modern and classy. Stefani herself gave her input to the design — she loves graphic, black-and-white elements and vintage gold accents. Embossed on the mirror is the phrase 'Magic's in the Makeup' a reference to a No Doubt song.
Open it up and you'll be surprised to find wearable shades of beige, pale browns and other neutrals that are exactly the colours that Stefani uses for her stage performances and red carpet appearances. While she's big on bold lips, notice how her eyes are usually in neutrals with the occasional pops of colour? 12 of the eyeshadow shades are brand new, while three are iconic Urban Decay shades that Gwen herself loves and uses — Blackout, Skimp and Stark.
The names of the eyeshadow colours
What's a cool palette without some memorable, Stefani-appointed names? The 12 original shades all hold a special meaning whether it's Bathwater (tell us you know why) to 1987 (the year No Doubt was formed) to Steady (a reference to No Doubt's Rock Steady album) to Anaheim (the city she grew up in). We love that after all these years, Stefani still holds her band and her roots close to her heart.
$85. At Urban Decay stores and Sephora outlets on 17 December
