Beauty | Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

I know I'm about 10 years behind with this one but I finally got round to using my Urban Decay Gwen Palette more and realized I have never mentioned it on the blog. So in case you haven't come across the fifty million other blog posts about it I thought I would do a run down of all the shades in it.

Before I get into the shades, let me point out the huge mirror you get in the palette (yes I still have the sticky bit on mine, sorry!). I love when palettes provide you with a decent size mirror as they are perfect if you ever take the palette on your travels. Anyway onto the shades...

Blonde - Pale beige with pink iridescent shift. Perfect for a base colour on the lid or to highlight with.
Bathwater - Pale beige with gold pearl. Another good colour as a base/highlight.
Skimp - Pale nude satin.
Steady - Medium rose with metallic gold shift. Possibly my favourite colour of them all.
Punk - Reddish brown matte. A great shade for a smokey look with a twist.
 Baby - Cool metallic rose. A pretty shade, especially when used wet.
Anaheim - Light taupe-brown matte. Perfect in the crease for a subtle smokey eye.
Stark - Nude-pink matte. Another base colour.
Zone - Medium brown matte. Good crease colour or on some skin tones a good transition colour.
Serious - Smokey grey with iridescent floating pearl. Perfect for deepening up a smokey eye.
Pop - Pale coral with iridescent sparkle. This will be nice for spring/summer.
Harajuku - Metallic blue-pink with iridescent micro-shimmer. A fun colour to liven up a simple look.
Danger - Deep metallic royal blue with blue micro-sparkle. Gorgeous blue for a navy smokey eye.
1987 - Bright metallic yellow-gold. One of the nicest golds I own.
Blackout - Blackest black matte. Every palette needs a good standard black right?

Do you own this palette? Which is your favourite shade?
