Omg you guys I have wanted this palette soooo long and now I have it :)))
here a few pictures...
How cute is the packaging?!
Its wasn't obvious to me in videos that the palette in actually like a velour type material and the letters are embossed in a kind of gold leatherette.. it's so cute and looks really luxe.. just hope I can keep it looking nice and not bust it up like most things I have... fingers crossed!
How gorgeous is this palette?! I mean reeeaally gorgoeus!
I wanted to post swatches on here, I think it's easier to see on my blog than on a video.. you can really see them all against the shades on the palette and against each other.
Right now I'm favouring sidecar and smogged as a cute bronze smokey combo but I know naked and buck will maked their way into every day eye rotation and LOVE half baked... it's maybe the prettiest colour in the palette.
Toasted is a really nice rose gold kina colour and gunmetal is really different, it's a matte glitter which I've not come across before, there's no shimmer in the powder at all!
I have come across the fallout problem that many people report with Urband Decay shadows because of how dense and packed with glitter they are ... but I'm sure using the primer and a shadow shaper will fix that. It's probably something I'll perfect over time. In the mean time I will be staying away from super glittery shadows for work when I don't have time to redo my base LOL.
So let me know what you guys think and if you have it yourself let me know your first thoughts, what are your favourite combos etc? I'd love to hear from you, also check out my Urban Decay NYC book of shadows III blog post and video.. in all honesty I don't now which palette I was more excited about but friday night.. I was a LUCKY GIRL!! :D x
