Urban Decay’s Feminine eyeshadow palette ($36, Ulta and UrbanDecay.com) is one of three new palettes (even though there was an earlier palette by this name, using the old formula and different colors) to be released this fall. It features 6 eyeshadows, all from the permanent collection, and a mini-lipgloss. Overall, the quality of the shadows is very good and the lip gloss is average.
The Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette is available exclusively at Sephora for $55. This pricing puts it in line with the Naked palettes, so I was expecting equal quality to those. In actuality, I found this palette to be equal or better. And you get a nice variety of both neutrals and colorful shadows, making it very flexible – I can’t count how many looks you could do with this palette.
At its initial price of $64, Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows IV may have seemed overpriced compared to some of their other palettes, especially if you had a chance to check out the shadows and noticed they’re not all quite as pigmented as we’ve come to expect from Urban Decay. Now that the price has been reduced to $29 (follow the link above and use the coupon code SEVENTEEN11), it feels like a much better bargain – even with its flaws. This palette contains sixteen eyeshadows, a fluid eyeliner in Perversion (black), a trial of Supercurl Curling Mascara, a trial of the Primer Potion… and a bunch of gadgets I doubt many people will have much use for.
I got the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette (eta: now available at Sephora) a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been playing with it ever since. I wanted to really get to know it before I reviewed it here.
I did not get my email notification from Urban Decay telling me to go order the Naked 2 palette now, but I happened to check the site, and it’s available. I just ordered mine.They only have 5,000 available this week, so order fast if you want it now.
