I mentioned earlier in June that Urban Decay was releasing yet another Book of Shadows palette. I was excited for the first 2 Book of Shadows and the Alice one but now, I'm pretty sick of them -I think it has to do with the fact that they seem to come out with a new one so often that they just don't feel "special" anymore. I was sort of psyched for it at first but after seeing the shades, Vol. 3 (to me) just looks like a re-run of the previous Book of Shadows palettes and other UD palettes. I've sold both my Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 Book of Shadows palettes and only keep my Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows because it's well -Alice. Honestly, I've used it a total of only 2 or 3 times!
It's not that I don't like Urban Decay eyeshadows -they're just usually too colorful or glittery for me (yes, my daily looks tend to consist of boring neutrals.) I am however getting the NAKED palette -well, my boyfriend's buying it for me. They STILL haven't gotten the shipment in for the NAKED palettes and we pre-saled about 3 weeks ago. Looks like every store is out of the palettes pretty much. (I also got an email from Urban Decay telling me that I could be added to "the list" for when they get more but it's only 1 palette per customer.)
So anyways, are you getting the palette? Or are you skipping it for something else?

I just got my Naked palette a week ago and I'm in love with it. I adore bold colors but not on my face....lol.ReplyDelete

I love the lok of this b/c NYC is one of my favorite places in the world, but those colors! Where would I wear them?!ReplyDelete
It looks pretty amazing but I'm not that big on palettes, and for the cost I could get a collection of just-as-bright loose eyeshadows, which I prefer :) Besides, I already have the eyeliners that come with it.ReplyDelete
Nope never bought Book of Shadows or will I buy one. I'm still on the fence about Naked Palette as well.ReplyDelete
I don't have any of the book of shadows! I'm really not that familiar with them to be honest.. but I think those colors look so pretty and fun! I really like a few of them actually! Too bad that's wayy out of my price range. hahaReplyDelete
I wanted the naked palette so badly but I found out that sephora and urban decay do't do shipping to my country :(ReplyDelete
@ Tara.. I can't wait for my NAKED palette to come in! I really want to test it out to see what all the fuss is about. And I too like bold colors -just not when it comes to MY own makeup. =)ReplyDelete
@ PoorCollegeStudent.. I love the cute popups too -but hate the heavy, bulky packaging. I agree about the colors -I'm more of a "natural" gal.
@ Simone.. Yupp definitely save for some loose shadows since you prefer those. And I LOVE palettes.
@ Kristie.. The main reason I want the NAKED palette is because it's an amazing value. Plus I'm into neutrals.. I've never really been into UD shadows because of the glitter overload but I have real high hopes for the NAKED Palette.
@ Jen.. Hmm, maybe you can try some of the more colorful NYX or Milani shadows since you like these shades. They're cheaper and I have tried some good shadows from both brands.
@ alvira.. Aww that's a real bummer. =( It's been really difficult to get here in the U.S. actually since it keeps selling out! Do you know anyone from the U.S. or another country that they ship to? Maybe you can have them send it over?

Well can't do anything so I will get some other neutral palette actually I am not obsessed about makeup if I like any particular product and I can get it, it's good otherwise I will buy something elseReplyDelete
I sometimes wish I wasn't obsessed! It would really help my wallet. Hopefully you can find another great neutral palette -there are so many of them out there.ReplyDelete
