I Got It: Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary Palette!!

Remember how I was debating over Urban Decay's new 15-Year Anniversary Palette? Well, after it sold out, I wanted it 100 times more. I know -I'm crazy. =P Since then, I've been on the phones with Sephora and Macy's nonstop and checking online retailers on a regular basis. Anyways, I found it at Sephora last night (they weren't on the shelves yet -I had to ask) and I couldn't be happier.

However, one thing that I absolutely HATE about it after only have examined it for 15 minutes? The packaging. I don't care what they say. Sure, the packaging could be revolutionary, original, and unique but to me, it's just a mess. It's basically made of a smoky mirror material -think H&M store mirrors (I believe most have these types of mirrors.) It's tacky, HIGHLY prone to fingerprints, and the lid doesn't even stay on properly. This is NOT ideal for traveling whatsoever. Yes, I understand it's more for "display" but I have way too many products to be putting everything out on display. I'd prefer if everything was neatly tucked away..

BUT, I am loving the shades. A review and swatches will definitely be up soon. I know I haven't been posting many reviews lately but this is priority #1.

 
Also, this week my bestie sent me a hand-made bracelet. Thought it matched the palette. =P

Have a lovely Saturday everyone. <33

  3. Oh boy! I would kill for that palette! When it gets in stores here in singapore it'd probably be limited with a few hundred pieces! Darn, those are beautiful colors! You're very lucky, use them wisely! hehe
