Right before the holidays I start to get into makeup big time. I imagine myself looking fresh and festive for every holiday party I have to attend. Since I just had a baby and am sleeping very little, it is a feat indeed. I have my work cut out for me this year.
While I admit I am intrigued by the massive makeup sets one can find at Sephora, I don't have room for a giant box of 100 shadows, 10 of which I will use. So I was won over by my new Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II. Why? Of the 16 eye shadows, there are only 4 I don't love/use. That's a minor miracle.
Just in time for the holidays this kit is jam packed with 16 shadows (including 8 exclusive to this set), 2 travel size 24/7 Eye Pencils in Zero and Bourbon, and a mini genie bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion. The mix of shadows includes shimmers and glitters, neutrals and brights. You now have every holiday party (day or night) covered.
NEW/exclusive shades: AC/DC (deep eggplant shimmer), Nylon (champagne sparkler), Mushroom (taupey-gunmetal), Sphynx (pink sparkle/shimmer), Jinx (bright blue shimmer), Homegrown (bright green shimmer), Misdemeanor (deep teal sparkle), and Perversion (matte black).
Existing/best-selling shades: Sellout, Gunmetal, Ecstasy, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside and YDK.
