Urban Decay Haul!


Urban Decay is slowly becoming a new obsession of mine (at least the items on a good sale)!  Today I'm showing the couple of items I purchased from Urban Decay.  I placed this order on August 9, knowing that shipping was going to be delayed.  By the way, it was nice that U.D. warned you when placing orders that shipping was behind schedule on all the orders.  My order finally shipped on August 13 and I got it a few days later.

The Mister has been wanting me to come up with some dark eye looks so I used that as the perfect "excuse/reason" to order the Black Palette.  I thought at $16, it was a pretty darn good deal.

Black Dog (it's matte!), Barracuda, Jet
Sabbath, Cobra, Libertine
24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero 

It came with Mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden and another sticker(!)
I had also been eyeing the Starlight Glitter Body Art kit, going back and forth with myself on getting it or not...and I finally decided to go for it.  After all, when the Mister decides he wants something, he just orders it without debating with himself.  I got the kit for $6, which actually averages out to less than $1 an item.  Yet another pretty darn good deal.  Side note here: in storage we have lots of body stencils from when the Mister went around to local and county fairs and did air-brush tattoos, so I figured I could break those out again for smaller designs.

Came with 5 colors of glitter, Starlight Glitter Adhesive, a Fan Brush and 10 stencils (5 images)
Stencil images / Directions
(I wish that the stencils weren't single use...but that's what other stencils I have are for)

What was my little free sample? another Naked Skin foundation sample pack.  Hmmm....I wonder if that's enough for me to decide how much I like it or give me a good idea for shade (other than pale pinkie toned)

As of the time of writing this, both the Black palette and the Glitter Art set are still in stock at sale prices (along with other items) but since these items are being clearanced out, if you want them, don't wait.

I have to say, if the Naked palettes and the Smoked palette all weren't around $50 each, I would probably be picking them up one at a time...I do try to spread out the purchase of higher-costing items.

Do you have the Black Palette or the glitter art set?  Do you like them?
