Urban Decay Haul!


Today I'm sharing my most recent order from Urban Decay!  I normally don't order very much at a time, but this order was an exception.  This time, I stuck 3 things in my cart and one of those was composed of several mystery samples...and then of course, the normal sample that comes with orders.  Links to each product on Urban Decay's website are somewhere around the appropriate pictures...
~~~~PIC HEAVY!!!!~~~~~
So, the first thing that I ordered was Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette.  This is the first palette I have from that particular line - yes, you read correctly.  I do not own the original Naked palette, nor do I own the Naked 2 palette.  Maybe someday, but right now, no.  I wanted to get this one since matte eyeshadow formulas are not the easiest thing to come across in drugstore lines.  (If you don't want to order online, Sephora & Ulta should be getting this in soon if it isn't already there.)

Venus, Foxy, Walk of Shame (W.O.S.), Naked 2, Faint, Crave
The only thing I'm not crazy about is how hard it is to open...

The next thing that I wanted to get was the "mystery bag" that was advertised as having approximately $45 worth of samples for $16.  The bag came with 2 new-to-me items along with some other things that I already have sample sizes of from previous orders.  P.S. the bag is a nice sturdy reusable material that is currently residing with extra makeup bags for the rare occasion I travel.

Mini bottle of All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Mini U.D. Supercurl Curling Mascara
Mini U.D. 24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencil in Rehab (1st time getting)
~FULL size~ U.D. Lip Junkie in Naked (1st time getting)  The pic is deceiving but it is full-sized

By the time that I added these 2 items to the shopping cart, I was within a few dollars of getting free shipping so I figured that I might as well add one more thing and pay for an item rather than shipping.  First I was just going to get an eyeshadow single that was in the sale section, but then I applied a $5 off coupon that they send with every order it seems, so I was still going to have to pay shipping.  So I decided that instead of the single, I would add another palette - Deluxe Shadow Box - and get all of the deluxe shadows for around the price of 2 of them.  (As of posting this, this particular palette is still available in the sale section.)
That silver-y mesh stuff is an interesting thing to touch - it moves!
Deluxe Shadow Box
Fishnet, Honey, Ransom
Graffiti, Zero, Peace
Shag, Scratch, Underground

And for the little freebie sample that's included with all orders, I got a yet-to-be-released sample of Urban Decay's new BB cream.
I like that there was lots of information included with this little sample.  It actually states on the cardboard: "For best results, apply Naked Skin Beauty Balm first and let dry.  Then buff on Naked Skin Liquid Makeup..."  It states the "universal shade glides on and dries down to a translucent, demi-matte finish that works on most skin tones."

Lots of new goodies to play with!

What's your favorite product from Urban Decay?  Are you looking forward to trying U.D.'s version of BB cream?
