I'm still working on the new purchase posts that I definitely wanted to share this year, and this needed to be up before my idea for the last couple days of December can go up. So, as the title implies, I got another Urban Decay palette. I got this one toward the end of October. (I really hope that next year - can't believe that's next week! - I'll be able to stay on top of things better.)
So I ordered the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush:
ELF Studio Powder Brush that's flat-topped). I now alternate between this and the Real Techniques brush I showed here. It washes easily and dries fairly quickly (much faster than the ELF) and I haven't had any bristles shed. Lately after stippling then buffing on my foundation, I'll go back over and stipple on either more foundation or a little full-coverage concealer on the really red scars and it works wonderfully to cover them.
And I ordered the Vice Palette. I was going back and forth between which palette I wanted and decided to get the one with all new shades:
Outside of packaging box with shade names & about the palette
Outside of the palette - pretty jeweled letters & funky feeling box
Inside of the palette - the colors are fairly accurate
The palette lid stays open so this palette is actually a pretty good all-in-one -- mirror (I still need to peel the film off), both neutrals and colors, mixture of finishes, as well as a double-ended brush. This might be just the thing to take when traveling (especially if you can't park yourself in front of a mirror and/or need better light like by the window).
I've used several of the colors in here to create various eye looks, but I'm still not entirely sure what to do with that bright blue (Chaos) and bright pink (Noise).
Double ended eyeshadow brush that came inside the palette
My order also came with the typical Primer Potion foil packet card sample thing (clearly I have no idea what to call it) as well as the "Thank You" UD sticker and discount card for a future purchase.
Have you purchased the Vice palette? Love it or not so much?
