Urban Decay shopping haul
I went for the 15 year anniversary palette - not completely new, but it has a good range of colours and I could use them for all the different events in the run up to the wedding. Plus I could do my sisters' makeup if need be too. I loved the velvety texture of the colours and my favourite has got to be the teal - it is so pigmented! And how gorgeous is the jewelled box?! It can double up as a jewellery box when you are finished with it and take out the palette section.
I opted for a pearly primer because I have heard so many good things about it, and then was on the lookout for some eyeshadow shading brushes. The assistant showed me a few and I chose a couple from them, but (and this is probably down to her great sales technique) she told me if I paid a little more I could have the same exact two brushes in a double-ended brush but in the Naked 2 palette. Well, who am I to argue?! I have wanted to get my hands on it for ages but couldn't justify it. My older sister loved it so much when I later showed it to her that she went back the next day and bought the same two palettes, and my mum has her eye on them too.
Probably because I spent so much the sales assistant threw in the purple eyeshadow for free. Well, the whole lot did set me back about £80 - though if I compared the amount I did end up with, I much preferred that to the build your own palette.
Do you have any of the above? What are your recommendations?
