The Brown Box
Finally, I got home from school and a brown box encased in a plastic clear bag was waiting for me by the door!
I was really excited because I knew that my Sephora order finally came! I only got one thing and it was the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 3 (BOS 3). Available at Sephora.com for $54.
The colors are beautiful and vibrant and completely exceeded my expectations. Personally, I think these colors are perfect for fall because not only does it come with neutral colors but you have a choice of adding a pop of blue, green or purple. The colors are not too overpowering and definitely not intimidating. The only color that I would have preferred to be omitted from this palette is Uzi because to me it's too glittery and gives you lots of fall outs when used. Aside from that the rest of the eye shadows have either frost/metallic finishes (with the exception of one matte which is Perversion). BOS 3 also comes with two 24/7 Glide On eye pencils in Ransom and Zero, along with a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion to boot! Personally, I think it's a sweeter deal to get eye liners rather than eye makeup brushes/applicators.
swatches for this palette that are available online as well as videos on Youtube.
On another note, I am trying to do a "project 10 pan" which is basically a plan to use up 10 things (any beauty related product) before you make any future purchases. Some of the things, I've hit pan on are makeup removers, eye liners, mac msf, and a couple of face products. I know that's not exactly 10 but I'm almost done with a few other products and just didn't feel like waiting for this palette to get sold out again, so I just went ahead and made the purchase. Plus, I think that this purchase has become an incentive to keep going with my project 10 pan plan. =P
