Urban Decay Must Haves for Fall

Alright it's almost fall and as new season comes, means new makeup products coming out in the market woo hoo! :) I have been procrastinating about writing an entry about new cool products that Urban Decay released, so before it's too late... I better do it NOW. LOL

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Professional Size (Limited Edition)
Finally Urban Decay listened to makeup artists and their fans' request! They released their popular eye primer potion in professional tube packaging. ;) Also, it is 150% more product than their original bottle.

This is really great specially for makeup artists since it is more hygienic and also faster to apply. What most people will love about this product is you can use it til the last drop! :) So no more dissecting the bottle days just to get all the product in the bottle :D

I am a bit disappointed to know though that this is only limited edition :( I just don't get it. This is will be more practical for makeup artists to use so why discontinue the product? I wish they reconsider and make this available forever.

This product retails for $29.

Naked Palette
THIS is how Urban Decay does neutral! Not like other neutral palette composed of boring beige shadows, this long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals. The shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal. Also this palette features FIVE NEW shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. What I liked about this palette is they added a range of textures, from glitter to shimmer to matte, so it lets you create different looks for different occasions.

The case is made of chocolate velvet color with the word “NAKED” in gold foil lettering. It has mirror and also includes Urban Decay's first double-ended 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, featuring Zero (black) and Whiskey (deep brown). There is also a travel size Eyeshadow Primer Potion original formula included in the kit.

This product retails for $44.

Vegan Palette
Urban Decay is well known for making Vegan friendly products and more than half of their cosmetic line is vegan. For the very first time, they created a palette using exclusively vegan eyeshadows! How wonderful is that?

Six of their best-selling shades also just happen to be vegan so this palette is dedicated to their fervent vegan fans – those who “just say no” to using animal by-products of any kind.

The palette includes vibrant teal and a silvery money-green eyeshadows, in addition to four rich neutrals. The shadows included are - Minx, Urb, Gunmetal, Twice Baked, Smog and Half-Baked. Also in the kit includes a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin and 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero. The palette case shows intricate artwork printed with soy-based inks on recycled packaging.

This product retails for $34.

Book of Shadows Vol. III (UD♥NYC)
Urban Decay released their 3rd Book of Shadows (Limited Edition). This will be available in on September 6 but they released 1000 of these in Sephora Times Square, NYC last August 28. These will not be available in stores until October 1.

Like their other Book of Shadows, it includes a mirror with pop-art of New York City and lights. The palette features 16 eyeshadows - Perversion (Matte Black), Uzi (Shimmery White), Loaded (Shimmery Dark Emerald Green), Kush (Shimmery Grass Green), Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (Shimmery Champagne Pink), Last Call (Shimmery Pinkish Plum), Rockstar (Shimmery Deep Eggplant), Money (Shimmery Blue-Green), Haight (Frosty Blue), Maui Wowie (Shimmery Gold), Smog (Shimmery Dark Bronze), Bordello (Shimmery Mauve-Pink), Radium (Frosty Medium Blue), Snatch (Frosty Peach-Pink), Suspect (Medium Bronze), Psychedelic Sister (Medium Purple-Red). It also includes 2 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils and a travel size original formula Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

I am not that excited about the packaging, to me it looks like crap. Sorry but the UD♥ NYC just didn't please me. It looks like they cut the letters out of newspaper and it's not my fancy. Anyway, even if the packaging looks bad to me, I would still love to get this since the shadows included are just dupe. :)

This product retails for $54.


  1. the nyc shadows look hot...i will have to wait til they are released to the stores to make a final purchase decision.

  2. I love this pallete.
    cannot wait to get my hands on it

  3. I want this palette so badly but unfortunately urban decay products are not available in my country:(

  4. alvira!! same thing here!! i am wanting UDPP and the Naked pallette sooooo much!! cant get it here in india!!!

  5. same here :( But if you are able to shop online.. I am able to buy makeup products that are not available in my country via :)

  6. what local brands ( from philippines) of make-up can you recommend?.. thanks!..:)

  7. I haven't tried any local brand that I felt satisfied unfortunately :( So I don't recommend it. That's actually my biggest frustration about local makeup brands in the Philippines is that they do not really compare with other brands in terms of quality and availability of colors.


Have fun and stay beautiful everyone!
