The last ever (or so I heard) Urban Decay Book of Shadows (number IV) is actually my first. It was an impulse purchase while I was buying Morange from MAC on Debenhams.com (because there was 10% off). The liner, mascara and primer swung it for me, as well as the focus of this look - Blue Bus. I am now poor for the rest of the month, as there were three family birthdays to buy for and my hours are down at work. Was it worth it?
Onto the products, more photos, and a mini-review.
Base - Urban Decay Primer Potion (original), NYX Jumbo pencil in Pacific (medium blue, eyelid).
Eyeshadows - Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV colours - Zephyr (highlight), Skimp (blending/highlight), Blue Bus (inner lid), Hijack (outer lid), Lost (lower lash line) and Bust (crease) with a touch of Blackout from Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette in the crease, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Black.
Eyeliner/Mascara/Brows - Boujois Clubbing Liner Intense (black), Illamasqua Vow pencil (waterline), Urban Decay Whiskey 24/7 eyeliner pencil (under lower lashes), MAC brow pencil in Stud.
Face - Illamasqua Skinbase Foundation in 07, E.L.F translucent powder, MAC Bite of an Apple blush.
Lips - A mix of lipbalm and Sleek Pout Paint in Milkshake.
My quibbles are as follows - the size (I have a full IKEA Alex drawer set for my make-up and bodycare and can't find space for it!), the silly butterflies (they're not even pop-up on mine), the tutorials on that iphone reader card thing (which I borrowed my mum's phone to watch) were really rubbish and the one major flaw - mine had a flap of card above the drawer which was scraping the top of the Blue Bus/Bender/Midnight Cowgirl/Bust row. I fixed that now... but it was annoying. It got bits of stupid glitter from Midnight Cowgirl everywhere. The other thing is the presence of TWO bloody silly Midnight glitter-bomb colours, but whatevs.
Overall, I am really pleased with this eyeshadow palette. I think lots of the colours are super gorgeous (Blue Bus, Bender, Cobra, Baked, Gravity, Hijack, Crystal, Bust and Missionary), great as highlight colours (Skimp and Zephyr) and I get backups for already-favourites from the Naked palette (Sin and Gunmetal).
At some point (when I feel braver) this might be one for depoting (then I can throw the crappy packaging away forever... yesssssssssssss)
