From NYC: Urban Decay Book of Shadows III NYC Palette

12/20/2010Shen Gee

An early Christmas gift came from New York a few weeks back and it's no less than Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume III New York City Palette. It's not a secret that I collect the Urban Decay Book of Shadows, thanks for Gracie for being the first one to have made it possible for me to get my hands on Urban Decay Book of Shadows. I know many people have the problem with it having similar shades in each palette. But for me, that's not a problem since I'm a big fan of all Urban Decay eyeshadows. They are exactly type of shadows I like, satiny and shimmery. Playing around all my Book of Shadows is always a joy for me.

New york has always fascinated me and it's my biggest desire to go and live there someday. I love how diverse it is and how it's filled with lots of interesting things, from arts to fashion; architecture to lifestyle; traditions and events... it's just something I wish I could do someday... walk the streets of New York.

Having a dose of that with the Urban Decay book of Shadows Volume III is just what I needed to temporarily sate me of my cravings for visiting New York. The bright lights that shines when you open the pop of design of this palette was quite a nice surprise. I'm like a kid palying with a new toy! I was ooohhh-ing and aaahhh-ing like crazy. Hahahaha!

Isn't it so chic? All the famous landmarks, cute sneaks, the NY Taxi, and chic people I imagine seeing in the busy streets of New York. Le sigh!

As always, I get carried away taking pictures of my newest palette. :)

And for a closer look of the eyeshadows. :) (click photos to enlarge)

Gosh! The new colors are so addicting! Radium is one of the brighest blues I've seen, it's great for gradation when doing a smokey blue. Kush reminds me of a shade from Mad Minerals that I ran out of, it's the perfect metallic green. Bordello is the best shade for a simple but ooomph look, great addition for a smokey purple eyes. Rockstar is the perfect shade for deepening the crease for the smokey eyes. I'm sooo in love with all of them. :)

I'm happy to see some of the existing shades like Snatch, Smog, and Last Call. While I'm happy to include Psychedelic Sister, Uzi and Haight to my list of favorite UD faves. :)

The Urban Decay Book of Shadows III also included my favortie 24/7 Glide-on pencil in Zero while Ransom was a nice addition to my 24/7 Glide-on pencils. :)

I just can't get over that I have this palette and the rest of the Urban Decay Book of Shadows in my possession. I'm forever grateful to the people who gave all of these to me. It's not quite a small victory for me to have completed BOS collection and I'll always cherish them. :) I know it's just makeup but for me, it's a testament of how much my friends and family care for me. :)

It is truly a happy Christmas for me. :)
