Eye Feel PRITTEH! Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. II (review)…AND…Friends & Family Sale!

Hey! It's Veteran's Day! It's also "Review Something New From Urban Decay Day." (And it is, of course, Wednesday.) Lately, I have completely submitted to the fabness that is UD; so I was just thrilled to try out this palette.

Book Of Shadows Vol. ll (Limited Edition)

Blurb: Like a sequel to a great novel that you were sorry to see end, Book of Shadows is back with Volume II to captivate us once again. The largest and most unique palette we offer, Vol. II is stocked with 16 shadows (including 8 exclusive to this set), travel size 24/7 Eye Pencils in Zero and Bourbon, and a mini genie bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion. The mix of shadows includes shimmers and glitters, neutrals and brights. Build just about any look you can imagine!

NEW/exclusive shades: AC/DC (deep eggplant shimmer), Nylon (champagne sparkler), Mushroom (taupey-gunmetal), Sphynx (pink sparkle/shimmer), Jinx (bright blue shimmer), Homegrown (bright green shimmer), Misdemeanor (deep teal sparkle), and Perversion (matte black). Existing/best-selling shades: Sellout, Gunmetal, Ecstasy, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside and YDK.

Covered in pearly white with a purple foil design, the Book of Shadows opens to reveal a generous mirror framed in exotic peacock feathers. Hiding behind secret doors in the top of the case is a mini look book, full of inspiring photos of our favorite model, Daniela. Try the looks yourself, or give this coveted palette as a gift to a truly deserving friend.

I never got to check out Volume 1; so I made sure that I would not miss the limited edition fun this year. I heart/love/adore this palette! For starters, there are two 24/7 pencils - in Zero (black) and Bourbon (a rich shimmery brown). There's also a completely perfect purse/travel size bottle of the Eyeshadow Primer Potion. And to fully rock your world, there are 16 spanking hot shadows!

What's that you say? Your world is still not fully rocked? Fine. Let me just point out that 8 of the shades are exclusive to the palette. The four new ones that really stood out for me were Sphynx (a rosy pink), AC/DC (a deep plum), Mushroom (a sophisticated go with everything brown) and Perversion (a perfect matte black). And one of my all time favs is also in the kit: Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (a sexy gold glitter fest).

And now that your world is fully rocked; let's tip it over with news of the awesome sale! That's right, if you buy stuff on the website from November 9-20; you can save a bundle (30% to be exact) during the Urban Decay Friends and Family Event (online only).
