Wow this is a great deal! Are you ordering?

I had a feeling that's what happened, then I thought maybe you mentioned it earlier in the thread that you loved that color, but couldn't remember. Verve is very pretty, now I want that palette I'm going to Sephora tomorrow to test it out. If I like the palette (hopefully they have it), I'm going to order when I get home. I almost ordered, but realized I was being too impulsive. Need to think this one through.

Thanks I'll let you know. Going to lunch with my family near the mall and if I remember, I'm going to run up to Sephora.

The article won't load for me, but I can see most of it on the front page of her blog. That is SO NOT COOL

I'm very glad I went and swatched before buying. They had 2 of the colors (Verve and the dark brown one) and they both didn't look good on me. I knew the bright pink one wouldn't work, so it only left me with one color. I'm going to pass on buying anything until I need more Primer Potion, then I'm buying Sin and the Original together for $28.

I ended up walking to the opposite side of the mall for Sephora (met my family for lunch there) to do the swatches. When I came back, I realized Macy's, where my family and I had been hanging out for a good 30 minutes, had Urban Decay now. Oh well, got my exercise

I can't wait for this! Also, I'm loving the make-your-own palette. All my UD shadows are depotted and put into MAC pro palettes, but that's such a pita.
Woooooo!


Lately I've been considering depotting my BOS palettes. They're pretty, but just cardboard and they take up sooooo much space. (I'd probably leave Alice, but I am pretty sure I want to depot the BOS 4 and New York. Undecided on 1 and 2.)

AC/DC is a great purple! You have all of the bos pallets? I also love mushroom but forgot to look and see if that is on the permanent list. I am looking forward to building my own pallet too. I always wanted to do that with Mac but never did and am glad I didn't now. Are their pro pallets good for putting UD shadows in?
Good luck on depotting from the bos! I hate how bulky they can be, take up so much room.

UD is running a promo/sweepstakes to enter to win all of their new shadows. You have to 'like' them on facebook to enter, though.

Ohhhh I didn't know these launched on the UD site today. Looking and want! Just don't want to spend the money on it. Hmmm, but the fun thing is that I can spend time building the pallet with the best colors possible. And free shipping is nice. I wish they wouldn't have it them in their own container and sold the shadows for less. Like other brands sell their shadows just in the pan for less money. But it is neat that you can switch them in and out of the pallet too depending on where you might be traveling.

Wow I can't believe you have them all! Which one is your fave? I think the second one is mine.

I wonder if they will stil, fit in the pro pallet with the new packaging like you said rabbitluvr.

That's pretty sweet. Do only the new shadows fit in the palette though?

It would have been nice if they'd offer just the pan for a little less, but I expect they don't want to be just like the other brands. I also wonder if maybe their warehouse/fulfillment center can't handle that sort of inventory.

I think I use the Alice In Wonderland palette the most. I use a lot of Sin with Last Call, or Mushroom, so that one is easy to reach for. It looks like Mushroom is a new permanent color, so now I'm really glad I didn't buy the Mariposa palette just to get another Mushroom!

So the pallet itself will go up in price. Dang! I may just order the pallet for future shadow purchases. Good deal with a shadow and a brush.

That's cool. I have sin in their shadow pencils and have been wearing it daily. Nice spring color. I did get the mariposa pallet and am in love ith it. I was wondering if those are the new shadow formulas? Because if they are they are very nice and smooth and silky and highly pigmented.

A bunch of the new shadows are already out of stock. Holy moly. If it goes to sephora I an always wait and use my gift cards to get the pallet and a shadow or two. Hmmm

It looks like only the ne shadows will fit in there, but I could be wrong.

If you click on the link to like them for the sweepstakes it will ask for your name and email and then you are entered. I just entered and already had liked urban decay. It was easy. Man that would be awesome to win every shadow. Holy crap, would never need to buy another one!

Hello girls,
I'm wondering if you can recommend me some animal friendly powder foundations. I'm a student and in a tight budged so if you can recommend something that is from a drugstore or something cheaper then the pricey ones, it would be great!

Edit: Also is royal jelly from bees vegetarian? Because I've heard that many make-up products use them, and that bees don't get hurt or the larvae from this.

Ever tried Physicians Formula?
post #3801 of 3886
No, I haven't but I have heard good reviws about them! Are those any good? I'm trying to find something that's natural looking and not on the too dry side!

Also, it looks like some of their older shades have been discontinued, I wonder how much longer those will be available? The only two I'm unhappy about are Lounge (wearing today, actually) and Hotpants (I don't have any other pink that color). I might check if Sephora has those in stock, I have a gift card I could use to get backups.*

I think the new shadows are supposed to be at Sephora and Ulta next month.

The Mariposa palette got awesome reviews for quality, so maybe they were using that to test a new formula? I love the tin packaging.

UD did say on their FB page that the old shadow do not fit in the new palette.


*Actually, that's a stupid idea. I have more eyeshadow than I can ever use in my life.

I looked at the terms and conditions and the end date is april 14th so you got plenty of time!

I am sure sephora will have them until the new formulas come out, I wonder if the old shades will go on clearance? I bet they have the shades right now. I hear you, I have way too many shadows to ever use as well! Haha They have Woodstock, I got that in the roller girl pallet. Not sure how close that is to hot pants.

The mariposa pallet is really nice, I love every color in it and I hope the new shadows are that quality. I am still debating on whether to get a pallet or not. Time is running out!
post #3803 of 3886
Uh oh, the discontinued shades are going out of stock on sephoras site! They are out of hot pants but still have lounge, the others are not in stock either. Crazy!

Revlon doesn't test on animals, you could see if they have powders. Never tried them myself though.
post #3805 of 3886
I've received the discount card for sephora, too. I really don't *need* anything, but who can pass up 15% off?

Most of my UD came from Hautelook. I've gotten several things from Hautelook, matter of fact. I really like them.

I still think it's a good idea, and I love that they've revamped their permanent line.

Woodstock is MUCH brighter and darker than Hotpants. I think Hotpants has been out of stock on Sephora.com for quite a while now, and it goes in and out of stock at Urban Decay a lot, too. Maybe they have supply problems with that one. I just got a coupon in the mail for Sephora, starting on Thursday, so I'll go in to get a new foundation (I'm almost out) and if they have Hotpants in stock, I might snag one with my gift card.

There is also a chance that the d/c shades will turn up on Hautelook in the future, too. The matte shadows were going on there for $5 each, several times, before supply finally ran out.

Yeah I looked at my UD kits and my other shadows too and I will wait awhile until I get a pallet and start building one. My wallet will thank me too! Haha I know I will end up building one in the future, always wanted to build my own pallet. Do you have the naked pallets too? I have the first one and loves it. Would be interested in the second one since it is the new formula, I noticed they felt smoother when I was swatching them at sephora. Like I need it though.
I saw that. I went back to the sephora site after I posted and looked. I think I would like hot pants better too. I got Woodstock in that pallet but I am not a big fan of it. I have issues with the color payoff on it. Not the greatest. But maybe the new formula would make it better? I need to look up a swatch of hot pants.

Oh I have gotten good UD off of haute look too! Got some good gifts for people that were UD too. I do hope they show up there, that would be awesome! I never did get any of the matte colors, wasnt sure about them. They were some strange colors.

Oh man I got that 15% off too and have no idea what to do. There is nothing I need or want right now. Everything I have my eyes on is not released at sephora yet. Argh!

I got a pair of shoes off of there too that I love. They have some good deals.

Yay! Then I will enjoy the new revamped line more for sure. Did you notice a difference with the bos 4?
Does anyone else hate the midnight shadow line up as much as me? Glitter fall out galore. Annoys me. Haha I almost went for that 15th anniversary but ultimately didn't. Damn.

I held off on Naked 2. The colors are soooo similar to Naked 1. I would have gotten it if it had more cool shades, since I'm pale with pink undertones, but it's just more warm colors. And I HATE the Midnight line. They're all horrible.

Awesome thanks! I made a list of all of the UD shadows that I have, man there is a lot. No need for more right now! Glad I held off.

Agreed, I don't think anyone needs that many neutrals at one time. I do quite like the first naked pallet though. I take it whenever I travel. So many different looks and options.

I don't understand how the midnight line is so popular? No one I have ever spoken to likes them. Confusing.
post #3809 of 3886
What other beauty blogs do you all read? I look at temptalia daily, musing of a muse is pretty good as well. Any other good ones out there?
Did you all see Christine's videos on her makeup collection on temptalia? I drooled for like the entire 20 minutes. Haha
post #3810 of 3886
She did a video today going over the new UD shadows and pallet and you can put the old shadows into the new pallet. They are a bit bigger and she warns it may stretch out the inside of the pallet but you can do it. You just have to depot it and press it into the new pallet. Pretty cool but paying $18 for one shadow kind of kills me off of this pallet. It is like $126 to fill a pallet! Yikes!

Ah I am an NC15 in the winter, NC25 in the summer. Does the c mean cool and the w mean warm? I always thought I had a warm complexion but then I always look better in cooler shadows and blushes. I may have just learned something today. Haha

Isn't baked in about every pallet? Goods choice! So they will fit in an empty pallet. How do you make a pallet? Do you buy the case and put our own insert in?sounds like a fun weekend project. I once pressed all of my edm into empty pallets and still have those. Should bust them out and see if they are worth using anymore.
