Urban Decay is a brand I'm only mildly familiar with, but this palette has piqued my interest. The Book Of Shadows III palette is $54, contains 16 shadows, 2 eye pencils, and their eyeshadow Primer Potion. When you open the palette, it lights up to a backdrop of various NYC scenes like the Empire State Building and yellow cabs galore.
Almost every year my girlfriends get me a limited edition M.A.C. eyeshadow palette. Hey, I told you it was good to have my birthday this time of year. This year the theme is A Tartan Tale, with every item encased in plaid glory. Though the packaging doesn't seem as holiday-ish as usual, (Does plaid remind you of the holidays? Not so much for me) the eyeshadow colors are still lust-worthy. 6 shadows for $36. I'm having trouble deciding which I like better, the Beauties Play It Cool collection of smokes and purples, or the more daring colors of the 6 Twists Of Tartan palette.
