Urban Decay Books Of Shadows vol III Redux ♥ NYC Palette Limited : Review

~ no matter what I do , all I think about is you ~

Nelly ft Kelly R - Dilemma

Hi readers! How are you ?
I keep hearing news about floods and traffic jams anywhere in Indonesia. Especially at Jakarta. Sigh. I'm not a believer of global warming conspiracy, nor 2012 doomsday. But I really think that the climate on Earth is significantly changed! Stop littering! It will jam the sewage and will make Jakarta flooding >.>
I'm not really an Earth Lover or PETA freak so lets skip the formality and the boring thing. Lets continue~
And today I will introduced you to my new baby ♥ *drumroll*

Urban Decay Books of Shadows vol III Redux / NYC PALETTE
Actually this is a revamp of Urban Decay Books of Shadow vol III that was released last year. And now Urban Decay has tweaked some of the colors and the palette. It used to looks like this:

And this year! They released a new version of it. It's limited edition and thank God they reduced the price too. It's 39$ (Worth $190++ if u buy single eyeshadow and the eyeliner and the primer potion) ( But I bought it for 550k++ I've been robbed!! ) But it's still a good deal though.
And now the palette looks like this, it's not as big as I thought, it's just a size of man's palm ( Bigger than DVD'S case )
Da cover

Open it!! And it shiningggg *.* drolls. Cute packaging!

16 Eyeshadow Colors , UD 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero ( Black ) Travel size , UDPP Original Miniature Size

Tada !! Click image to see bigger size. I'm still using my BB camera btw -.-
IKR ! It's very cute.. At first when I saw it oh my god it's very cute.. I can't even bring myself to use it.. 
This is the description from UD website:
A limited-edition remix of our NYC palette, this ode to the Big Apple features 16 gorgeous shadows and a cool pop-up display that lights up when you open it.
Urban Decay hearts NYC and we want the whole world to know. So a little while back, we created a palette to profess our undying love for our East Coast home away from home. Now this popular palette is back (with a NEW LOW PRICE, some shade changes and a few other tweaks)—but only for a limited time. 
Pull out the drawer to reveal 16 amazing Eyeshadow shades, from versatile neutral hues and smoky-eye essentials to bold, attention-grabbing brights. You also get a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion (for crease-free color that lasts for 24 hours) and a travel-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in our best-selling, award-winning zealous black.
Of course, no ode to NYC would be complete without a tribute to its glimmering lights and iconic landmarks, so we topped it all off with a pop-up, light-up collage of the city that never sleeps. 
Whether you didn’t get this one the first time around or you never miss a single Urban Decay palette release, snap up this specially priced set before it’s all sold out—‘cause once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. 
And now the review about the eyeshadow :
At first, It's TOO MUCH GLITTER for me..
When I wanted to apply the eyeshadow,some the glitter fell all over my face ugh.
And Here is the swatch :
excuse my ugly hand writing and the shadow of my bb!

If you have two of Urban Decay's palette, you can found similar color here. lol I mean naked 1 and naked 2. Actually the exact same -.- ( SMOG, SIN, YDK )
Actually there's similar color between naked 1 and naked 2 too lol but I really really love Urban Decay sighh so I purchased both -.-
*can you hear the sound of my wallet's cries?lol*

The description of the colors from UD website:

  • Uzi (silver metallic w/big iridescent sparkles)
  • Stray Dog (cool ash brown metallic)
  • Mildew (mossy green shimmer w/gold shift)

  • Goddess (deep smoky blue w/aqua micro-glitter)
  • Sin (champagne shimmer)
  • YDK (cool bronze shimmer)
  • Ecstasy (bright purple shimmer w/slight pink shift)
 So far the pigmentation is very good. You know la UD's quality.  I don't have any problems with that.
The crayon/creamy eyeliner is also very good, it has a good pigmentation and create a deep black color in a single stroke. Here's the swatch :

I still haven't create a look using this palette. But someday I will definitely share it to y'all. *when i manage to improve my technique of course *

Overall : A
Pigmentation : 10/10
Price : 8/10 (Relatively Expensive)
Packaging : 8/10 ( Not too bulky but not recommended to be carried for travel )
Colors : 10/10
Texture : 9/10 ( Some of Glitters often fall out )
Favourite Colors : Maui Wowie , Uzi, Last Call, Oil Slick.

Overall this palette is worth the price. But if you're not into glitter / shimmery finish and prefer the matte finish I don't recommend this to you ^^
You can purchase this palette from my Online shop @BunnyBeauty on twitter or Bunny Beaut Cosmetica on fb. The Pre order price is cheaper ( about 450k-500k )
And this is the end of my review. Sorry If there's any typo / grammatical error. I'm still learning. See you again next time ^^
