I am so excited to share this eyeshadow palette with you as I am so happy to have got it! This is the latest Book of Shadows from Urban Decay which was released a couple of months ago. It comes with 16 eyeshadows (including 10 new shades), a waterproof liquid eyeliner in Perversion, an original Primer Potion and a Super Curl mascara plus some special features which include a portable speaker and some tutorials for you to view on your phone.
As with all of the Urban Decay Book of Shadows the packaging is amazing! The top of the box features a magnetic snap-shut lid which opens to reveal some beautiful butterflies, a mirror, a slot to house your mobile phone and a card which has details of the make-up tutorials and how to access them.
There is a draw in the bottom section of the box that you pull out which houses the 16 eyeshadows, the eyeliner, Primer Potion and mascara. The 24/7 Liquid eyeliners are a fairly new edition to the Urban Decay range and feature a fine tip, Perversion is a dark black colour and is perfect for achieving the perfect cat-eye flick! The Supercurl mascara comes in a travel sized and features a really nicely curved brush which makes application much easier and finally the box also comes with a travel sized Primer Potion in Original which is an amazing eyeshadow base and a must have product. for everyone in my opinion!

As I mentioned above, 10 of these shadows are new and 6 we have seen before including Gunmetal and Sin which were featured in the Naked palette. I like that there is a mixture of neutral, more subtle shades and some brighter colours. Most of the eyeshadows have a pretty good amount of colour pay-off and apply nicely and blend well. As I have found with several Urban Decay shadows in the past, some can contain a large amount of glitter and/or shimmer which can make them much harder to apply and gritty in texture, but on the whole this is a really good set.
Overall, I have to say that I really like this palette. All of the Book of Shadows from Urban Decay are beautiful and are a must have for all UD fans. There are so many options for looks that you can create using this palette and it makes a wonderful gift for any make-up addict!
