I stood in line for more than an hour in Times Square to get this, and I'm sure glad I did! (Well, it was a nice experience too.) Starting with the packaging: I am a NY girl so I adore the pop-up, but as with the other BoS', it is a bit too chunky and impractical for my tastes. Still, I love displaying it on my makeup table, and I have other palettes to travel with. (There are mini-lights in the pop-up design!)
As for the eyeshadows, the only complaint I have is the glitter- there are a few glitterbombs in this one too, and I absolutely *hate* the hardcore fallout that comes with the otherwise nice colors. The rest have beautiful textures, (Except maybe radium, which has a slightly chalky texture? not very noticeable though.) I love the variety of looks you can create with this, as it has nice neutrals as well as brights.
The 2 liners it comes with are cute - zero is a classic staple in my stash, as it's smooth and black and super-easy to use. Ransom was a bit weird on me, as it gets sheer on certain spots on my lid, but with a few strokes, it's a gorgeous, vibrant, blurple!
Overall, I would get your hands on this as soon as possible, if possible! I find myself reaching for this often, and for the price-per-shadow, I think it's a good deal.
I have this product for about two weeks now and I am really loving the shadows and the packaging. The inside mirror will lite up when open and it is great for on the go. However, it does take up some space, so I take the shadows out from the draw and I do not use the mirror that cmes with it, the graphic is too pretty to demage, as many of people know I ama NYC girl who grew up in NY til recently, so I really love this book of shadow , I am glad UD came up with this cute palette. The color pay off is great, nonetheless, they are still the same colors as their single shadows, therefore, if you already have most of the shadows, you may not want to get this palette unless, you would like to collect something cute, fun and pretty. this is going to be a limited edition collection like the alice in wonderland. But much better, I am not sure of the price yet, I think something similar to the vol. II. This Vol. III will be release in store around the beginning of october, so save and get it before it runs out. it is a must have for UD fans. Have Fun
