I decided to get this palette for my Christmas present this year. ;-) I have a lot of UD palettes but this is my first Book of Shadows volume. I could not pass up all the newer shadows & since it had a smaller Ransom pencil & primer & I got it for 20% less, well it was a no brainer! I love it! The shadows are intriguing all by their self. I went through all of my UD palettes & compared the colors with the volume 3 before I decided to buy. There are a few colors that always seem to be in any of their palettes and a part of me wishes UD would start leaving a few of these out and add some different ones. ;-) I mean how many Urban Cowboy's, etc. shadows do we need after all? Okay so some of them are a little different by adding glitter, but basically they are the same. LOL I know they add the duplicate colors in order to say, "Hey, you get 16 shadows!" but come on. I would have bought it with just 8 or 10 shadows of all the newest colors, as I think most UD lovers would.
I actually think the case is cute, okay cute, but I am not that crazy about it. New Yorker's, sorry, but I rather have a pop-out of another fairy tale if I have to have one. LOL The pop out is not why I bought this palette and I really do think it cost more for the design of this box even if UD says it does not. I gave it a 5 on packaging because I love it that the shadows are hidden inside their own protective compartment.
Of course, I cannot speak volume enough about the quality of the UD shadows! They are among my very favorite shadows, as far as, how great they last & how vibrant the colors are. They go on smoothly, blend beautifully, and the color stays as true from when I first put it on as to when I take it off. I always feel sad when it is time to take off my UD eye makeup. ;-) Seriously though, unless I have done a bad really job of applying my eye makeup for the day, I really do hate taking UD off when it is time for bed. It still looks so fresh & vibrant, it's almost like wasting good makeup to have to take it off, but what the hey, it will be more fun redoing it tomorrow with all these lovely new colors!
