Urban Decay Book of Shadows III

Just kidding!!! This is the Book of Shadows Vol. III Redux palette, it is only like a bit over a year old I believe and is limited edition. The colors are still amazing nonetheless. And I got it for a really reasonable price, of $35 at Ulta, so it was worth it to me. My Naked/Naked 2 palettes are literally holy grail can't live without them items so I know these colors will live up to the quality of other Urban Decay products. I am glad to have expanded my palette though, I don't have too many crazy shades outside of neutrals. When you break it down, each individual UD eyeshadow normally retails for $18 a pan! This set came with 16 colors for a fraction of that price, as well as a travel size Primer Potion and a black 24/7 Glide on Pencil, also worth $19. Anyway- here are the photos.

Left to Right: 
Oil Slick- smoky black with powdery consistency, quite a lot of fallout and medium pigmentation, good for layering. Fine glitter finish. Not truly dark black.
Uzi- My least favorite of the bunch. Extremely glittery which leads to lots of fallout, not very white as it looks in the pan, more of sheer glitter. Maybe would look good over other colors. Pretty sure it's discontinued now anyway.
Stray Dog- a really rich and smooth taupe color, very light shimmer, subtle pinkish undertones.
Mildew- nicely textured, shimmery moss colour. Hint of golden undertone, very wearable.

Midnight Cowboy Rides Again- large glitter, large fallout. Slightly similar to Stila Kitten but with way more shimmer. Perhaps would apply better wet. Still a pretty beige/champagne color.
SWF- extremely pigmented, cool frosted pink. Shimmer is pretty noticeable, smooth texture.
Last Call- a rich, bold plum color with great payoff. Red undertones, buttery consistency.
Rockstar- "Deep Aubergine", a dark, smoky purple with reddish shimmer undertones and good dimension.

Left to Right: 
Haight- a frosted bluish-teal, on the murky side, with medium pigmentation. Gorgeous color.
Maui Wowie- a khaki/goldish shde with silvery-gold shimmer, reminds me of bubbly champagne! Beware fallout though, seems like a glitterbomb.
Aquarius- a buttery, frosted, pale aqua/greenish color with beautiful payoff. Something a water nymph would wear.
Smog- little fallout, pigmented and metallic, nice cocktail of bronze, gold and brown.

Goddess- quite pigmented but chalky texture, a dark, shimmery, midnight blue. Would probably use wet, and not without primer.
Sin- silky formulation and blends amazing. Good to use as hilighter, or even base color. Shimmery nude with pink.
YDK- a cocoa, silvery taupe, smooth texture, glitter/shimmer with a cool tone.
Ecstacy- moderate pigmentation, definitely buildable. An iridescent and vibrant violet with pink undertones.
