I've wanted to work on this blog post for awhile. Mostly because I needed to see all my Urban Decay shadows in one place so I don't buy duplicates whenever I want a new color. Which is often these days. Maybe its because it's towards the winter in Minnesota and I just can't wait for spring.
I think it first started when I bought "Kiddie Pool" from Urban Decay as a single shadow because I didn't own any blue colors. I don't wear this shadow very often because I think it's not as smooth as the "newer" colors. Maybe the formula circa 2011 wasn't the best.
Then one day on Brad's Deals, I saw that the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 4 was on sale and picked two up - one for both Mona and one for me. I love the packaging on this palette. I'll always love this palette the most as it was my first real UD experience. Such fond memories of using this palette!
I think sometime in 2013, I hit pan on Lost and Sin. I wanted to buy Sin again and saw it in the Ammo Palette at Sephora. I thought, why not just get a palette and try out more colors? I love how compact this palette is. There's not a lot of product, but I think it's a great sampling of all the colors. I usually never hit pan anyway!
In January of 2014, I was visiting with a friend from Vegas and she recommended the Naked 2 Palette for my every day and travel use. My favorite shadow is YDK in this palette!
For the rest of 2014, I caught the UD bug and bought many more palettes on sale. I bought the Glinda palette because I liked the metal packaging and the ability to swap out colors. I love the purple in this palette. The names aren't written in the palette but I found the information on Musings of a Muse:
- Tornado (vibrant deep purple shimmer)
- Aura (iridescent white with blue shift/Iridescent white with red shift)
- Magic (pinkish purple with a golden shimmer)
- llusion (pale peach satin)
- Oz (gold with gold glitter/silver with silver glitter)
- South (warm pale gray shimmer with silver micro-glitter)

That year, the Dangerous and Feminine Palettes were on sale on Urban Decay. I still am bummed that I didn't also get the Flirty Palette. They were sold out by the time I was onto the sale!
When Chef Yadi asked me what I wanted for presents in 2014, I naturally leaned towards more eyeshadow. He agreed to get me the sparkly Moondust eyeshadows and I selected four of my favorite shades: Zodiac, Diamond Dog, Intergalactic and Space Cowboy.
And during the fall of 2014, I couldn't stop reading about the Electric Palette because of all the bold colors! So during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, I picked it up! My biggest regret is forgetting to bring this palette with me to India in 2015. It would have been the perfect compliment to all the colors of India! Next time.
I felt guilty in 2015 and only bought UD's Vice 4 Palette with a $20 coupon I had saved for the year. Unfortunately, approximately 3 weeks after I purchased it, the palette went on sale. I still feel like I wasted my coupon and UD would not offer me a price adjustment! Grrr...
Those are all the Urban Decay shadows I own! I love all of them. I am still trying to incorporate more colors on the weekends so that I spread the love. I'll also update this post directly whenever I get new UD products so that I keep myself organized!
