LOTD + Review: Urban Decay NYC palette

My second palette I bought. Heaven only knows how many I have yet to show you. Lol jk I have one more. Heeey, I needed to get my hands on a variety of eye shadow colors due to the fact that I don't have many other than my everyday/typical smokey eye look. This was the cheapest way to satisfy my cravings, by HOARDING up on palettes... yay.

Anyways, Urban Decay is known for having very pigmented and shimmery eyeshadows, and that's exactly what I got, except for a matte light black color. Needless to say, I love love love this palette. Although this palette has similar colors to my Too Faced palette, it's okay because that one was a bargain (calculations done on one of my recent posts). It came with two sample-sized pencils of its 24/7 glide-on eye pencils in Ransom and Zero, as well as a sample-sized bottle of Urban Decay's primer potion. Not bad for $54. It's a shame make up has just been pronounced as my newly-found hobby, I would have gotten the Alice in Wonderland palette after seeing numerous posts on tumblr.
