my friend Sarah(mentioned in my last post), who is a fellow makeup whore, did some spring cleaning with her makeup collection... she was able to pick out stuff to sell & this is what I got from her....

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Palette
(the very first one)
remember this?? I already have the Volume II... now my current dilemma is that now that I have the two, I wanna get the Alice in Wonderland & make it a 'Book of Shadows' collection... another problem is if it's still available??? is it still being sold?? anywhere?? help??

& the detail inside is pretty, however, I find it very useless...

I'm also not a big fan of the actual palette itself as it is a bitch to pull out... but not to worry, once you see the colors.... hmmmm... heaven!!
my fave is the BAKED one.... uber pigmented!!!

here are the swatches in the same order as the eyeshadows in the palette

I got it for $30... which I think is a good deal, coz she hasn't used this palette, it looks like it was only swatched by her curious fingers, for her curious eyes... LOL 

she actually had a lot of stuff... I picked out 3 eyeshadow kits/palettes... but since I'm broke, thank G I managed to get only one thing... I mean if the MAC class wasn't this week & if the Sephora March Madness discount is not ending tomorrow then I would probably get more things... I was kinda savin up for those...

& for the NOTW:

China Glaze

I actually did my nails on Thursday... so these pictures were taken 3 days later, so you might notice a little chipping & some scratches... originally, I applied only 1 coat of the nail polish on top of the Nail Magic nail hardener, then a coat of Seche Vite top coat... it looks really pigmented but the picture didn't do it any justice... it looks prettier than the picture... it's sad that I wasn't able to capture that real periwinkle color it offers....

I've been getting a lot of compliments with my nails.. so I think I'm getting a little better with application & taking proper care of my nails... (which you probably couldn't tell with these pictures... LOL)

I thought I wasn't gonna like this n/p but I love this color... it's very spring! =)

  1. Love the color! I haven't swatch mines yet, thanks for the post!

    lol, I don't have the power to resist a good deal. I'm going back today to pick up another top coat and CG, with my purchase last night I got an $5 off reward coupon hopefully I'll spend $2 only.
