Haul: Sephora online - Lets Get Naked!

I've been wanting this palette ever since i saw it on Temptalia. I realized i don't have enough neutral colors that are good quality. When i saw this palette i fell in love. It sold out fast on the urban decay website and sephora. It became available last week and i didn't waste time, so i ordered it. Im very pleased with the order. I placed it on Thursday, and i got the package Monday. Sephora sends 3 free samples that you can choose yourself. I got two perfume samples and bronzer sample. I also typed in "juicycouture" code and got another sample of the Couture Couture by Juicy Couture (its so cute!)

Lets talk about the palette...

It's a very sleek looking palette. Dark brown velvet feel that makes it look very simple yet classy. It contains 12 full sized eyeshadows. Let me repeat that dolls...FULL SIZED EYESHADOWS....12!... regular eyeshadows are 0.05 oz and are $17 each. This palette is $44 and so worth it. Out of all 12, six are permanent shades, five are new and one is a repromote.
(L to R: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal)
Virgin (nude satin), Sin (champagne shimmer), Naked (buff matte), Sidecar (beige sparkle), Buck (brown matte), Half Baked (bronze), Smog (golden brown shimmer), Darkhorse (bronze-plum shimmer), Toasted (taupe-bronze), Hustle (mocha shimmer), Creep (near-black metallic), Gunmetal (dark grey metallic).
In addition, you get a mini primer potion and a double ended eyeliner pencil - Zero and Whiskey, and a mirror yay! We're all familiar with Zero, which is a simple black eyeliner, but Whiskey is a new shade, which is a warm brown shade with some redish undertone. I compare it to Bourboun, which i have from the Summer Love palette, but it doesn't have the glitters.
What i think about this palette...
I'm so happy about this palette. The size is perfect to take with you if you're traveling. The eyeshadow combination and selection is amazing. They work great together for looks that vary form neutral to smokey eye. I love that it's not all glittery and shimmery, but it has two matte shades and not ones with full chunks of glitter. If i was to travel i wouldn't take anything else but this palette. I would use it to create looks to wear during daytime AND night time. Great value, great quality and great mix of colors. I highly recommend getting your hands on this. It should be in stores by end of August, if you can't find it online.
