Wish List - Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. III

I'm actually pretty excited about this one. I don't own any book of shadows from Urban Decay and i think i really would like to get this one. I regret missing out on the Alice in Wonderland palette, mainly because of the packaging (LOL!) but im really liking this one.
Since im from New York myself, i would really love to have this palette. Also, the colors are very pretty. I love that there are 7 new shades, 2 Sephora exclusive shades and another 7 permanent shades. All in all you get 16 eyeshadows for the price of $54. They of course include two pencils, in Zero and Ransom, and a mini primer potion.

Here are the colors:
(Information from Temptalia)

  • Perversion is a matte charcoal black. This is a permanent shade, and it has been featured in BoS I and II.
  • Uzi is a whitish-silver with flecks of silver glitter. This is a permanent shade, and it has been featured in the Sustainable palette.
  • Loaded is a deep forest green with a metallic shimmer sheen. This is new and exclusive to this palette.
  • Kush is a medium grassy green with a subtle cool undertone. This is a nice shade with excellent color payoff, and it is new and exclusive to this palette.
  • Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is a pink-tinged champagne with champagne flecks of glitter. This shade is permanent, and it has been in BoS II and BoS Alice in Wonderland, as well as the Sustainable palette.
  • Last Call is a medium plum with strong red undertones and shimmer finish. This is a permanent shade that’s also a popular palette shade–it’s been featured in BoS I, BoS AiW, and Ammo.
  • Rockstar is a deep shade of eggplant purple with burgundy-red undertones and a shimmer-sheen. This is a new and exclusive shade to the palette.
  • Money is a silvered blue with a metallic blue-green sheen. Very pretty and will be a great shade to layer over colored bases to bring out different undertones. This shade is new and exclusive to the palette.
  • Haight is a brightened medium blue with a frost finish that pulls just an itsy bit teal. This is shade is permanent, but it’s a Sephora exclusive. It hasn’t been in any other palettes.
  • Maui Wowie is an antique gold with a nearly metallic gold sheen. It also has flecks of dark gold glitter, so it can have some fall out issues. This is a permanent shade, and it’s also been in BoS AiW and Ammo.
  • Smog is a medium-dark bronze with a shimmer-frost finish. This is a shade that’s been in a ton of palettes! It’s permanent, but it has also been released in BoS I, Ammo, Naked, and Vegan.
  • Bordello is a mauve-tinged pink with soft flecks of dark pink shimmer-glitter. It’s smooth, pigmented, and has an almost metallic sheen. This is a new and exclusive shade.
  • Radium is a true medium blue with a cooler undertone and a softer frost finish. Great pigmentation! It is new and exclusive to this palette, and I imagine its color gets inspiration from Radium Cream Eyeshadow.
  • Snatch is a peachy-pink with a frosty finish. It’s very smooth and has nice pigmentation. This was originally in the Show Pony palette.
  • Suspect is a medium bronze that pulls a smidgen taupe and has a rather cooler undertone. This is a new and exclusive shade.
  • Psychedelic Sister is a brightened medium purple with red undertones. It’s a nice shade of purple that’s pigmented and has a soft frost sheen. It’s a permanent, but it is a Sephora exclusive. This is the first time it’s been in a palette.

I'm really lovin the variety! I do own Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Perversion, Maui Wowie and Smog, so if you have any questions regarding those four eyeshadows, i can tell you from experience using them.
The design of the palette seems really nice. It looks sleek black, and has the NYC feel to it. Lots of colors, and the pop-up is very busy looking, just like the city! lol!
I'm very big on palettes so i really recommend checking out the Urban Decay ones. They're always good value, great quality and very unique. I rarely, almost never get the individual eyeshadows. The only one i have as an individual is Perversion, which was my first Urban Decay eyeshadow. The rest are in palettes. They're handy to carry with you, they're worth great value, and they look super pretty to have as a collection.
It's said to be released sometime in September/October.
