Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol.III Eye shadows Review.

So just recently I purchased the Urban Decay BOS .III.


It's here, and it will sell out fast! This light-up, pop-up ode to NYC features 16 shadows (including 7 exclusive shades!), and travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils!

Totally obsessed with The Big Apple? So are we (how could anyone NOT be?) Inspired by the glimmering lights and iconic landmarks of New York City, Book of Shadows Vol III features 16 eyeshadows that go way beyond neutrals and brights, including SEVEN NEW shades with names like Loaded, Rockstar and Money. We've also included nine best-sellers in a range of sizzling textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte.

This Pallete Contain 16 beautifully pigmented eye shadows. Each eye shadow has its own unique color. Some have been repeated before or are in the permanent line.

First Row
The first row consists of:
Perversion: Its a Matte charcoal black. Its has a very soft texture. Its not a very deep black but its good for darkening any look.Part of the permanent line.

Uzi: Its a frosty white color with silver specks of glitter. Its a gorgeous color for inner corners but it does tend to have some fallout. Part of the permanent line.

Loaded: Its a deep forest green with a metallic green sheen to it. Its similar to NARS Rajasthan. This is a new color.

Kush: Its a grassy green. It does have a subtle cool undertone. Similar colors are present in the previous versions of BOS.This is a new color.

Second Row
The second row consists of:
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again: Its a champagne color with champagne specks of glitter. Its also has a subtle pink tinge to it. This color does tend to have fallout issues so just to be on the safe side i would recommend applying a sticky base before applying the eye shadow. Part of the permanent line.

Last Call: Its a plum color with red undertones. It has a shimmer finish, Part of the permanent line.

Rockstar: Its a deep eggplant shade with burgandy undertones. Its a shadow version of the 24/7 Eyeliner pencil in Rockstar. This is a new color.

Money: Its a blue-ish silver with a blue-green sheen to it. This is a new color.

Third Row

The third row consists of :
Haight: Its a bright medium blue with a hint of teal or maybe navy to it. Its a Sephora exclusive shade.

Maui Wowie: Its a toned down gold with specks of gold glitter. It has some fallout issues. Part of the permanent line.

Smog: Its a dark bronze with a frost finish. This shade has also been in the infamous Naked Palette. Part of the permanent line.

Bordello: Its a mauvy pink shade with specks of pink glitter. The color payoff is pretty good. This is a new color.

Forth Row
The forth row consists of:
Radium: Its a true blue with a frost finish. This is a good color to have. To top it off it has amazing color payoff. This is a powder eye shadow version of Radium Cream eye shadow. This is a new color.

Snatch: Its a frosty pink with a frost finish. Pat this on top of Maybelline's Cool Effects Cooling Cream Eye color in Pink Frost to get beautiful results. This has been in a palette before but not sure if its in the permanent line or not.

Suspect: Its a very cool bronze with hint of taupe. Looks like something that should have been in the Naked Palette. This is a new color.

Psychedelic Sister: Its a deep purple with slight red undertones, It has a frost finish, Its a Sephora exclusive shade.

My Thoughts about it:
Personally I am all for colors so this palette was a good buy for me. Its does have a few flaws but its not like they are not fixable. I would have liked it more if it did not have so may fallout issues but overall its a good palette.

Is this Palette for you?
If you are a fan of UD eye shadows then this BOS palette is good for you but if you are not into shimmery and/or frosty finishes than this might not be your thing.

My ratings:
4.9 / 5

Have you used this Palette? Tell me how it was for you :)
