UD Depotting

So, I decided to depot my UD eye shadows from its ridiculously large (Book of Shadows IV) box. YAY! My first time depotting! I nearly cracked the mossy brown/green shade, yikes!  And silly me, I realized I didn't have an empty palette to put these in to.  I just put in an order with TKB Trading for some "Freestyle" magnetic palettes, mostly because of the good price point. Review to come when I get those in!

As for these shadows, very pretty! Same, consistent, fine-milled, super pigmented quality of UD shadows.  No matte colors, all of them have a frosty(?) sheen to them 10 out of the 16 shades are NEW to UD.  I got this online from Urban Decay for $44 minus $15 with coupon code SEVENTEEN11 (MSRP $64).  I wanted the free shipping (if you spend $50+), so I also picked up the Ink for Eyes (in Zero) and Little Sins Eyeshadow Primer Potion Set in the sale section. My total came out to ~$55 (with tax). I kind of wish I got the Urban Bride instead because it has stuff I don't have yet (like the setting spray).

This is really cute and I liked the packaging. The color payoff isn't as dark as my MAC Fluidline or Maybelline Eyestudio gel liner. The brush is nice and it's something that I can throw in my purse without having to find a separate brush and jar for touch-ups. 
Eyelid primer potion - my HG. Yes, these are the "vintage" bottles, but it was a good price for getting all 4 of these. I won't have to buy another for a LONG time.  These are amazing for getting eye shadows to set and show their "in the pan" colors, and great for oily lids to prevent creasing too!
