Urban Decay Haul and swatches

Sorry for the back to back hauls. I expected it would take longer for my package from urban decay to arrive. I ordered from Urbandecay.com on Monday, February 20th. It was very late at night, and it was a holiday, so I wasn't expecting to get my package until sometime next week. Well, it was processed and shipped by Wednesday and it arrived today, which is Friday! Super fast shipping, especially since, considering I spent more than 50 dollars on the site, the shipping was free. Also, everything was packaged up very securely with tissue paper and bubble wrap, so everything I ordered arrived to me intact. Very happy with them and their processing and shipping times!

Before I go one, I should say that Urban Decay is high end make up and can be very expensive. I had been wanting to try out their line for a long time, but was hesitant because it was so expensive. Well, a couple of weeks ago my husband bought me a palette from their line. The naked 2 palette. I fell in love with it, and it made me want to try even more of their eye makeup. Well, I checked out their website, and while their prices are normally out of my price range, they have amazing sales on their website. So if you are on a budget, like I am, and are always looking to try out new cosmetics at low prices, check out their sale page! Everything I purchased was part of their sale!

As you can see I got a ton of stuff. But all of that only cost me right around 60 dollars. Considering that normally all of that would have cost me twice that, if not more, I am very pleased with what I got from their sale! Let me give you a closer look!

The first item I picked out on the website it the rollergirl palette. The packaging on this one is super cute. It's black and white photos of a girl on roller skates and the label on it is bright pink.It's a box with a magnetic lid. Very sturdy. I adore the packaging.

As you can see above this palette comes with 4 different eyeshadows. The shades of eyeshadow are Woodstock (bright pink), verve (a taupe color), suspect (a shimmery champagne color) and darkhorse (a dark brown). The palette also comes with a travel size 24/7 glide on eyeliner pencil in the color whiskey (a matte brown). Alongside it, you get a mini lip junkie lip gloss in the shade crush (bright pink). Here are some swatches.

L to R: Woodstock, Verve, Suspect, Dark Horse. Below: Whiskey eyeliner pencil

The original price on this adorable little palette was 32 dollars. I got it on sale for 13 dollars. WEll worth the price! The eyeshadows are soft and vibrant and blendable. I haven't used them, other than to swatch them but I think I am going to love them. If you are interested in getting this palette, it's still available! You can find it here.

Next I picked out the Fun palette. The packaging on this one is vibrant, colorful and of course, fun!

Some of these colors repeat from the rollergirl palette, but I really wanted to try a couple of the shades, so I figured I would get it while it was on sale. After all, duplicates of these amazing shadows is just fine by me!

The shadows in this one are: Woodstock (that same gorgeous pink as in the rollergirl palette), baked (a pretty gold), Uzi (a glittery white shade), Sin (a sort of pinky flesh tone frosty color- hard to describe), flipside (a teal color), and psychedelic sister (a beautiful purple.) It also comes with a 24/7 glide on eyeliner in oil slick (a shimmery black), and a mini primer potion, which I am eager to try because I have heard so many good things about it.

L to R: Oil slick eyeliner, woodstock, baked, uzi below: sin, flipside, psychedelic sister.

Originally this palette costs 34 dollars. It was marked down to 16 dollars! It's still available here, if you are interested!

Next, I got the cowboy junkie set. It comes with the midnight cowboy palette and a full size lip gloss! The packaging is purple with gold writing on it. I love it.

The shadows in this one are gorgeous and chock full of glitter so I think that they will be perfect for night time looks!

This palette comes with 4 eyeshadows. Midnight cowboy is a pink champagne color with tons of silver glitter. Midnight Cowboy Rides again is a golden beige with bronze, gold and silver glitter. Midnight Cowgirl is a subtle golden-beige with gold glitter. And Romp is a beautiful deep royal purple. This set also comes with the 24/7 glide on eyeliner in whiskey (I was glad to see that this one came with brown rather than black- I have a ton of black eyeliners already, so getting two brown ones was totally A-ok with me!). As well as all that, this set also comes with a full size lip junkie lip gloss is midnight cowboy. It's a beautiful shimmery nude gloss. This lip junkie lip gloss costs 19 dollars on Urbandecay.com. I got the whole set for 19 dollars, so I got a real steal! The original price of the set, before the sale, was 38 dollars! Here are some swatches

L to R: Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Midnight cowgirl, Romp (this picture does not do this color justice at all- it's beautiful and deep purple) and below that is the eyeliner in whiskey.

I can't wait to use the shadows in this palette. I love that they are neutral shades but packed with glitter. I don't own anything like these. Want to snag this palette? You can get it here!

I forgot to take photos of them with their respective sets, but here are swatches of the lip glosses and the primer potion

Next, I got the 24/7 shadow pencil stash

This is a set of 5 travel size eyeshadow pencils. They are fat, creamy pencils that apply line an eyeliner, but dry down to an eyeshadow consistency. I plan to use these both as bases for other eyeshadows, as well as on their own. I've never owned anything like this, and normally I would check out a drugstore brand before comitting to them, but I got this set for 12 dollars, when it usually runs for 34 dollars. That gets broken down to just over 2 dollars a pencil. Definitely worth it to try these out, because I love them. The colors are Delinquent (dark purple w/bright purple sparkle), Rehab (brownish-taupe), Juju (frosted taupe), sin (shimmering pinky-champagne) and Clash (bright turquoise w/silver sparkle). I love these They are still available here.

The last thing I picked up was just a single eyeshadow. It's a mtte eyeshadow in the shade Chronic. It's a beautiful green. This normally would cost 18 dollars. It was on sale for 3. I couldn't pass it up at that price! It's still available here.

My order also came with two free samples. I got a tiny sample of their afterglow glide on cheek tint in quickie, and a sample of their original primer potion also

Over all I am very very happy with my experience with urbandecay.com and all of the products I purchased. I think I got a lot of really great deals. i apologize for such a long haul, and if I sounded like an urban decay advertisement. But I really do love these products judging by the little experience I have with them. And I wanted you all to be able to take advantage of the sale if you were so inclined, which is why I didn't use these products more before doing this haul. I didn't want anyone to miss out on the deals! Are you familiar with urban decay products? Have you ever purchased off their sale page? What products should I try next?
