Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol. 3 With Swatches

During The holidays I received 2 gift cards to Sephora. Since the Urban Decay Naked palette is out of the question I decided I would try the book of shadows. I have always wanted to own it and having the power of a gift card in you hand makes you feel great ! So here are some pics because it is absolutely beautiful it lights up inside and everything. It is a sparkly little dreamland. I also did swatches of the colors too because they have been treating me well ;)

Swatches above are as follows :

Perversion- A jet black eyeshadow (matte)
Uzi -A metallic silver/white color with a LOT of sparkles ! Personally too much sparkle for me.
Loaded - Emerald green with just enough shimmer one of my faves
Kush - Metallic green with sparkles
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again- A golden beige with slight bronze undertone
Last call - A pale plum shimmer

Since I could not fit 16 eyeshadow shades on my forearm here is the continuation :

Swatches above are as follows :

Rockstar - On my skin tone it comes out as a purple brown I have read others describe it as a reddish purple. I do not see that at all but it could be my skin tone.
Money- A light blue/green shimmer
Haight -teal shimmer (another one of my favorites from "The Book")
Maui Wowie- Golden color with silver sparkles/glitter

But wait there's more :

Bordello- Pink with purple undertone
Radium- Bright blue (blends amazingly)
Snatch- Shimmery pale pink
Suspect- Beige with sparkles (sheer)
Psychedelic Sister - Bright purple slight shimmer

My personal favorite because it is one of those "Go To" shades if you like neutrals


It also comes with the Primer potion and two 24/7 glide on eye pencils in Zero (black) and Ransom (purple)

Hope everyone likes the swatches !! It is one of my favorite books ! haha

I won a Carla Mancini Clutch !!

Let me be the first to say that I have won/received and been given things to review on twitter. Some of which were not "great quality". So, I would just keep quiet about those said item(s). In fact I actually think I receive a lot of things some of which I am yet to have time to write an in depth review about. With that said, I was lucky enough to WIN a handbag from Carla Mancini on their twitter/facebook contest.

It is a mini clutch made of vintage Italian fabric and a gorgeous sequin pattern. The quality of the bag is beyond what I expected. It truly took me by surprise. Everything, down to the stitching and the sturdiness of the bag has impressed me. And I have used it almost every time I have went somewhere special since I received it. I like its versatility and its ease to make every outfit seem simply more put together. I am really happy to have found this brand and will keep you updated on any purchases I make and keep me updated if you get anything too !

Here are a few pics of the bag I received :

It came all wrapped up in this pretty dust bag
