You know me: there's a better chance of hell freezing over than me buying an expensive eyeshadow palette. It's not that I wouldn't want to have it, I just don't think it's worth spending all that money on. Besides, I have more important things to pay for - like vet bills for example. When I got this Urban Decay Vegan Palette as a gift, I thought I was gonna faint. I couldn't stop staring at it and I didn't want to touch it. Just to keep it intact. Swatching was out of the question at that time.
Two green shades, gunmetal, brown, bronze and golden shade, 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil and mini eyeshadow primer. Everything you need for an eye make up look (everything besides mascara). And all those cute animals on the packaging... it just can't get any better.
Then the whole Urban Decay going to China thing happened. At that time I didn't feel bad about swatching the palette anymore. Hell, it's just make up, right?
Yes, the shadows are quite well pigmented and easy to work with, but they're not THAT special. I can make a look like this with my 4€ palette and noone will know which one I used. With a good base, everything lasts 12 hours on me. And since I'm already talking about base - I doubt I'll be buying UD Primer Potion again. I think I'll just get myself that cheap ELF primer, because it works wonders on my sister's eyelids. Yeah, I said it. I don't think I'll be needing you, Urban Decay.
Just to clear it up: I like to buy cruelty free products, but I'm not focusing on those products only. Deal with it.
