EOTD Using Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

I want to start off with apologizing for my lack of posts this week. It ended up being a busy week with me working longer, extra hours due to one of my workers getting sick. It was really worrisome since she was out a day and then came back the next only to have to leave after about an hour and being rushed to emergency. She was there until late at night. I was so relieved when I got informed that she was okay but her blood pressure had shot up really high and she was sick with a bad case of stomach flu. Now I'm worried that my other worker and/or I will end up getting it too. I would get home so tired that I would end up just parking myself in front of the tv or laptop to watch a Taiwanese drama that I've gotten hooked on because of the cute guys. Unfortunately, it's 24 episodes long and I've been doing marathons watching 3 - 4 episodes at a time.

I was lucky to have been able to acquire Urban Decay's 15th Anniversary palette--actually was able to get several.


This is the EOTD that I did using this palette:

Products used:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin
Urban Decay Eyeshadows from 15th Anniversary Palette--Vanilla, Deep End, Evidence
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner



Primed with Sin. I applied Vanilla over entire eyelid, lightly from crease to eyebrow, more heavily on inner 1/3 of eyelid. Deep End is applied from middle of eyelid to outer corner. Evidence is dabbed at outer corner of eyelid and applied at the outer "v" of upper eyelids. I also used it along the upper lashline and outer corner of lower lashline. Blend the colors using a blending brush to soften any harsh lines. Line upper lashline and outer 1/3 of lower lashlne with K-Palette. I lightly applied Deep End over K-Palette on lower lashline.

The colors in this palette are so pretty and I think that one can create many different EOTDs using it. The shadows are typical of Urban Decay's quality in that they are nice, soft and buttery shadows which are pigmented. While this palette is LE, it seems to be more easily available than the still elusive NAKED palette.

Have a great weekend!

I still dream that Naked will be mine:)
Nice EOTD.

@Georgina--I can't wait to see your EOTD's after you receive your palette.

LOL! Well, you are still young unlike me. Watching asian drams for the cute boys is cougar status for me.

@Cristina--Thank you for reading and commenting and for your lovely comment. I hope that you'll be able to get NAKED. It's amazing that it is still a difficult palette to get.

Super late on commenting... but thanks for this EOTD! I wish Urban Decay would leave some of their notoriously glittery shadows out of their palettes, but I still wish I could get my hands on this one! However, I don't wear blues very often, so I'm more than content with my Naked palette!

@K--Thank you for your comment! I think that this palette doesn't have any of the super glittery shadows in it. I haven't played around with all of the colors, so I can't say so for sure.
