WANTS IT: Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II

Urban+Decay+Book+of+Shadows+Volume+II+1

You’d think after creating something so incredibly good like the Book of Shadows that Urban Decay didn’t have any tricks up it’s sleeves. Honestly, what could possibly top that incredible palette? I know when I got mine I was doing back flips across my foyer as it was too gorgeous for mere words.

Well….

Urban Decay decided to top that.

Jump ahead for the deets!

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume 2 this is where it’s at baby. If the original Urban Decay Book of Shadows was incredibly awesome this palette falls into the “oh my god” amazing category. With two 24/7 Eye Pencils, Primer Potion, and 8 brand new, limited edition shades of shadow exclusive to this palette obviously Urban Decay has topped the original Book of Shadows with a great new palette, WANT!

Urban+Decay+Book+of+Shadows+Volume+II+2

Inside you’ll find existing Urban Decay Eye Shadow favorites Sellout, Gunmetal, Ectasty, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside, and YDK.

But the real killer?

The new LE shades!

You’ll get AC/DC (deep eggplant shimmer), Nylon (champagne sparkler), Mushroom (taupey-gunmetal), Sphynx (pink sparkle/shimmer), Jinx (bright blue shimmer), Homegrown (bright green shimmer), Misdemeanor (deep teal sparkle), and Perversion (matte black).

The palette is covered in pearly white with a purple foil design! It flips open to reveal a generous mirror framed in exotic peacock feathers. Hiding behind the secret doors is a mini look book. Incredible! The Muse thinks the mini look book is probably one of the greatest things about the palette as it’s a full photo booklet containing photos of Urban Decay’s model, Daniela, using the palette in various looks. I’m always looking for inspiration when creating a look and this book will make it a snap!

Need I say more?

It’s been topped!

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II the Muse WANTS IT!

It’s available now for $48 at Urban Decay.

I know many of you have already begun asking for a review and swatches, I’m working on it and will bring it to you shortly!

Do share…

Accessory Corner: Christian Siriano for Payless

Accessory

Now the Muse wouldn’t necessarily call having your own Payless Shoe Collection fierce. Payless and the fierce realm…well let’s say it’s like comparing apples with oranges.

Never you mind though, the accessory news of the hour is that the new Limited Edition Christian Siriano Shoe Collection has officially launched for Fall 2009 at a Paypless store near you!

Jump ahead for the details.

Honestly, none of the styles appeal to me as they are a tad too middle age crusty for this Muse but the price tag of $34.99-$49.99 does make it fashionably inexpensive couture.

Yay or nay?

Share it!

The Irish Beauty Blog girls have the scoop on the new Bourjois Launch Makeup Removers and Cleansers that release this Fall in the UK. Gawd, I hate that we don’t get any of the good stuff here!

Bourjois+Paris+Makeup+Remover

Here’s the deets:

Bourjois Paris Vitamin Enriched Toner
Bourjois Paris Express Eye Makeup Remover (two-phase formula to remove all types of eye makeup)

bareMinerals+Tutorials+Eyelining+Kit

The Muse generally enjoys bareMinerals Tutorial Kits so she’s all excited about the latest offering from BE which is the new Eyelining Kit!

Jump ahead to hear more about this cool kit for making lining eyes easy and simple!

First I fell in love with the Smoky Eye Kit and than the Rocker Kit captured my fancy and now I must have the bareMinerals Tutorials Eyelining Kit.

This kit includes everything you need to learn how to line like a pro, indeed I need to learn these things. An easy script on a tip card allows you to create a perfect lined eye look in a few simple steps.

bareMinerals Eyelining Tutorial Kit includes bareMinerals sable liner shadow (matte) and minx liner shadow (shimmer). The set also includes a magnetic multi-liner brush with brush pouch. An interchangeable handle has a magnetic bottom for inserting either a flat line brush or a regular thin tip liner brush into it. One brush allows for multiply liner looks!

The kit is available now for $38 from Bare Escentuals.
