Now available @ Sephora! It is an eyeshadow palette with six black-based eyeshadows (0.04 oz. each) and one travel-sized Zero 24/7 Liner (0.03 oz.). It also includes a miniature-sized Eden Primer Potion. The palette retails for $36.
This glittery black compact with mirror features a daring palette of five black-based, glimmering, jewel-toned eyeshadows, and Urban Decay’s darkest matte black eyeshadow, Black Dog, for adding dimension like never before. The set comes complete with a travel-size 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero and a mini genie bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion, so your color stays deep, dark and alluring all day and night.
Urban Decay Primer Potion ($29.00 for 0.85 oz.) is now available in the Professional Size, which is the same famous UDPP in a squeeze-tube instead of the curvy genie bottle. Same product, new packaging. I don’t have a lot of details on it at the moment, but I know that Sephora has a limited amount, while Urban Decay will start carrying more on its own website soon.
I did notice that the tube is very… squeezy. There’s a lot of give to the tube, and you’ll need to squeeze it with some pressure to squeeze out the product. This isn’t a criticism, because it allows for more precision and less waste; you won’t squeeze out too much. I just received this tube on Friday, but I did not experience any separation in this tube (which is my annoyance with Too Faced Shadow Insurance) — can’t tell you for sure, since it’s likely a new tube and all that. But so far so good!
I’m sure the packaging change (or at least the availability of it–again, still waiting to hear more information) is a welcome one for a lot of UDPP fans. I was never bothered by UDPP’s original packaging, but I’ve also never been near finishing one!

Urban Decay S&M Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is smooth, buttery shade of silvered gray with a part frost, part metallic finish. It’s nicely pigmented, and it applies incredibly evenly with little work. It’s the type of shade that works well for a very classic smoky eye. I also like to pair it with navies and bright blues for something a little unexpected. S&M is part of Urban Decay’s permanent line-up of eyeshadows, so it’s available year-round as a single shadow. (If you’re not much of a pot person, Urban Decay shadows are as easily depotted as MAC and will fit into MAC palettes as well.)

Ease of Use: 4/5
RECOMMENDATION: If you’re in need of a metallic silver-gray, S&M might be a shade for you.
