Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. III

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. III

Sure we’ve all got our different styles (usually not including Carrie-style hotpants and tutus), but just like what we love about NYC, this Book of Shadows is a melting pot of color. The ribbon pull drawer reveals 16 natty eyeshadows, deluxe-minis of our award-winning 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Zero and Ransom, and a travel size Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Inspired by the city, its diversity, and the fact that 8 million people each have their own story, Book of Shadows Vol. III is a tribute from the ultimate California beauty brand to the people and stories that make NYC the apple of our eye. The pop-up book-style palette is loaded with hand-illustrated depictions of the city that never sleeps. We give you glitz and glam alongside characters from all walks of life living amidst the LED-lit (yup…this palette lights up!) landmarks we all love.

Palette contains 16 eyeshadows:

  • Bordello Purpley-pink with gold shift
  • Kush Bright green
  • Loaded Deep emerald/black
  • Money Silvery pale green
  • Radium Bright blue
  • Rockstar Deep eggplant with metallic base
  • Suspect Oyster with dimensional shift
  • Haight Shimmering, mermaid blue (Permanent)
  • Psychedelic Sister Purple amethyst (Permanent)
  • Snatch Peachy-pink with glitter (Permanent)
  • Last Call Plum punch (Permanent)
  • Maui Wowie Medium gold with silver glitter (Permanent)
  • Midnight Cowboy Rides Again Golden beige with bronze, gold, and silver glitter (Permanent)
  • Smog Deep coppery bronze (Permanent)
  • Perversion Matte jet black (Permanent)
  • Uzi Metallic silver with big iridescent sparkles (Permanent)

Also included:

  • Ransom 24/7 Eye Pencil
  • Zero 24/7 Eye Pencil
  • Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Travel-size)

Availability: The palette will retail for $54 and be available this holiday 2010 at Macy’s, Sephora, ULTA, and However…

    i can’t wait for this! i wish they would make another midnight cowboy rides again shadow MINUS THE GLITTER!! it’s such a pretty color, but the glitter is so annoying :(

  2. R

    how long will this palette be availiable for? also does anyone know if it has already come out in the uk because i have seen it on the debenhams website but im not sure if it is out or not.

  3. cupcakes

    I AM IN LOVE. Hope this isnt as hard to track down as the naked palette was!

  4. Jamie

    Heard they’re releasing it after Labor Day (this/next week) for preorder. Palette released in October. Any truth to this rumor?

  5. karagail

    I CANNOT wait for this book of shadows! I am SOO excited about it! Shouldn’t be too long now! 😀

  6. for someone who already owns bos 2, which one would you think has more unique / better shades and is more worth getting, the aiw palette or this one? i currently have 2 and the aiw but i’m thinking i could swap it for bos3 or just waste another 50 and have all three, lol

    • I really like the BoS (including AiW) palettes in general, even if I don’t always love all the colors, because they’re a good deal. They just are. If you’re a UD fan or love colors, they’re always worth it. I don’t think I’d swap away AiW, if only since it’s well worth more than the BoS. But with the AiW palette, I believe all of the shades are permanently available, so…. but yeah!

    I’m already picking looks….ouu Kush actually looks pretty cute, and I LOVE Last Call, I’m glad it’s included. (:

    I have heard that the drawer in this BOS III slides out completely. Is that true or is there a malfunction to someones BOS?

  9. Ashley

    When will the BOS be available instores in Canada?? Anyone know?

  10. Dinitchka

    FYI: Both Sephora and Ulta have this on their websites for ordering, now.

  11. Nolette

    Ugh, all I want from this is Suspect because it’s a PERFECT base/nude color for me. Any idea if it’ll come out on its own?

  12. Olivia

    How do I get it to turn on?

  13. Jodi Gordon

    Where can I purchase this awesome product- where they ship internationally
