    Great Review. I wondered how big it actually was! The box is really nice but I’m on the fence about the actual shadows. They look nice but I’m unsure if there will be a BOS being released soon after this since I could only afford 1 UD product [saving for MAC’s fall collections]. There were rumours it would be in August or September. Have you heard anything about a BOS Christine?

  2. Just ordered it. I couldn’t stop myself…I didn’t really try, though ;-P. Thanks again, Christine!

    The blue shades are so pretty and the packaging… so nice.

    Bought this few hours ago when it was first released on the website. I can’t wait! I wanna try ’em NOWWW 😀

  5. Riah

    I just ordered through UD.com, I can’t wait to see it in person. I will be wearing junkshow first, then deeper!

    Christine, did swatching give you any sense of which shades might have fallout issues? I get nervous when I see “Midnight” in anything (ditto “Cowboy”) because of the fallout. I’m on a no-buy but this is soooo tempting! The browns, that greyed purple and the teal are making it hard to resist!

    • Hi Mariella,

      Please read my review of the palette :) Thank you!

      • Mariella

        Christine, I did read the reviews but missed it – I was looking in the indiv. shade descriptions. Found it now though…and good to know it’s not the problem I feared it might be.

    Thank you for the review! I bought it because I collect the palette but I would have got it anyways. Tainted is the one I’m looking forward to most, I’m disappointed to hear you say it’s not a major anchor for the palette because I think it will really bring out green eyes and look great for my skintone. Half Truth also looks amazing, almost like AC/DC from BOS Vol. 2, which I use all the time. Thanks again for getting the jump on all the other blogs! You seriously rock.

    Thanks for such an in-depth review! I’m tempted but I barely use the UD palettes that I have. I don’t even use Naked that much but I might cave if it’s still in stock in a few weeks. Omen may be my favorite.

    Does anyone have tips to get this palette when you’re not living in America, I live in the Netherlands and I would love to have it :) A lot of sellers on Ebay are not shipping any palettes to the EU… I only have 2 Sephora-stores in this country that sell UD and they had no clue to what I was talking about, arrgh!

    I ordered mine at 6 a.m. before I went to work!

    • Celina

      Thanks for the reviews! I didn’t have any colors that were similar to about half of the shades, plus it’s so cute! Just waiting for it to get here :)

  11. Thu

    Done! It is MINE!!! You had me at “15 brand-new, never-before-seen shades.”

    I’m really excited about this fall collection – so much new stuff! (Summer was less impressive – two of the bigger items were re-releases.)

  12. I ordered it… I couldn’t help myself… restraint went out the window at first glance… I would have rather ordered it from Sephora and got V.I.B points but I didn’t want to chance not being able to get my hands on 1 aka The Naked Palette fiasco… LOL

    Thanks for the great review and swatches. I’m really excited about this palette and I think it’s a great value. I was sitting on the fence for the 15th Anniversary 24/7 eyeliner set for the longest time because no matter how great of a deal it was, it was still almost $100 for 15 eyeliners (not that crazy about coloured eyeliners either) and I felt a lot of regret when it was no longer available. However! I feel like I can make up for that now with this set of eyeshadows, since I’m pretty sure I will use all of the shades! $55 is a price I can live with, and I’ve yet to skip out on any of the previous BoS and this will make a great addition. Do I really NEED more eyeshadow? I’m sure the answer is no, but I’m really interested in Junkshow and Evidence(was so close to getting Fishnet, Woodstock and Frigid during FF sale last week). Thanks for posting this so early! I’ll have to wait for Sephora to have it since UD doesn’t ship to Canada 😛

    Great review! I can’t decide if to just order now or wait and buy at Ulta. I’m sure I’ll have a chance to get it there at 20% off bc that’s how I got my Naked, BOS III and even the 15 ann. liners set! Love my Ulta but I’m nervous when they’ll get it.

    I called yesterday and the girl knew about it bc they have seen flyers of it but didn’t know when it’d come in. She said they’ll have new items on July 23rd bc that’s when the current flyer ends and a new one begins (a week later).

    Decisions, decisions!!!

    • I imagine it won’t be too long after – I’m just sure that UD wanted to get it on their own site before everyone else (I would also, presume, they make more $ selling directly than through other retailers, who surely take a cut).

  15. Anna

    I got mine yaay!! Thanks for the review, amazing as always :)

  16. Brie

    I woke up this morning to find this video on my YouTube subscription queue and went straight to the UD website afterwards to order this 😛 Thanks Christine for your always informative and punctual videos/reviews! Just so you know though, my wallet despises you LOL!

  17. Annie

    It sold out right when I went to check out! GAH! I saw it online this morning. My mistake for thinking I should finish my hw before I go order it -___-”

  18. Lteefaw

    Great idea Monica!!! Wait until it’s at Ulta and use the 20% off coupon.

    • Ann

      at my ulta the 20% coupon doesn’t work on prestige cosmetics (this includes pretty much all highend stuff). bummer i know. hope it works at yours! :)

    • Ivette

      i thought coupons couldn’t be applied to prestige brands? that’s what they tell me everytime i try to use them with brands like UD…

  19. Tried ordering mine but it’s sold out already. Bummer, hope it comes back in stock soon.

    • Kim

      I know! I thought about it for too long and now it’s sold out! I’m crossing my fingers that it’s back in stock soon. (I have a feeling a bunch of poachers are buying this to resell for ungodly prices…)

  20. Meredith

    As soon as I saw your video I HAD to order. I’m SO excited!

  21. Urban decay has the best makeup. especially eye makeup. i’m still such a beginner when it comes to eye makeup, this site is quite helpful.

    • mary

      ITs available again on Urbandecay.com and sephora.com with free shipping on either site. On sephora you can get it with a free urbandecay mini lipgloss in midnight cowboy with promo code UDGLOSS. on Urban decay you get a free sample of sample of the eyeshadow primer no promodtion code needes. I just ordered mine about an hour ago!!

  22. Andrea

    Half Truth looks like either Romp (Cowboy Junkie Set) or AC/DC (in the BOS 2). What do you think?

    Thanks for the review :)

  23. Tigress

    Mine came in the mail today, I’m so excited!!!
