Deal alert! Sephora still has Urban Decay’s Anarchy Face Case in stock, on sale for $29. This is such a steal considering the original price was $44. This palette includes five eyeshadows (four new, one re-release), two blushes, one highlighter, a travel-size eye pencil and full-size lip pencil.
I recommend this palette for the amazing value at the sale price. Currently this particular shade of Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color, Scandal, is available only on Urban Decay’s web site and retails for $20. I don’t wear a lot of bold lip color but this one is SO PRETTY. The 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion (one of my all-time fave products) is a travel-size but according to my math is approximately a $13 value. Even if the shadows don’t seem enticing (which is understandable as four of the five are glittery!) the lip pencil and eyeliner make this worth the money, think of everything else as a bonus. Additionally, I was impressed with the quality of the blushes- they’re so smooth and pigmented, a real find since UD only sells the Naked Flushed palettes and no individual blushes at this time. The down side is I felt like the eyeshadows don’t wear quite as long as other UD products I’ve used in the past and they’re mostly glittery with quite a bit of fallout.
I’ve seen other bloggers venture into depotting everything from the case, which can be tricky because of the mirrors on the top of both sections. For now I’ll keep it all together- I wouldn’t say this is the most versatile palette I own, but everything works in harmony for a fantastic evening look. This was a holiday release so these colors are ready to party! Pick up this little steal and stash it in your desk drawer to transition to happy hour.
Here’s a quick look I did for going out to dinner with friends last night! I used all the shadows except Provocateur, the glittery mauve.
Moved my bangs so the eyeshadow is more visible. 🙂
Eyes: Fray (matte mauve) from lashline to brow, Vaporize (shimmery taupe with silver glitter) on lids,
Redemption (dark frosty gray with silver glitter) in crease and on lower lashline, Revolt (metallic silver with silver glitter) on inner corner with a dab on the browbone, eye pencil in Perversion, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eye primer in light/medium.
Cheeks: Quickie (matte hot pink) blush and Craze (sheer shimmery gold) highlighter.
Lips: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in Ozone, Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion (not currently available, I picked up two of these on sale for more than 50% off over the holidays, so I have a feeling it’s about to relaunch with a reformulation or new packaging), Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Scandal (metallic raspberry pink).
Coming up: my Sephora order should be delivered today, which means I’ll have my first look at the Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick from the new Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Radiant Orchid collection! OOH…AHHH 🙂 It’s finally up online and I’m just drooling over the pretties, y’all. I’m also working on a post showing off my first-ever mini haul from my color junkie soul sisters at Sugarpill Cosmetics! Plus, the Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette launches on urbandecay.com in 5 days! I’m still on the fence about when to buy…
