Beauty Spot - Direct from the USA

My sister just got back from two and a half weeks in the States. I only had one request: get me some make up. 

One item in particular:

If you saw my post on Twitter last night, you'll know exactly what it is....

Exciting, yes?

I'm not a beauty blogger, so I'm not going to swatch it up or go into extensive detail (mostly because I haven't had time to properly apply any of it, but here's another picture of it:

A few of the colours on the left half of the palette are actually more gold than they appear in the photo. I played around with it last night and the pigment is pretty good - it goes on smoothly and the colours are lovely.

It cost me $51AUD. I've seen some on ebay going for $85, so I'm pretty happy with that price. Oh, and apparently my sister walked into a Sephora, didn't see any on the shelf, asked the sales assistant and he declared he was "going to take care of her" (but not in a creepy, mob way - more in a very camp male sales assistant way thank goodness) and ran out the back to get a couple for her. Easy peasy!

Oh, and that last colour, the blue at the far right? AMAZEBALLS.

There. How's that?

mialou, it's so awesome! I've only used it twice, and both times the pigment has been really concentrated and thick, with a lovely shimmer. Best part is that at the end of the work day my eyeshadow hadn't blended all together in a mush the way it usually does (but that may be because I actually bothered to put primer on first!)

You lucky thing! I found a really good makeup blog a few months ago with great video tutorials, and the makeup artist only used urban decay. Looks lovely to use

Melanie you'll have to tell me what the website is - I'm always on the lookout for good tutorials!

I really want an eyeshadow palette! I have recently discovered inglot makeup and I think I want one of theirs. Its a shame they are less than half price in the US, so annoying!
