Greetings from Singapore! I don’t plan to go on and on because I haven’t filled this baby up with new Urban Decay eyeshadows just yet, so for now it’s less about the product and more about a certain issue surrounding the brand. Being in Singapore though I’ll make sure that changes in the next few days and blog you guys some awesome stuff! I didn’t buy this here in Singapore, this arrived as part of my House of Flair order which arrived almost two weeks ago.
These Urban Decay Build Your Own palettes were/are for a limited time being sold for $18, pretty much the same price as a single newly formulated Urban Decay single eyeshadow. These customizable 6-pan palettes are lovely for traveling and give you the freedom to design your own palette and pick your own shades from the newly reformulated batch of Urban Decay single eyeshadows.
It comes with a single default nude eyeshadow shade, “Walk of Shame” (kind of like MAC Brulee) which, being so named, is somewhat of a sick coincidence considering the fact that Urban Decay as a company has recently been dealing with lots of criticism for recent reasons and a few lame, grey statements. I’ll wade just a little into the “politics” surrounding that. Before I continue please note that this is not a SMEAR campaign. I like the brand, Urban Decay, and am willing to forgive mistakes they make that I feel will eventually allow them to grow as a brand. I just don’t get overly worked up over cosmetics in that sense, I am merely stating my thoughts. Read more to get my full opinion.
