Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol II - Review


So i brought this from Boots for £29.00 (i think)... It is amazing :). I will be posting a few looks from this palette on youtube soon as i get my laptop up and running.

Urban decay have really upped there game since the Last Book Of Shadows. They have put in two of there 24/7 eye liners in shades Zero (black) and Bourbon (brown). I never tried there liners before but i will definitely be using these and buying from there 24/7 range. They glide on so smoothly. In this palette they have put 8 EXCLUSIVE shades which are AC/DC, Nylon, Mushroom, Sphynx, Jinx, Homegrown, Misdemeanor and Perversion. Along with these were some of Urban Decays best selling shades which are, Gunmetal, Sellout, Ecstasy, Midnight cowboy rides again, Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside and YDK.

I will go into more detail of each shade for you so you get a better idea of them:

  • AC/DC - Is a dark plum with a sheen of dark silver.

  • Nylon - Is a frosty bronze with glitter in. (Fave absolutely gorgeous).

  • Mushroom- Is a taupe/browny with maybe a small hint of grey.

  • Sphynx - is a lightly brightened cotton candy pink with an icier pink sheen.

  • Jinx - Is a teal/ fresh blue that applies very smooth and pigmented.

  • Homegrown - Is a grassy coloured green with a gold green shimmer.

  • Misdemeanor- Is a dark blue/green shade with slightly more of a green shimmer.

  • Perversion - Is a matte black (well it did have a very slight silver sparkle).

  • Gunmetal - Is a frosted grey/silver with silver sparkle.

  • Sellout - Is a light champagne/frosty nude shade with high pigment as it is so smooth and applies brilliant.

  • Ecstasy - Is a shimmering medium purple with maybe a slight pinky/purple shimmer.

  • Midnight cowboy rides again - Is a very very glittery textured light taupe brown / champagne.

  • Twice baked - Is a dark chocolate brown nearly matte with a slight bronze shimmer (very slight).

  • Half Baked - Is a metallic coppery gold with a bronzy shimmer.

  • Flipside - Is a mermaid green/teal slight frost finish.

  • YDK - Is frosty/shimmery cool toned brown.

The palette also includes a mini primer potion again aswell (awesome stuff).

What i like about these shades is that they are so well pigmented and apply very smooth apart from the midnight cowboy it falls out more than the others due to the amount of glitter in it ( still a nice shade though). All of the shades are wearable so i will definitely get some use out of each and every one of them. Urban decay have really impressed me here. The only thing i have to niggle at is the fact theres no good highlighter but that's fine if you are using them at home and have other products so its minor.

The packaging is good as it doesn't have the useless pop up thing it has a mirror and a little look book. I personally rarely open the lid anyway. I just use the draw. :)

I love the palette and i will definitely be using these for some looks on youtube. (SOON).
