As mentioned in my last post I have wanted to get my hands on this product since I heard about it, so on Monday I was delighted to discover that my local Boots had some in stock and bought it on the spot (missed out last year due to assuming that there would be some left closer to Christmas - I learn lessons). I can now see what all the hype is about, it is amazing.
The set has 16 eyeshadows, 2 eyeliners and a primer. 7 of the shadows are limited to the set and the other 9 are available in the full size version from the regular line. Most of the eyeshadows are shimmery and 5 of them are glittery (Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is extremely glittery whereas Misdemeanor has a very subtle glitter to it, the rest fall between these two). In keeping with the rest of the UD eyeshadow range, they are highly pigmented. Most colours are represented in the set (purples, greens etc.) and since it has the eyeliner and primer it is excellent as a gift or to take on trips/holiday etc.
I noticed that one of the Limited Edition colours is called AC/DC, UD used to have an eyeshadow of this name about 8 years ago but it was more like MAC's Beauty Marked in terms of colour and glitter. This AC/DC is a shimmery purple and bears no resemblance to the old one (incase anyone remembers the old one and thinks it'll be the same).
The eyeliners are mini versions of the 24/7 liners in Zero (black) and Bourbon (brown). The primer is a mini version of the famous UDPP and there is also a mirror and a booklet in the box.
It might be obvious but I am kinda in love with this product, Great for anyone who has few eyeshadows or has some of the bigger sizes and wants the limited edition ones .
Swatches to follow.
