Haul: Urban Decay

I got my first Urban Decay item ever this morning! I ordered this from their website and it came in the mail today. They have recently come out with 3 palettes to showcase different styles and personalities, and this their new Dangerous Palette (the other 2 are their Fun and Feminine palettes). Each palette costs $34, and I actually thinks its a really great deal.
This is how Urban Decay describes this product:
"We like to describe everything we do as "feminine, dangerous, and fun"... but you appear to be rooted on the wild side. These six intense, bewitching shadows help your inner "Femme Nikita" come out kicking. Feed your dangerous desires with Greed, our gilded eyeshadow primer and a naughty purple eye pencil."
Top: Haight, Mildew, Virgin, Rockstar Eyeliner
Bottom: Oil Slick, Rockstar, Gunmetal, Greed Primer Potion
As you can see it came really nicely packaged. Each of these palettes come with 6 eyeshadows (which are a tiny bit smaller than their regular shadows, but nothing major), a miniature Primer Potion, and a mini 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner Pencil. This palette comes with Haight, which a gorgeous teal color, Mildew, a dirty green with brownish undertones and gold sparkle, Virgin, a shimmery beige (this one is from the Naked Palette), Oil Slick, a black with silver glitter, Rockstar, a deep eggplant shade, and finally Gunmetal, a dark grey with silver glitter. All of these shadows are incredibly smooth in texture and very pigmented. The palette also comes with Greed Primer Potion, which is a neutral shimmery gold color, and an eyeliner in Rockstar, which is again an eggplant purple shade.

I'm really happy with all the colors in this palette. I'm actually pleasantly surprised with how much I like Mildew, since normally I am not a big fan of greens, but I think the brown undtertones make it a bit more wearable. I don't know, maybe my eyes are seeing things. I'm also really excited to try out the primer and the eyeliner. While I like my MAC Painterly Paint Pot, it is not a primer, per se, and I can only get a couple of hours worth of wear before it creases. I tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance a long time ago in a sample size, but I don't remember if it worked well for me or not, and I never repurchased, so it's about time I give Urban Decay's primer a try. And I've heard these eye liners are awesome for the waterline.

L to R: Haight, Mildew, Virgin, Oil Slick, Rockstar, and Gunmetal

I'm going to be making looks with this soon, when I feel up to wearing makeup. I'm feeling kinda crummy today.
