newest edition to my make up family ♡

I couldn't believe my luck as my lovely boyfriend and i wandered into House Of Fraiser about a week ago. As soon as i walked in i saw a big sale sign - as anyone does right? - and headed straight over only to find the amazing Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette reduced from £39.00 to a whopping £19.50! That's impressive if you ask me - sadly i had no money but Alex (my boyfriend) completely came through for me and lent me the money!

If you haven't seen this palette before then get ready to be amazed...

Firstly just look at this amazing packaging! It's a gunmetal colour with UD in purple 3D jewels ... oh you do get me on your packaging Urban Decay!

If you've not fallen in love already i can't believe it - every single colour in this palette is highly pigmented and absolutely beautiful! I will get use out of all theses colours - obviously some wont be used as frequently ... Junkshow, Deep End & Evidence (don't get me wrong i absolutely love them but they're quite bold!) - So even if it was £39.00 i would have happily paid that!

I've known about this palette ever since it's been out but every time i got paid i completely forgot to purchase it so it was meant to be when i saw it in the sale.

I thought i'd swatch a couple of my favourite colours - Like i said i do love them all but i've not had it for long and i've been ill for about 5 days so i've not really been able to use it very much!

♡ Half Truth - a gorgeous metallic purple that blends amazingly and looks lovely as an all over lid colour with a touch of 'vanilla' to blend it out. An easy purple smokey eye is the perfect use for this eyeshadow.
♡ Midnight Rodeo - a lovely bronzed chunky glitter. I was quite worried about this colour when i first swatched it as there is a lot of glitter running through it and i thought instantly 'hell-o fall out!' but it doesn't fall out and it is so pigmented i can't even explain
♡ Flow - a lovely peachy shimmery tone that's perfect for highlighting or easy everyday make up just swept all over the lid. I've probably used this colour the most as it's very simple and easy to work with
♡ M.I.A - who doesn't love a dark brown glittery/shimmery eyeshadow? Well i absolutely love this colour and i have been loving seeing lots of brown smokey eyes recently. They're very easy to do and this colour is perfect for the outer corners of your eye.

I absolutely adore this palette and now i'm feeling better i am so excited to create some more looks with it! 
Have you got this palette? If not would you buy it or are the more daring colours a slight put off? XO

p.s - this was the last one they had in stock so naturally i HAD TO have it!
