People have been going straight up bazoodee over the UD Naked palette!!! They can’t keep it in stock fast enough!! It’s selling like hot cakes and it has gotten rave reviews!! It’s not LE people!!! I will get this – eventually!

Anyway, UD is bringing out another palette inspired by the great city of New York!!

This is the limited edition Book of Shadows Vol. III aka UD loves NYC palette.  Their holiday (gasp!) 2010 offering contains 16 shades, of which 7 are brand new (or exclusive to the palette) and the rest are repromotes or part of the permanent collection (yuh know Smog and Zero were born to be in ah palette!).  A mix of brilliant jewel-toned purples, blues, greens, and neutrals, that spells fall, but they would go well with your summer shades to a depth to a look. Ah really feelin’ Money (looks just like the US dollar bill), Haight (a gorgeous, deep bluish-green) and Kush.
