Wow, that sounds like a lot of money. What's included in this delivery? Is it a whole makeup kit or just the palette? I checked it out at Ulta (the best makeup store in my area) and found an U.D. naked palette for $48 online. I don't know what it would cost to ship to S.A (or if they even ship outside the U.S.)., but that's a lot cheaper than $401. FYI, Ulta offers free shipping for orders of $50 or more.

Urban Decay is really good. I love their pencils and have a whole set. You could also check Sephora, but I like Ulta better.

hi isy,
I live in the UK, home of Urban Decay fan base i reckon. The price you quoted is extortionate and they are defo extortioning money!! The actual price of the naked palatte in UK is approx £24.00 right now on ebay . I sell Vintage perfumes and clothes and usable make up ive grown out of on ebay and i'm sure postage to you wouldn't be more than £12.00 for that kind of item, probably less.

Urban Decay eyeshadows are generally very good, They are known for their dazzling colour and special do al colour '' Urban Cowboy Rides again'. I used them for my Wedding parties and my wedding day ( I wore Purple). I just sold my big volume box as i wasn't makeing much use of it. (sorry there).
BUT the naked is not particularily distinct in that you can get very similar colours and textures from 1) MAC 2) Too faced 3) Bobby Brown and if you find these still too pricey then try Bourjois for budget quality nakeds.
If I was you I'd get on ebay and spend a bit more than £24.00 and buy a Volume box, try volume 2 or volume 4 as they have amazing colours and enough 'naked' to look stunning. You could get it cheaper, and if they have already been used, don't be put off, they take ages to use up completely and a wipe with a babywipe soaked in rubbing alcohol will reassure against bacteria.
The Wonderful thing about Urban Decay ( and Too Faced) is that they put these longlastiing quality shadows in pretty and practicle compacts for on the go, but seriously check out bourjois. Hope this helps you.


......gota get my face on to face the world at large

I think you can find some better priced ones in an Online Beauty Store,I suggest that you search for them.Rather than spending that much.

It is a lot of money, Its roughly a third of my tuition fees for the year at university!!!!! And its just for the palette,no extras.I will check out the Ulta website and hope its cheaper, coz there is no way I can afford to spend that much on 1 eyeshadow palette.

Good move. And let me know if I can help. I shop at Ulta a lot, but mostly at the store. It sounds like it would be cheaper to hand deliver it to you. Also ck out the Urban Decay site too just in case...,default,pd.html
