Yay!!!!! I spent at least two weeks stalking Urban Decay, Ulta, and Sephora since I learned of the release of Urban Decay’s 15 year anniversary eyeshadow palette. These colors were simply craveable.  Finally last week it was available at Sephora. I bought it right away (and got a dr. jart+ beauty balm as a premium sample!).  Yesterday it arrived on my front porch. Yay. So what did I do? Tried to restrain my excitement. After opening the box and getting rid of all of Sephora’s careful packing I came to the case. It is about 6 inches by 6 inches and a gunmetal chrome color. Along the edge is a pretty floral vine design.

After opening the case I was confronted with 15 (get it 15 year anniversary?) full sized shadows of 0.05 oz each which totals 0.75 oz.  All of these are shimmery except for the one matte – blackout. Midnight rodeo and Midnight 15 are both shadows that contain glitter. The remaining 12 are all simple shimmers. To me – and no ones photos do these colors justice including mine – the entire center column is almost irridescent.  In my opinion every color is super wearable except perhaps junkshow.
