celebrate alice with urban decay stash wars!

ladies, the most anticipated day of the DECADE is almost here!

tomorrow, urban decay’s limited edition alice in wonderland book of shadows will be available on their website for purchase! there’s been a lot of chatter on the twitterverse about people ordering as soon as the clock strikes midnight tonight. since UD is on west coast time though, i’m thinking that’ll be something along the lines of 3 am for me here on the east coast, so i’ll just wait until i wake up 🙂

in celebration of alice, elessa, aka pursebuzz uploaded shots of her UD stash to twitter on tuesday and soon after, the urban decay stash wars were born! you can see stash photos on her blog…i’m the second stash photo, i think i’m holding down the competition, no?

since the response has been so crazy and fun on elessa’s blog, i decided to feature some shots of my urban decay stash and some of my fave UD looks i’ve created!

here’s the whole stash

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, UD cream shadows are *amazing!* one of my all time favorite products, it made the spring ’09 collection for me. and yes, i have every single color in the range. each is stunning either alone or as a base, builds easily ranging from sheer color to stunning vibrants AND are easily maleable with varying brushes for a precise look…i even use them as eyeliner! these are a must have in my collection – try one, try them all!

here’s a look i created on my friend aurelia primarily featuring sphynx cream shadow, a sparkly cool pink
(scuse the poor quality photo)

who can live without urban decay’s crowning glory, 24/7 pencils? a rainbow of colors, smooth formulation and waterproof staying power!

the liquid liners have the same staying power as the 24/7 pencils and they’re all shimmery. gorgeous!

heavy metal liquid liners…how i love you! you can use them for a subtle swipe of glitter along the lashliner or go nuts and paint them all over your lid! i’ve done just about anything and everything i can think of with these and i can’t live without them! can you taste the rainbow?

urban decay’s most well known and popular products – their shadows! all highly pigmented, ranging from matte, shimmery and glitter finishes. the matte and shimmer finishes are finely milled with stunning payoff, the glittery shades pack as much punch but with a bit grittier texture.

if you’re just starting out in the world of UD, palettes are a great way to build your collection! amazing value and recently palettes have been coming with mini primers or liners!

clockwise: ammo, show pony, wallpaper, get baked

and lastly, urban decay’s unsung heroes: the lipsticks! in a word: ah-may-zing!! from my first swipe of hotpants, i was hooked! like all other products, highly pigmented, available in a range of colors, but what truly stuns me is that they don’t feather at all! i barely even need to line with these and they smell sweet like creme brulee. i’m loving confession and jilted right now, but revolution is my must-have, go to lipcolor! i was even quoted on bellasugar pimping it!

there was a question over on pursebuzz‘s blog about how well urban decay matte shadows perform – here’s a look i created with electric (MY FAVE!) and half baked as a highlighter, using stagedive heavy metal as a liner

another vibrant eye featuring painkiller and snatch shadows from the show pony palette and zero 24/7 liner

and lastly a look i wore to the glamour kills tour featuring my FAVE ud products: cream shadows and revolution lipstick! the cream shadows are delinquent, asphalt and moonshine – here’s the face chart!

i hope this satisfies everyone’s UD craving in Alice anticipation!
