I really enjoy the holiday collections, seriously, I do.  The amount of product that you get for the price is sometimes completely worth it.  Of course, Urban Decay, one of the favorite cult classics, has come out with a collection as well, and it won’t be the only one. 

The collection features the new and limited edition Vice 3 Eyeshadow Palette which is available now for $60.00 either online at Urban Decay, Sephora and Ulta, and high end department stores.  The palette features 20 eye shadows and also some never before seen shades.  Each shade has a metallic finish.  The shades are arranged in columns: neutrals on the left, jewel tones in the middle, and all the smokey tones in the right.

Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder

Ok, I’m actually really excited about this powder, like really excited! This baby here will cost you $29.00 and it is also available now. The collection only has two: Luminious and Aura. Luminous has more of a paler sparkle than Aura, which is more of a pink-peach with gold sparkle. And let me correct myself, it’s not sparkle, it’s super fine shimmer.

I went on to Google and found some swatches so you can see the difference.

 You can definitely see the difference, but they’re both just lovely!

What do you guys think of their collection so far?  I am on the fence about their Vice 3 Palette as well as their eye liner as I prefer gel liners.  But I am really ecstatic about the Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder! They sort of remind me of MAC’s Soft and Gentle but even much more beautiful, but that’s just my opinion. Let me know what you guys think!
