OMG your voyage powders are making me drool! so pretty - both powder and compact! do you actually use them or just have them for collection? because i think i'd be scared to use them! hee hee!

post #34 of 9285

They are gorgeous, aren't they? I use some of them, but I actually have back ups for those (some just refills, some with compacts), so I still get to see the pretty patterns. How awful is that?!? In my defence, I've only ever paid full price for one of them that was a LE from 2004, the rest I got for around half price. I fell in love with the butterfly one when it came out in 2008 and started collecting them.

Is anyone planning on buying any of the cream shadows from Flighty? Temptalia gave them a really bad review, they look awful alone. I don't think I'll buy any of them, I have a few longlasting cream shadows already and Mac Paintpots, so I'd much rather stick to them. Got Greed UDPP in Florida, it's really pretty! :)

 

Oh and Lou, I'll post some pictures later, but I still need to unpack half our stuff and put the washing out on the line. At least I'm not jetlagged now, even managed to wake up before 9 am! My husband nearly missed the royal wedding, he slept until nearly 11!

oh well if you have back ups then that is ok! one to look at and one to use right?! hee hee! :) oh and i'm not buying any of the flighty shadows. i am being sent one so that i can have a play and see if i can get it to work and then review it - but not splashing any cash on them myself.  they seem like mac didn't put much thought into them :(

 

and yay for seeing pictures! i can't wait!

 

post #36 of 9285

I've put some pictures in my album if you're interested. I also posted pictures of my huge haul on my blog (everything put together does look like a massive haul, I have to agree, I did go a bit crazy, lol).

Wow, what a haul!

 

Those Physicians Formula things are really pretty, and I love the necklace top left in your blog picture too

 

post #38 of 9285

Thanks. :) I'd been eyeing up those PF powders and blushes since I saw them on Musings of a Muse, they are so pretty, and quite cheap too. And the necklaces were only like £3 each, it was insane! Oh and the Sketchers were buy one get one half price, so I got two pairs (one pair is Tone Ups) for just £60. That's like the price of one pair.

I am totally confused... is Fashion Flower in May or June?  I am only asking because Fashion Flower is released in the US right now... we usually get ours right after the US or at the same time.  It seems a bit strange to get it over a month later but to get Surf Baby before them.

 

Also, what is the release date for Packed To Go?  I am soooo want the Warm Smoky Eyes Palette... it is gorgeous.

it always happens with the june collections - the states get a break in june but the uk delay us so we end up with a collection to fill the gap. packed to go is also june :)

post #43 of 9285

I didn't even know about Packed to Go until I read Temptalia this morning. werd.gif

Looks like ASOS have stopped selling Urban Decay? Anyone know anything about this?

post #45 of 9285

It seems UD has pulled out of a few places, first Boots now Asos. But don't know why.

all i heard was that they want to stay in department stores so they essentially look more high end. which i think is silly because the more places they are sold the more people will buy!
 

 

post #47 of 9285

Meh. Have they gone exclusive with Debenhams?

And also, they just have to pull out of boots just when the sephora shades launch.. I wanted that hot pink glitter liner! :(

Selling location can be an important part of brand image, but still this doesn't quite make sense. Boots has much higher-end brands such as Chanel and Dior, and ASOS has NARS. I have a feeling it may be more of a profitability issue (unless they have fallen out with Boots and ASOS on trading terms both at the exact same time, which seems unlikely).

I actually prefer buying from Debenhams cause they generally have more offers. I got the pencil set for £49 because of 10% off they had at the time and a £5 beauty club voucher.

yeah to be fair debenhams is where i buy most of my ud too :) mainly because it's the only place in my city that sells it!

 

post #51 of 9285

I was just wondering where you guys purchase MUFE products? I saw temptalia's post on the new eyeliners and they look great!

i buy them from here - http://www.gurumakeupemporium.com/ and they told me they will have the liners in stock in about 2 weeks :)

 

post #54 of 9285

Unfortunately the only UD counter near me was in the Boots in Kingston. :( Now there's no UD counter anywhere in this area, unless I go into London, which is not very easy for me. Poo! I was lucky to buy the Sephora exclusive shades in Florida, except for Woodstock because I'm planning on getting the Skater Girl palette, but that wasn't out in Sephora yet. :( Never mind, I can always order it from Debenhams when it comes out.

Oh bugger thats no good! Atleast you can order from Debenhams - and I think HoF (or was it John Lewis...)

 

post #56 of 9285

HOF for sure (don't know if JL sell UD), but I might as well order from Debenhams since I have the Beauty Clubcard and also their credit card, so I get points on both and free delivery no matter how big the order is.

Thats true - don't think I've ordered off HOF! 

 

OMG I'm so bad I bought the NARS Illuminator last week in Laguna and it did absolutely nothing for me and now I want MUFE Uplight! It costs £25.50 + delivery charge making it alot more expensive than NARS! I'm just obsessed with the idea of glowy skin in the summer but Laguna did not help me achieve this!

i ordered from HOF a couple of times. shipping was ok - took a couple of days, well packaged items (i have bought ud stuff, elemis and nails inc stuff) and they seem well stocked most of the time too. they could do with doing a beauty points card though like debenhams!

Uplight might be a better bet then? I've heard its meant to be really good and it's liquid so no streakiness! Do you know which one you're gonna get yet?
