So I posted something about the UD loves NYC Book of Shadows. I actually thought it was a glorious rumor. Until a few weeks ago, Urban Decay sent a few of them to the beauty bloggers that i follow religiously. I was at awe, I just point blank said "I HAVE TO HAVE THAT!" Being a big fan of UD, I have the Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows and i love it. The palette itself is an absolute collectors item but its great for everyday but i digress.
Anyway since the palette is a tribute to NYC, Urban Decay has decided to do a pre-launch for everyone in the New York City area. Be that as it may, I love in Queens, I was just a few train stops from the event which makes made absolutely LUCKY!
So i obviously HAD to get a palette. I went with my sister and she was a sport waiting FOREVER lol
Anyway enough blabbing from me and on with the picture :)
This was the line, At this point we had waited for about one hour already and this was the point where we turned the corner. It wrapped around the block and the line was HUGE. My sister under-estimated the power of what make up does to people and she didnt think that there was going to be a line. Well the sight of this proved her wrong LOL
Once you got in, They lovely UD girls directed you to the registers where it was manned by more UD staff. Here's one of the columns filled with the palettes.
There was a UD girl who assisted everyone and gave us a palette in a Sephora basket. Heres mine :) I wanted to take a picture but she was busy lol.
Props for my sister's awesome hand modelling :)
They were also offering some free make-overs and a make up consultation with Eric Jimenez! (Who is UD's retail director and an amazing make up artist). He was so nice. He was giving out lip junkie samples to the people waiting which i thought was SO thoughtful This is the Make Over station. and the fabulous guy in the vest is Eric :)
Hope You Guys Are Ready To See Some MAKE UP PORN! <3
