And yet another 500 point reward worth redeeming at Sephora! This set is so hot that it already went out of stock online!
Urban Decay Urban Obsessions is the newest (and possibly hottest right now) 500 point reward from Sephora. I honestly just received my set last night so I didn't have time to play with it yet. I just wanted to post photos as soon as possible so that you can decide whether it's worth redeeming your hard-earned points for (500 points is a lot of points after all!).
Here's what the outer box looks like front and back:
On the back side, there is a small tab that you pull out to reveal the Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It comes in a one-time use peel-off sample.
Inside is an eyeshadow palette containing 4 neutral colors and a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. On the box it says that 2 eyeshadow shades are exclusive but there may be a mistake here. I know Guilt is, but the other three shades are not. Skimp is in the Naked2 Basics (review); Bust and Oil Slick you can buy them in single pans ($18 each). Unless “exclusive” means you can't buy them individually, then Skimp is the other exclusive shade.
Skimp is a pale nude satin, Bust is a pale sable brown satin, Guilt is a pale pink frost, and Oil Slick is a black matte with silver micro-glitter.
- Skimp and Bust are smooth and offer good and buildable color payoff.
- Guilt is unfortunately really pale and doesn't show up pink at all on me; all I see is a silvery frost finish. It's also a little crumbly, too, because the texture is so soft.
- Oil Slick is well-pigmented but feels slightly dry and gritty upon application. The silver glitter is beautiful, though!
Zero isn't the blackest black (for blackest black, try Perversion; $20) but I think it fits perfectly with the theme of the palette. It's a medium black that is not too harsh and the color payoff is buildable. It sets quickly to a long-lasting and budge-proof finish. See comparison swatches with other 32 Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils here.
As I mentioned earlier, this set is no longer available online even though it just came out less than 48 hours ago! If you really want it, try calling your local Sephora store to ask for availability. I know my store still had plenty in stock when I called this morning! :)
