UD Book of Shadows Vol. III - NYC

Ever since the Sephora early release of Urban Decay's new Book of Shadows Vol. III, in late August, here  in NYC -I've been wanting to get my hands on it! Urban Decay eye-shadows are produced every couple of seasons or so in a palette showcasing their shadows and become a great way to try out the highly pigmented eye-shadows without splurging on each one individually. Although some shadows are part of UD permanent collection, there are a few that are exclusive in each volume, and these volumes, too, are limited release. Unfortunately, I've missed out on Urban Decay's past Book of Shadows and collections, but I was able to get my hands recently on their Naked Palette which came out this spring/summer (you can read the review here) and I can tell you personally Urban Decay does not disappoint!!!!

This UD Book of Shadows Vol. III is NYC themed (which made their NYC premier release quite fitting) and is eccentric and wild as NYC itself!

The inside is like a Pop Up Book
(plus it lights up when you open it)

OOOO, the pretty colors :)

So pretty much this is the overall look of Urban Decay's Book of Shadows III- UD <3 NYC. This limited palette contains 16 shadows (which I'll list below) and two 24/7 eyeliners (Ransom - a purplish blue, Zero -black) and a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion. The set retails $54 USD and as of 9/25/10 it is still available on and perhaps in stores, but on Urban Decay's website it is still out of stock. It's full release is expected to be October 1st. If you love it, I recommend you go after it now before it becomes to late!!

The littlest thing to lighten me up!

Ahh, I know it's been a while but fret not my loves- I have some great things in store for you all!!! I'm the type to either go hard at something or don't go at all and so I put Beauty A La Mode on a little hiatus so I could gather some great stuff for it's lovely followers!!!

I have a couple of great reviews coming up, especially that blog review on the wonderful Sigma Makeup Brushes I did a youtube video on. If you haven't checked it out you can click here.

Today though, in this quick little post, I wanted to show you the latest find I picked up at this new beauty website I found, - They offer great beauty products that are either limited edition or discontinued items at a fraction of their retail price.

Estee Lauder Tom Ford Collection
       The Face Highligher- 01 Colquillee  

This face highlighter is by far, one of the best I've tried to give you that nice, bright sheen look above your cheekbones, cupid's bow, or wherever you like to highlight. Unfortunately Estee Lauder does not produce it anymore since it's a limited edition- but it can be purchased at for a great deal (Originally $45 - on their site, $16.95!) As an added plus, I think it's packaging is adorable and I love the color of this compact!

I'm planing to get a vid up showing you how versatile this highlighter is and how great it works on any skintone, so keep an eye out on that.

In the meantime, I'll share with you a promo code for 10% off your first purchase of $30 or more on the beflurt site - enter NEWBIE at checkout.

As always, lots of love
