Behold, My Early Birthday Present

Guys, please welcome my very first Book of Shadow. Yes, I finally got my hands on this latest Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows.

So, I have a lot to celebrate in these first months of 2010. Well, with my graduation and my birthday is coming, I think those are enough reasons to give myself a nice present. And it's not just another birthday. It's my 25th! It's an important number, you know. That means, I'm old enough to get married! Haha..

Anyway, this book just arrived yesterday. I almost ran out of it. But I found one ready stock at Pinkymiki. I was so excited! I haven't even tried the eyeshadows. And my birthday is not until the end of the month, I thought I'm not gonna post this entry until then. But I'm just too excited, I can't wait to share the story on my blog!

For you whose already familiar with Urban Decay Book of Shadows, I'm sure you guys already know that this palette usually comes with sixteen eyeshadows, two 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils and Primer Potion in mini size.

As for Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows, the palette has pretty much the same material. But since this palette is made especially to celebrate the launching of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie, the eyeshadows in this palette have been renamed to match to movie theme. They said, "Our shadows are topsy-turvy in Underland... Find their real-world names here":
  • Underland (Flash)
  • Alice (Painkiller)
  • Oraculum (Baked)
  • Queen (Last Call)
  • Chessur (Chopper)
  • White Rabbit (Polyester Bride)
  • Wonderland (Maui Wowie)
  • Curioser (Grifter)
  • Muchness (X)
  • Midnight Tea Party (Midnight Cowboy Rides Again)
  • Vorpal (S&M)
  • Absolem (Homegrown)
  • Drink Me, Eat Me (Sin)
  • Mad Hatter (Twice Baked)
  • Jabberwocky (Oil Slick)

I know Urban Decay and Book of Shadows are famous for their glittery eyeshadows. Judging from what I saw, seems like Chessur, White Rabbit, Wonderland, Curioser, Midnight Tea Party and Jabberwocky have the most glitters, compare to the others. We'll see how those colors will appear on lids. Oh, and the two 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils that included in this palette are 'Zero' and 'Flipside'.

If you watched Kandee Johnson's video about this palette and saw those cute 'Drink Me' chocolate sauce and 'Eat Me' mint pills, it kinda burst my bubbles a little bit knowing that these cute bonuses aren't included with the palette. But it doesn't matter. This palette is too cute, I forgot about those bonuses immediately. Haha..

I haven't got a chance to play with this palette, up until now. But I really can't wait.
