I decided to pick up a few things for the love of Purple from Urban Decay’s Friends & Family 2011 Summer sale. UD ships SUPER Fast, as I got my order yesterday.
I picked up the UD Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara (black of course!), Lipstick in Indecent (palest peach), Stardust eye shadow in Retrograde (dark purple with iridescent sparkle), and Deluxe eye shadow in Freakshow (deep purple with red sheen).
What can I say? I’m a sucker for purple eye shadows and peach lipsticks.
Did you pick up anything from the UD Friends & Family Sale? If so, I’d love to know! If not, the sale ends tonight! Use the code FFSUMMER11

looks like really pretty colors.
i need to start trying more of their products, but all i got is the 24/7 jackpot set of eyeliners. figured it would be a good start.
That’s a great place to start. The 24/7s work well for me.
I ordered Cannonball too!
Indecent looks like a color I could definitely see myself wearing! Gosh, I need to find a drugstore dupe!
I’ll try to see if I have any close in my stash, too. I don’t think I do, though.
I passed- last time I bought Urban Decay (NYC Book) I was sorely reminded of how much the brand disappoints me The branding is totally down my alley, but I feel like I just don’t get the use out of the products that I should to justify the prices…
I’ve actually reigned in my makeup spending a lot lately…not that fiancé gives me the props I deserve for doing so
Pretty picks though, can’t wait to see them in action!
I’ll probably be reining in spending soon, as other priorities are popping up. I do like the UD stuff that I have and use Props to you!
Your purchase looks awesome!
I participated in two rounds – the first day of the sale and today, the final day.
On Tuesday, I picked up two of the Jet Set 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner sets, one in Stash/Bourbon and the other Oil Slick/Rockstar. I also got the Midnight Cowboy Junkie set (the purple eyeshadow, Romp, in that set looks so pretty I couldn’t resist), the 24/7 Jackpot eyeliner set (at this point, I’m good in the eyeliner department for perhaps the next 3-5 years, lol) and a backup UDPP in Greed in the new squeeze tube. And, yes, they DO ship lightning-fast! I received my order Friday. Hooray!
Then this afternoon, I went back for more as I just *can’t* say no to a good sale. ;D Today’s order was all eyeshadows and all of them are from the Deluxe line: I got singles in Freakshow, Underground, Shag and Scratch. Last week I went to Sephora specifically to swatch a bunch of UD products on account of this sale and came away very impressed with how Underground and Scratch looked on the back of my hand.
I wish UD would run more F&F sales nowadays but I’ll take them anytime even if it’s just once a year.
Sounds like a great haul! Make sure you cap the tube of UDPP tight, as I’ve heard they can dry out.
I eyed the cowboy set, but really only wanted that purple so I skipped it.
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! we never get these sales in the UK.
That sucks I wonder why not.
Don’t worry I’m in Canada so we aren’t included either. The sad thing is to enter contests that happen sometimes on the UD facebook page people have to sign up for the UD email newsletter and that only caters to people in the US with the online sales. So I always get to see the great sales that I’m not included in
I want to boycott UD but I love their stuff too much.
ooh i hit reply before id finished lol…
i love those purples and i really want to try that ultra waterproof mascara as i am after the ultimate one.
Please let me know what you think of that mascara.
Will do I’ll be reviewing it.
Retrograde is pretty nice, I’ve got a sample pan of it, but I don’t find myself using it that often. I think it’s because I’ll have a palette out most of the time I do my eyes, and I don’t think of it.
I still haven’t used most of the cream shadows I nabbed off of the last UD HauteLook appearance, either.
Speaking of purples, have you tried Fishnet? It’s probably my favorite of their deluxe shadows. I’m a sucker for anything with duochrome, though.
Yes, I’ve tried Fishnet and like it I love duochromes.
Indecent is so beautiful!
It’s such a pretty light peach.
I got the black pallet and four more of the 24/7 shadow pencils.
Yay! I bet you’ll have fun with them.
I picked up the XL UDPP in Sin and a lip junkie lipgloss in Crush!
