Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Collection
This holiday collection from Urban Decay is mostly a gift collection, I believe that there is a handful of single products but most of the products are palettes and sets and I also believe that there is a pretty strong emphasis on eye makeup products. With Urban Decay completely revamping one of their best selling products, I can see how much they would want to emphasis it in one of the the biggest seasonal collections. I have still not tried out the new formula, I haven't bought much from Urban Decay lately (odd considering that last year I bought tons of stuff from this company). I want to try out this new formula but I haven't bought much over the past few weeks since I have been trying to use a few things before the holiday shopping season begin, I am thinking that it will be time to change that with one or more of these palettes!
Here is the Urban Decay holiday collection!
24/7 Double-Ended Glide-On Pencil - The two most convenient shades ever to share a pencil barrel - rich brown and our award-winning black - back by popular demand. If you’re already a fan of our 24/7 Eye Pencils, this is one little gem you won’t want to miss. It packs the amazing staying power and unbeatable glide of our creamy 24/7 Glide-On formula into a compact, two-in-one format. A master of convenience, this travel-friendly duo features the two most convenient shades ever to share a pencil barrel—rich brown and our award-winning black. (After all, who doesn’t need these super versatile basics in their beauty arsenal?). When we first introduced our original Naked Palette (maybe you’ve heard of it?), we created this pencil to go with it. Eventually, we loaded the Naked Palette with a brush instead, but people BEGGED us to sell the pencil on its own. This is now the ONLY way you can get these essential shades together in one pencil. With their amazing staying power and unmatched color payout, our 24/7 Eye Pencils are one of the things we’re known for. Creamy and waterproof, this highly saturated formula glides on and stays put no matter what you put it through. (Trust us, we’ve tried it all.). You’ll definitely want this set for yourself, but don’t forget that it makes a great gift too—so be sure to stock up. It’s even packaged in a clear outer box to showcase the two must-have shades inside. No wrapping required!
- Whiskey - rich brown
- Zero - zealous black
24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil Set - Two double-ended eye pencils, four must-have shades and our award-winning 24/7 formula. What more could you want (Except for two sets, of course.) If you’re already a fan of our 24/7 Eye Pencils, this is one little duo you won’t want to miss. These are colors that anyone can wear, but they’re anything but basic. You get four vibrant, must-have shades in two pencils (including our award-winning black), plus a Grind House Double Barrel Sharpener. Talk about an amazing value! We’ve even included one shade that’s totally new—Sabbath, a matte navy-blue shade that’s exclusive to this set (and destined for cult status, if we do say so ourselves). When we first introduced our original Naked Palette (maybe you’ve heard of it?), we created a 24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil to go with it. Everybody went insane—especially for the Eye Pencil! Ever since then, people have been BEGGING us to bring it back. With their amazing staying power and unmatched color payout, our 24/7 Eye Pencils are one of the things we’re known for. Creamy and waterproof, this highly saturated formula glides on and stays put no matter what you put it through. (Trust us, we’ve tried it all.) You’ll definitely want this set for yourself, but don’t forget that it makes a great gift too—so be sure to stock up. It’s even packaged in a clear outer box to showcase the four vibrant (and super versatile) shades inside. No wrapping required!
- Sabbath - matte navy blue
- Zero - zealous black
- Corrupt - medium brown
- Stash - dark green with gold flecks
Ocho Loco 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set - A set of EIGHT FULL-SIZE 24/7 Eye Pencils in a rainbow of intoxicating shades (including four totally new ones) - at this price, you'd be crazy not to get it! If you’re a fan of our 24/7 Eye Pencils, you’re going to go nuts over this collection. It features an incredible lineup of eight full-size pencils in a rainbow of intoxicating shades—four that are totally new, one that was previously only available in another set and three dark, sexy best-sellers, PLUS a Grindhouse Sharpener. We HARDLY EVER do a set with full-size Eye Pencils, so this set is sure to sell out fast, especially at this price—$59 for eight full-sized pencils (a $152 value)! Everyone in the UD offices is DYING to get their hands on this set, and it’s easy to see why! With eight amazing shades, you can create whatever look you’re in the mood for—from nakedly neutral to boldly bright to smoldering and sultry. In fact, the color range is so insane that we just had to dub this set Ocho Loco—which is Spanish for “crazy eight.” With their amazing staying power and unmatched color payout, our 24/7 Eye Pencils are one of the things we’re known for. Creamy and waterproof, this highly saturated formula glides on and stays put no matter what you put it through. (Trust us, we’ve tried it all.) Oh and did we mention that this set is totally giftable? It even comes in a clear outer box to showcase the insane color range inside—just slap a bow on it and you’re done!

Oh my goodness! There are some many items that I want to buy from this holiday collection! The Urban Decay collections have been slightly weak over the past few seasons but this group of products puts that trend to a quick end - this is a great series of products! My first choice is the famed Vice palette, I am so excited to see that all of these shades are brand new. I am so used to getting multiples of the same shades over and over again every single time that I buy a new Urban Decay palette and now I can see shades that are brand new to me. If I can only buy one product from this collection, this would be my choice!
From the rest of the eye shadow palettes, I really like the Feminine palette. I love these neutrals and they will work very well with my eye color and skin tone. I can see myself using these shades for the rest of the fall and then all through the winter. The Fun Palette is too colorful for me to pull off, I will be skipping over it and the Dangerous Palette is nice but I don't really love it. Onto the liners, I already own the new double-sided pencil, as I have the original Naked palette and don't need another one at the moment. That being said, it still is a great eye pencil and I would recommend those who don't own the original palette to purchase this product. The Ocho Loco pencil set is also too colorful for me to use on a regular basis, I will skip over this one. The last piece that I want from this collection is the Smoked 24/7 Glide-On Set, I love these eye liners and adding six more shades to my collection is a dream come true!
I love this holiday collection and Urban Decay has set the bar very high for the season!
