Unboxing & Review—Sephora 500-Point Urban Decay Reward

Hi, everyone! In the last post, I detailed my haul from the 20% off Seohora VIB sale, which involved both an in-store trip and an online order. (Also, can I just say how awesome the new Sephora app is?!) I redeemed some of my Beauty Insider points through Sephora’s Beauty Bazaar online, and I was not disappointed—it always seems like the rewards are better online than in-store, but maybe that’s just me.

This 500-point reward I chose is the mini Urban Decay  Urban Addiction eye shadow sampler palette. I didn’t really expect it to come in fancy packaging, but it came in its own pretty box just like the 500-point Make Up For Ever reward did, complete with black crinkly paper cushioning inside.


The palette itself is gorgeous—it has four different shades (Backdoor, Righteous, Backfire, and Fireball) and comes with a mini double ended brush (just like the full-sized palettes do. And though the case isn’t made of a hard plastic or metal like the Naked palettes, it does appear to be durable and well-constructed from a quality cardboard and has a mirror inside the lid..

Here are swatches of each color:


The shadows feel creamy and apply so smoothly, of course—would you expect anything less from Urban Decay? And they are so easy and fun to blend.



I used Backdoor in the crease/outer corner of my eyelid, blended it outward with Backfire, applied Fireball to the lid and blended it to the crease, and used Righteous on the brow bone. It gave a  much smokier look than I anticipated, and I’m very pleased with the outcome!

Have you used the Beauty Bazaar for your Sephora rewards, or received this particular 500-point reward? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
