Urban Decay Book of Shadows III NYC Palette

I've fallen back in love with my Urban Decay Book of Shadows III NYC Palette, I hadn't use it for a while but when I found it it remind me why I loved it so much. As you can see from below it is very much loved and used. The palette has 16 amazing colours with only two not suiting me. It is Inspired by the glimmering lights and iconic landmarks of New York City.
The colours have beautiful pigmentation for all day wear. I also believe it is Limited Edition.

Shade Breakdown

Loaded (sparkly emerald green)
Kush (green metallic with silver glitter)
Rockstar (deep red-purple with metallic base)
Money (metallic light green)
Bordello (pale pink-purple with shift)
Radium (bright blue)
Suspect (sheer sparkly beige)
Snatch (pale peach with golden sparkle)
Psychedelic Sister (vibrant purple)
Haight (deep teal)
Perversion (matte black)
Last call (Plum colour)
Uzi (metallic white with chunky silver glitter)
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (golden beige with glitter)
Smog (deep coppery bronze)
Moui Wowie (golden silver)

Perversion: Is a charcoal black and my all time fave, perfect for the smokey eyed look.
Uzi: I use this lightly to make my smokey eyes look glittery
Loaded: Is in fact green but comes out more black/green.
Kush: Is a beauty shade of green.
 Midnight cowboy rides again: This colour is well loved as you can see, it doesn't show up much on my skin which is perfect for when I don't want really noticeable eye shadow.
Last Call: I love this deep plum colour. It's beautiful.
Rockstar: This is my 2nd favourite colour. It's a beautiful deep purple.
Money: Not one of my faves, it's a light shade of green
Haight: I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pigmentation of this blue, it's so bright.
Maui Wowie: This colour is too shiny for me. I'd never use it.
Smog: I love this colour too, goes so well with my skin tone. I believe it is in the NAKED palette.
Bordello: This is a plummy pinky colour with a hint of shimmer/glitter. Not my fave but I do like it.
* I made two spelling mistakes *
Radium: A little bit like Haight, high pigmented blue colour
Snatch: This is a peachy coloured shadow, I can imagine it would fade pretty quickly.
Suspect: This is like Snatch, I'd imagine it to fade
Psychedelic Sister: Is a vibrant purple, this picture doesn't do it justice.
Product: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 4.5 out of 5 (due to the bulkiness)
Quality: 4 out of 5
Overall: 3.5 out of 5
Would I buy it? I don’t think so.
Price: It was a gift but you can find it on Ebay. USA / UK
