Urban Decay in Australia at Mecca Maxima

This is not an ordinary Friday!  It is, of course, Urban Decay launch day!  Exclusively at Mecca Maxima.

I am a diehard UD fan but I wasn’t obsessed enough to line up at 5am.

But I had some free time in the morning before work today so I popped into my local Mecca Maxima – which is in Doncaster Westfield Shoppingtown – around 11am and found it pretty quiet so I spent aaaaages browsing, swatching and contemplating what to spend my monies on…

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

There’s the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation at $52.  Felt lovely and oh so tempting.

Urban Decay Naked, Urban Decay Basics Palette

And the Urban Decay Basic Naked palettes are ADORABLE!!!  They are ickle, tiny, compact palettes.  They were $42.  I was sorely tempted!!!

Urban Decay black eyeliners
Then there were the eyeliners.  I wanted a new eyeliner which was jet black and smudge-free.  I swatched 3 of them :-

  • 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero $30
  • 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion $30
  • All Nighter Eyeliner $30

They were ALL AMAZING.  Jet black yes.  Smudge free yes.  But I couldn’t decide which one I wanted!!!  ARRGHHH!!!  #toomanychoices

And don’t get me started on the lippies!!!

I wanted ONE OF ERRTHANG – like seriously, who doesn’t?

But I only bought ONE THING…

Urban Decay in Australia, Urban Decay Mecca Maxima

It was the Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush at $35.  I need a good buffing brush for foundation so this beauty came into my basket.

Got given a deluxe sample of their Perversion Mascara – BONUS!!!

I saw a few ladies buying Naked Palettes galore…I had envy eyes! 😛

Urban Decay Haul in Australia at Mecca Maxima

Anyway, may have to convince the husband that I NEED more makeup and cross my fingers that he will spoil me with some UD goodies for Easter or something!

P.S.  If you’re wondering whether it’s cheaper to buy from the US, check out my price comparison post.  There’s really not much price difference!

Did you brave the masses and attend the Urban Decay launch?  Or are you casually shopping online?  And what did YOU buy??

    That’s my nearest Mecca too. But seriously, I can’t justify buying anything at the moment! I still might see if I can go have a nosy around though – you know, just to get the vibe!
    Maybe Christmas. 🙂

    I too love all things UD! Ulta just had 1/2 off their single eyeshadows so I picked up a TON of them at $9 each! Hope you enjoy your new brush! xo Kelly

    I can’t believe it was quiet when you went. I imagined all the stores would be packed! I really want to get a bright eyeshadow palette.

      I haven’t been back since that day because I don’t want to splurge again 😛

    I’m surprised it was quiet when you went at 11!

    I love my Naked Palettes! I also invested in the Naked foundation a little while ago and fell in love with it, so the optical brush is next on my list of things to buy! I’d love to know what you think of it!

      I’ve heard great things about the UD Naked Foundation! Darn, should have got a sample to try it out
