Persephone Minerals and Urban Decay "Naked" Palette

Just found out by way of Phyrra that Persephone Minerals has just started a Sailor Senshi collection. WHUT. I AM SO EXCITED. I used to run home from school every weekday to watch the dubbed versions on Cartoon Network. Then when I discovered the subtitles on Ebay, I immediately purchased the entire set plus all three movies.

Hated Rini. Seriously, she was freaking irritating, yo.

Anyway, I've been meaning to purchase from this company for a while now. This company has just been pushed it all the way to the top of my to-buy list.

First up in the collection:

The Sailor Mercury Set

The image belongs solely to Persephone Minerals. I just added color names to make it easy.

5 beautiful shades of blue all based off of of Ami. From the Etsy store:

PRINCESS MERCURY - Princess Mercury is just the faintest touch of super shimmering blue. Very light & soft. It is inspired by the dress of Princess Mercury.

AMI - Ami is a deeper, black based blue with blue microfine glitters. Makes a lovely liner as well! It is inspired by Ami's haircolor ;)

MERCURY CRYSTAL POWER! - Mercury Crystal Power is an amazing DUOCHROME shift from gold to bright blue. It is chock full of sparkles of gold and pink. Mercury Crystal Power is inspired by the pink & gold of the her wand, and the transformation sequence that turns Ami into Sailor Mercury!

SAILOR MERCURY - Sailor Mercury is a nice medium-dark blue with sparkles of aqua and gold. Sailor Mercury is inspired by the costume of Sailor Mercury. The main color being a medium blue with accents of aqua(her bows) and gold(tiara).

MERCURY AQUA RHAPSODY! - Blue with various shades of blue sparkles,white sparkles, & aqua sparkles!! Sparkles, sparkles and more sparkles! ;) I recommend this as either wetlined or used with a sticky primer for the most dramatic effect! It can be used dry but it has those slightly bigger pieces of glitter that can have a bit more fall out than the microfines. This super sparkly shade is inspired by her attack in the form of Super Sailor Mercury!

Ingredients and eye/lip-safe information is listed at the store. Go forth and colorize.

And then there was...

Urban. Decay. NAKED. Bow. Chicka. WOW. WOW.

I need your opinions. Should I get the Urban Decay "Naked" Palette or no? I just got a notification in the email that UD was stocked with the palette again. The only reason I'm hesitating is because my horoscope said:

"Try not to go over any spending limits today, no matter how tempted you may be."

WHUT do you mean, oh wise Astrology.Com horoscope??

(Yes. I'm aware I am being irrational.)

So...should I? What are your thoughts? I've read a lot of positive reviews but I'm wondering if there's anything that maybe kept you guys from purchasing it?

(I may actually wait the full 48 hrs - it's the time period they've given for you to purchase the product - so that I can see what tomorrow's horoscopes says. Haaaaaa. I will beat you Astrology.Com.)

Edit: Turns out Astrology.Com is being vuuury persistent about this no spending thing. It says this today: "You shouldn't trust your ATM receipt -- or even your online balance -- for the time being. Something may be pending, or you might just have an unexpected expense coming up in the very near future." Assholes. Well it's not like I can purchase it anyway being that when I tried this morning, UD's website gave me an error message. Boo.

Edit #2: Okay. I finally ordered it. This is how I beat you, Astrology.Com.

I say Sailor Mercury set...the colors are SO pretty and I'm having an intense internal struggle over whether or not to get it!

The UD Naked palette...I don't know, it feels as though many of the colors can be duped? Neutrals, d'oh! But I think it's an amazing addition to have in any make up collection. Jealous!

Hi, I'm Natsumi (Suki) by the way (:

Hi! Nice to meet you Suki!

I know, I'm having the same dilemma. I was wondering if I should wait for everything to come out at once or purchase it so I can say I have a Sailor Senshi eyeshadow collection, etc etc. Ponder ponder.

I don't have anything UD in my makeup stash and I totally agree that the neutrals can be duped. Which I think is why I'm sort of just cocking my head at the option and going "hmmmmm." More ponderings.
