I was in Sephora at the beginning of February looking at the Urban Decay 24/7 shadow pencil in "sin", thanks to Leesha's foundation routine video. Towards the end of the video, she applies some of the Urban Decay shadow pencils and they look beautiful.
So I was looking at them in Sephora and they're $20 each. They still are, both on Sephora and Urban Decay. I managed to refrain from making a purchase, thank goodness because ...
On 2/6, Urban Decay was on Haute Look and they had a set of the 24/7 shadow pencils for $12, marked down from $34. (Turns out you can buy them direct from the UD site right now for the same price.)
As far as I can tell, these aren't minis. I think it's a set of full size pencils.
Now, I'm not great at math. And from the sheer amount of hauls and reviews on this blog, it should be apparent I'm not particularly thrifty either, but ... why on earth would anyone pay $20 each for pencils when you can get a set of 5 for $12? Anyway, not my problem, I guess.
So I gleefully picked up the set of pencils from Haute Look. And waited. And waited. I love Haute Look, but seriously, waiting for the stuff to arrive is torture. I ordered on 2/6 and they showed up today, 2/22, which isn't terrible I guess. (Double yay because guess who has two thumbs and bought a bunch of Stila stuff from Haute Look today? Yeah. This guy. Metaphorically. As the blog title says, I am a girl.)
Anyway, they're beautiful. I'm in love with them.
