Sephora SG Instagram Giveaway: Urban Decay Hamper Review & Swatches

I am so excited to have won the Sephora SG Instagram giveaway and I was deemed “Oz-worthy” to receive a Urban Decay Hamper worth S$100++! I completely went hysterical when I saw my name on the winners Facebook post on Sephora Singapore!

The contest rules were as follows:
1. Get your Glinda and Theodora Oz Palettes.
2. Share your loot and Oz makeup look with the hashtag #disneyozsg on Instagram.

It was so easy so I had to do it and this is my winning entry:

“Now I really feel like Glinda!^^
Love the colours, but sadly they don’t show up on my camera :/
#urbandecay #disneyozsg #glindapalette”

And… An Urban Decay hamper was awaiting me at Sephora ION! The hamper consists of some discontinued items, some travel samples as well as full-sized products. Specifically, I won myself a travel-sized Supercurl Curling Mascara, 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Rockstar, LipLove Lip Therapy in Stung, full-sized eyeshadows in Straydog and Ransom, false eyelashes – Black Velvet and a TSA bag containing foundation and primer samples.
 

The first item that caught my attention was the colourful little pocket container which is the Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Ransom. The packaging is really colourful and it reminds me of the drawings in comics. This product have been discontinued and I’m glad that I still could lay my hands on this cute little pocket eyeshadow. Comes with a small mirror inside.

 

Ransom – Frosted purple/violet with a blue undertone

 

 Next up we have the famous Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Rockstar, which is also found in the Glinda Palette from the Wizard of Oz collection which I have too and the review will be linked here when it has been updated. I love the packaging because it looks like a magic wand (: The formula is creamy and very pigmented. Colour-payoff is great as well and one thing I absolutely love about this eyeliner pencil is that it doesn’t budge when it dries on your skin which really makes it adhere onto your skin for 24/7.

 

Rockstar – Dark metallic purple with a burgundy undertone

 

 Another eyeshadow that I’m delighted to have is Straydog which I already have in my Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Fun Palette. I was hoping that I didn’t get any repeats from what I already have but sadly, I still got one. Nevertheless, it’s a joy to be able to get a full-sized shadow and I refuse to open the pretty packaging because I can still use this shade from my Fun Palette.
Straydog – Metallic brown with copper undertone
Next thing I found inside is the LipLove Lip Therapy in Stung. I was pretty surprised to see this in the hamper because I honestly haven’t come across the LipLove product range at all. I am rather disappointed with this lip therapy because it doesn’t smell nice even though the packaging says it is “Honey Infused”. Overall, the colour is rather sheer and it just seems to act like a lip gloss with an awful scent.

 

Stung – Purplish mauvy gloss colour

 

Another product that I can’t wait to try is the travel-sized Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara. I really hope it claims to be “supercurl” because being Asian, I have stick straight lashes that are super hard to curl 🙁

 

The wand has like little spikes which really make me wonder how is it going to be “supercurling”. Love the curled wand though because it really helps coat each lash with the mascara formula and makes it easier to apply to the inner and outer lashes.

 

Some other products I got are the Black Velvet false lashes which are super long and fluttery! I hope it doesn’t look weird on me or make me look like I have hairy spider legs on my eyes. Black Velvet is indeed pretty but I am still doubtful on how it will turn out on me.
And not to forget the TSA bag that came with the hamper! It would really be convenient to store all the travel make-up must-haves inside when I go abroad for holidays.

 

I have really been so lucky to be winning contests and especially this Sephora one. Can’t wait to enter more contests in future.
