Most Wanted Beauty Box: Urban Decay's Book of Shadows III

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Every holiday season for the past three years, we've been way excited about getting our paws on Urban Decay's Book of Shadows—a goth-lite pop-up book chock full of the year's hottest eyeshadow colors. The 2010 NYC-themed edition does not disappoint—the pop-up LED-lit landmarks are festooned with 3-D illustrations and images of the city's hipster denizens. The kit includes 16 eyeshadows, deluxe-sized minis of the brand's amazing 24/7 glide-on eyeliners in Zero and Ransom (that's black and purple to non-fanatics of UD), and a travel-size version of the company's killer eyeshadow primer potion.
