Urban Decay FLOP

When I got the email from Urban Decay announcing the Alice in Wonderland shadow box's return I was so Jazzed! After reviewing the product page on their site my lust for the box faded away.
Urban Decay came back out with it's Alice in Wonderland Shadow box but they did it really shitastically! They brought it back as part of a set. Their creative editor hand picked these items to compliment the box. The items I hear aren't that great to begin with but the real kicker is the price. When you hear "package" you think " Cool special pricing". This one doesn't.All the products included in the package price out to be the exact asking price for the package. Because of how popular the Alice shadow box was UD is taking advantage of this and adding items which you HAVE to purchase in order to get the box, unless you want to buy it on Ebay and, whew... are those prices steep!
The Alice UD Shadow box package sells for the low, low price of
Originally $52
So I thought I would list the colors that are in the box with the actual names of the shadows. If you don't already know all the shadows are from their normal line. For the box they just made them smaller and put them in a ubber cute box... You can buy most of the colors in the box in larger sizes (1.5g) as opposed to the (.08g) and pay $221. $10 more for the full sizes and twice the product. The only two colors that differ is Painkiller, and Mushroom. Mushroom can be purchased in cream form and Painkiller is apart of the Show Pony, and Preen shadow boxes.

I give Urban Decay an "S" on this one, cause I am calling Shinanigans!
