Urban Decay Vault 2017, Worth it?
The new Urban Decay Vault is out!!!
For the past 3 year I have been on the fence about their Vault palette set, it’s so tempting gosh! You can save about $50, that it’s almost like buy 2 get one free!. Yes, very tempting because honestly, the shades are gorgeous, but the main question is, is it worth it?
If you are buying them for yourself I would have to say NO! But If you are willing to sell one or two it is a great investment. Let me explain How:
The 3 palettes provided Naked 1, 2 and 3 purchased separately add up to a total of $174.50 after tax, while the Vault set totals $124.20, that equals a total saving of $50.30, that is about a 29% in total savings. Great savings!
Now, putting savings on the side. How much would you use these Palettes? The shades are relatively similar and don’t forget, makeup expires.
If you love Urban Decay Cosmetics, why not just get your favorite naked palette, add some color with the Electric palette and enhance the night look with the smoky palette.
Why is this a better choice? well if you go on Sephora.com you will notice that the Electric and Smoky palette are on SALE!!. Let’s do the math, If I was to choose Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette $54.00 + Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette $27.00 + Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette $24.00 that adds up to $113.40 after tax, I would say that’s a great deal because of the savings and variety of shades.
Now how is this set a great investment? Well, well let me tell you! If each palette retails for $54.00 and you are basically getting one for free, why not sell it? This palette is sold on Ebay and Amazon close to the retail price.
Bottom line it is up to you!
