At first I was not interested at all in this palette. However I found it on sale on UD's website and decided heck why not. I'm so pleased that I did take a chance on this palette. The colors are pigmented and easy to blend . The colors are more earthy toned compared to the past book of shadows. Another good thing about this palette is that it includes a black liquid eyeliner, travel size black mascara and a travel size primer potion. I have used everything in this palette and I have no regrets. The colors are great for everyday use whether it's for work or going out at night.
I didn't think I'd get this palette at first, I figured that I had the Book of Shadows III and I didn't need to get the brand new edition. I swatched some of the colors, some of which are similar, but I needed to have it in my life. I got it during the f&f sale and am so glad I did.
It's a gorgeous mix of colorful shades and neutrals so you can accomplish virtually any look. It also comes with a UDPP and a zero liquid liner. If you want to bring something and can look past the thick box, you could be set for a good 2 weeks with all of these shadows.
I got this for an amazing deal on Hautelook a while back and I'm so happy I decided to get it. The colors aren't all neutrals like the Naked palette but they are still SO wearable. I love blending Hijack on my lower lashline for a subtle wash of color if the look I'm wearing is pretty boring/toned down. The only reason this isn't getting 5 stars is because of the horrible and clunky packaging. It's just too bulky; I'm probably going to end up buying a Z/Unii palette and just de-pot the colors. Also the included speakers stopped working on me and I've only had this palette for a few months. Besides those two cons, the full sized liquid eyeliner and sample sized mascara and UDPP are a very nice touch. I wouldn't have paid full price for this ($60 or so) but I'm very pleased with the deal I got and the colors I received.
I am obsessed with Urban Decay's BOS IV! Its Amaze! I got this palette as a Christmas/Birthday gift. The colors are gorgeous, great texture, color stays in place all day. The eyeliner is LEGIT. Never comes off. Truly, I had to scrub to get it off the first time I wore it. Urban Decay is so creative in their marketing, i love the names of all the eyeshadows. I am a HUGE fan.
Great deal for $28 but I wouldn't pay more than that.
I am a huge Urban Decay fan and at this point I've got almost all of their shadows over the course of like 9 years. But this BOS really fell short, the shadows are starting to lack originality which is understandable because of the high amount of shades they've come out with over the years. And of course there are the repeats like Baked. It does have a few cool colors but like i said, nothing special. But they're extremely pigmented and blendable. The mascara is okay, nothing to really write home about. The eyeliner fades within hours on my hooded lids and well the udpp never worked for me.
The book itself is cool and I like the idea, they definitely tried to do something different with the usb drive and the mini-speakers (which i use for my ipod for regular music play). Like someone said it is a bit gimmicky and that cool factor wears away quickly. Overall it isn't a terrible product but Urban Decay has come out with better, take advantage of the low price while you can.
This is an awesome palette, and UD recently had this on sale for just under $30. Has a wonderful range of pigmented colors, both matte and glittery, and comes with eyeliner, mascara, and a little tube of primer potion. Downside: It literally is the size of a book, and opening up the "drawer" to access the palette is downright impossible at times. Badly designed. Otherwise, I love it.
ON SALE FOR $29
I can't believe this is only $29 now! It was originally $64. I got it on the Urban Decay website and am soooo happy with it. The colors, of course, are amazing as always. I'm happy that I also get the primer potion that everyone's always talking about. The packaging is adorable. Maybe a little excessive with the pop-up butterflies, but who cares? It's so cute. I love these 16 brilliant colors and am looking forward to using this palette more and more.

Great color choices!
This palette is amazing! There are some things I loev and some things I wish I could change. The things I love are the colors! Some are new and some are their known colors. My personal favorite is sin! I love that it comes with a mini primer potion, liner and mascara! The eyeshadows are pigminted like always! Now with the things Im not so pleased with. I think it is too big, I wish it was a bit less bulky and easier to get the bottom part out. I dont think the butterfly popout was necessary. I also don't like the speaker it comes with, it just isn't that great. But besides that it has amazing colors!: )
I love Urban Decay. This product though, probably not one of their best. I like the other book of shadows a lot more. This one is much bigger than the other ones. The tutorials that came with this product are nothing super special. The eyeshadow itself though are super cute! I love them! They are all pigmented and I love the names for the eyeshadows! The eyeshadows are cute, but I'm not a real big fan of the packaging. Also I love the fact that it comes with the 24/7 liquid eyeliner, the mini mascara, and the mini primer potion.
This BOS is my first one from Urban Decay and I love it. I purchased mine from HauteLook a while ago and it arrived on my birthday =). I have been using this palette nearly everyday since I received it. I am an absolute sucker for packaging and I can't help gawking at how pretty the cover is for this palette. I also find it very appealing that this palette comes with a full size of their new liquid liner, a staple in my everyday beauty routine. The colors are beautiful, as well as this palette itself. I use this along with my Naked palette and it is all I need. I definitely recommend swatching it in the store and looking at swatches online before purchasing though. That you can gauge if you really want the BOS for yourself.
