Multiple palettes from Urban Decay?

If you are anything like me, you feel kind of spellbound every time Urban Decay launches a new palette. I'm usually taken by their gorgeous packaging, but ever since I first tried Get Baked Shadow Palette I became a complete sucker for UD palettes, and they kept accumulating. I was actually just about to order their newest addition to the UD family, Summer of Love Shadow Palette, until I suddenly realized that the names of the shades sounded familiar. I decided to cross-check with my other palettes, and guess what I discovered? I already owned all four shades.

As of now I own six palettes from Urban Decay: Book of Shadows Vol. II, Ammo Shadow Box, Get Baked Eyeshadow Palette, "Alice in Wonderland" Book of Shadows, Preen Shadow Box and Deluxe Shadow Box, and I've listed the names of all the shades within these six palettes below. First is the name of the shade (I've listed the actual names of the ones in the "Alice in Wonderland" box), then how many duplicates I have, and lastly the name of the palette where you can find the shade.

  • Perversion (BoS II)
  • Gunmetal (BoS II)
  • Ecstasy (BoS II)
  • AC/DC (BoS II)
  • Nylon (BoS II)
  • Sellout (BoS II)
  • Mushroom x2 (BoS II, Alice in Wonderland)
  • Sphynx (BoS II)
  • Half Baked x2 (BoS II, Get Baked)
  • Twice Baked x3 (BoS II, Alice in Wonderland, Get Baked)
  • Midnight Cowboy Rides Again x2 (BoS II, Alice in Wonderland)
  • YDK (BoS II)
  • Jinx (BoS II)
  • Flipside x2 (BoS II, Get Baked)
  • Homegrown x2 (BoS II, Alice in Wonderland)
  • Misdemeanor (BoS II)
  • Flash x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Preen)
  • Painkiller x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Preen)
  • Baked x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Get Baked)
  • Last Call x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Chopper x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Polyester Bride x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Maui Wowie x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Grifter x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • X (Alice in Wonderland)
  • S&M (Alice in Wonderland)
  • Sin x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Oil Slick x2 (Alice in Wonderland, Ammo)
  • Smog x2 (Ammo, Preen)
  • Mildew x2 (Ammo, Preen)
  • Shattered (Ammo)
  • Snatch (Preen)
  • Toasted (Preen)

That's a total of 33 different shades whereas 18 of these have duplicates in one or several of the other palettes I own. Rather depressing, don't you think? I don't know about you, but I seriously hope Urban Decay stops pushing out palettes without adding at least a couple of new shades in each new addition. I guess this means I won't buy anymore palettes from UD until something changes then.

Disappointed? Hell yes.
