I'm pretty much posting this everywhere. I've been a fan of Urban Decay for a long time now. Their stuff is fantastic, always really high quality, and it always goes above what you would expect.
I got the new book of shadows (IV) today though as an early christmas present, and I was a little shocked. The packaging was of such bad quality that it left a horrible scrape down the entire left row as I opened it for the first time. It was a gift, so I cant really take it back, but if I could I would, and exchange it for one that is not so poorly put together.
I am disappointed. I had heard of this happening with the IV book of shadows. I had heard a lot of stories And I thought they were maybe just rare cases. But aparently not.
Be wary. It seems their quality is declining, and I am really sad at that fact.
If you are planning to get it, or get it for someone else, be wary.
Just to be clear, I am still grateful for it of course, and I will still get a lot of use and enjoyment out of it. I am just a bit disappointed with Urban Decay for such shoddy packaging. It wans't cheap, so I mena you just expect better, you know?
