Highly pigmented, best colors, easily applied with your fingertips, and lasts ALL NIGHT with the eyeshadow primer.
UD has some awesome eyeshadows, very pigmented, highly blendable, pretty long-lasting wearability (especially with UDPP, lasts forever) and a good variety of fun colors although some can be a bit glittery for everyday wear. I love that they fit my MAC palette (after I de-pot them) instead of carrying around a million e/s pots.
This stuff lasts, blends well and comes in the greatest colors.
I love UD's "Sin." I am extremely fair-skinned and this is the perfect neutral for me. It's definitely in the "champagne" category--not too peachy or pink, but definitely not bright white like Polyester Bride.
I use this almost daily. This weekend, I couldn't find it and panicked until I found it fallen under my makeup cabinet. *whew*
I have several of these shadows and they all seem to have different textures depending on color.
My favorite is YDK, a shimmery cool brown, not too dark, not too light. I also love Baked, a shimmery gold. It comes pretty close to a shadow I have been trying to find for a long time, a replacement for a warm gold that Aveda used to make. So far I haven't found it, but this one comes close. As I am not in my 20's, I try not to overdo it with the shimmery shadows, but use them sheerly or as liners. The two above mentioned really bring out the green and hazel tones in brown eyes.
The most recent color I got is Stalker, I usually love purples, and it looked like a cool toned purple under the store's flourescent lighting. However, when I got it home and tried it on, it looked like I had been crying or punched in the eye, way too much of a red-purple. And it has silver sparkles in it. I think this one will go into the "Halloween" makeup bag!
All in all, I would recommend UD shadows, the colors are vibrant and rich and they stay on well. The price is reasonable too.
I don't know if it's just me, but my pan just popped right out of the container, and I had to use double sided tape to get it back in (hence my 2 on the packaging quality).
Besides that, I love this brand's eyeshadow. It's extremely pigmented, and I think I will never have to repurchase my Lounge, but if I did, I would. Definitely try this brand out, it's worth every cent.
Urban Decay's eyeshadows are wonderful. Not only are the colors irresistable, a little goes a long way and they are long wearing to boot.
My first purchase of an UD product was the Urban Ammo Eye Palette and I fell completely in love with this product. These eyeshadows glittery, but so fun to wear.
I have been wearing Urban Decay eyeshadows for years. I've bought MAC shades here and there over the years, and even though they are quality its still not the same. I have always been attracted to UDs unique and 'edgy' color range. Even their neturals POP - there's always just a little something extra going on with the UD shadows. They are just gorgeous! I just got a MAC 239 shadow brush and my eyeshadow looks better than ever now. You definitely need a quality brush to get the full effect of UD shadows. This brush combined with the UD Primer Potion = HG heaven!
I am ALL about the palettes! I have about 3 right now =) Even though there's a lot of color shade overlap in their palettes, those are the shades I end up using the most so it works out. My favorite is the Las Chicas Face Case - that little baby is all I need for travel with shadow, gloss, and blush! My 'daily' shade is a mix of Smog (shimmery brown) and Shotgun (sparkly mauvy-pink). Top it off by blending in Midnight Cowboy and I'm set!
Its true what they say about the sparkles - be prepared! It works for me though - I guess I'm just a sparkly kinda gal =) If I want to get rid of the excess sparkles I just tap my brush several times on the sink and most of the sparkles fall right out. UD also now makes several shades of matte shadows and have always made a good selection of shimmers. Their website has a handy key for each shade that tells you if its matte, shimmer, sparkly, or a combination. If you are looking for quality, non-boring shadows, then definitely give UD a try. continued >>
I got the eyeshadow ammo pallette was my first purchase, and omg, it was amazing, they applied to my eye wonderfully and stayed on great, i loved the colors.i even purchased more. It was until recently i decided to try mac i purchased 3 eyeshadows from the c-shock collection, and wow, did this eyeshadow suck!!!!!!!, so in my opinion urban decay is so much better than mac, im just a urban decay girl :)
Definitly my HG!
Ps: if your looking to buy some UD shadows, you better like glitter ;)
I purchased the Wallpaper eyeshadow palette, because the colors suited me and UD products have received a lot of good reviews here. I'd been looking at it for a while, but couldn't decide whether the shadows would show up shimmery or glittery. Well, unfortunately, they turned out to be very glittery, in the worst possible way. It was very chunky, like kids' cheap craft glitter. Even with a light hand I had fallout, and when I tried to wipe it off with a damp cotton ball, it spread everywhere and was very stubborn. Only a full face-washing got the last of it. It went back to the store that day!
