What a sad way to ruin such a perfect color. Basically I'm going to agree with everyone else--way too much fallout. I thought at Sephora that I really needed a shimmery shadow even though I never use the ones I buy. Really, why dont I just learn that matte eyeshadows look better on me. Also, why don't I always make sure to check MUA? While I may often disagree with the MAC reviews (not a big MAC fan) I should have checked anyway for UD. The reviews are spot on. Way too much fallout. Way too much glitter. It seems like some kind of cheap eyeshadow that you would get with a barbie costume at halloween. Too sad since the shade is the perfect shimmery peachy pinky nudey shade to make eyelids seem clean and fresh.
Fortunately for me, I'm a hairstylist, and I can get away with almost any make up I want, especially daytime glitter. That being said, I ADORE this e/s! It's my HG! I have found that if you experience too much fallout from your glitter shadows, it's either A: application technique or B: the brush you are using. I always prime lids (for staying power) and with glittery e/s this is always an important step. I also use brush #275 from MAC to PAT my glittery shadows on. Swiping glitter shadows on tends to fling glitter all over the place giving the illusion that a disco ball has exploded. Nuts to that.
Back to this product. I love this shadow. Even for daytime. It's a pretty pale-pinkish-beige, with a ton of silver/gold/bronze glitter. I either pat on a little, or a lot depending on the effect I want. A quick swipe of black liquid liner, and a bold dose of mascara, and I've got mod eyes, that no one dares challenging.
Will buy again, and again.
I bought this shadow at Ulta and I ended up bringing it back the next day. The color is a pale beige shimmer with a hint of pink. Imagine a pale, flesh color with tons of glitter. I usually like glitter but this was nuts. The level of fallout was insane and the glitter did not stay on my lids. Instead, it just flew everywhere and ended up on my cheeks. I am sad this color did not work for me because it looked so promising in the pan.
this is a very pretty shimmery beige w/ lots of glitter. good thing i love glittery eyes! even though this is very pretty and im glad i traded for it, i prob. wouldnt buy it due to its price. but id gladly trade for it again.
this continues to be one of my fav UD shadows. ok so maybe id pay full price for this one.
Eww... I love most UD e/s but this one.... it's so messy, chunky and just too glittery. Hard to use and has tons of fallout. I would not buy this again.
This shade is awsome!Another great Urban Decay shadow that looks nothing like the rest of the eyeshadows out there.It is a beautiful golden bronze/beige with LOTS of glitter.You can use it for so many different looks,but I like wearing it alone the most because it's so pretty.I really can't live without it!
This is a very pretty beige color, but there is TONS of glitter, and I mean LOADS of it. I'm not talking shimmer here. I'm talking the large chunks they put in body glitter. No matter how careful I was, the glitter ended up all over my face. It was EVERYWHERE. Even after washing it off, it was still sticking around. The stuff is like glue! I really can't see myself wearing this, ever. I'm 26 and work in the legal field, and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing this to work. Actually, I don't even think I could wear this out on the weekends either. I probably would have gone crazy for this when I was 16, but I guess those fun days are over...
I adore this shadow. I am on my second one. I agree with the other reviewers that the glitter does get all over your face but put it on before you put on face makeup. This will prevent the glitter from sticking to your skin and you can remove any unwanted glitter with a big blush brush. I rarely use it alone because the color is hardly visible alone. It is pefect over other richer eyeshadows, however. It tones them down.
I had some money that was just BURNING a hole in pocket so I went to Sephora. I was looking around the UD section when I saw this shadow. I wasn't very familiar with UD at the time (The only product I had was UDPP) I thought it was so pretty and sparkly and I just loved the beige-y color. When I got home, I immediately tried it out.
TALK ABOUT FALLOUT.
The glitter ends up everywhere and the actual color payoff isn't that great. The entire shadow is almost completely glitter. I'll keep this in my collection because I horde makeup, but I don't plan on buying this again. If you want to try really shimmery UD shadows that don't have a lot of fallout and have great color payoff, I suggest the Deluxe Shadows (which I'll review later. :P)
UGH, did I not like this shadow. Aside from the fact that it is way too glittery, it doesn't have much color payoff either. As far as UD shadows go their colors are always bright and vibrant, but this shadow just looks like a dull flat peach/beige with chunky silver glitter. I'm sure the fact that the glitter is silver makes it look even more dull as opposed to a warm gold/bronze glitter.
Also the texture is very chunky and it doesn't apply very well IMO. I purchased it because I bought the hype about it being one of UD's best selling shadows, but never again. I swapped mine away with no regrets.
