The only color eyeshadow i use is brown and neutral skin colors. I love the brown color and it looks great on my skin color. Im not crazy about the shimmer, but its not that shimmery. It would be great for a brown smokey eye. The shadow goes on pretty smooth. You dont need a lot of eye shadow to show color. I would say its not sheer.
One of UD's Greatest colors! Good for anyone, you can pump it up or wear it down. I love the texture, and I am all about how the shadow goes on and this is a good one! It is the color for anyone who is looking to get into Urban Decay and doesn't want to go too crazy at first. The color is a nice brown and shiny but not glittery, and very true to color. I would encourage anyone to try this shadow.
This is my HG brown eyeshadow. Smog is a chocolate brown metallic eyeshadow. The texture is SO incredibly silky smooth. It applies evenly and the pigmentation in the powder is incredible. I love using a little bit of visine to make this into an eyeliner. It is extremely versatile and goes with many other shades (personally, I LOVE it with mildew).
Love Smog! This shadow is highly pigmented and very easy to blend. It's a coppery color but not too red orange. So glad to have found this shadow!
It's a bit expensive for my taste (16.00 for a pot) but well worth it. Lasts FOREVER, goes on great, amazing texture. This stuff is great. I put some lighter shadow over it usually.
Gorgeous bronze/brown color, with a hint of olive green. Looks like dark gold in certain lighting. Doesn't have as much glitter fallout as other UD shadows. I think this is a gorgeous color wet or dry, dressed up or down, and will look great on all skin colors (especially darker ones). Highly recommended!
Awhile back I got an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette that included Smog. When I first looked at it I thought, "there's no way I'll ever try that one!" To me the color looked like it embodied its namesake a little too much, and it appeared dingy. But eventually I broke down and gave it a try and I'm glad I did. It looks so completely different on my eyes than it does in the palette!
Smog is the perfect shade of bronze-brown. It really works well with my hazel eyes. It brings out the brown tones and is a nice contrast to the green. I feel like my eye color really "pops" with this shade. Definitely one of my fav eye shadows.
BEAUTIFUL eyeshadow! Especially paired with UD Smog Eyeliner. This eyeshadow has that hologram effect- you can see several colors at the same time, namely gold, brown, olive green.
Yes, I swore off Urban Decay eyeshadows... because of previously bad choices of too glittery UD shadows that deposited no color- just chunky glitter- on my lids. Wasted money and tossed 'em right in the trash! But SMOG??? Smog is different! Smog is not like ordinary UD eyeshadows! Here's how I found out about Smog:
I saw a youtube video of a girl doing a brown, metallic, smokey eye using UD Smog and who-knows-what-else (the Smog is what really "made" the look). Smog looked so stunning on her, I knew I had to check it out the next time I popped in Ulta or Sephora. I swatched it in Ulta... loved it, bought it, gave it a home. I used it almost everyday since I bought it, and it is a marvelous find! Smog is the perfect bronze-brown, and great for the crease. It is not too shiny, glittery, red, or sparkly. (It is similar to a MAC Veluxe Pearl finish, IMO.)
The other day, I wore it with BB Gold Dust (from her Burnt Sugar Metallics palette) on the lid, and Smog in crease, outer corners, and as a lower lid liner. I was later complimented by a make-up artist at the Bobbi Brown counter on my "beautiful eye makeup" as I was browsing their display! (That's a BIG deal for me!) :o)
I don't think I'm going to convert over to Urban Decay anytime soon, but I do like this one eyeshadow (Smog), and I would definitely recommend it. continued >>
Smog is a nice bronzy-brown that can function as a neutral or as part of a golden-brown smokey eye. I wear it both as an everyday color (more of a wash) and as a going-out look (with black liner and a bronze-nude lip), and it achieves a fine point of equilibrium between dramatic and bruised. The formula is smooth and there's not any real glitter to worry about (which is why I avoid some UD shadows), it's primarily just rich shimmer. Highly recommended!
