I am an UD fan and I want to like all their e/s, really I want to. But I can't figure out a way that I could use this consistently. I tried to use this as an inner corner highlight and will glitter gets in my eyes and it cascades down the rest of my face. Its described as white/silver but it really isn't so pigmented. Its just packed with glitter. Its pressed glitter, thats what it is. I think I might just use it like how you would use loose glitter. I said that I would buy it again because I had it in my 1st UD palette ever and I purchased other palettes that UZI in them. I could care less, its UD. I think UD is playing smart in sticking this in every palette they think they of because I really can't see anyone going into a store and saying yes, UZI is great and worth whatever price that it is.
Urban Decay's Uzi eyeshadow was surprisingly my first eyeshadow ever. It's a pretty glittery white eyeshadow. First off, the eyeshadow was too expensive for what I got. It's way too glittery. I still use this product once in a while to add a shimmer to my eyes and that's it. Love the packaging but they should lower the price. I won't be buying this again.
As pretty as it is in the pan, there's way too much big glitter. Use too much and it will fall all over your cheeks for hours. Actually, it will do that anyway.
**Pros: Cute packaging, long-lasting color
**Cons: Way too much glitter fall-out
This is the first UD e/s I tried in pot form, and I was a bit disappointed. I hope not all UD pot form e/s are this glittery! The color payoff is fair, nearly comparable to MAC's pigmentation; but, the glitter drives me nuts. Even after I wipe off the initial fall-out from applying the e/s, within 10 minutes, glitter specks fall from my eyelids onto my nose, cheeks, and even upper lip. And no, even e/s primer couldn't save me from the glitter fall-out.
I HATE this eyeshadow. It's basically a white color with a whole ton of glitter.I got this in the Sustainable Shadow Box. It looked okay as a browbone highlight until the glitter shed and got into my eyes and stung. I also hate the mess that it creates, it got into the other shades in my palette and ruined them. What also annoys me about this shadow is that Urban Decay, God bless them, insist on putting this in every dang palette they make. I didn't get the BOS III on account of Uzi and Midnight Cowboy Rides Again being well known glitter bombs that would ruin the palette. If you want a white shadow from UD I would suggest Polyester Bride or Yeyo, I've heard they're both tons better than this.
Shadows like Uzi remind me that I am not 18 anymore and that so much glitter looks silly for everyday wear, which is a shame because the base color for Uzi (a frosty white/silver concoction) wouldn't be bad for blending and highlighting lightly but the glitter makes it nearly impossible. The problem with UD's glitter shadows is that the glitter is so chunky, it doesn't adhere well to the skin, and the eyeshadow will fade long before the glitter does. Uzi would also be a lot more awesome if it were more silver and less white.
I've loved UD shadows for quite a while now, so of course I know all about the "glitterbomb" reputation of a few of the colors. I've not owned any until now, however, when I purchased the BOS III. My review for each of three shadows (Midnight Cowboy, Uzi and Maui Wowie) is the same: absolutely beautiful color concept/unacceptable, ridiculous glitter present. I finally broke down to try these three in the privacy of my home on a sick day. As soon as I laid my brush upon each color, I knew I was in for it. Glitter flew everywhere as I applied the shadow. Cleanup was horrendous because it was never entirely complete (you know how glitter does!). After eye makeup remover I thoroughly washed my face. Looking in the mirror I STILL saw hints of glitter here and there. I can only surmise that UD makes good money off these three colors and that's why they're still around.
I bought the single in HS when everyone wore shimmery white lids with just black liner and i just thought this was the bomb.
now, i shudder thinking about it. they only time i ever use this is for a very dramatic and glittery smokey eye when i have time to pick the 9000 flitter flakes off my cheeks and don't mind spending 7 hours washing it off. it's in every freakin' palette and sheds its glitter mess all over the useful shadows.
I have no idea why UD keeps putting this mediocre shadow into almost every palette. Vapor is WAY better - Vapor is the same shade in a nice smooth frost with no obnoxious glitter.
Even with a primer and packing it on with a flat brush, the glitter crumbles off in a drag queen avalanche all over my face.
Sometimes this shadow can be useful as an inner corner hilight, but I have so many other shades that work better!
I agree about the glitter. I love certain Urban Decay products, but in general, dont use their eyeshadows due to the glitter and too chrommy techture. Would like to see them make more mattes.
