Unfortunately you can't buy Urban Decay in my country, but I bought a small eyeshadow palette (it's lilac, I don't know its name.. 4 colors are included).
So I got to know the colors Oil Sick, Midnight Cowboy, Stray Dog and Flipside. And I have to say that all of them are great, because Urban Decay seems to produce eyeshadows with good quality.
All of them are long-lasting, pretty pigmented and I love that Urban Decay has funky colors like Flipside.
Oil Sick is prettier and softer than mac's black tied. And it's wonderful that they have vegan products and never test on animals!
The reason why I give only 3 lipsticks - the price. Of course I like the quality, but UD is one of the most expensive brands I've ever seen. The quality isn't just THAT great/innaovative/whatever that the price would be justified for me. I have eyeshadows of other brands that are much more expensive, but almost as nice.. not just as well (UD is slightly better), but almost. And "a bit better" does not justify 10-15 euros more for me.
But if you want only expensive brands, I would say that UD is better than mac for example. If you like expensive eyeshadow, you should check them out, they are softer than MAC's and easier to apply!
Awesome is all I can say. I wear UD eyeshadows 99% of the time. They go on easily, stay on and look vibrant. The colors are different that the run of the mill colors we're used to seeing and I love that! All of their eye products are great IMO. Love them!
I love Urban Decay eye shadows! There are around 52 lovely and not always safe colors, in several different finishes: Matte, Shimmer, Metallic, and Glitter, not to forget that 9 of them have a Duotone color shift. I love the few i have: Sell Out, Urban Cowboy Rides Again, Midnight Cowgirl, and Asphyxia; and i have 14 more on my wish list. No, not gonna get em all, but i can dream :) Sometimes i use eye shadow brushes for smooth, buildable layers, and sometimes i use my finger tip, which gives a heavier shinier coating.
I've been wearing Urban Decay Eyeshadow for coming up on 5 years and own over 40 shades of their eyeshadow while I absolutely love their pigmentation, the glitter is another story. When I was 18 year old party girl I absolutely love the glitter, but now that I'm 22 military wife the chunky glitter seems a little much. I still love bright colors and sheens don't get me wrong but bright plus super chunky glitter doesn't quite work as well for me anymore. I wouldn't give this product a 4 because this product is still amazing I've just changed what I like in eyeshadows and I will still use this product. I am a sucker for their palettes. There will always be a place in my heart for Urban Decay Eyeshadows for starting my makeup addiction. ^_^
I love Urban Decay eyeshadows, and own around 20 different shades, and some I love and some are just okay. I love the pallets because you can create literally millions of looks. The problems I have with the shadows are that some are quite sheer and even after i load on the primer and do many many applications I still do not get the amount of color I am looking for, and in shades like Midnight Cowboy the glitter in the shadow gets EVERYWHERE! I use Lauren Luke eye primer which is thick thick thick and it still can't hold on to the glitter. I love these shadows, just test them out a few times before dropping $17 on a eyeshadow that leaves glitter everywhere or isnt very pigmented
Worth the price! Not to mention the packaging is so cute! They are so blendable, creamy and pigmented!
My favorites are Goddess, Oil Slick, Last Call, and Mildew!
UD eyeshadows are the best! Very high quality, great pigmentation, super blendable, great staying power, etc. I could go on & on about these shadows! Definitely worth the price.
Wonderful colors to choose from, very soft and silky, and blend so easily!
I'm kind of torn on UD eyeshadows. While I do have some that I like a lot, there have also been so many disappointments. I have the Book of Shadows II as well as the Hotpants single. I love Homegrown and Misdemeanor the most, as they are highly pigmented, beautifully unique colors, easy to blend, and the staying power is good with a primer. Colors like AC/DC and Ecstasy, however, I found to be such a disappointment. I love purples and was excited to wear these, but they are too sheer. I have to layer and layer and even then I don't get the look I am after. Gunmetal is a lovely color, but I hate the glitter fallout. Sellout is nice as an inner corner color, but as a lid color it is chalky ...I was most disappointed in this one, because I had heard so many good things about it.
Overall, I do wear some of my UD shadows, but I probably won't repurchase. Stila is lightyears better for me-- more reliable and consistent, better lasting power and no glitter.
I absolutely LOVE urban decay eyeshadows...it's definitely my favorite brand of eyeshadow!!! The pigmentation and quality are amazing, the color range is beautiful, it blends wonderfully and it stays! I can't say enough about their shadows, especially the deluxe ones...those are the BEST!!! This would definitely be on my list of "if you could only pick one, what would it be..." I haven't had to re-purchase any colors yet because you get a lot of product, however if there was something I ran out of, I would not hesitate to purchase again!!
