I got this eye shadow in the Urban Decay 'Alice and Wonderland' palette.
This is a lovely shimmery champagne colour with fine silver glitter particles.
It's an amazing colour which can be used with a number of looks but if you dont have much tolerance with glitter then i'd avoid this one as the glitter fall out is phenomenal, but there are ways to avoid this such as using Urban Decay's Primer potion on your eyelid beforehand and under your eye as this help's it to stay put and reduces the amount of glitter that spreads around your face.
The only reason i wouldn't purchase this again is because there are other eye shadow's that are similar and require less work.
I love Midnight Cowboy so I tried rides again and well....I love it. You MUST like glitter to get this shadow.
This is a gorgeous eyeshadow. Hands down it's very versitale, it works on both the lid and on the crease, as long as you like glitter. The color is beautiful, except like so many other Urban Decay eyeshadows the huge, chunky silver glitter falls heavily on your face, and I find that I have to scrub at my face just to get it off. All eyeshadow falls on my face, which I'm used to having to wipe off in the morning, but I have to take a textured surface to get this glitter off. If you don't mind the glitter issue, this product totally rocks, and I find that I reach for it a lot.
This product loses 1 lippie because of the glitter issue. The color is beautiful and the glitter looks great on the eyes. The problem is how to do away with the glitter that will amass under the eye. This is definitely an eyeshadow where tapping away any excess on the brush is a must. Also, a q-tip with some eye makeup remover to remove the excess glitter under the eye will come in handy. I didn't need to remove all the glitter because after I apply concealer, foundation, powder, bronzer, and blush, you don't see a trace of the glitter. However, if you like to apply eye makeup last in your routine or if you don't use much face makeup, the glitter sitch may leave you a bit perplexed. Some people like to hold up a business card or tissues under the eyes to catch the glitter and then there's no worries on how to deal with anything under the eyes. Oh, and yes, eye makeup primer will help and should always be used.
Nice glitter color. A pain in the a++ if u don't know how to use glitter. I finally got it down, apply a cream base first then spritz with fix + or a little water but just spritz. Apply in a patting motion and that's it! Looks awesome on my deep tan skin color. I hated this until I figured out the whole method. Very pretty.....ohh and by the way, its an awsome color used under the brow. I tapped the brush b4 using and to my surprise all the glitter fell out and I applied in a tapping motion. There was no glitter in sight so yayyy!!!
This is my first UD eyeshadow that I've tried and I have a half and half feeling for this eyeshadow. I love the color. It is pretty but it has incredible glitter fall out. I tried to use it wet but even then the fall out is still very noticeable. I would have given it a fairly low rating if it wasn't for my bf; he likes it. He keeps on complimenting my eyeshadow and telling me to use it more often. Lucky that I got this in the BOS3, otherwise it would totally going back to the store despite the fact that my bf likes it; it's just purely too much trouble to work with this color. I would use it until it's gone but I'm not gonna repurchase.
We all know about UD and their super glittery eye shadows. This is definitely one of them. So, if you aren't in the market for a glittery eye shadow, stay away from this one. The color is nice and neutral, and I go to this when I'm feeling a neutral look. One of the drier UD shadows, but never chalky.
Know that this is a Glitter-Bomb of a eyeshadow and I'm reviewing as such. I like glitter and I like natural eye shadows, so this holds a special place in that very small category. I would probably would never wear this eyeshadow out but if I need a pretty, glitter-bomb of an eyeshadow this would be it.
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (golden beige w/ bronze, gold & silver glitter) brings out my inner-child that just needs to come out every once in awhile. continued >>
Ok everyone knows this one has tons of glitter. If you're not into glitter you won't like it anyway. BUT considering it's a glitter e/s, I think the colour makes it more wearable and I reach for it when I feel like something a little more sparkly. Worn with UD chopper and twice baked, it's a really pretty neutral eye that doesn't go over the top. As far as fallout, I use it damp with MUFE sealant or visine, over UDPP and I'll just get a few specks on my cheek but I can still wear it safely with contacts.
I love this color... I can agree with most people that say there is a lot of glitter fallout but I've tried some different methods that have worked somewhat I've used Pixie Epoxy from Fyrinnae which u can get at fyrinnae.com and sort of pat swipe it on and it sticks pretty good with that I had pretty much no fallout or I applied it with a damp brush which helped it also.. anyways to the color it's like a light golden beige with silver and gold glitter.. I love to use this as a lid color with twice baked or chopper in my crease for a glittery neutral eye.. I got mine from the Skull Shadow box palette and it's running out fast I would buy it again just not at full price... Mainly cuz I'm a cheapo lol.
Hope this helps!
