This is probably the first Urban Decay eyeshadow that I bought and it was a great buy. It is a lovely shimmery golden peach color. At first I was a little hesitant because I worried that it might be glittery but it is in my opinion the right kind of shimmer. Several of my friends with different complexions and different skin tones have used this eyeshadow and it looks great on all of them. great staying power. Would definately buy again.
I adore this color. It's been at the back of my shadow drawer for a while and I recently rediscovered it. Lovely shimmery neutral, I wear it over Clinique "nude sparkle" touch tint. I have a fair-olive complexion.
X wasn't the first UD eyeshadow I bought and I actually passed over it the first few times I browsed the shadows at Sephora because it looks very peachy in the container and I couldn't imagine how a peach shadow could look good on me, particularly since the areas around my eyes are more heavily pigmented than the rest of my face and have a peachy-pink color to them already, which is something I'd prefer to cover up. But after browsing UD's site for the gazillionth time looking at the shades and planning my next purchase, I saw that X is a duotone shadow (I *love* duotone shadows) and that it has a gold shift to it, which sounded beautiful.
On one of my most recent trips to Sephora, I picked up a pot and I'm in LOVE. This is quite possibly one of the most flattering shades of shadow I've ever put on my eyelids. While I usually wear something more neutral (MAC Shroom is a popular choice for me), X does something I can't quite describe to my eyelids. It makes me look healthier, more awake and softer all at once. It's definitely a peachy shade on my lids, but when I move my head, it changes to a soft, shimmery gold that's surprisingly flattering next to my grey-blue eyes.
And the texture. Oh, the texture! I love MAC shadows, I really do. They were my first makeup love (and MAC always has a special place in my heart), but UD shadows' texture blows them out of the water. They go on like silk and look so smooth and velvety on my lids. I could rub my fingers on the surface of UD's shadows all day long, they feel so nice and silky smooth.
This is a definite repurchase and it may very well be my new default shadow shade. It also looks gorgeous when I pair it with my BE Buxom Lips gloss in Amber for a nice, soft, peachy look that brightens up my whole face and gives me a healthy glow. continued >>
Thiswas acctually my first eyeshadow that i bought with my own money. i thought it was a little expensive for what it was but now i think it was totally worth it. the X colour is very sparkly and goes amazingly with my hair (Stawbery blonde). A little goes along way, so the price pays off.
this e/s comes second in my favorites only to urban decays half baked... only because i have so many uses for that one.... im a huge fan of urban decay shadows, theyre not to over the top glittery and are highly pigmented (and their matte shadows are the most silky/velvety i have ever tried)...
where to start with this color... i cant really think of any cons.. its a gorgeous shade of gold... looks a lot like half baked, but has more rosey/peach undertones... if you love gold looks this is a shadow you should definitely have in your collection... like half baked it can be used as a stand alone color, a highlight for browbones, cheeks (for that sunkissed look), or for a wash of color that adds dimension with its peach undertones... im already on my 2nd pot
This is a shimmery, peachy gold color that looks great used in a variety of different looks, it looks as good paired with brights as with neutrals and makes a great lid color or highlighter, depending your coloring and the shadows paired with it. Not the most exciting color, but certainly versitale. The formula is typical urban decay-absolutely perfect texture that blends beautifully and wears like IRON....UD eyeshadows essentially never crease. Overally, pretty, versitale shadow to have.
I love this neutral rose tinted gold shadow. I love all UD's shadows, but this one is a favorite. It works great as an all over color or just as a highlighter. I have light to medium asian skin and this color is a great match to it.
I love this color! I would describe it as a peach color with a rose tint to it, only noticable in some lights. I have fair skin, and this is a great shadow to apply when I want a natural look - I never look overdone when I wear this. I love applying it when I look tired - for some reason it makes me look more awake. Very silky and pigmented like all of UD's shadows. It is expensive, especially for a high school student, but because of the amount of pigment, it will take me a forever to use up!
I like this eyeshadow a lot! It's a very pretty peachy gold color that works well as a highlighter or an all over wash. The staying power is great and it doesn't crease even on my oily eyelids. I love UD shadows in general, but they are pricey $16) for an undergrad like me. Worth it if you will use it a lot!
I really love this color and the texture is fabulously smooooove! :)
It's a soft and girly shimmery pale peachy/pinky creme color with a touch of golden-ish sheen.
(I know, I made it sound so complicated, but it's complex like that.)
