There is nothing better than Urban Decay eyeshadows. They last all day, never crease, and the color never fades.
This is a review for the shade Midnight Cowboy Rides Again. It looks really pretty. It's just what the description says: golden beige w/ bronze, gold & silver glitter. It's lasted me though cold weather, exercise and then some (at least when I use primer). It's a really lovely shade, and could've been a favourite of mine. If it weren't for all that friggin' glitter. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE shimmers, sparkles, glitter.... But THIS!!! Upon swatching I noticed that the glitter didn't stick very well, so I dusted quite a lot loose powder below my eyes, on cheekbones and nose. And applied my eye make up before putting on foundation. No good. It's now past midnight and I've still got glitter ALL over my face. It's just too much, and as it won't stick where it's supposed to.... Apart from the glitters this is a truly BEAUTIFUL shade, and because of that I'll not slaughter this shade all together. Don't mind the packaging either. If anyone could tell me how to avoid looking as though I've stumbled in a heap of tinsels, I'd really appreciate it, but for no I'm considering it a bit of a waste of good money:( continued >>
These are lovely, very soft so you don't hurt your eyes and very long lasting, the packaging is also oh so cute,they make me very happy as did finding lots of colours very cheap in a store in the UK, i have these in Eldorado (gold sparkle), chopper (bronze sparkle) and purple haze (well... purple), they really are good colours, they last really well without smudging or cracking and i don't pick up too much when i apply so the consistency is brilliant.
Ladies, please stop pulling and tugging at your eyelids and fighting to put on your eyeshadow. Use Urban Decay instead of those other brands that are just 'ok.' If I could, I'd dock half a lippie for the chunk glitter in some of the colors. Otherwise, great prouct!
Edited to add: This does not irritate my eyes either. Certain brands irritate my eyes excessively, but even the wildest UD colors don't irritate at all. Awesome stuff!
I really love these e/s except for the glitter ones. Great pigmentation (i think better than MAC). They're soft and easy to blend. My favorite is Twice Baked. I also love the names of them too.
Mac and Urban Decay eyeshadows are my favorite! A lot of them are glittery so I do not buy as many now as when I did when I was younger but they are great quality!
Any Urban Decay eye shadow is good eye shadow! The colors are amazing, and they are the EASIEST to mix, and they're so much fun to play with!
The only bad thing is is that it doesn't last as long as some other eye shadows I've had. It fades. BUT, I work long days, and I can't expect it to hold up for 10-12 hours, can I?
I still love Urban Decay, no matter what. : )
I bought an Urban Decay eyeshadows with 8 of them, I got em at Marshall's for $6!!! The colors look awesome, especially the black one, and the green one looks great too!! I wish they were darker though, but overall its great quality and I know if I find them at that special price Im gonna go for them!!!
I am not a big eyeshadow person, but I decided to go out and get some of these after a friend (who's also a true makeup junkie) recommended them. So far, I have Hot Pants, Grifter, and Purple Haze in regular and Yeyo, Naked, and Secret Service in matte.
I can only repeat what all the other reviewers have said so far- amazing range of shades (and sparkles), goes on smoothly and looks creamy, lasts long, and blends very well!
I use these with UD Primer Potion and it really helps prevent fading and creasing.
OMG! This eyeshadow is amazing. I am in love! HG!!!
I got the ammo palette which is a great introduction to these eyeshadows, and I love every single color. I am NC30 with single eyelids, so It's harder for me to work bright colors, but the blendability and build-ability (if thats a word...) makes it easy to wear any shade, bright or neutral! Because the shadows are so buildable yet pigmented, I believe they'd suit any skintone. A little goes a long way, and the texture is dream-like: silky and super blendable! I can't rave enough - just try them!
I've only been using this for a few days but I loved them so much I had to rush here to write a review. Even when applied using cheap brushes, the outcome was amazing!
If you don't know what color to get, or don't need huge single eyeshadows, this palette is perfect for putting together lots of different looks and trying them out.
