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.
I have used Urban Decay shadows for at least a year now and I like their staying power and blendability. They also come in great colors. Whenever I am looking for something funky, I go to their products first.
these eyeshadows are great. very long lasting and beautiful. i bought the gunmetal and S&M after seeing the Sephora book where they used those 2 colors. i also picked up Underground. i love them all.
I have used an eye shadow by urban decay for over a year & a half now and i am in love, i use there matte brown as a crease color every single day. They are better than mac eyeshadows when it comes to quality, but mac has a better color selection. these eye shadows do not budge, over udpp i have worked out for over an hour & still walked out of the gym with my crease looking just as good, as it did when i came in. I love love love these shadows, im not a big fan of all of them though. Choose carefully, some finishes will leave you with glitter all over your face, but then again macs do to.
I was first introduced to Urban Decay at Sephora. I was looking for a pink eyeshadow and a product consultant recommended Urban Decay to me. Skeptical, I asked her if she could apply it on my eyes. She did and I was very pleased. The texture was smooth and it stayed on my skin long after I left the store (I live in Hawai'i where the humidity is super high). I highly recommend people to try this brand. Like other reviewers have said, there aren't as many color choices as MAC but you won't be disappointed with the quality!
Wow wow wow. I discovered this eyeshadow last year when I stepped foot in a Sephora for the first time. I usually wear MAC and Lise Watier eyeshadows...and Urban Decay beats them. The colors are sooo rich and almost creamy. Great staying power. The range of colours may not be like MAC's but the colors they do have are gorgeous and the quality is truly outstanding. I want to buy every color....
I really wish I had gotten into these sooner. I recently had to throw out a bunch of eye shadow because it was too old or didn't hold up to my standards in terms of pigmentation and blending ability. Urban Decay doesn't have the shade range of MAC, but honestly I have had better luck in terms of quality. The colors are always very rich and they just smooth out so well onto my skin. I plan to replace a lot of colors with Urban Decays eye shadow. The chunks of glitter in some of the shades can be a nuisance, but it doesn't affect how pigmented they are or how well the blend. Still, I prefer not to get those shades because the glitter fall out is intense. I recommend trying one and seeing how it works out.
The shadows all come in rich gorgeous colors. They last the entire day, never crease, and can be used alone, layered, or as a liner. The glitter just adds to that little bit of glamour. There's a shade to suit every skin tone as well. It's a must try for shadows.
These shadows are in a very easy to open, transportable container. I love the container design, and how easy the shadow goes on! I love it and I will recommend these to family and friends! I have one right now, but will be getting more. I have Urban Decay Matte eyeshadow in Chronic.
