Review of Urban Decay S & M by italiana800
I love Urban Decay eyeshadows, & I've been looking for a silverish gray for an everyday (not too heavy) eyeshadow. I will start off by saying one thing that's for sure, this color definitely is not true to the color in the pan. Once you get this on your eyelids, it turns darker than it looks in the pan & it turns to more of a grayish blue color (at least on me). I was honestly looking for & expecting a way lighter shade of silver, but this is still nice, just not what I was expecting. I like the fact that this isn't glittery & therefore, does not get fall out all over my face. This has a slight shimmer, which compliments this color very well. The first time I tried this, I applied this all over my lids. I didn't like the way this color looked piled up on my lids at all. Then, I put a champagne colored eyeshadow as a base, & applied this in my creases. I LOVED this eyeshadow when I used it that way. So, now I know for future reference. This looks too dark & kind of a scary dark blue if used as an all over lid color. But if you moderatley put this in the creases, it creates a beautiful smokey eye, & the color actually looks true to the color in the pan. No blue tints show up that way, which is PERFECT. At first, I wasn't so sure if I would be buying this again...let alone keeping this. But now, I will definitely be keeping this & most likely buying again. Sometimes the difference is in the way you use things.
