Review of Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Rides Again by slok87
I like shimmery make-up. I even like glittery make-up. But in order for this to work for me, the pigments/shimmer/glitter in the make-up needs to stay in the make-up, where I apply it. And this is why I can never love this beautiful shadow.
Upon application, this looks gorgeous. It is a shimmery taupe-champagne with tons and tons and tons of pieces of silver glitter in it. And it is glitter; it may as well be loose glitter, because it falls right out of the eyeshadow. I have tried excellent eye shadow bases. I have tried using a brush dipped in Visine before applying. I have tried applying this lightly with a brush, with a sponge applicator, anything, and I cannot keep the glitter from migrating to every inch of my face. This isn't just shimmer, or light glitter; they are chunks of glitter, and if you've already put on your foundation/powder then you will have to remove it to get the glitter off, as it simply will not wipe or crush off. I have tried putting my eye makeup on first, wiping off all the glitter, and then putting on foundation. Within an hour the glitter is once again all over my face. So while I can't use this eye shadow on any normal day, it will be perfect on Halloween for when I am a Fairy Princess.
