This is one of my favorite colors from Urban Decay! Even though it's slightly glittery, I can still wear it as a liner or crease color everyday.

AC/DC is a very beautiful purple with a reflective effect of blue/purple (blurple) but can be patchy on the eye. I would usually use this as a crease or outer third colour in a smokey eye, as all over the eye would be too over whelming. It has a little bit of subtle shimmer but it is hard to see on the eyes. I would use UDPP under this so it wouldn't be as patchy as it sometimes is. Please swatch in the shop.

I love this! Not just the color, but texture of the shadow is perfect too. It is easy to apply and blend. It's not too shimmery, but not flat either. It gives somewhat of a sheen finish. I have a lot of purple eyeshadows but nothing is quite like AC/DC. I'm asian NC37 with dark brown eyes and this really compliments me. I love to wear it at night for a sexy smokey look.

Great Color! A medium purple w/ a hint of steel gray...I have brown eyes and it looks so pretty on. Nicely pigmented. Lasts all day w/ UDPP.

Such an amazing colour. I have a million purple eyeshadows, and not one dupe even similar to this one. It's a medium-tone slightly greyish purple with shimmer. Very pretty shade and great texture.

I really like this shadow! It's a really grey/silvery purple. It could even be described as a purple-ish grey. :P It looks really good with Crash 24/7 eyeliner, and if you have it (or want to buy it online since it's discontinued), Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner in Headbanger.

I love the deep eggplant color of this shadow. I actually got it in the BOS2. I love wearing it with a lighter purple color or a pink color.

Urban Decay AC/DC is a gorgeous deep smokey eggplant purple. The pigmentation is intense and the color itself is stunning! I love wearing this with Twisted or Pallor. Also works equally well as a liner. I really hate that UD discontinued this beauty! This is one of my all time favorite Urban Decay shadows!!

It's a shame they don't still make this awesome eyeshaodw. It's a gorgous dark puprle, almost black. It's like metropolitan but darker and less pink. It has silver glitter. It's great to use as a liner with stalker or last call on the the lid and metroploitan in the crease. I would especially reconmend this eyeshadow if like me you have green eyes. This as a liner makes my eyes pop!

I wish I could have tried this at the store, but it's discontinued, sadly, and might only be available through Ebay and swapping. I ordered mine via Ebay.
I have the AC/DC in the old, screw-top packaging. In the pan, the eyeshadow looks to be deepest, eggplant purple with a medium-high dense amount of silver microglitter. On my eyelids, though, this is a matte blackened muted deep purple with a smattering of falling silver glitter.
When I test the eyeshadow on my hand, a close viewing reveals that the eyeshadow is mildly shimmery (violet with hints of pink shimmer), but this IMO does not show up on on lids, even when you use AC/DC wet.
I would try to use this color over a more shimmery base, or in conjunction with warmer burgundy toned color like Metropolitan or Last Call to bring out the purple tones and to add dimension.

How disappointing! After seeing the reviews and product discriptions I couldn't wait to get it deleivered. The packaging was great, a lifted the lid to see a beautiful deep purple with gorgeus shimmery bits. Then I put it on. Awful. The deep lush purple turned into a grey sludge on my eyes. Where did all the purple go?!

this shadow is good for a plum smokey eye. it has a little dose of glitter in it for some shimmer if you apply if heavy. it also can double to line your eyes. it's one of my favorite colors of the UD eyeshadows.

This is one of my all time favorite dark smoky eye colors, I love it. UD shadows blend well, come in great colors and are highly pigmented. I love them all so much.

Lovely, plum/egglplant colored shadow with silver glitter. Would definitely buy/swap again!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This eyeshadow is a dark eggplant shade with tiny silver sparkle. The sparkle doesn't show up well, but this color is great as a liner.

MMM very sexy sultry purple, almost an eggplant. I'm not sure why they picked the name though. Tiny silver glitters in it so definitely use your visine :) I like to use it as part of my smoky eye look!

This deep, rich purple is soft and highly pigmented, so it makes an excellent eyeliner, wet or dry. The silver microglitter adds a touch of interest without screaming sparkle. Once on, it's not obviously colored, more like a soft black, but the underlying purple tones really draw out green or brown eyes. Only thing I don't like is the cool but impractical tin packaging, as the lid tends to get wedged on if you carry it around.

This was a great deep purple shimmer. It looks great as eyeliner - I'd never wear it over my whole eye because it's so dark. It stays on and doesn't flake off my eyes.

This has to be the most perfect shimmery eggplant-purple shadow used for liner. Once I finished my Stila Dahlia Shadow, I was in search for a more purple and more shimmery shadow to use wet as liner. Dahlia is more of a blackened royal purple and it can be too dark at times and it has no shimmer. And since I love the UD Oil Slick shadow, which is a black with rainbow microglitter, I figured that I would give AC/DC a chance. AC/DC is the eggplant-purple version of Oil Slick, but the glitter is silver. This shadow is a major rave for me!! The ultimate shimmery eggplant-purple liner shadow!! And when you move your face in different directions, the glimmer is amazing!! Truly Unique!
