I was given this shadow as a gift, and I absolutely love it. It is such a gorgeous colour, I can't get enough of it. It blends right in with the UD neutrals (or your naked palette) for a really nice brown smokey eye.
It is a really nice shimmery warm chocolate brown/ bronze.
Try it at Sephora if you aren't sure!

I bought this on a whim, it didn't look like much in the store but I needed a pretty brown shadow so I thought I would give it a try. When I applied it, I was pleasantly surprised that it is a bit of a plummy brown, with perfect sheen. I use it all over my lid, as I like a dramatic depth on my lid and not just in my crease. Looks great with a champagne highlight on the browbone and black liner. Wears well all day without creasing, wearing off or grease soaking through. I will buy again and be trying a few other colors.

I adore this color! It is rather pricey, but it's so quality that you'll be able to look past that with no problem. Even though I received a free tester of this, I would definitely re-purchase this item once I run out. It's one of my go-to colors for a smokey eye. It's amazingly pigmented, rather tedious to mix with other drugstore eye shadows such as CG because it just over powers them with its top-notch brilliance. Although, I will admit it's not impossible, the key is to blend the roach like mad so the other three neutral colors I put on my lid and brow bone don't go completely unnoticed. Further more it stays on all day for me, even without any sort of base or eye primer to assist it. I can't imagine how much more brilliant the color would be if I did...The only qualm I have with this product is that it comes in such small packaging for such a high price. Such is life with Prestige cosmetics though. I'd still like to experiment with other Urban Decay colors beyond Roach though. This particular shadow has convinced me!

I like this shadow by itself or in the crease with last call on the lid. I love it with my brown eyes!

I purchased this eyeshadow as previous reviewers said it enhanced brown/hazel eyes. I got it from eBay, and categorically can tell you I would not pay full retail price for it.
Overall, I like it. The colour is pretty, a warm bronzey brown that can be applied all over the lid for a dramatic look or just in the crease and along the lashes as a more daytime look. I just really don't think it justifies the huge price tag. To be frank, it's just another brown eyeshadow to add to the plethora of brown eyeshadows I already own. Plus, I don't really like the packaging all that much.
If you are in the UK, Natural Collection (from Boots) do a fairly good dupe of this colour (Asteroid) but it's only £1.79!

I purchased this color based on reviews on this board but was disappointed when I received it from Sephora. I now give this color 4 stars because it is a much nicer color then appears in the pot. The color is difficult to describe, in the pot it looks like an eggplant color but on me it goes on mostly bronze-y reddish, very pigmented and dark but not saturated. I use this for a smudgy liner and it makes my hazel eyes look really green. This color also looks stunning lightly applied as an all over lid color for a very beautiful smokey eye. I goes on smoothly and blends beautifully. This color might not be for everyone...really very dark.

Gorgeous eye color. Looks great with my green eyes. It's not as copper to me but it does a bit of a warmer tone to it. Awesome crease accent. UD eyeshadows also go on so smooth with no excess or creasing. just perfect!!!

Love this shade! Others have described it well below. This is a very similar shade to MAC Twinks, but I would say that Twinks has a little more plum than red in comparison. Though I think Roach has a much smoother, more buttery texture than Twinks. Love to wear Roach with UD Toasted (or MAC Sable). I am a warm brown eyeshadow junkie and this fits the bill perfectly. If you love this shade also check out TF Dirt Bag which is also similar!

Holy moly I LOOOVE this color! Slightly reddish/coppery mid-toned brown. Nicely pigmented and blends beautifully. It's absolutely perfect as a neutral crease color on me. Roach + Toasted + Sin = AWESOME neutral eye.

This shadow is a dark reddish chocolate that I find looks absolutely gorgeous with hazel eyes. It is highly pigmented, has a lovely sheen (like most UD shadows) and works as a crease or lid color. I found that it has decent staying power and blends quite well. Highly recommend!

This turned out to be beautiful plummy brown (almost bronzed) color on me. So I was pleasantly surprised as I thought this might be too reddish for me. This is of course smooth and very pigmented, and is about a medium shade of brown so with my skin tone I can get away with using it all over my lid. No glitter, just a sheen. I definitely recommend picking this up or at least swatching this color because it is a unique addition to a collection of neutrals.

Roach is a warm reddish-brown. I like using UD's Half Baked all over my lid then applying this to the crease. It really makes my brown eyes look amazing! Not too crazy about the name, although I think it's meant in terms of marijuana, NOT the disgusting bug, at least that's what I hope! I would definitely repurchase this as it's a wonderful compliment to any neutral eye! LOVE IT!!

This eyeshadow is just beautiful!This was my second Urban Decay eyeshadow and I'm very impressed they are very pigmented and long lasting, and blend easily. Roach is a warm reddish brown that goes well with just about any color. I mainly use it in my crease to make my brown eyes pop. I received this in a swap and I'm glad I got it. The packaging it comes in is so adorable!

this caught my eye immediately in the shop. but i bought it originally to spice up a pale pink cream eyeshadow. i did this for a week or so, when one day i was in a rush so i just used this on its own, and boy am i glad i did! i never realised what an intriguing colour this was! it's best described as a burgandy brown with a hint of copper. a previous reviewer was right to recommend this with generous black eyeliner and black mascara when it comes to us brown-eyed ladies.
lovely pigmented silky and blendable shadow that brings out any eye colour and is not to be missed by any make-up lover.
also i don't understand the name either. it makes me feel uneasy. they should have called it 'cinnamon' or 'raisin' or something. it is quite unique though, especially when the brand has 'decay' in the name!

This eyeshadow is just divine! This was my first UD eyeshadow and I'm very impressed they are very pigmented and long lasting, and blend easily. Roach is a warm reddish brown that goes well with just about any color! I mainly use it in my crease to make my brown eyes pop. I received this in a swap and I'm glad I got to try it. The name Roach really doesn't fit the color but hey. Also the packaging they come in is so adorable!

wonderful red brown crease colour!!! its fantastic for those of us with blue eyes. it may have already been mentioned but this colour is almost identical to mac 100 strokes. i adore this with ud ydk, ud x, ud sin and mac flip :)

Roach is one of UD's finest shadows! It's a great neutral pink color that goes with just about anything! Great pigmentation & staying power too!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Tan, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Such a beautiful, everyday color. I love the pigmentation and there's no blatant glitter fall out. I'm really beginning to love UD much better than MAC.

This is such an interesting color. A very vibrant, intense warm brown that sometimes pulls a lot of red for me. A great crease color, I'm very impressed. I only said that I wouldn't buy it again because I have it in 2 palettes and it will be awhile before I use it up! This color is very versatile. Urban Decay shadows are well-known for being intensely pigmented. This is one of Urban Decay's shimmer shadows, where it's a nice sheen/shimmer but not a ton of glitter like a lot of their shadows have. Truly lovely!

This is a lovely warm brown, highly pigmented and with a lovely intensity you don't often see with browns. I use this mainly as an outer corner, crease colour or as a liner - it's great applied wet. As with all the UD colurs, blendable and smooth with great lasting power.
