Love/hate relationship! This is the most gorgeous duochrome lavender with a blue shift but it's very frustrating to work with. Be prepared to layer several layers to get the color to show up as a...

Asphyxia doesn’t do much for me. The color is so beautiful in the pan, but it has almost no pigmentation when applied. I like it better when applied with neutrals rather than by itself. Maybe I...

Not for ME! Perhaps its my complextion or skin tone. I'm an NC30/NC35 and NC38 in the summer. The texture isn't my favourite, it's not soft. As for the colour it is a grungy colour, i don't...

As far as eyeshadow quality goes, Urban Decay is one of the best. They are a cruelty-free company, so I purchase a lot of my makeup from them for that reason. I have had this eyeshadow for a few...

I wanted so much to like Asphyxia...purple is my favorite color, but THIS purple just wasn't working with my complexion. I'm very fair-skinned, dirty blonde hair and brownish-green eyes. I...

I agree with previous reviews saying that you can't even tell you're wearing this. It is such a beautiful color in the pan but on the lid it isn't noticeable at all. I have olive skin and tried...

I love this eyeshadow. I normally use neutrals but I'm bored with that so I decided to give this a try. It's GORGEOUS. I don't have any problems with this showing up at all and it lasted all...

I got Asphyxia in UD's Wallpaper Palette, and its my favorite color in the palette. It's this gorgeous shimmering lavender, which a gorgeous bluish iridescence. I wish the color pay off was better,...

Maybe I'm crazy (or maybe the formula has changed as I bought mine a few years - at least - ago) but I dug this out today feeling "springy". Noticed in the reviews here that it's like Grifter...

We've got a winner, ladies! In general I steer away from eye shadows significantly lighter than my skin tone (I tend to feel that they wash me out), but I'v been trying to find a day-look...
