Urban Decay continues to indulge our love for sparkle with the new Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($29 CAD). This cream shadow comes in eight shades that give an impactful and glittery look to the eyes with a formula that dazzles with iridescent sparkles and 3D metallics. The formula can be blended out, (you have to be fast as it sets to a budgeproof finish in 30 seconds), built up, or layered with powder shadows.
I don’t often post images of exterior packaging but the boxes the Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows are packaged in are too beautiful not to share.
The packaging is nice because you can see the product inside which makes selecting the colour you want to use easy. The applicator is small brush applicator that is cut very unevenly. I think this is to aid it in picking up the product. It still applies smoothly to the eye.
The eight shades are:
- Chem Trail – oyster with iridescent sparkle
- Zap – gold with tonal sparkle
- Spacetime – deep coppery bronze with iridescent sparkle
- Recharged – peach with pink shift and sparkle
- Solstice – pink-red with green 3D sparkle and shift
- Vega – bright blue with iridescent sparkle (not shown)
- Magnetic – purple with iridescent sparkle
- Zodiac – smoky black with blue-green shift and blue-green 3D sparkle
I find the best way to use this shadows is layered over a powder shadow. When applied to bare lids I find they just look too patchy. Trying to build them up to a more opaque finish just results in a chunky finish. Layering over other eyeshadows creates a really gorgeous and multidimensional sparkle effect. If you layer these over the powder Moondust shadows you will really be turning heads! You can blend out with your finger over a powder shadow or apply more densley with the applicator on your lash line for a more concentrated layer of sparkle. These set fast so make sure to apply one eye at a time and blend right away.
When it comes right down to it I know I will likely be too lazy to bother layering and blending these over other shadows and would be more prone to just reach for the powder Moondust shadows when looking for some sparkle. But hey, that’s just me. If you love playing with glitter, sparkle, duochrome, and iridescent finishes in your looks I do think you will enjoy these.
