Chase the glitter rainbow with Moondust from Urban Decay

Chase the glitter rainbow with Moondust from Urban Decay

For a long time now I’ve been searching for a seriously glittery eyeshadow. Not just one that shimmers and shines, but one that actually glitters, containing tiny particles of glitter that give serious twinkle when they hit the light. I’ve experimented with actual cosmetic glitter like the fabulous budget range of cosmetic glitters from Stargazer. But I had struggled to find an actual eyeshadow that fitted the bill….. that is until now! This is the stunning Moondust eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay. Urban Decay do palettes so well, and I’d lusted after this one as soon as it was released but sadly it was sold out for ages (as is usual with so many of Urban Decay’s new releases). I finally got my hands on it last month and the wait was worth it! Firstly can we just take a moment to take in the sheer beauty of the Moondust palette…….. The hard case with mirrored word ‘moondust’ on the lid opens to reveal a rainbow of eight round pressed powder eyeshadows...

Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion

This little miracle is Eyeshadow Primer Potion from Urban Decay, and I can’t believe I’ve spent my life up to now without it! It’s one of Urban Decay’s all-time bestselling products and coveted by makeup artists. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is an eyelid primer that you apply before eyeshadow. It helps your eyeshadow to look more vibrant, and what’s more prevents creases for up to 24 hours. It’s a pale translucent creamy colour with a velvety texture, you only need to apply a tiny amount to cover each eyelid. I find the best way to apply it is with your finger. Once you have applied Eyeshadow Primer Potion to your eyelids just put on your eyeshadow as usual. You’ll find that it looks more vibrant and bright than normal – the primer allows the eyeshadow to ‘cling’ and it’s pale translucent formula also brightens the eyelid underneath the eyeshadow meaning the shadow almost glows. The swatch image below shows the Eyeshadow Primer Potion applied quite thickly so that you can...

Urban Decay – Eyeshadows in S&M and Chopper

Urban Decay – Eyeshadows in S&M and Chopper

I’ve had these Urban Decay Eyeshadows for a while, they were given to me by a friend, and they’re two of Urban Decay’s most popular eyeshadow colours – gunmetal grey ‘S&M’ and sparkly copper brown ‘Chopper’. Fans of Urban Decay will know that these two are sporting the old packaging, their eyeshadows have recently had a funky new makeover and whilst they’re still in silvery grey round plastic pots they now look just a little more classy: The new eyeshadow packaging has been created so that the actual pans of colour can be removed from the plastic pot and added to the ‘Build Your Own’ palettes. Anyway, whilst the packaging pots have changed the eyeshadow colours haven’t, so I will go ahead and tell you about the shades S&M and Chopper. S&M is a mid gunmetal grey shade with a shimmer – it looks quite dark in the pot but if applied sparingly it gives the effect of a pale silver, whereas layer it up and it gives a...

Plus Urban Decay is a member of Cruelty Free International, meaning that they have acquired the ‘Leaping Bunny’ stamp and their products are not tested on animals. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils come in such a wide range of bright colours, and they can also be purchased in colour-co-ordinated mini collections. I seem to remember that this Covet pencil came in a collection, I’ve had it quite a while now and wear it a lot, it’s a brilliant emerald green colour with a lovely shimmer. I really love the green colour and I think it goes well with my blue eyes. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils all have a lovely velvety soft texture meaning they are really easy to apply, plus they are waterproof and really long lasting, they don’t smudge at all when you are wearing them, but remove really easily with...

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant

I am a massive fan of Urban Decay cosmetics, they have funky packaging, great palettes and I love the use of sparkle, glimmer and glitter within their products. Plus Urban Decay is a member of Cruelty Free International, meaning that they have acquired the ‘Leaping Bunny’ stamp and their products are not tested on animals. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils come in such a wide range of bright colours, and they can also be purchased in colour-co-ordinated mini collections. Deviant is a dark blue colour with tiny flecks of silver glitter in, you can just about make out the silver flecks in the swatch image below. I really love the blue colour and the pencil has a lovely velvety soft texture meaning it is really easy to apply. Despite having blue eyes this blue colour still really suits me, I think because it is nice and dark. I prefer to wear it on my upper lashline only, as it can look a bit too much worn underneath the eyes aswell....
