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 – 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...

Barry M – Textured Glitter Nail Paint in Princess

Barry M – Textured Glitter Nail Paint in Princess

I recently reviewed Barry M Textured Glitter Nail Paint in Majesty (you can read that review here) and I loved it so much that I then went out and bought it in 2 more shades! I absolutely adore a good glitter nail polish, and I rate them on how dense the glitter is. Some glittery polishes look amazing in the bottle, but then when you paint them onto the nails they look sad and washed out, and you need at least 4 coats to get a good glittery coverage… not so with Textured Glitter Nail Paints from nail polish gurus Barry M! After just one coat the nail is covered with glitter and it’s so sparkly. Princess is a lovely pale pink colour with a gold shimmer and silver glitter. I don’t think the colour is as vivid as the gold Majesty colour, but it’s really pretty and ladylike. The image above shows how it looks after just 2 coats. The silver glitter particles are very small and densely...

I absolutely adore a good glitter nail polish, and I rate them on how dense the glitter is. Some glittery polishes look amazing in the bottle, but then when you paint them onto the nails they look sad and washed out, and you need at least 4 coats to get a good glittery coverage… not so with this Textured Glitter Nail Paint in Majesty from nail polish gurus Barry M! I think this gold glitter polish has possibly the densest ‘glitter to polish’ ratio I have ever experienced, after just one coat the nail is covered with glitter and it’s so sparkly. I’m in love! In the photo above I have only applied 2 coats and you can see that the nails are completely covered in golden glittery loveliness! Majesty is part of Barry M’s Royal Textured Glitter Collection, there are 5 colours available in total. The golden glitter particles are very small and densely packed into the clear matt varnish, and the polish gives a rough textured feel...
