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. and had fantastic results using Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners 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...

How to stop your eyeshadow creasing with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

There is a product that can STOP your eyeshadow from creasing! It’s a little miracle and its name 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. I won’t apply my eye make-up without it now! 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...

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 Nirvana Build Your Own palette. 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...

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

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 sometimes be purchased in limited edition colour-coordinated mini collections. This review is just looking at the shade called Covet (more recently re-named Junkie), a brilliant emerald green colour with a lovely shimmer. If you want to find out more about the other colours available then check out my other review of these amazing eye pencils.

The amazing eye pencil you NEED in your life!

The amazing eye pencil you NEED in your life!

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. One of my absolute favourite Urban Decay products (and possibly one of my favourite ever make-up products of all time!) is 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils come in over 40 different shades and I love that so many of them are really bright. There really is a colour to suit everyone, whether you prefer something understated or you love to experiment with a rainbow of shades. This is only a small selection of the shades that are available and I’ve tried quite a few of them over the past few years. Just look at the turquoise (Deep End), blue (Chaos) and Purple (Asphyxia), they’re simply stunning! The pencils have a lovely soft...
