The Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette ($49) for Fall 2016 hit the beauty airways yesterday. This new 8 shade eyeshadow palette contains a selection of new Moondust Eyeshadows for the glitter addicts in us all.
Urban Decay gets back to their roots with this release and gifts us with a sparkly, glittery selection of shades. Let’s face it, UD has been on the naked, nude road for a while now so, this palette definitely brings the Urban Decay universe back into the correct orbit.
The thing with the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette is the fact it proves a daring release for the brand. Mind you, not because the eyeshadows are glittery but because Moondust Eyeshadow isn’t exactly a popular formula. I think Moondust Eyeshadow is a hit or a miss, a love or a hate formula for most people. You either really love it or you really hate it. Moondust Eyeshadow can produce some incredible eye looks but it takes work and fall out is an issue. Also, some people completely hate glittery eyeshadows and these have a refined glittery finish! Mind you, they aren’t the chunky glittery messy formula you’d find in shades like say Kiddie Pool. They also prove a little denser in texture compared to the original Urban Decay Eyeshadow Collection. I personally like them but I realize they aren’t for everyone.
The palette packs in eight new, exciting shades all of which have a refined, glittery formula and finish.
- Specter (soft pink w/tonal sparkle)
- Element (peach w/pink shift and sparkle)
- Magnetic (purple w/blue sparkle)
- Lightyear (vibrant green w/tonal sparkle)
- Granite (black w/multicolored sparkle)
- Lithium (brown w/iridescent 3-D sparkle)
- Vega (bright blue w/tonal sparkle)
- Galaxy (smoky blue-gray w/iridescent 3-D sparkle)
I don’t know if it screams Fall for anyone but I love sparkle and I’d eat it for breakfast in the morning sprinkled on my cornflakes if I could! So, it’s a yay for me!
How about you?
