Urban Decay Vice LTD Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice LTD Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a mix of neutrals with a few pops of color, but the contents aren’t nearly as bright as the exterior packaging, which is a vibrant chartreuse. The packaging is very much the same as Vice3. I thought the formula felt different in Vice LTD compared to Vice3 but also compared to Urban Decay’s formula (since reformulation) in general. The eyeshadows felt a bit firmer in their pans (not in a bad way), less powdery in general. The more colorful shades seemed weaker in color payoff, and I didn’t have as much luck with some shades applying to bare skin as I have in the past with the brand’s formula, so wear time was shorter on average. I liked it more than Vice3, though, by a bit. Disco, Heat, Floss, Hoodoo, and Roadstripe are shades new-to-me (I believe Roadstripe existed many, many moons ago), while the other shades have been released in various palettes over the years (noted by the shade itself).

Urban Decay Cosmic, Ether, Scorpio, Solstice Moondust Eyeshadows

For spring, there are four new shades of Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to a “brilliantly reflective look” that can be applied wet or dry (the brand recommends applying with fingertips). It’s supposed to have “sophisticated” sparkle and not “chunky glitter.” They’re really pretty and dazzling, and they’re certainly going to be more reflective and sparkly in person or as they move than in a still shot. That being said, there is a fair amount of fall out applying these, and there is some fall out over time (it is surprisingly less than you’d expect, given just how packed these are with sparkle!). The sparkle is finer than true glitter, and the flecks love to adhere to my under eye area. It seems like only full makeup remover and a cotton pad or tape will remove the majority. The texture feels fairly smooth in the pan and almost has a wet consistency. They tend to work best with a dampened brush (wetter than I’d normally use for a regular eyeshadow as well).

Round-up: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks Overview & Thoughts

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a range of ten shades that are sheerer, but still more pigmented than not, compared to the original Revolution formula. The shades are inspired by (with the exception of Sheer Slowburn) shades in the original range as well, so if you own the original, you could probably skip these and just sheer it out yourself. That being said, if you like a sheerer application and often apply while out and about, then you may appreciate the convenience of the sheer formula.

Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn, Sheer F-Bomb, Sheer Shame Sheer Revolution Lipsticks

Here are the last three shades of the new Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.). This formula is supposed to have “sheer, pigmented color” with a “high-shine finish” and “buttery-smooth application.” The texture is thicker than traditional lip balm, but it has the “stiffer” feel where it starts to melt upon contact of the lips. It isn’t as thick or as creamy as the original Revolution formula (and obviously, these aren’t as pigmented). The pigmentation is semi-sheer to semi-opaque noticeable translucency but still that “sheer (yet still pigmented!)” color they seemed to be after. I wish I found these hydrating, but they weren’t drying either.
