Urban Decay Troublemaker Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Troublemaker Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep oxblood [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep, blackened purple with warm, pink undertones and a natural finish. MAC Cyber (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Hutch (LE, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Berry Rouge (LE, $26.00) is glossier (100% similar). NARS Train Bleu (P, $25.00) is warmer, less glossy (95% similar). Maybelline Blackest Berry (P, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Nevermind (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).

This is a new, limited edition shade exclusively available at Sephora, and it will debut on November 2nd. The consistency was lightly creamy–enough that it didn’t drag across the lips but didn’t slide around while worn–and seemed to become a little more emollient as it warmed up on the lips. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly and lasted for six and a half hours, while also leaving behind a stain. The formula felt lightly hydrating over time.

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.84 oz.) includes 21 eyeshadows (each is 0.04 oz.) in a variety of rainbow-inspired hues. It’s a new, limited edition palette for the holidays. While it has some similarity to last year’s Spectrum palette, the packaging is different–the lid now is hinged and lifts off of the palette, rather than fully removes (which is a complaint often made about last year’s palette!)–and it also contains more eyeshadows (21 vs. 15). If you normally use a primer or don’t mind using a white base to get the most bang out of the eyeshadows in the palette, you might enjoy it. On the other hand, if you want intense, totally opaque coverage in one pass, this might leave you wanting more as there are several shades that are either sheerer, dustier, or a combination of both. The palette launches on October 26th at Urban Decay and will follow shortly to other retailers after that.

I liked the concept of the palette–brights, more muted takes on brights, mattes and frosts–and how it was arranged overall. I think they could have opted to put in a more matte black instead of Midnight Blaze/Platonic for more versatility. If all of the more matte shades were like Calavera, it might have been a really superb palette, but as is, it didn’t blow me away. The more shimmery shades were decent to good, but they are not as smooth or as richly pigmented as last year’s Urban Spectrum palette (which is what made it a real standout in a sea of palettes).

Also, I counted one more repromote than the press release–Alchemy, Hatter, Goldmine, and Metamorphosis are all repromotes. And for those who were curious how it overlaps with Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix, you can see the comparison here.

Alchemy is a subdued, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a fairly soft, smooth texture that was just a touch dry in the pan, but it blended out without issue and adhered nicely to bare skin. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Too Faced Sprinkles (Holiday 2016) (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). City Color It's a Girl (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Plum Dressing (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #9 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Sangria (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Sugarpill Magentric (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Ciate Fierce (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Rewind (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more muted (80% similar). Zoeva Warm Notes (P) is more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Warning is a medium-dark copper with warm, red undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The texture felt a little looser in the pan, and as a result, somewhat dusty, but it seemed to go on better on the lid as I worked with it in a smaller area than swatched. It did apply better when patted on, rather than swept on. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is brighter (95% similar). LORAC Rust (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #3 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Coppering (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop White Rabbit (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Oxidize (LE) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NYX Fireball (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Doce (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Let's Roll (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Midnight Blaze is a blackened brown with warmer, olive undertones and a fine pearl sheen. This was a terrible shade; it was extremely stiff and firm in the pan, which resulted in very sheer, uneven coverage that was only achievable when I scraped powder from the surface of the pan as it was just that stiff in the pan. It was hard to blend, but on the upside, it lasted for a whole six hours. Lancome Misty Morning (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek High Tea (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Jade (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Clarins Forest #1 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). theBalm D4 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Kat Von D Vox (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Olive Blend #2 (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hundred is a medium-dark forest green with cooler undertones and warmer, golden shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that blended out nicely and wore for eight hours. Milani Bella Emerald (18) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sugarpill Junebug (P, $13.00) is warmer (95% similar). Inglot #418 (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 (DC, $20.00) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Humid (P, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Minx is a deep navy blue with fine, lighter blue pearl over a mostly matte finish. The texture was soft, silky to the touch, but it was thin and dusty, so it sheered out easily and could look patchy if applied without a primer. This is the type of eyeshadow texture that really needs the smoothness of a primer for better color payoff, wear, and application. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Inglot #321 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #4 (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #9 (P) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Delirious is a medium-dark plum with warmer undertones and very fine violet pearl over a matte finish. For all intents and purposes, it was a matte shade, as the shimmer was undetectable once applied to the lid. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, blendable texture that didn’t turn patchy even over bare skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Deep Dahlia (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #2 (P) is warmer (95% similar). Stila Plum (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Platonic is a deep black with warmer undertones and silver shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage, and part of that was due to the firmer, thinner texture that made it harder to work with–I had trouble just getting product onto the brush, on top of the frustration when I tried to get the color to apply evenly to the lid or diffuse around the edges. It lasted for seven hours on me. Lancome Midnight Purple (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Panther (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Espresso Blend #2 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Lunar Eclipse (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Licorice (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gossip is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a soft, pearl shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture, but it applied well and blended out easily. The color wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Jerrica (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seize is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and an iridescent, pink-to-peach shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage paired with a soft, thinner texture that was a touch dusty but wouldn’t even be noticeable if used over a primer. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours. MAC Full of Flavour (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Free to Be (DC, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Calavera is a bright, light-medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and fine gold pearl over a matte finish. The consistency was finely-milled, smooth, and a little denser while still being very blendable on the lid. There was noticeable fall out with this shade during application, but it did not sheer out too easily, so it was fairly easy to get true-to-pan color. I found that it tended to darken and look more muted when applied over bare skin, but over a primer, it retained more of its brightness. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Kat Von D Fran (LE)(95% similar). Illamasqua Hype (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Phresh (LE, $12.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Wet 'n' Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren't Up #1 (LE, $2.29) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hatter is a bright, medium grass green with cooler undertones and a fine pearl over a matte finish. On the lid, it looked and acted like a matte finish, as I could not see the shimmer. The consistency was thinner, dustier, and prone to sheering out without some sort of primer underneath it. The color started to fade after seven hours on me. I had faint staining with this shade when used without a primer. Make Up For Ever S312 Mint Green (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Cusp (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

NARS Mad Mad World #2 (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Inglot #384 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blindsided is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and fine, sky blue pearl over a matte finish. There was more shimmer in this shade than some of the other shimmer-and-matte eyeshadows in the palette, so I felt like they were more visible, but they were still subtle overall. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and felt velvety–had some bulk to it so that it applied well to bare skin and did not just blend away to a faded mess. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Inglot #371 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Gonzo (P) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Mad Mad World #1 (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Blue Candy (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Sketch is a medium-dark violet purple with subtle, cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a slightly firmer texture, though it wasn’t so firm that it became difficult to use. The color blended out without too much fuss, and it wore for eight hours before fading noticeably. Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #5 (LE) is brighter (95% similar). Viseart Violet (P) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). MAC Satellite Dreams (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Inglot #441 (P, $6.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar).

Iced is a pale silver with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lot of loose glitter/sparkle that separated from the base shade, so there was fall out during wear and during application. The consistency was drier, looser, and chunkier, which made it harder to use. The base color lasted six and a half hours on me. Colour Pop Gecko (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC In the Meadow #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Silver Screen (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Tower Bridge (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Paranoia is a light-medium pinky-lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that applied better over a primer than bare skin, but it was, at least, workable on bare skin. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Too Faced Jelly (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Punch Fuchsia (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Goldmine is a light-medium gold with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen with some larger, chunkier sparkle. The sparkly bits tended to pull away from the base, so they ended up falling out during application or later on during wear. The consistency had a denser, chunkier feel to it, and I found a flatter, synthetic brush seemed to apply the eyeshadow best. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Mean is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and warmer golden sheen. It had nice color payoff paired with a smooth, thinner texture that wasn’t dusty or powdery, which made it easy to work with on bare skin for both my initial application as well as for blending it out. This shade wore for eight hours on me. MAC Chartreuse Bouquet (LE, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #171 (DC, $20.00) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Tropical Princess #1 (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Sour (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Green Clean #2 (LE) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I-30 (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lucky Green (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Birdcage (LE) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #2 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Mermaid Kiss (DC, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #17 (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Nice Energy (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Vinyl (LE) is less shimmery, more muted (85% similar). Sugarpill Mint Soda (P, $13.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Metamorphosis is a bright, medium-dark periwinkle blue with cool undertones and fine pearl over a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage as a result of the very thin, dusty texture–it was just so prone to sheering out. Even over a primer, it looked faded and somewhat uneven. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Hello Kitty Dear Daniel (LE) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Luxe Life (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Serenity (LE) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Atlantic Blue (P, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Self Portrait 1 #2 (LE, $25.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Heroine (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Echo (LE) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Faded is a subdued, medium-dark purple with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. While a lot of the “matte” eyeshadows had “floating pearl” (Urban Decay’s terminology), this one seemed to have larger sparkle. I found that the larger size seemed to make this even harder to apply, as the sparkles would pull away from the purple base but also pull some of the purple eyeshadow away, which resulted in sheer, uneven coverage. I had better luck using this over an eyeshadow primer, but it was still a fussy shade to blend out. It worked better layered over another eyeshadow. The color started to fade after seven hours on me. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Indian Ink (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Violet (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Gone Mad (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar). Smashbox Orchid (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Venom (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Ribbon (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bump is a stark white with a semi-matte finish. It seemed to have just a smidgen of shimmer to it–something to make it appear more satiny and not have as much excess product kicked up in the pan. The texture was finely-milled, smooth, and just a touch dusty at times. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage which stayed true for seven and a half hours. Too Faced Extra Creamy (LE, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Vapour (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Ivy (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Chandelier (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Tako (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Mod #1 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #00 (DC, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Chill (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Linen (LE) is cooler (95% similar).

A palette that not only looks stunning, but also delivers tons of options. Create dimensional ombré looks by working within the color-coordinated trios or experiment with multiple shade groups at once. With 18 NEW shades, three exclusives from past palettes, and a wide range of finishes, you’ll never run out of options.

In 2015, we launched Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette in limited quantities, and people freaked out trying to get their hands on it. And if you thought that palette was amazing, you’ll be blown away by Full Spectrum. This set ups the ante with our BIGGEST, most colorful palette yet! From super-smooth mattes to shimmer-laced shades, this palette has something for EVERY color junkie.

Urban Decay Spacetime, Zodiac, Vega, Magnetic Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Spacetime Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a dirty, medium-dark khaki bronze with warm undertones and pink and green sparkle over a more metallic finish. The texture was smooth and more blendable than the majority of the shades in the formula, and this was one of the few that could actually be worn as an opaque layer of product. It was buildable from medium coverage. This shade wore well for nine hours with no fall out whether applied as a single layer or applied as two layers. The application was still fussy, and it was easy to blend it too much and get a patchy mess, but it was one of the few that I could actually apply decently. Anastasia Truffle Glitter (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Sushi Green (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Brownie (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lithium (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Buxom Haute Couture (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, warmer, better quality (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Zodiac Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a blackened green with warm undertones and copper, emerald green, and gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque, buildable coverage. The consistency wasn’t as watery as other shades, though it had a tendency to sheer out rather than building up–you have to be completely certain that each layer has dried down. It started to look rough and textured with anything more than two layers. I had no fallout when I applied this as a sinigle layer, and I had no fallout or flaking when I applied two layers. MAC Greenluxe #4 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Midnight (P, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Bird of Prey (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Luxurious Boot Camp (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Vega Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and silver and blue sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation with two layers. The texture was unforgiving when used as two layers, as the color would clump up and look chunky. It was hard to blend out, so it always had a look of patchy, uneven coverage, so it would work better over a darker base color, which would help fill in the gaps. It wore well for nine hours with no fallout when I used one layer, and when I used two layers, I had some minor flakes over an eight hour period. Urban Decay Vega (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Illamasqua Alluvium (P, $25.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Midnight (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME216 Electric Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Lit Cosmetics Bar Star (P, $12.95) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Lit Cosmetics Elton John (P, $12.95) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Gamma Ray (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Anastasia Star Cobalt (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Make Up For Ever D222 Night Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). NARS Cressida (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). MAC Wintersky (LE, $32.50) is less shimmery, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Magnetic Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warmer undertones and pink and copper sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation. The texture of this shade seemed a bit thicker, a little more like a liquid-cream, and it remained blendable for longer (but fast enough that it didn’t crease). It does thicken and add texture to the lid if applied in two layers, but it was not as bad as some shades in the range. When I wore it as a single layer, it lasted for nine hours with no fall out, and when I wore it as two layers, it lasted well for nine hours with minor fall out but no flaking. NARS Canberra (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Kauai #2 (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Delinquent (DC, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Get Physical (LE, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Pinkluxe #4 (P) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Grand Galaxy (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “liquid version” of the powder-based Moondust Eyeshadow formula. The difference (besides consistency!) is that these are designed to have a buildable formula that can be used on the lash line, over other eyeshadows on the lid, or on its own, and once it dries down, it “won’t budge or crease.” I felt like it was an overly fussy product, and I think it takes extra work and very specific preference to make them “worth it.” I’d much rather use the regular Moondust eyeshadow, which is even $1.00 cheaper (it is hard to compare liquid vs. powder weights, so there could be more uses in one than the other).

For the most part, they’re sheer to semi-sheer and somewhat buildable, but the texture doesn’t support layering. I don’t think they are that usable on their own, because they dry down quickly and are hard to blend out–they look patchy and uneven–and trying to build-up color by putting additional product on the same area always resulted in a thick, chunky, and uneven disaster on the eye. I tried layering them over eyeshadow as well, and from afar, it can be pretty, but they look horrific close-up as they are the same on top of something else: uneven with poorly distributed sparkle. The tiniest dab on the inner lid that you don’t touch or blend opened up the eye, but I tried brushes (including the brand’s Moondust brush), fingertips, silicone applicators, and the included brush (on the applicator) to no avail. I only had moderate success using the included applicator and layering it over eyeliner.

The formula itself was inconsistent every time I used a shade, because the product doesn’t seem to be well mixed, which results in sheerer and thinner, more pigmented and chunkier consistencies. They don’t really mix up, but you can try to twist and maneuver the wand into the product to try and mix it that way. The highlight of the formula is that there was virtually no fall out across all the shades except for when I tried to layer or build-up color, then sometimes I’d get a big chunk that would flake off entirely, but when worn on top of liner or as a single layer of product (on top of eyeshadow or alone), I had no fall out.

I also found the included applicator is particularly disappointing; it does nothing to improve application as it is a coarser brush that’s rather stiff, which means that it is hard to get any evenness out of it. It tends to glob product on rather than give you a sense of precision. The coarser bristles hold product in them unevenly as well. It is the type of brush that when pull it across the skin in one fluid motion, the product pulls to the side and leaves almost nothing in the middle.
