Urban Decay has put together a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Vault that will include 40 full-sized eyeliners and will retail for $295 and be available for sale on Urban Decay on March 26th. (If you’re doing the math like me, the set is a value of $760.)  It includes all 40 shades of Urban Decay’s Eyeliners.

If you missed it on Urban Decay… SEPHORA launched it this AM! :)

Urban Decay’s newest glitter/sparkle formula will launch on their website on the 9th. I reviewed all but Intergalactic, which I do not have.

Urban Decay Glitter Rock Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Glitter Rock Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Glitterrock Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic pink with pink 3-D sparkle.” It’s a plummy pink with silver sparkle and a frosted, metallic finish. It’s a bit like a cross between Urban Decay Provocateur and Urban Decay Bordello. MAC Neo Nebula is pinker. Giorgio Armani #7 is a touch warmer.

The consistency was softer and smoother than the last few I’ve reviewed, but the color was less buildable than the best of this range. It is sheer when applied dry, and then it builds to semi-opaque coverage when applied damp but really has to be patted and packed on. Glitterrock had similar fall out issues to the rest of the range, but it wore for eight hours without creasing, fading, or getting patchy.  On the lid, it looked smokier than it did when swatched; as it blends out, the underlying base color seems to darken and gray out. For a comparison to their Stardust eyeshadows, please read this review.

Glitterrock wasn't the worst performer, but it wasn't the best (within the range). You might consider trying Urban Decay's Bordello if you like the color.

Urban Decay Moonspoon Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Moonspoon Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Moonspoon Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “medium gray with bright silver sparkle.” It is a warm gray base color with brighter silver sparkle. MAC Double Feature 2 #2 is satiny but similar in darkness. Inglot #444 is warmer, no sparkle.

It was rather sheer when applied dry, and it was more pigmented when applied damp but only managed to get to semi-opaque color–it was amplified by a lot of sparkle and shimmer but the base color stayed rather subtle. Moonspoon wasn’t as smooth as the other shades; there was a touch of grittiness to the larger particles of sparkle. It did not apply as smoothly or as evenly, and it was harder to blend it out when I tried using it on the lid. It seemed to stick in places. This shade lasted for eight hours without creasing, but it did seem a bit patchy, and of course, there was fall out during application but continued fall out throughout the day. For a comparison to their Stardust eyeshadows, please read this review.

I wish this had a softer, smoother texture that applied better. It would be dreamy, too, if there was no fall out, but at least it could be more successful on the other points!

Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “light champagne with bright silver sparkle.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium brown base with lighter champagne and beige shimmer and sparkle. bareMinerals Kudos is less sparkly and almost has a little duochrome. shu uemura P Soft Beige 832 has a pearly finish. MAC Summer Haze is warmer–a little peachy. MAC Sweet Satisfaction has a satin finish.

Space Cowboy had similar color payoff used both dry and wet; applying it damp did intensify the underlying base color ever-so-slightly. Even the finish is the same: sparkly, metallic, but it doesn’t smooth down as fully as other shades in the range. It retains a more frosted finish. This shade gave me more problems with fall out compared to the others–it just didn’t seem to bind/adhere as well. It worked best when really pressed against the lid using a sponge-tip applicator. Within the shade range, this is the most “everyday” kind of color–the kind where you can just sweep it on and go (well, technically, not practically!). It wore seven hours but lightly creased by eight hours. For a comparison to their Stardust eyeshadows, please read this review.

This shade creased slightly after eight hours, and it had even more fall out compared to the other shades. It was not as buildable either, so it was missing the marks all around.

Urban Decay Diamond Dog Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Diamond Dog Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Diamond Dog Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep brown with white-gold sparkle.” It’s a medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and an orange-tan undertone and champagne sparkle/shimmer. Chanel Intuition #3 is less sparkly. Urban Decay Nevermind is warmer and less sparkly. MAC Aloha is warmer, more metallic. Make Up For Ever #15 is similar in color but not in finish. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo is cooler-toned and less sparkly. Inglot #402 is similar but does not have glitter/sparkle.

Applied dry, the payoff was semi-sheer, but it intensified to mostly opaque color when applied with a damp brush. When using a damp brush, it does help to minimize fall out during application (not entirely but certainly less than if applied dry). Without an adhesive or tacky base, Diamond Dog is prone to fall out during wear. The sparkle of the eyeshadow is very, very fine, so it’s not as noticeable as the micro-glitter fall out from Urban Decay’s powder eyeshadows. The effect of the eyeshadow is very smooth, reflective, sparkling, and shimmering–more like glimmering water. I didn’t have any trouble with the underlying color creasing or fading when I wore it. For a comparison to their Stardust eyeshadows, please read this review.

B-
Diamond Dog is best applied with a damp brush (and over an adhesive or tacky base, if you have one) in order to achieve the best color payoff, smoothness, and least amount of fall out.
