This eyeliner lets you draw waterproof liquid lines so sharp they could cut glass. Urban Decay’s slender brush lays down long-lasting matte, slick, and shimmery shades sure to satisfy your color lust. Available in a veritable rainbow of long-lasting, highly-pigmented color options, these shades can be applied in thick or thin strokes with an ultra-fine brush tip that’s short and easy enough to control. The slim pens are conveniently color-matched to each shade.

Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color ($19.00) (Sephora Exclusive)

This formula delivers all the opaque, saturated, high-impact color of your favorite lipstick and an arresting high-gloss finish in one chubby pencil. And with a dynamic bright to deep shade range in creamy and sparkly textures, the runway-ready possibilities are endless. Even the glittery hues in this collection of high-gloss lip pencils feel smooth on your lips (and leave not a trace of sparkle grit). This conveniently portable pencil’s high-gloss shine can be blotted for a more stain-like effect, but no matter how you wear it, the color lasts. Free of mineral oil and paraffin, this formula contains plant-derived ingredients that nourish lips. Because the barrels and boxes are color-matched to each shade, locating the color you want is easy, even in the deep, dark depths of an oversize tote.

  • Adrenaline Bright fuchsia sparkle
  • Big Bang Bright pink with sparkle
  • Crush Hot pink
  • Fbomb Bright red cream
  • Punch Drunk Bright orange cream

The Revolution High-Performance Lash Curler ($20.00)

This innovative “lash emancipator” abolishes one-size-fits-all curling. The open cage– without the bars on either side of the curler– lets you curl your lashes all at once or in sections without crimping, and without pinching your skin. Gone are the days of contending with a standardized cage that was clearly designed with someone else’s eyes in mind.

Lush Lash Mascara ($20.00)

This nourishing, thickening, and lengthening mascara is infused with peptides and moisturizing panthenol that allows your lashes to grow for a longer period of time. Its formula builds and beautifies so your lashes will grow longer and fuller over time. Used in conjunction with Urban Decay’s Lush Lash System (Growth Accelerating Serum and Conditioning Mask), it provides additional lash nourishment. This very enduring formula is not technically waterproof, but there was zero smudging or running after road-testing it in a hot yoga class. The outer component features a lush swirl motif, and the large hourglass-shaped brush provides generous mascara distribution. It’s the ideal mascara for anyone who suffers from brittle, fragile lashes, as well as those with great lashes who want to build and strengthen them even more.

UrbanBrow Precision-Tip Brow Tint ($20.00)

Toss your brow pencils and avoid harsh-looking, easily-smudged lines. Urban Decay’s brow tint fills in sparse areas and defines your overall brow shape with soft, natural-looking results! Color flows through the pen into their ultra-fine tip brush that allows for light, feathery strokes. The result is a soft, stain-like finish that won’t smudge. Available in Blonde and Brunette.

Urban Decay Peace Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Peace Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow Peace ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) describes this as a “shimmering turquoise,” though I’d describe it as a brightened sky blue on me. It’s the color of turquoise beads, which are rather blue, so depending on your interpretation of turquoise, this may be more or less what you expect. With a Deluxe Eyeshadow finish, it’s ultra smooth, almost creamy (but it is a powder), and highly pigmented.

It’s like a shimmery version of Urban Decay Electric, as well as a slightly darker Painkiller. Inglot #415 has a golden sheen, which gives it less of a true blue look. Make Up For Ever #83 is a darker blue.

The downside to this product was actually the packaging–the clear, plastic lid that covers the top of the eyeshadow compact keeps popping off.

A+
Other than the packaging issue, this is a fantastic eyeshadow (which, ultimately, is what counts) -- great texture, color payoff, and blendable. It's a fun color to work with, because it's a lighter blue than most brands put out.

Urban Decay Eldorado Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Eldorado Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Eldorado Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Eldorado Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright gold with gold sparkles.” It’s a yellow gold with a lightness that seems to tone down some of the brightness. It has gold micro-glitter strewn through the golden base color, which does have a tendency to cause fall out when used without a really tacky base. I had trouble getting an opaque, even layer of product, though–the pigmentation is lacking, and the texture is too dry, which seems to be the cause of uneven application.  On the lid, you really have to pack it on just to get decent color payoff.

It’s a disappointment, because El Dorado 24/7 Liner is a gorgeous true yellow gold, but this is a very faded variation of that. Inglot #403 is a much more intense version of what this looks like in the pan, while Make Up For Ever #10 is a little darker. I find that MAC Goldmine is significantly darker and almost looks orange.

This is a real miss -- it's not very pigmented, has glittery fallout, and applies unevenly.

Urban Decay Shag Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Shag Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Shag Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Shag Deluxe Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “tan shimmer.” It’s a softened, coppery bronze with a frosted, metallic sheen. The texture is smooth, almost buttery, and the color payoff is amazing–rich, true-to-pan color in a single pass. It’s a warmer color, which means it may turn a little orange on cooler skin tones. It’s darker and more copper than Urban Decay Blaze. Milani’s Fusion is similar but not quite as intense.

I do find the packaging of Urban Decay’s Deluxe Eyeshadows to be a little bulky, and I have four or five where the clear plastic lid falls off easily (but the actual part of the lid that protects the eyeshadow and is hinged to the bottom has always been intact).  On the other hand, you get nearly double the amount of eyeshadow most brands give–even the standard Urban Decay Eyeshadows are only 0.05 oz. as compared to the Deluxe Eyeshadows at 0.09 oz.

Urban Decay Shag Deluxe Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches

A+
Urban Decay's Deluxe Eyeshadows really combine texture with color payoff (more often than not, at least), and Shag is easy to work with because of the soft, smooth powder and high pigmentation. The packaging is the only misstep, but it's likely not a deal-breaker for most.
