Urban Decay Flash, Psychedelic Sister, Woodstock Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Flash Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Flash Eyeshadow

A couple of weeks ago, I was going through our Urban Decay Eyeshadow gallery, and I noticed we were missing a few shades from the permanent range–which was something that needed to be rectified!

Urban Decay Flash Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright iridescent purple shimmer.” It’s a medium, cool-toned purple with a medium, frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and buttery. It wore well for eight hours before starting to fade. Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #5 (LE) is darker. Fyrinnae Snowboarding (P, $6.80) is more iridescent. Kat Von D Babe (LE) is warmer. theBalm A2 (LE, $16.00) is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Betrayal (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Trance (LE) is a cream product. Inglot #441 (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches

Urban Decay Psychedelic Sister Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep amethyst shimmer.” It’s a medium, plummy purple with subtle warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff–could have been more intense–but the texture was soft, smooth, and easy to blend. The color wore well for just over eight hours. Dior Lilas Mitzah (176) (P, $29.00) is darker. Urban Decay Vice (LE, $18.00) is darker, less warm-toned. Sugarpill Hysteric (P, $12.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “saturated deep pink shimmer.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a soft, frosted finish. This shade lasted for nine hours before showing signs of fading. Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $12.00) is slightly brighter. Too Faced Bright Eyes (LE, $16.00) is a smidgen darker. Too Faced Totally Fetch (LE, $16.00) is a touch brighter. Fyrinnae Superstar (P, $6.80) is brighter, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Noise (LE, $18.00) is more muted. MAC Tease with Ease (DC, $21.00) is darker, warmer, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

5 Beautiful Blue Eyeshadows for Spring

Don’t be afraid of rocking blue eyeshadow! There are so many variations on blue, whether they lean green or purple, bright or muted, light or dark that can be worn. Here are five of my picks for spring:

  1. Sugarpill Mochi — a cool-toned, aqua blue with a matte finish
  2. Urban Decay Peace — brightened, vibrant medium blue
  3. Inglot #415 — a gold-shimmered, medium blue with a frost finish
  4. Illamasqua Sadist — a deep, dark, purple-blue with a matte finish
  5. L’Oreal Timeless Blue Spark — a medium, muted blue with a metallic finish

What colors do you pair with blue eyeshadow?

Urban Decay X/Half Baked Eyeshadow Duo

Urban Decay X/Half Baked Eyeshadow Duo
Urban Decay X/Half Baked Eyeshadow Duo

Urban Decay X/Half Baked Eyeshadow Duo ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is split down the middle and features two shades from the brand’s permanent range. Like the other duo, the quality of this one is on par with the quality of the individual eyeshadows. If you love both shades and don’t think you’ll use up individual pans, this might be a good way to spend a little less. I tried blending the two shades together, and it was a very warm-toned, peach shade with hints of pink. Both wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

X Eyeshadow is described as a “peach shimmer with gold shift.” It’s a warm-toned, pinky-peach with gold shimmer. This is a shade that turns more and more golden as it is blended and worked into the skin, because initially, it looks rather pink. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft and buttery. Dior Golden Flower #1 (LE) is warmer. Laura Mercier Guava (P, $22.00) is more matte, less shimmery. MAC Artistic License (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #1 (LE, $15.00) is less frosted. See comparison swatches.

Half Baked Eyeshadow is described as a “golden bronze shimmer.” It’s a brightened, medium coppery orange with a frosted, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented, and the texture was so soft and smooth that it almost felt like a cream eyeshadow. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #3 (P) is darker, less metallic. Tarina Tarantino Amber (P) is darker, less metallic. MAC A Glimmer of Gold #3 (P, $21.00) is similar. MAC Exquisite Ego #2 (LE, $21.00) is also similar. Guerlain Crazy Paris #1 (LE) is more orange. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #10 (P, $9.99) is similar. MAC Creative Copper (P, $15.00) is a touch darker. LORAC Gold (P) is darker. theBalm Manic Maribel (LE, $16.00) is more muted. bareMinerals Bragging Rights (LE) is slightly more orange. bareMinerals Louder (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Sin/Mushroom Eyeshadow Duo

Urban Decay Sin/Mushroom Eyeshadow Duo
Urban Decay Sin/Mushroom Eyeshadow Duo

Urban Decay Sin/Mushroom Eyeshadow Duo ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is split down the middle and features two shades from the brand’s permanent range. Many will be familiar with both shades, so this review is more to confirm that the quality of the individual eyeshadows is still present in the duo form. Having the two in the same pan does make mixing the two easier, if that’s something that appeals to you, and the color the two create is a warm-toned, medium taupe. I get about eight hours of wear before I see slight fading with both shades.

Sin Eyeshadow is described as a “champagne shimmer.” It’s a warm, champagne beige with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and smooth. Too Faced Marzipan (P, $16.00) Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty In the Pink #2 (LE) is lighter. theBalm Stubborn (P, $16.00) is slightly pinker, less frosted. theBalm Third Eye Blinded (P, $16.00) is pinker, less frosted. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle (LE, $30.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Mushroom Eyeshadow is described as a “warm gray shimmer.” It’s a dark taupe with almost neutral undertones (runs warm against my skin tone, most of the time) with a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was very soft but a little powdery. bareMinerals Pewter (LE, $14.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Nameless (LE, $18.00) is browner. Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $18.00) is warmer, lighter, more glittery. Dior Aventure (081) (P, $30.00) is a cream product. Urban Decay Armor (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Satin Taupe (P, $15.00) is browner. Giorgio Armani #4 (P, $33.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

10 Gorgeous Red Lipsticks & Lipglosses for Valentine’s Day

Some say a good red lip color is hard to find, but I feel like I fall in love with a new red lip color at least once a month! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here are ten of my favorite (permanently available!) red lipsticks and lipglosses… What’s your favorite?

Urban Decay Flushed Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color

Urban Decay Flushed Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color
Urban Decay Flushed Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color

Urban Decay Flushed Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “creamy mauve-pink.” It’s a medium, slightly muted, pink with a hint of neutral-to-cool tones (the mauve playing with the pink, I expect) and a glossy shine. MAC Flamingo (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. NYX Blush ($P, $4.00) is a bit lighter, less glossy, warmer. Tom Ford Indian Rose (P, $49.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Chanel Liaison (P, $34.00) is warmer, brighter. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is darker. Urban Decay Naked (P, $22.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Rendez-vous (87) (P, $34.00) is cooler-toned. Tarte Pink Peony (P, $16.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

This is a new and exclusive shade to Urban Decay’s website. The Super Saturated formula is supposed to be like a “rich and creamy lipstick” with a “high-gloss shine.” It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the color applied fairly evenly overall. The formula was lightly tacky, moderately hydrating, and comfortable to wear for the four and a half hours it lasted.
