Urban Decay Zodiac Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Zodiac Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “smoky black with blue-green shift and blue-green 3-D sparkle.” It’s a rich, darkened forest green with green and green-teal sparkle and shimmer over a blackened-brown base. L’Oreal Golden Emerald is lighter, warmer. MAC Smutty Green is darker, less sparkly. Inglot #414 is more teal.
Of the six shades I’ve swatched, Zodiac is the most nuanced as it has more color shift (almost like a duochrome). Applied dry, it had decent color payoff, but it is definitely more intense when applied with a damp brush–then the blackened base darkens and the finish turns smoother, more metallic, and the green becomes more pronounced. The texture feels almost wet, but it’s very smooth, fine, and thin. It applies well to the lid, and it is easy to blend out, but there is fall out during application and later on while it is worn. The eyeshadow lasted without fading or creasing over eight hours on the lid. For a comparison to Stardusts, read this post.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow
Like all our Eyeshadows, each Moondust shade comes in our new compact with the cool pop-out feature. Pop these shadows out of their compacts and into one of our customizable Build Your Own Palettes to create the ultimate travel-friendly collection. To make Moondust Eyeshadows easier to spot in your makeup bag or palette, the compacts are pale silver (instead of gunmetal like our iconic shadows).
Super-secret new technology at our lab gives Moondust an amazing effect not found in traditional pressed-powder shadows. It feels like a cream but goes on like a powder to create a smooth, brilliantly reflective look. The result? Sexy, twinkling sparkle with a ton of depth and movement. (And a LOT of questions about what you’re wearing!) The colors are like nothing else out there. Our staff is already going nuts over Zodiac, an amazing smoky black with a blue-green shift and a sparkly 3-D effect.
Urban Decay launches Moondust Eyeshadow, a dazzling innovation in eyeshadow with a superrefined and incredibly sophisticated feel. Forget EVERYTHING you know about glitter eyeshadow. Moondust is like NO OTHER shadow. There’s not a speck of chunky “teen glitter” to be found in these babies. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush 3-D metallics—for an effect that’s out of this world. And while some traditional sparkly shadows tend to look cheap, Moondust has a really luxe, upscale vibe and a gorgeous, diamond-like effect.
Moondust Eyeshadow is infused with a delicate, microfine sparkle and gorgeous 3-D pearls—for a glistening, iridescent effect and amazing flashes of multidimensional sparkle. We recommend applying Moondust with your fingers. For extra intense color payout, try it wet.
