Urban Decay Extragalactic Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, plummy burgundy with warm, reddish undertones and flecks of pink, copper, and plum sparkle. The Moondust formula is supposed to have “minimal fallout” that “feels like a cream, but goes on like a powder.” They can be used wet for “extra intense color payout.” The eyeshadow had mostly opaque dry and totally opaque coverage applied damp, but the big difference was in how much smoother the powder applied with a damp brush. It had a fairly soft texture, though there was quite a bit of sparkle to it, so I could feel that by touch (not rough… just sparkly). It applied decently to bare skin but is a shade I’d apply over a glitter adhesive or with a damp brush to minimize fallout and improve the overall longevity of the product (six and a half hours dry, eight hours damp with some fallout either way).

Urban Decay Twitch Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a slightly bright, medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and very, very fine pearl. I wouldn’t describe the finish as metallic or even pearly, but there was a subtle sheen. The consistency was thinner, not really watery but could have more substance to it, and it applied fairly evenly. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but a second layer would be needed for full coverage. This shade did seem to pull into my lip lines and appear “cracked” as I smiled. It lasted for five hours before flaking off and fading strongly from the center of the mouth, though it was non-drying.

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them. They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Urban Decay Relish Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was very blendable and easy to work with. It seemed a touch thinner than some of Urban Decay’s best matte eyeshadows, but it did not sheer out too easily, so it did not cause any problems for me. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Urban Decay 1985 Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark magenta purple with pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a heavier hand or two layers patted on (not swept). The texture was firmer in the pan and a bit drier overall, though I had no issues blending and diffusing the shade on the lid. On me, the color lasted for just over eight hours before fading noticeably.

Urban Decay Crank Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage–not even remotely close to opaque!–in a single layer. This one needed three layers to yield full coverage, and then it took an obscene (15 minutes) time to dry down. One layer took closer to two minutes to dry down, and it did dry down fully. The texture was thinner and on the watery side, which resulted in the sheerer coverage along with poorer, uneven application. The color lasted for five hours before there was more noticeable fading, and the formula felt non-drying.
