Urban Decay Vape, Stellar, Crux, Skywalk Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light pewter with subtle, cooler undertones and a warmer, pink glitter and shift. The texture was slightly glittery but smooth overall, and it was blendable on the skin without resulting in a lot of fallout. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, which had minimal fall out over time. Damp application yielded opaque coverage that wore well for eight hours and had almost no fallout. bareMinerals Starstruck (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Antares (P, $29.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Indulge (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #2 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC She Sparkles (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Stila Rose Pewter (LE, $18.00) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Ice (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). Sephora Lunar Eclipse (98) (P, $12.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Stellar Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark coppery-brown with strong, warm undertones and tons of chunky gold and molten gold glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage with a looser, glittery texture when used dry, which resulted in some fall out while worn. When I tried it damp, the color intensified to mostly opaque coverage and had a smoother appearance on the lid, while the wear time was better with only a bit of noticeable fallout. MAC I Like 2 Watch (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Gilded Thrill (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sphinx (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Gold Nugget (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Flipper (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Crux Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark bluish-teal with a stronger blue base paired with lighter green, greenish-teal, and gold glitter. This shade was harder to work with dry, as the glitter really separated away from the base and had a tendency to look like dirt sitting on top. When applied damp, the base color intensified and the glitter became more cohesive with the color, which gave it a smoother, more blended appearance. I had a lot of fall out when I used this shade dry, but I had very little when I used it damp (tested over an eight-hour period). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #3 (P) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Krinkle (DC, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Across the Universe (100) (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Makeup Geek Chameleon (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Revlon Neptune Star (LE, $4.99) is darker (80% similar). Natasha Denona Cloudy Blue (17M) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Skywalk Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium sky blue with cool undertones and lighter silver glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage that lasted for eight hours with minor fall out when applied dry. It had mostly opaque coverage that wore well for eight hours with almost no fall out when applied damp. The texture was fairly smooth, lightly blendable, and had a visible color base on the lid. YSL Wet Blue (10) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Ocean Light (122) (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is specifically designed to be over-the-top sparkly with “minimal fallout” and sheerer coverage dry, more “intense color payout” when applied wet. I like using flat, synthetic brushes (or fingertips, as the brand suggests) that have been slightly dampened by a spritz of just water. If you want extra-long hold, I would still recommend a glitter adhesive, but I get pretty good wear with little fall out without any primers or adhesive, as the formula has a smoother, almost wet consistency. They work better combined with other eyeshadows than using several at once, and they tend to look more impressive in person than in still photos. Some shades are better than others; the ones with stronger base colors even when applied dry tend to have the least fallout over time.

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner (Part 2)

Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner
Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner

Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a water-resistant, long-wearing, “intensely pigmented” liquid liner with an ultra-precise (thin) applicator. There are cream shades and metallic shades; the cream ones have a shiny finish (so none dry matte), while the metallic ones have a more pearly sheen. They require 20-30 seconds worth of shaking, or else you’ll end up with a more watery, sheerer consistency that is hard to work with. If shaken for long enough, everything mixes and most shades are semi-opaque to opaque and thin without feeling watered down, but it is a very wet, thin formula that takes 15-30 seconds to dry down (depends on the shade–metallics dried faster for me, on the whole). Once it dries down, it does seem to shrink slightly and I can feel it cling to my skin a bit. The applicator is thin and flexible enough to maneuver around the curve of the lid. Something that was somewhat frustrating is that the formula is so thin and wet that I do get some splattering when I open shades as well as when I apply (like a dot or two randomly on face).

These remove pretty easily with just water and a light rub, but they don’t come off just rubbing with a dry fingertip at all, so removing those spots requires real makeup remover or a dampened brush/cotton swab. During removal, the eyeliner flakes off in small chunks.. If I just sprayed the eyeliner with water and lightly dab or blot (or even just let the water evaporate), they didn’t smudge, fade, or run. I didn’t have any issues with the wear of them–they all went for a full 10-hours before I removed.

Urban Decay Bump 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright white with a satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which applied fairly fluidly and didn’t skip. In order to get truly opaque coverage, a second layer is needed, but be sure to wait until the first layer dries down. It lasted for ten hours on me. Make Up For Ever M16 Matte White (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Fascinating (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (DC, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Stila Alpine (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Santa Monica Blvd. (P, $24.00) is brighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC Polar Ice (P, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Cuff 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage, even after I spent a good bit of time shaking up the tube; on the best application, I was able to get semi-opaque coverage, but three of the four times I tried swatching for better coverage, it was just semi-sheer. If you want to layer this for true opacity, just make sure to let the first layer dry. MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Cuff (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Diamonds are Forever (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Silverstroke (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Revolver 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a dark gray with silver and teal shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one pass (and I did shake it up for about 20 seconds), and it didn’t improve even after opening/closing the product over the course of a week to see if it would dry out any. The texture was thinner, somewhat runny and watery, and it was harder to control. Once on, the liner locked on for ten hours without issue. Urban Decay Moonspoon (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Little Black Bow (DC, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Starry Sky (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Uzi (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tarte Charcoal (LE) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a deep, dark black with a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a fluid, smooth consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, though it is thinner than the average eyeliner from my experience. It lasted for ten hours on me. Too Faced Black (P, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Definitely Black (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Deeper (01) (P, $55.00) is warmer (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Black (01) (P, $28.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Really Black (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Illamasqua Abyss (P, $27.50) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora Clubbing Stilettos (P, $10.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Zoeva Black to Earth (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Graphblack (P, $16.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Goldrush 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium, yellowy gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. After swatching this five times, it seemed to thicken and become more pigmented, but the first four times, it was always semi-sheer, so it may be like some mascaras where after some use, it dries out and actually is better. Chanel Vegas Gold (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC $$$ (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Brassy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Illamasqua Alchemy (P, $27.50) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Girls Night Out (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Going for Gold (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Gold (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Zoeva After the Disco (P, $7.50) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Handforged (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Space Cowboy (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Antique (04) (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Snakebite 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with gold and bronze pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage initially, which you could layer if you made sure to let the initial layer dry down and get opaque coverage. The liquid eyeliner did apply smoothly and evenly, though, and it still went for a full 10 hours without budging on me. MAC Bountiful Brown (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Smog (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Constant Copper (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Plank (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Fireball 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red-copper with iridescent pink sheen. It’s a really cool shade, but it could use more pigmentation, which is the major downside. The thinner consistency was a little watery and took longer to dry, though once it did, it wore for ten hours on me. Zoeva Opulence (P, $7.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Kush 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium green with warm, yellow undertones and gold sparkle. It had opaque coverage in a single stroke, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly and didn’t take too long to dry. This shade lasted for ten hours on me. Colour Pop Maybe (DC, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Maybe (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Freak (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). Sephora Caipirinha Dreamin' (LE, $10.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Deep End 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark blue-teal with a metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage in a single pass, which was fluid and even when applied. The texture was thin without being runny or watery. It wore well for ten hours on me. Urban Decay Vacancy (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I32 Iridescent Lagoon Green (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC New Marine (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Sweet Star (LE, $29.00) is more muted (90% similar). Makeup Geek Ocean (P, $9.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy (P, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Chaos 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark cobalt blue with cool undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation in one pass, once really shaken up, which didn’t skip or go on unevenly, but the consistency is still on the thinner, wetter side and had this one splatter every time I opened and used it (five times). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Lancome Cote d'Azur (P, $23.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Sephora Sea If I Care (P, $14.00) is less glossy (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Push 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a dark, navy blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It’s not as metallic as a lot of the other shades, but it seems to have a bit of shimmer. This shade was quite watery, even when shaken up and open/closed multiple times, which resulted in sheerer coverage. The color still wore for ten hours. NARS Rue Saint-Honore (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Waveline (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Cool Jazz (P, $16.00) is less glossy (90% similar). L'Oreal Cobalt Blue (250) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Push (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar).

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.16 oz.) consists of eight, new shades of the Moondust Eyeshadow formula housed in a “glittery” plastic compact. It looks like silvery glitter, but it doesn’t feel like loose glitter (so you won’t get a bunch of glitter shedding over time but can appreciate the look of it!). The Moondust formula is specifically designed to be over-the-top sparkly with “minimal fallout” and sheerer coverage dry, more “intense color payout” when applied wet. I like using flat, synthetic brushes (or fingertips, as the brand suggests) that have been slightly dampened by a spritz of just water. If you want extra-long hold, I would still recommend a glitter adhesive, but I get pretty good wear with little fall out without any primers or adhesive, as the formula has a smoother, almost wet consistency. They work better combined with other eyeshadows than using several at once, and they tend to look more impressive in person than in still photos.

Specter is a light pink with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and mostly opaque coverage applied damp. The texture was soft, lightly loose in the pan, and blended out with only a little bit of fall out when applied dry but had no fall out when patted on with a damp brush.
MAC Pastelluxe #3 (P) is darker (95% similar). YSL Paris #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cool (Winter 2016) Eyeshadow #1 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Maybelline Rose Riot (140) (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Claretluxe #1 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Just Fur Fun (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Seductive Rose #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Diamond Pink (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Dare to Bare (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Earthshine (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Noble Descent (LE, $19.50) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Dust (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Chanel Impulsion (93) (LE, $32.00) is darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 17 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Smashbox Charmed (LE) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Halo (P, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay SWF (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Rose Light (LE, $32.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Element is a medium-dark, coppered red with warm undertones and chunky glitter and light pink sparkle. It had a drier, looser texture in the pan, which resulted in more “powdery” application (glittery, really). This one was better applied with a damp brush and patted on, which I found to minimize the looseness, as dry application sheered out easily and resulted in some fall out. It lasted for eight hours both wet and dry, but the wet application had almost no fall out while the dry application had a little (nothing major, though, and certainly impressive for a glittery eyeshadow).
Urban Decay Solstice (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Sonic (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala Glitter (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Zoeva Warm Notes (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Magnetic is a medium purple with warmer undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and was opaque when applied damp. The consistency was soft, blendable, but a little loose in the pan, which resulted in chunky bits getting dislodged, so I had the best luck when I applied in thinner layers with a dampened brush. The color lasted for eight hours both wet and dry, though dry had a little fall out (which is as described). Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Butterfly Party (LE, $32.50) is darker (85% similar). MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lightyear is a bright, medium green with warm, yellowy undertones and a glittery finish. It had medium coverage applied dry and was opaque when applied damp. The consistency was smoother and easier to work with than the other three shades as it sat better on the skin and wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan. I had a little fall out after eight hours when I applied it dry, but I had almost no noticeable fall out when I applied it damp. Colour Pop Cusp (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Galaxy is a deep gray with a hint of teal shimmer/sparkle. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage applied dry, which lasted for eight hours with slight fall out over time.
