Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows (Part 2)

Urban Decay Snow Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “neutral pearl with gold shift.” It’s a light, white gold with a cooler, whiter base color and warmer, light gold shimmer. The texture was a little powdery, but it applied without too much fuss overall–it would benefit from a primer, though. It had mostly opaque color payoff and wore well for seven and a half hours.

Dior Fire, Reflection, Fever Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadows

Dior Fire (584) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, bronzy brown with warm undertones and gold sparkle over a pearlized finish. The texture was smooth, but noticeably glittery, with a denser feel so that the glitter melded with the base color and didn’t just disappear upon application. It had good pigmentation and applied well to bare skin without losing intensity. Some of the sparkle separated from the base color as I blended, but it just seemed to move it beyond the initial area I put it but didn’t fall off the lid. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before creasing but had minimal fallout. Colour Pop Nillionaire (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows (Part 1)

Urban Decay Roadstripe Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “iridescent white with blue-violet shift.” It’s a cool white with an iridescent sheen that shifts from blue to cool purple. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, a little thinner than the average Urban Decay eyeshadow, but it didn’t sheer out too much when applied to bare skin. It is a shade that benefits greatly from a primer, though, as it becomes more buildable and sits better on the skin. Alone, the color lasted for seven hours before fading.
