Nocturnal

Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with a dual-ended eye brush. The shades include “eight must-haves” from the permanent line along with “four exclusives from past sets.” I liked the palette overall; it was more consistent with the brand’s permanent range with respect to quality, though shades like Fireball (not as pigmented as the permanent version), Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (glitter fallout), and Heroine (sheer) could be better. The eyeshadows were, overall, pigmented, long-wearing (seven to eight hours), and blendable. It wasn’t hard to use them together, and I didn’t feel like it was a struggle to apply and blend them out.

If you’ve picked up any Urban Decay palettes in the last couple of years, this palette might be totally redundant. I think that this palette is most suitable for someone looking to try the brand’s formula or likes this specific color combination and would like it for traveling. It’s a smaller palette, though it is thicker than you’d expect as each eyeshadow only contains 0.01 oz. (a full-sized Urban Decay eyeshadow contains 0.05 oz.). It’s still a value-packed palette compared to purchasing individual shades, but it is not quite the deal that some of the larger palettes (like Afterdark, Naked, etc.) are. The palette is exclusive to Ulta and should launch today (if it hasn’t yet!) online, and it will be available in stores on January 22nd.

Round-up: Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquids & Powders

Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne Star Lit Liquid
Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne Star Lit Liquid

I’m here with a recap of all the shades I reviewed of Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) and Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.). The liquid is fun if you like a lot of glitter–big flecks of sparkly goodness–and the powder is more suitable for a pearly sheen. I think the powder is more versatile, as it worked easily on eyes, cheeks, and lips (though they can get lost with deeper or more emollient formulas).

Fireball

Urban Decay Fireball Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, tangerine orange with iridescent pink pearl. It’s listed as a “Metallized” finish, but it seemed more like a Sheer Shimmer to me. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a lightweight, thinner texture that had noticeable slip. The color gravitated towards my lip lines, as it seemed thinner and lacked some of the gel-like quality of other shades in the range to keep the color from settling. Of course, it’s a pretty shade on as it has a subtle pink-to-peach shift in person, but it might be better layered over other shades or used with a lip primer. This shade lasted for three hours and was hydrating.
