Urban Decay Bender Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Bender Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “forest green metallic with gold micro-glitter.” It’s a darkened, forest green with subtle yellow-olive undertones and cool-toned, forest green and khaki shimmer. It can also be found in the (somewhat) recently released Book of Shadows Vol. 4. Sugarpill Junebug is more metallic. L’Oreal Golden Emerald is warmer, more frosted. OCC Poison is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Humid is warmer. Make Up For Ever #310 is more frosted. Inglot #418 is greener, lighter.
Bender is incredibly rich in color–it has amazing color payoff. The texture is soft, smooth, and buttery, which helps it yield so much pigment in a single swipe, but it also helps with making this a cinch to blend. It just applies so well, blends easily, and goes on with true-to-pan color. Bender has all the characteristics that made Urban Decay’s eyeshadows famous. When I wore it, the shade lasted nine hours without creasing or fading.
