Urban Decay Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “medium fawn.” It’s a medium-dark gray-tinted brown; it’s rather taupe to me, though not as cool-toned as some taupes can be. The finish has a frosted appearance with a hint of metallic sheen. MAC Caviar Dreams has a similar color but different finish. Benefit Dandy Brandy is much more of a red-toned brown than taupe. Tarina Tarantino Delightful has a warmer base. MAC Magical Mist is a bit lighter. Bare Escentuals A-Ha has a redder undertone. MAC Aloha has a redder undertone and a more metallic finish.

Urban Decay Shag Deluxe Eyeshadow

I do find the packaging of Urban Decay’s Deluxe Eyeshadows to be a little bulky, and I have four or five where the clear plastic lid falls off easily (but the actual part of the lid that protects the eyeshadow and is hinged to the bottom has always been intact).  On the other hand, you get nearly double the amount of eyeshadow most brands give–even the standard Urban Decay Eyeshadows are only 0.05 oz. as compared to the Deluxe Eyeshadows at 0.09 oz.
