Urban Decay Snare Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Snare Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “smoky olive green shimmer.” It’s a smoky olive green with subtle brown undertones and a gray cast. It has a shimmery, frosted finish. MAC Enviable is lighter. Giorgio Armani #25 has a deeper base. bareMinerals Speaker Box is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever #84 is less frosted.
It’s a new (and permanent!) shade that launches February 1st at Urban Decay as well as in Sephora in JCP stores. The pigmentation level was nice, being very true-to-pan, and the resulting finish was shimmering and sparkling without resulting in fall out. The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled; it had a very dense, buttery feel that you’d expect from Urban Decay’s formula. I found it looked greener as I blended out the color on the lid, so depending on how you apply it, the color can look smokier and grayer or warmer and greener. Snare wore well for a full nine hours (no primer), as I didn’t see any signs of fading or creasing.
