Urban Decay Zodiac Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Zodiac Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “smoky black with blue-green shift and blue-green 3-D sparkle.” It’s a rich, darkened forest green with green and green-teal sparkle and shimmer over a blackened-brown base. L’Oreal Golden Emerald is lighter, warmer. MAC Smutty Green is darker, less sparkly. Inglot #414 is more teal.

Of the six shades I’ve swatched, Zodiac is the most nuanced as it has more color shift (almost like a duochrome). Applied dry, it had decent color payoff, but it is definitely more intense when applied with a damp brush–then the blackened base darkens and the finish turns smoother, more metallic, and the green becomes more pronounced. The texture feels almost wet, but it’s very smooth, fine, and thin. It applies well to the lid, and it is easy to blend out, but there is fall out during application and later on while it is worn. The eyeshadow lasted without fading or creasing over eight hours on the lid. For a comparison to Stardusts, read this post.
