Urban Decay Omen Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Omen Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic bright purple with blue shift.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based violet purple with hints of fuchsia in its base. The finish has a high frost content and comes off a bit metallic. Tarte Touchdown in Londontown is a darker purple. MAC Stars ‘n Rockets is much more fuchsia. Inglot #441 is darker, purpler. It’s not similar to either Urban Decay Ecstasy (cooler-toned, no pink) or Fishnet (very fuchsia/pink, like MAC Stars ‘n Rockets).
Like Deep End, Omen was released in the 15th Anniversary Palette. When I first posted about the shades Urban Decay was adding to their permanent range, readers really seemed quite happy about Omen coming back, so I was eager to play around with it again. I’m happy to report that it has a soft, buttery texture that applies smoothly and evenly. The color payoff is good, and the pink base comes out more as you swatch and blend it out. When I tested this on the lid, it wore well for eight hours without fading or creasing, and after nine hours there was a hint of fading along the outer edge.
Since a lot of you have been wearing Omen a lot, what are some of your favorite looks using it?
