Urban Decay Sidecar Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Sidecar Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Sidecar Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “beige sparkle.” It’s a medium caramel brown with warm undertones and a champagne-bronze sheen. Milani Caramel Brown is darker, more bronze. MAC Love Connection is also browner. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar is lighter, less caramel. Urban Decay Blaze is less brown, slightly more orange.

You can find Sidecar in the original Naked Palette. Though it has a sparkle finish, it doesn’t seem to have micro-gltiter, and the sparkle is fine and sparse–I didn’t have problems with it in the Naked Palette, and I didn’t have problems when I tried this shade (which is in the newer formulation). I didn’t see fall out during application or later on during wear. The color itself is fully pigmented, and it applies evenly and smoothly. It has a dense, buttery texture that is soft and easily blended on the skin. I wore it and had it last for full eight hours without fading or creasing, and there was some very light fading along the outer edge after nine hours.

Urban Decay Sidecar Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches

Sidecar is a very wearable, warm-toned brown that's not too dark, not too light. I didn't have any problems with fall out, even though it has a sparklier finish.

Urban Decay Naked 1 vs. Naked 2 Palette Dupes & Comparison Swatches

  • Foxy doesn’t have any comparable shades in Naked 1.
  • Half Baked is a repeat from Naked 1, so yes, there is a dupe–in fact, it’s 100% the same!
  • Booty Call is a peachier version of Virgin (Naked 1), but they’re really, really close. It’s just slightly warmer.
  • Chopper is more orange than Sidecar (Naked 1); I wouldn’t say they’re dupes, but they’re not totally different.
  • Tease doesn’t have any dupes, because it’s matte, so it doesn’t really appear the same as contenders like Sin and Toasted (both from Naked 1).
  • Snakebite is not as golden as Smog (Naked 1), but it’s nowhere near as dark as Darkhorse (Naked 1); however, if you mix both Smog and Darkhorse together, you get something rather similar.
  • Suspect is just a little more beige compared to Sidecar (Naked 1).
  • Pistol doesn’t have any comparable shades in Naked 1.
  • Verve doesn’t have any comparable shades in Naked 1.
  • YDK looks pretty similar to both Sidecar and Toasted (both from Naked 1), and Sidecar is closer.
  • Busted is very, very similar to Hustle (Naked 1); at best, it might be a little less red-toned. It’s not like Darkhorse (Naked 1), though.
  • Blackout doesn’t have any comparable shades in Naked 1.
