Urban Decay Graffiti Eyeshadow

Going Green with Urban Decay, Part 2

Urban Decay Graffiti Deluxe Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a vibrant shade of grass green. I originally tried it out back in March, in this St. Patrick’s Day Look. It’s a very edgy green–not quite grass, not dark–bright enough to get noticed, but it’s not neon either. The texture of Urban Decay’s Deluxe Eyeshadows is amazing–smooth, buttery, intensely pigmented. It’s rich, luxe, and so, so smooth.

Deluxe Eyeshadows are also available in these shades: Fishnet (iridescent purple), Freakshow (deep purple with red sheen), Frigid (deep purple with blue sheen), Honey (glistening gold), Peace (shimmering turquoise), Ransom (vibrant iridescent purple), Ruthless (pale sandy taupe shimmer), Scratch (shimmering silver pink), Shag (tan shimmer), Zero (smoking black), and Underground (taupe brown shimmer).

The packaging is cute and funky, though not the most functional. The price, however, is worth noting, because you get 0.09 oz. of product, which makes this one of the most affordable high-end eyeshadows to purchase!

    Sinds I started to watch your site i have a great love for Urban Decay and
    most for the 24/7 slide

  2. As much as I’d love to own shadows like this, there’s no way I’ll pay $18 for one shadow. Urban Decay is terribly overpriced.

    • You get almost twice as much as most other brands — the eyeshadow is cheaper than MAC by the ounce.

      • Weight isn’t a concern of me, its the overall price itself sadly. I don’t have the money to be concerned how much I get for my buck but instead how many products my buck can get me.

          You can buy the Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow palette where you get 9 Urban decay deluxe eyeshadows (0.03 oz each) for 38 US$. It has also a mini primer potion. I bought this set and the colors are amazing. I love Peace,Scratch and Ransom the most among the shades in this shadow box.

  3. Lili

    I love this shade but seriously, I would never buy it individually as the deluxe palette has a better value!

    • Rachel

      I loovve my deluxe palette! I would definitely suggest buying this over the individuals which come in it. I did pick up the “sting” single from all cosmetics wholesale though, I think for $9.99.

      • Lili

        I also love it, for only $38. It has both neutral and fun colors and they all have great pigmentation and texture.

  4. Color of the eye shadow looks classic. But I have dark skin complexion. I don’t think it will be suitable for dark skin people.

  5. TT

    Sephora has exclusively released I think it’s four or five shades, that are so pigmented, it makes MAC look like dollar store cosmetics. When you have a chance, check out the colors, but like I mentioned before, you can only get them at your local Sephora!! :o)

    • AnGeLwInGz

      Are these only available in select stores? They’re not on the website.

      • AnGeLwInGz

        Never mind I thought you meant the Deluxe shadow. Thanks for the tip I may buy them all!

  6. TT

    I forgot to mention that these were exclusive Urban Decay colors purchased only through Sephora, enjoy!

  7. Frances

    I’m really loving Urban Decay eye shadows, so pigmented and velvety soft.

  8. alex

    Thanks for doing this. I saw this color and passed because I thought it looked like MAC’s Humid but its sooo different swatched…might have to check it out now!!!

  9. Sixx

    I find the texture of these to be very light & fluffy…hard to explain..but definitely not my favorite texture to work with.

  10. Annika

    WoW! Graffiti looks amazing :-)

  11. Nadine

    How does this one compare to MAC one-off????

  12. This color is amazing! I use the 24/7 Graffiti pencil as a base to make this color pop. I do have a problem with the top plastic popping off when I try to open it sometimes.

  13. Alexis

    I still want to buy Fishnet. I think this green may be a bit much for my dark skintone.

  14. Meghann

    I’ve been looking for a true green. I definitely have to swatch it to see if this is the one. But most my greens are either leaning towards yellow or blue.

  15. Jennifer

    This color is in the Urban Decay Deluxe palette, its so pretty and vibrant, I have yet to use it but I’m thinking I will before the week is over with :)

  16. Daphnee

    Chronic looks like Newly Minted

  17. Amelia

    I love the color, it’s very pretty to look at, but unfortunately green is the most unflaterring color on me :/

  18. AnGeLwInGz

    I wear Graffiti shadow and liner WAAAAY too much. There’s no better green IMO.

  19. Sarah

    Is it just me, or does One-Off from the Starflash collection seem so similar to this? (I have both, btw)

  20. not my color, but I do love UD Deluxe Shadows
