Urban Decay Mary Jane Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Mary Jane Eyeshadow

Cool Down with Mary Jane!

Urban Decay Mary Jane Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a steely blue with a frost finish. It’s a pale, icy blue with a silver sheen–perfect for the cooler season and for brightening up eyes. Mary Jane has a very soft, smooth texture with rich pigmentation. Easily one of my favorite Urban Decay eyeshadows!  This is a stunning example of why Urban Decay’s eyeshadows are often listed as readers’ favorites–especially if you love yourself some color.

  1. I absolutely love Mary Jane, it’s a gorgeous blue!

  2. Marta M.

    love the blu-greys shades like slate but this one is too pearly for me… so “granny”!

  3. I love this, bought it the other day! 😀

  4. AnGeLwInGz

    I’ve found Mary Jane to be one of the most pigmented shadows ever made. Very nice with Adore on the outer lid and crease, Vapor under the browbone, and Deviant 24/7 liner.

  5. Rowan

    I love this one. It’s really pigmented

  6. Leila

    Looks a lot like Mac tilt

    • Trish

      My thought EXACTLY! I love MAC’s Tilt. It’s the only powder blue-gray that doesn’t turn ‘ashy’ on me. This color from UD I’d have to try on first but from looking at it, doesn’t make me want to kick my Tilt to the curb…

  7. I may have to look at this again. It was one of the first urban decay colors I bought, but I rarely use it. Not sure why.

  8. I hate all of those “cornflower” blues lol not for me…

  9. Deb

    This was the first Urban Decay eyeshadow I bought! I love it paired with Hot Pants!

  10. DarkxAbysmalxSoul

    I have MAC’s Moon’s Reflection & Tilt-I think im good & dont need another of this particular shade.I do love UD shadows though,ty for the review.

  11. Inaya

    sorry for the random question Christine; but emergency shopping list from MAC required. what blush would you recommend for a warm toned nc32? i love glowy, shimmery cheeks and which blushcremes would pop? which of the following would you recommend from ladyblush, virgin isle and posey? thanks!

  12. Michelle

    Thank you, Christine! I’ve been wanting this color for several reasons [i.e. it seems pretty, I want an Urban Decay eyeshadow, and the name- hehe], so I think I will definitely check it out now :)

  13. Ms. Pink

    I am beginning to love UD Eyeshadows better than MAC.

  14. Sarah

    This looks like a dupe for MAC Suave Intentions from the swatches.

  15. Desirae

    Beautiful color! Urban Decay eye shadows are my favorite-such amazing pigmentation.

  16. Sarah

    I would’ve expected a green color with a name like this.
    I’ve heard mary jane relating to blue but I can’t remember from where..

  17. BethM

    Such a pretty blue, but shades like this turn a weird muddy gray on me. I stick with Strip, which is a bit more silver, but it stays the right color on me.

    • Chandra

      I think this is one UD’s best colors. I am surprised it does not get more attention. I don’t think it looks like tilt at all. Its way more silver. It’s like silver but with a blue tone to it so it looks good paired with dark blues like deep truth. But not the kind of tacky blue that I think tilt and moons reflection looks like.

  18. Dia

    Woo, blast from the past! I may have to bust this out now that I’m feeling inspired by it again. 😀

  19. Inaya

    thanks christine :D! I’m going to use you as an inspiration for my birthday look. YOU ARE AMAZING!
