Urban Decay New Eyeshadows (Reformulation) Review, Photos, Swatches

Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) has recently undergone a reformulation so that they’re “richer and smoother” with better color payoff. I compared the original and new formulas for the four shades I have, which were Last Call, Loaded, Mushroom, and Rockstar. Chase has only been released in the new formula, I believe. I could not find Shattered (and I tried to see if I reviewed it previously but only found the Loose pigment version).

  • Chase is a medium bronze with a subtle red undertone and a glitzy golden shimmer-sheen. Urban Decay Suspect is more subdued, less golden. Bare Escentuals Cognac is a bit darker, more red-toned. MAC Woodwinked is slightly more red-toned. Inglot #406 is deeper.
  • Last Call is a plummy burgundy with a hint of pink sheen. Inglot #450 is redder, less purple. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this one–everything is either too red or too purple!
  • Loaded is a blackened green-teal. It goes on very, very dark–you will lose some of the strength of the overall green/teal if you blend it out, but it doesn’t look full-on black. Bare Escentuals Max Volume is a bit lighter and greener. OCC Poison is greener. theBalm Jealous Jordana is less intense, slightly greener.
  • Mushroom is a gray-brown–it’s a very intense taupe. MAC Keep Your Cool is more muted. Chanel Illusoire is less brown.
  • Rockstar is a dark, smoky purple with subtle red undertones. MAC Indian Ink is almost like a matte version, though it is a little darker. Lancome Zip Me Up is a bit lighter. Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac is a touch lighter.
  • Shattered is a silvered blue with a green-gold duochrome. Dior Garden Pastels is slightly greener. Urban Decay Aquarius lacks the duochrome.
  • Walk of Shame is a pink-tinted light beige nude with a matte finish. I imagine it will work as a nice highlighter on lighter, cooler complexions. When I tried to use this, it looked a little chalky. It reminded me of a matte version of MAC Phloof!.

Consistently, all four reformulated versions were better than the original versions, but the difference is minor. They’re better, but not so much better (because they were already rather good) that I’d rush out to replace them. Primarily, the difference is a softer texture that has a little more give, so it almost feels creamy to the touch. The softness can result in a little more powderiness, but it is such a small amount that it is a minor concern. With Walk of Shame, there was more powderiness than with the more shimmery shades–if you’re familiar with the softer matte textures, it’s as much as expected.

I tested the wear, specifically, of these shades: Chase, Last Call, Shattered, and Loaded. None of the shades I did in recent testing (in actually comparing the formulas) had Urban Decay’s famous (or, perhaps, infamous) micro-glitter, so I’m not yet ready to do a full review on that finish. The original launch date for this was supposed to be a week out yet, which was when I was going to do the bulk of my testing, so I’m really sorry for having to scramble a bit!  With a primer, I didn’t have any wear issues, and I didn’t have wear issues with the originals previously.  Without a primer, these did seem to adhere better to bare skin than the original formula, and after eight hours of wear, there was only minor fading (it wasn’t particularly noticeable except at a very close distance).

I’ll be testing additional shades in the next few weeks and will keep you informed on how the wear goes with those!  These particular shades are some of Urban Decay’s best, so they may represent that end of the spectrum, while other shades more prone to being troublemakers may not do so well in a wear test.

Urban Decay New Eyeshadows (Reformulation) Review, Photos, Swatches

A
I really appreciate the color accuracy between the original formula and the new formula--I couldn't detect any differences between the four I was able to compare side-by-side. The new formula does wear a bit better without primer, though the results were the same when used with a primer. These are softer, smoother, and as a result, more pigmented in a single pass.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase it? How much is it?

Urban Decay, $18 each.

Is it limited edition?

No.

Any dupes?

See individual shade review!

Will these still fit in MAC palettes?

Most likely; I couldn't tell you without actually going about the process, but they look to be the same size as the original Urban Decay eyeshadow pans were. They also hold the same amount (0.05 oz.), so it should work.

    Can you tell the measurement of the palette. I’ve try to took for it everywhere but they never mention. I might not want to get it if it’s *that* bulky. thanks

  2. Avatar of Ashlee Ashlee

    My heart literally stopped beating when I saw Loaded and Mushroom. I’m loving these swatches! Go Christine! :)

    • Mushroom indeed looks so buttery but it was always a good eyeshadow. That being said I’m grabbing every theBalm Palette I can and I’m pretty sure I’ve got this covered. lol

      Shattered reminds me of three eyeshadoews I own. Two in loose pigment form from mineral brands and one from Yaby’s Pearl Paint line. Might have to recommend this to a friend as she is obsessed with that shade.

  3. They all look so amazing! I love mushroom and Shattered, I don’t own any colours like those.

  4. Valerie

    I don’t think I’d buy it.. I don’t think that the colors are very unique.

    • Gina

      They have 68 colors to choose from – these are just the colors Christine chose for her palette! The real “new” product here is the palette itself, not they eyeshadows (though there are some new colors, as well as a new formulation)

  5. Erica

    I think UD Mushroom is the perfect Christina Aguilera-esque nude eye with the cut crease shadow color. It’s my “go to” when I recreate that bombshell nude eye! I use UD Sellout over the lid, from lashline to brow, then Mushroom to cut the crease and blend it out slightly, leaving a subtle, smokey effect. Then use their 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion to create the perfect, iconic winged liner and voila! It’s simple, quick, but always draws attention and compliments! I’m glad to see it as one of your colors you choose. And now I’m wondering how the look might change with Walk of Shame as the lid color? Because Sellout is a satiny finish (like Mushroom), so I wonder how different it would look or come off with a matte lid color?

  6. Loaded and Rockstar look amazing!

  7. Shattered looks SHINY. *w*

    How would you compare the texture to the now discontinued UD Deluxe Eyeshadows, Christine?

  8. I already love Chase, and I haven’t even seen it in person!

  9. rowan

    shattered looks really different, is it just your camera playing tricks? mine is a bright turquoise with a golden sheen, yours looks like a metallic greyish blue?

  10. Saffy

    I’ve been looking for a colour just like Last Call, love burgundy eyeshadows!

  11. I really like Last Call and Shattered. Actually, I really like all your picks, Christine!

    Now seeing Walk of Fame close up and swatched, I *really* don’t get why they’re putting it in every palette, LOL. It’s the least interesting color of the bunch to me. Maybe that’s just me?

    • I think being “boring” probably makes it seem more universal, but the matte finish + light color can be a recipe for chalkiness on deeper skin tones.

      • Avatar of Amy amy

        I think Walk of Shame can be used as a nice all over base shadow for any skin tone, under another shade, either to lighten on a paler skin, or brighten on a darker one. I’m sure UD researched their dominant demographic, as well. So many complained about no matte shades in the Naked Palletes, so they made sure to include a matte. Still, others complained the Naked Palletes were too dark, so UD chose a light shade. More complained about the matte black included in so many other palletes in general (“Couldn’t they put a different matte color in there besides black? How many matte black shadows do I need?”) Lastly, after all the complaints I read, I’d think everyone would be glad they didn’t decide on Half Baked. Besides, not everyone would be happy with whatever color UD put in there. Yes, so many are pretty, but not everyone likes the same colors. Someone, somewhere, will always find a reason to complain.

        Personally, I’d rather they throw the pallette in for free, empty, with the purchase of any shadow, or at least a minimum amount, like three.

        • Hi Amy,

          I agree – that is what I’d like to see. The bottom line is more that why force me into one eyeshadow? And the same one each time you buy a palette? If they want to ensure people buy their eyeshadows with the palette, at least let people have the convenience (which is what you’re paying for) and freedom to choose the shade they’d like. For me, Walk of Shame was chalky, so it doesn’t brighten for me, unfortunately!

  12. Hayley

    Really nice colors! So Urban Decay has completely stopped producing matte eyeshadows? all of the colors with the new formula are shimmery right? :)

  13. Great review! I’m wondering if they’re going to put the reformulated shadows in the Naked I palette. I was worried at first, but since the reformulated shadows are the exact same color and a better texture than the older ones, I’m happy either way :)

    It’s really a pity that they’re going to include Walk of Shame in all the palettes though – it doesn’t look like a universal shade to me at all. It would work fine on me, but not at all on dark skintones.

  14. Avatar of Dootsie Molly_Lag

    I don’t know. Is it just an excuse to charge an extra buck for their product? None of the NEW colors are doing it for me–many of the “new” shades are actually things that were previously released in palettes.

    • I expect it was part of a regular price increase – most brands increase prices every 12-18 months on their products, including UD, so that’s how I took the price tag.

  15. Avatar of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    Shattered is the only shadow I’ve ever hit the pan on. It’s so pretty!

  16. I don’t like this concept at all.
    It feels really unnessecary to have a palette of this size with space for only 6 eyeshadows just because of the exessive packaging around each shadow.

    I think there are much better ways of making a system like this work without sacrificing a ton of space in the palette.

    • I agree. I am wondering if it is possible to remove the pan from the bulky packaging to place it in a sleeker palette without destroying the shadow.

      • It would be the exact same thing people have been doing for years on Urban Decay’s old eyeshadow packaging!

        • Kim

          I think UD did this on purpose because they want us to only use their singles in their palette. I think the 18 tries to get it right was them trying 18 different eyeshadow pans from other companies to make sure they don’t fit in anyway.

  17. Walk of shame looks amaazzing!! :)

  18. Ava

    I was creating a wishlist palette yesterday and Mushroom was in it! It’s my favorite kind of greige. And Walk of Shame looks perfect for me! I’m so excited for this revamp.

  19. Hmm….I am on the fence over this. I think it would be fun to make a palette up, maybe after I have hit pan on a lot of the singles I have now, but it is a shame that it is not more streamlined and I feel with UD palettes that I already have (Naked, Naked 2, Anniversary, etc.) the colours are getting very repetitive. Maybe someday!

  20. Kim

    I think Chase was in the 15th anniversary palette, and from what I can see of your swatches from that palette, it looks pretty much the same.

  21. I own all of the eye shadows that they released from palettes because I have so many palettes from UD. I like your picks though! & mushroom is my to-go color. I’m happy I can finally buy back-ups for Virgin, Mushroom & Radium now if I ever hit pan. (&if I ever hit pan, I would be so happy to finally hit pan) because from collecting makeup from the past 3-4 years, I still have not hit pan on one single item at all.

  22. nice

    I like it but those this new formula justifies the incresing on the price?Imo, No
    The shadows on BOS 4 were not that good, if that is the new formula
    Considering that this is a combo of the regular + deluxe eyeshadow they should give 2,5 grams of product at least 2grams
    I think is pathetic and outrageous
    it would be the same if Mac improves their matte eyeshadow formula and increases the price claiming this beast thing since slice bread.
    I mean is their job to get always the best for the consumer since there are so many good brands out there, and i don’t think making this shadow is more expensive to them
    (imo the american cosmetic brands are going insane)

    • Avatar of Amy amy

      I’m pretty sure the priced aren’t going up due to a “new” formulation, but rather an increase of production costs in general. The materials needed to make the products have to arrive at the factory somehow, and as we all know gasoline prices are up. Actually, all energy prices are up, and it takes “energy” to run a factory. We must also factor in the cost of labor, ie salaries, benefits, insurance, etc, that typically increase annually. Then there is the fiduciary responsibility/obligation to shareholders who expect the company to maintain a bottomline. And how can we forget about the irresponsible consumer, who randomly buys a product, but because after a few uses, decides to return the product, which then gets thrown out (retailers have shareholders, labor, etc as well; we *all* lose out on that one, including retailers & manufacturers. Think about the long term usage of a product *before* buying. If you don’t usually wear blue eyeshadow, try a cheap brand first, to get a sense of the color, before laying out $20+ for an eyeshadow. We, as consumers, can be quite powerful in determining prices; if it’s too expensive, we don’t buy, therefore driving down prices. The US is a free-market society driven by the principles of supply & demand. UD charges what they do because we will pay it. Instead of complaining about goods/prices, just don’t buy them.

      • nice

        True
        But gas prices are way higher in Europe than in the U.S(is pretty shocking how cheap it is there) and the cost of labor in the U.S is cheaper than, let’s say, in France
        And still MUFE gives you a 2.5gr for 19$ and UD gives for 1.5gr for 18$.

        • Avatar of Amy amy

          There are other factors, as well, such as the strength of currency and wages, and then there are still the obligations to shareholders. Also, do we know where the products used to create the shadows come from? Perhaps they come from Europe, I honestly don’t know. Also, here in the US, we have too liberal return policies that *alot* of consumers take advantage of. Besides, they know we’ll still pay the price. So many people hated the N2, but they flew off the shelves, even at $50.

          • nice

            I totally agree with u
            Those return policies do not exist in Europe, u buy a beauty product u keep it.
            I never understood why someone would buy something, like a few Mac collection products, than return it”cause they were not really sure if they want to keep it” lol
            I love UD but as a consumer im looking for the best with best prices.

  23. nice

    I like it but does this new formula justifies the incresing on the price?Imo, No

  25. Avatar of Kimberly Kimberly

    Hi Christine! What is the difference between the regular shadows and the Deluxe eyeshadows? Thank you.

  26. Avatar of Wenz Wenz

    I love UD but I actually feel like they took a step back with this idea. Good concept but I think its poorly executed based on whats already available in the market. I really liked their old packaging. After depoting shadows, I re-purposed pots for travel- to store jewelry, pills, & other products (instead of spending more $ to buy travel containers). But now I have to find space to store palette & the actual eyeshadow “pot”… :(

    I Love UD so I’m sure I’ll try a few colors eventually- Mushroom & Loaded are calling my name!!
    Thanks as always Christine- U ROCK!!

    • Haha! Yeah, I think if you just want a palette… opt for the pre-made ones – probably less money/better deal. I have several loose pots, and it’s a little annoying that I’m just storing empty containers, lol! It’s that same ol’ storage problem – you need containers to store your crap in… and you need a container for your containers!

      • Avatar of Wenz Wenz

        LOL Yeah I know right!
        Hopefully they don’t get too “creative” and stop making those better value type palettes altogether!!! :/

  27. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    If UD was really smart, they’ve have brought you ladies in AHEAD of the changes, to get some quality feedback, since you and some of the other “gurus” really know your stuff and also hear from the rest of use about what we love and hate…. I’m sort of kicking myself that some of the shadows for which I bought entire palettes just so I could have that ONE shadow are now available on their own (Mushroom and Loaded come most to mind) but all in all, it is nice to know that I’ll be able to replace them now. Christine, was anyone able to raise the issue of colours like Midnight Cowboy Rides Again and Mauie Wowie and the glitter fall out that renders them almost unusable for most of us? (I haven’t checked yet to see if those have been discontinued or if they’re still in the regular line). If you’ve already been asked this a dozen times and answered, I apologize.

    • Wende (cofounder) said there was “less glitter fallout” from the notes I took during the visit, but that’s about all I heard on it. Like I’ll never understand how those are the popular shades. I rarely see women wearing eye makeup other than eyeliner/mascara, but even less than that, I never see people with glitter all over their face from MCRA and yet it’s one of their bestsellers!

      • beachgal

        I get compliments when I wear MCRA and have little bits of glitter sitting on the top of my cheeks. It’s funny – like you said best seller and many love the look – I wear it only blended with something else or a tiny bit of it in the mid eye as a eye poppin opener.

  28. I wonder how oil slick is now that its reformulated. I always lvoe the effect because the glitter really does show up, but I hate dealing with fallout

  29. beachgal

    Always excited for new things from UD. It’s my all time go to eyeshadow and has been for a # of yrs. I will miss a few of the shades they removed out of the line. Congrats by the way over your having a pallet named after you in the bloggers eye shadow pallets. I saw it over on the UD site. I am scrambling to get some of the older discontinued shades. It will be nice to have an interchangeable pallet for the shadows. I hope they come out with them in different sizes. But this is a good start – nice for travel and also for your current go to favs. I wish there were more mattes. UD made the best mattes ever and was crushed when they practically eliminated them.

    • What I think is the funniest part about the mattes is that the shades they have now… are all neutral – and a lot of the shades they brought pack… are neutral. Nothing wrong with neutrals (I like how I look in neutrals over brights these days), but it is funny since they already have Naked 1 and 2 and I feel like UD is or was known for COLOR!

    How does Mushroom compare to Pistol from the Naked 2 palette?

  31. Avatar of Crystal crystal

    i love love loaded but im sad about strip are there any dupes of strip..

  32. YellowLantern

    Do you have an opinion on the quality of the included brush?

    Since I’m sure part of the palette price comes from the brush I’m wondering if it’s as horrendous as the included brush in the Naked 2 palette. The Naked 2 brush is almost unusable to me as one side is way to stiff and the other side too floppy.

    Rockstar is really lovely!

    Thanks for the review and swatches!

    • I’m not a huge fan of it – the shape just doesn’t work that well for me for eyeshadow, though it feels soft to the touch. For me, it’s not fluffy enough – I don’t want it to flop around, but it should have some fluff and density to pick up the powder!

  33. Hi christine! I love loaded!!! sadly, No Urban decay here in Philippines!

  34. Avatar of Alison Alison

    I like that they’ve upped their game and simply made their formula better.

  35. BooBooNinja

    I was in Sephora yesterday, looking for a teal eyeshadow and eyeliner. I swatched Shattered from the AMMO palette and it looked bluer on my NC20/25 skin. Christine, is Shattered at all similar to MAC Peacock? Or the MAC Partylicious pigment? (Oh gosh.. that pigment is so gorgeous. I wish I was into makeup when it was released.)

  36. BooBooNinja

    By the way, this is a tremendous review. It is comprehensive and articulate, you provide well-supported arguments (your degree is coming in handy!), and your demonstration and comparisons are excellent. I wouldn’t get this myself as I find it quite bulky. I am a small person so it would be annoying to pack when I travel (for both the weight and size issues) and I like to be efficient with my space at home. I’ll definitely be “leaving it”.

    Out of curiosity, would this palette be compatible with MAC eyeshadows that have been popped out of their pots but not fully depotted from the plastic?

    • Probably – I haven’t tested if they’re compatible, but I suspect they should be similar. I know the insert itself looks to be the same size, not sure if the notching is the same.

  37. beck

    Nice….I really want to build a palette with the new versions eventually. Why isn’t Walk of Shame on the new full list? I thought I did’nt see it listed? Is it LE or something?

  38. Avatar of Sam Sam

    I’m excited for the new shadows to launch! UD is my favorite eyeshadow formula. The palette… I’m not so hot for. It’s a great idea, but after much thought and comparison, I’d much rather just get the shades individually, depot as usual, and stick ‘em in a Z Palette. The value just isn’t there for their palette and shadows together. Oh well!

    On another note, could you spare some advice for colors? :) I really love Rockstar (and the name is TOTALLY me) but it looks quite similar to Freakshow, which I already own. Rockstar’s red undertones look a bit more subtle than Freakshow, though. Also, how does Mushroom compare to Pistol? I’ve been all over Pistol lately! Do you think it’s justifiable to buy both? Thanks, Christine! :D

    • Rockstar is definitely different from Freakshow – Freakshow is a bit brighter, doesn’t have that smoky quality of Rockstar. Mushroom is darker, not quite as brown as Pistol, and it has more of a metallic finish. HTH!

  39. kiran

    I have got to have these…delicious!! :D

  40. Chase looks like a must have shade! I’ve got a palette of these on their way to me, so I can’t wait to try them out. Love your swatches and color choices!

  41. NIKKI

    What I like about the new formulation is that it’s paraben free. I’ve always steered clear of the brand because all of their products are chock full of parabens, but it looks like I can finally check them out. Its really cool when a brand takes the concerns of the consumers and actually takes action.

  42. Becca

    thank you for doing all of these swatches Christine! I have a question though; my friends was wondering whether the new Urban Decay create your own palette idea will also be in available in Canada? Thanks in advance for your help :)

  43. MissMercurial

    I love the new look of their packaging. Don’t get me wrong, the subway token thing is cool, too, but these look so professional and classy.

  44. Taccora

    Is it possible for you to swatch Loaded next to Mac’s blue brown and deep blue green pigments?

  45. I’m mostly interested in these new shadows going into a customizable palette–maybe a way to compete with MAC’s empty palettes??

  46. Jersey Girl

    I think the people who are saying negative things about this palette are being a bit short-sided… First, if you don’t need/want a build it yourself palette, don’t buy it! I did buy it, because like most everyone else I own tons of UD palettes. But UD’s bulky packaging makes traveling with their palettes just not feasible. Plus, I honestly use only two colors from Naked 1 and three colors from Naked 2. And I don’t want to pay $50 for two or three palette-exlusive colors. But now I can have all my favorite colors in one palette and just pay for the colors I need. While I’m not in love with the design of the palette and I wish UD would sell the shadows as refills for a couple bucks cheaper with less packaging, overall I’m happy that my favorite colors are available as singles and now there’s an empty palette I can put them in. Just remember, you don’t have to buy the palette and 5 (or 6) shadows all at one time. You can just buy the palette and take your time filling it!

  47. Reen

    Hi, Christine. I really love this review. I’ve been wanting the Last Call shade lately and I am currently looking for a dupe since UD is pretty expensive here in my country.
    After much browsing along this blog, I personally think that Inglot #452 is quite similiar in shade with Last Call.
    What do you think? 

  48. sparklecup

    Hi. I just got back from IMATS Pasadena 2012, and I think Inglot Pearl 445 is a pretty close dupe for Last Call.

  49. Oh gosh, these are gorgeous! I’ve been a fan of UD eyeshadows for a long time, so this reformulation is exciting to see. Loaded looks so stunning! 

  50. This post reminds me I haven’t used my Urban Decay Ammo Palette in a long while! I just dug it out and Shattered and Last Call are in there! Yay! I’m gonna try to use this palette again soon! Thanks for the review! Loaded looks really gorgeous..

  51. cythaleanna

    I believe chase was also released as part of the US 15th Anniversary Palette :)

  55. They’re very pretty!!! I love the loaded eyeshadow!!! :D
