Urban Decay Radium Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “peacock blue shimmer.” It’s a bold, bright medium blue with cool undertones and a frosted finish. Buxom Bulldog is a touch darker and is a cream product. NYX Kiss in Casablanca is less frosted but very similar in color. MAC Pure Creation is darker, more muted, and a cream product.

This shade was once a palette-exclusive, but when Urban Decay reformulated their eyeshadows, it made it into their permanent range. It was one of my favorite shades then, and it’s one of my favorite shades now. The texture is soft, buttery, and dense; so smooth and intensely pigmented, Radium is a dream to work with. Whether you want rich color or need to blend it out to soften, both are easily achieved. It lasted a full nine hours on me without creasing or fading.
