Urban Decay Snare Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Snare Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Snare Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “smoky olive green shimmer.” It’s a smoky olive green with subtle brown undertones and a gray cast. It has a shimmery, frosted finish. MAC Enviable is lighter. Giorgio Armani #25 has a deeper base. bareMinerals Speaker Box is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever #84 is less frosted.

It’s a new (and permanent!) shade that launches February 1st at Urban Decay as well as in Sephora in JCP stores. The pigmentation level was nice, being very true-to-pan, and the resulting finish was shimmering and sparkling without resulting in fall out.  The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled; it had a very dense, buttery feel that you’d expect from Urban Decay’s formula. I found it looked greener as I blended out the color on the lid, so depending on how you apply it, the color can look smokier and grayer or warmer and greener.  Snare wore well for a full nine hours (no primer), as I didn’t see any signs of fading or creasing.

    I really love this. It’s a non-boring neutral, which seems to be my go-to :)

    Why are they only going to be available in the Sephora inside JCP? Will they ever be available at the Sephora stand alone stores?

    • No idea – they are exclusive to those two places for now.

        That’s weird. Maybe they are trying to push the JCP stores or something. Although, the sephora closest to me is inside a JCP so I don’t mind too much.

        • I’m sure it’s definitely part of some push for sales through certain channels vs. others, but hopefully, after some period of time, they’ll be available at all the regular places, too.

    It looks great!

  7. Ooh, I love this color. It’s cool that it has a bit of green in it, very pretty.

    Could this be a dupe for Lancome’s Erika F too? :-)

    • Sorry, I don’t have that!

    • Maris

      They might be cousins. I own Erika F and it is more shimmer than solid color. This Urban Decay shadow looks more solid color than shimmer.
      Not sure but I think Lancome USA has something more similar to Erika F in the All That Glitters single e/s

    This looks gorgeous beyond belief. If I don’t have anything similar, I will certainly be getting me one of these. Just gorgeous!

    Reminds me of MAC Greensmoke.

  14. Gorgeous! It looks so pigmented and almost creamy! I still have not tried UD’s new shadow formula but I have some in mind that I really want to try. This one is going on the list!

  15. Jenny

    omg, I don’t have a color like this at all and I love olive/dark/smokey greens… this may be the color that will finally get me into UD single e/s pans rather than just buying UD palettes, lol…

  16. Wow I ADORE this shade. Absolutely love it.

  17. Alexandra
