Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Space Cowboy Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “light champagne with bright silver sparkle.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium brown base with lighter champagne and beige shimmer and sparkle. bareMinerals Kudos is less sparkly and almost has a little duochrome. shu uemura P Soft Beige 832 has a pearly finish. MAC Summer Haze is warmer–a little peachy. MAC Sweet Satisfaction has a satin finish.

Space Cowboy had similar color payoff used both dry and wet; applying it damp did intensify the underlying base color ever-so-slightly. Even the finish is the same: sparkly, metallic, but it doesn’t smooth down as fully as other shades in the range. It retains a more frosted finish. This shade gave me more problems with fall out compared to the others–it just didn’t seem to bind/adhere as well. It worked best when really pressed against the lid using a sponge-tip applicator. Within the shade range, this is the most “everyday” kind of color–the kind where you can just sweep it on and go (well, technically, not practically!). It wore seven hours but lightly creased by eight hours. For a comparison to their Stardust eyeshadows, please read this review.

This shade creased slightly after eight hours, and it had even more fall out compared to the other shades. It was not as buildable either, so it was missing the marks all around.

    I do really like the color though.

  2. this looks so beautiful! but glitter shadows always have so much fallout :(

    As soon as I saw “Cowboy” in the name, my “glitter fallout sensors” went off. I will pass on this one, even though the colour looks lovely when swatched. Some things are just too much trouble and I already have enough troublesome “Cowboys” in my collection.

  4. This color isn’t as unique to me. But it’s still pretty. Too bad it wasn’t the greatest to apply.

    How similar is it to MAC’s pressed pigment in spot lit?
