5 Ways to Wear Urban Decay Honey Eyeshadow + Giveaway!

Urban Decay Honey Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is BACK! A few months ago, Urban Decay reached out to me about possibly bringing back Honey eyeshadow (as I had previously told them how sad I was about it being discontinued), and now, it’s back! It’s a really rich, molten, medium-dark yellow gold with a frosted finish–and the texture was incredible in the original, and it’s even better now: soft, buttery, and intensely pigmented. Now, here are five different ways to wear Honey (and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win all the products to recreate one of the eye looks!)…

These are absolutely GORGEOUS – I would love to win look #1 because I’m trying to get better at using eyeshadows and it seems like the perfect way to start – just beautiful!

OMG I AM FREAKING OUT. I LOVE HONEY SO MUCH. ASDFGHJKL;
I like the Playful Honey look the most. It’s vibrant and pretty and ps i totally wouldn’t be mad if Honey 24/7 pencil also came back at some point…

Eeeee!!! Honey is back!!! My dream is has come true!!! Great giveaway, I love the idea of winning a whole eye look! I went with the playful one, because just looking at it made me happy!

I was so excited to see the email. However, was kinda let down to see its the eyeshadow not the eyeliner being brought back. Will be ordering this though.

I wish they would bring the Honey eyeliner back! I own the honey shadow and love it, but a liner would be amazing! Love the looks you did with the shadow Christine!

I really hope, if this is well received, they’ll bring back their Honey 24/7 liner. In the mean time I can definitely live with this. It’s such a unique tone of gold

Christine, how do you think it compares to Tarina Tarantino’s eyeshadow quality? Those eyeshadows have been the easiest for me to put along my lower lash line in place of eyeliner

Smoked Honey! So beautiful. I’m so excited they rereleased this shade – here’s hoping they’ll rerelease the Honey 24/7 eyeliner as well!

look 3 is definitely my favorite! I never thought of really using eyeshadow to add some shimmer to a lipcolor though- I will have to try it!

Hard choices! I think Golden Honey is my favorite. I would still like to say that the lips on Playful Honey are pretty amazing. Great looks, Christine!

Ooh boy this is a tough one to choose from! They’re all beautiful! I love the Smoked Honey the most, though: it’s very wearable and flattering for brown eyes (which is good news for this brown-eyed girl) :).

I’m glad the UD really listens to their consumers when it comes to bringing favorite products back! Love all the looks on you!

Number 3 is just so pretty and great for summer and spring. That gold is a true gold, a lot of gold eyeshadows come off too bronze.

Oh man these are gorge <3 I don't wear enough color to be able to wear Playful without crazy intimidation, but Smoked and Golden…oh man. And i love it over Anarchy! I love this blog c:

Awesome eyeshadow and great giveaway! πŸ˜€ will definitely be adding this to my wish list. Is it here to stay or limited time/edition only?

I love look #3, but that might just be because I’m obsessed with Psychedelic Sister liner and Woodstock shadow…

And the lip combo?! Oh my stars.

I love look #2!! Half baked is my fave UD shadow but I think Honey might take its place. It’s so pretty!

The Rafflecopter option for the looks says Playful Honey is #2 and Smoked Honey is #3… should we be voting by the number or the name? I’d hate to think #2 would win because people think it’s smoked honey when it’s actually playful honey (and vice versa).

Hey Kelsey!

I don’t know why it’s showing that way, because on my end, it says #2 — Smoked Honey, #3 — Playful Honey!

It’s showing that way for me too! (#2 Playful and #3 Smoked) I just voted for Look 3 even though it said Smoked (I’d love Playful). The photos right above the choices show the correct looks, it’s only the options, so I figured it was just a typo or something.

Regardless, I really love ALL of these looks! I don’t think I could pull off that Anarchy lipstick but I LOVE the eyeshadow look.

Thanks, Alyssa! I’ve checked it across devices and had a few friends check on their computers and it’s showing right for everyone I’ve asked! I don’t know how to fix it!

Those killer lipssssssssssssssssssssss XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX πŸ™‚

sorrryyyyyyy , hope they are still intact

mind blowing looks dear πŸ™‚ as soon as i got my mail “Temptalia’s honey is back” i immediately opened Temptalia but by then this post was not up ..
so before sleeping i wanted to double check πŸ˜€

i want to win look 3 πŸ™‚

give my eyeliner also naaa … plleashhhseeeeeeeee

My safe choices would be #1 or #2, but I’m going to say #3, Playful Honey. Out of my comfort zone, but hey, it’s a raffle! What better way to try new things?

In the rafflecopter options the names of looks 2 and 3 are mixed up! I’d love to win for look #2 (which is Smoked Honey in the pics) but in the options it’s under #3. It’s definitely a lovely eyeshadow.

I hope #2 wins (and I hope I win the giveaway, as it’s only available on UD.com which doesn’t ship dirrectly to Canada)

Playful Honey is awesome! Not that there is a bad look in the bunch though. Honey was a great shade. I’m glad it’s back! πŸ˜€

Smoked Honey is my favorite look simply because I find it the most wearable on a daily basis. Of course you pull ’em all off, though, Christine…classic! πŸ˜‰

I want playful honey to win, love all the colors! IDK if anyone else’s did this, but the options say #2 Playful honey and #3 Smoked honey, while you have look #2 in the pics as smoked honey and #3 as playful honey.

This eyeshadow is so intense! That’s really impressive for a gold like this. Also, patting it over lipstick is such a great idea. The final look is no nice!

OMG Yes, I am super happy they brought honey back. I love this shade so much(stocked up when it was clearanced) and am glad I can repurchase it if I run out. This is by far one of the best gold eyeshadows i’ve ever found/tried.

Also love the above looks and have actually done one’s similar to 2 and 3 picking a fav between the to is hard. I guess it would have to be 2 if I had to pick just one.

Thanks for sharing the great info that Honey is back!

I’ve never given much thought to the Urban Decay single pots, but I definitely need to change that attitude. Really beautiful shade and thanks for sharing all the different looks!
