Ambitious is a medium-dark copper with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was very blendable on my lid. Something I noticed, however, was that it wasn't very metallic on my lid--it lost a lot of shine, even if I used it with a wet brush. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Urban Decay’s groundbreaking new eye shadow formula. This reformulation of Urban Decay’s eye shadow features even softer, amazingly velvety texture; richer, more dense and decadent color; smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability; and longer-lasting, more crease-free wear. The new line of shadows features a completely revamped assortment of shades, new textures, and a totally redesigned token compact. The secret to the new formula is Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietory blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the formula resulting in insane color payout, color that stays on your lids, and sparkle that doesn’t fall. The amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Every Urban Decay shade is silky, blendable, and stays put.
