Editor's Review

Faded is a subdued, medium-dark purple with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. While a lot of the "matte" eyeshadows had "floating pearl" (Urban Decay's terminology), this one seemed to have larger sparkle. I found that the larger size seemed to make this even harder to apply, as the sparkles would pull away from the purple base but also pull some of the purple eyeshadow away, which resulted in sheer, uneven coverage. I had better luck using this over an eyeshadow primer, but it was still a fussy shade to blend out. It worked better layered over another eyeshadow. The color started to fade after seven hours on me. Urban Decay Gone Mad (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Violet (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Orchid (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, brighter (95% similar). MAC Indian Ink (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). KVD Beauty Venom (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). KVD Beauty Ribbon (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Spice of Life (Pumpkin Spice) (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar).
