Urban Decay Fluorescent is a very cool-toned, light-medium aqua with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Fluorescent is a light-medium, bluish aqua with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a very powdery consistency that also felt a bit dry and thin. There was a lot of fallout, even when I tried to tap off excess from my brush, along with a moderate amount of kick up in the pan. It had little coverage, did not build up, and was uneven when applied to bare skin. There was visible fading after four hours of wear.
Over primer, it adhered somewhat better and wasn't as uneven, but it was still a difficult shade to work with. If I blended it heavily with Jolt, I could get it to look decent but I couldn't use it as a transition shade (say with Chaos below it) because the edge would not blend enough.

Urban Decay’s groundbreaking new eye shadow formula.

The amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Every Urban Decay shade is silky, blendable, and stays put.
