Urban Decay Hot Box is a moderately warm-toned, very dark green with a satin finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Hot Box is a deep green with subtle, warm undertones and a mix of cooler, emerald green and gold sparkle over a more matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer. The texture was drier to the touch, and I found that the sparkles tended to sheer away from the underlying powder, so it tended to look murky and matte on the lid in practice. It could have been easier to work with and to blend out on the l id. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.
