Urban Decay Jade is a moderately warm-toned, light green with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Jade is a light-medium green with moderate, warm undertones paired with warmer golden-green and emerald green flecks of sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque coverage applied with fingertips, which could be built up slightly but came at the cost of a fair amount of fallout.
As instructed by the brand, I applied it with my fingertips, and that was accurate as the formula was terrible with brushes; I tried a slew of brushes in my personal arsenal as well as the included dual-ended brush. The included brush's fluffier end tended to disperse the sparkle/shimmer far from where it was initially placed without really blending the edge.
The texture felt lightly creamy in the pan but needed a bit more glide, which would have made it easier to work with on the lid and likely would have minimized fallout during application. There was creasing after seven hours of wear and had light fallout over time.
