Urban Decay Midnight Blaze is a very warm-toned, medium-dark green with a satin finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Midnight Blaze is a blackened brown with warmer, olive undertones and a fine pearl sheen. This was a terrible shade; it was extremely stiff and firm in the pan, which resulted in very sheer, uneven coverage that was only achievable when I scraped powder from the surface of the pan as it was just that stiff in the pan. It was hard to blend, but on the upside, it lasted for a whole six hours. LORAC Jade (PiP, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Burberry Khaki (08) (DC, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
