Urban Decay Opal Aura is a slightly cool-toned, very light duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Opal Aura is a silvery white with an iridescent, metallic sheen. It had medium coverage, which didn't build up much beyond that, as applied with fingertips. The base seemed more transparent, which I think made it easier to work with than a lot of other shades in the palette because it did not look as uneven and just looked more brightening. The product itself applied somewhat unevenly and thickly in places.
The texture was lightly creamy, less dense and dry compared to most of the shimmer shades in the palette. It stayed on decently for eight hours before creasing but didn't seem prone to fallout during wear.
