Urban Decay Paradox is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium orange with a frost finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Paradox is a brighter, medium orange with warm, tangerine shimmer. The eyeshadow had great color coverage in a single layer. The texture was smooth to the touch, soft and blendable but not powdery or prone to fallout. It lasted well for eight hours on me.

Urban Decay’s groundbreaking new eye shadow formula. This reformulation of Urban Decay’s eye shadow features even softer, amazingly velvety texture; richer, more dense and decadent color; smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability; and longer-lasting, more crease-free wear. The new line of shadows features a completely revamped assortment of shades, new textures, and a totally redesigned token compact. The secret to the new formula is Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietory blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the formula resulting in insane color payout, color that stays on your lids, and sparkle that doesn’t fall. The amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Every Urban Decay shade is silky, blendable, and stays put.
