Urban Decay Raw Energy is a moderately warm-toned, light lavender with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Raw Energy has a more mid-tone purple paired with iridescent, greenish-gold chunks that mixed to a medium, warmer lavender with flecks of gold and pink sparkle. The consistency was a real disappointment; it was dry, thin, and difficult to pick up, even with a fingertip. I was able to get semi-sheer coverage at BEST! using a fingertip, but it was somewhat buildable, which helped me pile it on for more semi-opaque coverage.
It seemed more forgiving when built up compared to other shades as it wasn't as chunky. The color stayed on for eight hours and didn't seem prone to creasing or fallout.
