Standoff is a light-medium beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had just enough shimmer in it to look like a sheen on my skin but didn't appear overtly shimmery. It had a soft, moderately powdery consistency that had light fallout during application. It had mostly opaque coverage but was prone to sheering out during application. This shade lasted well for seven hours before fading visibly.

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.
