VR had a reddish-copper base with warm undertones and iridescent aqua-green sparkle. The texture was incredibly firmly-pressed in the pan, stiff to work with, and so dry and thin that it felt and sounded papery. I had to jab at the surface to get sheer coverage for a swatch, and in practice, I had to really push and jab at the surface and then apply it with a fingertip to get decent coverage on my skin but it was never opaque (even over primer). It applied fairly evenly, which was a surprise, with a fingertip, at least! It started to fade after six hours of wear 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.
