Editor's Review

Asphyxia is described as a "hyacinth shimmer with blue shift." It's a light-medium, pinky-lavender with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that didn't build up much beyond semi-opaque at most. The texture was thinner and a little dusty to work with, which may have been why pigmentation was lacking. It lasted for six and a half hours. LORAC Smoothie (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Stars 'n' Rockets (P, $17.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Hot Pants (DC, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). L'Oreal With a Twist (LE, $7.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). ColourPop Luna (Sailor Moon) (LE, $4.50) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Tainted (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Tonic (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Becca Abalone (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Jelly (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Paranoia (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). Urban Decay Grifter (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Claims / Ingredients

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.

Talc, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Zinc Stearate, PTFE, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid. May contain: CI 77019 (Mica), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 75470 (Carmine), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide), CI 77163 (Bismuth Oxychloride).
