Urban Decay Dive Bar EyeshadowUrban Decay Dive Bar Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a "medium blue with pink-purple shift." It's a muted, medium-dark, periwinkle blue with lighter violet shimmer and sheen. There's a definite shift with this one that you can see with ease. It had semi-opaque color payoff, though it was very buildable and applied well to bare skin. The texture is so dense that it feels almost like a cream product, and there is no fall out or powdery excess--it feels unlike the majority of the brand's current eyeshadow range as a result. It goes on well but also blends beautifully and takes little time to diffuse. It lasted for eight hours on me. I really liked this one, even though it could have been more pigmented right off the bat, and it was a more unique shade within my stash. Giorgio Armani #19 (P, $32.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Center Stage (P, $9.99) is darker, less of a duochrome. ColourPop Kimono (P, $5.00) is a cream product, warmer. Dior Atlantique #4 (LE) is lighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #6 (LE) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #3 (LE) is brighter, bluer. Wet 'n' Wild I Don’t Do Camouflage #3 (LE, $2.29) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Wintersky (LE, $32.50) is similar. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
