Round-up: Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows Overview & Thoughts

Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) include eight shades that will be permanent. These are a vast improvement than some of the holiday eyeshadows that came out last year, which I was less enthused about (they were often dry and/or powdery). The six shimmery shades had a really soft, almost cream-like smoothness to them that made them extremely blendable on the skin, while they wore well and had good pigmentation across the board. The two mattes were silky and soft, though Beware didn’t blend as easily as I expected given how nice the texture felt swatched. My favorite was Dive Bar, which was also one of the more unique shades in the range, followed by Fireball.

I love the new Lounge. Even though I still have a backup of the original, this new incarnation looks lovely, and I really like UD’s new formulation eye shadows quite well. The old formula was great, on me, the new formula is divine. I just love their eye shadows.

I still really want Dive Bar, and Sideline if I can figure out how to really bring out its green shift. I’m also still tempted by Tonic, Backfire, and Lounge — this is a nice collection of colors!

I am so anxious to see Tonic in person. It’s so pretty – plus it’s duochrome. I also need to check the ingredients to make sure no carmine. I could really use a color like that, so I’m waiting (with my credit card) to see it in person!

Fireball, Tonic and Dive Bar are what I’m waiting on Sephora to get in stock. Whenever on earth that will be. One may wonder: “why Sephora?” The points! (waiting on Rapture blush too!)
