Boogie

Urban Decay Boogie Decades Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan palette that included one matte shade, one pressed glitter, and four more shimmery shades. Turn the Beat was the hardest shade to work with, while Glitter Scene performed decently as one would expect a pressed glitter to, though there’s still room for improvement in that type of formula (in general). The other shades were better and easier to work with: pigmented, blendable, and had decent longevity.

Disco Diva

Disco Diva is a bright, very light yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was slightly thicker, which had a tendency to emphasize skin texture if I wasn’t careful to smooth it out–preferably with a fingertip or a dampened brush–but it had opaque color coverage. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.05 oz. - $380.00 Per Ounce

The formula is typically described as "high-pigment" that "stays on your lids" and goes on "seamlessly." Their permanent range has a lot of fantastic shades in it, and many of them are pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. Some of their matte are real workhorse kind of shades with soft, smooth, silky, and blendable textures, while their shimmers and pearly shades are very rich in payoff and apply beautifully to the lid. They wear between seven and nine hours on me, depending on the shade and finish.

Outlandish

Outlandish is a medium-dark brown with soft, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and picked up nicely with a dry brush. The texture was smooth, not too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

I Like It

I Like It is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable, though it was lightly powdery in the pan. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Glitter Scene

Glitter Scene has a translucent base and is packed with iridescent, small-particle glitter that effectively looked like a silvery rainbow. The texture was very emollient–wet to the touch–and had decent dispersion and more semi-opaque “coverage” as a result. When I tested it as a cheek highlighter, it stayed in place fairly with with light migration over an eight-hour period.

It contains plastic (PET) glitter, though I did not see any warning or callout about it (this is not the first incident nor first brand to use glitter and no longer have a warning that it’s not for the eye area!).

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Glitter" contain Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as plastic or PET glitter, and it is typically cosmetic grade glitter. Inclusion of this ingredient sometimes carries a warning (in the US) that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." This ingredient has not been approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. In recent years, some brands are including this product in their eyeshadows without any warning or callout and effectively marketing them as eyeshadows or including a symbol of an "eye" which suggests eye usage. Via CosIng for EU, PET glitter is permitted without any restrictions or limitations. For an in-depth look at whether cosmetic grade glitter is safe, please view this post.

Club Hop

Club Hop is a medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–the shimmer came through more noticeably than the base color, which let some skin show through–with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture that had a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan. The product applied fairly evenly and had only a smidgen of fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Turn the Beat

Turn the Beat is a blackened green base with lighter, emerald green pearl and micro-sparkle. The texture was drier and thinner, which resulted in more faded, uneven coverage in a single layer. It was buildable to some degree, but I’d recommend using it over a primer and pressing/patting it into place to get truer-to-pan intensity. You’ll want to do eyes first, though, has there were a lot of flyaway particles as I built it up and blended out the edges. It stayed on decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Why do these companies persist with the glitter? It’s only a matter of time before someone sustains eye damage and sues.

At any rate, the only shade here that seemed interesting was Turn the Beat, but it’s really disappointing. (On the upside, I now have “Turn the Beat Around” in my head, which is a refreshing change!)

If Turn The Beat had been better, and Glitter Scene had been a non-PET glitter, I could’ve gotten down with this little palette. But, nope.

This could have been a really pretty little gem, apart from the caramel shade; but no – UD had to completely muck it up by adding a glitter number (that nobody likes or is game to wear) and absolutely wreck a gorgeous green shade.. and this is the brand that gave us Damaged (one of the most perfect green shades ever).
I just feel like UD is trying to fail instead of trying to succeed.
Outlandish was my favourite shade in the end.

Couldn’t agree more, G!!! Your comment about Turn the Beat reflects my reaction 100%; it’s the one I was most interested in and when I saw how bad it looks swatched, I also thought about Damaged and also Loaded (I actually saw a single of Loaded 2 weeks ago at Winners but as I have it already, there seemed little point in getting it, even seriously marked down). It really is like UD is “trying to fail” – you hit the nail on the head with that comment!

I’m still thinking of buying this, mostly for the packaging (’70s fan here), and if I do I’m going to pry out that glitter disaster-waiting-to-happen and replace it with something else.

And I’m not sure how this will sound, but Turn the Beat actually looks like a crappy eyeshadow one might have bought in the ’70s!

I was actually getting excited as i read this review, thinking if the glitter was the only downside, I would consider it. But Turn the Beat is disappointing, kind of kills it for me. I think this is a really great concept, and I wish UD had executed it better with the quality; I also feel like some of the colors overlap, in which case i feel like the shades that don’t really need to stand out. And, as others have said, stop with the PET glitter, although to be fair, I’m sure there was a lot of nonsafe eyeglitter being used in all the decades. Just don’t put it in my eyeshadow palette.

Turn The Beat should have been the star of this palette, instead it’s a disappointment again. I am probably going to purchase Loaded instead. Is it just me, or the dupe list disappeared?
