Extragalactic

Urban Decay Extragalactic Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, plummy burgundy with warm, reddish undertones and flecks of pink, copper, and plum sparkle. The Moondust formula is supposed to have “minimal fallout” that “feels like a cream, but goes on like a powder.” They can be used wet for “extra intense color payout.” The eyeshadow had mostly opaque dry and totally opaque coverage applied damp, but the big difference was in how much smoother the powder applied with a damp brush. It had a fairly soft texture, though there was quite a bit of sparkle to it, so I could feel that by touch (not rough… just sparkly). It applied decently to bare skin but is a shade I’d apply over a glitter adhesive or with a damp brush to minimize fallout and improve the overall longevity of the product (six and a half hours dry, eight hours damp with some fallout either way).

Midnight Blast

Urban Decay Midnight Blast Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had opaque pigmentation both dry and damp but the metallic and glittery finish came through more intensely when applied damp. The powder also combined and adhered better to bare skin when applied with a damp brush, though it was quite workable even dry (better than many shades in the formula). It blended out easily without having a ton of fallout. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours dry and eight hours damp with minimal fallout.

For something like this, I like Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy (the latter is a bit easier to blend regular powders over, IMO). I also like Lit’s glitter adhesive for glitter in general!

Have you tried the Nyx Glitter Primer? I believe it’s either $5.99 or $6.99. That would be a lot easier to do than drop the approx $22 too faced version. I really need to get one with so many glittery, metallic, “foiled”, etc shadows being everywhere lately. No matter how much I tap, fallout happens.

Both look so lush and sparkly! I actually have 3 of the 85% dupes for Midnight Blast: CP Weenie, EE Swerve and L’Oreal Amber Rush, but none of these quite compare when it comes to how beautiful MB looks applied wet. Sooo…I may just *need* it?
Extragalactic reminds me of my pan of CP stereo for some odd reason?!? Yet different from the pan that I bought for my friend last year… weird!

I immediately thought Extragalactic looked like my pan of Stereo also! These are both so pretty, and I love the way Moondust shadows look when I take the time to use them, but I typically don’t reach for them that often because I prefer something a little more “grab and go.”

I love both though extragalactic would fit more with my current stash. I’d probably just use it in the middle of the lid as a pop.
