Urban Decay Graffiti Eyeshadow

Going Green with Urban Decay, Part 2

Urban Decay Graffiti Deluxe Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a vibrant shade of grass green. I originally tried it out back in March, in this St. Patrick’s Day Look. It’s a very edgy green–not quite grass, not dark–bright enough to get noticed, but it’s not neon either. The texture of Urban Decay’s Deluxe Eyeshadows is amazing–smooth, buttery, intensely pigmented. It’s rich, luxe, and so, so smooth.

Deluxe Eyeshadows are also available in these shades: Fishnet (iridescent purple), Freakshow (deep purple with red sheen), Frigid (deep purple with blue sheen), Honey (glistening gold), Peace (shimmering turquoise), Ransom (vibrant iridescent purple), Ruthless (pale sandy taupe shimmer), Scratch (shimmering silver pink), Shag (tan shimmer), Zero (smoking black), and Underground (taupe brown shimmer).

The packaging is cute and funky, though not the most functional. The price, however, is worth noting, because you get 0.09 oz. of product, which makes this one of the most affordable high-end eyeshadows to purchase!

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

You get almost twice as much as most other brands — the eyeshadow is cheaper than MAC by the ounce.

Weight isn’t a concern of me, its the overall price itself sadly. I don’t have the money to be concerned how much I get for my buck but instead how many products my buck can get me.

You can buy the Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow palette where you get 9 Urban decay deluxe eyeshadows (0.03 oz each) for 38 US$. It has also a mini primer potion. I bought this set and the colors are amazing. I love Peace,Scratch and Ransom the most among the shades in this shadow box.

I loovve my deluxe palette! I would definitely suggest buying this over the individuals which come in it. I did pick up the “sting” single from all cosmetics wholesale though, I think for $9.99.

Sephora has exclusively released I think it’s four or five shades, that are so pigmented, it makes MAC look like dollar store cosmetics. When you have a chance, check out the colors, but like I mentioned before, you can only get them at your local Sephora!! :o)

Thanks for doing this. I saw this color and passed because I thought it looked like MAC’s Humid but its sooo different swatched…might have to check it out now!!!

I find the texture of these to be very light & fluffy…hard to explain..but definitely not my favorite texture to work with.

This color is amazing! I use the 24/7 Graffiti pencil as a base to make this color pop. I do have a problem with the top plastic popping off when I try to open it sometimes.

I’ve been looking for a true green. I definitely have to swatch it to see if this is the one. But most my greens are either leaning towards yellow or blue.

This color is in the Urban Decay Deluxe palette, its so pretty and vibrant, I have yet to use it but I’m thinking I will before the week is over with 🙂
