Lightbeam

Urban Decay Lightbeam Summer 2018 Eyeshadow Palette ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette exclusively available at Macy’s. I noticed something curious about this palette as listed on the brand’s website, which was that they listed ingredients for two shades as ingredients for past released shades–Solstice for Golden Hour and Riff for Vibe. Sure enough, there’s certainly a lot of similarities between those pairs with Solstice being a richer, more sparkly variation on Golden Hour and Riff just having better quality than Vibe but otherwise seemed quite similar. The palette felt like a rehash of past shades to begin with, so while odd, it wasn’t at all a surprise just how closely they lined up.

Nudie

Nudie is a soft beige with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but would work better over a primer. The consistency was lightly powdery but finely-milled and blendable in practice. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Vibe

Vibe is a medium, golden brown with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. It had medium coverage with a more powdery texture, so it was prone to sheering out without a primer underneath (and then it was, at least, buildable). This shade stayed on for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Ingredients

Talc, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Alumina, Dimethicone, Diisostearyl Malate, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, Polyethylene, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Hexylene Glycol, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate.

Paradox

Paradox is a brighter, medium orange with warm, tangerine shimmer. The eyeshadow had great color coverage in a single layer. The texture was smooth to the touch, soft and blendable but not powdery or prone to fallout. It lasted well for eight hours on me.

Golden Hour

Golden Hour has a dirty, plummy-brown base with blue-to-green shifting sparkle with a more metallic finish overall. It had good coverage, but the color appeared a lot less intense and lighter applied than it did in the pan. It had a dense, smooth texture that had flatter, more fleck-like sparkle than chunky glitter. It wore well for eight hours but had slight fallout over time.
