Party Favor

Urban Decay Party Favor Moondust Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.102 oz.) is a limited edition palette that debuted late in the holiday season (but is still available). It includes six new, exclusive Moondust shades, which is the brand’s more sparkly eyeshadow formula (and these do not contain any plastic glitter). For someone looking for sparkling, pigmented, and foolproof shades, I don’t think this is it, but for someone who loves sparkly, layering shades or lid shades, it would perform well for those purposes.

The texture can be a little drier to the touch, but they pack on well with fingertips or a dampened brush. The brand actually lists application with fingertip followed by applying wet for an intensified look, so pigmentation and application ratings are based on those two application methods but I have included information about dry brush application, too.

These kind of products definitely look better in person as they are more flake-like in their sparkle/shimmer and reflect light well but often look textured/patchy in a still photo (when the light isn’t reflecting), especially with deeper shades. I thought everything was fairly well-blended and smooth in person, but the photos told a totally different story. If you typically wear your shimmer shades on the lid, then I suspect the palette will work well for that purpose (sparkling, shimmery lid shades).

Neon Moon

Neon Moon is a sparkling, light champagne gold with moderate, warm undertones and a shiny, sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, more semi-opaque to opaque (more from shimmer/sparkle than a base color) coverage when applied with a fingertips and a dampened brush respectively (the latter two methods being as recommended by the brand). The texture was smooth with moderate slip but didn’t feel wet to the touch, so it applied without fallout and sat evenly on my skin. There was very slight fallout apparent after eight hours of wear.

Sugar High

Sugar High is a light, silvery white with flecks of pink and silver sparkle paired with a high-shine, metallic finish. It had sheer coverage applied with a dry brush, semi-sheer coverage applied with a fingertip, and semi-opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly emollient texture that was thin and wasn’t prone to fallout during application and blending. It stayed on well for eight hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

No Shame

No Shame is a medium gold base with warmer, yellow undertones and multi-colored flecks of sparkle. It had sheer coverage applied with a dry brush, medium coverage applied with a fingertip, and semi-opaque (more buildable) coverage applied with a dampened brush. You can see how when the light catches the sparkles (angled swatch), it ended up looking nearly opaque in coverage.

The texture was smooth to the touch, emollient but not actually wet, and it was thin, so it was smooth and even when applied to bare skin. It wasn’t prone to fallout during application, and there was only a bit of it after eight hours of wear.

Spaced

Spaced is a light, golden taupe with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of multi-colored sparkle over a shiny, metallic finish. It had medium coverage applied with a dry brush, semi-opaque and buildable coverage applied with fingertips, and opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The consistency was smooth, emollient without being too dense or too wet, and it applied evenly to bare skin without fallout. It wore well for eight hours with a touch of fallout over time.

Long Night

Long Night is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry, with fingertips, and with a dampened brush (which was slightly more intense but not quite opaque). When diffused, it was more prone to looking somewhat patchy as the base color wasn’t as strong so the darker bits of sparkle came forward and looked more speckled on–it wasn’t as noticeable in person as the light reflected constantly from the shiny, sparkling finish. (It didn’t appear that patchy to me in person.)

I’d recommend wearing this all over the lid and using something more matte in the crease to avoid the patchy edge (which is where the eyeshadow is more likely to be worn given that matte finishes are more typical for crease shades anyway). There was slight fallout during application as well as over the eight hours it lasted for.

Powder Trip

Powder Trip is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque coverage applied dry, with fingertips, or with a dampened brush, though the latter yielded the most intense, high-shine finish of the three methods.

The texture had a smooth, lightly emollient feel to it, so it actually was a thinner powder and wasn’t prone to emphasizing my natural skin texture. The downside was that while it had quite a bit of pigmentation, the base color was less spreadable compared to the shimmer/sparkle. The result of that was a patchier edge in photos due to the light not catching all the sparkles, though I honestly didn’t realize how patchy it was in person because of the way the light bounces off the finish (truly a product infinitely better in person).

These are nice for people who don’t mind the extra work to prevent fallout, but unless I’m at a party, I don’t want sparkles randomly all around my face. I have two singles of the Moondust formula and while I do like them, I find that I rarely use them. I wish the beauty industry could create a sparkly formula that doesn’t have fallout.

I love this palette – I think the shades have been well chosen and they can certainly be used with other palettes. I only wish that there was a little less sparkle, which made the application trickier (ie using a dampened brush or fingertips). I would have preferred a shimmery finish – the kind that UD can do so well.
Anyway – this is lovely and your eye look is beautiful Christine.

Adding those white dots on the packaging will make all that fallout seem just… natural. Guess that’s smart packaging. πŸ˜€

Meh… to me these shades look too similar to each other…
I actually am an avid user of a sparkly lid shade, but I would not need all 6 of these. I’d use one at a time, and used alone I guess they’d look pretty much the same… (except the 2 darker ones, but I would not know what to do with shades that are this dark AND this shiny)
I used to be a die-hard UD fan but I have not been thrilled by a release in a long time πŸ™ either the color story is plain, or they fail to deliver on quality; this makes me so sad!
