Urban Decay Snatch EyeshadowUrban Decay Snatch Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pale peach shimmer with gold glitter.” It’s a warm-toned, peachy-pink with gold glitter and a frosted finish. Flower Beauty Foxy Browns #1 is lighter and less frosted. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle is slightly less pink and has no glitter. Urban Decay Scratch is a touch warmer, slightly darker.

There are a lot of things to love about Snatch, but long-time readers likely know that the micro-glitter is the one aspect of this eyeshadow that brings it down a notch.  I love glitter, but it has to stick if it’s going to be put into a product like this.  Or else the brand needs to fess up and tell us it needs to be used with XYZ product to make the glitter stay put (rather than saying it won’t fall out on its own).  The little glittery bits in this eyeshadow do fall out both during application and later on during wear.  It’s not full of glitter, so it’s a more manageable quantity, and it’s slight enough that I’d still wear this eyeshadow and not worry much over it.  It is, though, annoying.  The underlying color is rich in color, buttery and smooth in texture.  It applies smoothly, evenly, and stays on for the nine hours I tested it without fading or creasing.

Nice color, but I wish they had a glitter-free version. Most of my makeup is for the office, so a club look is definitely not what I’m looking for.

Glitter will ALWAYS cause fall out. No way around it without specific products. That’s the nature of glitter! We have SO many primers for glitter products, go invest in one. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue to keep my *really* glittery eyeshadows in place and it works. It keeps cosmetic glitter in place too! One method I used to remove the chunky glitter of glitter eyeshadow after I apply it is sweep a clean brush over it, brushing off the glitter carefully while leaving the base color intact. Applying foundation after can also help since the glitter won’t have something to stick to. Aside from that rant, Snatch is a pretty shade. I swatched it once before the reformulation.

Hi Danii!

I understand what you’re saying, and I’m not sure if you missed this part of my review: “I love glitter, but it has to stick if it’s going to be put into a product like this. Or else the brand needs to fess up and tell us it needs to be used with XYZ product to make the glitter stay put (rather than saying it won’t fall out on its own). ” My issue is Urban Decay says no fall out, and it’s just not true.

I absolutely HATE all Urban Decay’s regular eyeshadows with glitter, and they do that with the most beautiful colors, like Sidecar (Naked Palette), Maui Wowie, URB, Minx.. I LOVE the colors, they are amazing, but I never use them, because of the mess/fallout of glitter. Sad.
