You Got the Look

Urban Decay You Got the Look Prince Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay You Got the Look Prince Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that releases later this week. For the kind of shades in the palette, it’s a weak offering, which should be more surprising, but Urban Decay’s quality has been inconsistent–often disappointing–so I feel like I’m more affirming what many of us feared. The pigmentation was decent, but there were a few shades that were quite powdery, prone to fallout or sheering out, while wear time, blendability, and ease of use were all generally weaker across the board.

Sexy Dancer

Sexy Dancer is a pale yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, but it was more velvety and substantial, which helped keep the coverage at more semi-opaque to opaque when applied and blended out. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.06 oz. - $316.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high-pigment" with "ultra-smooth color payoff with maximum blendability" while being long-wearing. The brand is confusing, as they claim "up to 12 hours."

The majority of the shades I tested were pigmented--semi-opaque to opaque--with the matte finish having the most variance. The lighter matte shades tended to be thinner, more powdery, and sheerer as a result of those texture differences. The more satin-to-pearl shimmer shades tended to be thinner, too, and they sometimes applied more unevenly or had to be built up. The higher-sheen shimmer shades tended to be pigmented, lightly creamy, and blendable with good adhesion.

They wore between eight and nine hours on average, which is solid wear time but similar to a lot of other powder eyeshadows for me, so it wasn't extra long-wearing in context.

In comparison to the last iteration of the brand's eyeshadow formula, it did not feel vastly different. The mattes seemed a little thinner and a touch more powdery, while the shimmers were a touch thicker on average with some of the more pearl-like finishes having weaker coverage and felt too firmly-pressed into the pan and looked thinner on, so they weren't as flattering to wear.

Crystal Ball

Crystal Ball is a very light gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was buildable if applied with a dampened brush or a fingertip to more opaque coverage. The texture was moderately dense without being overly firm, so it had good adhesion and wasn’t as prone to fallout as it could have been. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Endorphin Machine

Endorphin Machine is a medium, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was firmer and stiffer to work with, so I recommend pushing at the surface to pick up product initially, though it blended out without difficulty. It lasted decently for seven and a half hours on me.

Gett Off

Gett Off is a deep, molten gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was moderately dense but not thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Shockadelica

Shockadelica is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was slightly firmer in the pan, though it wasn’t too difficult to pick up with a brush, and the product applied evenly to bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Groovy Potential

Groovy Potential is a dusty, medium purple base with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of larger, gold sparkle over the top. The flecks were larger, but they were not listed as plastic (PET) glitter, for those curious. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and finely-milled (ignoring the sparkles!), but there was a lot of fallout from the base color as well as the sparkles, which did not adhere/bind with the base. It stayed on for seven hours before fading and had additional fallout over time.

The Artist

The Artist has a blacker purple base with flecks of multi-colored–gold and purple dominated–sparkle over a satin finish. The texture was quite firm and stiff, which made it difficult to work with, even using a fingertip or a dampened brush. I’d recommend using a jabbing motion to dislodge product from the surface, but take care to clean-up fallout. It had more medium to semi-opaque coverage at best, which I could only build up using a primer underneath. This shade showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Love 2 the 9s

Love 2 the 9s is a soft, light-medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt very smooth and silky with ight powderiness that was more noticeable in the pan than on the lid, as long as I tapped off excess prior to applying and blending the product out. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Bold Generation

Bold Generation is a dark, charcoal gray with cool undertones and silver micro-sparkle. It seemed to have a more metallic finish, but the shimmer didn’t bind with the base powder as much so it had moderate fallout during application and blending, which left the finish looking less intense. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for seven hours before fading a bit.

So Dark

So Dark is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with a second layer.

Better than Let’s Go Crazy, but still a testament to how far Urban Decay has fallen. I’m just very sad about this entire collection. First, because His Royal Purpleness wouldn’t have ever agreed to this, especially with UD (although possibly with Mother Pat?). Secondly, the quality is, for the most part, unbearably terrible.

Hey girl hey! I still read but I don’t think I’ve left a comment in 5,000 years. I’m actually downloading the files to my computer for my review of this collection as I type this! My review is very different than yours but I went in a different direction. I actually think they did a good job here and I’m still excited by the collection. It’s nice to see your review though! I’m glad you posted about it! BIG HUGS! Been thinking about you this year but I haven’t reached out when I should have and that’s on me. I have had difficulty talking to anyone this year. It’s been a year. HUGS HUGS HUGS.

How crazy is it that a “B” rating is an improvement! Still, I’m glad because I might want to purchase at some point if only because of Prince.

I mean, if UD wants to keep sliding into meh or even worse, awful, they saw what happened to Becca. And Becca had only a few missteps; the majority of the brand was solid.

Consumers won’t take pretty chalk anymore. We know what works and what doesn’t, and we know UD is capable of true greatness, but they don’t bring it anymore. Maybe great formulations are no longer as profitable to UD and they can save their coin with weaker formulations. Either way, I think I’m done purchasing from UD for a good, long while. At least until they can PROVE that they still can deliver great products.

Sad. UD used to be quite reliable once upon a time.
I think they should have made some nice lipsticks, at least most of their lipsticks seems to be of a good quality, at least the ones I have are.

The lipsticks are all on sale on Sephora and their website so looks like they are going to be discontinued and reformulated… yet again.

Hahaha!
I like the old Revolution formula better then the vice one, I never understood why brands fix what’s not broken.
I do hope they will leave the lipsticks as is, but I’d not be surprised it they come up with something new and worse.

Usable. But is that really the standard for a Prince collab? You can tell nobody on either side gave a shit about making a truly inspired quality product.

Urban Decay: “Hey, let’s fail at making a single decent purple in a collection for someone synonymous with the color!”

You know there’s a big problem when the reviewer suggests “using a jabbing motion to dislodge product” because it’s pressed so hard. if I have to stab my palette with a brush to get product out: that’s a big no.
