Urban Decay Zodiac Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “smoky black with blue-green shift and blue-green 3-D sparkle.” It’s a rich, darkened forest green with green and green-teal sparkle and shimmer over a blackened-brown base. L’Oreal Golden Emerald is lighter, warmer. MAC Smutty Green is darker, less sparkly. Inglot #414 is more teal.

Of the six shades I’ve swatched, Zodiac is the most nuanced as it has more color shift (almost like a duochrome). Applied dry, it had decent color payoff, but it is definitely more intense when applied with a damp brush–then the blackened base darkens and the finish turns smoother, more metallic, and the green becomes more pronounced. The texture feels almost wet, but it’s very smooth, fine, and thin. It applies well to the lid, and it is easy to blend out, but there is fall out during application and later on while it is worn. The eyeshadow lasted without fading or creasing over eight hours on the lid. For a comparison to Stardusts, read this post.

WHY is this $20? Urban Decay knows well that fallout is everyone’s least favorite aspect of their shadows–I feel like that was a major motivator for them reformulating their shadows.
And then this?
I really LIKE this shade. I think it would be beautiful duochrome without the glitter. But fallout is such a dealbreaker for me.

I can’t wait to see this in person. I have a feeling this particular shade is actually more complex in real-life than in photos…

If you wear a tacky base, it should minimize fall out. Urban Decay’s Primer Potion will do nothing for fall out – it has no tackiness so it doesn’t help in that area.

I can see in your picture on your eye zodiac’s green and yellow kind of glitter shows pretty ok, but that may have something to do with the fact the camera is focused on your eye. but when i saw the eyeshadow on wendy the founder of ud it just looked like a black based silver glitter eyeshadow. would you say anyone could see the color of the multidimensional shadow/ glitter on your lid or does it lose it’s “flavor” once you apply it?
