Review: Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether, Works Better Wet!

Sparkly sparkle, let all the glitter dust makes it magic to set glamour and elegance to the scene. This is what came into my mind about Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether

‘Moondust Eyeshadow is infused with a delicate, microfine sparkle and gorgeous 3-D pearls—for a
glistening, iridescent effect and amazing flashes of multidimensional sparkle. We recommend applying
Moondust with your fingers. For extra intense color payout, apply it with a wet finger or brush dipped in water, then blend out the edges with a dry brush.

MOONDUST EYESHADOW IS AVAILABLE IN FOUR NEW SHADES:
ETHER – light purple with pink-blue 3-D sparkle and shift
SCORPIO – matte black with gold 3-D sparkle
SOLSTICE – metallic pink-red with green 3-D sparkle and shift
COSMIC – metallic white with iridescent 3-D sparkle and shift’

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Shade

The shade that I have is called Ether , a light purple shade with pink and blue 3D sparkle and lift. As this shade is labelled on the box, the sticker does reflect the shade of the eye shadow.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Ingredients

From the ingredients listing, I could see there is talc and silica. I have no issue with these ingredient but just to highlight, if you are ingredients sensitive.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Front & Back

This eye shadow comes in a single eye shadow pot of pearlescent faint blue with transparent lid embossed with UD in the middle. The transparent lid allows ones to shade and texture of the eye shadow.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Texture

On the closer look, the texture seems gritty and what I’m worried of is will it go smooth on my eyelids as well as how much of fall outs will it be.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Removable Pan

This eye shadow pot was also designed to be able to remove from it’s casing and to be placed into your Urban Decay customized ‘build your own palette’.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Swatches

Let’s have a look over the swatch. You can definitely tell this is a heavily pigmented in purple with glitters of pink and blue. Though it seems gritty but from the swatch using my fingers, I could almost barely feel them. It’s like soft flakes that I have touched and I have created two looks using this eye shadow.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether How To Dry Application

Understand that it’s recommended to use finger for the best result but that doesn’t mean I could not use an eye shadow brush right? I’m so used to using makeup brushes and I hardly use fingers now unless I don’t have any brushes with me at all.

The first look is to dab the eye shadow on the eyelid and dab until to the desired opacity. Blend well after and it creates an iridescent beautiful sparkles around the eyes. This is the dry application technique.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Look 1

Finish off with eye liner and mascara. This look goes well for both day and night.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether How To Wet Application

Second look here is to create bold eye liner out of it. Using synthetic brush and dip into some water then the eye shadow. This is called wet application technique. Start lining on the lash line thicker than how we usually apply eye liner. Complete the line with a wing at the corner and half way to the lower lash to balance out the look. Finish off with eye liner with similar length of the eye shadow and apply mascara to boost those lashes up.

Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Ether Look 2

This look brings the edginess, elegance and glamour.

Above all…

I love this eye shadow where it gives a very beautiful sparkle. At first I lost interest with the eye shadow from the dry application because the color pay off wasn’t as good from the swatch but once I did the wet application technique, I’m in love.

For dry application, there is fall outs and it isn’t obvious for me because my lashes caught most of it. You could actually see it on the image where I show steps to apply for dry technique. I have no issues with the wet application at all, it goes on smoothly without fuss. Throughout the day, the glitter does move around  to the crease from blinking which is not an issue because it is still pretty. In conclusion, it would be best to apply this eye shadow with finger or using wet application technique.

Price: MYR72.00

Weight: 1.5grams / 0.05 oz.

Availability: Sephora nationwide

PROs:

  • Great color payoff
  • Beautiful sparkle
  • Smooth application

CONs:

  • Fall outs

My Rating: 4.6/5

Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, Bigger, Blacker, Badder Lashes

My lashes can never get enough of mascara. At this point of time, whenever I want my lashes to get done, I want them to get done quick and effortless given that I have such limited time.  With this, I have tried Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and couldn’t get enough of it.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

‘Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Our formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. We emblazoned our gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple “Perversion” and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”’

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Wand

This type of brush are usually great for volumizing as they are able to coat every lashes with the product formula more evenly to build more body for each lashes.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara How To

To use this mascara isn’t difficult at all, just remember to wiggle it all the way throughout the application. I would always use the brush tip to reach out lashes at the corner of my eyes. I enjoyed layering using this mascara as it doesn’t clump my lashes at all and the volume is buildable from the layering.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Before & After

A before and after and yes, no lash curler was used at all. See the difference of my lashes after having the mascara on? They are so much more lifted.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), Synthetic Beeswax, Acacia Senegal Gum, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (Cera Carnauba/Cire de Carnuba), Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, Polybutene, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Pentylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Potassium Sorbate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Soluble Collagen, Myristic Acid, Arachidic Acid, Behenic Acid, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Oleic Acid, Mel (Honey/Miel) Extract, Sodium PCA,Hydrolyzed Elastin, Glycogen, Serine. [+/- (May Contain/Peut contenir): CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)].

Above all…

I love the fact that this mascara doesn’t clump my lashes after numbers of layering and once it dries, the mascara doesn’t harden my lashes at all. It did take sometime for me to apply the mascara when I wanted much more dramatic lashes but the results are worthy. My lashes were lifted so well that I didn’t even need to use lash curler at all. It didn’t smudge on me after more than 9 hours of wearing, however, it can be quite tricky with removing it depending on the strength of your makeup remover.

Price: MYR90

Availability: Sephora nationwide

PROs:

  • Does not clump lashes after layering
  • Buildable volume to dramatic
  • Lifts lashes very much
  • Doesn’t harden lashes
  • Didn’t smudge after 9 hours

CONs:

  • Can be tricky when removing it

My Rating: 4.8/5

Review: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Liar & Sheer Anarchy, Buttery Smooth & Great Opacity Than Sheer Formula

Introducing Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks where they available in ten shades, each one has a rich, creamy feel and a gorgeous, high-shine finish. Let’s find out more and I am sharing two of the shades of the lipsticks.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

‘Sheer Revolution Lipstick shades are inspired by the best of our Revolution Lipstick lineup. We’re  currently obsessed with Sheer Shame (a shade that even women intimidated by the original will love) and Sheer Slowburn (a really flattering color that’s the lovechild of F-Bomb (red) and Bang (orange)). We also love Sheer Liar, a great nude that looks amazing on any skin tone.

Sheer Revolution Lipstick comes in our cool, custom-designed lipstick component. To set this sheer formula apart, we made the case light purple (instead of gunmetal like our traditional Revolution Lipstick case).

Organically shaped facets make the case feel amazing in your hand; “Urban Decay” is debossed on the side of the lid, with “UD” debossed on the top of the cap. Unlike a traditional bullet, the trimline-style component supports the soft, creamy formula and prevents breakage and gives full-lip coverage in a single swipe (unlike the dinky application of a slimline component).

Our Pigment Infusion System™ gives Sheer Revolution Lipstick its super creamy texture, superior color dispersion and extended wear. We laced the formula with Maxi-Lip™ (which defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller), along with a nourishing blend of oils and antioxidants. Shea butter and jojoba, olive and babassu oils moisturize and condition, while vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants.’

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks in Sheer Liar

The case made it looks different from other lipsticks from it’s shape embossed with Urban Decay initials and full name over the lid. First shade that I tested out is Sheer Liar which I thought from the first look, it could be one of the wearable mauve shade.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar Swatch

As Urban Decay would define it as a nude shade for any skin tones, I would still think that this is a pretty mauve shade as it carries pink and brown undertone. A perfect shade for everyday wear. From the swatch, I could tell where the shade is definitely tanner than my skin, therefore it’s hard to perceive it as nude shade for any skin tone.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar Ingredients

Here would be the list of ingredients for Sheer Liar.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar How To

It glides so easily upon application. It felt buttery smooth, moisturizing and beautiful color payoff despite of it’s formula.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar Before & After

 Here is a before and after applying the lipstick. I love this shade!

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar - Traclyn Yeoh

Here is how it looks on me and I do notice that it gives a high-shine over my lips like a lip gloss.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks in Sheer Anarchy

Sheer Anarchy is quite a contra to Sheer Liar, a bright pink shade that unleashes the boldness and edginess out of you.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy Swatch

As bright as it is, this shade carries blue undertone to it which makes it a cooler tone. This means it will give an illusion of brighter teeth. Sheer Anarchy is a shade you would want to wear when you are wearing less eye makeup or feel very much alive and wants to look much different.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy Ingredients

Here’s the ingredients listing for Sheer Anarchy.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy How To

Buttery smooth application, just like how it works like Sheer Liar. Because the shade is bright and bold, you want to apply this lipstick with precise application and this could be tricky with this lipstick. Due to the rounded tip from the lipstick bullet, it will be fine if you have rounded lips and it would be challenging if you have sharper edges on the lips. You may need to use a lip brush to achieve it.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy Before & After

Before and after shows a big color pay off difference with great shine.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy - Traclyn

Sheer Anarchy is bold, bright and brings the edginess out of me. Beautiful.

Above all…

I love these lipsticks though they have claimed they are sheer in formula but they are way more opaque than I expected. They are buttery smooth, creamy and finishes off in high shine just like a lip gloss.  It is light weight, I could barely feel like I am wearing anything. Unfortunately, it transfers easily over drinking water and reapply is needed at most times. Definitely will need to be careful if you happened to be in contact of yours or someone else’s clothes and kissing your beloved ones.

Price: MYR85

Availability: Sephora stores nationwide

Share your love with Sephora Malaysia and like them to receive the latest beauty buzz in town!

PROs:

  • Great opacity than sheer formula
  • Buttery smooth
  • Creamy
  • High shines like a lip gloss
  • Light weight

CONs:

  • Easily transfers
  • Frequent reapplication

My Rating: 4.5/5
