Urban Decay Liquid MOONDUST Eyeshadow Review & Swatches
Last review of 2016 and it's a fitting one for NYE! Can’t get enough of Moondust, planet Earth’s sparkliest shadow? Brace yourself, because now there’s a whole new way to satisfy your sparkle addiction. Introducing Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow, a super-versatile cream version of the innovative formula you know and love.
Like UD's pressed Moondust shadows, Liquid Moondust contains microfine bits of iridescent sparkle and lush 3-D metallics—for a gorgeous, diamond-like effect. Create subtler looks or layer and build the formula for more intense 3-D metallic effects. For all-over sparkle, lay the color down quickly and blend it out.
The space nerd in me loves this packaging. It almost glows when the light hits the holographic parts.
When I was swatching these it was so weird. Some went on so smooth with intense pigmentation, while others came out watery with uneven color and glitter. I tried shaking the tube, same result. They seem to be inconsistent depending on the shade you get. I had the best results with Spacetime, Zap, and Zodiac. However, after reading up more about them I discovered some are actually meant to be sheer and not full coverage so this isn't a blunder in the formula it's how they are supposed to be.
I really like the concept of the Liquid Moondusts. I despise getting glitter everywhere and I think they would work out brilliantly for those with sensitive eyes. Being past my days of wearing glitter eyeshadow these are a sophisticated way to wear sparkle with out it looking too garish or immature.
These glimmering shadows are a delightful way to dress up the eyes. I will be sporting a couple of these on my eyes tonight! Happy New Years!
Urban Decay Liquid Moondust ($22) available at urbandecay.com, SEPHORA, ulta, & macys.
