Review: Urban Decay Sustainble Shadow Box
descriptions from UD website):
YDK - bronzed mocha w/ golden microglitter. This is a smooth lovely brown shade, I wear this one often.
Flipside - electric teal w/ blue sheen. Smooth as well, pretty colour, but I don't see myself wearing this often.
Twice Baked - brownie brown w/ gold glitter. I like this colour a lot, there are glitters in the pan, but when swatched they disappear.
Flash - bright iridescent purple, a very unique purple with a blue sheen.
Kiddie Pool - ocean blue w/ iridescent glitter, I love the colour of this one, very unique as well, glitter is more of a shimmer in this one and the shimmer is different colours too, kinda cool.
Half Baked - subtle, lustrous bronze, beautiful gold smooth shadow. Love this one too.
Grifter - sheer lavender w/ lots of silver microglitter. Very pretty shade if it wasn't loaded with silver glitter.
UZI - metallic silver w/ big iridescent sparkles. Another terrible fallout one, the most fallout one of the bunch here, glitter is BIG too!
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again - golden beige w/ bronze, gold & silver glitter, aka the worst shadow I have ever dealt with, this is major, major fallout. The colour is gorgeous, but it's very gritty and thick and just crumbles everywhere.
Oil Slick - black with silver glitter, a black with not so great pigmentation and lots of silver glitterly mess, pass!
I would say that 4/10 of these shadows are NOT wearable whatsoever. But MCRA is definitely a total miss in this palette. The ones that I do like, I like a lot. Would I buy this again? No, cause I would never get through these shadows, the size that you get is totally enough.
