I really went outside my comfort zone trying this new palette from Urban Decay but sometimes you just want a little oomph in your makeup routine. This lovely palette add a bit of sparkle to my makeup world.

What It Does

Take glittery eye looks to a whole new level with eight otherworldly shades of sparkily shadow in Urban Decay’s first-ever Moondust Eyeshadow Palette (Sephora.ca)

Price

$70.00 CAD. I personally think this is pretty expensive for eight shadows that are only 0.02 oz each. With the amount of times I’d probably use this palette, I could have just purchased one or two single glitters.littlebeautyloves-ca_urban-decay_moondust-5
Packaging

Urban Decay really knows how to package shadows and this one is no exception. The outside is silver glitter with a slight rough texture and “Moondust” is cut-out lettering exposing a mirror backdrop. The palette has a strong magnetic closure and houses a large mirror. The palette is only about 4″x 6″ which makes it great for travelling or storing. The pans of glitter pop against the matte black inside.littlebeautyloves-ca_urban-decay_moondust-1

Application

The shadows are really soft and super pigmented. Except for the lightest shade, specter, I only needed to do one finger swipe on my hand to produce clear swatches. I was expecting this to feel gritty and maybe scratchy but it’s nothing like that at all. They apply as easily as you’d expect an Urban Decay shadow to.littlebeautyloves-ca_urban-decay_moondust-6I had a lot of fall-out when applying these eyeshadows. I assumed this would happen so I did apply the shadows before the rest of my makeup. I did have to use a makeup wipe to remove the fall-out though.littlebeautyloves-ca_urban-decay_moondust-3For my look first I used my Naked2 Basics palette to build a base on my eyes then I added some Too Faced Shadow Insurance on top and covered my whole lid with lithium. After, I mixed vega and galaxy and placed that on the center of my lid and finished it off with specter mixed with element on my lower lash line.littlebeautyloves-ca_urban-decay_moondust-2

Wear & Longevity

I love the way these looked on. The look I created is fun but wearable in my opinion. I wore this for about 10 hours and found that it wore off the most on the edges of my eyelid, probably because that’s where I had the least primer, but for the most part it still looked good. The colours did start blending together which I wasn’t too happy with but I think maybe a glitter glue would have helped keep them separated. One thing I was most impressed with is how little fallout I had throughout the day! I was expecting glitter to be everywhere but it actually wasn’t. Of course my primer did help.

The Breakdown:

Pros

  • Variety of shades
  • Easy to wear glitter look
  • Long lasting

Cons

  • Price
  • Fall out with application
  • Colours blended together

My Thoughts

With holidays around the corner, I’m going to try to incorporate more glitter shades and use this palette more because I do like the way it looks on but for the price I think it’s just not worth it because it’s not a palette I would personally use everyday. However,  if you’re a fan of Urban Decay and love collecting their Palette’s I would totally say to get this because the formula of the shadows is fantastic.

What do you think of this palette? Would you get it?

Lots of Love,
