I love Urban Decay eyeshadows and I have been a faithful buyer of almost every palette that has ever come out. They are always so pigmented and look really nice. This summer I decided to buy the new Moondust palette ($49) and I was pretty excited to try these glittery colours.
The palette is true to its name and gives off a deep-space intergalactic chic vibe. The cover of the palette also looks very unique and futuristic which I love.
Now on to the actual colours….I don’t like them. Oops.
Unfortunately they do not give off a very finished looked when applied. It honestly looks like cheap glitter eyeshadow that I can buy in a drug store. Although the shadows appear bright in the container, they are actually really dull. It is also not pigmented so I have to apply the shadow multiple times to get my desired look. There is also a lot of fall out so after you apply this eyeshadow you will end up with 10 tonnes of glitter on your face.
Maybe its because I’m dark-skinned or its just not that good. I’m just disappointed in the quality of these shadows. For $49 I would expect to have a large variety of colours (which it’s lacking) and high quality shadows (which it’s also lacking). About 3 of the shadows just appear grey. Bleh!
Sadly I’m going to pass this eyeshadow down to my mother. I don’t think it’s worth the buy.
What do you think about this palette? Do you hate it or love it?
