Hi Everyone,

Today I’m going to review 4 eyeshadows from Urban decay’s permanent line. If you are someone like me who adores neutrals more than colorful eyeshadows, this post is totally for you!


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Insane color payout. A velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. Our mind-blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades. 
THE FORMULA
• Soft, amazingly velvety texture
• Rich, dense and decadent color
• Smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability
• Long-lasting, crease-free wear

The secret to the new formula is our Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

This amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Have you ever had trouble blending a black or purple shade? How about a matte? Every Urban Decay shade goes on silky, blends easily and stays put.

Price : $ 19 each

The Urban Decay Eyeshadows come in a sturdy flip top silver case. There is neither an applicator nor a mirror in the casing which is okay by me. One can also depot the eyeshadows in a Z-palette as per their convenience.

Urban decay eyeshadows are one of the smoothest and creamiest eyeshadows you would come across. There might be a little difference in the way they feel and blend on the lids depending upon the shade. Today I have 4 shades from the permanent line to review namely Half Baked, Smog, YDK and Twice Baked. All the 4 shades can be safely put in the neutral category and are great to add in your collection if you’re fond of neutral eyeshadows.
Urban Decay Half Baked can be described as a golden bronze with a metallic frost finish. The eyeshadow is extremely smooth, almost creamy, and is high on pigmentation. Urban Decay eyeshadows can be used both wet and dry. When used wet, the intensity is magnified and it gives a nice foiled finish on the lids. It blends beautifully and lasts well over 8 hours. Adding an eyeshadow primer adds to the lasting ability.
Urban Decay Smog is a deep metallic brown with a rich sheen. The color is warm and is a great shade to create daytime smokey eyes. It is smooth, though not as creamy as Half Baked. It blends equally well though. It lasts for an entire day and retains intensity until the end of its wear time.
Urban Decay YDK is a metallic bronze with a frosted metallic sheen. It is quite similar to sidecar from the Naked Palette. YDK is extremely soft to touch and almost crumbly when applied. It is best suited for a wet application in my opinion. It lasts over 8 to 9 hours and more. The metallic sheen is intensifies over the Urban Decay Primer Potion and when used with a damp brush.
Urban Decay Twice Baked is a medium chocolate brown with gold shimmer. It is not as smooth as the other eyeshadows mentioned in this post and infact, has a slightly dry and stiff texture. It was hard to layer and the color didn’t come out as it looked in the pan. However, it was easy to blend and the shimmer didn’t feel too coarse or glittery. The eyeshadow lasts as long as 8-10 hours.

    I am in love with these gorgeous shades and I love products with double benefit, like using an eyeshadow as highlighter!! Wonderful review :)

      Hey Charu, thanks for dropping by. I reckon the same, and especially half baked is a great highlighting shade if used wisely since it is so intensely pigmented. :)
