Being a makeup artist and junkie I have tons of various eyeshadows from many brands. While I have a few urban decay they are not amongst my top brand. The pigment is good (but so are other brands) and the color is not easily blendable. Not to mention all of the glitter in most of their shades. Great for a teenager who don't use many colors on their eyelids and are fascinated by all that glitters. but i find that UD is pretty much a teenage line...nothing worn by adults.
I own this color in the individual packaging and in the Naked palette, but I find that my individual has more of a sand color while the palette has more of a pink shade...but I love this color! It gives my eyelids a nice sheen and is very natural. By far my most favorite Urban Decay eye shadow ever.
Purple haze is great. A muted purple that isn't too in your face. Great for daytime or night looks, or just lazy "through it on and walk out the door" looks. Either way it's stunning. If you're into purple, I'd say pick this color up. And you can't beat the cute packaging, either.
All of the UD shadows are pigmented and beautiful! They are GREAT on there own but with UD shadow primer, these will last until YOU DECIDE TO TAKE IT OFF! Most of the colors look amazing on any skin type or color. They are a little pricy, but a definite great buy!
WOW. these eyshadows are just phenomenal! super pigmented and very blendable! the color payoff is just, amazing! would buy every single one of these if i could! very recommend! (:
I got my eyeshadow in Sin from MyGlam Bag. Before receiving my bag I didn't know how big the eyeshadow would be. It ended up being full size at a $16 value, I spent $10 on the MyGlam Bag. That is a plus! (I'd also like to include that I am no longer subscribed to MyGlam due to personal reasons...)
Anyways (now that you know I didn't pay full price for this product), I find Sin is too shimmery to use as a browbone highlight, for my personal preference. I enjoy using it in the center of my lid to make my eyes appear larger, or in the inner corner which brightens any eye makeup look! Great staying power as well, better than any other drugstore "inner corner" eyeshadows that I have tried :)
I bought their Ammo eye palette some time last year, and I love it! I use about 3 or 4 of the more neutral colors daily, and I still have plenty left. I use Sin with many of the combinations to either highlight or to tone down/blend a darker color if I've gotten carried away. It's very versatile! I can also use it as an allover lid cover if I'm wanting a minimal makeup day. Even then, it's very pretty and natural. It has enough shimmer to make my eyes pop without being too glittery for daytime looks. I guess it doesn't look as impressive as some of the other flashy colors, but I think it's a must have for anyone's shadow collection.
