THE FORMULA: Even softer, amazingly velvety texture. Richer, more dense and decadent color. Smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability.Longer-lasting, more crease-free wear. The secret to the new formula is 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 color payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And 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 is silky, blendable, and stays put.
I have tried so many eyeshadows,and these are no question the best!!The pigmentation of these shadows are ridiculous and the texture is fantastic! They are very pricey,but they are worth the extra money!!If you buy an Urban decay eyeshadow,you won't regret it!
Rockstar is a great, versatile shade. It's a gorgeous, rich mauvey-plum. It goes on great, and isn't stiff or difficult to blend. There's no shimmer/glitter, but there's a velvety aspect that keeps it from being a dull matte. The wear is good (6 hours with some fading) but not great. Purple shadow gets a bad rap in the cosmetic industry, because the pigment is generally difficult to work with. However, Rockstar is smooth, buttery, and bold, which is great, because I love to wear purple. Def repurchase!
I'm in LOVE with this shade. It's a beautiful champagne gold with silver glitter. It's a multi-tasker, to. It looks beautiful on the lid, but I love it as a tear duct highlight as well. It goes on opaquely with a great metallic, foiled effect, even when dry and without primer. The glitter wasn't gritty, but without primer, there was a moderate amount of fallout (primer resolves this). Without a base, this wore excellently for more than 8 hours. With a base, it made it to the 15 hour mark looking flawless, with no fallout. I'm so glad this shadow didn't get discontinued, and would gladly repurchase.

Haight is a shimmery blue-teal with a silver sheen. The color goes on opaquely with or without primer. If a base is used, the green in the teal is brought out more. It's more complex than it looks in the pan! With primer, the shade lasts 10 hours nonstop. Without, it looks noticeably faded at around 6 hours. Blue can be an intimidating color, but Haight is so versatile and wearable (it's softer without a base, bold and loud with one). Love!

I am obsessed with urban decay's eyeshadow. They are very pigmented alone but with the primer potion it stands out. (this is where blending is the key!) but they have mainly shimmers and barely any mattes. But would i recommend? most definitely.
The texture of this eyeshadow is smooth, and very pigmented. I saw this shade while at my local Sephora and once I swatched it, I knew it would be perfect. Normally, I write very lengthy reviews for products I love, but in this case, all I can say is that it is simply amazing.
