Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow, for the love of glitter! Review and swatches of my picks.

Hello everyone! How was everyone’s long weekend? I rested lots and recharged my batteries and I hope you did too. Some days ago, I wore a make-up look that not only lasted all day, but was thoroughly enjoyable in its spring-like vibrancy! I wanted to share this with you and also review the products I used. You see, recently I rediscovered glitter with the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow! And if you are a fan of glitter, you should definitely check this product out!

The Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow is housed in a transparent, tube container and there is a brush which you can use to apply the product on your lids. Each tube contains 5 ml of product which is very good. The fact that the tube is transparent allows you to see the real colour of the liquid eyeshadow although you really need to swatch these to appreciate the complexity of the glitter.

The Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow comes in six different shades (have a look here), and I have two of these to show you today: Solstice and Playtime.

Playtime is a cool-toned brown with gold glitter and Solstice is a very particular warm shade. It’s almost berry brown, with blue, silver and gold glitter. These are both gorgeous shades. The Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow can be used in very many different ways: on its own as a wash of colour all over the lid, combined with other Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadows, as a base for powder eyeshadows (the powder clings onto their liquid form and thus becomes more long-lasting and creaseproof) or on top of other liquid or powder eyeshadows for a pop of glow.

I created a look where I combined Solstice and Playtime and I was really happy with the effect:

And that’s with the eyes closed. Solstice in in the inner 1/3 of my eye and Playtime is in the outer 2/3 of it

The Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow is very long-lasting. I wore no primer underneath Solstice and Playtime and they lasted for around 8 hours with no creasing and minimal fading towards the end of the day. Performance-wise, I have no complaints. They are mousse-like, liquid eyeshadows that blend very easily but also set quickly, so you need to be speedy and precise with application. If you place these where you want them, blend the edges, then layer more on top as needed for the intensity you want and wait for 60 seconds for them to set completely, you should be more than fine!

Liquid eyeshadows like the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow normally give you best colour payoff when patted into place. If you try to drag these with your brush, you might end up with mostly glitter on your lids. Also, be careful not to overblend. Place them on your lid, blend the edges lightly and you’re done for the day!

Here is the eye look in context:

As for the rest of my make up, my base is the Clinique BYI Pigment Drops (reviewed here) and I’m wearing the Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip in Havana Coral (which I’ve ended up loving). I’m also wearing the new Marc Jacobs Coconut Bronzer and Highlighter (review here).

I really loved this eye look. I tightline my lower lash line and the brightness of the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow on my upper lid gave more light and a pop of colour which was discreet, but, in my view impactful. May I add, there was *no* fall out. At all. Considering that these are glitter eyeshadows, you’d expect even a little but not the case here! No fall out upon application and no transfer of glitter throughout the day either! Win, win, win!

The Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow retails for 15.50 GBP and can be purchased at your local Urban Decay counter or online from Urban Decay or John Lewis.

Have you tried any of these eyeshadows? Do you like wearing glitter on your eyelids?

Hope you have a lovely start of the week and speak to you soon!
