Urban Decay Moondust Palette || Review, Swatches and Tutorial
Say hello to my newest best friend! The Urban Decay Moondust Palette (£35) is one of the most beautiful palettes I own. It is completely different to any eyeshadow palette I already have (you can see my palette collection here) and I absolutely love it.
You get 8 shadows for £35, this is less than the 12 shadows featured in the Naked palettes but when you consider the glitter and pigmentation of these eyeshadows then it's totally worth it. At first I worried that I wouldn't wear several shades but I've owned this for around 2 weeks and I've managed to wear most of them. For me, I tend to wear the glitter shades on top of other less glittery shadows for a more subtle look but then when I really want to make an impact I go all out and rock a couple of glitter shades together.
Specter is a baby pink glitter with silver speckles. I worried I wouldn't wear this but it looks beautiful on the inner corner as a highlight. Moving on to Element which is a burgurndy, burnt reddy orange shade. This looks duochrome and has brown and gold specks running through, this looks nice paired with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Magnetic is the only shade I haven't yet used and it's a deep purple colour, again it has a duochrome finish with blue specks, i'm thinking this will be a good winter shade. The last shade on the top row is lightyear a beautiful green colour. It literally looks like the colour of Buzz Lightyear so the name is very fitting. I love this shade with an orange lipstick, it looks amazing!
The second row starts with Granite which is a silver, grey shade with black undertones. This is a good shade for smoking out an eye look. It's also lovely in the middle of the eye to attract the light. Lithium is a golden glitter with brown and red specks. This is the shade on the outer corner of the eye look above, teamed with Element in the inner corner. Another shade I haven't managed to wear is Vega, it is the most amazing deep blue. I think I need to watch some Youtube tutorials on how to wear this shade as it is very bright for me. The last shade is Galaxy which is a light turquoise colour, probably my favourite from the palette. This has goldy specks running through it and looks amazing when applied wet.
To get the best out of these shadows I tend to apply an eyeshadow primer, a matte transition colour and then a glitter primer (you can see which one I use here). I've tried them both dry and wet and I definitely prefer them wet, they apply better and there is much less fall out. I simply spray my brush with Mac Fix+ and then dab them onto the lids. They last all day and you don't get any irritating fall out as the shadows wear.

  1. The palette looks lovely! When I saw your swatches I thought it looked like there is alot of fallout, I find alot of shadows best when wet. I bet they look amazing when you wet your brush.

    1. Yeah, it depends what look you're going for. If it's just a hint of glitter than dry is fine but if it's a real statement then wet all the way!xo
