Hi there! Urban Decay Cosmetics has created eight shades of their liquid form Moondust shadows. The Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows contain micro fine bits of iridescent sparkle and 3-D metallics that promise a gorgeous, diamond-like effect. Versatile in use atop regular shadow, layered for a more metallic look, or added sparkle for an amazing wing – these Liquid Moondust shadows are no joke! You will be seeing swatches of the Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows in Solstice, Vega, Spacetime, Zodiac, Zap, Recharged, Chem Trail, and Magnetic with a simple look using the shade in Recharged shortly.
Here is a breakdown of the eyeshadow shades:

In the above photos I used some of the UD Ultimate Basics shadows that I am currently testing out (and loving!). I applied a single layer of Recharged on my lid and blended with a crease brush for a more sheer/daytime look before the liquid eyeshadow dried. I must mention that these liquid shadows separate and may become clumpy if they are not shaken really well before use. If you decide to purchase and notice that the product is clumpy – do not fret. Shake the product as you would nail polish (between the hands and roll, and again holding the product with one hand and hitting it against your other hand) and everything will apply as it should. The Moondust eyeshadow dried well, did not crease, and had lasted five hours before I washed it off. It may have lasted awhile longer, but I need to sleep! The gel liner I am using is from Inglot in number 77.
First Impressions: I think that the liquid form is much less messier and a lot more brighter compared to the eyeshadow pans. It may seem tricky at first use but when the look comes together so does the sparkle. I plan on using the darker shades with similar colored shadows for added glam. I recommend starting off with the lighter shades like Chem Trail before trying the darker shades as I think that it can be used more universally with other shadows and/or looks.
Much love, Gigi
