Urban Decay | Moondust Eyeshadow Palette

UD Moondust Palette opener


As Frankie said, “fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars … ” 

Totally on trend with all things sparkly and magically delicious, Urban Decay has just launched the Moondust Eyeshadow Palette, consisting of eight vibrant shades that will rocket your look into orbit faster than you can say “blast off”.

Ok… I’ll try to keep it under control but I’m sorry: the name lends itself to a spacefleet of metaphors. Plus, it’s fun.

Moondust Eyeshadow Palette (CAN $70.00) | Housed in a gunmetal case with a diamond-textured exterior and the Moondust logo carved into the lid, there’s also a full-sized mirror on the inside for convenience. Displaying an ultra refined feel and no pesky/chunky glitter, these eyeshadows are not only supernova brilliant but can be worn either dry for a soft wash of shimmering colour, or applied with a dampened brush for an intense metallic look. All shades even boast a complex iridescence to sweeten the deal further, as if just looking at them wasn’t enough. Note: applying a primer or your preferred eye shadow base first and making sure to tap off any excess from your brush before application, will help minimize any potential falldown.

Top Row (the fun brights):

  • Specter – soft pink with tonal sparkle
  • Element – peach with pink shift & sparkle (with hints of copper too)
  • Magnetic – purple with blue sparkle (and strong on lavender tones)
  • Lightyear – vivid saturated green with a bonus strong aqua side

Bottom Row (the sultry gang):

  • Granite – black with multi colour sparkle (I see it as more of a complex steel)
  • Lithium – brown with iridescence; my eyes find this to be a stunning pewter
  • Vega – bright blue with tonal sparkle
  • Galaxy – smokey blue grey with iridescent 3D sparkle (and so perfectly named)

I’ll be the first to say that even though my comfort zone is neutrals and usually matte neutrals at that, I am also incurably drawn to all things sparkly. That said, shimmer is not always easy to pull off as one gets older but strategically placed it can serve to really brighten the face and detract from what you want kept hidden (i.e.: lines. Sigh). What I’m loving about the Moondust Eyeshadow Palette is A) the nicely compact size B) no brushes added that only get tossed anyway C) the almost creamy texture of the shades D) how beautifully everything applies & blends and E) the chance to wear colour in a new, fun, yet still sophisticated way. I’m especially crushing on the bottom row and in particular the ‘Galaxy’ shade which is truly otherworldly and must have had input from alien technology, it’s THAT original.

So spill fellow neutral-zoners….who else is as intrigued by this palette? Share your thoughts!
