Guess what? Urban Decay has reformulated their eyeshadows! They now come in 68 shades and you can buy them either as single or in a 6-piece palette.

Not only did they reformulate them to be super soft, velvety and opaque, about half of them were previously only available in palettes.

These new shadows are longer lasting, easier to blend and have a smoother finish and feel. They also come in a new gunmetal case which you can use on it’s own or easily pop out (without using the flat iron method!) to add into their palette.

Five of the shadows I have for you today were previously only in palettes, and they are: Kush, Pistol, Rockstar, Lost and Zephyr.

Clockwise: Zephyr, Lost, Pistol, Rockstar, Kush, Shattered

Zephyr is a shimmery off-white shadow. Very opaque and crazy soft.

Lost is a deep shimmery bronze/brown. Again so incredibly velvety smooth and opaque.

Pistol is a shimmery steel grey/brown. This is just as soft, but a little more sheer than the other two.

Shattered is a shimmery duotone. It’s a pale blue with yellow duotone effect. So pretty and soft!

Kush is a sparkly shimmer shadow. It’s a bright grass green. Because of the sparkle it doesn’t feel as soft as the others but that’s to be expected I think.

Rockstar is a shimmery deep eggplant purple. Rockstar eyeliner has long been my favorite liner, and this matching shadow is great as well!

Overall: As far as the new packaging and shadow textures, I love them. They are just as soft and saturated as they said they would be. I like that you can easily pop them out of the case into a palette without ruining them.

However, they are pricey! They are $18.00 for 0.05 oz. If you buy the palette (which is also $18) it comes with the shadow Walk Of Fame, which is a pinky/peach matte shade. The palette has a large mirror and brush included as well. So overall you are paying $108.00 for the palette and 6 eyeshadows.

Availability: Urban Decay.

Pricing: $18.00 for 0.05 oz.

So what do you think about these new shadows? Worth the repackaged, revamped formula or too expensive for you?
