Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow is a new glittery eyeshadow that comes in seven shades.
These eyeshadows feature microfine iridescent sparkles, rather than chunky glitter pieces. They are meant to be more “adult” with a diamond-like effect. They feel pretty smooth, more like a cream shadow, but they are a pressed powder. They apply like a powder and have tons of depth, sparkle and some with a 3-D-like effect. No grit whatsoever!
As far as fallout…well I haven’t worn them on my eyes yet, but I can say they definitely get fine sparkles everywhere when swatching on my hand! They suggest applying with a finger (which is what I would do since that helps with fallout) and you can use wet or dry.
They come in the “pop-out” silver compacts, that you can put into their Build Your Own Palette system also, which is great!

Stargazer, Moonspoon, Zodiac (over primer and wet)
Stargazer is a lime green/gold with gold 3-D sparkle. AMAZING, my 2nd favorite one here.
Moonspoon is a medium grey with silver sparkle.
Zodiac is a smoked out black with heavy blue/green shift and blue/green 3-D sparkle. This, of course, is my favorite one. I could stare at it all day.
The one I don’t have is called Intergalactic and it’s a medium purple with silver sparkle.
Overall: These are really quite cool if you like sparkly shadows. They don’t have a gritty or harsh feel to them, and they are really quite pigmented. I have a sneaky suspicion they won’t exactly be mess-free when applying them, especially dry, but maybe worth it! I think the deeper shades are the more interesting ones. I love Stargazer and Zodiac especially because they are really interesting and intense shades.
Availability: Sephora, Ulta, Urban Decay (soon).
What do you think about these? Sparkly enough for ya or too sparkly?
