I’m a little late to the Urban Decay Moondust party, but man, these eyeshadows rock! This palette is definitely made for glitter addicts.
I snagged this on sale at Sephora for $24.50 during their Weekly Wow promotion. It’s normal price at the moment on Sephora.com, BUT today [Christmas] Ulta.com has this on sale for 50% off.
The Moondust Palette contains eight shades of Moondust Eyeshadow exclusive to this palette. If you’re familiar with the Moondust formula, these eyeshadows are designed to be very glittery and sparkly with a more intense color payoff if applied wet. Before this palette, you could only buy the shadows as individuals for $21 a pop. This palette gives you 8 shades for $49.
The packaging is super pretty. It’s a gunmetal case with a glitterized texture, but it’s sealed in well so there is no fallout on the case. Inside there is a mirror that takes up most of the lid.
These eyeshadows are all very glitzy and don’t have big chunks of glitter, which I love. It’s more like micro-glitter with lots of sparkle and shine. They work really well as toppers over other shadows or individually over a primer. Because they’re so glittery, they don’t blend together that well using a brush. I prefer to apply them with my finger over a similar color. Applying with my finger instead of a brush means less fallout, too.
I applied the swatches below dry, but Urban Decay recommends applying wet for stronger color payoff. I think the dry swatches are pretty good as is!
I’m so happy with my purchase and am already looking at buying some Moondust individuals to add to my collection.
