UD’s products are legends. Their Naked palettes have become famous and popular all over the world. So, I also have one of their products, which isn’t actually a palette but still very famous - an eyeshadow jar MoonDust in the shade #Solstice
Sparkly shadow goes ultra-sophisticated—with intense hues, microfine sparkle and lush, 3-D metallics. You’ve never seen a sparkly shadow this sophisticated. Moondust is dazzlingly sparkly but with a super refined, incredibly sophisticated feel (and not a single speck of chunky glitter). Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush, 3-D metallics—for an effect that’s out of this world.
The product was packed in a cardboard box with some useful (not really) information on it. The packaging is simple but I can clearly see the brand’s design here.
Texture-wise the eyeshadows are dry. They’ll dust a lot if you don’t know how to work with dry textures. But if you take a good fluffy brush, everything will be fine. If you don’t know how to apply these eyeshadows “right” I’ll help you. Always start applying them with a flat brush dabbing the color into the skin. And only after that take a fluffy brush for blending and dusting the edges. The eyeshadows are easy to blend. Remember that they are only the accent on your eyes so don’t apply them all over the eyelid, only in the middle and close to the inner corners of the eyes.
The pigmentation is amazing. Apply them over a primer and you’ll see them brighter and bolder. A primer will also add longevity to your make-up. What’s more, this shade becomes even more dazzling if applied on a primer.
Shade. Oh, it’s so complicated and different and bright and everything. The product is douchromatic. In other words the shade varies from tender blue to bright purple with blue shimmer on a marsala base. The shade is so difficult to describe. Sometimes when I look very close to it I can see emerald colors, turquoise, plum and bordeaux. And they are all shining and dazzling!
#Solstice should be applied over some other eyeshadow! It's very important to apply these eyeshadows over others. Sometimes I can see girls who apply this color either on their bare eyelids or over a primer and the beautiful color #Solstice looks poor and sheer! What a mistake! Just apply them over some darker eyeshadows and blend out the edges and you’ll see a massive difference. All the creamy or gel-like eyeshadows of dark, brown or taupe shades will go underneath well. I also tried to apply this eyeshadow on my bare skin and ended up looking like my eyes were burnt.
One more option of how to wear this shade is to apply it over a black wing. I do it the following way: I spritz a thin eyeshadow brush with thermal water and get the color. Then I just apply it over the wing made with gel eyeliner and in the end I have this:
I remembered that I was wearing these eyeshadows on Christmas Eve and decided to add some pictures for you too see my make-up. I accentuated my eyes with the help of a black eye pencil applied over my entire lid and then coated with this eyeshadow in the middle of my eyes. I also added some sparkling silver shade from the Naked palette to the inner corners.
And the total look:
The MoonDust Urban Decay eyeshadows are unique. In the collection there are so many different stunning colors! I’m obsessed!
