Product Review: Urban Decay Deluxe Shadows In Fishnet, Graffiti, Heat, Peace, Ransom, and Zero

Description from URBANDECAY.COM = Our divine collection of high-tech creamy powder eye color will turn your eyes into opulent works of art. Why “Deluxe”? Definitely incomparable, the creamy formula feels like cashmere, blends beautifully, and delivers an even more intense burst of color than regular Urban Decay Eye shadows. And, deluxe hues have an even greater fill weight than our regular Eye shadows - a generous serving. Created with maximum staying power, Deluxe Eye shadows offer incredibly long-lasting wear that won’t fade (especially when paired with our miraculous Eye shadow Primer Potion). The result? Gorgeous, gem-like lids that are worthy of their own exhibit. Packaged in weighted, hinged and mirrored compacts, each vibrant shadow features a unique piece of art inspired by graffiti, street art, and graphic design. Dip into these sumptuous shades and experience never-before-seen (or felt) eye shadow extravagance.

My Opinion/Review = This product retails for $18.00USD each. One Word for these shadows “AMAZING!” these blends effortlessly, it has vibrant color, and last forever! Need I say more? Truly if you can get your hands on these babies, I recommend you do so.
The packaging on these is fun and unique; each individual shadow compact has its own signature design and a mirror for on the go use, all around the best shadows!
(Side Note: dropping these shadows can cause great damage to the compact and shadow seen on ransom picture)

Fishnet is an iridescent purple (a lot of people relate this to M.A.C’s Stars N' Rockets eye shadow, In all reality though fishnet is the better choice of the 2, it has a way better color pay off). I’m in love with this color its more like a pink and purple shade all in one, applying a purple base you get more of a purple color or when you apply a pink base it turns out more pink, and when applying a nude or neutral base you get this a amazing purple pink color. If I had to recommend getting one deluxe eye shadow, fishnet would be the best bet only of course if you’re into pink or purple.

Graffiti is a bright Kelly green. This color green is so pretty, all green lovers should have this.

Heat is a fiery red-orange

 Peace is a shimmering turquoise

Ransom is a vibrant purple (This color purple is a blue base purple…I’m explaining what kind of purple this is because some of you may have the problem of applying a purple color to your lids and the out come may make you look like you just got punched…lol. N E who this is such a gorgeous purple, it’s a color that you can wear alone with out being compelled to apply a crease or outer v color.)

Zero is a smoking black (every makeup junkie knows that they need a black shadow in there collection, I just happened to choose zero with its great quality in blending, color pay off, and staying power.) write a comment on your favorite matte black shadow and tell me why you like it so much.

=Overall score: ★★★★★=

Hope You Enjoyed This Entry. Till Next Time!

  2. @ jojoba (My Makeup Reviews) --- Zero is a matte black with a slight satin finish.
    I'm having the same problem too, I really want a shimmery black with out glitter, but no luck, it’s either glittery or matte. Let me know if you ever find one I would love to try it out. Thx!
