Urban Decay Flash eyeshadow
I have become a new convert to Urban Decay, and despite the company's decision to sell in China, then take back their decision I still love the quality of their products. I already own the Naked 2 palette and the Anniversary box, but wanted some other colours to add to the collection as I already have plenty of browns and neutrals.
I initially didn't like the shadow as I thought the colour was too pale, and when applied was too sheer. I have read many reviews from people who had the same experience initially. But after working with it I found the colour buildable and easy to work with and it turned out to be a good addition to my makeup look for the event I was atending.
It has a cool undertone, and has hints of both silver and blue in it, and looks amazing with both of these colours. It think it works well if you are doing a smokey eye look, or even if you want a little splash of colour. If you want staying power I would recommend a good primer under it as alone the colour payoff isn't great and fades quickly.
A plus is that it isn't glittery, but is shimmery with a matte finish. This gets a big thumbs up from me and one of my favourite eyeshadows of the moment.
It is priced £14 and available here.
