Review: Urban Decay eyeshadow in Woodstock

It’s time and past that I wrote about this.  I’m sure I don’t need to remind you all that I’m a sucker for pink eyeshadows.  And this is one of the best I’ve tried!

Luscious, bright fuchsia with a faint sheen.  It’s not particularly warm or cool, almost more of a raspberry tone.

It has the trademark UD texture and finish-soft, buttery, pigmented, easily blendable, with a faint frosty sheen that somehow doesn’t look white or silver.  You can also use a fluffy brush and sheer it out for a more wearable raspberry tone.

Over primer, it stays put well and doesn’t fade.

Shadows like this are my favorite thing about UD.  THis color is a Sephora exclusive, and well worth teh 17$.   So it’s definitely a splurge for your average makeup user, but it is, in many ways, easier ot work with than comparable shadows from “mineral” lines like Fyrinnae, or matte shades from MAC.  MUFE doesn’t have a comparable shade.

If you’re just beginning to play with bright colors, UD is an excellent way to go, because so many of them are easy to work with.  I’m hopeful that eventually they’ll create a palette of the sephora exclusive, including this color.  Because those shades are of  a very uniform quality, no nasty glittery ones, so no chance of getting a bad shade.

Here’s product photos, and swatches!

      it REALLY is. It blends so prettily in practice, and it’s not as warm as a few of the other hot pinks/fuchsias that I love. So I think you can get a lot more use out of it with different effects, and skin tones. I Looooooove this color!
