Review: Urban Decay eyeshadow in Dashiki

Recently, Urban Decay released a few 70s themed shades, exclusively available at sephora.  These had the classic almost-metallic Urban Decay Frost finish, bright colors, and are some of my favorites from the line!  I’ve held off buying them individually, in the hopes that they might release some sort of limited edition palette with all of the shades.  Haight, and Psychedelic sister were included in the holiday Book of Shadows palette, but the shades I really wanted—-woodstock, and Dashiki were not, so I gave in and bought them on their own.

Urban Decay shadows are $18 each, and fit nicely in MAC palettes when depotted.  It’s standard price for mid-high end, but it may be expensive enough that you should think about how often you’ll use the color.  Dashiki is a GORGEOUS blue, with a hint of teal. It’s darker than the photo may make you think, but still suitable as a lid color to make eyes pop. I LOVE the color, finish, blending ability, and texture.  No glittery fallout, nasty chunky messes, streaky pigmentation here!

I’ve never noticed UD shadows fading or creasing, over primer.  They blend evenly, are nicely pigmented, and have a soft, almost buttery texture in application.  Tap the brush on the pan to minimize eyeshadow-kick-up.  This is soft enough that if you rub it on it, you may kill your product much faster!

    Great pics, thanks for the review! Dashiki is on sale at sephora online for $6 a pop, which is a great deal.
