Urban Decay Loose Eyeshadow Swatches and Review

I didn't realize that I didn't do swatches of the Urban Decay Loose Eyeshadows I had until I won a couple more. The loose eyeshadows are discontinued but if you swap or find them on Ebay, you should definitely pick them up as long as they're not full priced.

From left to right: Asphyxia, Graffiti, Gunmetal, Shag, Shattered, Smog


Swatched over ELF Mineral Eye Primer


Asphyxia is a fuchsia with a purple pearl. It reminds me of MAC Pink Pearl Pigment. It had the worse texture, sort of flaky and reminescent of MAC Rose pigment which makes it difficult to apply.

Graffiti is a bright grassy green.

Gunmetal is a gunmetal grey with a lot of silver sparkle.

Shag is a pink toned tan. Definitely liked this as a wash over my lids. A little more pink toned in real life.

Shattered is a frosty aqua, a little more green toned in real life.

Smog is a darker bronze brown with a golden sheen.

For $17, I think Urban Decay was just setting itself up for failure. You only get one gram of product packaged very inconveniently. I'm very glad to have gotten them on sale and in Utopista's giveaway because I can't imagine having paid $102 retail.

As a nice bonus, here's a picture of the aftermath of depotting.



  1. Sucks to hear they're discontinued D: They look awesome.. I hope I can get my hands on at least on eyeshadow from UD sometime.. must visit the US >:D

    Please do a look with these eyeshadows! ^^ I know they're super messy to work with.. but I'd LOVE to see an EOTD :3

  2. They must have been on crack for how much they were charging for them!
