Doesn’t Liquid Moondust just sound amazing? The galactic inspired collection is filled with speckles of glitter to revamp your festive looks.

Earlier this year Urban Decay released an 8 shade eyeshadow palette called Moondust and now they have brought out 8 liquid eyeshadow shades and I just couldn’t wait to pick these up.

The Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows were originally exclusive to Sephora but for their 2016 Christmas collection, Urban Decay finally treated us to these little beauties. So a couple of weeks ago I was invited to an UD blogger event and we got an exclusive first look at the Christmas products ahead of release! So you can imagine how excited I was to finally get my hands on these. After umming’ and ahhing’ over the shades I decided to go for Zap and SolsticeUrban Decay | Liquid Moondust Urban Decay | Liquid Moondust

I’m just a lover of Urban Decay’s eyeshadows in general! I’ve got 5 eyeshadow palettes now and I’ve always been intrigued with cream and other formulas. So when I first imagined liquid eyeshadow, I thought these would be quite creamy. Well I was right, the lipgloss style applicator allows you to apply to your eyelids so easily. The colour just glides over so lovely and with just one coat. One application goes a long way and it’s just beautiful how pigmented it is. For this kind of look you’d need to spray lots of setting spray to get this kind of result.

“A creamy liquid version of Urban Decay’s coveted Moondust Eyeshadow formula”.

Unlike the Moondust eyeshadows, the Liquid Moondust contains microfine bits of iridescent sparkle and 3D metallics to create a diamond-like finish. It definitely looks like a metallic finish to me, with almost a foil effect too. If you’re wondering how it goes over existing eyeshadows – it works fine. First I tried it on its own, which I think looks perfect if you’re not into ‘eye looks’.

If you’re in a rush but you still want a pretty eye look then these are your life saver. I think these are perfect to keep in your bag, instead of carrying a palette so definitely a travel necessary!

Whereas if you do want to go all out (why wouldn’t you) then this looks great as a base or a top coat. I also think these are very similar to the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize, very similar formula and pigmentation.

As I say, these liquid eyeshadows are lightweight, dry instantly and its buildable for more intense looks.

  • Zap –  gold with tonal sparkle
  • Solstice pink-red with green 3-D sparkle & shift

The other 6 shades include a light nude, metallic green, purple, bronze, peach and bright blue! I think out of the 8 shades I’m really happy I picked these two up. They pair up really nice together too, the Solstice looks nice for rose gold looks and Zap works well with Smoky eyes and it’s definitely versatile.

Above I’m wearing Zap in the middle paired with other gold shadows – it looks amazing in person and if your new to wearing eyeshadow Liquid Moondust are definitely good to start with. If your like me and just love glittery eyes, you need these for Christmas time. I wish they did a red shade – now that would be gorgeous over the festive season.

Would you try these?

    Just out of curiosity are these easy to wear and work with? xx

      Yeah definitely! Better than powder shadows in my opinion. Their good for beginners to wear on their own for a quick look 🙂 xx

        Ah that’s good! I always end up wary of liquid and creams cause of creasing so thanks for this!

          Noo I know what you mean, I haven’t found that with this though – it does give a foiled effect sometimes which I think looks nice 🙂

    Oo, these look so pretty and pigmented! I definitely have to try them! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    These looks amazing!! You definitely picked the best two colours <3 <3

    Aren’t these amazing! I have solstice and magnetic (the purple one) and they are GORGEOUS! I did find that I have to put primer potion underneath other wise it creases but other than that they’re incredible. I do think the packaging looks a bit crap though and not very Urban decay at all. what do you think?xxx
