A while back Urban Decay reformulated their eyeshadows and since I was fully stocked up on palettes and some of their single pans I paid no attention. But the time came to replace this personal favorite. I must say their new pigment infusion system is AWESOME. The trademark NYC Subway Coin compact is now more of a shiny gunmetal finish with a transparent lid to clearly see the color of the shadow. The new formula gives this metallic golden beige a softer feel yet it’s able to keep that pop of color I love. I found the old formula to be a bit tough to blend, as with all of UD’s glitter infused separates.
The blending capability of the new formula is much easier and the silver glitter doesn’t budge; so no fall out issues here just a strong dense lasting application of a great eyeshadow. Speaking of application I have found using finger tips or brushes both work well. Whether you choose to use this color dry or wet its rich decadent shade emerges intensely making it a real “wowie”. I found a great array of colors to work with in the Naked 3 Palette (March 24th review) and I found that burgundies such as MAKEUP GEEK’s Burlesque make great partners.
Loving this color is easy because it works so well on all skin tones. The uniform pigment gives darker tones an intense pop of color while those on the fair side will receive a playful sparkle. And as always Urban Decay created one of the better long lasting and crease free eyeshadow formulas this girl cannot say “No” to.
