For all you glitter junkies out there who crave a heavy dose of glitz Urban Decay has added 4 new shimmerriffic shades to their interstellar Moondust Collection. Designed to glam up any look these lush, mesmerizing 3-D metallic shadows have a gorgeous diamond-like finish in some seriously intense, dreamy hues.
The shade I went for is called Ether which is no surprise since I have a slight obsession for all things purple. When I first saw the fierce abundance of glitter I assumed it was going to feel gritty and apply a bit chunky but I was totally wrong! The eyeshadow is formulated with micro-fine, multidimensional particles for a smooth sophisticated effect. The texture feels slightly creamy but applies like a powder with no creasing of fading.
Like many glitters the top layer is where the party is, it has the heaviest, most saturated layer of shimmer which applies beautifully for a show stopping iridescent finish. The pigment applies with the same striking effect as loose formulas but it is less messy and easier to control. When you begin to dig away through the surface the shadow underneath is less shimmery but still stunning enough to create a dramatic twinkle.
The pigment can be applied lightly for a sheer wash of glistening color or you can layer it on heavy to really enhance the smokey grey toned purple for a bold reflective look. The shadows are also travel friendly and you can pop them out of the pan and create your own custom palettes, they retail for $24.00 each.
If you are going with sassy glitter on the eyes then you may want balance the look with something sheer and seductive on the lips. Urban Decay has also released some trendy, badass, buttery lipsticks! The Sheer Revolution collection includes a range of shades that combines sheer coverage with vibrant hues.
These are great for women who are a bit timid to wear bright, bold color but still want to experiment with something more dramatic. The color goes from subtle and sultry to va-va-voom medium coverage in just a few swipes.

The lightweight color drenches lips in a blanket of moisture and the smooth, buttery formula is unscented and feels great. The vivid red I chose is called F-Bomb which makes lips look plump and pouty. Infused with a blend of nourishing shea butter, antioxidants, jojoba, olive, babassu oil and vitamins C and E the lipsticks are indulgent and rich.
The Revolution lipsticks retail for $26.00 each and you can find Urban Decay Cosmetics at Sephora locations, Sephora.com and select Shoppers Drug Mart locations.
