Urban Decay

MOONDUST Eyeshadow Palette…  $49

.

If you haven’t already heard…  There is a new eyeshadow palette out by Urban Decay called the moondust eyeshadow palette.  Let me be clear and state that I do like Urban Decay shadows.  There is nothing wrong with them.  But, they are overpriced.  And this moondust eyeshadow palette although pretty is not a reinvention of the wheel.  Lets strip some of the mystery away here…  First, remember you can apply glitter on any shadow of your choosing.  Second, there are baked and high glitter shadow available at the drugstore in a vast array of colors.  Lastly, don’t forget you can add eye drops or fix to your shadows to make them pop more.  Also keep in mind you don’t have to buy any shades of individual shadows you don’t want.  You have more control when your picking and choosing.  So, before you spend your hard earned coin lets take a look at these shadows and find some drugstore alternatives!

  1. I agree way too overpriced and they basically put the same shadows in a new palette!!. That moondust looks so much like one, forgotten the name that came out about a year or two ago!!😏. Mind you i do like UD but they gotta do better!

    1. They are an overpriced makeup brand. And I also noticed the ‘moondust’ shades look very much like the ‘through the looking glass’ eyeshadow palette. In addition, NYX has been making Prismatic Eyeshadows for quite some time that are highly glittered in a vast array of colors to choose from for $6 each.

      1. Exactly!! you’re on the mark there..i have enough eyeshadow palettes from UD so i’m good. I might check out their lipsticks though, and oh i can’t live without the primer potion, it’s the only one that works for my oily lids lol..;). Nyx is my day 1 brand, affordable and really good!

    1. Thanks! Jordana makes great products for the price. They recently revamped their eyeshadow line which is sad for me, I liked a lot of their older stuff. And at times it can be difficult to find their stuff in store. So, ordering it online is the way to go if you want the biggest choice in color and product.
