Urban Decay Loose Shadow Swatches
A few weeks ago Hautelook had a sale with Urban Decay products that had all products shown available for $2 each! I decided to pick up a bunch of the UD Loose powders, because I always wanted to try them out but never wanted to shell out the high price tag ($20 each).
The main thing I don’t like with these is the packaging. I really don’t like the brush it comes with, it’s stiff and doesn’t allow much application wise; it actually almost seems to cause the pigment to bounce off the brush, so it is a little messy. I found when swatching these (which I did with the brush) that there was a ton of fallout, but I think that if you poured a little bit of pigment onto an artist plate or petri dish and used a different brush, they would be much less prone to fallout.
The colors themselves had great pigmentation, they were nice and opaque right off the bat. I especially like the darker colors, they have a really pretty glitter that is easy to see (lots of pigments tend to have glitter but it isn’t too noticeable). I think that these would be especially awesome if you applied them wet!
