I wish you guys could have seen me when I opened the package that these were mailed in- there was quite a bit of jumping up and down in excitement! These are the newest eyeshadows from Urban Decay, and they’re SOOOO COOL! They’re called Moondust Eyeshadows, and they’re suuuuper shimmery, sparkly, lush shadows that have iridescent sparkle and 3-D Metallics, so the effect is very similar to sun-on-water (I hope that makes sense?! When I look at these I immediately think of how the sun looks reflecting off a lake, haha!) Check out photos below!
The packaging on these is also different from UD’s traditional packaging- the compact is a pale silver instead of the usual gunmetal, so they are easy to spot.

Space Cowboy is a light champagne shade with loooaaaads of sparkle. The base color here is really fairly light, especially with the silver sparkle on top.
Diamond Dog Moondust EyeshadowDiamond Dog Moondust Eyeshadow
Diamond Dog is a medium brown with white-gold sparkle. This photographed really light, I remember it having a slightly darker base color in person.
Stargazer Moondust EyeshadowStargazer Moondust Eyeshadow
Stargazer is a gorgeous green-gold shade with gold sparkle. This has less of that sun-on-water look I mentioned and more of a sparkle effect.
Zodiac Moondust EyeshadowZodiac Moondust Eyeshadow
Zodiac is probably my favorite shade here. Black base with blue green sparkle and duochrome. The photos don’t do this shade justice, it kinda reminds me of an oil spill. so much shimmer!
Moonspoon Moondust EyeshadowMoonspoon Moondust Eyeshadow
Moonspoon is a medium gray with silver sparkle. LOADS of sparkle in this one!!
Intergalactic Moondust EyeshadowIntergalactic Moondust Eyeshadow
Intergalactic makes me want to listen to the Beastie Boys. aaaaanyways.. this is a medium purple/lilac with silver sparkle.
Glitter Rock Moondust EyeshadowGlitter Rock Moondust Eyeshadow
Glitter Rock is a metallic pink with bright pink sparkle.
These are all super soft shadows with a creamy texture that apply just like your regular powdered eyeshadows. My only complaint (and it’s something thats inevitable) is that every time I would remove a swatch, my arm would get all the micro sparkle everywhere, and I was feeling a bit like a Twilight Vampire. The sparkle stays put when you put the shadow on, but just be aware when you’re taking your makeup off- you might look like you are channeling a Cullen!
Also, because of their texture these shadows would awesome when used wet! The shadow itself won’t harden up like traditional powders. And if you use them wet, the sparkle is INSANELY more prominent.
These don’t seem to be available yet, but will be available for $20 each from Urban Decay.
