Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether, Revolution Lipstick in Naked, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Today I would like to share two products I am loving at the moment. They are not brand new but I got to try them recently with the arrival of Urban Decay to Germany at the end of last year. 

If you are following me, you might already know that Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils are my all time favorite eye liners and I use them daily on my looks. I also own all their Naked Palettes. Although I find Naked Palettes to be very good value for money, I don't reach for them very often. Since now I can go to the counter and play with the testers, it was time to get introduced to the brand with two other products from the range. Today I would like to write about Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether and Revolution Lipstick in Naked.


Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether, Revolution Lipstick in Naked


Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether is one of the new shade in Moondust range. The formula of this one is close to pressed pigments of MAC, such as ones reviewed here. They can both be applied wet and dry but I can clearly say that I prefer Urban Decay's Ether to any of the MAC pressed pigments I own. The reasons for this are: the glitters are more sparse so it makes a more wearable eye shadow for the day time, it applies much better once used dry although I have to almost always use MAC pressed pigments wet, and finally because it does apply more evenly over all. The glitter in Ether is so complex, it makes my heart skip a beat. Urban Decay calls it "3-D Sparkle" for a good reason. It almost dances with light in all possible colors. My one and only concern with these is the fall out during the day. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether definitely needs a sticky base under it to keep it in place.

The base shade of Ether is a dusky purple and the glitters in punk give it a more purple look over all. All I can say is that if you like purple on the eyes, you need Ether. I like applying the shade all over the lid but not as high as the crease since I don't like glitter near my crease. I apply a cool brown shade, such as MAC Brun on the crease and add a bit of highlighter shade on the inner corner, voilà. Below I combined Ether with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyepencil in Tornado and Chanel Le Volume Mascara on upper and lower lashes.



In-action: Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether

I was excited to try my first lip product from Urban Decay. It was a shocking moment to find out that I only own eye products from the brand although I have to confess that I was tempted by the cheek products a few times. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked was a shot in the bull's eye for me. I am always in for my lips but better shades with pink in them. Naked is not too light nor too deep, the rose undertones brighten up the face. The formula feels nice and balmy without being too thick. It doesn't dry out my lips and has a moderate longevity. Since I am a foody and a passionate coffee drinker, it is hard to say exactly how long it stays *grins*.


Swatch: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked

Here is me wearing Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether on the eyes and Revolution Lipstick in Naked on the lips. I have combined these with Tom Ford Cheek Color in Frantic Pink which I am also loving at the moment, especially with a nice nude lip like this one and smoky eyes.I have worn this look 3 times in the last 2 weeks, which is, well, unbelievably often considering my stash size. I have also went to the counter and grabbed one more Moondust, the one in Solstice. I managed to resist Scorpio, at least for now!

Final thoughts: If you can get along with a little bit of fall out during the day or use a sticky base, Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether is a purple lover's dream. I am also very surprised to see how much I liked Revolution Lipstick in Naked, the shade is phenomenal and it is very comfortable to wear. Two thumbs up from me.

Which other products would you recommend me from Urban Decay range that I have yet to try? What is your favorite product from them?

  1. OOO you guys got UD? Lucky you! I'm wondering when/if that will ever happen here! I don't think I'll like the eyeshadow very much, but the lipstick is tempting! Maybe not this particular shade because you know my lips eat color, but the formula sounds great! Love how the two look on you :)

  2. The Moondust Eyeshadows are so tempting, Zodiac especially. This one is so amazing - but I'm too lazy to work with a base, wet brush - I like products which work without any huge efforts. BUT Ether looks so nice on you! Very every day like! And the lipstick is MLBB-shade - I like!!

  3. This is my favorite color combo - purple eyes and muted coral lips. The eyeshadow is so sparkly in the most gorgeous way! Now I'm tempted to get it!

  4. Nice lipstick! I know that you don't like wearing lip glosses, but UD has good ones. I don't have any naked palettes and somehow I don't want any, also their single eyeshadows for me are rather a miss. The metallic ones are too frosty and thick, while some of the matte ones are too powdery. There are some very nice basic makeup colors, but somehow UD just doesn't turn me on, something is missing.

  5. We recently got UD here as well, but only in Oslo, so I still have to order, but at least I don't have to think about that limit I'm always moaning about where it gets crazy expensive to order from abroad. So now I'm just patiently waiting for Ether, Solstice and Scorpio (do I need it?) to arrive. I like to use these with the all Nighter setting spray, either wetting my brush with it or spray it on top to minimize the fall-out. Now I'm tempted to get the Naked lippie, though. And I need another nude as much as I need another red lipstick, and I need that as much as I need another bronzer... And you know how it goes.

  6. Hi Sara, hmmm Ether is just too shiny for my liking... but that lipstick is delicious on you!! I'm still waiting to try out the new Naked concealer.... have you seen that one yet?

  7. I like the base colour of Ether, and I'd love it if it's less shiny :-) I love Naked lipstick on you though!

  8. *gasp* I need that lippie... I really really REALLY do. It looks fantastic on you.

  9. Ether is so pretty, sparkles heavan ! What type of sticky base do you use with it?

  10. I just came here to leave the exact same comment! Ether is so beautiful and I would definitely like to know what kind of base you'd use!

  11. Let me experiment with it a little more. I'd say a cream eye shadow as a base would hold it better than Urban Decay Base I used here. I believe MAC Paint Pots would be good candidate. I also have dry eye lids so I have to be careful here. Eye shadows do fall out more on me too.

  12. LOL, yes it would look fab on your lips, it is your kind of color!

  13. Hi Lily,

    most of the glam comes out once you have the right light. With day light it doesn't look like in the swatch but like on FOTD. Of course I work in an office and we have meetings in rooms with that type of light, then I am a little too glammy for that occasion maybe but I think the colleagues are used to me like this now. I wouldn't wear it to a business meeting with customer or something ;-)

  14. Hi Linda,
    I haven't tried the concealer yet. I might have to check it out but right now I am hooked to Clarins Instant Concealer, it definitely serves the purpose so maybe I shouldn't check it out lol

  15. Urban Decay eyeshadows are the best in my opinion! I won the same shade of the lipstick and it's my absolute favorite go to nude lipstick. It looks slightly pinker on me. You should try the Sheer Revolution lipsticks too, they feel even more comfortable on the lips than the regular formula.

  16. Hi Siri,
    it is interesting to hear that Urban Decay is now rolling out in Europe. I can't wait to hear what you think or Moondust that you ordered. I am also thinking I might have to go back for Scorpio, lol.
    I use MAC Fix+ which I have at the moment and it works fine as well. You need that lipstick, it is so gorgeous!

  17. You know me very well Jane lol.
    Each time I end up purchasing a gloss because it has so nice multi dimensional shimmer, it is tossed under my Make-up hill and never get used, so I believe I should stop doing that.

  18. Hi Jaa,
    I know you like these type of shades and they would both look gorgeous on you.

  19. Hi Sunny, looking at the comment of Siri, it seems Norway also lately got UD. It is just a matter of time you will get it too. They are rolling out in Europe now, yay!

  20. Oooh Zodiac is a killer color. Absolute NEED!!
    I know what you mean with eye shadow but my make-up routine in the morning is like meditation to me, so I like when things need a bit more effort so I can spend more time. Does that make sense or do you now think I am a freak? hahaha

  21. Hi Agata,
    I need to check out the sheers, the colors are absolutely beautiful. And the texture is really good!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am exactly the same. I love how glosses look in the tubes, but I also realized that all year around I only use lipsticks, so I won't buy any more. Even when I force myself to pick some gloss in my stash, then I always choose a creamy opaque ones, without shimmer.

  23. This color but without creasing might be Estee Lauder Gelle eyeshadow in Cyber Lilac. It is pitty that EL is going to discontinue this gelee line, these eyeshadow are really great for the a soft metallic look. I bought them in almost all colors after their makeup artist made me a great eyelook in like 1 minute, mixing gold, pink, lilac, and ruby with a wet brush. No fallout, no blending, no creasing, a makeup for dummies :)

  24. Oooh I didn't know they are discontinuing their Gelee line, I loved them as well :-( I should check out and pick up the ones I would like before they are gone forever, thanks for the heads-up

  25. I picked up a few just after they originally launched and they're my faves for a touch of sparkles that doesn't end up all over the place.
