Urban Decay Boogie Decades Mini Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition six-pan palette that included one matte shade, one pressed glitter, and four more shimmery shades. Turn the Beat was the hardest shade to work with, while Glitter Scene performed decently as one would expect a pressed glitter to, though there’s still room for improvement in that type of formula (in general). The other shades were better and easier to work with: pigmented, blendable, and had decent longevity.
Disco Diva is a bright, very light yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was slightly thicker, which had a tendency to emphasize skin texture if I wasn’t careful to smooth it out–preferably with a fingertip or a dampened brush–but it had opaque color coverage. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Outlandish is a medium-dark brown with soft, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and picked up nicely with a dry brush. The texture was smooth, not too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
I Like It
I Like It is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable, though it was lightly powdery in the pan. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Urban Decay Glitter Scene Pressed Glitter
Glitter Scene has a translucent base and is packed with iridescent, small-particle glitter that effectively looked like a silvery rainbow. The texture was very emollient–wet to the touch–and had decent dispersion and more semi-opaque “coverage” as a result. When I tested it as a cheek highlighter, it stayed in place fairly with with light migration over an eight-hour period.
It contains plastic (PET) glitter, though I did not see any warning or callout about it (this is not the first incident nor first brand to use glitter and no longer have a warning that it’s not for the eye area!).
Club Hop is a medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–the shimmer came through more noticeably than the base color, which let some skin show through–with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture that had a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan. The product applied fairly evenly and had only a smidgen of fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Turn the Beat
Turn the Beat is a blackened green base with lighter, emerald green pearl and micro-sparkle. The texture was drier and thinner, which resulted in more faded, uneven coverage in a single layer. It was buildable to some degree, but I’d recommend using it over a primer and pressing/patting it into place to get truer-to-pan intensity. You’ll want to do eyes first, though, has there were a lot of flyaway particles as I built it up and blended out the edges. It stayed on decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
