Eyeshadow is my kryptonite, I just can't keep away from it. I love that it can completely transform your face. The colours can actually bring the Colour out in your eyes and give them more depth. I also like that I can match my mood, whether I want a light, daytime look or a deep, dark, sultry one.
With that in mind, today's review is of Urban Decays eyeshadow in Space Cowboy. I actually got this as part of a Sephora Favourites kit although I do have it in a Urban Decay eyeshadow palette from ages ago too.
Honestly if you swatch this bad boy you probably be a little confused. It's got lots of fine glitter in it but it's not incredibly pigmented. The shade is somewhere between a light brown, beige and peach. It is beautiful but for me there's something a little odd about it as I think I expect it to come off more pigmented than it does.
The glitter makes the texture a little gritty, not to the point it's scratchy on application but just for the fact that it's not that creamy formula that we all know and love.
As I find the pigment to be so sheer, I do wear this eyeshadow with Maybelline Color Tattoo in On And On Bronze. I have to say that I can't imagine me ever wearing this shade without someone else underneath as it's just a little too sheer for me.
The bottom line is... this eyeshadow is stunning when used with something else, even if it's a fairly light shadow underneath I just feel like it needs something. The sparkle is fantastic and it does wear very well on my skin with minimal fall out. I hope you found this review helpful!
