This eyeshadow has a bold colour which appeals to many people. It can be mixed and blended with other colours and works really well with a lighter shade. However, I found it requires the use of the Urban Decay Primer to allow the colour to stay bold and in place. Without the primer, I found the bold colour faded and ended up needing to be reapplied after a couple of hours.
With my foundation, Urban Decay Blunt does not feel greasy or cheap. When wearing the eyeshadow, you can tell it is made from quality pigments. If a primer is not applied, the eyeshadow can also release some powder onto your cheeks, which is then a nightmare to clean (if you have happened to put on foundation or any moisteriser). The Blunt shade container lasts for a long time but the eyeshadow will shatter if it is dropped or not handled extremely carefully. The fragilness of the eyeshadow does make it difficult to transport it in a makeup bag or pouch. Therefore I found it beneficial if I didn't have to re-apply... By using the primer.
A huge disadvantage of this eyeshadow is that it can cause the wearer to look like they have a black eye if it is applied too heavily. However, with understanding of a colour match, you can counteract this downside by using a lighter colour within the blunt shade. I found it easy to mix colours together to make a lighter shade of blunt in order to take away the harsh darkness.
This eye shadow is a gorgeous, bright, vibrant color, suitable for anyone going out partying or searching for a striking look. Urban Decay is a well known, trusted brand and I always expect high quality from them. This product is no exception, however there are a few disadvantages. It can smudge very easily after application, meaning you may have to tidy up your foundation a little bit. Also, it can fade quite quickly so if you are engaging in vigorous activities such as dancing you may need to reapply it. However, I think that the beautiful shade of purple is worth the hassle of a couple of trips to the bathroom for touch ups. Heavy applications are definitely needed because of the slight lack of pigmentation, especially if you have a darker skin tone. (Some of my friends suggested rubbing it on with a finger rather than a brush and I do think this helped!) I think the price is a little high considering you only get one color of eye shadow but if you are willing to splash out a little and treat yourself this is definitely the product for you. This particular eye shadow comes in handy when blending with a few other eye shadows to create a more sophisticated look. It blends easily and allows a nice finish to eye make-up. I have been flattered enough to have been asked several times when wearing this eye shadow what brand it was was, where I got it etc., which shows that it is a beautiful color. I would definitely recommend this product.
Urban Decay is a very well known and very high quality makeup brand with unique products which differ from other brands. This beautiful eyeshadow is no exception but also does have cons as it can fade quickly and need reapplying often if you aren't sat in the same position all day.
It is of a very striking colour though and being such a deep shade of purple it's very attractive and always gets lots of good compliments especially when your out and about.
One pot lasts quite a long time - my last one I had for a couple of months before needing to purchase another. They are quite full and you only really need a little dab of it on the brush at a time as the power is quite thick. I recommend using a primer of some sort to try and stick it down before wearing it though on account of the fact it rubs off quite fast.
Priced at £14.00 just about everywhere online I think this is fair. It comes in high quality packaging as well which is easy to open, looks very professional and is small and compact enough to fit securely into any makeup bag.
There isn't really very much to say, it's an eyeshadow of a beautiful colour, should last a bit longer after applied but apart from that it does what it's supposed to do and grabs attention at the same time. It's honestly beautiful and I save this particular one for mainly special occasions such as parties etc.
