Silky Soft & Buttery mattes

I am currently in love with Urban Decay's matte eyeshadows. To put it simply - UD's mattes are heaven for your eyelids!
These shadows do not fail to impress with their ultra silky soft, creamy and smooth texture that goes on like buttah and blends like a dream.
They seem to be very finely milled and pigment rich with excellent lasting power...and no chalkiness in sight!!!

The range of colours is a bit limited but great nonetheless with some pretty awesome earth tones.
Here are swatches of some of the colours that I own - applied without a primer:
Left to Right: ABC Gum (pale peach), Naked (buff nude), Illegal (smoky rose), Shakedown (taupe), Secret Service (medium brown)

Left to Right: Revolver (stone grey), Heist (dusty purple), Cult (eggplant), Purple Haze (bright purple)

Urban Decay's mattes are perfect for the sexiest and most drop dead gorgeous smokey eyes around!

Have you tired any of these mattes?


  1. I've never tried any matte shades from UD, I usually go for their glittery ones. I'll look for them next time! Thanks for the post!

  2. I haven't tried any of the UD matte shades except what came in their Naked Palette..I always swatch ABC gum and think it would be pretty to buy but have yet to purchase it. I love UD eyeshadows though.

  5. Hey I just came across your blog. I am very intrigued by your about me section. What is a beauty therapist? Sounds so cool.
    Ive tried so many urban decay shimmering powders and find they have too much glitter in them. I will have to give their matte shadows a try.
    If you get a chance, please check out my dare you to wear challenge. I am challenging my subscribers to recreate a look from the derek lam fashion show (pics on my blog). I will be doing an updated post showing what everyone came up with.
    I am also currently having my August giveaway.
