A while back in my Oil Slick review, I mentioned that I got that shadow steeply discounted and packaged with another shadow. This is that shadow. I got those two together for ten bucks at Sephora, and I think I got an additional 20% off of that, as well.
So glad. I would not pay for this again. While in some of my other reviews of discontinued Urban Decay shadows, I mentioned that it was sad that you couldn't get them anymore, this? I'm glad you can't accidentally waste your money on this. It's just terrible.
While Oil Slick was a touch dry--as expected from a matte textured shadow--this takes it a few steps further. It's all but full on hard. The color comes away decently, I suppose, but I really do prefer a shadow be pleasant to the touch.
Doesn't it look gritty, even in the pan? Ugh.
As if the hardness wasn't bad enough, the glitter is large and piece-y. I'm all about the glitter, usually, but I swear, with this shadow it will fly all over the place. I'm talking on your cheeks, in your eye, behind your ear. It's like the glitter is knowingly going everywhere except where you put it. Not good, shadow.

- Wears well enough when you get it on.
- Texture. It's awful. Hard-ish. Not smooth at all.
- Difficult to blend.
- The glitter. Goes. Everywhere.
- No longer available.
This is no longer available. Good riddance.
