Urban Decay Eyeshadows for Spring 2013 Review, Photos & Swatches

Urban Decay recently introduced seven newly reformulated Urban Decay Eyeshahows ($18) with their spring 2013 launch. These new eyeshadows are beyond creamy and full of pigmentation! Easily the best shadows I have tried to date.

Some of these single eyeshadows are from previous palettes but some of them are brand new. Heartless, Uncut, and Snare are all new; while Omen and deep end are from the 15th Anniversary Palette, faint is from the Naked Basics Palette and Sidecar is from the Naked Palette.

I cannot tell you enough how amazing these shadows are. Urban Decay shadows were already my favorite and after re-formulating their complete eyeshadow collection there is no other shadows that comes even close to competing with them. At least that I have personally tried. They have such a buttery smooth feel to them, they glide on with effortless blendability and are richly pigmented!

As for packaging, they come in Urban Decay’s new single compacts with a transparent lid and the ability to pop out and be placed in their new 6-pan palettes.

Overall, I highly recommend picking up a few, or even all, of these single shadows. They are beautiful colors and I am sure that you will not be disappointed in the quality of them.

Have you tired any of these beautiful new shadows? Which one is your favorite?

    A Mom's Take

    Those colors are so pretty! I wouldn’t be bold enough to go for the deep turquoise but it is so rich and vibrant.


      i love deep end and if you ever wont to try out any bold colors you can start with just adding a bit right under your bottom water line. Or instead of using black or brown liner to line your eyes, try a bold color. That way you get that beautiful pop of color without feeling like its to bold for you.

    i love that heartless color!! gorgeous!! i like creamier shadows too. powdery ones make a mess


      heatless is a great pink and i too like the creamy shadows not the powdery ones that cause fall out.


    I love faint. That’s the color I normally wear though so maybe I should branch out for a change.

    I’ve heard of this brand and haven’t tried it, but I need to now since the colors are gorgeous!


      you must try Urban Decay! Their products are amazing and I am sure you wont be dissapointed by them and yes their colors are gorgeous!


    I’ve actually never tried Urban Decay. About how long does one of these last you with daily use?


      you must try Urban Decay! Their products are amazing and I am sure you wont be dissapointed by them. How long does one of the shadows last? I have yet to ever hit pan (the bottom) of any of these shadows, but I do have a lot of them to rotate through. They last a long time and are a good size!


    Faint, sidecar and snare!! Love each of those and I have never bought this brand either. I would love to try it though.


    Such pretty colors! I’m making a trip out to buy makeup soon and will have to pick up a few of these. They’d be perfect for spring and summer brights.

    I really want the color “Deep End”. So rich and pretty!

    Love the Omen and Uncut colors. These might just have to be added to my make up bag.
