Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette

Afterdark

Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.60 oz.) contains ten shimmery eyeshadows from white gold to deep navy. There are three “cult favorites” and seven “new” shades, and if you have a few palettes and singles from the brand, “new” might very well be “old.” I definitely noticed a few shades shared more than a few similarities to past releases! This palette is limited and edition and exclusive to Sephora with an online release date of December 20th and an in-store release date of January 27th.

The quality of the palette is good, and it is one of the better pre-made palettes from the brand in the last year. This is likely due to that their shimmers are often where they shine, and these are all very shimmery. All ten shades had good pigmentation, longer-wear (seven to eight hours), were easy to blend and apply to bare skin, and worked well with each other. You may find yourself reaching for other palettes or singles in order to get more variety in finishes and for highlighting/transitioning shades. The other downside is that the shift in some shades is quite subtle and definitely not noticeable on the lid. I’d also like to reiterate that Backfire looks completely different in this palette than the single I have from its initial release.

Alter

Alter is a bright, light gold with a strong, white base and a metallic finish. The color payoff was fantastic, while the eyeshadow had a denser, cream-like texture that applied well to bare skin and was easy to diffuse the edges without the color losing its intensity or opacity on the lid. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing.

Scene

Scene is a light-medium pink-coral with a warm undertone and warmer, golden copper shimmer. It had opaque color coverage that was true-to-pan, but the consistency was looser and seemed to have larger shimmer particles, so it was messier to use and didn’t apply as evenly as other shades in the palette did. This shade started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear.

Supersonic

Supersonic is a medium-dark coppery red with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. It had intense pigmentation with a cream-like, denser texture that worked best with a firm, flat synthetic brush. The color applied beautifully to the lid with even coverage and lasted for eight hours on me.

Sinful

Sinful is a bright, medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The color payoff was fully opaque, and it had a soft, dense texture that was smooth on the skin but had some sparkle to it, so there was a bit of fallout during application as a result. Otherwise, the eyeshadow applied smoothly and evenly to bare skin and didn’t crease until after eight hours of wear.

Off Duty

Off Duty is a medium-dark brown with warm, red undertones and a pearly sheen. This was one of the least shimmery shades in the palette, but it was still far from being matte. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a smooth, cream-like texture that was denser but not too thick or dense in the pan, so I didn’t have any issues getting color onto my brush. This shade started to crease on me after eight hours of wear.

Druggie

Druggie is a brighter, light-medium violet purple with subtle, cool undertones and a frost finish. It had good color payoff with a fairly smooth consistency, but it was a little denser and firmer in the pan, so it took more pressure to get the product to transfer onto a brush. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

Backfire (Afterdark)

Backfire (Afterdark) is a muted, medium-dark plummy purple with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The eyeshadow was nicely pigmented and had a soft, looser texture in the pan, so it did have some fallout during application but blended out easily. This shade started to fade noticeably on me after seven hours.

Lounge

Lounge is a rich, reddish-brown base with green-to-blue shimmer. It had good color payoff, while the texture was smooth, slightly dense but not stiff to work with. It did not feel as creamy or as thick compared to some of the other metallic shades in the palette. This shade is available on its own, and I think the color is comparable to the single, but it seemed to be a touch lighter/more shimmery. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Fringe

Fringe is a medium-dark blue-teal with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. (It is almost like “warm” teal.) It was intensely pigmented with a cream-like, somewhat dense texture that applied really well to bare skin. The blending could have been a touch easier, as this shade seemed more prone to staining and adhering strongly to the skin, so it took some extra effort to diffuse the color. I found the best way was to use a fluffy brush, pick up a bit more product, and then use that to diffuse rather than pulling and diffusing the initial laydown of color. It lasted for eight and a half hours, and without primer, it stained just slightly (but was gone by morning).

Paralyzed

Paralyzed is a deep navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was so cool-toned that it almost looked purplish at times. It had a firmer, denser texture that was best applied using a flat, synthetic brush for true-to-pan, opaque coverage. I was able to pick up product with a fluffy, natural brush for using it in the crease, but it definitely required some building to get the shimmer to really become apparent (I got more of the blackened navy base). It lasted well for eight hours on me.
