The Day I Became a Magician : Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow in Graffiti

Pros: lovely green, bold, bright, silky

Cons: expensive, vanishes quickly

The Bottom Line: I wanted to love this shadow, but it performed very poorly, hitting the road before I even got a chance to show it off.

It is hard being a color motivated person. I mean, if you want to torture someone who loves color, put them in a gray room with no light.

That is almost what it has been like living where I have lived. I mean, come ON! It has been the talk of our area for years how we always end up in the top five darkest areas of the US- as far as lack of sunshine goes.

The joke is that there is a big black cloud that hangs over our area.

So, when Sephora set up camp in our neck of the woods, it was like the cavalry had come! COLOR! TEXTURE! FREE AT LAST FROM BORING!

Okay, so here I was at the opening of Sephora last year covered in so much color that I looked like a refugee from Paint Ball Camp, and I decided to do a wild look on my eyes.

After all, Sephora is the big girl's playground so I decided to play. Over I ran to the Urban Decay counter. WOW- such BRILLIANT COLOR!

I am a makeup artist, with a rather large collection of colors at home, but to see this in person in our area, well, a celebration was in order.


HOW DOES GRAFFITI PERFORM?

I spied the URBAN DECAY display with the brilliant cyan color called PEACE (which I wrote a review of as well) and beside it was my beloved color I was still searching for- a beautiful true kelly green.

Eagerly I applied the PEACE, GRAFFITI, and FISHNET to my eyes and then began to wander through the store some more. It was an opening gala event so I had plenty else to look at.

Sephora is loaded with mirrors and makeup application stations so you can play with anything you want, so I was constantly checking my handiwork in the mirror.

There it was- the lovely cyan of PEACE, the fading violet of FISHNET, and, wait a minute- did I forget to put the GRAFFITI on? I looked, but there was no green on my eye at all.

I quickly reapplied the green again and walked around.

Checking the mirror, I was horrified- the green disappeared, but the other colors were still there- PEACE was vibrant as ever.

Stupid me decided to purchase PEACE and GRAFFITI anyway, after all, they might sell out.

So, home they went with me.

And back to the store went GRAFFITI.


WHAT IS GRAFFITI LIKE?

GRAFFITI is a lovely kelly color with pearlescent finish. It is silky texture, and seems very pigmented. However, it vanishes on me in under an hour. I have used it with every base I have, and beside PEACE every time, PEACE stays put with no problem and GRAFFITI , well it hits the road.


DETAILS

GRAFFITI comes in an oval container which closes with a push button. There is a mirror inside and a square of eyeshadow.

There is .09oz of product.

Price is $18

Here is the blurb about it from Urban Decay:

Deluxe Eyeshadow
Turn your eyes into opulent works of art with these vibrant, silky, and luscious to the touch, eyeshadows that feature couture-quality and cutting-edge color. Loaded with silky pigments, this sophisticated new formula provides the richest, most brilliant color imaginable. Truly intense and definitely incomparable, Deluxe Shadows are like an artist's palette for the eyes.


I no longer have ingredients to either of my Urban Decay shadows, I took one back and lost the other box that PEACE came in.


FINAL COMMENTS

I wanted to love GRAFFITI like I like PEACE, but it just is not performing as it should. Every now and then I try to reapply at Sephora, but the results are the same.

Clearly the formula is just not working for me.


You can find this shadow at
