My Experience :
I am sure that this will not be a news to you lovely people that pastels are really IN this season. You can clearly spot the pastel shades not just in clothes, accessories or makeup, but even in hair color. Yes, wearing a pastel color in any form is a statement for summers. I opted for sporting pastel shade on my eyes to be a part of the current trend. So, let us check out a lovely pastel eye shadow done just right!!!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter is a lovely lavender shade with pink undertones. The eye shadow has a frosty finish, with silver micro-glitters. The color looks lovely in the pan, but its only when you swatch it you really get to see the beauty of the shade. Now a pastel shade can easily wash out medium and deep skin tones. However, Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter will look gorgeous on medium and dark skin tones as well. This is a perfect shade for all brown-eyed girls, who want to experiment with pastel shades this summer. You can wear the shade as a light wash on the lids or use it as a lid color in a beautiful eye look. And the shade is not only meant for summers. With a black base, you can easily rock Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter in other seasons as well. It will look the perfect party accent in a smokey eye. I am all ready to wear this shade for clubbing next time!!!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter has a soft and creamy texture. The shade goes on smoothly and blends easily as well. Though there is no fallout post the application, but while applying the eye shadow you will experience some fallout for sure. Since the eye shadow has evident micro-glitter, one would expect it to be too glittery. I was pleasantly surprised that the glitter disappears as soon as you start blending the eye shadow. However, you may also feel glitter moving around while blending. So, be careful so as not to get any glitter where it is not required. Because of this, the frosty finish of the eye shadow changes to a lovely shimmer finish, which is very wearable and comfortable on the eyes.
Since the company describes the pigmentation as sheer, I expected an ok color payoff. However, Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter has a decent pigmentation. However, it tends to lose its intensity while blending. So, you can definitely apply more to get the desired color on the lids. The eye shadow lasts for a long time with a primer on. You can easily spot the shade on the lids for at least 7-8 hours.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter comes in the most stylish eye shadow packaging ever. The compact is gunmetal in color, with a chrome finish. There is a transparent window that lets you see the shade, along with the shade name and color coordinated label on the back. The logo and slogan of Urban Decay is engraved on top of the compact. You can pop out the eye shadow pan to make your own custom Urban Decay palette.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Grifter is my loved eye shadow for the on-going spring and up-coming summer. It makes the entire look feel very fresh and apt for warmer seasons. Love wearing the pastel lavender on the eyes.
