Recently, I ordered a couple of products from Urban Decay as I wanted to try out their glitter liners and moondust eyeshadows. Some people do not like glitter on their eyes, but I personally love adding glitters to my eye makeup so ever so naturally I was drawn to Urban Decay's heavy metal glitter liner and moondust eyeshadows. After playing with these at my local Sephora, I picked up Urban Decay's Heavy Metal Glitter Liner ($20) in Spandex and Midnight Cowboy, and Urban Decay's Moondust eyeshadow in Space Cowboy ($21).

These Heavy Metal Glitter Liners give me LIFE! I liked them when I swatched them on my arm, but I fell madly in love with them when I applied them on my eyes. Since these are "eyeliners" I am assuming that the glitters in them are eye-safe--just as much as I like glitters and sparkly eye makeup, I do not want to risk putting something toxic on my eyes.

I do not know where to begin with these glitter eyeliners because seriously they are gorgeous. Midnight Cowboy is a total must have, and now that I have this I cannot imagine my life without it!

In this photo, I have Midnight Cowboy on my inner lower lashline and I applied Spandex on top of my black eyeliner. I really love applying Midnight Cowboy on the lower lashline because it makes my eyes sparkle and you can see all that sparkle glory from 10 feet away, I kid you not. Some people are all about making their highlighters pop--well I am all about my glitters making my eyes pop like there's no tomorrow.

Next up is Urban Decay's Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy. I love the color, I hate how all that glitter just ends up everywhere on my face. It requires a good glitter glue and I just wish it didn't.

I actually really like the packaging of Urban Decay Moonduest Eyeshadow! Compared to MAC single eyeshadow (this is MAC Aquadisiac), you can see that the packaging is a tad bit larger but the pan size pretty equivalent and both contain 0.05 oz of product.

Here's a swatch of Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy. I love this peachy beige undertone with super sparkly silver/white glitters, and it sparkles so beautifully.

I thought it would be similar to Bobby Brown's Sparkle Eyeshadow in Cement and swatched it side by side, but Cement is darker and the sparkle is just not at all comparable to Space Cowboy. However, the sparkle itself was quite comparable to Makeup Forever's Diamond Powder #1, with Space Cowboy's glitter being slightly larger than that of Makeup Forever's. So if you were to combine Bobbi Brown's Cement with MUFE's Diamond Powder #1, I think you could get similar results to Urban Decay's Space Cowboy.

Since these photos were not doing any justice to the beauty of these products, here's a quick video. 



For this makeup look, I first applied Laura Mercier's single eyeshadow in Ginger all over the lid, and then patted on Space Cowboy on my lid. I used Etude eyeshadow in Muscle Mania on the inner corners, and applied Bobbi Brown's sparkle eyeshadow in Ballet Pink on my lower lashline.

I really cannot care for all that glitter getting into my eyes and on my cheeks, but it really is a beautiful color and it makes my eyes sparkle like a goddess so I can't help but reach for it. But I do need to invest in some really good glitter glue for this to become my holy grail product. Any suggestions? :)
