Fall Collections 2008: Urban Decay Matte Eye Shadow in Electric

I'm not going to lie and say I wasn't disappointed when I heard about Urban Decay's Fall Collection. They are introducing some seriously ridiculously, gorgeous lippies this season which are outrageous and the Muse is busy, busy, busy testing away however I was crestfallen when I realized the eye shadow selections for Fall are all new matte colors.

Le sigh.

The Muse is sad.

I heart the general catalog eye shadows that made Urban Decay an absolute cult favorite! Shimmer, Sparkle, Shine, and Glitter! So Muse-like!

I remember when Urban Decay introduced the matte shadows and how many sighs of utter relief soon followed. I just don't happen to be part of the population that loves mattes so no sighing here!


I may be an itty bitty bit brokenhearted but Urban Decay definately made it up to me by introducing a new gorgeous, vibrant, popping aqua shade! The Muse is all over aqua! Psstt....don't worry we still have the Winter Collection to look forward too!

This Fall Urban Decay has extended the matte line of shadows with three new shades:

Taupe Brown


And my favorite....


Can you spell lust?

The Muse is lusting this shadow! Even though it's matte I'm still loving the fact that I can apply some and dose myself with some heavy duty sparkle and shimmer right on top to make my eyes literally pop out of my head!

Loves it!

Since I've never reviewed the matte shadows prior to this I'll give you a brief low down. They are extremely pigmented, wonderfully silky and easy to blend, and really bold and vibrant (did you expect anything else from Urban Decay?).

Urban Decay Matte Eye Shadow in Electric has "the Muse" written all over it baby! I did a rather outrageous aqua look with it this weekend and applied a ridiculously amount of MAC pigment in Mutiny right on top!

Pure perfection!

I'm loving this one and I'm slapping the Muse Approval on it for purchase!

Run to Urban Decay and Sephora to grab yourself a pot!

Blah, I don't care for matte eyeshadows. But Heist is rather appealing to me. I'll definetly have to run to Sephora to check them out!

I'm not one for mattes either.
I do like that teal, and I love the sparkle you put over it. Your brows have great shape, too.

What blush are you wearing?
