Product Musings: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew



Mildew...hmm sounds unappealing but eyeshadow in Mildew...likey!


Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew is an army green shadow, and like all green shadows, lends a certain mystery to the Muse's eyes. It seems that dark brown eyes and green eye shadow are a marriage most divine!

Mildew is pretty fantastic considering it doesn't have the heavy duty shimmer overload many Urban Decay shadows have. Hey, the Muse is all about tons of glitter but sometimes it's difficult to clean up! Mildew is deeply pigmented, silky smooth, blends like a dream, and doesn't contain any glitter, always a plus for the glitter haters of the world!

Pair it up with a lighter shade of green for a contrasting, popping eye look or use it on it's own with a bit of black liner on your bottom and lower lash line for a mysterious, alluring look!




However, you use it you'll be happy you hauled it as it's truly a great shade!

Do you have Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew in your stash?

Love it?

What are some of your absolutely favorite Urban Decay Shadow shades?

Tell the Muse!

This is the color that started my Urban Decay shadow obsession. I got a sample of Mildew & Midnight Cowboy and haven't looked back since.

Hey Muse,
Mildew was one of the first UD shadows I bought. I have the single e/s plus one that comes in that palette that we all know and love :D Mildew is definitely one of my favorite colors. It blends easier than my green MAC colors - so it's one of my HG eyeshadows.
What are some other UD shadows I like? They're Maui Wowie, Sin, Hotpants, Vert, Shattered, Grifter, Kiddie Pool, Half-Baked and almost ALL of the Deluxe Shadows! Have you tried Maui Wowie? I've never seen anything like it - it's such a captivating color...tell me what you think :D

I love all the UD shadows but Mildew is definitely one of my faves. Like you I have brown eyes and love noting more than a green smokey eye and mildew is perfect for that. I have almost finished it in the Ammo palette and can't seem to track down the full size anywhere, my local counters are always out of stock of it and it doesn't pop up that often on eBay. Great pick if I do say so myself :o)

hi roxii!

Mildew is a fav of mine too..it's so fab for a smoky green look :) it does blend easier than mac..it has an almost fluffy like texture.dunno if that makes sense but It feels so silky on!

Love love mau wowie :) kiddie pool too and grifter...I love midnight cowboy, and midnight cowboy rides again and cherry, all of the deluxe shadows too! I have almost every shade of UD shadow hehe!

Maui Wowie was one of the first, last shadows :) It was released one spring and after that for a long time UD failed to release anything :) so I remember it well. I actually love it even more than Midnight Cowboy..it's so sparkly and golden! yummie!
