Sin

Urban Decay Sin Naked Your Way Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is another so-so offering from a brand that used to be known for their eyeshadow formula. All six shades were drier, thinner, and/or powdery, which made them best over a smoothing primer. They had light fallout and/or faded faster than typical. Even though Sin and Unlucky had some differentiation to my eye in the pan, they were very similar applied, so I did not see the value of having both in such a small palette.

Sin

LELimited Edition. $29.00.

Bad Habit

Bad Habit is a very light, almost white, beige with subtle warmth and a satin sheen.

  • Semi-opaque coverage
  • Somewhat thin, lightly powdery
  • Blendable, prone to sheering out, best with primer
  • Long-wearing (7 to 8 hours typical)

  • Wet ‘n’ Wild Lights Out #2 (PiP, ) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.06 oz. – $316.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “high-pigment” with “ultra-smooth color payoff with maximum blendability” while being long-wearing. The brand is confusing, as they claim “up to 12 hours.”

The majority of the shades I tested were pigmented–semi-opaque to opaque–with the matte finish having the most variance. The lighter matte shades tended to be thinner, more powdery, and sheerer as a result of those texture differences. The more satin-to-pearl shimmer shades tended to be thinner, too, and they sometimes applied more unevenly or had to be built up. The higher-sheen shimmer shades tended to be pigmented, lightly creamy, and blendable with good adhesion.

They wore between eight and nine hours on average, which is solid wear time but similar to a lot of other powder eyeshadows for me, so it wasn’t extra long-wearing in context.

In comparison to the last iteration of the brand’s eyeshadow formula, it did not feel vastly different. The mattes seemed a little thinner and a touch more powdery, while the shimmers were a touch thicker on average with some of the more pearl-like finishes having weaker coverage and felt too firmly-pressed into the pan and looked thinner on, so they weren’t as flattering to wear.
