Being the beauty addict I am I can’t help but pay attention to the numerous beauty products that appear as props in movies…
to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is filled with beauty products which isn’t
surprising since Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) works at a top Women’s
magazine. Throughout the film Revlon appears with nail polishes and
advertisements in “Composure”. Later on we can see an array of products
that Andie has placed in Ben’s bathroom such as: Revlon Nail Polish, a
Stila Palette, and an Estee Lauder Cleanser.

I must admit when I first saw a visual of the new Urban Decay Moondust palette my heart started going a hundred miles a minute. Sparkle - yass!
Now most of us associate Moondusts with glitter. Shades that are meant for pressing over other shadows to add a little gleam and glamour. Not stuff to use on their own. But they CAN be used on their own. What I’ve done here is just to apply them wet. No primer, no other shadows beneath.
And they rock.
If you plan to use them in a more subtle way, just dab on with a finger. These shadows are formulated with silicone in the base, and designed to stick to skin, not brushes, when dry. So don’t complain about there being no pigmentation if you try to dust them on with a dry brush. Damp, these are incredible foiled shades with plenty of duochromatic magic. Every shade has a different color shift when it hits the light. Right click each image and “open image in new tab” to see everything in higher res.
I STILL think this is a palette made for “accessorizing” other shadows in your collection. Pop 1 or 2 shades on when you wear a neutral or matte smoky look. Kapow. But if you want to wear these shades all on their own go right ahead!
Gurrrl… you know they’ll see you bling from the moon.
