Urban Decay Lounge Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Lounge Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “brick red with green shift.” It’s a rich, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a green-teal flash of shimmer on top that gives it a more metallic finish overall. It had good color payoff with a soft, buttery texture that worked well on bare skin and was easy to blend out. This shade felt slightly softer and not quite as dense as the other duochromes from Urban Decay in this launch. This shade was released previously in their older formula. Once upon a time, this shade may have been more unique, but now it is one of the most replicated duochrome shades. .
Urban Decay Sideline Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “gold with green shift.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed gold with a green sheen–the gold gets lighter and darker (more orange-gold) as you angle the shade. The shift is definitely visible on the lid, but I would describe it as a moderate duochrome effect. It had excellent color payoff with a creamy, smooth consistency that applied well and blended out beautifully. The color lasted for eight and a half hours on me.
Urban Decay Beware Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “warm brown matte.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The texture is very silky and finely-milled and has really good pigmentation. It doesn’t get powdery, but it wasn’t quite as blendable as anticipated. On me, it wore well for eight hours before creasing. This shade was previously released as a limited edition product. 
Urban Decay Riff Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “brown-nude matte with floating micro-sparkle.” It’s a brightened, orange-brown with warm undertones and a dusting of gold micro-sparkle. A few of the sparkles will land on the lid, but you’ll need a primer if you want to really keep them/see them on the lid as they tended to disappear as I blended the color on the skin. It was nicely pigmented with a soft, silky texture that was very blendable and easy to use. It stayed put for eight hours before creasing slightly.
