Urban Decay Moondust Palette Review & Swatches

Oh hey, you know me... always late on the bandwagon. This eyeshadow palette was released in late 2016, it's now 2018 and I've only just tried it out. Well, I actually got it for Christmas, so I only got it a year late. Not bad if I say so myself. If you've been following my blog for a while, you'd know that I love Urban Decay and that I love glitter - so of course I had to ask Santa for this. 

This palette features eight brand new shades:
Specter - soft pink glitter (this is very similar to the shade 'dust' in the Naked 3 palette, here)
Element - a coppery, peachy glitter
Magnetic - purple with blue sparkle 
Lightyear - vibrant green glitter
Granite - silver/grey shade with multi-coloured glitter
Lithium - brown with 3D sparkle
Vega - bright blue glitter
Galaxy - smokey blue/grey with 3D sparkle

As these shades are glitters, I was worried about there being so much fallout. BUT, there was no need for me to worry. I had a few sparkles under my eyes after applying but it weren't anything major and it was super easy to wipe away. I do my eye makeup before applying my foundation for that particular reason and if you do need to wipe anything away then you can easily.

When I first got the palette, I didn't think that I'd wear every shade or even use the palette that often. But I have used it quite a few times already.
I tried out the application of the shadows both wet and dry. If you use these shadows dry, it gives more of a subtle look. If you use these wet, they just apply so much easier and they're more vibrant and intense. I found that wetting your finger and patting it on works better than using a wet brush as well. These shades are so highly pigmented and your eye makeup will last hours, I don't think I could be anymore in love. 

Have you tried the Moondust palette?
