    Huge disappointment!

    I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay products, their eye shadows and liners in particular, but this product was a gigantic waste of money. Nearly all of the shades offered are available as pressed shadow, and the only difference I can tell between the two are one is loose and one's not and they come in different packaging. Same finish, same texture, same wear. If you took a fork to a pressed eye shado...read morew and pulverized it until it was in loose form, Graffiti Deluxe eye shadow would be the exact same product as Grafitti loose pigment. While having the same product released twice is annoying, what's truly offensive about this is that you get LESS product when you buy it in loose form, but they charge you more for it. Urban Decay lists the "fill weight" for their deluxe shadow as 2 and 1/2 grams (it's 1 and 1/2 grams for the regular shadow), but for the loose pigment it's only 1 and 1/5 grams. But it's $2-4 more. That's insane! The packaging on these is terrible too. The spill-resistant bottle makes it harder to use your own brushes to apply the powder than it should be and I hated working with the brush it came with. It's not terrible, but it's not as good as a "real" brush. It's really frustrating The only thing keeping me from giving this product a 1 is that the product itself, once you get it out and work with it, is perfectly nice. Silky, pigmented and long wearing, just like you'd expect from Urban Decay shadow. And the few colors it comes in that are unique to this medium are gorgeous. Protest (a dark green) is particularly fabulous, and you can only get it as a loose pigment or as a part of UD's Book of Shadows palette which is expensive (but worth it!). But apart from that I absolutely could not recommend these to anyone. It's just a waste of money. If there's a shade you like and you're set on having a loose eye shadow, I suggest seeing if it has a pressed counter part and then crushing it into a powder yourself at home. — 3 years ago
