Every time I use these shadows, I’m more amazed at the pigmentation. A fluffy brush on these shadows will get you into messy, fallout trouble. I think this look may be pushing it even for Freedom Friday’s. It could work if you kept the intensity lower on the lash line and faded the color up to the crease.
If you are a lover of matte shadows, consider these. The slight shimmer you see is in the pan is barely detectable to the eye. If you’re a shimmer fan, get over it and try these shadows out anyway.

Get This Look:
Apply your favorite base. The downside of using UD’s Primer Potion is that the shadows stick too much and makes blending exceedingly difficult. I’m forced to use a Paint Pot over the primer. I applied Soft Brown on my brow bone and upper crease. Soft Brown is close to my skin tone so I also used this shadow to soften the inner and outer edges of the Paint Pot. I applied Folie (medium reddish brown) to my crease and the outer corner of my eye with a stiff dome brush. I used a pencil brush to form the outer V using Plumage.
The fun part…I started off applying the green eye shadow (#477) to the center of my lid and blended it over to the inner and outer lid. I put the yellow shade (#474) to the inner corner and blended it up and over into the green shade. I repeated this process until it faded nicely. I did the same after applying the teal shade (#504) to the outer corner and blending it over into the green.
This look is the first time I used Urban Decay’s Perversion eyeliner. This is the blackest eyeliner I’ve tried. I typically use their Zero black liner and I thought it was pretty black, but wow. Flip side was applied to the lower lash line and smudge into the yellow. I also put a little of the black liner to the outer corner of my lower lash line.
I may have to give up on using these shadow pencils on my waterline. It burns and makes my eyes water and nose run. The burning sensation is more annoying than painful. If my eyes look red, that is why.
