I don’t know about yall, but I am over MAC‘s limited edition collections. Who has the time (or memory!) to remember to get online the second a new collection launches to be able to get something? Not this girl! NOT. THIS. GIRL. For one thing, I like to swatch makeup before I buy it, so I really don’t like buying eyeshadow online.
I saw a shade that I really liked from their recent LEDISKO Dazzleshadow collection called Boom Boom Room. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, (which you totally should) you will remember when I posted about missing out on this shadow. I was devastated, I went to 3 different MAC stores trying to find it.
I am not sure how to even describe this color, but I saw the posters and ads before it even came out, and I knew I had to have it. MAC describes it as light burgundy with emerald sparkles.
No hard feelings MAC, but I found a shadow just like it (if not better). Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice.
Tell me this is not the prettiest eyeshadow you have ever seen.
It’s got a duo chrome finish to it, so different angles and lights give it a different color and appearance. Sometimes it looks gold, sometimes it looks bronze, and sometimes it looks red/pink.
Here it is in the sunlight.
I am a BIG FAN of these shadows, I own a couple of other colors as well and they are amazing. They are chock full of glitter and sparkle.
I always have to make sure to wear a primer and do my eye makeup first when using this shadow, as it does give some fallout. That is to be expected when using such a glittery shadow. I find it works best being applied with my fingertip also.
I’m so glad I found this shade!
Thanks for reading!
