FOTD + Review : Warrior Princess ft. UD Solstice (NEW)

I first saw Urban Decay’s Summer 2015 summer releases and, to be honest, wasn’t the most excited about it. Of course, there are new colours, blushes, lip products, etc, but I thought my collection of stuff was quite ample. That is, until I saw Letzmakeup use Urban Decay’s new Moondust eyeshadow in the shade Solstice (in this tutorial). Man oh man, it was stunning and went straight onto my wish list! Now it’s off my wishlist and onto my eyelids.

The shade is a particularly strong icy teal/pink duochrome. The base is pink and the reflects/glitter is teal. This differentiates it from duochromes like MAC’s blue-brown pigment, Bellapierre’s Java Pigment and the shade in WetnWild’s Comfort Zone palette.

Top-Bottom: UD Solstice, BP Java, WnW Comfort Zone

In the above picture, the marked differences are very obvious. The duochromes are as follows:

  • Solstice: Teal/Pink
  • Java: Green/Brown
  • Comfort Zone: Blue/Brown-Red

On its own, and when used dry, Solstice is somewhat sheer and has a tendency to cause fall out because the glitter separates and does not adhere well to the lid. It performs best either wet, or on top of a tacky base (or both)! In the look pictured below, I did my eyes prior to the rest of my makeup because I anticipated fall out (an accurate prediction) with Solstice, so it was easier to wipe that away and then do my face.
