Urban Decay’s Moondust Palette Swatched Four Ways!

Okay so from doing a lot of YouTube watching and review reading, I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews on this palette. A lot of complaints about fallout, not being pigmented enough and just people plain hated it. To be honest… I LOVE this palette! 

My dear friend Kristina helped me swatch this one after my doctor appointment today. We decided to swatch it four different ways to show how to play with the shades and their application. I did the normal finger and brush swatch and then on the back of the box it states, ‘Tip: We recommend applying Moondust with your fingers. For extra intense payout, apply it wet and blend out the edges with a dry brush’.

So with further ado, here are the pictures!

This cover is a hard plastic that imitates stars in the sky. It is a heavy and durable palette.
The back has just the basic information about the palette.
The palette is very simple and has an awesome mirror!

Here come the swatches! I’ll start with the finger and brush ones first!

As you can see, the finger application is the way to go with this one. The difference in pigmentation and fallout is insane. The brush is nice if you want something subtle but there’s not much of a pop.

The third in the list is using a wet brush.

You can see here that using a wet application does work but the brush still doesn’t do much justice to these shades just yet. :/

And the final…. wet finger swatch! Wait for the magic…

Boom! Yes! They look beautiful! The most amazing thing was that there was no fallout because it all went on the skin! They look vibrant and so beautiful!

Okay so there you have it! If you have this and we’re quite frustrated, use the wet finger technique! Xoxox
