Did you know, that you get a free birthday gift from Ulta, if you sign up for Ultamate Rewards? This is absolutely free! This year's birthday gift is the Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy eyeshadow, which retails for $19!

I have not tried the single eye-shadows by Urban Decay yet and so I was pretty excited. I adore the cute purple tin. I could not help myself, but swatch it instantly. Initially I really loved the champagne shimmery color- this is the perfect light shimmery color for us "hooded" girls (if you can´t see the crease of your lids) to make them appear a little more open (read also: tips how to apply eyeshadow on hooded eyelids)

But after about 2 uses, the eyeshadow revealed so much freaking glitter! I was so surprised by that! Now if that glitter would stay on my lids, I would not have a big problem with it. But unfortunately it falls down right under my eyes! All full of glitter. I don´t want to have glitter under my eyes!

I have to say: the color would have been so perfect, IF it would have been without glitter! I don´t understand why the glitter revealed itself after 2 uses and not on the first application- it is really hidden under a thin layer of gorgeous eyeshadow.


Too bad. But hey: it was for free! ;-)
