Urban Decay Cream Shadows - Radium, Delinquent & Whipped

The Urban Decay Cream Shadows, have been some of my favourite eyeshadow bases for a long time. I have just re-found them, and really wanna share them with you guys. They are easy to get and pretty cheap as I think they've been discontinued for a while. They can cost anywhere between £2 and £7 on Amazon. For this you get 6.7ml or .2 US fl oz of product. 
I went with a couple of pretty vibrant shades, Radium and Delinquent as well as a more neutral colour; Whipped. I love the packaging of these, they come in what looks like a squeezey tube, but aren't. They all have a white doe-foot sponge applicator attached to the inside of the lid, and have the name written on the back on a colour-corresponding sticker. I've had these for a long time, and none of the stickers are anywhere near coming off. The clear parts are covered in sic-fi alien style silver swirls. 

Radium is a bright, metallic blue with faint shimmer. When applied the metallic properties definitely take over from the sparkle. It's a more teal/ocean blue than a powder/sky blue. 
Delinquent is my favourite shade, it's also the one I bought first. It's a bright metallic purple, with a nice amount of blue and pink micro glitter. The metallic aspect here again takes over from the glitter. It's a night-shade of purple rather than a pastel/lilac purple. 
Whipped is an extraordinary peach with gold shimmer, there's something about this shade that makes it so much more than a regular shimmery nude shadow. It's peachy and golden, it's a very beautiful Summer shade, with almost rose gold undertones. 
These have a lovely, blend able formula, however it does sit a little heavy, but they do wear well for a long time. They are very buildable and there are a huge variety of colours to choose from. If you're a nudes fan, there are colours ranging from the warm Whipped, to the cool toned Mushroom, or the brown Rehab. There's a HUGE variety of bright colours too, greens, pinks, purples, everything! 
Would I recommend these? Hella Yeah! They are pretty inexpensive, easy to find and theres a huge range of colours and tones to choose from, as well as them being relatively long-wearing.

  1. These are very pretty cream shadows! I have never seen this before, so I'm guessing they are discontinued? But nevertheless, they are very affordable, which means that I may give them a go! Found you via Meet Me on the Brightside Blog Hop!
