The Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator launched today on the Belk website, and there’s been no hints or mention of the launch prior to it dropping on the Belk website.
It’s a really strange launch, and one I can’t help but think why did the design team think it’d be something consumers would want in 2020. It looks like something you’d see used in a Jessica Simpson or Britney Spears video back in 2001.
Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator
The Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator is a lightweight face and body illuminzer with ‘hyperfine duochrome glitter and pearlescent pigment’ which dries instantly for a full sparkle and glow for the body. With a weightless, multi-dimensional formula that can be applied all over from the body to the face.
– Apply with fingers for a more diffused, natural look.
– For more even application, use a sponge or brush.
– Make Moondust Glitter Liquid last up to 16 hours by spraying All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray after application.
The Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator is available in four shades:
Moonspoon – iridescent silver glitter
Barely Baked – hyper-metallic gold pearl
Midnight Blast – lustrous deep bronze pearl
Recharged – duochrome pink champagne glitter
Each of the four shades of the Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator are $29 and they’re packaged within a clear plastic tube, with holographic detailing on the tube and a pump dispenser.
I can’t get over these shades, which of course is just my opinion but these kind of colours are so dated and nothing like the high quality and unique launches we’re used to seeing from Urban Decay.
I can’t imagine there being many people that want to smear iridescent silver glitter or duochrome pink champagne glitter all over their limbs.
If there was a pale gold or champagne colour, they’d be such more wearable and similar to the Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils in that they’d add a lot of glow but a hint of colour too.
These four Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid Illuminator shades are so out there, and they look like the kind of product you’d expect to see in Claire’s and not on a mid-range beauty counter in a department store. In addition to these body illuminators, they also launched the Moondust Lip Eclipse range which also look like an early 2000’s throwback.
