City Decay Bare Cyber Eyeshadow Palette Evaluation & Swatches

Naked Cyber

Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest in the Naked range and is supposed to centered around duochrome eyeshadows, which are ones that have shimmer that shifts between two colors, but the majority of the included duochromes were weaker than what we’ve seen from Urban Decay in the past, let alone what other brands (indie and mainstream) are doing.

It’s also puzzling why the palette is so incredibly light-leaning, which has been an issue with more Naked palettes than not, but duochromes often sing over darker bases, so the lack of a matte black eyeshadow alone has me scratching my head. The quality was all over the place, but it was generally weaker with drier, flakier shimmers that had fallout, poorer coverage, and weak duochrome shifts, while the mattes were thin, somewhat powdery, and more prone to fading.

Despite not being surprised at all that this palette was a miss, I still am baffled by why the quality and consistent of Urban Decay’s eyeshadow has become what it has. There are lots of brands at similar price points putting out better quality products, and given how competitive and oversaturated the industry is, it doesn’t make sense to keep offering dud after dud products. How many of us are expecting a flop rather than a hit? The continuation of disappointing releases damages UD’s reputation and that can be hard to recover from.

AI

AI is a light, golden beige with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a very powdery, thin texture that felt a little dry and was prone to sheering out to the point where the shimmer came away from the more matte, powdery base. It had semi-sheer coverage, which did not build up and did not improve over primer. It started to fade after six hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.06 oz. – $316.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “high-pigment” with “ultra-smooth color payoff with maximum blendability” while being long-wearing. The brand is confusing, as they claim “up to 12 hours.”

The majority of the shades I tested were pigmented–semi-opaque to opaque–with the matte finish having the most variance. The lighter matte shades tended to be thinner, more powdery, and sheerer as a result of those texture differences. The more satin-to-pearl shimmer shades tended to be thinner, too, and they sometimes applied more unevenly or had to be built up. The higher-sheen shimmer shades tended to be pigmented, lightly creamy, and blendable with good adhesion.

They wore between eight and nine hours on average, which is solid wear time but similar to a lot of other powder eyeshadows for me, so it wasn’t extra long-wearing in context.

In comparison to the last iteration of the brand’s eyeshadow formula, it did not feel vastly different. The mattes seemed a little thinner and a touch more powdery, while the shimmers were a touch thicker on average with some of the more pearl-like finishes having weaker coverage and felt too firmly-pressed into the pan and looked thinner on, so they weren’t as flattering to wear.

Meta Data

Meta Data is a light peach with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It seemed like it might have wanted to go slightly greenish in its shift, but I couldn’t really find it in person. The texture was more loosely-pressed, drier but had it was a little thicker and yielded opaque coverage. It applied evenly but had light fallout during application. This shade lasted well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Virtual

Virtual is a light orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was prone to sheering out due to the drier, thin consistency that was moderately powdery. There were signs of fading after six hours of wear.

Electrode

Electrode is a light-medium orange with warmer, yellower undertones and flecks of purple and gold micro-sparkle over a frosted finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the texture was firmer, somewhat stiff, and harder to pick up evenly with a dry brush. I know what kind of shift this should have been… but it wasn’t there at all. It wore well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Cyberspace

Cyberspace has a light, tangerine orange base with contrasting green-to-blue shifting pearl. It had opaque color coverage with a strong shift, which made it one of the better shades in the palette. The texture was thin, slightly dry, but it was blendable and didn’t sheer out too readily. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Gadget

Gadget is a very light orange-leaning coral with a matte finish. The consistency was quite powdery with a thin, drier feel that resulted in fallout and the color sheering out from semi-opaque to semi-sheer. It wore decently for six hours before fading a bit.

Call IT

Call IT has a medium-dark pink base with warmer undertones and cooler pink and gold shimmer that gave it a frosted finish. The texture was firmer, stiffer, and somewhat dry, which resulted in a more semi-opaque level of coverage that had some fallout during application. While applying with a fingertip improved coverage and adhesion, it further compacted the eyeshadow in the pan, which made it harder to use the next time. It lasted for seven hours before fading visibly.

Not a Bot

Not a Bot is a light, pinky-mauve with warmer undertones and a shiny, sparkling finish. It had sheer color coverage, which did not build up without using it pressed on a tacky base with a fingertip. The texture was dry, chunky, and very prone to fallout. There was very little that translated to my lid dry, and then most of it had dropped off my lid within a few hours of wear.

Static

Static is a silvery-blue base with dimensional shimmer that contrasted between pale blue and pale green, though it was less shifty as it was merely contrasting pearl/micro-sparkle. The texture was drier, almost chunky to the touch, and firmly-pressed into the pan, so I had to jab at the surface to dislodge product at all. I’d recommend using this with a dampened brush as a fingertip further compacted the powder into the pan, which made it more difficult to use the next use. It had sheer coverage, which did not build up well, that stayed on for five hours and had moderate fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.06 oz. – $316.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “high-pigment” with “ultra-smooth color payoff with maximum blendability” while being long-wearing. The brand is confusing, as they claim “up to 12 hours.”

The majority of the shades I tested were pigmented–semi-opaque to opaque–with the matte finish having the most variance. The lighter matte shades tended to be thinner, more powdery, and sheerer as a result of those texture differences. The more satin-to-pearl shimmer shades tended to be thinner, too, and they sometimes applied more unevenly or had to be built up. The higher-sheen shimmer shades tended to be pigmented, lightly creamy, and blendable with good adhesion.

They wore between eight and nine hours on average, which is solid wear time but similar to a lot of other powder eyeshadows for me, so it wasn’t extra long-wearing in context.

In comparison to the last iteration of the brand’s eyeshadow formula, it did not feel vastly different. The mattes seemed a little thinner and a touch more powdery, while the shimmers were a touch thicker on average with some of the more pearl-like finishes having weaker coverage and felt too firmly-pressed into the pan and looked thinner on, so they weren’t as flattering to wear.

Y3K

Y3K has a medium, reddish-plum base with warmer undertones and blue-to-purple shifting pearl. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered fairly well to bare skin, though the texture was somewhat thin, so it was better applied over a primer, which gave it better hold. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Override

Override is a darker, coral-red base with flecks of green, red, and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a drier, chunkier texture that would be best applied with a dampened brush (with an adhesive spray of some sort, ideally!) to ensure it kept its coverage, applied evenly, and didn’t have tons of fallout. It wore decently for seven hours but had moderate fallout over time.
