City Decay x Marvels Eternals Eyeshadow Palette Evaluations & Swatches

Eternals

Urban Decay Eternals Marvel Studios Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay Eternals Marvel Studios Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette for the holiday season that included seven (mostly) matte shades complemented by eight shimmery shades. I found the quality to be all over the place, but oddly, the mattes were harder to blend out; sometimes Urban Decay’s matte eyeshadows are powdery, but they tend to blend out fine, so it was unexpected. The shimmers tended to be drier or sheerer and would be more usable for someone who always uses their shimmer eyeshadows wet.

In a way, it’s exactly what I feel like I’ve come to expect from Urban Decay’s eyeshadow palettes these days but that’s still a little tough to accept at times.

Cosmic Blast

Cosmic Blast is a bright beige with warmer, yellowy undertones and a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage paired with a moderately dense, slightly stiffer texture. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.

Family is Eternal

Family is Eternal is a light, pinky-coral base with lighter gold shimmer throughout. The texture was firmer in the pan, not so much dense as it was drier. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but had light fallout during application. This shade lasted decently for seven and a half hours fading a bit.

Immortal Warrior

Immortal Warrior is a light gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture felt drier and stiffer to the touch, which made it harder to pick up product evenly with a brush and led to fallout during application. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Strength

Strength is a light, bright copper with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was dense enough to hold all that sparkle and prevent fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

In the Shadows

In the Shadows is a deep black with subtle, warm undertones and contrasting gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had a stiffer, thinner texture that was really hard to blend out. I had to pat it into place and then pick up more product each time to continue applying the color to an area as it wouldn’t spread at all. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation and lasted well for seven hours and had moderate fallout over time.

Devotion

Devotion is a light peachy-brown with warm, more orange undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier, thinner, and somewhat powdery, which made it more prone to applying unevenly to bare skin or over anything with tackiness/natural slip (e.g. oils on my skin). It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Astrolabe

Astrolabe is a medium, warmer brown with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle resulted in some fallout but little impact on the lid as they didn’t bind with the matte base. The texture was soft, thin, and somewhat powdery. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Grain of Sand

Grain of Sand is a light, yellowy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, lightly powdery and thinner. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Famous

Famous is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a thinner, drier texture that was hard to blend out and took more effort than most of the brand’s neutral mattes to blend out. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Merciful

Merciful is a medium grassy green with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer to medium pigmentation, which only built up to higher coverage if applied with a dampened brush as the texture was firmer and drier. It lasted well for seven hours before fading a bit.

Genius

Genius is a lighter purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was thinner, stiffer, and really only worked decently when used with a dampened brush. It had medium coverage that did not build up well and was more prone to fallout. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Soaring

Soaring is a darker, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. It felt like a cream-powder formula, as it was very dense and stiff, but it had opaque color coverage. I found it a real challenge to pick up product evenly, and I had the best luck using smaller, very dense/stiff brushes and avoiding having to blend it much. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Sonic Boom

Sonic Boom is a darker, reddish-copper matte base with flecks of gold micro-sparkle. The sparkles did not adhere to the lid, so they disappeared in my brush or resulted in fallout. The base had opaque color payoff, while the consistency was soft, somewhat powdery but blendable. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
