On a recent trip to Sephora I picked up one of the Urban Decay Cream Shadows in Mushroom. I loved the asphalt grey color (described as gunmetal taupe with iridescent glitter on sephora.com) and recently I've been getting into cream shadows more so I wanted to give these a try.
I will say that cream shadows are a little harder to work with to get an even wash of color on the lids. For this one, I took the brush and dabbed a little on my lid and then blended out with my finger (the same way I do UD Primer Potion). I didn't use a lot so it was pretty sheer on the first swipe so I waited for the first layer to dry down and then I added another layer using the same method.
After both of those layers dried down I noticed that there were a spot here and there where my lid was still showing through so I took a synthetic concealor brush and dabbed a little shadow on the brush and patted it over the places that needed more coverage. I let it dry and it was perfect!
I LOVE this color and I think i'll be getting a lot of use out of it. Here's a look I did this past Saturday for my coworker's birthday party....
