Urban Decay Flash Eye Shadow Review

Hi everyone,
Today I am going to be reviewing about one of the eye shadows from Urban Decay, called Flash. Flash, is a light subtle shade of purple which my sister chose for me as I am a fan of purples. They have a set of 86 versatile shades to choose from inclusive of the eight new shades that are launched. Coming to the color purple itself they have at least 8 shades of purple to choose from. The see through lid, makes the choice easy. Make sure your pick is right considering the amount of money that you would be spending. Flash is from the previous collection. If you are looking for a duo chromed purple, tonic is what you must be opting for.

My Experience with Urban Decay Flash Eye Shadow:

I was happy with my pick as this shade has not let me down so far in case of a mild subtle look or anything intense. I consider that to be by far the biggest advantage of this color as it works well for a dramatic fairy like look and for an intense smokey eye.

As it is more of an evening color, I wear it when I step out for an evening snack or a dinner. I was pampered with compliments when I had an intense eye makeup done when I paired this shade with two other shades which would be with an electric teal blue and black. An intense eye look is rare as far as I go but this was something that made me re-think!

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Urban Decay Flash Eye Shadow?
If you are looking out to explore with shades of purple, I would highly recommend this. It is not too flashy at all but eye catching. I will not repurchase the same shade but might buy another everyday single color eye pot from UD as I am highly satisfied with this one.

IMBB Rating: 4.5/5

Overall Verdict:
Not an everyday color to use. Perfect color to play around with for a party.

  1. @Garima, TY 🙂 and yea did thank sis a plenty after I was convinced that the colour works for me 😉 It sure is a perfect one for a girls night out! @Neha, On Hazel eyes it would look dramatic , would rock on them so true! Now, knowingly or unknowingly you stirred the thought of wanting to buy an amethyst coloured lens for myself or if not a pair of lens for cosmetic purpose 😛
