The formula is quite smooth for glittery eyeshadows, they don't feel gritty or chunky! They are a bit more sheer than I expected, the pigmentation is great but they look so much better with a primer.
The best way to apply the Moondust eyeshadows is with your fingers. They can be worn wet or dry as well! For a super intense color payoff, apply a tiny drop of MAC Mixing Medium (it can be the Water Base or the Eyeliner formula) on your lids and immediately apply the eyeshadow with your fingertips. Trust me, the sparkly finish will be out of this world!
For your information, the eyeshadows are smaller than a full-size Moondust eyeshadow. This palette contains 8 shades (0.7g each) for a total of 5.6g, while a full-size Moondust eyeshadow retail for $25 CAD for 1.5g. So basically, this palette has a value of $93 CAD. The price is a bit steep compared to other Urban Decay palettes but if you love the Moondust formula and want to buy many shades, I think this is a great deal!
Honestly, I rarely wear glittery eyeshadows but the Moondust palette is a nice addition to my makeup collection. This palette is all I need to satisfy my glitter cravings!
