Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful Color
I've never tried an eyeshadow stick before and I think this was a great one to start with! This was so easy to apply and blend and looked absolutely beautiful. It lasted all day! The only downside is that I have super oily eye lids so it would wear a throughout the day but it wouldn't be anything crazy like everything being off. The color was just quite a bit lighter at the end of the day. I do wear my makeup for 12+ hours everyday as well. I didn't even realize until I put it on but it does have a slight shimmer to it. I love the color and the slight glimmer it has. I would definitely recommend this, but if you have oily eyelids, be mindful of the wearing. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of it coming off throughout the day. There were a few instances where my eyes would dry out by the end of the day that I've never experienced other than when using this product. This is only because of my oily eyelids bringing the product down into my eyes. When I have worn it a few times for much shorter periods of time, I didn't experience that. If you have oily eyelids just be cautious of some of those things that could happen!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sadly, no
I have used the powder Urban Decay Roach shadow as my go to I'm sure for a decade. My favorite shade of all time and without doubt most asked about and most complimented. My Ulta did not carry it when I looked and offered this now instead. Not even close in color pallet! Regardless of how much one uses, it fades out to a nondescript beige shade that is nothing special at all. Sheen even goes away. This was a huge disappointment, especially if the powder version is truly discontinued. Other than being an acceptable texture, this in Roach color is a no fly.

I have been looking for a quick, easy application eye shadow stick for a while. I had tried the shadow stick by Laura Mercier and was disappointed. These shadow stick by Urban Decay are far better. For starters, you get more product for the price, it goes on smoother and provides more coverage. I love a full glam eye as much as the next person, but for an everyday, quick office look, or "no makeup" weekend, this is a great option!

Such a beautiful shade and doesn't budge
Not a good formula
ilianam21 from undisclosed
The packaging and color were great. I had high expectations for it, but I was wrong. The formula was nice when it came to application, but when I tried to blend it out it would completely fade off and even when I left it by itself after an hour or two the majority of the color had faded. Compared to other sticks, this is was pretty disappointing.
Not bad, not amazing

I was so excited to try this shadow stick, especially since I already have their eyeliner and shadow single in the same shade. The product glides on smoothly and isn't stiff like some other cream shadows, which makes it easy to blend. While the application is easy, I expected the pigment to be more intense from an Urban Decay product. This could make a great base for the existing powder shadows in the same shades but it's too sheer to create a look without layering. I know trends are shifting to be more natural and this could give a nice wash of color, but I prefer a bolder look than that.

This is awesome. I've actually been looking for a product similar to this so this couldn't have come at a better time. The color is beautiful, not super glittery just right. It blends easily and then doesn't budge. Like I have a difficult time taking it off at night lol

Absolutely love this product. It goes on so smooth and doesn't budge once applied. I love the color they I received and I definitely plan on getting more! Works well with other eye shadows too for blending!
Literally does not budge

I have super oily skin and most stick products run off or crease up. This doesn't move! I do put a little powder over it for blending purposes but I am impressed and will be buying it in every color !
Makes eyeshadow easy
Alisha from Bakersfield
This is a very cute shadow stick, goes on well and easily blended with finger, only downside is that it is sticky, I have hooded eyes and I can feel the eyeshadow on my lid, I thought it would dry but had to put powder on top

This product has really great staying power and the color is beautiful! I love the convenience of a shadow stick. I personally like it for my lower eyelash line. Def recommend.

Love this shadow stick. Color glides on easily and is vibrant and long lasting. It's a great addition to my collection. Also love the green color, which is on trend. Can use it to add a pop of color. Not necessarily innovative but the colors are unique.
Creamy, non-irritating and lasts 24 hrs.
BIRD from Sitka Alaska
Very creamy and even with the bright colors, my eyes didn't start watering and itching. I got the lime green & blue. No glitter, thank you. My only complaint? The next morning it was still on & hard to wash off. Lol! Amazing!
beautiful, versatile, lasting
ericaw86de from undisclosed
Great product all around. Beautiful metallic color, smooth application, and super lasting. Since it has a pointed tip (and built-in sharpener!) I've even used it as a liner as well—and loved it too. Not a super glittery metallic, so great for day wear, and doesn't smudge one bit! Ordinarily might hesitate at the price, but as a shadow and a liner, totally worth it!

It's ok. It's not my favorite product. It doesn't seem to blend very well but it is pigmented. Not to sure how often i will use it just because it is a very dark color and if i can't blend it out, i can't use it.

I LOVE THIS COLOR!!
racquela from undisclosed
Normally I'm not a huge fan of Urban decay, there shadows can be chalky which is why I love this texture so much!! Easy to use! A little high of a price for a single shadow but worth it if your looking for a great emerald green

Overall, I did enjoy this product. The color is striking and metallic and lasts all day. The only difficulty I have with this item is it is difficult to blend so be mindful when applying. Additionally, the name "mildew" is not the most attractive name, but the color is definitely awesome!

As far as eyeshadow sticks go, this is a pretty good one. It goes on smoothly, it's super easy to sharpen, and the color payoff is impressive. My only complaint is that I found it difficult to blend, both with my finger and a brush. It lasts through the day and doesn't smudge at all, so all in all, I'd say it's a good product!
Very Pretty Color,But....

What I love about the shadow stick is that it is fade proof and waterproof. The color is so vibrant and I love how metallic it is. The issue with this shadow stick is it's very hard to blend out. Because of that you have to place it exactly where you want it because that's where it will stay.
who names a makeup "mildew"?
americankelin from undisclosed
The color is called mildew. That is a terrible name for a product. I was pleasantly surprised by the longevity. It stayed on all day in slightly humid Seattle weather and barely smudged. The color is beautiful in the crayon and I like the design with the twist push up and built in sharpener. However, the color wears darker on me - I thought it would be appropriate for zoom calls but it looked too smoky. Easily removed with micellar water.
smooth and long lasting

This product went on smooth and was long lasting. The color was brighter and shinier than I typically prefer but it was great for a more glam look.

I received this product from Influenster for free for a review. First of all I was very excited to get a urban decay product because I love their makeup products. Tried the eyeshadow stick and I was not impressed, blends well, the color is beautiful but I hate the sticky feeling on my eyelids every time I blink. Maybe is just me. Idk but I'm not impressed with this product.
Not my favorite
anastasiyaa from Charleston, SC
I was looking for an eyeshadow stick in copper-orangey colors. Then I saw a new launch from Urban Decay and the color I was searching for. I ordered "Hardfall" immediately. Unfortunately, I am not very satisfied with my purchase. In my opinion, the product doesn't have enough pigment and you need to layer it multiple times to see the color payoff. Also to me it looks darker and more dull on the eyelids than when I swatch it on the hand. I have no problem with longevity though. I think as for the eyeshadow sticks there are better options on the market.

It's a beautiful eyeshadow color! Love that you can use it as an eyeliner. It does last long on the eyes as long as its primed and prepped. I used it by itself in my lids and my oily lids made it wear of way quicker. it's kind of smudge proof but if you rub it way hard, some of it will come off.
katherineb35 from undisclosed
These shadows are super pigmented, long lasting, and very pretty! I love this shade of green. I wish I got to try some of the other colors because this green isn't an every day color for me but I think I will buy some of the lighter ones. I think this is a great product and would buy myself.
