Question
Has anyone compared the new formula of Midnight Cowboy to the old formula?

Answers
answer 1
I haven't tried Midnight Cowboy but I did try Maui Wowie (a shade I used to find virtually unwearable). The new formula is better but still not great - there is glitter fallout but it's just less chunky and finer. The texture of the shadow generally is smoother and less gritty (because of the finer glitter, I'm guessing). If Midnight Cowboy's reformulation is similar, expect some annoying fallout still.

answer 2
do not get the new formula if you loved all the glitter the old formula has. this new formula seems more like a shimmer and it doesn't have all that glamour of the old one. like everyone else said, there's going to be "fall out" either way, but if the glitter was important to you (like it is to me) search down the old formula on urban decay's website before it sells out. there's a lot of anti-glitter people here on sephora for some reason, but if you're pro-glitter, stay far away from this new formula.

The glitter in all of the new ones is finer and therefore has less fallout. It's still there, but not as abvious as the old formula, and it's easy to wipe away with a cotton ball.

i highly prefer it in the new formula, honestly. the glitter in the old formula made the shadow a bit gritty for me, but that's totally gone with the new formula. i also feel like you get more color payoff from the new formula, too, without having to apply as much. the glitter in it still goes everywhere, just like with the old one, as the previous reviewer said, so no change there, but i do feel that the glitter stays in place better with the new formula.

if you seriously need this color, buy it. if you're wanting to try others, though, i'm with the previous reviewer, and suggest trying other palates. if you're like me though, and you know what you like (and will never use 85% of those wild colors) just get what you want!

Yes Ive tried both. It is creamier, less powdery, more pigmented, less fallout. You will still have fallout, but its less. You will still need a piece of tp under your eye when you apply to catch fallout. I dont think its worth buying a shade in the new formula if you own it in the old, just my opinion. Try something new. Have you ever used sellout, midnight rodeo, or vanilla if pale skin? Also keep in mind that several UD palettes already have the new formula; 15 yr ann, mariposa, naked 2, the recent book of shadows. If you want a color, but you can find it in one of those, it might be better to get the palette (selection and money). Unless it is your all time favorite shade, I dont think its worth it. Sorry, my opinion and Im being honest. I do think the new formula is worth trying, its nice. Id just get it in a color I didnt own and in a color that I couldnt get in a palette.

I've always heard to go with the color complementary on the color wheel to your eye color to make it "pop." In your case I would probably choose a shade with some orange/coral tones in it, with some sort of tan/nude/khaki to offset the grey color. You can also try using colors complimenting the color of your eye. Like a blueish shade close to your own. I don't know if this works as well. I tend to stick with the complimentary color method since that's what works in the art world to make things stand out.

I'm fairly certain that all the shadows marked with a paw print are vegan. I buy my shadows in store, so the paw print is next to the name below the samples. Not sure how the vegan shades are demarcated online but I'm sure there is a list.

Yes! They pop out quiet easily. Sephora carries the "build your own palette" in a 4-pot version, and Urban Decay's website carries a 6-slot. You should be able to fit them into any master pro palette though.

I think that if you want a bronze look smog in the crease and dark horse in the outer corner looks really good with a matte highlight color. Half baked also looks good with buck in the crease as well. I would also look at some of the naked palettes that have half baked in them because you can get some more inspiration, but thats what i wear with it.

Half baked is a very shimmery kind of color so I would recommend a darker shade of brown like dark horse or fawn. If you're feeling brave pair it with an even darker shade. It works well on its own too! I'd say use a brown liner for your eyes for an every day look and black for when you're looking to out clubbing :]

Question
Are these shadows good for contact wearers?
I went to see my eye doctor today and she said I should avoid makeup that is not good for contact wearers and especially because my eyes are so dry. She said to especially avoid waterproof makeup and glittery because it does not dissolve in the eye and may get pushed around in my eye, causing scratches, which she said I had a lot of in my eyes.

I recently began wearing contacts and have had no problem whatsoever with Urban Decay eye shadows. I do not wear glittery eye shadows so I cannot speak to that. My ophthalmologist recommended avoiding loose mineral shadows, and I can understand why. Not an issue with Urban Decay. Try it on in the store and see how it works throughout your day before purchasing.

Take a look because many of the UD shadows have huge chunky glitter in it or small specs of glitter so at least just make sure you don't get those colors w/ the glitter chunks. Urban Decay's website breaks down each color about its consistency and glitter contents.

Purples and browns for sure! You have to be a little careful with warm tones though- I have cool undertones for my skin and warm eyeshadows look very strange, especially coppers. I imagine warm undertoned people might have the opposite problem.
