Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sellout

Hi Dolls!

I love a good champagne eyeshadow, and I have more than a few. A great one that I use as my go-to highlighter is Sellout, by Urban Decay. I really adore Urban Decay; they don't test on animals, and a lot of their products are vegan- unfortunately, Sellout is not, so if you're vegan, beware! They'll run you $17 for .05 ounces of product, and they're available from Urban Decay's website, counters at some Macy's stores, and most Sephoras. These eyeshadows are great; they're soft without being powdery, they're incredibly pigmented, and they blend like nobody's business. If you haven't tried these out, you really should; they make some great palettes, too, which are always a great value.

Sellout is a pink-toned champagne color; it's not as intensely shimmery  as some of their shades (like Sin, for instance), but it has a shiny, pearlized finish. It's pretty all over the lid with a dark cat eye, strong brow, and red lip for a retro look, but I usually use it as a highlighter under my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eye, which is how I am wearing it in the pictures that follow.

Sellout; you can see that I've made a serious dent in this! 

 I've got Sellout from above the crease up to the brow bone, and in the inner corner of my eye in the following pictures:

More sellout! Shiny, but not too crazy...

I love this eyeshadow! It's a great formula, and a really versatile color, even if it's nothing exciting. It's been a great, if under-appreciated addition to my makeup arsenal. I like that it catches the light without being shinier than most of my eyeshadow formulas; I hate when a highlighter outshines (literally!) everything else on your eyes, but it still has to do its job and highlight. Sellout delivers! Plus, I feel like it's neither too gold/ yellow or too pink to be really flattering on my skin tone; I think it's a shade that would flatter a lot of different skin tones.


  1. Beautiful color, I love pinks!

    I also love Grind by UD, but it's too glittery!

    Cherry is also a nice shade, but it's such a light pink that it doesn't really even look pink once applied.

  2. What an awesome highlight colour and a great neutral! I may have to pick this one up.....
