Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Flash, also known as Underland in the Alice in Wonderland Palette
Accessorize Icon Eyeshadow in 2 - Ultra Violet
MakeUp Academy eyeshadow in shade 9 - pearl
|Clockwise from top: Urban Decay, MUA, Accessorize|
Of the three I think that the Accessorize and MUA eyeshadows are exact dupes with Urban Decay pulling slightly pinker and having less blue in it. As for the formula I find that the Urban Decay one is actually kinda sheer - which is very unusual for Urban Decay, with the MUA eyeshadow having the best pigmentation.
|L-R: Accessorize, MUA, Urban Decay|
Accessorize Ultra Violet Eyeshadow - This one has reasonable pigmentation and comes with 2.5g for £4.00. I find this one an exact dupe of the MUA shade mentioned. Both having more blue in than the Urban Decay shadow. Available from Superdrug and Accessorize.
MakeUp Academy Eyeshadow in shade 9 - Pretty much identical to the Accessorize eyeshadow, possibly slightly more pigmented. And also cheaper costing only £1.00 for 2g this is available from Superdrug. It is a pearl/frost finish, like the other two.
Urban Decay Flash Eyeshadow - Don't get me wrong, I am a massive fan of Urban Decay but with the other two shades mentioned above being so similar I wouldn't pay full price for this outside of my Alice in Wonderland palette. The price for a single eyeshaow is £13.00 for 1.5g at Debenhams. This shade is slightly more pink than the other two shades and needs a heavy hand to get a good colour payoff.
I hope this comparrison has been helpful to you, and just as a summary if I had to have only one of these three shadows I would chose the MakeUp Academy as they are all so similar and this is the cheapest.
