I have super sensitive skin, too. I haven’t tried Urban Decay myself, but I was interested in their eyeshadow palettes. When I talked to the folks at Sephora about wedding makeup for sensitive skin, they recommended a brand called Lorac instead of Urban Decay — Lorac has a similar shadow palette, primer, etc., but they’re supposed to be better for sensitive skin.

I have sensitive skin and the only brand I have to avoid completely is MAC. NARS and Hourglass are my favorites for primer. Smashbox is my go-to for a longwear foundation, but my skin does react a smidge so it’s not a daily product for me. Yes, I traded a mild reaction for 14 hours of awesome coverage. Lancome and Dior are my runners-up (10-12 hours of durability for me), and they didn’t make me react at all. The setting sprays from Urban Decay are also great, and I have not had a reaction with them. I’ve tried All Nighter and De-Slick, both of which work well, depending on your needs.

It’s very heavy. Like, it’s a really thick makeup. So it gives great coverage, and I’m sure the eyeshadows have great pigment! But if heavy makeup isn’t good for sensitive skin, then you may want to do a trial on it. I don’t have sensitive skin, but I do have some Urban Decay, so that’s what I know. 🙂
