Urban Decay Double Ended 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil




I was absolutely thrilled when I received the Urban Decay Double Ended 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil from the lovely Ishah in our Christmas Blog Swap! (See the whole post here!)

Urban Decay is not at all readily available in Australia, so this was exciting for me! I've heard wonderful things about the 24/7 range, especially the eye pencils, so this was perfect for me!



The Double-Ended Glide On Pencil brings two shades to one pencil Zero and Whiskey, which means it is perfect for travelling! 



The double ended pencil in all it's glory!

See how convenient that looks? I love the idea of having two pencils in one, because it means I have to pack less in my travel bag or if I'm taking make-up to work with me. More choice taking up less space is definitely on my travel check list!



Zero

Zero is a deep black. It is ridiculously pigmented and looks absolutely amazing on both your lid and your waterline! The product is so creamy that it goes on like a cream eye-liner, which does mean it is easy to blend, but at the same time will stay put if you choose not to blend!



Whiskey

Whiskey is a rich brown, and is also fairly pigmented, although I wouldn't say it looks as rich on my eyes as Zero does. Whiskey is a really flattering colour, however, it looks really lovely on my eyes, again both on my upper lid or my waterline. 


Swatchola!

See how rich these babies are! Both colours are universally flattering, and can be worn on any occasion! 



After a minute, I smudged the two and this was my result. As you can see they have pretty good staying power, as I smudged pretty hard! 



Zero

As you can see, Zero looks great on my eye! The product was so creamy that it didn't tug at my lid at all, and it was extremely easy to apply! Even in the extremely hot days we had here in Melbourne just now, the product didn't melt or was too soft when applied, which is definitely a plus for me.

--

So overall, I really like this product. I did find that it did fade and melt a little bit on my eyes by the end of the day, but in saying that, we did have a 40 degree day (or something like that, at least!), and I think even the best of eye liners would have done that!

I've been wearing this today, in normal weather, and have had no problems whatsoever with the staying power! The colour has remained rich all day long, and stayed strong.

I have a feeling that I'll be using up Zero first, as I'm a sucker for black liner, but in saying that I will certainly not be ignoring Whiskey any time soon! I'm hoping this will be the first of many gorgeous Urban Decay liners I will own in my lifetime!

Have you tried the Urban Decay Double Ended 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil before? If so, what did you think?

  10. Must say I love all the UD products I have tried so far! I have one of these in black, but I've been debating buying more as there is a Sephora near me (I'm on holiday in KL) and would love some coloured liners...the problem is I already have too many!

    Great review, they certainly are great colours on you!
