I'm a sucker for matte eye products so when I heard UD came out with a black matte pencil I had to try it. It really is one of the blackest black eye pencils I have ever tried. That being said, it reminds me of MAC feline eye kohl. It's a soft pencil and when applied it's a deep black but it smudges. When I apply it on my top water line it ends up all over my under eye area in a matter of hours. Even when I set it with powder. I'll use it on my top eyelid but that's about it.
I wanted to love Perversion, really. It swatched beautifully and it is truly the blackest carbon black I've ever used. It goes on smoothly, very creamy, and works well as in tightlining.
HOWEVER, as a contact user, it definitely doesn't work. And I definitely cannot use it to tightline. It slid off and pooled into my eyes within half an hour, blurred my vision and deposited on my lower lashline and around. Hard to fix because it is so pigmented (which would have been amazing had it not been such a pain to fix).
All in all, a beautiful black if it works for you, but if you're a contact lens wearer or have oily lids, then you should stay away.
Since it's so soft, it needs to be sharpened quite quickly or it loses its tip, which means that product is wasted more quickly during sharpening. I use the UD sharpener.
Perversion is the best, I will probably never go back to anything else. I tried Urban Decay Zero and thought it was just good, but that there were cheaper options. After trying this one though, it is the blackest black I have ever seen which is great for me. Looks bold & does. not. move after applied. If you plan to get this though, you need a good makeup remover or you will have to go at it a few times to get it totally off.
Everyone raves about this liner and now that I've tried it I understand the hype behind it. I was never a fan of UD Zero so when I heard there was a new black liner they were releasing I was pretty excited. This liner is definitely the darkest, inkiest black pencil liner I have ever tried. The wear is pretty awesome, it doesn't fade easily at all. I think all the hype is well deserved. I do think there are liners at drugstore level at the same quality, so I would not repurchase.
I purchased this product with the UD electric set because I really wanted to try out UD 24/7 eyeliners since I've heard so many good things about them. I picked the electric set because at the time, perversion was not a permanent UD liner and really wanted to try it out. Out of all the black pencil eyeliners I have, this is by far the blackest pencil liner I own hands down, however it is definitely not 24/7. Actually, it smudges maybe within an hour on my lower lash line/waterline area and it is very difficult to fix because it leaves somewhat of a stain/tint where it was. (I guess it could be a result of being so pigmented.) Not only does it smudge, but it slides all over the place, and sort of pools in certain areas on the lower lashline/waterline rather than wearing away evenly. Also, it irritates the heck out fo my lower lashline/waterline. I tested it multiple times because I thought maybe it was the result of my eyeshadow, eyes bothering me or allergies but it after many tries the irritation was the result of this pencil!!!
I do wear contacts, however I have not tried this to tightline. I have worn this on my upper lashline and it looks comprable to a gel or liquid eyeliner, but it does smudge at around 4 hours (I have oily lids) and again is very hard to fix.
All in all, I'm not planning on returning this because I love all of the other colors that I got with the electric set (ironic since I originally wanted this pencil). This pencil seems to be very different compared to the others that come in the set because they wear much better, don't smudge so quickly and do not irritate my eyes at all. I'm still trying to figure out how to make this work since I can't return it and it seems way to expensive for me to just toss. It's too bad I didn't try zero first, but now I don't know if I even want to after the results of this.
I just think I am DOOMED to not have liner last on me.
I tried this product after I heard good things. I really like the ease of use when it comes to pencils so I had high hopes for this one.
I put it on, and literally an HOUR later, it had all pooled in the corner of my eye making me look like I had just been whooped by f*cking Evander Holyfield.
I tried to correct it, but it had already tinted my skin where it sat.
All in all, it sucked.
I've tried every single pencil out there, from cheap stuff to the expensive ones, and this gives the loveliest, darkest shade of black in a matte finish. Just one stroke (you have to be a bit light handed, actually!), and the pigment comes off densely, you don't have to go over the line more than twice. I rub my eyes a lot, and most days by late noon, my eyelids get a little shiny with oil. Other brands of waterproof eyepencils/liquid eyelines would've smudged for me by late noon. This one comes off on the finger if rubbed hard enough, but doesn't smudge. When you're workin' the wingliner look, this particular quality is a GODSEND for oily eyelids.
I wish it came in a twisttype packaging though. A lot of product goes to waste when one has to sharpen the pencil.
This is the best eyeliner that I personally have ever tried. I know a lot of people are saying that it makes their vision blurry, but for me I have had no problems. With my use I have had great staying power for my water line (2-3+ hours) and perfect staying power on my upper lash line. Sometimes I fall asleep with my makeup on, and with this eyeliner I don't scream when I see my eyes, it still looks great! I would recommend this product to anyone, except for contact lens wearers ;)!
To be blunt, I hate pencil eyeliners. I always try new ones when they come out, but in the end, still prefer liquids. This pencil is the blackest black when it comes to eyeliner. I have to use an angled brush to apply it, because it is very uneven when applied. This pencil, like most, does not stay on my waterline for more than an hour. It does go onto my waterline, which is better than a lot of eyeliners, but does not stay. It actually blurs my vision when used on the waterline so I can't imagine contact users liking this product. I see myself only using this product for special effects based makeups in the future and not for actual eye makeup.
This is the blackest pencil I have found. Stila Kajal, Mac Powerpoint Engraved, Mac Pro Chromagraphic (cream),Mac Smolder are in my deep black arsenal as well, and i have tried many others.Perversion beats them all by a million miles. Deep, dark pigment glides on smoothly, color stays true / dosen't smudge all day (8+ hours!!!), and has a great texture. I knocked off a lippy for price because of how often it has to be replaced, you do need to wait for it to set, and It smudges if you use it anywhere but your water line. BUT with that being said, it is doable you just make sure you take a few extra minutez to use a shadow primer and a matte black shadow to set it. I am averaging 2 months ish, felt like I had to sharpen a lot, thus wearing down the product :( besides that, this pencil rocks. HG status for sure!!! The HG of blackest black eyeliners
