I recently got this in a swap, and I'm already a fan! It's a dark brown, metallic color with some undertones of grey and green that give it a nice muddy, almost charcoal color, so it ends up looking more like a soft black than a vivid brown. Great for daytime wear when I want to line my eyes but feel that black is too harsh.
The staying power is great on this. I used it to line my upper and lower lids, and it stayed put without smudging all day. Also very easy to apply--it goes on very smoothly without tugging and with a great color pay-off. I'll definitely purchase this when I run out.
I love Urban Decay liners! I had an hour to kill at the mall today so I went to Sephora and started swatching the UD eyeliners versus the MUFE eyeliners. Compared to UD, MUFE liners appear so dull! I mean, the intensity of MUFE's colors are nice, but I like the shimmer and sparkles in the UD liners that make the color more interesting. As far as I can tell, these UD liners are completely smudge- and waterproof on my hands. I'll have to see if they smudge from my oily lids though.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, Bourbon is a warm brown with gold shimmer that is just lovely. I could seriously stare at it all day ^_^
UPDATE: The liner didn't smudge at all on me when applied with a layer of UDPP underneath. However, it did fade within a couple hours when I used it on my waterline. I really love the effect of the subtle shimmer in the liner, though, so this is definitely a keeper ^__^
Creamy & very long-lasting! No smearing! Goes on so smooth. I can't wait to try all the other colors. The first 30 seconds you can play with it, but after that it's set! Will buy again & again. HG eyeliner.
This is the most creamy and easy eyeliner in the market. I stopped using Bobbi Brown gel liner after I got Bourbon. Never harsh on the skin, and layering is so easy. Lasting power is tremendous, and pairs perfectly with the nudes eyeshadow shades for a day look on the street or in office.
Another favorite from the 24/7 line of eyeliners. This color is fantastic. This and Stash are my favorite colors. It's medium/dark warm golden brown with flecks of gold. Gorgeous on all eye colors. As countless other reviewers have stated; it's creamy and very long lasting, no smearing!
I am on my 2nd pencil, and can't say enough about it! Goes on creamy, you can smudge it slightly right after application (I use a Q-tip on my lower lashline), but after that IT STAYS PUT. From 7am to 2am, it hasn't moved a bit! Now mind you, I use my UDPP underneath, but still! I guess because it's fairly soft I have to sharpen it with every use.
The colour is a warm mid-brown, with shimmer. Not huge sparkles, but definitely noticeable if someone is standing close enough. I say it's the perfect amount of shimmer. I will keep buying this forever!
I have said this repeatedly on the boards "they will pry my UD 24/7 Bourbon out of my cold, dead, hand.". First of all, this lives up to it's claims, I can put this on @ 7:00 am and when I remove my MU @ 10:00 pm @ night it's still there, going strong, and I need to really let the MU remover soak in before I swipe it off and it may take one or two more swipes to get it off completely. I don't find this to be a problem, as it is worth it for the extended wear. The color is perfect for me, it is a nice rich coppery brown and compliments my blue eyes nicely. It glides on beautifully and does not skip or tug. My next purchases will be 1999 and Underground, well worth your $$ for a quality product.
The UD description on Sephora says: Created with 50 percent moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, this brilliant collection of eye essentials offers long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied.
$16 USD at Sephora or Ulta.
I wanted to love this, especially after hearing all the raves on the boards and discovering Stash 24/7, which is absolutely beautiful. Bourbon is not a bad color; it just doesn't work for me. I'm NC25 AAB, with super dark hair and eyes, and Bourbon just looked way too light on me. I like liner to define my eyes and make my lashes look denser, even if it's colored liner, and Bourbon just wasn't dark enough. It sort of looked like I had liner floating above my lashline--just odd. I appreciate that it doesn't have red tones, and I love the formula, but I had to take this one back to Sephora. I'm giving this a 4 because the formula is great, and it's not the liner's fault that it was the wrong shade for me.
LOVE IT!!!!!! This is such a gorgeous glittery, coppery brown. It's just beautiful. My only complaint is that it's a *touch* too light for my super dark, nearly black eyes, but it's gorgeous nonetheless. I love it, love it, love it.
This is such a pretty brown! I love how creamy it is and the lasting power is great too. Sometimes the glitter in this bothers me a little bit, but overall I think it's one of the best eyeliners I have used so far! Highly recommend
