It's hard to give this product such a low rating, because I'm torn both over its look and application, and the impact of its high price tag. I WANT Demolition to be a luxury liner, but I'll try to not let this cloud my judgement of the product. How would I see it if it were from a drug store?
Starting with the good:
The color is okay, although I find it to be more of a gray than a brown. It's subtle and forgiving, compared to a bold and error-prone deep black liner. As claimed in the pencil's name, it "glides on" and doesn't pull on my lids or leave them irritated. This I like. It's also very easy to remove, so I would say that it "glides off" as well, which is nice for someone with sensitive skin. I can actually take this off and apply a different liner without breaking skin! :D It also smudges well. Too well?
And the bad:
The lasting power is terrible. Try a couple hours until it has turned into a light gray smudge. It doesn't sharpen with a universal sharpener, which is one of my number one pet peeves about expensive liners. If we're paying so much in the first place, why make us shell out for a 10 dollar sharpener as well? Friggin' highway robbery.
It doesn't go on precisely, and if it did leave thinner than a crayon-sized line, it would probably be gone within the half hour.
If I paid a couple dollars or something for this product, I'd be pleased with how gentle it is. If someone offered one as a gift, I certainly wouldn't turn it away. It's also not the worst liner I've ever used, but would I recommend it? Nah, don't think so.
After forgoing pencil and liquid liners for so long (I use gel liner), I was pleasantly surprised in the pigmentation and lasting power of this liner. Didnt smudge or fade, looks beautiful and sharpens well.
I really love this color. I've tried all of UD's colors because I love them so much, and I ended up with Rockstar, Demolition, and Bourbon for life. These colors go so well with brown eyes. What can I say about UD's eyeliners that hasn't already been said? They're just the best. Highly pigmented, glide on smooth, stay rich for hours. Price and the fact that it can be slightly irritating to sensitive eyes are only cons.
I love this eyeliner! I am not good at using makeup but I use this every single day, I have pale skin and black would be to harsh for everyday so I use this instead... It looks exactly the same at the end of the day as it did in the beginning and I will definitely repurchase this when I run out!
This pencil made me fall in love with eyeliner pencils again. Normally I use cream liners, but sometimes I want the convenience of a pencil. Demolition is a great dark-brown matte shade, not too red or so dark that it looks black. It applies easily, stays in place until I take it off (and I need eyemakeup remover to get it off), and looks great. I also like the fact that the creaminess of the formula makes it easy to get very close to the lash so there's no telltale line between lashes and liner. This is my new go-to daily liner. And I like this one so well that I bought Mushroom and Despair. I'm looking forward to trying those, too!
This eyeliner is part of my everyday makeup routine. Because black liner is a little harsh, Demolition is the perfect alternative for us fairer skinned brunettes. It smudges easily, which depending on how you're wearing it could be good & bad, the color lasts all day, and the pencil lasts a pretty decent amount of time for the price. For me, it's great for quick & simple liner.. not great for creating cat eyes or doing anything fancy. I sharpen with the Urban Decay little purple sharpener (which by the way is great even for the $10 price). I definitely will continue to buy this product!
This eyeliner is mediocre at best. It smudges when it applies and does not last very long before wearing off and looking even more smudged than when first applied. Definitely not a good choice for someone with oily lids. The pencil does not sharpen well, which defeats the purpose of having a pencil eyeliner, IMO. The one positive is that ithe 24.7 eyeliners come in a wide variety of colors, however I would not repurchase. .
I like this brown pencil but I don't think I'd buy it again... There's nothing that is making me love it so much to buy a 19 dollar eye liner again.. I may buy the Avon mega Impact one, I'm pretty sure it's about a third the price.
I really like the quality of this product. It glides on smooth and lasts all day at my waterline. However, just as other reviewers have said, I have to sharpen this way too often. That equals more wasted product. It is almost impossible to get a fine point so don't even consider this is you are planning to create fine detailed lines. For the price I would expect it to last but I think I will save my $$'s and go back to the drugstore for comparable cheaper products.
I absolutely love the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, they are without a doubt my favorite. The color Demolition is a very nice dark matte brown that is cool toned, so it's very wearable. I always wear eyeliner on my waterline and this is my go-to color when I don't know what else to use. With a few coats it stays put pretty well. I love how soft it is, but it's kind of a disadvantage because it makes sharpening it really difficult. The tip will break off or crumble oftentimes, but I don't use it for fine detail work so it's not a big deal to me. I highly recommend this product, it's just great.
