I had not tried any of the UD pencils, and bought the shade bourbon, as it is one of their best sellers. Wow. Is there anything that UD does not put a ridiculous amount of glitter in? UD is super popular, so people must like that, but I am just not into sparkle for everyday. I love the rich chocolate brown colour, but why the gold glitter? And the liner stays put, but the glitter ends up everywhere. I wouldnt re-purchase.
Love this glorious brown liner! The glitter in this is finely milled and does not cause irritation for me, even near the waterline -- which is unusual, since my eyes can be quite sensitive to glitters in makeup. This goes on as a luscious, deep brown. The golden glimmer to this just provides depth and is not, in my opinion, overly obvious. I tend to shy from glittery eye makeup as I get older, and this just looks like a rich, deep brown for me! A lovely liner that goes on smooth and lasts for many hours. Will definitely repurchase and likely will use very often.
Got this in my Book of Shadows V. II palette. I never wear brown eyeliner (always black) so I didnt pay much attention to it. I couldn't find my Zero one day and decided to give this a try. I LOVE IT! It gives such a natural eye popping look. It compliments my brown eyes and the subtle glitter is awesome. Will definitely replace my Zero eyeliner for this during the daytime.
Love the color and the consistency like all 24/7 liners. HOWEVER, do not put this on your waterline. The micro glitter wasn't noticeable to me until I put it on my waterline and had a miserable day during cpr training! very distracting, felt like an eyelash or something was in my eye all day. i love the color, but the glitter is ridiculous. no one can tell from far away, its just an eye irritant. if it were a straight solid brown it would be perfect, 5 stars. until i find something of similar quality WITHOUT the damn glitter I will repurchase.
I can honestly say I use this eyeliner A LOT. Why? Well, the colour is great for everyday wear and suits for literally everything. A warm brown that makes you look awake and defined without it being to dark. The formula is also the best I have ever tried, glides on effortlessly without tugging. Staying power is good on the lashline, but fades on the waterline. I use Mac's gel liner on the waterline anyway, so I don't mind.
This is my favorite needs-sharpening pencil liner. I prefer Almay's liquid liner in brown topaz (same shade) because its more pigmented, lasts longer, and doesn't need a sharpener.
I have brown eyes and a serious cheap side, but UD's eyeliner pencils are to die for. When I got the naked travel set of 5 (new from UD) I started working my way through the 5 colors. Bourbon is dark and has a very slight reddish tone (hence the name). Applies with one stroke without having to go over the line again and again just to make it show up. Since it's so pigmented these travel pencils will last a long time. If you'd like to try more than 1 you will appreciate the variety and value of the travel set.
After using this the first time I grabbed the majority of my cheap eyeliners and put them in the makeup graveyard. I am converted. Enjoy.
PS- Pair the naked travel set with the naked palette. A match made in heaven,
BTW my first rewiew ever.
I have bought this on ebay so what i payed is less than what you would pay normal retail.
I have yet to try them but first impression is rich and creamy colours.
I have it in baked and bourboun and both seems to be colours i will use a lot.
I think these will stay nicely on with a primer or setting powder but will update you on that after i have used them more.
A medium toned warm brown with some sheen is how I would describe this eyeliner. It's great for wearing during the day if you want a subtle look and for doing neutral eyes. I have a lot of UD's 24/7 liners and staying power seems to be a hit or miss depending on what color it is. At least that's how it is in my experience. This particular color did not stay on my lids as long as other colors did. I'd say about 5-6 hrs whereas other UD liners would stay on almost all day. I guess I expected all of them to perform at least similarly but I don't know if the problem is just with the liner I got or what. The good part: It glides on just as easily as the other UD liners without tugging and doesn't smudge or run all over my eyelids. Anyway, I probably won't be repurchasing this only because I have so many liners in similar colors to this one that I haven't used. Nowadays I'm more into greens, purples and blues.
I love ALL UD eyeliners and refuse to buy any others! Glide on smooth, last all day (and night.. hehe), and looove the pigments. My other faves are Stash and Ransom~ I recommend this to all my friends, even though it's so expensive.
