Great eyeliner pencil! I finally decided to splurge on Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner in Bourbon. I orginally thought $18 for an eyeliner was outrageous, but now I feel that it's completely worth it! I had the problem of my eyeliner fading throughout the day, and this eyeliner doesn't fade, smudge, or smears off because it's waterproof. I had a swatch on my hand from 12:30 this afternoon, and it's now 9:30 at night and it hasn't faded one bit; even after washing my hands... TWICE! It glides on so smooth and creamy. The only con is that the cap doesn't have a sharpener and the price is a little high, but overall, this is an AMAZING eyeliner! :)
I got this because purple is supposed to compliment brown eyes. The color bourbon is a darker plum with hints of brown, and VERY slight shimmer (I can only notice it when i take off my makeup). Staying power isn't as great it is hyped up to be. It definitely still smudges on me after 4 hrs (it seems to be nonexistent, or it runs up the the edges of the waterline super close to the eyeball). However I did enjoy that it had a very creamy formula, so it did NOT tug on my waterline at all. buildable color and due to its consistency you can smudge it if you wear it on the upper lash lines (but for double eyelids i wouldn't do this unless you're lining them super close to the eyelashes, or else the color will just crease and disappear).
Cons- kinda pricey (around $17-18), not very long lasting
Pros- VERY creamy formula, good color selection if you're looking for a line of products that offer crazy colors (bright neo blues, oranges, greens, electric purples) as well as neutrals (honey=gold, zero=black, yeyo=shimmery white) etc..
Will not buy again due to its lack of staying power. Off to try milani's liquify eye pencils (supposedly dupes, but with a smaller color range of about 4-5 colors only)..
This colour does not work with my dark brown, almost black eyes.
I get comments like;" Your eyes look weird" or "What is wrong with your eyes?". Not good! Nothing else was new or different. The colour is also bit too light for my liking. Crash and Rockstar work just fine as colours. The lasting power is good, nothing amazing. Very similar to Revlon Colorstay pencils. I judge it by how long they last on lower lashline, dont even bother to try in waterline. Nothing lasts there and it makes my not-so-big eyes look smaller. And I cant make as thin line as I want with these. I have the Grindhouse sharpener.
I like every there is to like about these pencils...what I don't like is the glitter. I had a few fall in my eyes and it was irritated all day. They are super creamy and does last all day. I would advise that you visit UD website, it gives you a break down on what has glitter and what doesn't. I wish I would have done that before I brought them.
Great liner underneath or on top of eye shadow. Never smears after a long day at work. Washes off easily. Best eye liner I've used so far.
Bourbon is a great colour on my hazel eyes - it adds warmth, dimension and subtle sparkle. Now, I'm generally NOT a fan of sparkly products, but the glitter in my Bourbon pencil is finely milled and doesn't impede a smooth application. My HG liner is, and has always been, MAC Teddy but UD Bourbon is up there as a regular-use item. It's in the same bronzey-golden brown family as Teddy but is a warmer brown (I imagine that if Bourbon and UD Corrupt had a baby, it would be Teddy!). Anyway, I find Bourbon to be long-wearing and very pigmented. I use it on my upper lid and also on my waterline with no dramas. As with other 24/7 pencils, application is creamy and smooth - it can be blended out for a smokey eye, but then it sets into a relatively smudge-proof line. I love it! I always keep one on hand, and am confident in recommending it to others.
Really compliments my dark brown eyes once it's on it stays until I remove it even on the waterline, I love this and own nearly every shade thanks to the recent 15 year anniversary set :)
UD Glide on pencils are hands down the best eyeliner pencils I have ever tried. I have tried so many liners over the years, but none of them would stay on my lids for more than 4 hours (not even MUF pencil liner!), but UD liner stays put on my eyes for 10+ hours. Bourbon is a great shade of deep brown that I can wear for a simple daytime look or make a great smokey eye.
So far I really like these pencils. I have 2 so far. (this one and gunmetal) They have great staying power. (at least for me) And I have MAJOR problems getting pencil liners to stay on my lid in any capacity. And these not only stay on my upper lid, but also on my lower lashline and waterline!! They also don't irritate my eyes either.
This truly is the perfect eyeliner. It is expensive but the staying power is phenomenal. When first applied, the color is easily smudgeable but after that, it's in it for the long haul. I have bought, many, many eyeliners in my day and this is far and away the best. I have it in a coppery color too which I love for summer and this color. I will only buy this brand from now on. I also love how the cap stays on tight.
