Freak is a gorgeous, unusual color that I haven't been able to dupe. It is a bright minty-seafoam green, but with warm tones and gold sparkle. I can see this working on many skin types and eye colors. It is semi-opaque at first and takes a few swipes to build up, which you may or may not prefer (I do). It's true to the UD 24/7 formulations, going on very smooth and creamy, and it does not budge once it's on. I wear it either on the inner corners of my eyes or on my lower lid and it stays put all day with no noticeable fade. I have definitely used it more than expected because it gives a fresh pop of color without being too in-your-face. Try it out if you're skeptical.. you may be surprised.

I was kind of torn on which color I should get. I wanted something bright and fun, as I have enough black already. I have this in Stag (from the on the run palette) and I didn't care for that color, but this is truly one of a kind! I have/had lots of other similar colored eyeliner but this takes the cake. It goes on so so so smooth and it really does stay on till you make it come off. I first used it all around my eyes just to play around and wow, I had to take some off because it is so much more pigmented than I thought. Freak is a good name for it lol. All others I have tried always came out much lighter and def didn't stick like this. I love finding good green eye products like this. It makes my dark green eyes really pop! The pencil seems nice like all other UD products and the box it comes in is super cute and probably going to be one of the few thing I will keep in it's box. Highly recommended for bright fun looks or for people with green eyes that want them to pop. I got this for FREE from UD with my birthday code and now I will buy it when it runs out. If you haven't signed up with them you really need to and you can get one in your bday month. Love it!

Love it. I have nothing at all like it and it is the typical UD kick ass quality. This color is so special. I usually wear it on my inner corner for pop.

I was at Sephora the other day and I remembered how some youtube beauty gurus were talking about the newest shades of pencils by Urban Decay. Some of them mentioned how "freak" was a very unique color. I was trying and swatching a lot of things at Sephora and I came across these. I tried it on my hand and, indeed, it is unique and lovely.
The downsides, in my opinion, are that the opacity is not the best. You need to layer or swipe more than expected, to achieve the desired opacity and to be able to appreciate the color at its max. Another downside is that it takes some time to dry and set. A bit longer than I expected, longer than other/cheaper pencils that I own. I am not sure if I should return it or not. It was 20 dls. That's not precisely cheap for a supposed long lasting bla bla bla pencil. The color is lovely and unique, yes. But I have to do some tricks to make it really pop and last on me. I own 2 other pencils by UD (zero and the teal one) and their formula is better. I don't think I will purchase more of these. I guess I will try the long lasting liquid liners. Those were soooo hard to remove from my hand!

This is a shimmery pastel green with bright green shimmer--a very unique, interesting shade. This is the only reason why I purchased this, as I'm not exactly sure how wearable it is. I'm still debating how to wear this. So far I've tried it as a cream eyeshadow all over the lid with black winged liquid eyeliner, which looks nice, but I feel that I can get so much more creative with Freak.
The downside is that the pigmentation isn't great--it has decent pigmentation, at best. It is somewhat buildable, but I'm the impatient type that prefers full color pay-off in one swipe.
On the bright side, the formula, like all the other 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, is smooth and creamy so it applies nicely!
It retails for $19.
