Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion
melangerehab 3/19/2013 10:44:00 PM
Like everyone else is saying, this is super pigmented, blackest black, and very creamy. The texture is wonderful, but it does tend to smudge. I like it much better than Zero, though. As long as I use very little, like when I wiggle it into my lash line, I find it doesn't smudge much. A little goes a long way, but I couldn't use this in a more noticeable way without setting it with eyeshadow first. I don't think an eyeliner worth repurchasing should need to be set to last properly, IMHO.
It's a pretty color, and the fallout wasn't terrible for me, but while it's versatile, it doesn't have the "wow" factor I want in a copper color like this. It looks boring on the pan, pretty on my hand, and boring on my face. Just not my color, I guess.
Absolutely gorgeous. I prefer matte eyeshadows over shimmers, but this is one shimmery shade I'll never shy away from. Versatile light browny bronze, a regular go-to in my collection. Wearing it right now! Brightens me right up. There aren't many UD shades I would happily shell out $18 for, but this is one of them. Too bad I can't see myself ever hitting pan with this, haha.
Glitteriest UD shade I've come across yet, most likely to destroy your finished face, and hard to get out of the pan. NOT WORTH IT. I hate this UD shade more than anything else. I barely touched it in my Ammo palette and I depotted it and threw it out because I hated looking at it.
This is a pretty color in general, but I have trouble making it look good with my skintone. This is the only UD color that has ever given me this problem - it's beautiful, yet it washes me out. Very strange! Usually they work well. Wouldn't recommend for cool-toned pale-skinned girls, but I'm sure it looks lovely on warm toned skin.
I never had problems when using this eyeshadow like an eyeliner, but if I used it like a regular eyeshadow, I had problems. Doesn't blend well, a signature UD glitterbomb shade, fallout incoming. UD eyeshadows without glitter are the best, UD eyeshadows with glitter are the worst.
Pretty... but waaaaay too glittery. Nope, nope. Not worth the fallout and ruining the rest of your face. Very frustrating to work with. Would not recommend any of UD's glittery shades.

Got it in an Ammo Palette, used it for brow bone and inner corner at first. Then got tired of the CONSTANT fallout regardless of eyeshadow primer, depotted it, and threw it away. No thanks, glitterbomb UD shades. Get out of my life forever.
Pretty brown, versatile, good for lots of skintones. Not a disappointing shade at all - it is a color that easily becomes a repeated go-to.
Very pretty gold! Great on lighter skin tone. The glitter is not too bad, for an UD shade. Versatile for a variety of looks - won't let you down.

When it comes to Urban Decay eye products, they have amazing colors, but sometimes, certain things do not pan out. One, glitter. Glitter in any of their products is almost always added hassle and maintenance. Two, eyeliner. Their eyeliners, given enough time, will smudge into your outer corners something fierce, unless you set with eyeshadow or powder. I find this frustrating, because this is a beautiful color, a very flattering brown, but I've gotten used to using a dark brown eyeshadow from UD to line my eyes because it doesn't smudge throughout the day. If I am avoiding eyeliners and using eyeshadows to line my eyes, something is amiss. If I have to set my eyeliner in order for it to cooperate with me, it is not an eyeliner worth repurchasing.

UD pencils are outstanding, flattering colors, and they look nice... at first. Give a beautiful look complete with eyeliner ten minutes of normal eye activity, like looking around and blinking, and you'll find eyeliner in the corners of your eyes, even if you set the area around your corners with powder to prevent this problem. I do not think that an eyeliner that requires being set with eyeshadow is worth repurchasing. When it comes to lining my eyes with UD products, I am more likely to use one of their eyeshadows than one of their actual eyeliners. Something is amiss here.
Oh, boy, whattamiss. Sorry, e.l.f., I usually love your products, but this was a disappointment. The concealer side was meh, it matched my skintone but was very ineffective for dark circles. If I put it on a blemish with flakes or dry skin, like a healing pimple, it drew attention to it like woah. Eventually the packaging fell apart on me and the middle part cracked a little bit so that the concealer side dried out. I had no choice but to break it off and throw it away. And as for the highlighter? Well, it's okay. It's the only highlighter I have, so I can't say much, but it is mostly just glitter, it doesn't really give much of a reflective sheen. Would not recommend this for purchase.

Hm. I tried this out since there was a lot of internet hype for it, and it's good, it's okay. Doesn't clump, like it says, which is nice. Full, dark lashes after several coats. No lash comb needed, really. Not sure if I'm totally blown away, though. I still prefer my Full n Soft. Maybe I'm just a creature of habit.
Sometimes I just want to cry and give up on lipsticks, yaknow? It's like nothing I do will prevent my lips from turning into a dry chapped mess after one day of colorful lips. Ugh. So I've given up on the matte lip color look. Whatever, though. I love these things! Not matte, but great for your lips. I have two, one in Coral Ambition (a more subtle coral) and one in Lust for Blush (light pinky mauve, maybe?) and they are so smooth and moisturizing it's ridiculous. So much better to my lips than Lip Butters. The colors look lovely. They smell nice, like Fruit Loops, which will probably weird some people out, but I like it. The only complaint is that the formula isn't as long lasting as I would like. Other than that, I have no complaints, and I've been sticking to these pretty religiously since I got 'em. My lips are so smooth! What a super duper product. I hope I can restrain myself from collecting more. Check out swatches before you buy - the ones I got are lighter colors, but a few are VERY pigmented and strong.
