YES!! I love this! I've been on a glitter kick lately and this eyeliner was recommended to me by the Makeup Board. And I can see why. This stuff is GOOD. It doesn't budge, not even a little bit, until I'm ready to take it off. And there's no glitter fallout AT ALL. I am impressed!

UD's Midnight Cowboy is made up of bling-y gold glitter in a clear gel base. Once it dries (which is very quickly), it's not going anywhere. It's very sparkly and metallic-looking and yet it doesn't look crazy. It's very beautiful and flattering, it's glittery but it's not over-the-top. Very wearable. I am so glad I bought this! I want to try all the other Heavy Metal eyeliners now.

Fantastic packaging too. It comes with a fine-tipped applicator so you can make your line as thin or thick as you want to. I find that this e/l requires two coats to achieve the glitter density that I want, but that's okay with me. No eye irritation (that would be a deal breaker) and it removes very easily too.

Excellent product overall, I'd definitely buy it again. Highly recommended!! A+++

I got a tube of Midnight Cowboy in a Sephora Favorites box and oh my god. I wasn't expecting to LOVE it! But it's beautiful! It's a gold sparkle in a clear gel. It goes on pretty good, if it's a little patchy you can just go over it with another swipe and you are good to go!

The amazing thing about this product is that it stays and stays and stays. Once it dries down it is not budging. I seriously wore this all day and then tried smudging it off my eye at the end of the day, and my normal black eyeliner smeared off, but the Heavy Metal glitter hardly moved at all! I was so blown away! Check the end of my video to witness. I am totally going to try other colours. I am so happy with this.

Maybe I got lucky, but my tube of Midnight Cowboy distributes a nice, thick, even line of gold microglitter. This was my first UD glitter liner and it remains my HG. I wear this on weekends and nights out. During the day I use it with a simple sweep of X shadow. At night, Midnight Cowboy is awesome over any darker eyeliner for extra impact. The NYX glitter liners are much cheaper, it's true, and also excellent, but I will pay extra for a hygiene seal in my teen-infested Ulta!

The first product I bought from Urban Decay was one of their eyeshadow palettes, and I was so impressed I wanted to try their other products, such as Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. When I was able to get my hands on Midnight Cowboy during a swap, I really wanted to love it but ended up really disappointed.

From previous experiences with glitter liners I knew that the glitter was going to be sparsely distributed in the clear eyeliner gel and intended as as a layered accent over other makeup. But since this is higher-priced I was expecting more glitter content out of it, and was surprised that it seemed to be less glittery than lower-priced glitter liners like NYX Liquid Crystal Liner. I tried applying layers of glitter on top of itself to see if I could intensify it, but it only ended up wiping away the previous layer. The one thing I did like about this liner is that it didn't sting my eyelids on application.

I am glad that I only received this in a swap and didn't have to pay the high retail price. I would have been much better off getting cosmetic-grade glitter and patting that onto to lip-gloss lined lids.

Being the sparkle psycho that I am, I bought this glitter liner because it's supposed to be super wonderful and looked awesome in Sephora...my little heart was screaming, "Must-Have Item"!!!
In reality, it's pretty good but not the pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow or anything...it's expensive and takes awhile to build a line or encrust your eyelid with disco ball-like glimmer.
I also have this in Mullet and Baked, I can justify those more than the Midnight Cowboy because they are unique colors, as far glitter liners are concerned.
If I were to do it all over, I would skip this one and buy more NYX Liquid Crystal liners...those are purty AND cheap!

My favourite urban decay glitter liner! Such a pretty colour i got mine in a gift set includibg midnight cow boy eyeshadow & they work really well together, if u like to wear ur glitter liner thick i would say this is hard work as it takes a while to build the glitter up! I do love it and its the only glitter liners that doesnt make my eyes itch!

This is great! I love how it adds a pop to your everyday makeup! You can apply it very light, for a subtle glitter, or very thick and layer it for and extra WOW effect. Its overall beautiful with no fallout. It stays on pretty much all day with the primer, unless you rub your eyes a lot. COMPLETELY RECCOMEND!

This eyeliner was great!
It provided a dominant shimmer/glitter, which highlighted my eyes really well! It's easy to use, and it glides on quite thickly. It's quick to dry, and doesn't smudge around too much.
It's a bit difficult to wash off. Although you may have washed most of it off, there are still a few bits of glitter left on your face.

I love this product! It is more adventurous and "look at me", so if you like more natural/subtle makeup, it's a definate no-no. It's a clear gel liner with lots of light gold glitter. I like wearing it with bright warm colored eyeshadows. I admit, it takes a little longer to wash off makeup though.

I got this for free, I would never buy this and I am pretty sure I will never use it, unless I become a Vegas showgirl. It feels itchy when you put it on, and its so shiny and very, very yellow goldy toned that I am not even sure there is a way you could mute it down or use it subtly. In order to say at least one good thing about (other than that it was free - haha) I will say this: Great for halloween!
