Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils: Demolition, Torch & Whiskey

Urban Decay makes my favourite eyeshadow primer and there is rarely a day that I don't end up using it. I also like their eyeshadows (Naked palettes, although it's been a while since I've used them) and their 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils. I've actually reviewed one of these in the past, but since it's been a couple years and they've also added new shades, I thought it deserved an update.

The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils are soft and creamy eyeliners that come in 43 shades. They contain 1,2 g of product and need to be sharpened, so some of the product gets lost and the tip (and the eyeliner in general) can get worn off and used up pretty fast. The line also isn't always the most precise and can look a little wonky. I use a cheap Essence dual sharpener and these fit and sharpen perfectly well. I find them to have excellent pigmentation, creamy and smooth formula that glides on the lids or waterline without tugging. I tend to prefer this kind of eyeliners compared to liquid eyeliners since they're more user friendly, easier to maneuver, correct any mistakes and clean up the edges before they completely set. These Urban Decay have one of my favourite formulas of all the eyeliners I've tried so far, which is why I've repurchased them, despite their slightly higher price. 
I have the shades Demolition, Torch and Whiskey. After application you have about 30 seconds - 1 minute to blend, before the formula sets and then doesn't budge or transfer for the whole day (10 hours+) on the upper lash line, but it can fade a little bit from the waterline, after about 6 hours. What I really like about these is that they don't migrate or collect in the inner corner of the eye, which often happens to me with a lot of drugstore formulas. They blend out well with either using fingers, a Q-tip or brushes. 

Demolition is a matte deep brown shade. It is the deepest of the three and a great alternative to using sharp black liners, especially for someone with fair skin or light colouring.
Torch is a matte warm brick/sienna. I love warm and reddish eyeshadows in general so I love having a shade like this in eyeliner form as well.
Whiskey is a matte warm medium/deep brown. This was a shade I've used in the past and it's literally the perfect matte warm brown, that is not too dark or too light. I know I've tried out several eyeliners since first trying this one out and could never find a perfect dupe - if I found a close enough shade, the formula wasn't on par with it.

- Topshop Beauty Waterproof Kohl Pencil Liner in Ebony,
- Rimmel Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner in Sable Brown,
They all have a consistent formula: creamy, very pigmented and opaque in one swipe, long-lasting, budge-proof and easily blendable. They are on the pricey side, but I think they are worth the price, especially if you like this kind of formulas and don't mind the sharpening aspect.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils are available here or here online in a wide selection of shades and finishes (matte, glittery, ...).

  1. Definitivno moji najljubši klasični eyelinerji :) Noben drug se tako lepo na pozna v moji waterline in noben drug ne zdrži tako dobro na vekah. Sicer zdaj že dolgo ne nosim več navadnih eyelinerjev, ampak ko jih, vedno vzamem enega od teh. Imam pa Zero, Whiskey, Bourbon, Stash, Gunmetal in Baked.

    1. Moji tudi :) Sem jih preizkusila nekaj iz drogerije, ampak me je vedno nekaj zmotilo pri njihovi formuli. Whiskey je moj favorit.

  2. Slišijo se super. So tako popularni, da bi tudi sama z veseljem kakšnega preizkusila, ko ga bom imela priložnost kupit.

    Torch je tako lep odtenek <3 Me je takoj pritegnil in ful ti paše. :)

    1. Imajo celo mavrico odtenkov na voljo, tako da boš sigurno našla kakšnega zase, ko jih vidiš kje v živo :) Z odtenkom Whiskey ne moreš falit, tebi bi pa sigurno lepo pristajal tudi Torch. Res je lep odtenek :)
