Urban Decay is known for its great eye products – especially the N*ked palattes, the 24/7 Glide on eye pencils. So, along with everyone else, I too jumped on the UD bandwagon to try my first UD product. How did it fair? Let’s find out:
If you are already a fan of our 24/7 Eye Pencils, this is one little gem you won’t want to miss. It packs the amazing staying power and unbeatable glide of our creamy 24/7 Glide-On formula into a compact, two-in-one format. A master of convenience, this travel-friendly duo features the two most convenient shades ever to share a pencil barrel – rich brown and our award-winning black. (After all, who doesn’t need these super versatile basics in their beauty arsenal?) When we first introduced our original Naked Palette (maybe you’ve heard of it?), we created this pencil to go with it. Eventually, we loaded the Naked Palette with a brush instead, but people BEGGED us to sell the pencil on its own. This is now the ONLY way you can get these essential shades together in one pencil. With their amazing staying power and unmatched color payout, our 24/7 Eye Pencils are one of the things we’re known for. Creamy and waterproof, this highly saturated formula glides on and stays put no matter what you put it through. (Trust us, we have tried it all.) You will definitely want this set for yourself, but don’t forget that it makes a great gift too – so be sure to stock up. It’s even packaged in a clear outer box to showcase the two must-have shades inside. No wrapping required!
$16 in US. Paid some INR 1200 for this.
Fill Weight: 2 x 0.5 g / 2 x 0.01 oz
Nothing special about the packaging. It’s a regular sharpenable pencil – dual ended with a transparent cap on each side.
My Experience with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Double Ended Eye Pencil – Zero/Corrupt:
Colour: The colour “Zero” has been reviewed earlier on IMBB. It’s black but not really an
intense or rich one. Same is the case with the shade “Corrupt” – it’s a chocolate brown, but not too intense or rich. While Zero is matte black, Corrupt is a brown with bit of glitter particles in it. It’s great to have the basic black and brown covered in one pencil. However, since the shades are not super intense, it’s a bit of a downer. The colours could be used to do a smokey eye effect.
Texture: The texture is smooth and creamy. As the name suggests, it glides on the eyelids smoothly. The colour deposits easily, even on my oily lids.
Pigmentation: I did not find pigmentation to be great – it needs a double swipe (if not more). Considering the colours are dark shades, you would have expected better pigmentation from them.
Staying Power: I have I tried this with and without an eye primer. Without the eye primer, the colour stayed for about 4.5-5hours on my oily lids. With eye primer, I was able to extend the wear time by another hour. But I did not find this spectatucular results. Imagine, in half a day, your liner has smudged and disappeared on you. On the undereye waterline area, it lasts for only a couple of hours.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Double Ended Eye Pencil – Zero/Corrupt:
- Basic colours for any eye makeup enthusiast.
- Good mix with one matte and one sparkly shade.
- Gel texture which glides on smoothly.
- Smudge proof and waterproof – stays put till you decide to take it off!
- Can be used to create thin line or smudged smokey eye effect.
- Did not cause any irritation to my sensitive eyes.
Cons of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Double Ended Eye Pencil – Zero/Corrupt:
- Availability of Urban Decay products in India.
- Lacklustre in the area of longevity – as against the claims made by the company.
- Not so impressive pigmentation.
- The shades are not very intense.
- Not waterproof.
- Not smudgeproof.
Overall, I am not so impressed with this offering from Urban Decay. It’s not an utter failure, but also nothing to be overly excited about either. There are better eye pencils in the market and at better price points.
