Hello lovely ladies,
Some time back, someone asked me about the first thing I noticed on someone’s face and my answer was “eyes.” Eyes are the mirror of our soul and I love to beautify my eyes. I wear mascara every time I go out, but lining the eyes is something I skip most of the times as applying liquid liner is cumbersome and using pencil liner which smudges on my oily eyelids is the last thing I want. So, coming across an eye pencil which claims to have 24/7 staying power is something every girl will be attracted to, so I was no different and bought the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double Ended Pencil – Venus/Crave. I bought this one as I was getting two colors at the price of one!
This is the same amazing formula as the award-winning 24/7 Eye Pencils you know and love! Made with jojoba oil, vitamin E and cottonseed oil, our velvety formula glides on, stays creamy for blending and dries down to a waterproof finish that won’t budge.
My Experience with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Double Ended Pencil – Venus/Crave:
The double ended pencils from UD coordinate with the shades in the n*ked palettes. The shades in my pencil – Venus and Crave, coordinate with the Naked Basics palette. Venus is a pearly cream white shade which works as a highlighter. When used on the waterline, it makes eyes appear big and bright. Crave is a dark brown black shade which is completely matte. This is a great everyday wear shade. I love to wear it to work as it’s a cusp between black and brown, which makes it a perfect shade to softly line the eyes. It is perfect for people who like black liners, but do not like completely jet black shades.
This has a creamy texture, which glides effortlessly on my eyelids. It does not tug or pull and just one stroke gives good pigmentation. On waterline, it takes 2-3 strokes to get color payoff. It’s actually waterproof and smudge-proof, but after application, you should give it a few seconds to set, else you might end up with a smudged crease line. On my oily lids, it stays for 6-7 hours and then fades away. The shade “Venus” stays for 4- 5 hours on my waterline, nothing stays so long on my watery eyes, so this actually has good staying power. If you like soft brown/black lined eyes with bright waterlines, then this pencil will fit your bill. As it’s long lasting, you do not have to worry about touch-ups.
