I am back with another review from Urban Decay’s line of pencil eyeliners. This time, it’s a gorgeous teal-blue shade. This shade is certainly a departure from my trusted black and brown eyeliners and is perfect for the summer time. To see how this pencil performs and whether it’s something I will recommend to you, read on!
According to Urban Decay, this is “the best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge.” You can either “line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals.” It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
The shade Deep End is described as a “bright metallic peacock shimmer.”
My Experience with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Deep End:
Urban Decay’s Deep End is described as a “bright metallic peacock shimmer,” which to me looks like a metallic teal-blue. It’s a super bright color, that is super pigmented and gives great color pay off. I have had this issue with many bright eye pencils in the past – the colors looks great in the pencil, but just doesn’t show up on my eyelids. For reference, I am a MAC NC 40 (warm undertone, tan skin) with pretty oily eyelids. Finding colors that show up vibrantly on my lids is always a challenge, and I’m pleased to say that this color looks bright and very rich on my lids.
This pencil is very very creamy and you won’t have to pull or tug on your lids when you apply this. It glides on easily, delivering even color. Because it’s so soft, you don’t have to put a lot of pressure on your lids while applying this, which is great because premature wrinkles are a really big fear of mine! The application is very even and the color doesn’t appear blotchy at all. Over the time I have this on, there’s no flaking or dryness on my lids. This doesn’t weigh them down in anyway either – it always feels like I have no eyeliner on. Overall, the color looks bright, vivid and totally eye catching. Because it takes about 30-40 seconds to set, there’s time to smudge it (which is great when I want to wear this as an eyeshadow) and the color is just as vibrant when smudged.
This is definitely a long-wearing pencil. On my upper lash line, I wear it through the day with no touch ups. On my lower lash line, I have to touch up at most once or twice during the day. I never line both. I usually like to wear it either on the upper or lower lash line; never on both together because I feel it will look really odd! Because the color stands out so much, it’s really easy to put a look together by keeping all other aspects of my makeup pretty simple. This, by no means, will look natural on anyone. It’s loud, it’s bright and it will call attention to your eyes. I believe it will look good on all desi skin tones. However, I wouldn’t recommend it for every occasion. It’s definitely not something most of us can pull of at work or even to an interview, but it’s great for a day of shopping, hanging out or going out.
Even though this pencil has to be sharpened, I don’t think there’s any product wastage while doing so. The product is creamy, but it doesn’t break while sharpening (you totally don’t have to put this in the fridge before sharpening!). There is no discernible smell to the product and it’s formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates – which is great! Overall, this is a great pencil for those of you looking for a great bright blue shade to rock on your lids. It’s very pigmented and will show up on your lids. It’s a great shade for spring and summer and will definitely be repurchasing it in the future.
