I used to be a fan of black kajal for every day. I mean day in and day out, I would swipe matte black kajal and I thought that was it for eye makeup. It saved time, and looked like I tried. I had millions of eyeshadows and yet, I only had time for this. A few years ago, I started trying to break out of that rut and experiment with other shades, colours and looks. This is one eyeliner that started my journey in switching up my look.
Using brown eyeliner instead of black can add so much to your eyes. I think all of us should try and start off with a good brown eyeliner as a substitute for black. I’ve seen a lot of fair skin women here do it. Brown shows up very well, almost black on their skin. On Indian skin tones, however, it shows up as a true brown which I think looks really pretty. And what better place to start brown eyeliner than UD’s iconic range! 🙂
My Experience with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Stag:
The shade I’m reviewing is called Stag. This is also an eyeliner part of the Naked on the Run palette. Stag is described as a deep brown satin. The packaging like all UD liners is a long pencil with silver ends. The body of the pencil indicates its colour, so you can pick it out from your stash easily. The cap feels secure and I’ve never felt afraid that it would open or break.
The color as I described is a matte brown colour, with no shimmer. That’s exactly how it looks on my eyes as well. It has never tugged my eyes. I’ve never experienced any drag with this pencil. It is very creamy and glides on, true to its name. It is also quite smudgable. I love to smudge this onto my lower lash line and add a black in my waterline, like I’ve done in the pic. It gives a nice day time smokey look without being too OTT.
This lasts very well on my lids with a primer, almost 6 hours. I have extremely oily lids and anything and everything creases and fades on my lids. Even the strongest eye makeup. This includes the UD liner. Without a primer, I see this fading in 3-4 hours.
I usually wear it on the top and bottom lid and smudge lightly. I add a black sometimes when I want a defined look. Else I leave it as is. Pigmentation is not the best among the other UD liners, but pretty good when built up. I would suggest layering it on top with some deep brown eyeshadow to make it stay and deepen the colour. These smudge out beautifully, so there’s a lot of looks you can try with this. It comes off easily with a makeup remover.
As with all other UD liners, this one needs sharpening and there’s always a bit of wastage. I usually don’t mind but when I’m paying $20 and a bit of product gets wasted, my tummy really gets twisted in a knot. It’s a little on the pricey side, but these liners are a good texture.
Pros of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Stag:
- Glides on really well, no pulling or tugging.
- Lasts well with a primer (on very oily lids).

Cons of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Stag:
