Claims : A must for smoky-eye fanatics: an ultra-velvety, plush version of our creamy, waterproof 24/7 formula. Create perfectly blended-out or rich, defined lines. Looking for the perfect liner to complement the ever-popular UD smoky eye? This is it: an ultra-velvety, PLUSH version of our legendary 24/7 Eye Pencil. 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil is the ultimate tool for smudging. And it has the same long-lasting benefits as our 24/7 Eye Pencils.

More powdery than our original 24/7 Eye Pencils, 24/7 Velvet blends easier to create soft, smoky edges. Use this pencil to get perfectly blended-out or rich, defined lines. 24/7 Velvet is the ultimate liner for doing a smoky, rimmed eye (or whenever you want a look that’s more matte and soft).

Price : USD 20 / Rs 1,250

My Experience with Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil

I picked up quite a few Urban decay Pencils during my trip. The two of them are from their Velvet Glide on Pencil range.

Lush : a gorgeous rich deep chocolate brown.

Minx : a stunning midnight blue.

These pencils are dream when you swatch them on the hand.

  • The are sharpenable pencil eyeliners. For me these sharpen easily. The tip has never broken for me.
  • SUPER Pigmented.. The pigmentation is quite insane for a pencil liner. Both the colors show up easily on my brown skin.
  • These pencils are quite dry. Don’t compare them to your creamiest eyeliners but there is a little resistance when you apply them. That said they are creamy enough that you don’t get any crazy tugging or pulling of your lids.
  • The pencils are super matte. I absolutely love how they look when applied – understated but still bold enough.
  • The finish is gorgeous velvetty matte.
  • They have never caused any irritation to my eyes.
  • The staying power is insane. When used just as a liner, they have barely budged for good 8-9 hours.
  • Paraben Free

Now despite all the goody good points these have a major drawback as well.

  • I find them painful to do smokey eyes with. With this kind of intensity, you would love to get that soft 1-minute smokey eye makeup look. You can’t. The moment the brush touches these liners, they flake and crumple and all the fall out is on your lower lash-line. Annoying!
  • These are best used as liners with one or two swipes using short strokes. Let them set and forget about them. I wanted to create a super intense thick blue eyeliner look (check FOTD below). So I went over the liner a couple of times to build the thickness and intensity. Boy! the fall out was insane and it kept crumbling as the hours passed by. I ended up with the patchy eyeliner by evening. 🙁 While every time I use them as a one-swipe eyeliner these totally behave themselves and stay out making my eyes look pretty.

So I like these eyeliners but I always have a bit of trust issues with these pencils. I never wear them to parties because I can not rely on them fully. Loved the idea and the matte gorgeousness but the formula needs a bit of work.

Rating : 3/5

  1. These 24/7 eye pencils smudge on me like crazy..Even the famous perversion..I went back to my humble colossal!

  2. Mink is really really pretty. I have the same problem with the UD PUSH up liner – it is so intense black n easy to apply. But flakes so much!

  3. Rati…where can I get this jewellery from….??? U r the first person I hv ever seen who carries it soooo well…
