Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils

 Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil Duo in Zero and Ransom (pencils are available individually at Sephora Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall, 88 Dirhams each) 

  The duo came with a cute sharpener, too!
 The pencils can easily be sharpened when needed.

 I love how dark this black is!

Urban Decay Says:
Creamy, forever-lasting, award-winning and waterproof 24/7 pencils delight you with lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals. 
Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied. With Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil.

I say:
I think I now understand what all the fuss was about!  These pencils are super creamy, so they glide on without dragging the delicate skin around your eye. Plus, they are waterproof, which means that not only are they going to last even if you sweat, they are ideal for lining your waterline as well as tightlining. They're also great if you are prone to allergies and watery eyes, like I am!

Plus, they smudge really well, which is great for me because I like to wear a thin line of smudged liner when I am wearing my glasses. When you apply these, you have about 30 seconds to smudge it before it sets. I don't really advise waiting because once the liner is set, it isn't going to budge!

Just one word of caution: Don't press too hard with these. The liner is so soft and pigmented, that you really don't need to press hard at all. So use a light hand to prevent having to sharpen these all the time, and save yourself a little liner :)

Now, I know I'm a little late to the 24/7 party. In fact, Glamour's beauty blog Girls in the Beauty Department recently named it 'The Best Eyeliner Ever'.  Have you tried these liners? What are your favorite shades?

    I love using the black to smudge and create a sexy smokey look, it works so so well! Wish that Urban Decay was more readily available is Oz though :(
