I am not a huge fan of eyeliner (gasp! - I know). I love a beautifully done smokey eye, don't get me wrong; so many of them are not beautifully done though. As we all know, when eyeliner is applied with a heavy, misguided hand, it ends up looking like someone has punched you in the face. The eye to be exact.
I do not blame women for this eyeliner misshape, but the cosmetic companies for making eyeliner an afterthought. Many of them spend so much R&D on lipstick formulations and new collections that apparently they have no time or money to create an eye pencil that glides on without a glitch and smudges to perfection. I'm bitter.
But then Urban Decay's 24-7 pencil walks in, with its shiny cap and trendy name, and creates the perfectly lined eye!
I had never tried Urban Decay's eyeliner in the past, but these came with my Alice Palette so I thought "what the hell, it can't hurt to try them". OMG. They are amazing. No more dragging a dry pencil across my eye, painfully trying to create a line that looks sharp and clean, instead of looking like Kei$ha had done my makeup.
This is 24-7 in Zero and Flipside. They go on nice and smooth and are able to be blended for about 30 seconds. Once they are dry, these babies stay put. I use Flipside a lot (mostly because of all of the compliments that I get when I wear it) and it looks the same at 7pm when I am removing my face as it did at 7am when I was shellacking it on.
