This just in from the Urban Decay Holiday 2012 release: the Smoked 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set.
This is a set of six mini eye pencils for $38.00 meant to complement the Smoked Eyeshadow Palette. The favorite 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are well-known for being long-wearing and having high impact on the waterline.
All six shades are what I consider the necessities of eyeliners. They allow a complete range of wearable shades that will enhance any eye color. Urban Decay describes the shades as follows:
Uzi – a gunmetal taupe with silver micro-glitter
Zero – zealous black
Demolition – deep brown matte
Smog – copper
Empire – dark eggplant satin
Mainline – dark green-blue matte
Each pencil applies smoothly with little pressure required. The colors are highly pigmented and stay true to color while worn.
My favorite pencil of the set is Smog for it’s wear on my waterline. Many eye-brightening liners are too obvious on me, but I like something that looks polished and not overstated. The depth of smog isn’t too dramatic and the metallic nature gives my eyes the boost they need.
Uzi, Zero, and Demolition are stapleswhile Empire and Mainline are two colorful shades I feel confident enough to wear without looking extreme.
What are your must-have shades for eyeliner in any collection? Are you devoted to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On pencils or do you have another favorite?
