Urban Decay 24 7 Eye Pencil – Does It Live Up To The Hype ?

I feel like all my inspiration for my Autumn/Winter make-up has come from this one photo above ( from November’s Allure magazine I think…). I’ve been all about the bronze, copper metallic eye & eyeliner just finishes it for me. Not so much of the metallic lips I just can’t pull that one-off, I’ll leave that one for the experts.When it comes to eyeliner I’m a novice. I want it to be easy to the point where I’m not crying for 30 minutes about wonky lines, smudges or simply gunk free inner eyes where my liner has accumulated. I really don’t ask for much do I? Well I decided I’d try the Urban Decay 24 7 Eye Pencil, a little less affordable and a hell of a lot more hyped than most eyeliners.

This was taken a few weeks back when sunlight was still available most of the day! It was the last time I managed curling my hair with Ghds, not sure what changed but I’ve tried twice since & had to go back over & straighten it. Maybe need new hair products but it’s bugging me, would love any tips you got on it.

Back to the eyeliner at hand, I got the doubled ended Naked one (meant to go with the infamous Naked palette) so I had more colour to play around with for the same price as one. The shades are Zero a soft black & Whiskey a warm medium brown. For most eyeliner wears this pretty much covers you for your eyeliner needs. I haven’t attempted to fail at the dreaded wing yet but for extra definition at the base of my lashes this baby works. It’s creamy formula glides along your lash line & you can get colour right at the root of the lashes. If find Whiskey to be more pigmented but you can build up Zero to be a more opaque black. If you apply this to your water line make sure it’s really dry before you apply it as this means it last most of the day without migrating into the inner eye.

I will definitely be getting more of these eyeliners in the future as I really fancy trying out the velvet version. The Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil lives up to the hype and then some. Yes they are £12 for the doubled ended (2 x 0.5g) but I think compared with all the eyeliners I’ve bought it’s still better value as I trust that I can pick this up any time and not fail at it! The singles are more expensive but better value at £14-£15 but you get 2g of product.

To see the Urban Decay Eye Pencil in use I’ve used Whiskey in the post Leather Effect Color Tattoo and Zero in my Cara Delevigne Get The Look post.

What’s your favourite Urban Decay colour or do you have a better eyeliner to beat it?
