Beauty Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencils

You’ve seen me use them in just about ALL of my FOTD Friday posts. You saw me list them as one of my favorite products in 2009. You know that I love them and I can’t stop recommending ’em.

I am struggling to find the words to express how much I love these pencils, y’all. They really are the BEST liners on the market. Now because you love me for my honesty, I’m not going to lie to you. $17 for a pencil is quite the splurge. But you all also know that I’m cheap. And for me to justify spending that much on a pencil, well shucks…it really must be all that and a bag of Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips (yum).

My UD liner stash…

Now if those pencils look a little stunted, here’s why…every few months Sephora, Ulta and sometimes come out with little sets of these Urban Decay liners. They usually have two separate sets; one with vibrant colors and another with everyday colors. They are around $25 or so. Crazy deal, right? Last season they retailed for a good $15/each on and I snagged both sets.

WAIT! Pause for the cause..according to Urban Decay’s website, you can still get the sets for $20. Get them here. But hurry hurry. Not sure how long this will last Or maybe it’s permanent and I just don’t know it. *shrugs shoulders*

A frugalista will always find a way to save a dime or dollar. Am I right or am I right?

I usually end up having to buy Zero in its full size packaging since I use this creamy black just about every day.

That’s right…I put it right there on the waterline.
And there it stays. All day. Rain, humidity and not even tears of joy (ahem..or sadness) can make it budge. I’m guessing it’s the jojoba oil and Vitamin E that makes it super creamy.
Yes, my darling. It’s true. Very few pencils come close to the awesomeness that is Urban Decay’s. Granted I haven’t tried EVERY eyeliner pencil on the market. But I don’t need to. For I have found the best.
Long live, UD’s eye pencils! Do you have any? Know of a better?
Tell me!
Oh wait! Since we’re talking about UD, check this out.
They have a Family & Friend’s sale!! That’s 30% off until April 19, 2010. You can snag a travel set of glide-on eye pencils for $20!

    I'm with you on the UD pencils! I think they are the best thing since sliced bread. I probably have about as many shades as you, and they're so worth it!

  • Askmewhats

    girl, I love these too! they glide on so easily!

  • Bsquared86/Bsquared0408

    I love, love, love these liners!

  • Phyllis Bourne

    I'm partial to Stila's liners (forget the exact name). However, they don't come in all of these amazing colors!

    I'm definitely checking these out next time I'm in Sephora.

    Mmmm wonder why I didnt get that UD notifictaion!! Thanks for the info chica! Off to order!

  • BB’er

    I love them too, but they still aren't perfect. My skin is so hyper oily and I find they still smear in the outer corners after a long day. :( I'm still looking for the "perfect" liner.

  • annyss

    dear miss BB'er, maybe u need the primer potion? well, maybe..
    i'm ordering from UD right now!!
    hee~ i won't buy from UD if they're not having sale..cuz the price is soo expensive..

  • anhimals

    They don't stay on my waterline when I use them. Is there a special technique that I don't know about?

  • B

    anhimals—> Really? Hmmm, I don't use any kind of special technique. I just line and go!

  • Giselle

    they dont stay on my waterline either :( i live in florida too so its impossible for me to find something that lasts. it gunks up in the outer corner of my eye…not cute :\
