Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils don’t need any introduction. They’ve achieved cult status and are raved about by beauty addicts, bloggers and editors alike. To say that I am a fan, too, would be an understatement (they are actually my favourite pencil liners). So, what’s so special about them?
The shade I’ll talk about today is called Zero, a soft black. At first I was a bit disappointed it wasn’t a true, more intense black but after trying it on, I appreciated it a lot more. A soft black is easier to wear even during the day as it doesn’t look too harsh. The color is also very pigmented so one swipe is all you need. The formula is absolutely wonderful. It’s so creamy and glides like butter on the lid without tugging nor pulling.
Once applied, you have about 30 seconds to blend it out if you want a smokier look. After that, it stays put for the entire day.
I experience just the tiniest smudging at the outer corner of my eyes after about 8 hours of wear but it is so minor that I don’t really mind it. I’m already home by then so it’s not really a problem for me.
The best part? It lasts long on the waterline too. I have watery eyes and most eyeliners last less than half an hour, but after 5 hours, Zero is still there. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? And it doesn’t sting the eyes either.
