Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Shadow Pencils

Wednesday, 6 April 2011

I was pretty excited when I heard about these new eye shadow pencils coming out. So the first chance I got, I checked them out at my local Debenhams. I first bought the shade 'Delinquent'. This is a purple shade which is amazingly vibrant. I then went on to purchase 'Sin' which, I was told by the sales assistant, was the most popular shade.
I have been wearing 'Sin' as a base or as a lid colour with other shadows pretty much every day. 'Delinquent' is obviously not a shade I can wear every day but on the days I want to do a purple look, I definitely use this.

What I found was that these shadow pencils are creamy and they are easy to apply. If you want to blend them, make sure you do it pretty quickly because once they set, they don't budge at all! They do blend beautifully though.

I did a test yesterday where I applied both shades on to my hand, took a photo and went about my daily business. At the end of the day I took another photo to see what difference there was.
This was the photo I took as soon as I applied it. I applied two swipes of each shade.

At the end of the day, it looked something like this..
Now obviously the lighting was slightly different with there being no natural sunlight but what I noticed was that there was a very small amount of fading but almost no smudging. Both colours were almost exactly the same as they had been that morning. I don't think it gets much better than that.

On my eyes, I have found that there really is no creasing at all; although one time I had make up on from 9am until 10pm and at approximately 9pm, they were starting to show signs of creasing. That really is a long time especially for someone who has oily lids.

It isn't often that I find a product which I love that much but these have got to be one of my favourite eye shadows/bases.
