My Experience with UD Glide on Eye-Pencil in Ultra-violet :
Eye liners are generally the first makeup purchase for majority of women, and black and brown are the top contenders for that first buy. It is only after splurging on several other makeup must haves, that we focus on buying colored eye liners. And very soon, you get addicted to collect every color in your eye pencil stash. Yes, I am one of you!!! Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet is one such stunning shade from my collection.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet is a vibrant medium blue with strong violet undertones. It has fine shimmers embedded, and thus boasts of a pearly sheen. I love that it is just not another colored eye liner with a flat matte finish. The shimmers make it look stunning in any eye look. You can wear it alone, in contrast eye shadow looks or even in monotone looks; like the one I am wearing in the EOTD. The color will look beautiful on all skin tones and eye colors. However, the beauties with brown eyes will surely rock this shade beautifully.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are categorized as the best eye pencils available. The shade Ultraviolet is not an exception. The texture is very smooth and creamy, though slightly waxy. The pencil really ‘glides on’ as its name. It feels very light and does not irritate eyes at all. That is why you can use these pencils safely in the waterline as well. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet does not smudge or budge once it is allowed to set for few seconds. So, if you are looking to smoke out the lower lash line, you better do it as soon as possible. Once it sets, you won’t get a smoky effect from this liner.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet lacks in the pigmentation. No, it is not sheer. The eye pencil has an average pigmentation. But the color is so uneven, that you really need to apply more strokes to get an opaque and intense line. You will get the desired saturation in at least 4-5 strokes, which bugs me when I am in hurry. Thankfully the result is very pretty!!! Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet lasts for 7-8 hours on me, which I think is wonderful. It does not smudge or move around at all.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet comes in an eye pencil, packaged in the same outer color as the shade itself. It has a sliver cap and a silver band at the end of the pencil. The eye pencil needs to be sharpened, which does result in wastage of an expensive liner. How I wish it was a twist-up, instead of a regular pencil.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ultraviolet is my choice for getting an intense bright blue on my lower lash line. Though it does make a gorgeous liner for upper lashes as well, I prefer the current trend of colored waterline. Gets you the perfect spice in an otherwise average eye look.
