Urban Decay 15th Anniversary 24/7 Pencil Set Review, Swatches, Photos

As we head deeper into 2011 more and more Spring 2011 Collections will begin popping up. Mind you the season for Steals and Deals is kinda over in my opinion as that falls into the realms of the Holidays when brands gather together great palettes, products, etc…and bundle them up with incredible price tags.

But Urban Decay turns 15 this year, might mature for her age isn’t she? And to celebrate you’ll see some pretty nifty, limited edition launches this year to celebrate the brand’s big birthday!

The best deal of 2011? The new Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary 24/7 Pencil Set for $92 which features 15 full size Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils! This is a $264 value and a mere $92 (a mere $6.10 per pencil) out of your pocket to own an incredible set of liners! I can’t think of a better deal this year and you probably won’t find one!

Check it!

I don’t think Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils need any real introduction from me particularly because I’ve raved them and reviewed them several times on Musings prior to this however I will say they are some of the best liners I’ve used. Creamy, easy to smudge, long wearing, and available in a variety of shades are just a few reasons they rock our makeup world!

The Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary 24/7 Pencil Set is an outstanding deal and essential for anyone new to 24/7 Eyeliners or let’s face it, if you’re a fan and own most of these pencils already, you’re still going to WANT this set. Hey, back ups welcome here.

The best news? The set includes six all-new shades and a sharpener, hey might as well get it all right?

You get brand new shades in:

  • Asphyxia (pinky iridescent purple)
  • Corrupt (dark metallic brown w/silver sparkle)
  • Midnight Cowboy (beige w/gold sparkle)
  • Perversion (blackest carbon black)
  • Stray Dog (shimmery brown taupe)
  • Uzi (gunmetal w/grey sparkles)

Plus old favs:

  • Baked
  • Binge
  • Bourbon
  • Electric
  • Mildew
  • Ransom
  • Rockstar
  • Stash
  • Zero

Just a note Perversion is essential! Zero is a great shade however most of us own dozens of the shade already however Perversion truly is the blackest black! Really dramatic, really creamy, and just an amazing shade of black! Brilliant!

Shades swatched from top to bottom, left to right (Stray Dog, Corrupt, Bourbon, Baked, Midnight Cowboy, Stash, Mildew, Electric, Binge, Ransom, Asphyxia, Rockstar, Uzi, Zero, and Perversion.

I think the question that begs answering would be, “Do I need this?” Personally, as an Urban Decay fan, I’d say yes. First off, without a doubt, those new to 24/7 Eyeliners should definitely indulge. Grab it, get it, QUICK. It’s a great selection of color eyeliners at a price that can’t be beat!

Those who already own some of the shades, yes, I do think it’s worth a haul. For one thing you can always give the shades you already have away, or swap them, etc….it’s just nice to have the LE packaging, plus it’s really a steal.

So yeah, I really do think it’s worth a haul, the price is outstanding. It’s a no brainer purchase!

Muse Approved for purchase!

    Mine came in Friday – love it! Such a wide variety of shades! Hell- so much of the set is black or neutral (several bowns, midnight cowboy) that even those who don’t care for color liners still have a great value here.


    • 1/10/11 12:52 the Muse:

      too true carrie! whatcha think of perversion? that stood out the most for me ;D!


      • 1/10/11 14:32 carrie:

        The depth of Perversion is quite amazing! No doubt- this is a true black and will become my go-to if I don’t want to reach for my pearlglide liner.

        TBH I’m more a fan of color liners so having the wide range makes me squee. I’m sure they will all see good use!


        • 1/10/11 15:19 the Muse:

          carrie ditto! awesome shade, brilliant ;-D I think people were comparing it to zero and how it was absurd to include since zero was the black in the collection, but it’s so much more deeper with way more pay off, it makes zero look dull in comparison ;D!

          SAME here! ;D


          • 1/10/11 19:46 Carrie:

            The two shades are night and day!

            I mean, you can tell in the swatches but it really takes seeing in person to get the full difference.

            Zero is still black, it’s just not that black. It looks closest to Black LIne on me and that has a warm golden glow to it!


            Zero has never been my favorite shade, but it’ll be nice to use for travel or in a back-up. lol.

          • 1/11/11 15:06 the Muse:

            great pics carrie!!!!!!!! zero is DULL in comparison to perversion, it really is the truest, blackest black I own ;D LOVE!

  • 1/10/11 12:58 Larie:

    Oh no, Muse! Don’t tempt me! I just finished convincing myself that since I have a boatload of these, I don’t need any more and don’t need this set. Now I have to think about it again!


    • 1/10/11 13:01 the Muse:

      larie six shades you don’t have *wink wink wink* ;D!


  • 1/10/11 13:06 Nathalie:

    Muse, are these the jumbo ones? I thought I read somewhere that they were going to have jumbo liners coming out soon. Are these it?


    • 1/10/11 13:08 the Muse:

      no Nathalie these are 24/7 Eyeliners. The jumbo liners are available on their site but not as a set, sold separately. Hope this helps.


      • 1/10/11 15:08 Nathalie:

        Booo!!!! I thought they were sold in a set.


        • 1/10/11 15:08 the Muse:

          no, they just releases for Spring Nathalie so no sets yet hun. Sorry!


  • 1/10/11 13:08 Jeannine:

    Do you know how Perversion relates (in staying power) to MAC’s Feline? I have Feline, but is usually ends up migrating all over my face by mid-day!


    • 1/10/11 13:11 the Muse:

      fine here Jeannine but doesn’t last as long as I would like on my waterline but no migration issues or smudging, raccoon probs ;D!


      • 1/10/11 19:56 anonymous:

        how is perversion compared to korres black longlast and soft black? (i know you have one of em cuz you made me buy it lol)


        • 1/11/11 9:32 the Muse:

          hi anon..you keep changing your nick to various ones and I get confused which is you lol. Lissa, Lolita, anonymous…! 😀 Perversion is much more intense. Hope this helps!


          • 1/11/11 10:10 she of many names:

            LOL that’s just because sometimes autofill jumps in or a snarky post no longer fits and I forgot what I put. but it’s lissa. hmm, really… Korres 1s is very black. now I want a perversion. wait that sounds fun I mean wrong.

            still, 32 for 10 vs 100 for 15 when there are a lot of colors I don’t want (more zero…yawn, more bourbon yawn) I’d have looked to split a set but I think most people want ransom/ binge/perversion/baked. I like the pretty ones lol. :-)

          • 1/11/11 11:02 the Muse:

            hopefully not snarky posts directed at me lissa ;-D ha yeah…you wanted perversion or want to be perverted lol ;-D if you have someone that doesn’t have any of these perhaps arrange a swap?! 😀

          • 1/11/11 12:01 she of many names:

            Snarky posts reserved for those I love bestest, of course would include the muse! :-)

            I think other people probably would want the same pencils but I’m pretty happy with the ones I kept from jackpot & korres so no swap of liners or any other perversions naughty muse…

          • 1/11/11 12:06 the Muse:

            ha I’m not so sure ;-D snark can be pretty harsh sometimes lissa ;-D ha…oh well…no worries I doubt Urban Decay will keep the shade exclusive to the set anyway! should be available for purchase as just the pencil sooner or later ;-D

          • 1/11/11 12:20 she of many names:

            EEK! No, snarky-silly! You know I <3 ya even if I spend way too much time on here than I should lol. I heard it's gonna release solo but also hoping they replace zero in sets w perversion. or else maybe go with MUFE. today rocking the soft black from korres for the 1st time & really liking it so ty muse! (been wanting it since your review of best of Korres color set)

          • 1/11/11 14:03 the Muse:

            aw thanks lissa ;-D glad you’re loving on the korres, really a fav of mine ;D!

      • 1/10/11 21:18 Jeannine:

        That’s good. I really wanted to like Feline, but it sloshes around waaaaay too much. I’m still mulling over the UD set, because I have most of the perms – it would almost seem a waste just to get the 6 LEs!


        • 1/11/11 15:04 the Muse:

          jeannie wait for the release on those six shades maybe? I’m sure UD will do it sooner or later ;D


  • 1/10/11 13:31 Cj:

    I’ve never used a colored eye liner before, always just black, but for some reason I’m really liking these! Do they work on the water line?


    • 1/10/11 13:46 the Muse:

      hey cj sure do however I find some shades don’t wear as well on the waterline so I kinda stick to black ;D!


  • 1/10/11 13:34 PeaceLovePanic:

    Hey muse!

    I was under the impression that Whiskey would be included in this set as well. Did they leave that shade out???? Why?????? I’m dangerously low on my whiskey from the naked palette, do you have a recommendation for a dupe? I already own bourbon but I like that Whiskey is a rich chocolate with no sparkle. Happy monday!


    • 1/10/11 13:45 the Muse:

      hi hun no dupes sorry?! perhaps someone will answer 😀 I’m not terribly good at recommending dupes sadly. if anything comes to mind will update ya! Happy Monday groan!


    • 1/11/11 12:11 she of many names:

      I agree, not a fan of browns in general but whiskey is 10x better than bourbon! (except to drink, then knob creek wins lol)


  • 1/10/11 13:34 Tracy:

    Must get…must get…


  • 1/10/11 14:19 katrosado5:

    My early Valentine’s Day present. But since Husband is deployed, I don’t have to tell him I already hooked myself up and see what he sends? hehe just kidding (not really)


    • 1/10/11 14:27 the Muse:

      ha katros ;-D buying your own v-day pressies? hell that works!


  • 1/10/11 14:59 Eve:

    God, I wish I could dish out on this! Ugghhh :(


  • 1/10/11 15:47 jonnie:

    Darn it Muse… I had also convinced myself I don’t need this as I already own so many of them. You are trying to break me! 😛


    • 1/10/11 15:55 the Muse:

      haha jonnie I are sorry ;D!


  • 1/10/11 18:06 Rachel:

    Sephora offers a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Duo + Sharpener. It has one with Flipside / Whiskey, if you can stand Flipside, maybe no need for a dupe?


    • 1/10/11 18:45 PeaceLovePanic:


      wow that would be great but I can’t find it….can you include the link to it on their website or is it something you saw in your sephora store?


      • 1/10/11 18:46 the Muse:

        just in case rachel doesn’t reply Peacelovepanic:



        • 1/10/11 18:48 PeaceLovePanic:

          You gals just made my day!!!!!!!! (pathetic what it takes to make my day huh?) thank you soooooooo much!


          • 1/10/11 18:52 the Muse:

            no prob, credit to rachel though I didn’t even realized those duos had whiskey ;D! I wasn’t paying attention

          • 1/10/11 19:35 Rachel:

            No problem & thanks to the lovely Muse for linking that. You both replied while I was at dinner. :)

            & I noticed only because I was at Sephora today and oh hey, the Naked pallette is sold out again.

          • 1/11/11 15:06 the Muse:

            my pleasure rachel thanks for stopping back ;-D did you save any food for us?! ;-D damn they can’t keep that bad boy in stock!

  • 1/10/11 18:08 Rinny:

    I am a huge fan of using these liners for lining my waterline, but if I line my lash line with these, they smudge because I have a monolid. So I have no idea what I would do with the rest of the colors besides black haha. This set really is a great value though – I’m really loving how dark Perversion is also :)


  • 1/10/11 19:22 Phyrra:

    I purchased it and i love it.
    I did a test between MAC Feline and UD Perversion (which I’ll be blogging the results tomorrow). They’re the blackest eyeliner pencils I’ve ever seen.
    I also fell in love with Midnight Cowboy.


    • 1/11/11 15:08 the Muse:

      love MC dd 😀 fav shade!


  • 1/10/11 19:55 anonymous:

    beautiful shades, sadly I could never use them all up before they expired (and the wallet says hahaha anyway). love the asphyxia and perversion, would love if they alternated zero and perversion in sets


  • 1/11/11 2:56 Nia:

    I would be tempted to get Perversion, but in general the 24/7 liners are not the liner for me. And it might be hard to get outside the US.
    Enjoy it :)


  • 1/11/11 12:15 she of many names:

    *wishing MUFE would offer a big set of pencils, or half sized pencils*

    shade 0L, 3L, 6L, 7L, 10L, 11L, 15L, 20L, 23L?


  • 1/11/11 14:26 sparklyblind:

    Hey Muse! It’s been awhile since I indulged in your site or anything like it (except just facial care refills like my beloved Caudalie Beauty Elixer or Dr. Brandts’s Intensolution-SUPER musts!) I HAVE gotten a few new perfumes but then I got soooo ill on a month long vacation to beautiful Savannah I had to JUST SAY NO & it was SO SAD!!! Anyway I just recieved my Eyeliner SET yesterday! (WHY didn’t I get a cute UD Purple Bow? Meh!!!) I t’s pretty awesome too awesome that I don’t want to use them! :) I want to buy another for collection backup I just love how they stamped the pencils w UD15! plus I dodn’t even have the sharpener so it is cool to have the Ann. one! I’m not sure I’ll use it though since I ADORE (why is that Deluxe Shadow Shade yanked with no R.I.P. along w STING?) UD really makes me paranoid these days (along w annoyed) doing that so I prob won’t get another in the fear the next item in the year long celebration of LE’s will appear!
    Anyway, I LOVE ASPHYXIA! I actually emailed them begging them to make a 24/7 in Fishnet so my prayers were answered! (Although Rimmel has a nice Waterproof liner that I had been using & still will, it’s just a bit diff in color& not as iridescent as Asphyxia, it shows up a bit better.)
    I DIS get a few of those NEW CHUBBY SHADOW/LINERS from UD when I ordered my 15 Ann. Set! I got CLAS & MORPHINE which is kinda like Asphyxia but not as iridescent. Gotta love these names. Wow, UD! i Like to call my Clash “dope” just to be a dope, haha. (After they dared it w Yeyo I was like wow they really aren’t scared!! I love to tell people I’m going to save up or go re-up or order my Yeyo online! I’m a fool I know.)
    This set, I agree, Muse, is a musthave. Especially if you don’t have many colors. And for once I actually enjoy using Midnight Cowboy! I HATE all those Shadow shades, too much fallout! (Stalker is the ONLY one I use & pardon for fallout now!) Also, I never got the fullsized Binge or Mildew although I really liked Mildew so I’m happy to have them! Stray Dog looks nice, maybe, for my eyebrows. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to find a real match for me so I have to try it still but maybe I can finally stop using Stash on my eyebrows! I know it sounds CRAZY to use a green plus shimmer but it somehow REALLY WORKS for me everyday, no lie! Wit it looking totally natural too! Weird but still awesome;) I LOVE how this set’s box opens! You could replace it w your own favs if you wanted, too, it kinda reminds me of the Shadow Vaults which they REALLY NEED to bring back! I have 4-5 of them & they really lighten my mind when I have to travel w my shadows, especially the discontinued colors, that they’ll not be in pieces when I open my luggage! I think they should always have that Vault available personally, we just keep buying more shades so now we need more Vaults! Sorry about that kinda off topic rant! It’s just been awhile since I got to blahblahblah so freely about my #1 LOVE! UDMakeup! (& any good, awesome makeup!) xo!


    • 1/11/11 15:43 the Muse:

      hey sparkly good to have you back and awesome vacay! Hope you had fun ;-D thanks so much for sharing your review, phew, awesome girl!


  • 1/12/11 2:11 Soo:

    I can’t wait to get this once it hits Sephora. I too am a fan of the UD liners. any idea why they made Perversion shorter than the others though?


    • 1/12/11 2:17 Soo:

      ok, so I’ve totally been behind on all the beauty blogs I follow and this set’s at Sephora online. hah, I’m slow.. off to go shopping!


    • 1/12/11 8:32 the Muse:

      they are all the same size Soo. Hope this helps!


  • 1/12/11 16:22 vivavoomz:

    I just bought 24/7 Jackpot set (travel-sized) because I wasn’t planning to get this but your review made me want to get it again.


    • 1/13/11 16:21 the Muse:

      go for it viv ;D


  • 1/14/11 22:12 cece:

    hey muse!
    have you had any issues with smell?? apparently some are saying their sets have a really bad odor, was this the case with yours?


    • 1/17/11 11:06 the Muse:

      no order here cece. That’s very strange, first time I heard about it.


    • 1/17/11 12:26 Soo:

      is it a plasticy smell? because mine has it and it can be kind of overpowering at times. :(
      and my Perversion is shorter than the rest of the liners


      • 1/17/11 21:47 cece:

        people say either a strong plastic smell or something like mold.


  • 1/22/11 19:40 Tania:

    Just ordered these! I’m so excited to use them! Thankfully I only have two repeats (Mildew & Baked) 😀

    I hope my set doesn’t smell…


  • 1/31/11 13:26 katrosado5:

    Finally got around to ordering these for my own VDay gift LOL. Just kidding about the VDay gift, but I really did order these this morning. :)


    • 2/1/11 10:17 the Muse:

      lol katros it’s your vday gift to yourself and what a great gift it is ;D!


  • 2/2/11 9:56 Kay:

    So, so on the verge of buying this…I think it’s just hit the UK online. Nine dupes including one of the exclusives, but that’s still six I DON’T have right?


    • 2/2/11 9:57 the Muse:

      RIGHT kay ;D


      • 2/19/11 15:44 Kay:

        I bought it. It’s amazing, I am in love! Don’t even want to test them out on my hand because then they won’t be in pristine condition – it’s been sat on top of my chest of drawers for a week and a half just so I can look at it!


        • 8/19/11 11:00 rose:

          makeup: porn for women


  • 2/8/11 17:16 katrosado5:

    I just got these in the mail. Very good price for that many UD full sized EL’s. Thanks for the review on this one Muse, I’m glad I ordered them after reading and seeing your swatches!


    • 2/10/11 12:46 the Muse:

      aw super katros ;-D enjoy hun!


  • 5/29/11 0:35 Tracy:

    Is it possible that many colors in the kit are not available for sale individually ? There are a few ones that I really love, but some of them, I just know I can’t wear…


    • 5/31/11 9:31 the Muse:

      some are exclusive to this set tracy but some are available on their own.
