Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash Review, Swatches, Photos
Urban Decay’s Friends and Family Event is on baby! This is the time you can take advantage of hauling all you can at 20% Off. If you don’t already own the Naked Palette you’re a stinker, go get it, NOW!
I feel like I’m pretty locked up tight on the Urban Decay front so I’m not taking advantage of the sale. Yes, I admit, there is such a thing as too much Urban Decay. Thankfully I’m pretty stocked up on everything from the brand now I’m just sitting around patiently waiting for Spring 2012 to release. I’m positive Urban Decay Spring 2012 will probably be something stupid awesome, another Book of Shadows maybe?! With ALL new shades and no Midnight Cowboy? Yes, yes, please make it happen!
For those who are hauling at the sale might I suggest grabbing yourself the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash?
Imma tell you this is a nice little deal kids.
At $34 retail for five 24/7 Shadow Pencils it was already a nice haul as that’s $6.80 per pencil where as dishing out for a single shade will set you back $20 bucks. The pencils are mini so you are taking a hit in the size department but not by much as these are 0.1 oz for a full size versus 0.088 oz for the mini.
- Delinquent (dark purple with bright purple sparkle)
- Rehab (taupe)
- Juju (frosted taupe)
- Sin (champagne)
- Clash (bright turquoise with silver sparkle)
The thing about these pencils is they don’t have a super great glide. They aren’t really super creamy so they glide on a bit roughly in my opinion but……the joy is not only the pigmentation but also the incredible wear. Yes, it does take a little extra time to get them on correctly and they do have a rougher texture and a bit of a hard drag across lids but they have a sweet build up and an incredible wear time that even the oilest of oily lids can appreciate. I can happily use them sans primer and they’ll wear, wear, wear all day into the evening and the next day if I’m feeling fancy enough to sleep with my makeup on (that would never happen but just sayin’).
I normally use them alone but they’ll happily cocktail with any of your favorite shadows, pigments, or minerals to act as a base. Worn alone or with shadow on top I experience a super long lasting eye look for eight or more hours straight. The fact they adhere so well to my lids is a plus since that means they make fall out very minimal if I’m topping with my favorite piggies and loose minerals.
The best news?
You can get them for $27.20 thanks to the Friends and Family Sale bring each pencil down to $5.44!
I admit the rougher texture is a bit of a negative on these but if you have issues with keeping your eyeshadow in place, you’ll seriously love the wear time on these. If you have Mally Beauty Eye Primer hanging around you can use a little on lids to ease the glide on these pencils. It works a treat.
