Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set Review & Swatches
The Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($36) is a set of six eyeliners five of which are brand new, exclusive shades that Urban Decay is releasing with their Holiday 2013 Collection.
Let’s take a look!
The Urban Decay Black Market 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set is more about the sultry as hey, I think I always associate UD eyeliners with popping shades but this is a more traditional range of shades that will work great with smoky eyes. Each pencil is 0.03 oz in size versus Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils normal size of 0.04 oz size.
The fact this contains five new shades out of the six included is very exciting. Sometimes this does induce panic as fans scramble to stock up on their favorite shades but I honestly don’t think it’s an issue as Urban Decay at some point does add exclusive shades to their general catalog in my experience. Earlier this year Urban Decay revamped their Glide-On Eyeliner Collection and it now includes a whooping 39 colors! Many of you junkies out there probably own all those shades already so it is nice that this set includes new colors that you might not already own. And for the new girl, what a perfect way to try out these gorgeously creamy pencils!
I’ve reviewed Urban Decay’s eyeliner formula time and time again and I’m sure it needs no introduction from me. These are so creamy and they wear long and strong on my drier eyes without fading or migrating. Some of these shades aren’t as pigmented as the normal Urban Decay range and some are even matte in finish and not as glossy looking which means you’ll have to build the shade up a little bit for the best color pay off. For me it’s a more “safer” selection of shades than Urban Decay typically releases. You’ll have to wait for Ocho Loco 2 (review upcoming) for a few more daring shades that the Black Market Set doesn’t touch on. I think the set will gain the attention of those who wear smoky eye looks a lot as some of these shades are essential for both colored and traditional smoky eyeshadow looks.
