Sorry for being so invisible today but it’s been a rather busy Monday for your Muse! Tis 7pm and I’m quite happy to be home finally. I’m looking forward to a hot Lush bath, my weekly fix of Gossip Girl (the Muse has a soft spot for Lonely Boy!), and getting this review of Urban Decay’s hot new Holiday 24/7 Eye Pencils out to you!
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-Eye Pencils are now available in a 5 piece set in two color variations! Sweet right?
Each set contains five mini Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencils for $29 USD which works out to about $5.80 USD per a pencil. The pencils are a tad bit skinnier and shorter than the regular size version but at $5.80 USD each compared to $16 USD for one shade, the Muse says, it’s a steal and a deal! Granted I love the large version and own several colors but I really like the idea of shelling out $13 USD more and getting five shades instead of one! Variety is the spice of life after all!
Travel Size versus Regular Size
The two sets available are Velvet Rope and VIP together they makeup nearly 75% of the colors offered in the Urban Decay 24/7 line. The line consists of a total of 15 shades so if you purchase the two sets you’ll end up with 10 of the 15 shades available! A nice little stash of color…great right? The Muse takes all these things into consideration for you!
Now these are postively my favorite liners out of all the liners I own. They have a gorgeous formula that’s super soft, super creamy, and beautifully blendable. Oh did I mention waterproof? No raccoon eyes here!
Out of the two sets VIP is my favorite considering it has the more vibrant shades of the two sets. VIP contains all of the following shades:
- Lucky-Metallic Cooper
- Covet-Peacock Green
- Lust-Royal Purple
Velvet Rope contains more neutral shades that aren’t as bold as VIP but that doesn’t take away from the colors in this set being just as nice. Velvet Rope contains all of the following shades:
- Yeyo-Pure White (Oh my god awesome Twiggy shade! So Mod!)
- 1999-Plum with specks of Gold
- Bourbon-Brown with specks of Gold
- Stash-Olive Green
The sets are ideal as gifts but spoiling yourself with ‘em can’t hurt either! Even though it’s 76 degrees today in New York my head is all about awesome Holiday offerings from Urban Decay!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-Eye Pencil Sets in VIP and Velvet Rope are definately Muse Approved for purchase!

You have to be excited about this post.
Urban Decay hasn’t had lipstick for a very long time and now relaunches with 22 shades for Fall 2008. They went right ahead and did it big time baby!
I can’t begin to tell you how exciting it was getting four of these bad boys to test out and review for you. They are simply thee most gorgeous lippies around at the moment as far as the Muse is concerned!
Let’s focus on the awesome packaging first. Each shade of lipstick is housed in a large, heavy container with two-toned light and dark purple swirls decorating the outer lid with a goth mini dagger handle on top. The casing of the lipstick tube is a shiny metallic purple that contrasts beautifully with the swirly lid. If that wasn’t enough of a presentation Urban Decay went an extra mile and embedded each lipstick with Urban Decay and a tiny dagger. The entire packaging creates not only a posh feel to each lipstick but also holds an edge of dark and dangerous! Just how the Muse likes her lipstick! Dark, edgy, dangerous, and most importantly posh!
Now I read a review recently that said the formula was horribly gritty due to the mass amount of glitter in the lipstick and that’s not completely true. Depending on the color you choose the amount of glitter may be more or less! It also deserves to be mentioned that even if the color is overdosing on heavy shimmer and glitter the texture was in no way gritty. I felt like each color I tried had a wonderfully moisturizing, melty formula that simply glided onto my lips leaving behind beautifully pigmented popping color!
I’m completely serious when I say I want every single color for my very own (After all I do own every single shadow Urban Decay has put out thus far)! Go ahead and try to stop me from buying all these for my collection! I’m completely in lust and love with these.
Strangely enough I have also read that the lipsticks had an overpowering smell and taste but I didn’t notice either. I did notice a tiny faint perfumed cherry taste to some of the colors where as others had no taste at all.
The shades I tried out were 5150, Voodoo, Gravity, and Hotpants. Out of those four I wasn’t loving Hotpants. Hotpants is a heavy duty frost and I just couldn’t love it since it made my face look full and very round (as if it isn’t all those things already right? yak!).
The other three shades fit me perfectly and were very deep and perfect for fall! 5150 was my favorite. It’s advertised as a coral but I felt like it was a cherry shade! It looks beautiful paired up with pink shadow!
The other two shades that completely captured my heart were Voodoo and Gravity both of which were really deep shades that are completely flattering for the Fall. Voodoo is a deep, dark pink that almost looks maroon where as Gravity is a rich red.
Oops forgot to label this little guy!
Here are some swatches of each shade! As you can see 5150 does look kinda Coral like in my swatch however it comes out very cherry red on my lips!
Here are some pictures of a MAC lipstick side by side with the new Urban Decay lipstick! You can’t tell all that much but the Urban Decay dwarfs the MAC lipstick! It’s alot heavier as well due to the posh packaging of the Urban Decay lipsticks!
I’m slapping the coveted Muse Approval on these new lipsticks from Urban Decay! They sport beautiful packaging, a gorgeous pigmented, moisturizing formula, and just that little goth dagger alone makes it worth a purchase!
The Muse likes ‘em! You need these. Go now get some! Urban Decay Lipsticks are on sale at both Urban Decay and Sephora! Have a lookiee at the 22 shades and tell me which you are loving, liking, lemming!
The Muse wants to try:
Ugh choices, choices, choices!
