Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

REMIX!!!!! The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner get a relaunch for the Holiday 2013 season peeps and they are packed full of gorgeous glitter. I personally eat glitter sprinkled on my corn flakes in the morning but most peeps reserve it for the Holiday season as we feel a little freer wearing shimmering shades during that special time of the year.

However…….as far as I’m concerned Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners can be used any damn day you want for sparkly eye looks.

I think one of my first UD memories is probably owning an Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. I was convinced that I couldn’t wear a smoky eye look without lining my lashes with a fine line of silver sparkly goodness that UD’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner provided.

Urban Decay decided to give Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners a push for the Holiday season with a new look and two new shades. The liners are water based with a heavy dose of glittery goodness suspended in that clear liner base. I find you can multitask with these in a variety of ways so you aren’t left using them as a liner only but more on that layer.

The revamped formula features a cool new lightening bolt deco on the bottle as well as a shiny gunmetal cap with the UD logo. The same precise, thin tipped brush and glittery formula it’s still here. The glitter is suspended in a gel formula so it never separates…this is a totally true story as I own a shade for over ten years (I don’t use it anymore but it is still part of my collection) and it look as fresh as the day I purchased it.

I used to adore completing my looks with a thin layer across my upper lash line. It just adds some awesome sparkle to an eye look! But I also used to stroke the brush across my lashes to encrust them with a jewel-like layer of glitter! And finally you can use them as an overcoat on top of eyeshadow to add a bit of sparkle. The possibilities are endless and you aren’t limited to your eyes…use ’em to draw on your face for a Halloween look too! Once you apply they set rather quickly and don’t budget or flaky off into eyes. I found lining with glitter my hands are less shaking than with a liquid liner, go figure.

I’d just like to say if they did a Dopeshow shade in say pinkish red, well, I’d totally haul a case. I’m Manson’s fangirl bitch! What would you name your Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner and what would the color be?

  • Ember

    Do you know how much they are going to cost? I like them but I don’t know how much I’d spend on it. I got a sephora brand in their clearance section once and I do like it! I don’t use it a whole lot but it’s nice to have.

  • Celine

    As pretty and perfect sparkles are for the holiday season, last time I tried a liquid eyeliner same idea as this, it burned my eyelids.

  • Shelly

    I do love them. They are gorgeous! I just wish they were more everyday wearable. How do u suggest getting more practical use out of them? Would love suggestions 🙂

  • Sayre

    I’d have to get a Dopeshow too. My shade name would be – “Ride The Lightning” which would be platinum with iridescent turquoise and purple glitter.

  • Abby

    Did they do away with Mullet and Groupie?? I have those two and midnight cowboy and I love them.

  • Cat

    I am in LOVE with Distortion! You take some of the best product photos I’ve ever seen… and even you weren’t able to capture it’s magic! The holographic glitter is absolutely amazing! Since the “old” formulations are on sale on the UD website, I bought THREE! LOL How often do I actually have enough guts to wear it out? Ummm… maybe once a month at the most! LOL But I wear it around the house more often because it makes me feel magical (and my husband likes it when I feel magical)!

    • the Muse

      wow thanks cat huge compliment 🙂 good for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 Aw hell you can wear it out especially during the Holidays no one looks down on glitter for the holidays 😀
