Y’know when there’s certain products that have been raved about for years but for some reason they just haven’t ended up in your shopping basket? That’s me and Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencils.
I’ve always heard such great things about them – great pigmentation, fantastic lasting power and they smudge pretty well too. I’m not sure why I’d never tried them, I guess unless I’m off out on an evening I don’t really wear liner. Au natural, cheeky.
In the January sales, I put an end to this disgraceful behaviour and purchased the Black Market Set for just under £20. These are slightly smaller than the full size but for a starter kit they’re spot on.
The set included 6 darker shades:
West – A dark brown pearl
Desperation – A deep taupe/grey matte
Black Market – charcoal black satin
Riot – smokey grey matte with violet and fuchsia micro-sparkle
Apathy – metallic olive green shimmer
Ink – A deep navy blue satin
I love the pigmentation of these, they’re very deep colours and they translate really well. My favourite shades are Apathy, West and Ink. They’re not your usual, boring black and add a bit of a different look especially under the eyes when smudged out. They last really well – I’ve even used them for a winged eyeliner look and they’ve lasted all day with no smudging. Once they’re on, they set pretty quickly.
I’m definitely eyeing up some other shades, especially as I’ve seen a few gorgeous green shades. Luckily, this fab set is still available at House of Fraser.
Have you tried these?
