REVIEW: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Shadow Pencils

First let me say that I LOVE these shadow pencils..but then again I am usually happy with most items from UD ;)

What Urban Decay says about them:

Big and blendable, this 2-in-1 waterproof 24/7 shadow pencil keeps going as long as you do. Our next generation of famous 24/7 pencils can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner, or both!

They’re crease-proof, they’re waterproof… it’s the next generation of 24/7 Pencils! Our Shadow Pencils deliver incredible color payout, but feel lightweight. The new fat shape allows you to cover large areas more quickly. Use the thin tip as eyeliner, or the side of the tip as a generous swipe of eyeshadow. Luscious drop-dead shades make you feel every inch the creative type, as you blend shimmer, cream and sparkle finishes. Skip the powder shadow brushes and water – our pencils make it easier than ever to get vibrant eyeshadow looks on the go. Experiment with multiple shades layered together, then blend away for an unbelievable effect that sets and stays put. All shades are paraffin, mineral oil, and paraben-free.

 These are like jumbo pencils they retail for $20 and come with 2.8g 0.10 oz of product

I have 4 colors  (descriptions from sephora.com)
Midnight Cowboy  - beige with silver sparkle
Morphine - light purple with pale blue shift
Delinquent - dark purple with bright purple sparkle
Clash - bright turquoise with silver sparkle


Midnight Cowboy is a very pretty shade - If you dont like the eyeshadow version of this give this pencil a try..You are sure to love it ;) It does have the glitters/shimmers in it but they stay put and you are left with the prettiness and none of the fall out. You cant go wrong ;) 

Morphine is a absolutely gorgeous color, Its duochromey and makes MAC's Stars and Rockets eyeshadow pop ;) Its probably my favorite to look at!

Delinquent is like a blackened purple with like the description says bright purple sparkles..Its awesome
Clash is a very bright turquoise blue color and its just beautiful!



All of the shades are gorgeous and very pigmented. They are creamy and they dont pull or tug at your sensitive eye area. I obviously have nothing bad to say about them! haha! These do not smudge or budge after they are dried, they stay put even if you rub them..I am sitting here now trying to smudge them and rubbing my finger across the swatches on my hand and instead of fading or smearing into each other I think they are actually getting brighter!! haha gotta love Urban Decay!

The colors I have do have shimmer..The only one that doesnt have shimmer is the morphine color but it does have a sheen, So if you dont like shimmer or glitter you may not like these shadows, The glitters dont spread smudge or run and are apart of the actual pencil but if you are a all matte girl might want to check out other shades instead of the ones Ive shown here ;) 

I seriously want all of the colors of these shadow pencils. They are wonderful, quick and easy! You cant go wrong!
