Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils 15th Anniversary Collection

If you dont already know, Urban Decay has the creamiest, smooth gliding, long wearing eye pencils out there. These pencil liners don't tug at the lids, helping you make a solid, straight and pigmented line in one easy swipe. Some gals love their MUFE Aqua Eyes, but I let go of mine right after I tried the creamy goodness of UD 24/7's. ;)

This is a great set to have especially if you're just starting to grow your eye liner collection. It retails for USD92 which sounds insane but is actually a great deal considering a pencil costs USD18 each if bought separately. You get 9 permanent shades and 6 new and exclusive colors. Unfortunately, it is not available locally. A shout out to the lovely Kat for helping me get this LE set! <3

it's so nice to look at!

can you spot the difference between the regular and the LE eye pencils?
the pencil from the LE set has a different font for the logo and a "UD15" printed right before the pencil shade, it also has a glossy cap and end while the regular one has a matte finish.

(L-R) Stray Dog, Corrupt, Bourbon, Baked, Midnight Cowboy, Stash, Mildew, Perversion, Electric, Binge, Ransom, Asphyxia, Rockstar, Zero, Uzi

Bourbon is my everyday favorite for the soft but defined look it gives, Mildew is really nice for brown eyed gals, Midnight Cowboy is ideal for the lower waterline and I like to use Zero when going out at night. So far those are the only ones I've used. The FUN and vibrant colors are teasing me already. :)

I put the pencils to a test and tried taking them off using a cotton pad with alcohol but as you can see most of them stay put. Ironically, the "blackest black" Perversion is gone in a swipe.

Now let's talk about "Grind House", an awesome sharpener which also comes with the set. Ohmygosh. I never thought I would rave about a sharpener in my life but, this one just rocks!
It doesn't waste product and it leaves the edge of the pencil smooth so it doesn't poke your eye when the eyeliner color runs out. (I hope you get what I mean!)

I highly recommend Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils, just try one if you don't want to splurge on the whole set. Get the "Grind House" sharpener while you're at it! I'm sure you'll love it too!

Thanks for reading!

ps. sorry for the week-long absence lovelies! I've been sick since Friday and still battling the flu right now. What a wonderful way to start June! :(


  1. G! I hope you feel better soon. :) Everytime I see these liners I want to grab the whole set hahaha! :p

  2. I was glad that I could help you. I don't know how you can bear to use it since it is LE and quite special since the font and wording on the pencils are different. You've got me really curious about the pencil sharpener.


  3. Oh no, hope you get well soon and have plenty of rest. Great swatches, the colours all look beautiful. I especially like the look of Rockstar and Bourbon. It's great how well the stay after rubbing them off with alcohol.

    Thanks for such a lovely comment on my post x

  4. I have this set and love it! I love 24/7 pencils and this works out to be a bargain ;) It's enough eyeliners to last forever xD

    Hope you get well soon~! xxx

  5. aw no! I hope you feel better soon :) On a separate note, I think UD makes such pretty, creamy pencil liners! I do think they're on the expensive side, but at the same time that doesn't stop me from wanting to collect all the colors lol! And interesting, I have just a regular Maybelline sharpener that I really like, but I may have to go check out Grind House now.

  6. I have 24/7 envy right now!! That's a gorgeous collection.. drooled over it and sadly let it go lol. I really love the quality of the eyeliners.. I have the black one (zero) for daily wear :D

    Hope you feel better Georgina, I know it's such a bummer to get sick :(!

  7. as much as i love bourbon, Zero and Perversion smudged badly on me :( me no good for black liners muahahhaha! i love the other fun shades though!

  8. I love the 24/7 eyeliners, the colourful shades are the best. They make great eye shadows too!

  9. hope you'll feel better soon! which shade is now your favourite? Bourbon still ? :D

  10. Holy cakes so much colours! And they all so prettyyy. I only own a black MUFE liner and it kinda smudges on me (hmm it's been so long ago since I used it, actually it's been way too long since I've picked up a pencil liner in general haha) I should look into these highly raved UD liners one of these days.

  11. Sweetie, please get better soon! *hugs*

    This looks like a really lovely set. I'm kinda addicted to my liquid e/s but dang the colors on these are pretty awesome. =D

  12. hope you get better soon!

    wow what a set. all the colours look gorgeous!

  13. Hi G! Hope you're feeling much better.

    The UD 24/7 pencils are really awesome. I agree with BOURBON being an ideal everyday eyeliner. I think you can try the fun colors (like electric and binge) if you feel like a bit of a rockstar :). The blue eyeliners are great for enhancing brown eyes. I also like UD Pencils over MUFE. :)

  14. i love UD 24/7 liners!! Glad you are able to try them out. The colors are so unique too.

  15. Wow what an amazing post! so manyyy

    Hope you're feeling better. (:

  16. this set is so cool. too bad i had the mini set already so i passed on it. i love electric and asphyxia a lot!

  17. I adore 24/7 pencils. The colours are certainly not run of the mill!
    Hope you're doing OK!

  18. i wish i could try these liners they sound awesome especially since other people love them too. its so pricey though! wah! :(

  19. I'm down with flu too and sore throat. Plus my whole body aches, I feel dizzy and sleepy all the time, not a good combination =.=

    I'm still stuck at the price, US$ 92 is a huge amount!!


♡ thank you for leaving some love! ♡
