Urban Decay Foxy Four-Way 24/7 Double Ended Eye Pencil Set

foxyfourway-3500000

     Urban Decay Foxy Four-Way 24/7 Double Ended Eye Pencil Set is introducing three new shades to their already rather large collection of long-wearing waterproof eyeliners. Without further hesitation the new shades are:

1. Deep End (bright shimmery teal)

2. Sabbath (matte navy blue)

3. Muse (pale shimmery brown).

     This value set also includes Zero (classic black), Demolition (matte brown), Delinquent (deep shimmery purple), Stash (dark green/gold) as well as Perversion (ultra black). I have heard several people say that they don’t understand why Urban Decay keeps Zero around now that they have Perversion. I completely disagree! It is utter genius that Urban Decay has two shades of black. When you want a softer black eye pencil for everyday wear, reach for Zero. If you are feeling more daring (or goth), go for Perversion.

     Urban Decay Foxy Four-Way 24/7 Double Ended Eye Pencil Set retails for $39 is available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

Urban Decay Double Ended 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Duo

     I love Urban Decay. Urban Decay cosmetics is one of my absolute favorite brands. Although I have so much love for Urban Decay, I was not immediately thrilled when I was given this Double Ended 24/7 Glide-on Pencil Duo for consideration. Double ended anything kind of always makes me look the other way at first glance. I prefer singular full-sized items as opposed to half-sized double ended cosmetics. I warmed up to this recently released eyeliner duo when I opened the package and saw the shades that were included.

     First off, I can always use another eyeliner/lip pencil sharpener. So, I liked that. But then I swatched the colors and realized that these are shades that I will actually use! Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure (Sorry that my lighting sucks!): 

“Stash” and “Sabbath”

“Stash” is a dark green with gold glitter. Sounds gawdy, I know. But it’s actually a very subtle and sophisticated color that pairs nicely with “Sabbath” – a matte navy blue shade. “Sabbath” is exclusive to this eye pencil duo. I’m a sucker for exclusive items. Here’s a pic of me wearing them to show how they give a pop of color without being too loud.

     “Corrupt” is a dark brown with a hint of shimmer and “Zero” is a traditional black liner. Here’s a pic of me doing a dramatic cat eye with “Zero” and wearing “Corrupt” on my waterline as well as blended below my lower lash line. This combo made me feel a little daring so I blended “Corrupt” as a thin line slightly passing “Zero”. Here are the swatches (apologies again for my crappy lighting):

“Corrupt” & “Zero”

     Although I was not crazy about the double-endedness of it all at first, these are actually nice colors to add to my makeup collection. All of these eyeliners are waterproof; and I love how blendable Urban Decay’s formula is. The pencils are soft but not so soft that they break on my skin when I apply them. The formulation is creamy and does not tug at my skin. Because they are waterproof, pencils from Urban Decay are extremely long-wearing. I can count on the color fading little to not at all.

     I was given this pencil duo for consideration and have blogged my honest opinions and experience.

     Do you have this? What has your experience been? I would love to hear your opinions, experiences and tips. Please comment and subscribe!

Until later,
