Quick Rundown

PROS
  • creamy formula but doesn't smudge
  • excellent lasting powers
  • glides on your waterline or upplashline, no tugging
  • more bang for your buck
  • super pigmented

  • CONS
  • can be difficult to remove; requires a really good makeup remover
  • Lucky, Covet, and Lust has some glitters

  • When I found out that they brought this set back at Sephora, I made sure that this made this way to my shopping cart.

    This set is definitely a steal! For five travel sized liners at $29 is way better than shelling out $16 for a full-sized version. I'm glad that Urban Decay had come out with this set because it is a great way to try their eyeliners out with a variety of colors, and maybe one day will lead to an upgrade to a full size.

    What I really like about this eyeliners are they are super pigmented. They as vibrant as the actual pencils are. The colored eyeliners are excellent for more playful looks or you just want that pop of color in your eyes. They're good by itself for those lazy days or paired up with your favorite eyeshadow combinations.

    The eyeliners are very soft and has a creamy formula, but surprisingly, it doesn't smudge or budge. Also, since the eyeliners are soft and creamy, application is easy because it just glides. I've been a fluidline or gel liners kind of gal when it comes lining my upper lashline, and avoided using pencil eyeliners (except for the waterline) like a plague just because pencils just never gave me that nice and smooth line that fluidline or gel eyeliners do sans tugging, but Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils definitely has changed my mind.

    It just really makes me cringe when you have to pull your eyelids to get that neat line (Don't do it. It only equates to eye wrinkles). This is the only pencil eyeliner so far that I've used that's an ease to put on my upper lashline because there's no tugging required nor does it travel up to my crease despite of its creamy formula. And, this is definitely my eyeliner of choice for my waterline since it stays way better than most eyeliners. It does travel to your lower lashline, but not to the point that you end up with racoon eyes and make a hot mess of yourself.

    These pencils have really good staying powers and won't budge that sometimes they're a pain taking them off. You would really need a good makeup remover because soap and water just wont cut it especially if you use it on your waterline or lower lashline. So soak that Qtip up with a good makeup remover to clean it up. I also noticed that some of the eyeliners in this set has some glitters in it like Lucky, Covet, and Lust that tends to linger around even after you've taken off the color.

    Final Thoughts: Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners have definitely become staple items in my makeup bag. Also, this set, it makes it easier for me to stash them in purse or makeup bag for those emergency days of running late without makeup.

    13. fuz: I'm going to have to try the MUFE now because of you since you rave so much about it :)

      vivi: I guess it all depends on the person, but luckily it hasn't disappointed me yet. I just love how they glide like buttah on your lids.

      Angie: LOL. Lucky is an easy color to work with. I should've taken pictures of it when they were brand spankin new. But thanks for the warm wishes. Hopefully my flight doesn't get delayed like my parents so I'll have time to shop at the Narita Airport!

      Christiana: I hope you find that eyeliner. Share the deets when you do.

      Sarah: LOL. definitely play worthy!

      Mimi: You can try a neutral eyeshadow and then line your upperlash line or waterline with a pop of color.

      Yas: you're welcome babes!

      Yumeko: I still have yet to try MUFE too!

      hairs to beauty: I hope you get to try them soon! They're amazing!

      imee: $30 might be a lot but I guess if you break it down per piece it's not too bad???

      Ate Ren: Maybe you can hint it to your bf *wink wink* lol.

      Tammy: Zero is my favorite too :D. And Lucky
