It is a blessing and a curse when a friend says “Hey, so I saw a display of Urban Decay stuff for sale at Nordstrom Rack. You should check it out.”
Thanks to my friend, I paid more than I would had I just gone and gotten the Naked Palette I was opining about still not having…but I got THREE UD PALETTES! *pocket book groaning* And I also snagged a couple NYX colors and a jar off Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof gel liner in Deep Purple…for 50% off.
Here is what I snagged:
I feel late to the party on these, as they are so wildly popular that UD recently added 28 new colors to the line (yes that number is not a typo). Okay, to be fair, I had an understandable bias–I have yet to have found an eye pencil in my entire life that didn’t migrate on me. Even when I didn’t have the fine lines that age has blessed me with, with every liner I ever tried I had at least some minor form of raccoon eyes within a few hours, and pencils were the worst offenders. Makeup setting sprays helped, but never completely mitigated this, and I don’t want to wear a setting spray every day. So I only kept a few pencils around that I felt I “should” have, and no more–black, brown, white, and only recently a blue (because I am obsessed, remember?)–and rarely used them.
Enter UD’s 24/7 Eye Pencils (belatedly) to my life. I was curious, but resisted. I read so many amazing reviews, but it was only when they expanded the line so extensively that I knew I had to finally break down. Now, I am a proud owner of the Urban Decay Foxy Four-Way 24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil Set. For a not-so-low-low price of $39, there are 8 colors in this pack, all of which I could totally see using regularly. In particular, I am MAD for Deep End (blue! shocking!), as well as Delinquent (purple! double-shocking!) and Stash (earthy green-gold). And the big question: do they last without migrating?
