Favorite Product Friday: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide Eyeliner

I rarely wear eye shadow, but I LOVE eyeliner and wear it almost every day.  I have light eyes, and think it really helps define them so that they don’t disappear into my face.  So of course I have tried a lot of different eyeliners over the years and was in fact a fan of MAC for a long time (I still have one that I use, which you can see here).  But a couple of years ago when I kept seeing Urban Decay touted as the best black  eyeliner in several of my favorite fashion magazine (including Allure and Glamour), I knew I had to try it.  And I have to tell you, once I tried it, I never looked back.

Black is a little harsh for my coloring so the first color I tried was Stash (a greenish/gold) and it wasn’t just the gorgeous color that won me over, it was the product as a whole.  24/7 Glide is the softest and creamiest liner I have ever used-no pressing or stretching of your lids to get a nice even application.   And because it goes on so soft and so easy, I was initially concerned that it would smudge or melt away during the day, but that was not the case at all.  This liner lasts, and lasts, and lasts.  It doesn’t smear or fade away-it looks exactly the same when I take it off at night as it does when I put it on in the morning.  And while I probably shouldn’t admit this, I have had several lazy nights where I have slept in my make up (yikes!) but wake up with it looking exactly the same as it did the day before. And perhaps even more amazing than that, despite its staying power, it comes off easily with eye makeup remover or face wash in the shower.

I can’t express enough how much I love this eyeliner.  And not only is the product itself fabulous, they offer so many colors which range in a spectrum from wild to natural.  In fact, my mom and aunties now use these liners, as does my sister-in-law, lots of my friends, and several of my co-workers.  And everyone I know who has tried this product is now a convert too.  So if you are looking for a new eyeliner, this is truly the one to try.   People ask me all the time how I am able to keep my makeup looking the same throughout the day (without any touch ups), and this little liner is just one of my many secrets.

Happy weekend!


P.S.  My favorite colors are:  Stash, Oil Slick, Demolition, Bourbon, and Crash.  There is also a 24/7 Glide Eyeshadow pencil which I have not tried, but it gets rave reviews. Check out reviews for both products here and here.

  1. Thank you for this post! I’m always on the hunt for great eyeliners. I’m terrible with liquid, but most pencil are painful as can be if they’re too sharp, too dull, the edges are scratchy… golly I sound like a whiner. Anyways… thanks for this post, I’ll definitely try one of these shades. Black is a bit much for me, too. I love greens, so Stash it is:) “like”d you on facebook. Come say hi, follow if you like. XO

    1. You don’t sound like a whiner at all!! I was totally in the same boat and can’t do liquid either-so I was SO happy to find this pencil. I hope you love it! And I will definitely follow you back. Happy weekend!!! xx

    2. And Hannah, I just followed your blog and saw you live in Montana. I am actually from Montana (Kalispell) and lived in Bozeman for a couple of years. Small world!!! And despite the long, cold winters, Montana is the BEST!!! 🙂

    1. I have tried the MAC khols and they would probably be my second favorite. I kind of feel like they tend to dry out over time though and can be a little hard/painful to apply. The Urban Decay ones are definitely my favorite. The ONLY thing I like better about the MAC khos is they last a little longer. Hope that helps!
