Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a water-resistant, long-wearing, “intensely pigmented” liquid liner with an ultra-precise (thin) applicator. There are cream shades and metallic shades; the cream ones have a shiny finish (so none dry matte), while the metallic ones have a more pearly sheen. They require 20-30 seconds worth of shaking, or else you’ll end up with a more watery, sheerer consistency that is hard to work with. If shaken for long enough, everything mixes and most shades are semi-opaque to opaque and thin without feeling watered down, but it is a very wet, thin formula that takes 15-30 seconds to dry down (depends on the shade–metallics dried faster for me, on the whole). Once it dries down, it does seem to shrink slightly and I can feel it cling to my skin a bit. The applicator is thin and flexible enough to maneuver around the curve of the lid. Something that was somewhat frustrating is that the formula is so thin and wet that I do get some splattering when I open shades as well as when I apply (like a dot or two randomly on face).
These remove pretty easily with just water and a light rub, but they don’t come off just rubbing with a dry fingertip at all, so removing those spots requires real makeup remover or a dampened brush/cotton swab. During removal, the eyeliner flakes off in small chunks.. If I just sprayed the eyeliner with water and lightly dab or blot (or even just let the water evaporate), they didn’t smudge, fade, or run. I didn’t have any issues with the wear of them–they all went for a full 10-hours before I removed.
Urban Decay Bump 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright white with a satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which applied fairly fluidly and didn’t skip. In order to get truly opaque coverage, a second layer is needed, but be sure to wait until the first layer dries down. It lasted for ten hours on me. Make Up For Ever M16 Matte White (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Polar Ice (P, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Fascinating (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Stila Alpine (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Santa Monica Blvd. (P, $24.00) is brighter, cooler (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
Urban Decay Cuff 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage, even after I spent a good bit of time shaking up the tube; on the best application, I was able to get semi-opaque coverage, but three of the four times I tried swatching for better coverage, it was just semi-sheer. If you want to layer this for true opacity, just make sure to let the first layer dry. MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Cuff (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Diamonds are Forever (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Silverstroke (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
