Urban Decay Space Cowboy, Dark Force, Demolition Razorsharp Liquid Eyeliners

Urban Decay Space Cowboy 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkly sheen. It had opaque coverage in one stroke, which was a total surprise, as it was a lighter and more shimmery shade–and those have not performed well overall! The texture was still more watery than not, but it applied easily and lasted for ten hours. Chanel Or Rose (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Mari(gold) (70) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Brassy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Goldrush (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Retrograde, Galactic, Street, Zodiac Razorsharp Liquid Eyeliners

Urban Decay Retrograde 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a blackened purple with lighter purple, pink, and blue shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage if I applied a second layer after the first one had dried down. (Trying to improve coverage while it is drying just moves the product around and creates an uneven, streaky result!) Once dry, the eyeliner stayed in place for the ten hours I wore it for. Zoeva Mr. Marvelous (P, $7.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Cute Robot (P, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Purple Tang (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Th(ink) (44) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Empire (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Evil Twin (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner (Part 2)

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).

NARS Velvet Eyeliners (Part 2)

NARS Black Moon Velvet Liner ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep black with a satin finish. It had rich color payoff in one stroke, and it was easy to layer and build as desired, too–it didn’t lift or cause the color to streak.

NARS Black Moon Velvet Liner

NARS Velvet Eyeliners (Part 1)

NARS Kaliste Velvet Liner ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nice pigmentation in one stroke, which was buildable to totally opaque coverage with another pass. The texture was lightly creamy without moving around on the skin, but it didn’t tug or feel uncomfortably sharp on the lash line either. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before migrating to the outer corners noticeably. bareMinerals 1PM (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Dramatic Teal (LE, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Practice Makes Perfect (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).
