Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Several shades of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) have been discontinued. Urban Decay made suggestions for what to use instead, and these are my thoughts on them along with comparison swatches.
1999 is a reddish plum with gold, plum, and bronze shimmer. It is much redder and browner compared to Vice; and then too red compared to Underground. Neither is comparable.
Binge is a cool-toned, navy blue with a pearly sheen. Sabbath is darker, cooler-toned, and matte, so it has a completely different effect when worn, as Sabbath is so much more intense.
Covet is a deepened green-based teal with a pearly sheen. It is much greener compared to Junkie, which has larger sparkle (gold, at that) and a stronger blue base.
Crash is a darkened, plummy eggplant with plum pearl. It is closest to Rockstar, as Rockstar is just slightly darker. Delinquent is purpler, less plum.
Deviant is a medium blue with silver sparkle. It is just slightly more subdued compared to Abyss, but the two are rather similar. Chaos is nothing like either, and I would not even consider it in the same family!
Eldorado is medium gold with strong orange undertones and a slightly metallic finish. Goldmine is yellower and less metallic. Honey (which has long been discontinued) is nothing like either gold.
Flipside is a medium blue with a hint of teal and a pearly sheen. Deep End is noticeably bluer.
Graffiti is a springy, grass green with silver sparkle. I find that it’s hard to dupe this shade, and Freak is lighter and significantyl warmer, more yellowy in comparison.
Gunmetal is a darkened gray with neutral undertones and a pearly sheen. Uzi is much, much darker (closer to black), while Mushroom is so much browner. Neither is at all similar!
Lucky is a darkened copper with a slightly metallic finish. Scorch is lighter, more golden–it’s not really that orange-copper kind of color.
Lust is a cool-toned, dark purple with slight pearl. Chaos is by no means a dupe; as it is lighter, brighter, and has a lot of blue in it.
Ransom is a medium-dark, pink-ish purple with a slight pearl to its finish. Psychedelic Sister is pinker, so it appears a bit warmer and brighter, while layering Asphyxia over it helps it appear closer, it is still brighter.
Generally speaking, I don’t think most of them are really dupes. They eliminated cool-toned purples in place of pink and plum-based ones, and I think now there’s a hole in the color range as a result. Graffiti is a more unusual shade, and Freak is no replacement; it’s a nice addition, but it’s not a replacement. I also think Lust and Lucky have no real comparable shades in the range. Products and shades get discontinued, so it’s not a surprise to see some of these make an exit to accommodate new shades. I recommend checking our eyeliner comparison series to see if maybe another brand has something closer to a shade you’ll be missing (or stock up on it before it’s gone).
