Urban Decay Ocho Loco 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set


Urban Decay Ocho Loco 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set

One Sweet Deal for Your Eyes

Urban Decay Ocho Loco 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($59.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes eight shades: Hustle (medium brown metallic), Junkie (teal with bright gold shimmer), LSD (navy with bright turquoise shimmer), Mushroom (taupe-pewter metallic), Perversion (blackest-black matte), Psychedelic Sister (bright purple shimmer), Rockstar (darkest eggplant), and Stash (dark green/gold).  It also includes Grindhouse, which is a sharpener.

  • Hustle is a medium-dark brown with subtly warm undertones and bronze sparkle and sheen. It has good pigmentation in a single pass. Chanel Brun-Cuivre is just a touch darker with a red undertone. Urban Decay Bourbon has less sparkle and a stronger red undertone. MAC Lord It Up is darker.
  • Junkie is a blue-based teal with gold and teal sparkle. It has decent color payoff in a single pass but needs to be layered to pop. Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy is greener and has no sparkle. MAC Undercurrent is exactly the same.
  • LSD is a blackened navy blue with lighter blue sparkle. The color payoff was rather disappointing, and you definitely need to go back and forth to get decent opacity. MAC Petrol Blue is much, much richer and bluer. MAC Industrial is a bit lighter.
  • Mushroom is a gray-brown taupe with a shimmer-sheen. The pigmentation in a single go is decent. Urban Decay Underground was the only possible dupe I could think of, but it is much browner.
  • Perversion is a rich, deep black with a matte finish. It has good color payoff in a single pass. MAC Black Black, MAC Feline, Giorgio Armani #1 are all very similar.
  • Psychedelic Sister is a medium violet purple with subtle pink-red undertones and a soft sheen. The color payoff was good, and for a purple, noteworthy. MAC Designer Purple is a smidgen darker and has sparkle. MAC Rich Purple is darker, less pink.
  • Rockstar is a dark eggplant purple with burgundy shimmer. It has good pigmentation in one pass. Chanel Cassis is matte. Urban Decay Crash is very comparable.
  • Stash is an olive-green with antique gold shimmer. The color payoff is really good in a single go. MAC Buried Treasure is slightly darker. Stila Moray is a bit greener.

If you’ve ever wanted to try Urban Decay’s eyeliners or you enjoy them and want more of them, grabbing this set is a brilliant way to go, because you’re getting $162 worth of product for $59.  Grindhouse is the only sharpener I actually use; it’s a dual-sharpener so you can sharpen both regular eyeliners as well as the jumbo-sized pencils.  I use it for Urban Decay’s eyeliners as well as any other eyeliner or jumbo-sized pencil I need sharpened. Each eyeliner is full-sized, and normally, full-sized eyeliners retail for $19.  Not all of these shades are available individually, so if you want shades like Hustle, LSD, Mushroom, Psychedelic Sister, or Junkie, you’re going to have to pick this up.

The formula is good overall, though pigmentation tends to be mostly opaque, some shades do fall short.  All shades in this set are buildable, so you can get opaque color if desired, just not necessarily in one pass.  The least pigmented shades from this set were Junkie and LSD.  The most pigmented shades were Perversion, Rockstar, and Stash.  I usually get around eight hours with no fading or smudging with Urban Decay’s eyeliner formula, and I’ve been wearing them for years. All eight shades felt creamy and glided across the skin easily without skipping.

Urban Decay Whiskey/Zero 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil


Urban Decay Whiskey/Zero 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Can’t Decide Between Brown and Black?

Urban Decay Whiskey/Zero 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($12.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “rich brown” and “zealous black.” It costs less than a full-sized eyeliner ($19), because it’s half the size–but you do get to try two shades. Unfortunately, Whiskey is not available individually, though Zero is, in case that’s the side you would use most often!

Whiskey is a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a faint sheen. It has good color payoff in a snigle pass, and it’s a nice alternative to black, because it’s lighter and brighter. Urban Decay Bourbon has bronze sparkle and has less orange undertones. MAC Brownborder is darker.

Zero is a soft black. The pigmentation in one pass is decent but I recommend going back and forth at least once to get truly opaque color. MAC Engraved and MAC Graphblack are similar. Urban Decay Perversion is much darker.

I’m a fan of the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil formula, because it’s long-wearing, pigmented, creamy, and easy to apply.  It was my very favorite formula for several years!  I still reach for shades from the range often.  Both shades wear just around eight hours on the lower lash line for me, with no fading or smudging.  Whiskey is creamier and more pigmented than Zero, which feels a smidgen dry in comparison, though I would not go so far as to describe it as such.

Illamasqua Wisdom Precision Ink Liquid Eyeliner

Antique Gold May Be the Color of Wisdom

Illamasqua Wisdom Precision Ink Liquid Eyeliner ($27.50 for 0.06 oz.) is described as an “antiqued gold.” It has a deep olive brown base with antique gold and copper micro-shimmer. When it’s applied and seen from a distance, it does resemble antique gold more than it seems when you first swatch it. Chanel Khaki Dore is much lighter. When applied, MAC Buried Treasure is comparable. Urban Decay Stash is greener. MAC Blackline looks greener. MAC Desires & Devices and Stila Flash are much greener. MAC Defiantly Feline is more coppery.

The Precision Ink formula is supposed to be an “intense, waterproof liquid eyeliner” that’s long-wearing and “dries within seconds.”  If you’re familiar with MAC Superslick Eyeliners, Make Up For Ever Aqua Liners, or Stila Sparkle Liners–this formula is very much like those. There’s no real distinction between them, other than they vary in color range, some are just a wee bit thinner or more watery. But the reality is they perform and wear and feel very much the same across the board. In this instance, that’s a good thing, because they all wear like iron.

Precision Ink does dry down quickly (about 20 seconds) and sets into place; no smudging, budging, fading, or the like happens until I remove it (which was 10 hours with Wisdom). When I use a cleansing oil, it removes easily. I can take a shower or swim with this formula on and not experience any problems. It applies mostly opaque in a single go, though a second go-through might be necessary for a really crisp line.

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “black plum and golden pearl.” It’s a blackened purple with flecks of gold sparkle. When it’s sheered out, it tends to look grayer and almost brown-ish with only a hint of purple. MAC Ash Violet is much lighter and more of a real purple hue. Make Up For Ever #6L is lighter, more red-toned, no gold shimmer. MAC Added Goodness is similar–perhaps a little browner.

This shade is new for fall but has been added to the permanent range, so there’s no rush to grab it before it sells out. Bobbi Brown’s Gel Eyeliner formula is supposed to be long-wearing, water-resistant, and crease- and smudge-proof. There’s a reason why this formula is a cult favorite, and that’s simply because it’s good–it wears for hours and hours and doesn’t move until you remove it. It sets fairly quickly; fast enough that you don’t feel like you’re waiting for it to set in place. It’s housed in a small glass jar with a black screw-top lid. I’ve had some for years, and I haven’t encountered any that have dried out over time.

I will note that nearly all variations with shimmer in them are not quite as top notch as the cream-based ones. They’re still really good, high-quality eyeliners, though. The slight difference is the pigmentation is typically not as rich. Here, with Twilight Night, it’s nicely pigmented but doesn’t apply fully opaque in a single stroke (I’d say you get to about 90 to 95% as you pull your brush across the lash line). The shimmer doesn’t travel, though. When I tested the wear, it managed to stay intact without fading or smudging for a full eight hours.

MAC Rich Ground Fluidline

MAC Rich Ground Fluidline

A Perfect Bronze for Fall

MAC Rich Ground Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “reddened coco with frost.” It’s a subtly red-toned bronzy brown with a soft sheen. Make Up For Ever #14 is darker, redder. Make Up For Ever #12 is more copper in color. Urban Decay Lucky is rather similar, perhaps a smidgen more copper.

I’m so glad this is part of the permanent range, because it’s a lovely shade of coppery brown. The red undertones are downplayed, so it won’t emphasize any redness in the eye, which can sometimes make eyes look tired. Instead, this has just enough sheen to brighten with enough lightness to be an alternative to both black and brown.  The pigmentation was excellent–I was able to get a fully opaque line of color in one stroke with the 263 angled brush.  It wore for an impressive ten hours when I tested its long-wearing claim yesterday!

MAC Local Wares Fluidline

MAC Local Wares Fluidline
MAC Local Wares Fluidline

Not Quite Black, Not Quite Brown Eyeliner

MAC Local Wares Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty olive with multidimensional pearl.” It’s a muted dark brown with a gray tinge and subtle gold sparkle. The sparkle isn’t really noticeable once it is applied. It reminded me of CoverGirl Brown, without the shimmer. This collection seems to lean on the warmer side, but this eyeliner reads cooler on me–it actually looks almost gray when I tried it out.

Fluidline is a gel eyeliner that’s supposed to be long-wearing and smudge-proof. It comes inside a clear glass jar with a black screw-top lid. Local Wares has a creamy, pliable texture that glides on and goes on mostly opaque (I used MAC’s 263 brush to apply to my lower lash line), though I did need to go back to get a fully opaque line.  There was no skipping or dragging, because it has a delightfully creamy consistency.  It wore for eight hours without smudging, migrating, or fading when I tested it yesterday.

This collection also includes Dark Diversion, which I’ve reviewed previously, and Rich Ground, which I did buy as well since I can’t remember reviewing it before–though Rich Ground is part of the permanent range.
