Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) now include these four shades in the permanent range: Goldmine (gold shimmer with gold micro-sparkle), Freak (bright green shimmer), Junkie (metallic team shimmer with gold micro-sparkle), Deep End (bright metallic peacock shimmer), and LSD (navy shimmer with bright turquoise micro-sparkle). Out of these five, Goldmine and Freak are entirely new, while the other shades have been released in exclusive sets/kits.
Goldmine is a medium gold with moderate orange undertones and a soft sheen and light sprinkling of darker gold sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single pass and layered to mostly opaque color. Make Up For Ever #9L is slightly lighter. Urban Decay Eldorado is darker, more orange-toned. Urban Decay Honey is much darker, more molten, and browner. It’s closer to Eldorado than it is to Honey, but those who love both will easily see the difference.
Freak is a light-medium green with a subtle golden sheen and an almost cool-toned base color. It had so-so color in a single pass, and it didn’t quite build up to fully opaque color. Urban Decay Graffiti is much darker and cooler-toned. I couldn’t think of a shade that was really similar to this.
Junkie is a bluish-teal with teal and gold sparkle. It has so-so pigmentation in a single stroke, but it is more buildable. MAC Undercurrent is darker, more green-based. MAC Blue Noon is brighter.
Goldmine and Freak were the first two shades I tested for wear after swatching them; I wore one on each eye and on the lower lash line. Both shades lasted for eight hours well without smudging though there was slight fading. I typically get between eight and ten hours of wear with Urban Decay’s eyeliners with little to no fading and definitely no smudging/migration. They have a slightly creamy, slightly waxy consistency that enables easy glide across the lid and lash line (no tugging or pulling) but usually requires two or three passes of the liner to achieve full color coverage.
Of these, Deep End was my favorite because it had the best pigmentation and smoothest texture. LSD has a very interesting look on the eye, because of how sparkly it is. I wish Freak popped more; it's slightly brightening but kind of pale.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.

Behind-the-Series: It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison. Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more. When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner. If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link. Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description. You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.
