Urban Decay Corrupt 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Urban Decay Corrupt 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) now include these four shades in the permanent range: Corrupt (dark metallic reddish brown shimmer with silver micro-sparkle), Whiskey (rich brown matte), Roach (deep copper brown shimmer), Smog (copper shimmer), and Scorch (bronze shimmer with silver micro-sparkle). Out of these five Roach and Scorch are entirely new, while the other shades have been released in exclusive sets/kits.

Corrupt is a dark brown with a subtle cool undertone and multi-colored sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single pass, and then it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. Urban Decay Bourbon is warmer, more brown, whereas Corrupt has a slightly blackened/gray coloring. CoverGirl Brown is more matte, slightly darker, while CoverGirl Brown is similar in color but matte in finish.

Whiskey is a medium-dark, slightly warm-toned brown with a matte finish. The color payoff was quite nice in a single stroke, and it’s very easy to apply it with full opacity. MAC Brownborder is similar. Chanel Brun-Teak is slightly less warm-toned. MAC Lord It Up compares best in terms of color with this shade but has a sparkly finish.

Roach is a warm-toned, bronze-shimmered, medium-dark brown with copper and gold shimmer. It had so-so pigmentation in one stroke, but it built up to opaque color when done a second time. Urban Decay Lucky is brighter, more metallic, and more copper-colored (less brown). Tokidoki Savana is slightly more muted.

Smog is a medium-dark brown with subtle warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had decent color in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. Urban Decay Lucky is darker and more copper-hued.

Scorch is a warm-toned, bronze-brown with a pearly sheen. It had decent payoff in one pass, and it built up to opaque color coverage when I went back-and-forth. Urban Decay Baked is a bit darker but slightly brighter/more metallic. Make Up For Ever #10L is more golden.

Whiskey was the top-performing shade from the five featured in this post; it is nicely pigmented whether you use one stroke or go back-and-forth over it. Smog was the least impressive, as it didn’t quite build to full color coverage, even when layered, but it gets close. The other three had decent to good color in a single pass but were more buildable to opacity. The consistency was slightly waxy and creamy, so the color would glide across the skin without tugging, pulling, or skipping. I typically get eight to ten hours of wear with little to no fading, and I haven’t had trouble with smudging or migration with the formula previously. I will be testing the newer shades over the next few weeks, so if I notice any differences, I will be sure to update this post to reflect them!

Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Look #2

We had our celebratory dinner on Saturday, and I had to wear Chanel Dragon–my go-to for special occasions–and decided to pair it with the neutral shades from the Rollergirl palette, due out in late April.  I really cannot express how absolutely in love I am with Le Metier de Beaute Echo… ah, it is just glowy goodness to the fullest extent.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Greed as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply Verve eyeshadow to the lower lid with the 239.  Next, apply Suspect eyeshadow above the crease and into the outer corner with the 222.  Use Trench eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone and diffuse the crease color with the 217.  Apply Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Echo blush on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with the 116.  Lightly apply Amber Diamond on the highest planes of the cheeks with the 165.

For lips, apply Dragon for a complementing lip.

Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Look

LOVE! this palette.  The three neutrals look amazing together, but due to popular request, I had to incorporate Woodstock somehow! :)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Greed as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply Verve eyeshadow to the inner third of the eye with the 239.  Next, apply Suspect eyeshadow to the middle third of the eye, going above the crease.  Apply Darkhorse eyeshadow just above the crease and into the outer corner with the 222.  With the edge of the 239, apply Woodstock eyeshadow to the outer two-thirds of the crease.  Use Trench eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone and diffuse the crease color with the 217.  Apply Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Giggly blush on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with fingers.

For lips, apply Cherry Blossom for a complementing lip.

The Way It was MEANT to Be:  So Neutral!

Okay, so I’m pretty the Urban Decay Naked Palette was designed with neutral looks in mind, not so much the ultra smoky look I did yesterday.  So this neutral look follows that smokier look up as a quick, work-safe alternative made easy by that palette.

Happy weekend everyone!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Using the 239, apply Naked eyeshadow into the crease with the 226 and feather above the natural crease until it fades.  Next, apply Virgin eyeshadow all over the lower lid with the 239.  Define the crease with Darkhorse eyeshadow using the 219, and then lightly blend Naked eyeshadow softly over it with the 226.  Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Plum Attraction blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Emotive lipstick first, and then layer Perversion lip junkie for a complementing lip.
