Urban Decay Black Market 24-7 Glide-On Pencil Set
Urban Decay Black Market 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set

Urban Decay Black Market 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($36.00 for 6 x 0.03 oz.) includes six eyeliners, five of them new and exclusive shades, with one that’s part of the permanent range. The pencils are 25% smaller than full-sized (0.03 oz. vs. 0.04 oz.), so the total value of the set is $85.50. This set is an easy way to try out Urban Decay’s eyeliner formula, if you haven’t previously, as for the price of less than two full-sized eyeliners, you can get six. And for many of us, we have far more eyeliners than eyes, so getting more colors in a slightly smaller size is really not an issue. ;) Now, the only bummer is if you fall in love with one of the new shades, you won’t find it in the permanent range. (But Urban Decay does add previously exclusive shades into their permanent range from time to time, so maybe you’ll get lucky.) It’s available now at ULTA, but it officially launches tomorrow and is part of Urban Decay’s holiday collection!

Overall, the set includes six shades that all wore well on me (between eight and nine hours of good wear, then less stellar wear–such as thinner/faded but no issues with the eyeliners migrating or smudging). Some of the shades lacked really rich, intense pigmentation in one layer, so you will need to build the color up when applying, as most are quite buildable in two to three passes across the lash line.

West is described as “dark brown pearl.” It’s a medium-dark brown with a golden satin sheen and warm, slightly yellow-y undertones. It had nice color payoff in a single pass, and the color was fully opaque in one and a half passes across the lash line. It wore well for just over eight hours, and I saw some slight fading of the color after nine and a half hours. This shade is new and exclusive. Kat Von D Immortal Love is much darker. Urban Decay Whiskey is matte and more red-toned. Urban Decay Hustle is lighter, warmer. MAC Photogravure is darker. MAC Lord It Up is more sparkly. See comparison swatches.

Desperation is described as “deep taupe-gray matte.” It’s a medium-dark, gray-leaning taupe with soft brown undertones and a matte finish. This is part of the permanent range. It has decent color payoff in one pass, and it is buildable to more opaque color on the lash line. It lasted well for a full eight hours, and then it started to show signs of fading after nine hours–just a thinning of the color but no smudging or migrating. Laura Mercier Slate seems warmer. Urban Decay Stray Dog is lighter, shimmery. bareMinerals 11PM is darker. See comparison swatches.

Black Market is described as “charcoal black satin.” It’s a deep, gray-ish black with very, very subtle green/teal pearl. It had decent pigmentation in a single stroke and was buildable to opaque color on the lash line. It lasted eight hours well, and then after nine hours, I saw some thinning of the eyeliner. This shade is new and exclusive. MAC Black Swan is more glittery. bareMinerals Midnight is warmer. bareMinerals 11PM is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Riot is described as “smoky gray matte with violet and fuchsia micro-sparkle.” It’s a dark purple with subtle warm undertones and flecks of violet, purple, silver shimmer. It had sheerer color payoff when I applied a single layer, but it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. It lasted eight hours well on my lash line, but it was noticeably thinner after nine hours of wear. This shade is new and exclusive. Urban Decay Empire is similar–slightly brighter. Urban Decay Delinquent is warmer, darker. MAC Permaplum is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Apathy is described as “metallic olive green shimmer.” It’s a dark, forest green with olive and subtle brown undertones–while it is olive in tone, it is almost cool-toned because of the emerald green shimmer. It had weak color payoff in a single stroke, but it was more buildable with a few layers; on the lash line, it took three to four passes for mostly opaque color. It wore well for almost nine hours with some light fading (but no smudging/migrating) after ten hours. This shade is new and exclusive. MAC Devotion is similar, slightly darker. NARS Rue de Rivoli is lighter. Urban Decay Mildew is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

Ink is described as “deep navy blue satin.” It’s a rich, navy blue with cool undertones and a subtle, pearly sheen. It had great color payoff in one pass, and it was buildable as well (if you desired). It wore well for eight and a half hours, and it started to thin after nine and a half hours. This shade is new and exclusive. Urban Decay Sabbath is less shimmery, darker. NARS Rue Saint-Honore is brighter. MAC Blue Stripe is more muted. MAC Petrol Blue is more sparkly. See comparison swatches.

    I love the colours of UD’s glide on pencils, but I can never get them to sharpen to a point. They’re also so soft, I get a lot of product waste left in my sharpener from them. The non-sharp point is enough for me to say they aren’t worth the price, gorgeous colours or no.

    • Have you tried putting them in the freezer for ten minutes before sharping them? It makes them a bit harder and get you more of a point! :)

  2. Thank you for reviewing this! I saw it in the Ulta ad the other day & have wanted to see swatches, so I could decide whether to buy it, so thanks! Based on Ink alone, I need this!

  3. Jennifer

    Thank you so much!! I too, just saw these at Ulta but gave pause as wanted to see swatches and comparisons. I just purchased the new Anastasia covet liner set too so don’t really need more eyeliners but LOVE these shades and the fact there is some color variety without being too “much”. Can’t wait to purchase and test out the green – Stash is one of my all time favorites and Apathy look like it will be a nice addition to my collection as more green and vibrant.

  4. I am tempted by this but really only want it for Black Market and Ink. I already have Desperation in my collection. Would love to see Riot, the purple, on because the single pass doesn’t look very pigmented and I’m not a fan of grinding eyeliner into my lids to get payoff.

    “And for many of us, we have far more eyeliners than eyes”

    Hahahahaha! Brilliant. I like West and Apathy but I don’t see myself getting any use out of the other colours.

  6. I love Urban Decay and these colors are so pretty! Great post(:

  7. artemis

    Cool, especially the last one <3

  8. Apathy is a gorgeous shade! I have a couple of these kits from past years, but I tend to really use the name liners over & over, while ignoring most of the shades I own.

  9. Not that I need anymore liners by anyone’s standards, but this is actually a pretty decent deal!

  10. Emily

    Christine do you know if there are going to be any eyeshadow palettes released for Holiday, like the Vice Palette?

  11. I only really like Ink an Riot, Apathy is nice too. I was more impressed by the Electric set last year but hopefully we’ll see other pencil sets again!

  12. Katherine

    Will this be sold at Sephora?

  13. BeckBeck

    Whyyyyyy must UD do this to me?? I have this terrible “collect them all” problem with their liners. :P

  14. Meagan

    A lot of these look like liners UD already has. West is similar to Corrupt, Black Market to Smoke, Riot to Empire, Apathy to Mildew and Ink to Binge.

  15. Carrie

    The more I look at Desperation, the more I like it! I may just add that one to my stash instead. I have close enough colors for the others :)

  16. zainab

    I want this, even though there’s no way I need it. I hope they release a new eyeshadow palette (which I also don’t need).

  17. Mel

    I really hope they send you Ocho Loco 2 and Vice 2 to review!

  18. Ok I genuinely love all of these and could see myself using ALL of them lol. Too bad it’s really difficult to get Urban Decay in Australia…!!

  19. AngieButterfly

    Glad this set is so basic and not a must have. I have too much eyeliner already. Lol.

  20. Oh. My. God. I need these in my life! I’m totally in love with Black Market. At the beginning of this post I leaned more towards West and Desperation, but at the end of the post Black Market is the one that I was most intrigued by. But I need them all. ;)

  21. Aubri

    I noticed these at Ulta last week and impulse bought. Apathy is my favourite!

  22. Those are really pretty but I really don’t need anymore pencil eyeliners. I’m always too lazy to sharpen them

  23. Nat

    I am so much more drawn to this eye liner collection that Ocho Loco 2. I must buy! Can’t resist :)

  24. Amanda

    Officially lemming Apathy. Crap.
