Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) now include these four shades in the permanent range: Smoke (deepest grey matte), Empire (dark eggplant matte), Delinquent (dark purple shimmer with light purple micro-sparkle), Vice (pearly red eggplant shimmer), Psychedelic Sister (bright purple cream), Ether (pale smoky gray shimmer with violet and fuchsia micro-sparkle) and Asphyxia (vibrant pink/purple duotone with tonal and blue micro-sparkle). Out of these seven, Smoke, Vice, and Ether are entirely new, while the other shades have been released in exclusive sets/kits.

Smoke is a brown-based, dark gray with a mostly matte finish. This one looked very faded and more brown than gray when applied in one stroke. I had some trouble building up the color, though–it didn’t want to apply evenly.

Empire is a red-toned violet purple with a pearly sheen. When applied in one pass, it looks more eggplant-y with stronger red tones, but when layered, it builds up and looks like a violet purple. It could be slightly creamier. MAC Rich Purple is more matte, less red-toned. MAC Permaplum is darker, less violet.

Delinquent has a blackened brown base with light and dark purple sparkle that shimmers on top. It does best when layered, as in a single stroke, it looks a bit patchy. MAC Designer Purple is much brighter and lighter. I thought there was another purple Pearlglide, but I could not recall it.

Vice is a medium-dark plummy purple with multi-colored sparkle/shimmer. It had so-so color in a single stroke, and it was buildable to about semi-opaque color coverage. MAC Designer Purple is less red-toned.

Psychedelic Sister is a lightly red-toned violet purple with a pearly sheen. It didn’t have good payoff in one pass, but it was more buildable. Urban Decay Ransom is bluer-based.

Ether has a gray-ish brown base with an assortment of shimmer and micro-glitter–it’s a cool-toned purple and coppery gold that seems to dominate. It was a very interesting and complex shade but had incredibly weak pigmentation, even when I attempted to layer it. I could not think of a dupe for it in pencil form, but Stila Starry was somewhat similar (liquid).

Asphyxia is a fuchsia pink with iridescent violet and fuchsia shimmer. It has sheerer color payoff, and it’s not a very buildable shade. I find it too waxy so while it doesn’t pull or tug, it is hard to itensify the color. I don’t think I have anything that is comparable to this in eyeliner form (but there are several eyeshadows that are similar).

Some excellent reading: Gray Eyeliner Comparisons, Purple Eyeliner Comparisons, Pink Eyeliner Comparisons

I was, sadly, disappointed by a few shades featured here.  Smoke was rather faded in appearance and wasn’t buildable, while Ether and Asphyxia were particularly weak in color payoff.  The other four shades (Empire, Delinquent, Vice, and Psychedelic Sister) didn’t have rich payoff in one stroke–so-so and slightly better but not great.  Psychedelic Sister was the best out of the seven, as it had decent pigmentation in a single pass and was buildable.  I usually get between eight and ten hours of wear with Urban Decay’s formula with no migration or smudging and little to no fading.  I will be testing the newer shades over the next few weeks and will amend this review if any of them wear differently.

I appreciate the mattes they put in this collection but i am finding that UD just has a love affair with chunky glitter that they just wont let go of…. Urban Decay it is time to let gooooooo….

Gigie Avatar

I would agree with you if it wasn’t for the fact that they’re a business and there’ll always be an 18-25 y/o market for them to sell that stuff to. I’ve decided that as I grow up I’ll simply move on to MUFE and Nars.

Its part of what urban decay does! Their moto is beauty with an edge whats edgy about matte? Plus Gigie is right just be cause you dont like the glittery shades doesnt mean they dont sell. Im in my mid twenties and I’m never giving up my glittery eyeliners it is what makes me stand out and makes me happy.

I know you think Ether has poor color pay off, but it is just so gorgeous! One of my favorite looks is Bobbi Brown Fawn (discontinued) with UD Stray Dog liner. The two colors are really similar so the very minimal change in depth makes for an awesome looking eye look. I feel that ether could provide this minimal change from shadow to liner for many of my other favorite eyeshadows.

PS. I’m so frustrated they only made 50 vault palettes. I was halfway through checking out and it told me they were sold out. GRRRR!

I love chunky glitter, lots of brands don’t have it. It would b nice to see *one* brand keep doing the unapologetic sparkly stuff with good quality.

Is the swatch of Ether one pass? I don’t like a heavy eyeliner since I usually wear it alone and I’m loving the glitter…..

Christine: in looking for dupes for Delinquent, I believe the purple MAC Pearlglide you are thinking of is Rave. The color is similar, but Rave is smoother and a bit richer. I don’t wear it much anymore, but when I used to do lots of sparkly, smoky eye looks, Rave paired with Young Punk was my go-to. 🙂

I don’t know if this is a real stupid question but.. can you put these eye pencils with the real chunky glitter on your waterline?? or does anyone think that wouldn’t be such a good idea? i am interested because i usually only wear eyeliner on my eyelid but i kind of want to put a couple of these glitter shades on my bottom waterline… hmm…

I got Asphyxia in the 15th Anniversary set… it actually works quite well for me, and I’ve had good experiences building up the colour.

Darn it…I KNEW I should’ve picked up 1999 a long time ago! I didn’t know it was going to be discontinued :/ It’s a shame that the purple shades aren’t as good quality-wise as some of the others but I guess that’s the way it usually goes with purple :/

Gigie Avatar

Purple always seem to be such a difficult color to get right. Especially in liners and creams shadows. I wonder why that is? Must be something about the red+blue pigment combo.

Lydia (Sparkle With Me) Avatar

I’ve noticed that too. In MUFE’s 92, while it is a beautiful color, the pigment is so patchy and hard to build up. Even with Sugarpill’s Poison Plum I can still sense that it’s more difficult to pack on then other colors. I find that bright blues are easiest to do well and pigmented though!
