Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Eye Pencils Set

Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Eye Pencils Set

Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Eye Pencils Set ($32.00) includes five travel-sized versions of: Perversion (matte darkest black), Ransom (deep shimmery purple with blue shift), Woodstock (shimmery hot pink), Radium (shimmery bright blue), and Junkie (bright green with gold sparkle).

I’m a long-time fan of the 24/7 Eye Pencils, because they have just enough creaminess for easy gliding across the lash line but not so much that it results in smudging or running. It has a large color range, and they last quite awhile. When I’m doing a look, I often reach for this formula, because it wears all day for me.

  • Perversion is a really deep, dark black with a matte finish. It’s very creamy (more so than the majority of the 24/7 Pencils) but still works well.
  • Ransom is a violet purple with a subtle red undertone and a satiny sheen. The pigmentation is hit or miss; over the years, I’ve had great color from Ransom pencils, but some pencils yield less (the one I received in this set was more of a dud).  The most comparable liner would be Woodstock (the liquid eyeliner).
  • Woodstock is a fuchsia-red pink with a satiny sheen. The pigmentation was decent but not fully opaque in a single pass. It is buildable (see the larger swatch).
  • Radium is a brightened medium blue with a subtle, silvery sheen. It’s nicely pigmented in a single pass.
  • Junkie is a bluish-teal color base with green and gold sparkle. It is similar to MAC Undercurrent — but it seems to have a slightly darker, blue base.

I probably gripe about this each year, but it’s always frustrating as long-time Urban Decay buyer to see these kits, because Urban Decay loves to include a few never-before-seen shades into each kit among shades you might already own.  The Electric Set is the best set to fight against that trend, as Woodstock, Radium, and Junkie are all new and exclusive to the set, and Perversion was only available in the 15th Anniversary set.  I also like how they made one set dominated by bold shades and the other more neutral.  Nevertheless, each shade is 0.03 oz. and a full-sized version is 0.04 oz. and costs $18 a pop–so this kit has $67.50 worth of eyeliner for $32.

Oh, yeah…I’m saving up for this. The only one I could really do without is Ransom, which I already have from the 15th anniversary set, but have never found to be great like other 24/7 eyeliners. It’s patchy and doesn’t build up to full pigmentation evenly for me (same for Asphyxia to a greater extent, and Binge to a lesser extent).

Thank you Christine! I didn’t see it mentioned but are there any dupes for Radium? Even an eye shadow over a base eye liner in black or white would be useful! Thank you! I keep thinking Haight might be a good eye shadow to match it….what do you think?

i think you can if you got a very bright shimmery pink lipstick 😛 plus, people say these last all day so it should be the same for lips, i guess. never tried them

I would love to see Radium and Junkie sold separately. Already have multiples of Perversion and Ransom, and Woodstock looks quite similar to MUFE 13L.

when it comes to these colorful eyeliners i prefer to just use them as a base. ransom is great with another purple eyeshadow thrown on over it. it gives it that extra little “oomph” that the e/s wouldn’t have had on it’s own(i typically do this below the eye, although i imagine they’d be good for working with cut creases as well)

This may sound silly but I’m really interested in colored eyeliners lately (specifically, this set). However, I can’t figure out how I’d wear them! Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t know if I’d necessarily want it to be the star of the look… Maybe just an accent. Any help would be greatly appreciated :]

my favorite way to wear them is with a pretty neutral eye, and line the lower lash line with the pop of color. i do this a lot with a wash of half baked on the the lid, then binge or mildew pencil on the lower lash line. it’s my go to look for work!

I’m disappointed Woodstock looks so patchy, but it’s the same par as Ransom. Because of this, a lot of times I will go over the 24/7 liners with a coordinating eyeshadow using a liner brush, just to fill in any gaps. It seems to work pretty well. I am however in LOVE with Junkie! I may have to stock up on this set just for Perversion and Junkie 🙂

Ah, Ransom, AGAIN??! I already have too many Ransom! I wonder why UD doesn’t put Lust in the set instead? Among all of UD purple/plum/violet liners, Lust is the best!

However, it’s hard to skip this set. I need my Perversion back up and that Junkie, oh gosh, GORGEOUS!!! (it reminds me of UD Siren). I also kinda like Woodstock, but I might pass Ransom & Radium to my sister. I look awful in bright cool blue eyeliner/shadow hence my medium golden-olive skin tone.

oh Junkie ! I love undercurrent by Mac but the whole line of Pearlglide liners cause me irritation 🙁 well thank god UD doesn’t woohoo !! I think UD should expand their 24/7 liners and add our favorite ones perversion, Junkie, whiskey or demolition they look the same right ??!

just wanted to let you know I just got these in both sets at Sephora Inside JCPenney today! I bought the electric set, I live in fort worth Texas 🙂

You can find this set at Nordstrom Rack near you for just $18! In case anyone is still looking to buy this, it is no longer available online. I’ve stocked up on both the electric and the naked sets.
