Urban Decay Liquid Eyeliner Review | 24 Hour Wear, Smudge Proof & Quick Drying

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

Urban Decay Liquid EyelinerUrban Decay Liquid Liner Eyeliner is designed to last all day and night without smudging. It comes in 14 different shades from black, a shimmering neutral or a sparkling bright color.

The bottle itself has been designed for ease of use due to the shape of the lid, it should fit in your hand nicely. The formula should dry quickly for less risk of smudging and should have a subtle shine.

I personally love the effect of a liquid eyeliner, but applying it isn't always easy I know, but practice makes perfect. When perfected it looks gorgeous!

This liner does sound like a good buy if you are looking for that shiny and glossy style, which is popular for a night town with a bit of glamor. Urban Decay is a well known brand among younger circles, although its products are sometimes a little over priced.

Users Conclusions


  • Glossy finish
  • Worth the price
  • Great definition
  • Easy to use
  • Quick drying
  • Doesn't smudge


  • Brush is a little big for smaller eyes
  • Not good for everyday wear as too shiny

To get a more defined line use the very tip of the brush, or if you like a thicker line lay the brush flat. It will look better if you can make the line in one sweep, it takes a steady hand and practice but its worth it for gorgeous eyes.

To Sum Up

Urban Decay has pulled in good reviews for this liquid eyeliner with most users impressed with the precision and ease of use. However, a few ladies found the brush a little big for small eyes.

If you can, try and test it before you buy. This eyeliner is quite pricey at $18 considering some brands cost as little as $10 and can be just as good.

The pencil comes in a wide range of colors, so hopefully there will be a suitable shade to match any skin tone and personality.

Ladies from Amazon had mixed comments about Aqua Eyes. Some think its a brilliant formula that stays put all day with no smudging. They also like that its waterproof.

Other users seemed to have the opposite effect with this pencil. They found that it ran after a few hours giving them dark circles under the eyes. Some ladies found it didn't go on smoothly and tugged on their skin.

I don't know about you but I'm in 2 minds about trying it and it doesn't help that it is a little over priced too!

Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner Review | Long Lasting Self Sharpening Easy To Use Pencil

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

Avon GlimmerstickAvon Glimmersticks Eye Liner is designed to define the eyes while also being easy to apply. Avon says it made this eye liner for easy use so it has a easy glide on color with long wear, self sharpening and its retractable.

Glimmersticks also come in a wide range of colors. I have a black one and it is really black not a greyish black like some brands. Unfortunately this eye liner isn't waterproof though, so you might want to look at other reviews if you need a waterproof one.

Avon guru's on think Glimmersticks eye liner is good as it lasts all day, goes on so smooth without tugging skin and the price is great.

Some other ladies weren't as impressed as they found it to smudge and not last very long.



Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner costs $2.99 as its on sale now, but normally costs $6. Which is still a great deal at full price and is cheaper than most brands.
