URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil – Mainline

The color of the outside of this pencil is the color of the actual pencil – Mainline (a medium matte teal). These pencils need to be sharpened as the color gets used, they are not the twist-up kind. Love the staying power of this eyeliner, it truly stays on until you take it off with […]

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – Purple Velvet

The purple of this eye pencil turns out fairly matte, even though the tip of the pencil looks like it might have some sheen. Its lid is clear, which allows you to see the color before opening it. Although the color of this pencil is nice, it does not have good lasting power and rubs […]
