Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Abyss

I love this shade! I just wish the liner performed just a tiny bit better. This is a near-metallic finish, so there's a tendency to skip just a bit. The application is cleaner than UD's matte pencils, and not as scanty as the full-on metallic eyeliner shades, but…it doesn't go on as evenly as I'd love. It does stay in place once it's applied and cured, so that's a plus.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

I have found that while it's buildable, the additional layers don't always stay put as well throughout the whole day. I've gotten around this by going more slowly when applying, or applying by using repeated shorter strokes. Then I only need one layer - I may have to do a little bit of cleanup, or I may not have the best tightline application possible, but I don't have gaps in the coverage.
