Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Goldmine

Urban Decay does not have the best track record ever when it comes to gold eyeliner pencils. (I think it might be gold eyeliner pencils in general, kind of how most yellow nail polish is streaky; because gold eyeliner pencils from other vendors are also kind of fucky.) Eldorado had problems with less-than-smooth application; Goldmine is a softer yellow, but it applies kind of…semisheer? The sparkle is rather sparse, so if you are not a fan of glitter liners, this one would not cause you any problems. Then again, this color is so very very soft…it might not give you any color, either.

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.

For all its problems with patchy application, if you're looking for a yellow liner, go with Sephora's Banana Split, from their Contour Liner Pencil line. Sure it's a bright yellow rather than a gold; and it does have the tendency to skip a bit - but you actually get color out of that one.
