L’Oreal HIP High Intensity Pigments Chrome Eyeliner from bottom to top: Violet Volt, Black Shock, Silver Lightning, Gold Charge
Hey there, my discount lovin’ beauties. How do you feel about Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils?
I’m a fan. I think they’re fabulously buttery and love how long they wear.
I adore how long they last. They take about a minute to dry but then stay put for most of the day vibrant, rich color, especially when worn along my lashlines.
Unfortch, the waterlines are a different story, where all four pencil colors made my eyes teary, and their colors began to fade rather quickly (within a few minutes).
Even so, I like ’em for the price, especially if you don’t wear eyeliner along the waterline.
Swatches from left to right: Violet Volt, Black Shock, Silver Lightning, Gold Charge
About the colors…
- Violet Volt: My brown eyes pop when I wear this deep blackish purple. It should sing on green or hazel eyes.
- Black Shock: A black pencil that at first glance doesn’t appear to shimmer but upon closer inspection has tiny silver flecks that give the shade a subtle but noticeable silver kick.
- Silver Lightning: A cool, silvery white that applies with mad shimmer. Try it on the inner corners to perk up tired eyes.
- Gold Charge: The shimmery bronze-gold sister of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Eldorado.
Chrome’s an expensive drugstore eyeliner (for $10), but I think it holds up well to $17 ones from Urban Decay.
If you’re on a strict makeup budget, scour stores like Rite Aid and Walgreens and watch for Saturday/Sunday coupons. Thankfully, L’Oreal goes on sale A LOT. I’ll let you know when I spot a good deal.
I forgive these for failing on the waterline because of their pigmentation, wear time and how easy they are to apply. Great deals for $10, so thank you, L’Oreal. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
