The smokin’ hot Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Scorch

Dear UD Scorch,

‘Sup, boo? I’ve been missing you. We haven’t talked in a while (six months, give or take, but who’s counting?).


I just wanted to holla and ask, “How are you?” How’s my smokin’-hot, shimmery bronze liner love? Still the picture of pure perfection in a pencil?

Remember how we always loved to play in spring and summer? Whenever I’d bust out my beach bag and slip on my booty shorts (might as well work it while you can, right?), you were always right there for me, ready to help with the bronze and gold eye makeup looks I was wearing.

I wonder, are you the same way…?

I bet you are. 🙂 I bet you’d like me to swipe you along my lash lines, wouldn’t ‘cha? Just us, from the break of dawn till late at night, no fading, no smudging — nothing to break our bond.

Urban Decay Scorch Swatch

Heart ya, Scorch!

I’ve been thinking about you again. A lot. And all of the things I want to do with you…like wearing you as a base for shimmery bronze eyeshadows.

Remember that time I layered you with UD’s Half Baked on top? That was smokin’ hot.

Oh! — or that time I wore you with MAC Woodwinked? Hotter than a five-alarm fire.

The 411 on Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Scorch

What is it? A silky soft $20 long-wearing shimmery bronze pencil liner with silver micro-glitter. Available now at Urban Decay counters and urbandecay.com.

Who might lurve it? Anyone who likes wearing warm bronze and gold shades on their eyes.

When’s a good time to wear it? How ’bout now? Or any time of year, but I think it comes into its own in spring and summer because it looks faboo with a tan.

What else? It’s a great liner alternative to basic brown and black.

How do you rock it? You can wear it as a straight-up eyeliner or as a base for powder shadows. It goes well with coral or hot pink cheeks and lips.

Swatch out! Or you’ll get Scorched… (Urban Decay Scorch on my NC42 skin)

I’ve never dated another pencil liner like you. I, uh, heard through the makeup grapevine that you got into a fight with Costa Riche? Is that true?? I hope it wasn’t about me, but if it was, shoo’ — let ’em trip. What we got is special. 🙂

Sending you R. Kelly slow jams, always,


The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.

Stuck in Love

I Netflix’d it. That’s the name of it — a movie called Stuck in Love. I watched it a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, but I keep forgetting to tell you.

It’s about a father who’s a novelist (played by Greg Kinnear), his family and how he tries to move on with his life after his wife leaves him for another man. Also starring Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell. Funny, sad and sweet, all at the same time. And I feel like the characters are believable, too.


A good one to fire up on ye olde telly if you find yourself chilling on the couch one afternoon with a big bowl of popcorn (which is what I frequently do). If you end up watching it, let me know what you think.

So, how was Tuesday? Good, I hope.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Aww, I want this one! I have a small but growing collection of UD’s 24/7 liners – they’re my go-to! I think this bronze would look lovely with my blue eyes, too…

    Hilarious article and great pencil! How does this compare to Mac Powersurge?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bella,

      Thank you! 🙂 I’m a MAC Powersurge fan too. Scorch is slightly more warm and has a stronger orangey undertone. It also has tiny silver flecks of glitter.

  11. Erin says:

    I want to get something like this but I’m afraid it might be too warm for me!

  12. Erin says:

    Ooops, didn’t finish my comment! It looks so neutral on you and I think it would really go with my green eyes!

  13. Looks like a great color for the summer! I saw the movie a while back and liked it! Like you said, funny, sweet yet a bit sad.

    Gorgeous! And I’m pretty sure I don’t own this eyeliner. It’s getting added to my UD list.

    I purchased scorch not too long ago because sephora was giving away free UD nail polish with any UD purchase so of course I had to buy something 🙂 I have a lot of UD liners but somehow overlooked this one so I added it to my arsenal for my free polish. I really like it for day wear because it’s not harsh yet it’s sassy enough to add more for some pop during the night. Really happy I am a sucker for freebies or else I may have totally missed this shade!

  20. Deanna says:

    That eye liner is gorgeous! I also watched Stuck in Love recently, and I really enjoyed it! Being a writer myself, it was fun seeing a movie about a family of writers. It inspired me to start journaling again.

  21. Jenn says:

    I used this on my water line today! I couldn’t even find my sharpener but I had pulled it yesterday and I just about gave myself an eye splinter but it worked out. Gorgeous!
