I’m a big fan of Perversion.
I like to get it on…my water and/or lash lines. I’m always down for that action. Oh, yeah…
I appreciate that Urban Decay included a full-size Perversion Glide-On Eye Pencil in their new $52 Ten 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ’cause really — a girl can never have too many jet-black pencil liners. Still, I think it might’ve been cooler if they’d swapped it out for a new color.
Nine of the 10 long-lasting, smooth pencils in the limited edition kit are minis in new shades, while Perversion, the solitary full-size pencil in the set, has been around the block a few times, if you know what I’m sayin’. 😉
With the minis being new shades, I wonder why UD didn’t go all out with new shades for the entire set, but I digress…
Taupe plays a major role here, so if you like earth tones and grayish browns in matte or shimmery finishes, whee! — you’ll have a great time. I know I did with Smokeout, the satiny blackish taupe, which I’m wearing below.
I’m hoping, and crossing my fingers, toes and eyes, that UD releases a full-size version of Smokeout soon. I see some serious Unsung Hero potential there.
Color junkies, don’t despair about the taupe. The set also includes a nice mix of blues and purple, and even a shot of gold, giving those who aren’t totally Team Taupe room to play.
It’s cool to see UD release so many new colors. I just hope they keep it up! One only needs so many mini Mildews and Whiskeys, ya know?
I’ve also noticed, and I don’t know if it’s because my skin has changed as I’ve “grown up,” but some of these transfer into my creases a little (notice it with Perversion, in particular). I haven’t used any of my other 24/7s in a while, so I’m not sure if it’s something specific to this batch, or if I’d also notice it with the others.
PRICE: $52 for 10 pencils, nine of them minis and one full size (compare this to UD’s regular full-size pencils at $20 each)
AVAILABILITY: Limited edition online exclusive, and available now at urbandecay.com; coming soon to sephora.com, ulta.com, macys.com and beauty.com
