Who Wouldn’t Want to Hit This Jackpot? The Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Kit

NEWPORT BEACH (MBB Newswire) — After a break-in Wednesday at Urban Decay headquarters in Newport Beach, California, unknown individuals made off with a tray of the company’s “special brownies.”

When asked to describe the missing brownies to police, a company spokesperson said they were “uh…chocolate, and stuff.”

——

But seriously (in a matter of speaking), don’t most of UD’s holiday releases include a couple of shout-outs to stoners (ala their Smoke Out Kits)?

Unless I’m overlooking something obvs, Mary Jane’s MIA this time around. Well, there is the kit… 24/7 Jackpot ($39) — heh, I said pot.

Either way, Jackpot brings beautifully rich, blinged-out liners to the holiday makeup table, and if you’re new to Urban Decay, I think you’re in for a treat. :)

These 24/7 pencils are some of the best liners around, with awesome, creamy textures, vibrant colors and all-day wear time.

Jet black Zero has been a crowd fave, but shimmery golden brown Bourbon has been my No. 1 crush.

From left: Gunmetal (the gunmetal gray with silver glitter), Rockstar (the dark eggplant), Binge (the navy blue), Ransom (the bright, iridescent purple), Electric (the bright aquamarine), Mildew (the dark green), Stash (the greenish gold), Whiskey (the dark brown) Eldorado (the gold) and Zero (the inky black)

With Jackpot, an idea similar to last year’s 24/7 Super Stash (except instead of nine miniature Glide-On Eye Pencils, this kit comes with nine minis and a full-size Zero), Urban Decay had value in mind.

It’s important to note, however, that more than half of Jackpot’s colors were already released with last year’s Super Stash – Rockstar, Binge, Ransom, Stash, Eldorado and Zero. That may not be welcome news to ladies who jumped at Super Stash, but for what it’s worth, these are colors that most gals should be able to wear often.

Have a look at these swatches, and please let me know what ya think!

Butterfingers, take heed. I’ve heard from not-so-nimble-fingered friends that these minis can be difficult to manipulate and hold. If that ends up being the case for you, you could always break up the set, and give the pencils away to friends and family, and they make cute little stocking stuffers, too. :) Just a thought…

Ultimately, I like this set a lot. It’s a pretty affordable way to stock up on a few 24/7 faves and may present an opportunity to discover some new colors, too, like the shimmery forest green Mildew (LOVE!). Available now at Ulta stores and online at urbandecay.com. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+

    Hi Karen.
    I personally have quite a few mini sized UD liners and original sized and I don’t see any difference in quality. But some people say that mini sized are worse. Have you (or anyone else, girls) noticed any difference?

    Haha, you are so funny. I love the swatches! I cant decide if I need this set or if I should just go get a full sized Ransom because that is the most beautiful color ever.

  3. I LOVE the 24/7 pencils! Although I got the similar kit last holiday season, I am still tempted by this set.

  5. Trisha says:

    Yep, I totally want it. Want it like crazy! All of the colors look great in swatch form (except for maybe Gunmetal). I really like that gold color. Ugh, I want it.

    I totally heart your reviews Miss Karen! Keep up the awesome work! :]

    • Karen says:

      Hi Grrracielou,

      You could save Electric for Friday nights out. :)

      What kind of job do you do? Do you like it?

      • grrracielou says:

        I work in a legal office in downtown l.a
        (* can I get a whoop whoop?! *) lol! and you are totally right! I’m a total and complete sucker for zero though its my main squeeze when it comes to eyeliners ;]
        And I totally love my job even though I do have to say my favorite part of it is that on my down time I can totally catch up on your blog! I loves it! Tabs is such a d to the i to the v to the ayyyyyyy! lol!

  7. Sarah B. says:

    I would wear EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. I am salivating. Positively drooling. I need a mop. Tarnation! CURSE MY MEAGER COLLEGE STUDENT FINANCES!

    …Oh, and this my first time posting on your amazing blog, so I figured I should say hello, so here it goes: Hello! :-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sarah B.,

      LOL, okay… I love that you used “tarnation” in a sentence.

      Nice to meet you! What year are you in school? What are you studying?

      • Sarah B. says:

        I’m a sophomore– I’m currently an English major, but I’m hoping to transfer to a different school so I can major in a more competitive Art History or Physical Anthropology program. But I have to get in first, so we’ll see how that goes! :-)

  8. Anna says:

    I love all of those colors, but if I had to choose it would have to be binge, eldorado, stash, ransom, mildew and electric :)
    amazing colors :)

    hugs

  10. Erika says:

  11. I would absolutely love this if they replaced Eldorado with Honey. it’s still a nice set of colors though

    you are too cute. i love the rainbow signage.

    and a green colored “stash” is def stoner related to me ;-)

    i love 24/7 liners but i already have some of these in full size
    but i do love minis!

  15. Aparnaa says:

    So basically what you’re telling me is I have to just line my eyes at all hours of the day and night so I can justify getting this for myself come winter. ROGER!

  16. Eva Bethel says:

    I LOVEEEEE THESE! I suggested (aka TOLD) my hubby that the Jackpot set would make an awesome birthday present for me. Of course he didn’t want to go to my “girly” store to get them, so I did :o) Got a freebie sample of de-slick in a tube also. I HAVE to have the rest of the 24/7 liners! They are so creamy & they last ALL day!

  17. Shanda says:

    See, I bought this, and I’m not sure about the value. The pencils are so small, I’m wondering if it would be better to just buy the colors I love in the big size. I’m also not seeing the lasting power that ppl see. They still smudged on me at the end of the day.

    Anyway, love the blog!

  18. bisbee says:

    Some of my favorites! I haven’t noticed a difference between the regular and minis – have both!

    Just got Rockstar but haven’t gotten into wearing it too much – it looks great and I’ll have to reach for it more often! Bourbon is one of my faves – I had to get backups of that and Stash, another favorite! I also have been using Gunmetal a lot….Whiskey is pretty too – it might have to join the others soon!

  19. Tiffy says:

    Ahh! I missed the holiday set of 24/7 last year, not going to happen again. Going to head over to Sephora this weekend. Is there any other eyeliners that stay well on oily skin and/or the water line?

    :) Thanks for posting this.

  20. Scientific Housewife says:

    I want so bad!

  21. Ru says:

    I’ve been secretly wishing for a set (because I already own Mildew and Covet), but now I have to decide between this and BOS III! I’m broke just lusting after this stuff!!

  22. CinCin says:

    im drooling over hear …the color pay on the pixs are beautiful ..I must have them :)

  23. CinCin says:

    Apparently I can’t spell either …here*

  24. Kim says:

    Wow, those are some beautiful colors. The ones that I like the most would also be the toughest to wear (I’m talking to you, Electric!). I really like the idea of the minis, though; I’d feel less guilty chucking a small size if it didn’t work out. :)

  25. Celina says:

    I want this set so bad!

  26. Advah says:

    Electric, Stash and Gunmetal. I want those very badly!

  27. Ada says:

    I hope these come to Canada this year! I have Rockstar and love it.

  28. Kymberlee says:

    I have Rockstar, Stash and Bourbon. I like UD’s eyeliners a lot but I have to sharpen them more frequently than other brands. Has anyone else noticed this?

  29. Megan says:

    I use 24/7 in Zero daily, so naturally, I was ecstatic when I saw this set. Even though I am an aspiring makeup artist, and it’s important to have a wide range of colors, I figured I’d probably only use Eldarado, Ransom, and Zero, so I think I’ll pass…. but I’ll probably get it anyway sooner or later! :)

  30. Deb says:

    I would totally get this…if I didn’t already have so many of those shades! UD pencil sets are usually a great deal.

  31. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    Ahhh, I am sadly one of those butter-fingered souls. I just can’t get the minis to apply well. I’ll stick to my MUFE Aqua Eyes and MAC Technakohl :/

  32. Such pretty colors! :) Thanks for the swatches Karen! ;)

  33. Amy says:

    Hmm, I like 24/7 liners but the colors are a bit too daring for me! I love Underground, which isn’t part of this set, but it’s a great neutral color. Kind of brown with plum, taupe and gold in it. *LOVE*
