Review+Swatches - Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

I kinda feel like lip liners have become the nylons of the makeup world. I mean, how often do you use one? Or rather, maybe I should ask myself that question? I have always had an issue with feathering and lip bleeding from most lippies but I do forget to use a lip liner unless I am trying out a super-rich red or a Lip Tar. Then I seem to know better.

So my fall resolution is this:

WEAR.
LIP.
LINER/PENCIL.
WHENEVER.
WEARING.
A.
LIPPIE.

Ok!! Got it now.

So what better makeup brand to make this resolution with then URBAN DECAY and their 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19 @ ulta.comurbandecay.com).

The colors are totally wearable, glide on smoothly, are really pigmented, and they really stay put! I find it really hard to believe that these contain vitamin E, jojoba oil and cottonseed oil, as any of those would make it seem like they would only help them to slide off, but they don’t.

Here are the colors I tried and some swatches ...

Here are the colors I tried and some swatches from L to R in the below pic: Venom – rich plum, Bang – bright orange-red, Anarchy – bright fuchsia, 69 – classic red.

The most interesting one of the bunch is this Ozone. It’s clear, so you don’t have to worry about matching your lippie to this one and it can be used two different ways. On the lips to secure the color on the lips like a normal pencil or traced around the lips for extra protection against feathering.

How do you feel about lip liners/pencils these days?
