Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil 6 Piece collection

Beauty Bay



Hey Beauty Babes!

Late last year, I took the plunge and finally decided to invest in some Urban Decay products. I wanted to get the best value for my money, so I decided to buy this awesome kit of travel sized eyeliners (because you can never have enough eyeliners). You can’t buy Urban Decay here in Australia (and apparently you can’t buy stuff from their website and have it sent to Australia), so I had to venture to one of their genuine stockists – BeautyBay.com. I believe they are based in the UK, and deliver took around 3 weeks (but that’s just due to Christmas). Here is the description for this kit from Beauty Bays website:

Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil 6 Piece Collection is a must have collection of travel sized eyeliners. Featuring five exclusive shades and one core hue in better than basic deep, smokey shades, Black Market 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil 6 Piece Collection is the ultimate eyeliner collection for every woman. 24/7 Glide On Pencils are created with 50% moisturising ingredients including Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil, suspended in a waterproof formula for long lasting colour and a comfortable and smooth application.

The eyeliners are presented in a foam casing of some sorts – it looks pretty cool but they are a pain to get out (as you might be able to tell from the damage I have inflicted on the poor thing).

On to the swatches!



West is described as a “dark brown pearl”. It’s a nice classic brown for the days when black is a little too dark, but greys or taupes feel a little too boring. Perfect for everyday use.




Desperation is described as a deep taupe/matte grey. You could almost go as far as saying it’s a mushroom-y colour (or is that just me? I’m weird I know). This is also a great colour for everyday, especially in an office environment when you can’t be bothered with black


Black Market


Black Market is our “black” colour for this set, it’s described as a charcoal black satin This is a perfect everyday colour and it’s not as dark and intimidating as some other black eyeliners out there. Although if you are looking for a super dark black eyeliner, then this may not be dark enough for you.




Now on to the bolder half of the set. Riot is described as a Smokey grey matte with violet and fuchsia micro sparkle, but honestly it comes across as just being a super awesome  purple. I personally use this everyday as I like to spice up my “office” makeup with this, but it may not be appropriate for all work-places! I’m pretty sure this is my favourite colour from the set, and once my little pencil runs out I will be buying a full sized one!




Apathy is described as a metallic olive green shimmer. I must admit this is really a beautiful colour. It would be perfect if you are doing a green and gold eye look and want to add some class. Definitely a colour to use when you want to step out of the norm.




Ink is a deep navy blue satin. And it’s gorgeous. Even though it’s not a colour I would wear all the time, it’s certainly a handy colour to have (Doctor Who makeup anyone?). It is such a fun colour, and you could pair it will a dark black eyeliner to create an interesting doubled layer look that will have everyone talking.


Overall, I am totally in love with this set. I love how you have your perfect everyday colours teamed with some bold and exciting colours. This is a perfect place to start if you are looking to get your feet wet in the massive Urban Decay eyeliner pool, or just want to start up your eyeliner collection. They work out to be $9 each, which is honestly not that bad for something as high market as Urban Decay. Also, I have listed the RRP, but Beauty Bay usually has sales on (currently they have 25% off), so you can grab a bargain – plus free shipping to Australia!

    I am sold on this now. I was debating for a while about whether to get this set as I don’t need anymore eyeliner but the selection looks too good to pass on. I’ve got two mini ones already from the shattered and anarchy face cases and love them. Xx
