Recently I bought a new eye pencil, the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in the shade Demolition. For years I’ve been loving these Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils and that’s why I wanted to add another one to my collection. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and that’s why I felt like it’s about time for me to start talking about it. So, in today’s post I’m going to let you know what this shade Demolition is like, what my experiences are with it and whether or not I’d actually recommend getting this eye pencil. If you are interested in finding out about all that, you going to have to make sure that you continue reading this post!
The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils always have this really distinct packaging. I do have an awful lot of eye pencils so I like that these are really easy to find. The cap of the pencil is silver and has this specific shape to it. The bottom part is silver as well. The part in the middle has the same colour as the pencil does. This makes it really easy to find the right shade when you have multiple Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in your collection.
Aside from the colour and the shape I also think that the look of this pencil is pretty much great. I just love how simple yet cool it looks. It really looks bad-ass. Well, to a certain extend. I mean, how bad-ass can a pencil look right? But it’s very Urban. Very Urban Decay. And I like that.
This pencil isn’t one you can twist up, it’s not mechanical. Therefore you do have to sharpen it. Even though those mechanical pencils are easier, they do break very easily and you’ll never have a sharp tip with those. This pencil is really soft and easy to sharpen, so to me it’s okay that that’s the way it works. Both have their pro’s and cons, but I don’t hate that about it.

This isn’t actually my first Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. I already have a couple. Pretty much every single one I had up and till now had some sort of shimmer to them. Therefore I decided I wanted to go for a matte one this time. I don’t like using black eye pencil these days and since I already had their black shade, I decided to go for a deep brown colour. This ended up being Demolition. I have to say, in such a wide colour selection it’s hard to decide on which shade you’re going to get. But this shade seemed to be the most perfect for me. It’s very deep, it doesn’t have a very warm or very cool tone to it and it’s matte. It’s all I was looking for.
I know that eye pencil might be a bit out these days. Back when I was younger everyone used to love eye pencil but that era is over. However, I still prefer it over eyeliner. I don’t use it in the same way though. I use eye pencil on my tightline to darken up the lash line. This will make my lashes look more thick and intense. No need for eye liner!
Every now and then when I really want to go all out, I also like to use this on the outer part of my lower lash line. Don’t go in too far if you don’t want to look like me when I was younger. But putting it on just the outer part does create a really pretty smokey effect. It makes things look more dramatic and intense.
The quality of these 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils is the reason why I wanted a new one so bad. Because I love eye pencil a lot I have tried a ton of different ones with all kinds of different price-tags. These Urban Decay ones really are the best to me and that’s for a couple of reasons. The first reason being the formula on them. They are very soft, they literally glide on to the eye (hence the name). They are very pigmented at the same time as well and the colour pay-off is great. You don’t have to irritate your eyes in order to get enough product on there.
The second reason why I love it so much is because of the staying power. They also suggest it in their name by saying 24/7, but these things really don’t budge. Back in the day when I still used to abuse eye pencil I always looked like a racoon after a couple of hours. I have pretty watery eyes and eye pencil doesn’t like that. However, watery eyes are no problem for Urban Decay. This pencil doesn’t go anywhere. No matter what you do it stays. And it stays for the entire day. I really notice a difference in how much darkness comes off my eyes at night when I remove my eye makeup compared to days where I haven’t used this pencil. It’s insane.
All in all I just think that the quality of this pencil is great. It is really intense, the colour pay-off is amazing and it literally just glides onto the eyes. It also has an incredible staying power and that makes this the most bullet-proof eye pencil I have ever known. I’m really glad they have such a wide variety of shades in their collection because I definitely want to try even more of these amazing pencils in the future! I highly recommend giving them a try!
With that being said I think it’s time to end today’s post. Thank you so much for reading it, I hope you enjoyed it, and be sure to let me know if you still use eye pencil!
