Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion

I've been playing around with this for a couple of weeks now. I love liquid liners, especially ones that stay put. As far as the 24/7 Liquid Liner goes, it's comparable to MAC's Superslick Liquid Eye Liner & Illamasqua's Precision Ink. All three are waterproof & when removed, they flake off rather than smearing all over the place (a huge reason why I like these kind of liners). Wear-time is great with these type of liners, they stay put all day until you remove them. I haven't noticed any flaking or peeling with them.

The main difference between the Urban Decay version of this type of liner & the MAC & Illamasqua versions is that the UD liner has an actual brush instead of a felt-tip type applicator.

MAC - Superslick, UD - 24/7

The actual liners are very similar. I don't have the black Illamasqua version, Abyss (I have the gorgeous Glister), but it seems very similar to the UD & MAC liners. They're quite shiny, not a matte finish like a regular liquid liner.
These come off quite easily with Shu Uemura's cleansing oils. I don't use a normal eye make-up remover, so I'm not sure how much effort it would take to get these off compared to a tradition type liquid liner.
UD - 24/7, MAC - Superslick (On The Hunt)

I think the MAC liners were limited edition, but they will probably pop up again in a collection at some point. Whether to go for MAC, Illamasqua or UD boils down to preference with the applicators. I prefer the brush, I feel as though I get more control with it & it's better suited to my smaller lids than the felt-tip style.


  1. The Debenham's near me completely sold out in ever colour by the time I went to take a look =|! I'm quite glad you've said it's not matte - I have too many matte liners!

    Love J.

  2. They sold out of every colour? They must be popular.

    Yep, it doesn't look super shiny on the eye, but it's definitely not as matte as a regular liner. Some of the colours have shimmer too. The teal one looks quite interesting. :)
