Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

I happened to get this item on a recent binge-purchase of multiple items from the Urban Decay sale section.  It was only available in one color.  Unfortunately, it’s almost exactly the same color as the Make Up For Ever lip pencilI recently bought…

Pros:  Long-lasting.  Paraben-free.

Cons: Expensive (if not on sale).  A little drying to lips.

In Summary:  I put a little lip balm on before lip liner, anyway, so that helps with the dryness.  I suggest applying this to your entire lip, because it will last longer than the rest of your lip product.  If you only use it on the outside, you’ll end up wearing ONLY lip liner – and that’s just a weird look.  I actually thought this color was a little “orange” when I saw it online, but it was more of a nude/neutral “in real life”.  It’s actually a great color and a great product, so I think I got an amazing deal.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars  4-stars

Price:  Originally $20 (USD) – On sale for $3 (USD) Yes, THREE DOLLARS!

Available at: UrbanDecay.com,   Sephora,Ulta,Beauty.com

Note:  I think the one I bought is an older “version”, but the name hasn’t changed, so I just think they changed the color offerings.

Love This! Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner

I know I haven’t posted in a looooong time.  I’ve been so busy lately I’ve barely had time to sleep (5 hours is enough, right?), let alone attend to my blog.  Anyway, I’ve gotten one of my major time-consuming “to do” items taken care of (shopping for a car), so I can take care of some of these posts that have been kicking around inside my head.

I almost always wear lipliner, and have quite a collection.  While my favorites (and pretty much the only ones I use) are NYX Slim Lip pencil and Sephora Collection “Nano”, I was willing to try the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip, partially because it said “waterproof”.  Now, I don’t NEED waterproof stuff, but I often buy it because I know it will stay in place better in the hot, humid climate of South Texas.  Although I would normally not spend this much for a lipliner, I realized they last longer than lots of other things I use, so it didn’t seem like a ridiculous amount to spend, and this one certainly impressed me…

Pros:  Smooth texture.  Stays in place.  Doesn’t “bleed”.  Long-lasting.

Cons:  Can dry out a bit as the day goes on. Expensive.

Interesting information:  From the Sephora.com product description:  “…the Aqua collection of long-lasting lip and eye colors was created for the Parisian Aquatic Ballet. Tested under water for five hours…”

In Summary:  Honestly, this is the best lipliner I’ve ever used.  While I’m never going to be a Parisian Aquatic Ballet performer, I love that this product stays on all day.  As I do with all lipliners, I apply it to my entire lip, so that as my lipstick/gloss wears off, I have a “backup” color.  This one is absolutely perfect for my needs, even though the price prevents me from buying it in every color. (Yes, I’m tempted!)
