Urban Decay Smoked 24/7 Gilde-on Eye Pencil Set

Hooray for Urban Decay's seasonal sets and palettes! This 24/7 pencil treasure trove is a flanker for the Urban Decay Smoked eyeshadow palette, and contains 6 half-pint sized shades of UD's set-down liner designed to complement Ye Olde Smokey Eye.

It's a mix of staple shades (yes, there's Zero again) and new and limited colours. Demolition, a dark matte brown, and Zero, a slightly sparkly black, are available in the permanent 24/7 line. Completely new in this collection are Smog, a warm coppery brown, and Mainline, a matte dark teal. Then there's Uzi, a sparkly gunmetal which appeared in the anniversary 24/7 set, and Empire, which I think has cropped up before on one end of a 24/7 duo pencil.

L-R - Smog, Empire, Uzi, Mainline, Demolition, Zero

Costing £26 for 6 shades, this is a cost-effective way to get introduced to Urban Decay's 24/7 liner, which remains one of the best smudge-proof long-wear pencils around. The selection is excellent too, providing staple colours and some interesting variations that are wearable without being bland.

My only niggle is that they included the "old" black Zero rather than the newer and more pigmented black shade, Perversion, which is a sock-knocking-off pitch black with no pesky sparkles.

If you fancy getting your hands on these, you can buy the set now at BeautyBay.
