It wouldn't be Christmas without an Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil box set or two. Lucky for us, there are indeed two on offer - and I have one here to swatch today. Black Market is a set of six mini-pencils, in deep, dark shades - perfect for those of us who don't really wear bright liner.
The set contains West - a dark brown pearl; Desperation, a deep taupe-grey matte; Black Market, a charcoal black satin; Riot, a smoky grey with micro sparkle; Apathy, a metallic olive green; and Ink, a deep navy satin. Of the six shades, five are brand new and exclusive - only Desperation has been available before this set.
If you click the swatches below to enlarge, you'll get a good sense of the shimmer in some of the shades.
I think Riot and Apathy are my favourites - although, Black Market is surprisingly pretty for something described as a black satin. There are multi-coloured bits of shimmer in there - obviously these won't really show up on the eye unless you apply your liner heavily, but there's enough sparkle to give a bit of extra dimension to the eye.
The Black Market set costs £26 - a reasonable price given that a single 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil is £14 - and if your 24/7 liner collection is missing a few deep, dark shades, this set is a perfect way to get them. Find it now at HQ Hair, Debenhams, and House of Fraser.
