Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil Set

We had a look at one of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil sets being released for Christmas last week - and here's the other one.  Ocho Loco 2 is a followup to the original Ocho Loco set released last year, which was (according to the press release) very popular.  I seem to have missed last year's version, but I've got this year's version to show you.

There are a variety of shades in this collection - from the darkest black (Perversion, which I suspect is the blackest black liner ever) to the bright turquoise of Deep End, there's also a mix of finishes.  Some are matte, some satin, and some contain a ton of glitter.  They're all full size, too.

You also get a sharpener with the set, which is pretty handy.

The best thing about swatching eyeliner like this is that I no longer need to caption all my images with the names of what I'm swatching.  That means I can pretty much use the captions for something else.

Perversion is an incredible black - so inky and sooty.  Roach and Twice Baked both look sheer in comparison, and both contain a good dose of sparkle - a more metallic sheen on Roach, and golden glitter in Twice Baked.

For example, I could tell you that I currently have about 25 Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils in my collection, and I'm fairly sure if I laid them all out, I'd find a new "exclusive" shades which are pretty much the same as some of the ones in the permanent collection.
Crave is one of the rare matte shades - it's a brown black which is a little on the sheer side, giving more subtle definition.  Deep End and Mars both have a metallic finish to them - and both are intensely pigmented, giving a bright, opaque finish.

Also, who came up with the name Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil?  It's almost as if UD wanted to cause bloggers' fingers to almost fall off from having to capitalise about a million words in the product name.
Ultraviolet is a little on the patchy side, but it's absolutely stuffed with violet glitter, and is very attention grabbing and sparkly.  Tornado is a little more reserved - it's billed as being somewhat similar to the deep sparkling plum Rockstar shade, but it's a little more blue/black than Rockstar, which is very definitely purple.

The Ocho Loco 2 set will cost you £40 at House of Fraser - not bad for 8 eyeliners which retail for around £14 each - although the usual caveat applies - if you've been collection 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils for a while, you might find you have some dupes for these shades.
