Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil - Review & Swatches

Hi Everyone!
I thought that it would be fun to share my collection of Urban Decay lip pencils with you all. Urban Decay currently sell 10 different colours and I own 6 of them. The colour selection available is not massively varied like in other brands such as MAC but you should find what you need! The pencils contain Jojoba oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed oil which Urban Decay claims will nourish your lips and improve with the smoothness of the application.

I also have quite a few of the MAC lip pencils in my collection and compared to them these pencils have a much easier, smoother but thicker application. These are more creamy than the MAC pencils and do not dry out your lips at all which I can find is a problem with some other lip pencils from other brands. Despite the creamy texture of the pencils they are great and stopping you lipstick and gloss from feathering and help it to stay put.

Ozone: Clear
Illegal: Rosy Neutral
Midnight Cowboy: Taupe Pink
Wallflower: Medium Nude
Naked: Neutral Pink
Wicked: Shimmering light pink

*Please note that I did not swatch Ozone as it is clear and would not show up on camera!

Overall these pencils are pricey but could quality. As I have mentioned above they do their job really well and prevent your lips from drying out. My only negative point would be that their current colour selection is not as large as with other brands.

You can purchase the Urban Decay lip pencils from in the UK from stockists such as Debenhams House of Fraser and HQ Hair for £12 or from the official Urban Decay website for $19 in the US.
