A while ago, I bought the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash off Hautelook. Since Hautelook is a daily deal site, it’s not available there anymore – but luckily it’s still available (and only $9, which is about what I paid for it) on Urban Decay’s website.
The set is a fantastic deal – each full sized (2.8g) 24/7 Shadow Pencil sells for $20, while the set contains five 2.5g (almost full size!) pencils, and is currently selling for less than half the price of one full size pencil. If you’ve ever been interested in trying out this product, now is the time to do it!
Overall, I like these but I don’t love them. The neutral colors are gorgeous – and the three neutrals make the price of the set completely worth it to me – and the brights are beautiful, though not colors I really see myself wearing very often. They don’t crease at all, whether worn alone or as a base. However, I found them quite difficult to blend – they seemed quite dry to me. Because I had trouble blending out the edges, it’s hard for me to wear them alone; I need a powder shadow on top to get a blended edge. Still, the set is worth it to me just to get them to use as bases!
Here are swatches of the five colors that are included: from left to right, they are Sin, Juju, Rehab, Clash, and Delinquent.
Have you tried the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencils? Do you find them as dry and difficult to blend as I do?
