It’s been a while since I bought an eye pencil. So, imagine my delight when I was given this incredible Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2, 24/7 glide on eye pencil set for my Birthday. Oh my! It contains a whopping 8 full size eyeliner pencils, and is enough to keep this gal occupied in the eye department for a while. That’s the great thing about eyeliner – they last forever, and they are universally flattering.
Seriously, I have never met anyone who doesn’t look good with a little smudge of a pencil. With eyeliner, the possibilities are endless. A ‘sixties’ inspired eye perhaps, or a smouldering vixen, rimmed in the water line to make your eyes pop, or just on the outer edges to make those peepers appear larger. Eyeliner rocks. Just don’t go all dark and heavy handed if you’re younger than 15. That does not look cute. Sorry.
Those who are already familiar with the Urban Decay eyeliner pencils will love that this set includes five totally new shades, and also returning favorites, like Deep End and Perversion. My personal favorite is Roach – although I’m not a fan of the name, the color is a gorgeous smouldering bronze, and would look incredible with a wash of gold eyeshadow. The other great thing about this set, is that at least four of the colors are neutral, but not boring. The brights are also fun to use smudged under the lower lash line, or at the outer edges of the top lashes, to reveal a flash of color when you blink. Pretty.
I think I am swiftly becoming Urban Decay’s biggest fan, as these eyeliners deliver beautiful, pigmented, long lasting color – the only thing I’m thinking now is; If this is the Ocho Loco 2, there must have been an original version. I need it now.
