How is everybody coping with going back to work after the holidays? The beginning is always a bit rough, no?
Today I’m bringing you swatches of Bourbon and Lucky, the two new members of my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye pencil family. These pencils are so addictive! I only use them on my lower lash line, which means it’ll take me forever to finish one even if they are travel-size, but they all look so nice and colorful that I keep wanting more!
Anyways, without further ado, here are the swatch pictures:
Bourbon is an extremely warm, medium-to-dark opaque brown. You can see some gold sparkle in it, though to me personally it does not scream “glitterville!” The sparkle is fine, but since there is enough of it, you can see this color come to life when there is enough light! I have tested this one out, and I am happy to report the glitter doesn’t get into my eyes. It also wears just as well as all my other 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils too!
Lucky is a rich metallic copper with silver glitter. You can see in the pictures that there isn’t as much glitter in this one as there is in Bourbon, though probably because of the color combination (silver and copper) that it seems more noticeable. I haven’t tried this out so I can’t say for sure if there will be glitter fallout, but if you look at the second picture you will see the glitter is not coarser than the bigger grains in Bourbon. Since Bourbon works well for me, I do not expect to have problems with this one either. I will for sure report if I do though!
The quality of these two is typical Urban Decay. I can wash and rub the back of my hand as much as I want after doing the swatches, but it won’t completely go away till I take my makeup remover out. These are the first shimmery/sparkly/glittery ones I own, but the texture is just as creamy and I don’t feel them dragging on my lids.
What do you think? Have you also collected a bunch of these pencils? Are you hunting down some new shades? Does either Bourbon or Lucky speak to you?
