Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ransom

I had received this sample sized Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Ransom in one of my monthly subscription boxes a little while ago and I am so awful with keeping up with my reviews I am finally getting the chance to review and swatch it.

The Urban Decay glide on pencils are probably one of my favorite pencil liners.  The name just speaks for itself.  The color of the liners glide on so smoothly and effortlessly, and because the formula and consistency is so creamy and soft, you have some time to play around to blend and smudge the color before it sets.

They have a rainbow of colors to choose from and to be honest this is the first time I have ever really enjoyed a color liner.  Because I am more into the neutral looks, I tend to go for the black and brown liners.  But what I absolutely love about the Urban Decay liners is that they are like a shadow stick.  The creaminess of the liner allow you to use the liner as a base for your shadows to intensify the look.

So instead of using this beautiful, and very opaque, creamy purple liner to line my eyes, I just smudged a bit of the color on the outer lashline and brought the color up to the crease.  Set it with a bit of shadow and you'll be ready for a fun night out without having to worry about your eye look budging.

It's been a while since I have reached for my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil liners, and this has really helped me re-discover my love for them.




  1. I like UD pencil liners, but Ransom just doesn't work for me.. & I keep getting Ransom in kits and everything! I have so much laying around.. lol

    1. aw so sorry the color doesn't work for you. Yeah I wish they were more versatile with the colors they include in their kits.
