Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencils

Available in 5 matte shades, the new Urban Decay's 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencils are specifically developed for use on the waterline and are supposed to last all day. This is really interesting, isn't it?

All of these shade have a matte finish, none of them have a shimmery or glittery finish. The first time I used them, I had to pass many times on my waterline to get great color. After a few tries, I learned that the color payoff is much better if I wipe the tip of the pencil on a tissue prior to the application. I still need to pass a few times but the product is a lot more pigmented and it seems to increase the staying power as well. I'm not sure why, maybe because they dry out a little bit between each use? If these pencils have poor pigmentation on you, try this little trick. It really works well for me!

The formula, texture and finish are exactly the same for all shades. However, the wear of these eye pencils is not always consistent. Sometimes they last all day on me (more than 8 hours), but other times they disappear very quickly. I can't figure out why! At first, I thought that some shades performed differently but I've been testing them out for 2 months now and no, it's not that. It seems to stay longer if I dry the waterline with a Q-tip before applying the pencil, but it doesn't always work.

Have you tried these pencils? If you found a good trick, please share with me!
