When you want to use eyeliner pencils you want to use the best pencils in the business, right? Well I know I do. So I use the best pencils in makeup business and those are Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. They are creamy, forever-lasting, award-winning and waterproof. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils delight you with lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals. The best eye pencil ever! Never has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. So velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge. Line your eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of colors. These work incredibly well with Urban Decay Eyeshadows!
Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, Glide-On 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied. Made with Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil. When your Glide-On 24/7 Eye Pencils start to get dull, use the small barrel of our Grindhouse Double Barrel Sharpener to grind them back to a perfect point. Urban Decay is beauty with an edge™ . Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.
There are over 44 shades to try out. I have a bunch myself but was sent four specific ones to try out. Alkaline, Roach, Demolition and Zero. Alkaline is a gorgeous bright matte Magenta Purple that goes with the new Balktalk Palette. Roach is a beautiful metallic brown. Demolition is a matte charcoal brown. And Zero is a matte black.
Here is a picture of Alkaline:

I love these pencils. Why? Mainly because they are so long-wearing, they go on creamy and so easily and there are so many colors to choose from. I don't know of any other line that has this many colors to choose from where the pencils are so wonderful!!! These are, IMO, the best eyeliner pencils on the market. And I don't think that is just my opinion. I think that a lot of people hold the same opinion on this too. These are just amazing. They really are wonderful. Apply to the top of the eye first, smooth on and they will start off just a little hard but the heat of your body will start to melt the crayon. Then they go on with a boom! Color explodes onto the lid. You could easily color your whole lid with the eyeliner, I've done that. It looks amazing, especially if it is a metallic color. The color goes along the lash line quite easily and by the time you get to the bottom it is smooth sailing. You can even do your waterline with these. It is not techically recommended but people do it all the time.
