The Urban Decay Ink for Eyes is an inky-black felt tip eyeliner. As expected from Urban decay, it is incredibly black and pigmented. The tip is super fine, but as you can see in the picture below, mine is slightly frayed. This hasn’t however effected the precision of application as it hasn’t affected the whole brush but it is a bit of an inconvenience. I find it really easy to create thin and thick lines with this pen, and creating a wing is also really achievable.
Winged liner has always been my go-to look – I would even go as far as to say it’s my signature. For the past two years or so, I’ve been more focused on trying gel eyeliners, but I felt I wanted a change. I have very oily eyes so I struggle with eyeliners smudging, so I’ve been searching for my perfect inky black, waterproof and long-lasting eyeliner and when Urban Decay released a new liquid eyeliner, I knew I had to try it.
In terms of longevity, it definitely lives up to the claims. It is very waterproof – so much so that it can be difficult to remove. However, using an oil (such as The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil post here) makes it much easier to break down the product and remove. It doesn’t transfer to my brow bone and stays looking perfect all day long.
Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands and it definitely hasn’t disappointed this time. Have you given any of the new eyeliners from the brand a go? My eye is now on the cream liner…
