Urban Decay Ink for Eyes

You’d be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn’t love Urban Decay’s 24/7 liners. The color selection and smudge- and budge-proof quality are why I love them. But I’ve been showing love to another Urban Decay liner lately – the creamy Ink for Eyes.

I’ve been using Demolition, a chocolate brown shade, and I’ve kind of got the warm and fuzzies for it. First, the product. It’s very creamy and soft, which is likely from the “secret ingredient” of Nylon 12, which helps give it that soft, drag-free application and absorb any excess oil. No joke, this stuff feels so good when you apply. It’s easy to use, buildable and while it isn’t extremely pigmented, I’ve encountered no issues with streaky color.

Next, the packaging. It’s a long, thin case with a full-length mirror and equipped with a double-ended brush which I actually use. I hardly ever use the brushes included in palettes – but the angled liner brush works like a charm and the smudger is surprisingly high quality as well. Kudos to Urban Decay for making every bit of this product usable!

Now for the wear. I think primer is essential – but for me, primer is a must with any product on the lid. For some that’s an extra step but it’s just daily routine for this gal. I’ve mostly been wearing Demolition smudged along the top lash line and I’ve experienced no creasing. This isn’t a waterproof liner, but it does stay put and doesn’t noticeably fade.

I’m eager to try other colors. I think this is a worthy cream liner and a good addition to my makeup bag. Anyone else have any experience with the Ink for Eyes? Do tell!

  1. ohhh, this looks lovely. I seriously need to treat myself to some Urban Decay, i’ve been lusting after their stuff for so long. Primer and some really great eye colors I think, and maybe this!

  2. I have Urban Decay Ink for Eyes in Empire (purple) and was really underwhelmed. The product didn’t apply smoothly, didn’t last very long, and smudged everywhere. I prefer the 24/7 eye pencils, or MAC or Stila gel eyeliners.
