Hey all beauty geeks!!! Hope everyone is doing well. I am enjoying the warm weather with sudden downpour at times. Anyways, I love eye makeup as most of us here. However, at times it seems like a jhanjhat to me 😉 With all the steps like primer, base, liner, etc., how I wished there was a quick and easy solution. Well, when I looked at Urban Decay Shadow pencils, I had a feeling that ‘achhe din aane wale hain’ 😉 Let us find out if I did get what I was praying for. 🙂

Price : $20
My take on Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Rehab:
The moment I read the description that these pencils are chubby shadow pencils, I knew I got the answer to my prayers. Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil is available in several different shades. I picked up Rehab along with three other shades. Rehab is a chocolate brown with red undertones and bordering towards taupe. The shade is perfect for a darker smokey eye look or a neutral wash of color. I can increase the intensity of the color depending on the look I am going for.
It is a multitasker as well. I use it as a base, an eyeshadow and a thick liner. For a quick look, just apply it on your lids and blend the edges a bit. Apply a mascara and you are done. Add a darker matte shadow in the crease and an eyeliner for a more intense look. I am so happy with my pick. This reduces my makeup time so much that my husband gets shocked that I get ready so fast these days. 😉
Texture: The shadow pencil is very creamy, smooth and glides like a dream on the eyelids. No dragging is ever required. Just one swipe gives a rich color on the eyes. It is blendable easily for the first 15 seconds, but once it is set, it does not move or crease.
Pigmentation: Ah-mazing pigmentation. I have never used more than two strokes on my eyes. The color is so intense that generally you will not need more than one swipe.
Staying Power: Stays for an entire day without a primer. Does not crease or smudge for the entire day on my oily lids. Though these are waterproof, can be easily removed by olive oil or a makeup remover.
Packaging: The shadow pencils are chubby, almost like chubby lip balms these days. They come with a silver cap and the name of the shade is mentioned on the pencil itself. You need to sharpen it once the tip gets blunt.

Final Impression: Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil in Rehab is my favourite product these days. Saves me a lot of time and energy and the result is still amazing 😉 What more do I need. The neutral shade of Rehab looks lovely both during day or at night. Can be dressed up or down as per your mood. Perfect for both beginners and experts. Highly Recommended!!!
