I originally purchased the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil Stash during the 2011 Holiday Season. I loved this set so much I ended up purchasing another when it was on clearance. I use these pencils with eyeshadow primer whenever it’s humid where I live. On days when there is less humidity I apply the shadow pencils without primer and the color stays until I remove my makeup. Got more than 12 hour wear from these pencils. I’ve used the 24/7 shadow pencils by themselves, as a liner and an eyeshadow base. The regular size pencils are $20.00 each and come in 12 colors.
Recently I purchased the Milani Shadow Eyez 12 HR Pencil. I purchased two pencils at CVS for $6.79. I tested the Shadow Eyez pencils without primer and the pencils less than 8 hours. With eyeshadow primer the Shadow Eyez pencils last all day. The Milani Shadow Eyez 12 HR Pencil normally retails for $6.99 and is available in 6 colors.
I still love the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils. I admit $20.00 is a bit much to pay, but their long wear and choice in colors is worth it to me. I will still refer back to the Milani Shadow Eye 12 HR Pencil for the two shades I swatched.
