First and foremost, my apologises for not updating in what feels like forever. Some rather not-so-nice things are going on at home, and I've been really busy and tired with uni. Hopefully things will calm down pretty soon since I now have my permanent timetable, so I can get into an updating schedule again.
Moving on...An Urban Decay review!
I've been admiring Urban Decay products for years, but this actually my first ever Urban Decay product. It's also my first liquid liner, since I usually go for gel. I had been saving up for the Primer Potion, but I saw the 24/7 liners and I was tempted by the sparkly purple one...Retrograde. I can't resist purple.
I get far too excited about packaging, and this box does not help with this box collecting thing I have going on. Isn't it pretty?
Onto the liner itself, it's a gorgeous purple colour, with little sparkles in it. It's beautiful. I had never been tempted by liquid liners until I saw this one. It isn't a vibrant purple, it's actually quite dark, which makes me love it even more.

The liner has a super fine yet firm brush and a long handle for control, which makes it much easier people like me who are new to liquid liners. You will need to shake the liner before use, or the colour ends up slightly watery.
|My camera refused to get a clear picture of the brush so I've had to settle for this one - sorry it's so dark.|
This eyeliner stays on forever. The lasting time is fantastic. As stated in the name, it is totally waterproof. I can go out in the pouring rain without my umbrella and return home with my eyeliner still intact. I've never had it fade or rub away on me as of yet, which is great for those long days at uni. They also come in 11 shades, so there are plenty of options available.
I'm actually struggling to think of things that I don't like about this liner. Maybe that it stays wet for a short while after application, but really, it isn't long at all and it's a very minor issue.
I think I'll be adding the pencil liners to my list of what I want to get hold of next from Urban Decay. Have you tried any of the liners, and if so what did you think?
Disclosure: I bought this product myself.
