Urban Decay Smoke Out Liner Review

Hi Y'all... I just wanted to do a quick product review. I was in Sephora the other day (don't know how I ended up in there, lol)... I picked up Urban Decay's Smoke Out Liner...
What the package says: This amazing slim pencil defines with precision, imparting rich, smoldering color with a powdery finish. With the attached blender tip, Smoke Out softens to a feathery edge like no other liner. Mesmerizing, smokey eyes just got easy.

Here's a swatch on my hand. One with just the line and the second "smoked out".

So I thought this would be a great pencil to add to my collection! Unfortunately it's not.. No me guesta at all! To be honest this pencil straight up sucks! You have to use a lot of pressure just to make a line. I mean you have to press hard to a simple line. Finally after I tortured my poor eye lid in the name of vanity I used the tip to smudge the line and nothing happened!! I tried again and it smudged a tiny bit. Yeah it looks smudged on my hand but your able to press harder on your hand.
The package claims a powdery finish. Well in my opinion the finish is not powdery! You can barely see it.
I tried sharpening it thinking maybe that was the problem, nope.... I tried doing the old school putting a lighter to to quickly to soften it. Did that help no! I'm really pissed because I threw away my receipt.
I haven't given up on Urban Decay. I have great eyeshadows. I love my Ammo Palette, their Primer Potion is part of my daily routine. I'm just really disappointed in this pencil. I've heard great reviews about their 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils.... I'm hoping that this pencil doesn't really suck and maybe I got a bad one or one from a bad batch...... >_<
So that's $14 down the hole....

I give this product out of 5
1
I'm being nice, maybe I can use the tip to smudge another eyeliner pencil.....

XoXo

Don't lose hope yet! You can still return it! Just let them know you didn't like the product and you just purchased it. Sephora has a really easy return policy. You'll get store credit!

Get the UD 24/7 pencil in zero, instead. It stays put and it's easy to smudge using a brush. I use the Sonia Kashuk Smudge brush and it works wonders with UD 24/7.

awww! Im sorry that it did not work out for you :( I love the Glide on pencils though :)

Thanks for this review! I was thinking about trying these too. I agree with Jen and Iyah the 24/7 glide on pencils are better! They are totally my HG liners.
