Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner Review in Midnight Cowboy and ACDC
Hey guys! Today I am reviewing a product that adds some sparkle and glam to any look - Urban Decay's Heavy Metal Glitter Liners.
I'm a pretty big fan of Urban Decay. I like most of their stuff. When I seen these glitter eyeliners I just had to try them. I figured as much as I love sparkle and glitter, I should have a couple of these!
Here's what I think!
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners in Midnight Cowboy and ACDC
The Heavy Metal Glitter Liners come in 7 different shades. I figured I should choose a more neutral color, like gold (Midnight Cowboy), but also wanted something brighter and more colorful too so I got the purple as well (ACDC).
Here are all 7 colors:
A lot of people complain of glitter eyeliners causing their eyes to sting and tear up. The Urban Decay ones are known for not causing this common issue. Something about the formula makes them more gentle on sensitive eyes. I myself have sensitive eyes and these don't bother me at all!
The base is clear and the glitter is super fine. You can wear this as a thin (or thick) line on your lids, you can use it in the inner corners or lower lashline for a pop of sparkle, and you can also wear this all over your lid on top of another shadow (you just paint it on).
These don't seem to dry immediately but still pretty fast. There is tons and tons of glitter in them too so when you apply it, you don't have to go over it a million times like other glitter liners that I have used. You still need to paint over a line a few times usually until it's solid enough, but there have been times that I got enough glitter in just one swipe.
Midnight Cowboy is a gorgeous gold shade, which pretty much goes with any look. And ACDC is a bright, beautiful purple (my favorite color). I love both. They really show up and sparkle so much. They exceeded my expectations and I ended up loving these more than I thought I would.
The brush is not too flimsy and not too firm, it's just perfect. It is also super thin, which makes it easy to apply. What I am really impressed with is the fact that the glitter does not BUDGE all day. You would think little pieces would eventually flake off. Nope. Not with these! It stays on all day and looks beautiful.
A cool fact about these as well is that they contain Cucumber and Peach Extract to condition the skin, and Carrot Extract to smooth and soften.
Here are a couple of eye looks I created using Midnight Cowboy. Sorry I don't have any photos yet of ACDC on me, but I will try and get one up soon to add to this post!
Swatches: Midnight Cowboy and ACDC
I love love love these glitter liners! They are a great way to incorporate a little glitter into your look. In both of the eyelooks I just subtlety added them. Not too glittery but enough that you can see it and enough that it adds a nice accent to the shadows. As I mentioned too, they can be applied all over the lid. So instead of using glitter glue and glitter, sometimes you could just paint this stuff on and get the exact same effect!
I definitely recommend these glitter eyeliners. I think they are excellent quality and I love that they stay on all day and don't move off my lids. They are gorgeous and very suitable for those with touchy eyes.
You can get these liners at Sephora and also on the Urban Decay website.
