See what looks they created and get inspired, ahead.
Samantha, Assistant EditorI literally never wear eyeliner, let alone bright purple eyeliner. Add a graphic design into the mix, and I’m simply as far away from my comfort zone as humanly possible. So you could say I was pleasantly surprised by my full-blown obsession with this look I created using the Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Liner in Shock. The pencil was crazy creamy and almost felt like I was using a crayon. Plus, it dried down instantly, and the color made my eyes pop in a way that a black liner could never. While this look is for sure extra AF and different than my everyday beat, it’s really upped the ante on my makeup game.

Bold blue eyeliner is out of my comfort zone — the most I’ll do is a little pop on the lower lash line and then call it a day. That’s why I was a bit apprehensive when it came to using just the Wired 24/7 Liner in Vivid all over my lash line and lid. The first thing I noticed about this pencil was that even though it was neon-level bright, it actually complemented my olive skin rather well. I was also really pleased with the consistency and pigmentation of it. Like the other 24/7 liners, Vivid was creamy, easy to draw crisply (or blend out) and was as long lasting as its name suggests. After receiving endless compliments from my coworkers (thanks, guys!), I think I’ll try it again!
