Let me just start off by saying this isn't the first time I've bought a product because I saw it being used in a movie I really liked. In fact, I reviewed this MAC Prolongwear Lipstick which was used on Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games coronation scene. The only reason I bought is because it looked amazing on Jennifer and some weird gears in my head turned making me think if I bought that lipstick I'd look as amazing. This is no different for the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in El Dorado which was the eyeliner they used in The Hunger Game to create Cinna's signature gold eyeliner. I loved Cinna! When I read that he had gold eyeliner I thought it was amazing and then when I saw it on the big screen I thought it looked spectacular! So, again, the strange gears in my head turned and I thought well if Cinna looks spectacular in gold eyeliner I will too!
El Dorado is a metallic-gold liquid liner. It's not the most wearable of shades that I could have picked up but I've been getting so much wear out of it! I love the metallic sheen and how the gold color looks with my blue eyes. It doesn't really make then pop, but I just like the overall feel. It's that little ray of shine I get glimpses off when I'm walking somewhere and catch my reflection. It's a "makes-me-happy" eyeliner, let's just say, haha! It comes packaged in a typical liquid liner tube and I love that the tube reflects the liner color inside - makes it a lot easier to sort through in the hub-ub of liquid liners in similar packaging. Now I must say that the teensy and thin brush of the liner almost put me off. I thought it would make the line too thin and that'd I spend ages trying to build up the thickness if I wanted to. I didn't think this brush would cut it, but I was wrong! It's thin, but it's not flimsy. It has the perfect amount of bristles to give you control and create straight, rounded lines. The color comes off insanely pigmented and opaque in just one stroke. It's perfect for getting a thin line close to the lashes, but it's also, surprisingly, good at creating a bit of a thicker line if you put a little more pressure onto the brush when you sweep it across. You can of course layer to create even thicker lines. The opacity stays the same and it doesn't smear off any of the already placed liner.
The best part of this liner has to be the "24/7 Waterproof" claim. We look at 24/7 or 24 hours and just think ... okay, long lasting, but if you don't try and wipe off this eyeliner with a makeup remover, it won't budge, at all! I've fallen asleep with this liner on (a big beauty, no-no! I know) and woken up with a perfect line. Sure, it lost some of it's metallic shine, but oh my lanta, it was still there! It's also very waterproof! I've worn this to the pool and had no problems with smudging or running. The only way to get El Dorado to come off is by seriously rubbing at your eye (wouldn't suggest it, haha) or just wiping at it with a make up remover (it comes off cleanly that way!)
I would most certainly recommend this liner to you lovelies, especially as it seems we're all experiencing some unbearable heat this summer. The Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof liners come in a cast array of colors so there'll surely be a color in there for you! Next on my list is Perversion as I need a black liner that won't smudge or budge. Just take the direction of "shake-well before use" that you see on the tube seriously, and you've found your best new eyeliner friend for the summer!
What do you think of these Urban Decay liners? Something that tickles your fancy, or not so much?
