New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Urban Decay has released a new 24/7 eyeliner set with 6 liners in the .03 oz. size (full size is .04 oz.). The set says it has five "new" shades, though you will see from my swatch comparisons, that the shades aren't really new, just a smidge different from ones they have previously released. And when I say smidge, I mean nearly identical.

 

The set contains:

 

West-  dark brown pearl  (may as well be Corrupt)

Desperation- deep taupe-gray matte (no dupe that I could find)

Black Market- charcoal black satin (identical to Smoke)

Riot- smoky gray matte with violet and fuchsia micro-sparkle (a sparkly Empire)

Apathy- metallic olive green shimmer (may as well be Mildew)

Ink- deep navy blue satin (may as well be Binge)

Wow - wish someone did know a dupe for Desperation though! What a gorgeous color

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Don't have the set, but based on the swatches, maybe uzi, stash, or mushroom might work.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Uzi and mushroom are both metallic, and stash is green. UD has no other pencil in a matte medium grey. BUT Desperation is in the permanent line, so you can get that one without having to buy the set.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Desparation is in the permanent line, if you want to get it.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

I had no idea! Thanks, I just added it to my loves.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Wow, they are very close! Thanks for swatching them. I saw the new set and was looking for swatches to see what the new colors were. Now I'm not going to rush out to buy the set as I already have most of the similar colors!

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Thanks for swatching these! Turns out I have the dupes for all colors except Desperation (although Ink does look extra special).

 

By the way, while we are on the topic of UD's Glide-On Pencils, have anybody noticed a difference in quality (color payoff, staying power) between the shades? I swear by the longevity of Rockstar, Mildew and 1999, but Perversion and Binge crease, smudge and fade terribly on me.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

I also have dupes for most of these. I think they're running out of new colors to make lol.

 

I do think that there is a difference in quality between the liners. Perversion flakes into my eyes and makes them burn and itch whenever I apply it - I never had that problem with their other liners. Some last longer than others on me too.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Good to know that I am not the only one with this problem.

 

I was actually surprised that they don't have a light flesh tone eyeliner in their product line. I know they were all about bright and colorful shades not too long ago, but with the introduction of the Naked range I would imagine a beige eyeliner for lower waterline is next in line (no pun intended) to be added to their collection. When I was looking for one, UD was the first brand I turned to, but ended up with Smashbox Always Sharp liner.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

UD actually made a flesh toned liner called Midnight Cowboy, but it was only released in the limited edition 15th anniversary set.

If you are looking for less expensive alternatives, Rimmel has a Scandaleyes pencil in nude which is totally comparable in quality to the UD liners. NYX also has the new Wonder Pencil which comes in 3 nude shades, but it isn't a gel. Still a very nice product.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil is one of my HG's...lasts forever, doesn't smudge on my oily lids..much better than perversion

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

I think Rimmel ScandalEyes is such a popular product, that I couldn't find it anywhere, haha. Neither one of the drugstores nearby, nor Ulta had it in stock when I needed it. I will try to get it next time I see it.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

If you go earlier in the week (like Monday or Tuesday) after new shipments have replenished the inventory, you may have better luck.  But never on a Sunday, they are usually sold out by then (also because of the weekend).

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

I'm wondering if it has to do with the different finishes as to the reaction people have, perversion in particular, and the longevity of some over others.

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

While it can be disappointing that these aren't new colors as they're either identical or virtually so to already existing liners, it makes *me* really happy because it means if I ever decide to start collecting eyeliners like I tend to collect eyeshadow colors, I have less things to get!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

I know! I wish that I had known that I already owned dupes for 5 out of the 5 "new" liner colors. I wouldn't have bought the set at all if I had.

 

Hopefully this post is able to help others make the decision for themselves, instead of being blindly sucked-in to the promise of "new colors".

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

where did you purchase it from, i thought it comes out tomorrow?

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Thank you so, so much for posting this! I've been lusting after this so hard, and you made me feel SO much better - I can save my money now, I don't need this Smiley Happy

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Oh they're gorgeous! My favorite is Binge.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: New Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Eyeliner Set Swatches/Comparisons

Thank you so much for doing this! :hugs:

 

Also, is it just the lighting, or are West and Apathy sheerer, duller versions of their permanent line counterparts?
