Rave Review - NYX Slide on Pencil in 'Brown Perfection' and Comparison with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencils

Lately I have been really enjoying wearing long lasting eyeliners and all the other eye liners in my stash have gotten neglected.. I am talking about NYX Slide on Pencil in 'Brown Perfection' and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in 'Perversion', which I love to apply on my lower waterline and lash line as I will not need to worry about them running down or fading away ..As much I love wearing them, I hate removing them by the end of the day :( , but boy, its sure worth it ..NYX Slide on Pencil in 'Brown Perfection' is a rich chocolate brown shade while Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in 'Perversion' is a jet black.  Lets see the good and the bad of these pencils ..

The Good
  • Highly pigmented
  • Creamy n smooth texture - they slide on easily
  • Smudgeproof and Waterproof 
  • Really long lasting- This lasts until I take it off
  • Very Affordable
  • Available in lots of colors

The Bad 
  • Not easily available in Australia 
  • Difficult to remove, you need a good oil based eye makeup remover

The Comparison with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils
  • Both are crazy pigmented
  • Both are creamy and glide and slide on the eye awesomely 
  • Both are waterproof and smudgeproof
  • Both are really long lasting, Urban Decay lasts better on the waterline, but on the lashline both fair same
  • NYX is defintely way cheaper as compared to the Urban Decay pencils (NYX - 8 US$ and UD - 18 US$)
  • Both have a good range of colors to choose from 
The Price
11.95 AUD (at Crush Cosmetics)

Where to buy
Cherry Culture, Crush Cosmetics, ebay

Overall, I think these NYX pencils are a fab product and if you have been wanting to try out the Urban Decay pencils, but have restrained for the cost, I would recommend you try out the NYX Slide on Pencils. I am really looking forward to trying out the NYX in Black next..


  1. Luks gud :) luved ur snaps Saumya :)

  2. Really? I located these in a few Indian online stores! Shall check them out. How have you been Saumya?

    1. I am doing good Nivedita ..what about you ? ya should def give them a go ..esp with the price factor it doesn't hurt :) , you should check out Karen's MBB blog for color comparisons

  3. I do love both brands...Nyx is fabulous for the price but somehow, Urban Decay always has my heart!

    I do have a tendency to go for highly pigmented, really deep colours! Love a good coloured pencil but I tend to use black more often than any other shade!

    Love the UD pencils but I wish they weren't so hard to find in Aust.

    1. I do love both brands too ..n I agree NYS is fab for the price and gives us a lot of variety too ..I wish NYX and UD both were easily available to us ..

  4. Great post! I have a couple of the slide on pencils and loove them... sunrise blue is such a pretty colour you have to try out! I also have green papaya and the sparkly black but it's probably not as nice as the jet black one! I want the brown one now, though. Thanks for the comparison :)

    1. Thanks Ashii :) I really wanna try the blue now .. I am anyways a big fan of blue eye pencils :) .. The blue and the jet black now on my list :)Do you have these swatched on ur blog ?
