Urban Decay

Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Description
+
All the glitz of glam rock without the spandex or bad hair. These arresting shades of glitter are suspended in a clear base and apply with a tiny, precise brush. Paint thin lines with the tip of the brush, or sweeping color with the side of the brush for dramatic, jewel-encrusted eyes. Once dry, they will not budge - the glitter won't fall to your cheeks or transfer to your makeout partner's face. Make sure you let each coat dry a bit before applying the next for perfect glitter distribution.

Pretty Good!

This eyeliner is pretty good. It has a nice thin brush, but you really have to build it up if you want a glittery look. I have the Midnight Cowboy, which is gold glitter, and it goes great with a smokey eye! It is a bit on the pricey side, but the overall quality of it is worth every penny. I would definitely recommend this!

love the shade

This liner was $20 at Ulta, I love how it looks on but you have to really build it up to get good payoff. I applied three coats. Spandex is a blusey-purple-green. I think it would look cool over a black or dark liquid liner. I was expecting better color payoff for the price. It dries fairly quick and does not flake. If you love glitter as much as me, I say get it

Meh

I dont care for this product, honestly. Baked was given to me by a friend and I use it every once in a while but its really nothing special. I would never pay full price for this because other brands make glitter with a clear base for half the price. This product disappointed me and I do not recommend it.

Honestly, it seems like all other glitter liners that I have tried. There's nothing aside from UD's name that would account for the price since the formula seems very similar to NYX, Wet n Wild, etc. The color, distortion, is nice because you can put it over the top of darker liners to add shimmer. I think I got this as part of a set, which offset the cost a bit, otherwise I would never have paid full price for it.

It's alright.

The product itself could be a lot better for the price you pay. I feel like the product isn't liquidy enough and I find myself really scooping the brush in, just to get a bit of the glitter. When you finally get the glitter, the color is beautiful and the staying power is quite nice. I just don't like the process of trying to get the product out.

Perfect!

I'd been looking for a good glitter liner for a while. I tried a few but this was the best one. I've used two shades (Glam Rock, Distortion) and they both rock. It stays all day long & doesn't flake at all!

This is one of my favorite glitter eye-liners. It applies way better than some of the other giller eye-liners that I've tried before. I don't know if it's just me, but when I apply it (it dosen't burn) it's always very cold! Other than that I think it's great.

Price Not Worth the Poor Glitter Pay-Off

The first product I bought from Urban Decay was one of their eyeshadow palettes, and I was so impressed I wanted to try their other products, such as Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. When I was able to get my hands on Midnight Cowboy, I really wanted to love it but ended up really disappointed.

From previous experiences with glitter liners I knew that the glitter was going to be sparsely distributed in the clear eyeliner gel and intended as as a layered accent over other makeup. But since this is higher-priced, I was expecting more glitter content out of it, and was surprised that it seemed to be less glittery than lower-priced glitter liners like NYX Liquid Crystal Liner. I tried applying layers of glitter on top of itself to see if I could intensify it, but it only ended up wiping away the previous layer. The one thing I did like about this liner is that it didn't sting my eyelids on application.

I am glad that I only received this from someone else and didn't have to pay the high retail price. I would have been much better off getting cosmetic-grade glitter and patting that onto to lip-gloss lined lids.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It stays all day, and doesnt smudge. I use it with pink eyeshadow and use it along my black eyeliner on the bottom. I think because of how well it works and stays I will be buying more colors!

Really Fun and Funky Liner

I love this product by Urban Decay. Stagedive is a bright, teal glitter liner. As one of you gals mentioned, the glitter is nicely suspended in the clear gel base. I love the liner brush as well, because its a thin brush that tapers at the end-so its guaranteed to provide precision when drawing lines. It does take a few swipes to build up the product and equally distribute the glitter on the lash line. If you're a perfectionist you can build the line up and get every speck of glitter in place, or be a little messy and carefree. I also like to pair Stagedive with a black liquid liner, for a funky fresh cat eye. I usually apply the cat eye liner on the outer third of my eye, and the glitter, on my inner eye or just layer it over a black cat eye on my top lash line, for a two toned effect. Believe it or not, the glitter liner looks great as is with some bold, black lashes- falsies or just your own! Great product and I wouldn't mind owning the whole collection!
