Glitter Eye Liners - MAC vs. Urban Decay

MAC Glitter Eye Liner
Cost: $16.50
- Comes in a clear tube with a thin liner brush. The bristle is very soft. The consistency is just about right, not too thick and not too light. The glitters are tiny, as described by MAC they are "micro-fine glitter." It stayed on pretty well and comes off easily with water/cleanser.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eye Liner
Cost: $18
- It also comes in a clear tube with a thin brush so you can see how much there's left of the glitters. The clear liquid gel that holds the glitters together is quite thick. It comes off a little bit more messy than MAC. I have to use eye makeup removal to remove all traces.

Overall, MAC is more suitable for every day look if you're looking for a little sparkle to your eyes but not too dramatic. UD is more vibrant and intense in colors but a little too much if you're going to wear it for a day look. The only downside to MAC is they mostly come in limited edition, whereas, you could get UD anytime at Sephora.

  1. I like MAC better from your swatches! :) To think I almost got the UD ones.

    Usually you don't put clams in the soup, but I think it tastes better... hehe~ That's my style of cooking that soup. :D

    I'm so full... eek~ I've been cooking since this morning.

  3. Yikes, im actually too scared to use glitter (unless it's shimmer lol) on my eye lids! However, judging from your swatches, the MAC looks more refined and more easier to wear :)

  5. hey thanks for visiting my blog! actually the one I just bought is indeed the extended relief one. The consistency is nice, quite refreshing and light. However I find its not as moisturizing as I would like. After it sinks in I find my skin feels a bit tight/dry still. I find Lancone Aqua Fusion works better for my skin. But I know some people love the Clinique, so it does depends on how dry your skin is. HTH :)

  30. hm, i've never ordered from them and i don't know anyone who has... but vanessa from nessasary makeup and anne from yummie bitez have bought their brushes in person... so it's definitely a legitimate company... but i don't know how they are about their shipping and customer service and all that...

  34. woot...why did I delete my own comment? LOL

    JieJie, how come your blog is not accessible anymore?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I didn't even know MAC carries glitter liners! I have the silver glitter from UD and I LOVE it cause I used it for a nightout look. I tried the Amuse glitter liners and since they're cheaper, they don't show up too well, so I have to pack it on. I recently purcahsed a NYX one that's really similar to MAC's Oxidate. I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for the review :)
