URBAN DECAY Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

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.
 Tips:Heavy Metal can be worn alone, over Eyeshadows, or with other Glitter Liner shades. Try a deep shade as your main eye liner, and a light, bright shade as a highlight on the inner corners.

My UD’s one came with a set so I didn’t paid anything separately for these liners and NYX I picked few months back from Cherryculture and shipped to US address … however they are easily available in MUMBAI and BANGALORE and are priced at 375/- INR

Before writing all good things let me first tell you only 1 CON for both of these … if you are tired and don’t wanna remove your makeup the glitter spreads all around your eye area , although not a big thing coz glitters are meant for that right ??

Glitter eyeliners is not a new concept … they are very popular for quite some time , you can see on you tube how they can be used over your eyeliner to add extra oomph or can be used over your Mascara or just like plain eyeliners , I never intended to buy a glitter eyeliner for me , but when I purchased set of 4 UD eyeliners they came free and that is when I tried few looks and got hooked , m sooo much loving them that I picked 2 more from NYX….

And here are swatches for the same , above 2 are UD’s silver duo chrome and golden color and NYX one’s are green and bronze color , they are trasparent eyeliners with colored glitter in them , so its the glitter color and not the base which is considered while picking these … the best or say safest colors to buy are GOLD’s and SILVER’s or say BRONZE as they go very well with any eyeliner right ??

NYX Jade eyeliner applied over green pencil eyeliner

Now for the comparison part –

Availability – First things first UD’s are not available here and hard to purchase online whereas NYX are available in India ( Mumbai and Bangalore ) and can be easily purchased online as well

Texture and Quality – Both are equally good but I think the quality of glitter in NYX is more as compared to UD’s , so if you swipe them the glitters are more prominent whereas in UD you have to apply them 2 – 3 times to get desired or say required amount to show up

Brush – NYX brush is thicker and flexible as compared to UD’s … UD’s brush is very thin and a little stiff , both are synthetic fibres

Shades – NYX comes in 18 shades whereas UD’s only have 11 shades to choose from

Price and Size – NYX is $ 4 for .33 oz wheres UD is $ 18 for 25 oz …. guess who wins here ??

Packaging – NYX has this cute tassel on cap which is sooo adorable and UD’s are simple no fuss tubes … nothing important but just wanted to share

All in All NYX is a clear winner here as they are easy to grab and get hold as compared to UD’s and again the price factor … I would definitely pick NYX and now its time for you to tell me your preference ….

Have you tried any of these ?? Do you have any idea of other brands which have glitter eyeliners ?? Pls Share
