Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Swatches and Review

Monday, December 20, 2010

If you're a fan of Urban Deacy 24/7 eye pencils, Jackpot is a great set to pick up.  Retailing at $39USD, Jackpot contains 9 mini size (0.5g/0.02 US fl oz) and 1 full size (1.2g/0.04 oz) pencil.  This is also a good opportunity to try out the popular shades all in one shot.

 
 The pencils are house in a clear sturdy plastic package that's shown above.  

If you have never tried 24/7 pencils, you will be very happy with these as they are very easy to apply, soft, creamy, and have great wear time.  The colors are pigmented and intense with subtle shimmers that gives them another dimension. 
El Dorado is a golden color that looks very nice paired with a melon or beige/cream eyeshadow for a pop of color.
Ransom is a violet with bluish shimmer.  This looks like a duo chrome color that's very unique.
Binge is a navy blue with some shimmer.  It's not a dark blue so paired with taupe, this makes an interesting combination.
Rockstar is an eggplant with slight shimmer.
Gunmetal is a dark gray that's like its name..gunmetal.
Mildew is a deep green with light green shimmer.
Zero is black with no shimmer. It's your basic everyday go-to black liner in full size.
Electric is a bright aquamarine
Stash is a khaki with gold shimmer that's my all time favorite color from the 24/7 line.
Whiskey is a medium brown with no shimmer.

Overall, I do recommend picking up this set since it has a good range of colors from basic to subtle and bold colors.  I am a huge fan of the 24/7 pencils since they wear so well on the eyes without smudging or flaking.  Each of the shades add a pop of color in combination with neutral or even smokey eye combos.   For example, I would use Stash with beige/cream or taupe eyeshadows to compliment my brown eyes.  This set is also great for traveling since 9 full size pencils will take up a lot of space.  Each full size pencil alone costs $17USD and each mini-size is roughly half of the full size.  Do the math and you'll realize you're paying about $2.45USD for each mini-size pencil.  That's a steal if you ask me!

Thanks so much for the swatches! I hadnt seen anyone do that yet. What a great value. I love that it has the full size liner in it!

great post!... i love zero and whiskey, which came with my Naked palette, and these other shades looks so gorgeous too! the only thing i'm wondering is how fast these mini eyeliners are going to go because sharpening these bad boys really makes me feel like the product goes fast.

i find that the 24/7 liners don't smudge as much as the MUFE ones.
