Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (Perversion) VS Color Studio Professional Eye Stylist

So, a few days back I went to a store in Islamabad looking for a new everyday use liner ( Yes, I have one for every occasion 😛 ). As I have been using Color Studio’s Graphique liquid eye liner earlier since it is pocket friendly and has a very good formula, I found out that it had been renewed into a better formula,container,brush and packaging.So, without a second thought, I purchased it.

The Color Studio eyeliner comes in a black cardboard packaging with a transparent plastic holder that holds the eyeliner in place inside.The eyeliner has a black cylindrical container with the name and product art printed on it. The plastic is of reasonable quality and 8 ml of product present in the container.

The Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner comes in a slim graphic art cardboard box. As one opens the box, a beautiful slim eyeliner that almost looks like a pen,slides out. The container is long and slim made up of good quality black plastic and contains 1.7ml of the product (Yeah! just this much in such a large container!)

* Contains 1.7ml of product.                * Contains 8ml of product

The Color Studio eye stylist has a twist open cap which becomes a holder for a precise brush applicator at the other end. As we take a closer look, the brush is made up of very fine and thin bristles which ensure precision and smooth finish.

On the other hand, the Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner has a major fallback when it comes to opening the cap as it is super confusing in figuring out which side is the cap and which one is the dip-container. The cap of this liquid liner also turns into a holder for a fine brush applicator at the very other side. If we compare this brush with the Color Studio one, it is fine and thin but to be honest, not as sharp and precise as that one!

Moving on to the formulas, the Color Studio eye stylist has a super impressive matt formula that dries out in seconds. The color is jet black and it does not flake or smudge during application, like at all! However, it does tighten the skin a bit due to the waterproof and matt properties.You can create such a beautiful sharp matt wing that its just unbelievable! This one can stay on for 24 hours and the best part about this liner is that its Ophthalmogically tested and its suitable for people who wear contact lenses.

 

Moving onto the other side, the Urban Decay 24/7 liquid eyeliner has a good liquid formula that is neither matt nor shiny, so its something in the middle.The color is black (not jet black) and it does not smudge or flake or even tighten the skin because not matt finish. This liner also creates an amazing sharp wing and gives an overall beautiful finish to the eye-makeup. It stays on for good 24 hours but when it is applied, it does take sometime to dry out.

* Neither matt not shiny.                  * Matt finish.

* Black in color.                               * Jet black in color.

* Smudge and flake proof.               * Smudge and flake proof.

* Long lasting.                                  * Long lasting.

* Does not tighten the skin.              * Tightens the skin.

 

So this was the comparison between these both gorgeous eyeliner but who wins the crown? Well, according to me, the Queen is definitely the “Color Studio Profession Eye Stylist”! For those who still disagree, here’s the BESTEST part : The Color Studio Eye Stylist is just for PKR450 whereas the Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner is for $18 which makes it PKR 2000! All this in such an amazing and affordable price, we think it’s a miracle!

 

P.S  You know I like our wing fine and sharp! 😉
