Urban Decay has released yet another 24/7 Glide on pencil in black: Black Velvet. I received mine in an Ipsy bag and I am seriously in love with it. While I like Perversion for how black it is, I am way into the whole matte smokey thing that Black Velvet has.
The texture of Black Velvet is a little more stiff than Perversion, but it goes on smoothly. This is a big thing for me- I can’t stand when pencils drag or tug on my lids. If they do, I don’t bother trying them again.
As you can see in the swatches, the finish is a different and Black Velvet has that “smoked out” feel, whereas Perversion has more of a “leather” finish vibe to it.
I did not experience any smudging or flaking with Black Velvet, and never have with Perversion either. Black Velvet sets, but there is enough time to smudge it out with a brush if you want.
Of Urban Decay’s three black pencil pencils, Zero, Perversion, and Black Velvet, the latter is my favorite! I will definitely buy a full-size pencil when I finish up the small one because I can see it becoming HG material!
What is your favorite black eyeliner? I usually prefer brown eyeliner, but Black Velvet is changing things! 🙂
