Urban decay glitter liner – heavy metal glitter review!

I wasn’t initially going to purchase the urban decay glitter liner, I was actually looking for a glittery eyeshadow palette to mess around with but then suddenly the heavy metal glitter eyeliner popped up and since it was glittery and can be worn on the lids I decided to go with it!Urban decay glitter liner

Urban decay glitter liner Description

According to urban decay this glitter eyeliner is ‘the bad girl way’ to wear liner! It features an intense and sparkling gel which unlike other glittery products you don’t have to shake due to the glitter being infused in a gel.

The formula contains peach, carrot as well as cucumber extract, known to not only condition the skin but also smoothen and soften. This liner is suitable to wear on its own or over other eyeshadows. And even layer two shades together if you’re about theintense glam rock effect’!


The urban decay heavy metal glitter eyeliner comes in 12 colourful shades including browns, blues, pink, maroon, beige, silver, purple, and even iridescent!

I was stuck between selecting quite a few shades, mainly the dark ones as I haven’t experimented with the lighter ones just yet, but I am planning on pretty soon (don’t want to be missing out on something fun though) just not sure where to show off all those colours off to :)!

So I ended up grabbing the shade named ‘spandex’ which is a deep blue-black with iridescent glitter as well as the green one called ‘stage dive‘. I like the colour it’s certainly versatile, suitable for parties and even daily wear that’s if you want to add some intensity!

One thing which I did notice is that the shades are a little different to the ones displayed which was a little disappointing but other than that the colour option is a good size.Urban decay glitter liner


The urban decay heavy metal eyeliner features a brush applicator which I’m not a fan of as my hands aren’t too steady, basically I usually end up creating a mess rather than a line.

Anyways the brush is thin tipped and precise according to the brand which should make it easy to create fine glittery lines right? So how was it?

Well let’s say it did take a few swipes for me to achieve a satisfactory looking line, but I wouldn’t say it’s because of the applicator, it’s more about my experience.

The urban decay brush though I did find a little flimsy was not that bad. I feel like although the bristles were a little short it weren’t as firm as I had wanted it to be or expected.

But to be honest it’s quite good, I mean it gets the gel on nice and evenly and feels soft on the lids too.


The formula does feature small glitter crystals however unlike some glittery products the urban decay ones can’t be felt on the lids. I think this could be thanks to their plan of infusing the glitter into the gel giving the crystals a soft coating that isn’t felt on the skin.

The formula isn’t watery, it has just the right consistency. Just think gel, that’s how it is but with a tad bit of liquid so it is actually easy to get on and smooth.

I guess the peach, cucumber and carrot extract are an extra bonus apart from the smoothening and softening.


Usually glitter liners aren’t as long-lasting so to be honest I weren’t going to be expecting some strong stay power. So I was a little surprised when I only experienced minor problems such as a little fading towards the end, I’d say the fourth hour of wearing it.Urban decay glitter liner

The glitter was still visible after a good amount of time so I’d say it has a good lastage power too and since applying is smooth it shouldn’t be a problem to top up, only if I was good with brush applicators! Guess I’ll have to practice!

Overall I give this urban decay glitter eyeliner an 8/10! The shade range is great, lastage is good too as is the formula and application! If you would love to add that extra rock to your look then I guess this liner would be a great addition!

    nice one. makeup ain’t going anywhere that is for sure. I am a guy and I feel that if I learn this stuff I will be able to understand my girlfriend better. When I saw the heading I was like love is in the air. I am going to buy my girlfriend the urban decay liner. As a boyfriend, I can be very ignorant on things that will put her on cloud nine

    Having a glitter liner that can last as long as four hours is a thumbs up for Urban Decay. I see reasons you can score it as high as 8 out of 10 despite the difference in shades. I have seen my wife use some other products from Urban Decay and she always testifies of the quality of their formation. They deserve a thumbs up

    Thanks for this valuable information about Urban decay glitter liner. I think this is one of the best because The formula isn’t watery, so it won’t be dispersed, which is my constant problem. Also, the glitter is infused in a gel, so it won’t settle. And It has 12 colors which are precious. Now, I’m sure that I will definitely buy Urban decay glitter liner next time.

    Thank you so much for this review on the heavy metal Urban Decay glitter liner! With Valentine’s Day coming up, I was hoping to get a girl a gift and have been considering many different gift options from sweets to toys to makeup. The Urban Decay glitter liner definitely sounds like a potential option. I will look into it more and see if I should move forward with this gift option.

    Alright, alright, alright! I stumbled upon this review of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner on We Vegan Makeup, and I gotta say, glitter and makeup are two things that don’t usually make it into my everyday routine, but after reading this review, I’m intrigued.

    First of all, can we just talk about how cool it is that this product is vegan? As a guy who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, I appreciate companies that offer ethical and cruelty-free options. Kudos to Urban Decay for being one of those brands.

    But let’s get to the real question: does this glitter liner actually work? From the sounds of it, the answer is a resounding yes. The review mentions that the liner applies smoothly and stays put for hours. Plus, the glitter is apparently super pigmented, which means you won’t have to layer it on to get the full effect.

    Thanks for this review article!

    I am crazy about eyeliners and as I mentioned in my comments on your post on eyeliners, I can live without cheek makeup but not without eyeliners, lol. 

    However, I don’t haven’t tried glitter liners and I don’t think I would ever use one. But my youngest sister who just turned 19 a week ago will be so excited to have the urban decay heavy metal glitter liner. She likes eyeliners in shades of brown and maroon but I think she will look great with purple or pink.☺

    By the way, I see that you have given this product a rating of 8/10 which means it must really be a good product to try.

    Thank you for sharing your review of the urban decay heavy metal glitter liner.

    I love Urban Decay eye products! They are very glittery, and they add a touch of glam that reminds you of a rock star! If you like David Bowie or Lady Gaga, Urban Decay products will remind you of that era. I like your review of Urban Decay liner because I like the results and it’s perfect for holidays; like New Year’s Eve or Halloween!

    It offers a concise and informative review of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. It begins by highlighting the unique features of the product, such as the gel-based formula infused with glitter and the inclusion of peach, cucumber, and carrot extracts to condition and soften the skin. The author’s personal experience with the shades “Spandex” and “Stage Dive” adds authenticity to the review and helps readers understand the versatility of the product.
    The article provides an honest assessment of the brush applicator, acknowledging the author’s lack of steady hands but still recognizing the brush’s ability to apply the gel evenly. The discussion of the formula’s consistency and the absence of a gritty feel on the lids demonstrates the author’s attention to detail and genuine experience with the product.
    The review also addresses the product’s longevity, noting that while some fading occurs after several hours, the glitter remains visible. The author’s willingness to practice and improve their application technique with brush applicators shows their dedication to getting the most out of the pro
