Comparison review: Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil vs Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.

This is a comparison review of the Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil, and the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.  Many reviews have mentioned that the Milani eyeliner is a great inexpensive dupe, so I compared the two side by side.

I have the UD pencil in Zero, and the Milani pencil in black.

Price: Urban Decay - $18, Milani - $5.50

Swatches: As you can see from the swatches, the Milani eyeliner is a darker eyeliner

Pros of the Milani
  • Much cheaper to Urban Decay
  • More pigmented (although apparently UD has a more pigmented black eyeliner called Perversion)
Pros of the UD eyeliner:
  • The Milani eyeliner smudged slightly on my lower line, while the UD did not smudge at all
  • Creamier and easier to apply than the Milani, although the Milani is also very creamy
Notes:
  • Both eyeliners lasted on my top line the same.
  • The Milani eyeliner gets an A+ rating on Temptalia, while the UD eyeliner gets an A rating.
  • Milani products are not sold at all drugstores and may be harder to find

Conclusion: I'm still on a journey to find a cheap eyeliner that doesn't smudge on me! 

Hope you enjoyed this review!

  1. Thx for your review! I actually like the Milani one better not just because its cheaper because its more pigmented and its creamier, I always have a hard time applying the UD one.

  2. I just sent someone Milani liquid eyeliner because she said that she really liked it. The most liquid I can get with eyeliner is the eyeliner pens so I can't tell you how the Milani liquid eyeliner is. It is waterproof though.

    With that said, I recently bought a bunch of Milani baked blushes and am really liking them. Those have been compared with NARS but I'm not too convinced.

    oh never would have believed that anything Milani could be good.
    However, it's 100% sure neither of the above liners would be able to stay on my lids, upper or lower doesn't matter XD

  7. I really recommend the NYX Slide On Pencils - very creamy, waterproof, smudge proof, and CHEAP!

  9. I love love loooove UD pencils. I hate their prices but they seem to be the only liners that don't run on me. But who knew Milani's pencil could be so dark. Of course now I need to buy it. ;)

  10. I really like the Milani one. To keep it from smudging I let it set for abt 10 sec then top it off w/ e/s.  ^____^ Never tried the UD one before, but the MUFE one is good too, but the Miliani one goes on smoother for me.

  11. Thank you so much for this post. I think I would like to try the Liquif'eye before UD as UD is so much more expensive. I heard the Nyx Slide-On pencils are of similar quality as well!
