Urban Decay has been known to release full-sizes in some of their previously new and exclusive shades, but the bad part is—there are no guarantees, and sometimes it can take a while. Most recently they’ve been really good about it, so I’m interested to see if any of these make the permanent collection lineup, because there are some great shades in here. But since we can’t count on it, don’t sleep on this set!
In terms of quality, these pencils meet my expectations of long-wear (all day without fading!), they glide on (literally) super smoothly, and the pigmentation is strong. There were two shades that I wish were a little stronger—most notably Riot, and Apathy, with Desperation just straddling the line (I cut it some slack since it was a lighter shade and matte). As I’ve grown accustomed to with this formula in other shades, these apply without skipping or tugging (yay!), and set in a few seconds for budge-proof, water-resistant wear.
My favorite shade in the set is Black Market, it really is like a pearly version of Zero like Urban Decay suggests! If you haven’t tried the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil formula yet, this is the perfect set for you to experiment with.

This is a good value, and a great holiday gift! Had Riot and Apathy had a little more pigmentation, this would have earned a perfect score. Not too shabby though!
