Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Retrograde Review & Swatches

Most of us begin our journey of makeup with eyeliner. That too black liner. I remember using Lakme Insta Eyeliner, the pitch black one. Some of them move on to coloured liner pretty soon, and some conscious girls like me keep struggling throughout the years to move on from black.
I get tempted when girls flaunt blue, orange, green, purple eyeliners. Purple was a good choice of colour to begin with.
I had seen wonderful swatches of Urban Decay Retrograde Eyeliner. I found a way and arranged for the liner to reach me from overseas. This is the only problem of Urban Decay products. They are not available in India.
Packaging: Package is a cylindrical tube which is in the similar color as that of the eyeliner. The liner applicator handle is a little too long. It can be difficult if you don’t practice applying.
Color: Retrograde is a stunning purple shade leaning towards black which makes it a dark and sparkling purple.
Nature: The liner has shimmers and is medium-to-thick in consistency. The shimmers are purple in color too.
The first and single swipe is sufficient for the actual color to show up. The application of the line dries quickly enough.
Removal: The liner is waterproof and not too easy to remove. You have to wash your eyes thoroughly and remove everything yourself. Make sure not to hurt yourself. It isn’t too much of mess either. You might find some shimmers scattered. But everything is easily removed.
Staying Power: It stays for long hours. I have not let it for more than 10 hours though. 10 hours is really long enough for a person like me.
