Hello, everyone! I’ve been testing out the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 eyeliner set for about four days now, and I just wanted to share my thoughts. 🙂 This isn’t a full review by any means, but for the most part, I am enjoying this set a lot. That’s saying something, because I am not a big liner girl, since I usually play with my eyeshadow instead.
Anyway, the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 is one of their holiday sets for 2013. You get EIGHT 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, four of which are limited edition shades. Add to that a Grindhouse sharpener, which is celebrated in its own right. I haven’t sharpened anything with that yet, so thoughts on that are on hold.
But it’s a really pretty color, and I love that it has a pick thing that sort of deals with the eyeliner/product gunk build-up by near the blades.
Here are the initial swatches, from L-R: Roach, Twice Baked, Crave, Perversion, Mars, Deep End, Ultraviolet, and Tornado. These glide on so well and they pretty much stay put. I rubbed my finger over the colors, and there was very minimal transfer, mostly just the shimmer particles.
I didn’t think that these swatches really showed you the shade differences and range of the liners, so I took some more swatches that are more representative of what they really look like, i.e. supah gorgeous!
Beautiful! 🙂 Roach is a coppery color with a bit of shimmer. I’m a bit sad and icked out that it does sort of resemble a cockroach, even though that’s probably not what they meant by ‘roach.’ LOL. It also does sort of look like the burnt part of a roach, but I’m guessing people will associate it more with the bug. ANYWAY. It’s beautiful. I’ll try not to think of cockroaches when I put it on.
Twice Baked is a deeper, cooler brown with shimmer. Crave is a blackened brown that looks close to black. It’s deeper than most dark brown eyeliners that I’ve encountered. I think people would mistake it for a black. 🙂 Perversion needs no introduction! It’s a full-on matte black. Mars is a teal-ish blue green color.
Deep End is a turquoise/aqua shade. Ultraviolet is a blue violet shimmery shade that is so pretty but is also the patchiest and least opaque of them all. Tornado is predictably my kinda color. It’s a blackened purple that is also somewhat bright. I think this is a shadow from one of the Oz palettes that they turned into a liner.
I tried some of these on once I got them. Sorry in advance for the shiny face and obnoxious pores, lol. Tornado on the upper lashline:

Also, I got bangs and a haircut! 🙂 They look yucky in the last photo because I had just rolled out of bed.
Some general thoughts: I think that $20 for a liner is absurd, even though Perversion is so good that you can say ‘bye’ to all your other black pencil liners now. I talked myself into getting this set because it’s such a great value, overall. There are 8 liners—all of which I actually like—and a sharpener for slim and thick pencils. And it retails for just about a dollar under the price of three pencils—$59. I mean, seriously.
Also, these liners are so good that if there is a particular color you don’t like, it’s totally acceptable to gift it to a friend. S/he will probably glomp (jump/tackle/hug) you, even. They’re ah-mah-zing, so get them when you can!
