Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Baked has been in my collection for a few months now, and with the festive season upon us I thought I’d give it a proper trial and see what it could do. In short, I like it!

As you can see in the photo above, it has a brush applicator which makes it great for precise application close to, or on, the lashes. You could even put it on over your eyeshadow without disrupting the shadow itself.

The reason I like this product is because of the way it looks at night. I love to create a smokey eye, then swipe this over the top of a very dark brown pencil liner.  It works really well along the top lash line. On the bottom lash line it tends to look like you’ve got a problem with fallout, or flaking mascara.

The eyeliner is in a clear base as you can see from the swatches below, and it looks fantastic when the gold glitter winks from behind black lashes. So lovely for Christmas parties.


There is zero fallout associated with this product, yet I find it really easy to remove at the end of the night.

Unfortunately, try as I might, I had a really hard time capturing the beauty and subtlety of this product in a photo. I guess it was always going to be hard to take a photo of a product that shifts with the light. You’ll just have to believe me when I say it looks so much better in real life!

Anyway, behold the average photos:

You can *just* see the glitter along the top lashes here.

Oh wow, it’s that girl from Little House on the Prairie.

Anyway, what this photo *does* demonstrate is that I’ve combined this glitter liner with a smokey eye (MAC Woodwinked and Bronze eyeshadows), dark pencil eyeliner (Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof in Cafe), some bronzer (Korres Monoi 01), blush (Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Bronze), and a dab of lipstick (Rouge Bunny Rouge ‘I Know What Lies Are For’). I’ve skipped the base entirely.

So anyway, you get the general idea. I hope. I bought mine from Ebay some months ago, and I notice that there’s one available here for around $14 including postage. There are lots of colours available, and if I ever cultivate an actual social life I might invest in a few more. You can see the full range at Urban Decay here. Each colour retails for USD $18.

    Ooh, I feel odd seeing you without your glasses on, like I’ve spied you in your undies or something! And your eye colour is so pretty. :-)

    I love the idea of glitter liners, but since I’m never outside the house past 7pm unless it’s for a walk around the block after dinner, it seems a bit pointless.

    @Dee LOL! Yes, I felt like the glitter was barely there in the pics, and the specs were just making things worse! In real life you can see it through the specs no problem. Yeah, I don’t have much of a night life either ;)

    I like the combination of the brown with the glitter, it looks very pretty and kind of matches the tones in your hair.
    I used to use these liners so much ages ago but not so much currently so this has definitely inspired me to get them out again.

  4. I’m such a sucker for glitter liners (or glitter anything really). The UD gold is a super pretty colour…

    @Meeta Thankyou! Yes, definitely give them a go. Great for holiday parties, and they would look so lovely on you!

  6. Dempeaux says:
