Woodstock Wings: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Woodstock

As you all know, I'm a big fan of bright colors and have been on the search for a pink eyeliner for quite some time.  There are purples, greens, and blues galore, but I've yet to find anyone that makes a bright pink.  Well, my search is over and you can imagine how ecstatic I was to find that Urban Decay's collection of 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliners included a shade of shimmery, hot pink called Woodstock.  I rushed to the nearest Sephora and made them sell me a pen before they even put them out on the floor.

Most people must think, hot pink eyeliner?!  It must take a madwoman to wear it during the day!  Well, maybe I'm on the slightly eccentric side, but I found a great way to wear it without looking over-the-top insane, in my opinion.  I just did a double-decker winged eyeliner look with black winged liner as a base and the hot pink liner as a highlight.

 In order to achieve this look, I started with a primed eye:

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

Next, I used black eyeliner to draw a medium-thick black line with a thin, exaggerated extension on the outer corner on my top lid:

Then, using Woodstock, I drew a hot pink arc from the inner corner of my upper lid to the tip of the outer corner black wing and filled it in.

For added drama, I lined my bottom lid with black pencil liner and layered black eyeshadow over it for a slight, smokey effect.

To finish, I cleaned up the black top liner a little and added mascara to my lashes.

See?  Not *too* crazy, right?  On top of looking pretty cool, this eyeliner has incredible staying power, won't come off until you force it off with waterproof eye makeup remover. (which still required some effort to remove)  The pigmentation is super-intense and the formula glides on smoothly.  I really liked the thin brush and long handle for very precise application.  I also got tons of compliments from strangers when I went out.  W00t w00t!  In a nutshell, I'd say that Woodstock is a keeper in my permanent color collection. :D

  5. Hi there! I've just discovered your blog today and I have to say that I absolutely LOVE your layout. It's so simple, yet fresh and so gentle on the eye! I feel like I'm on a cloud when I read your blog! I guess I'm going to start reading ALL of your posts now. :P

    Your makeup is GREAT! What an original way to play with a bright pink (fuschia?) color! You look stunning!

  6. Cool look!! Please share what you used on your lips too, they look amazing and are a perfect compliment to your look!

  7. @Jennifer: Thanks for your kind words, totally made my day! I want to keep the blog as simple as possible as not to distract from the actual content. I hate annoying ads, so I'm not in a hurry to clutter up my blog with them. :)

  8. @Laura: Thank you thank you! Here's the link for the tutorial on how to get my lip look.

    I've got the exact product listings too. Hope this helps! :)

  9. Excellent use of Woodstock, which I just about blew a gasket waiting to get my grubby little hands on. It is also my favorite shadow color.

    I do love these liners--I got Siren, as well, and it is beautiful.

    Definitely going to be checking out your blog from now on.

    Also, could you talk about your face makeup? Your skin looks amazing, and if it's not all genetic, I'd love to know what you do.

  10. @Agrona: Thanks! I've had my eye on Siren as well. Is it similar in hue to Sephora's Doe Eyed in Teal?

    I'm actually thinking about doing a post on skincare next, if you're interested. My face makeup consists of concealer and pressed powder applied with a kabuki brush. You can check out my foundation tutorial here:

    Hope that helps and thanks for stopping in on my l'il blog! :D
