Urban Decay introduced a some products for spring: the 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils and the Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints ($24 each).
The 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils ($20 each) come in twelve shades: Sin (champagne shimmer), Lit (sunny bronze shimmer), Midnight Cowboy (beige with fine gold sparkle), Rehab (taupey brown sheen), Wasteland (dark brown sheen), Mercury (gunmetal grey sheen), Clinic (deep peacock green with fine green sparkle), Narc (mossy green sheen), Clash (bright electric blue with fine silver sparkle), Delinquent (deep jewel purple with fine purple sparkle), Morphine (iridescent lilac), and Barracuda (black with fine silver sparkle).
Being a big fan of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner I had to give them a whirl. In doing so, I was instantly sold. The shadow pencils are similar to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils (although much more expensive) in that they are thicker versions of the 24/7 eye-liners. They are easy to apply going on with a smooth, creamy application with no tugging. I found the pencils much easier to work with than M.A.C.’s shadesticks which have a tendency to dry out. Furthermore, the shadow pencils wore well with no creasing both with and without a base and blended easily. 
The Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints($24 each) come in seven shades: Bang (sheer coral red), Crush (sheer hot pink), Fetish (sheer mauve with fine pearl finish), Greedy (sheer blackberry), Indecent (sheer apricot with pearly gold shimmer), Quickie (sheer bubble-pop-electric pink), and Score (sheer pink lemonade with fine pearl finish).
I own a few of Stila’s Convertible Colors and Tarte’s Cheek Stain in dollface, so I wasn’t as sold on the Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints, but I ended up purchasing one in Crush. While of course, I loved the hue, the application was what got me. The Afterglow Glide-One Cheek Tints are similar in packaging to Stila but much easier to blend. super smooth and blending immediately. The Urban Decay Afterglow Cheek tints really do glide-on smoothly and are is the easiest cream blush to blend even when using just your fingers. The color is buildable, so the shades would certainly work on a variety of skin tones. As far as formula goes I found them to be more like Tarte’s cheek stains than Stila’s Convertible Color but less wet & sticky than Tarte’s initial application.

I’m thrilled with my purchases…Lit seems like something I will get a lot of use out of, while Morphine is an interesting an unique shade. I really don’t have anything like it and I see a lot of cool lilac eyeshadow looks in my future for spring. Crush is a pretty barbie pink blush that is really flattering, offering a nice change to my usual coral or baby pink blush.
