I have always wanted to compare these two eye liner pencils. One is a high street inaccessible brand & the other is an affordable brand in India. But what do they have in common? The word "Glide Hyphen" in their names + they are both black.
So, let's begin.
Colorbar Blackout Vs Urban Decay Zero
Urban Decay Zero Vs Colorbar Blackout
Rubbing Test- I left the swatches to dry for a few minutes before rubbing them with a finger.....
Blackness ~ As you can see, Blackout is blacker and more pigmented than Zero.
Smoothness ~ Blackout is smoother. In the swatch pic, Blackout is 1 swipe & Zero is 2-3 swipes.
Smudge test ~ Proof above.
Urban Decay Zero- $18.00 (approx. Rs.883.00). But I'm sure it's a little more than that in countries outside the US.
Colorbar Blackout- Rs.325.00.
The pencils should switch names:
- Urban Decay I-Glide Pencil.
- Colorbar 24/7 Glide-On Pencil.
