Peacock(vibrant teal sheen) is not only a gorgeous shade, but actually DOES stay on! This liner is incredibly soft and easy to use. It doesn't last particularly well on the waterline, but it's perfect for those occasions when you just don't have a chance to make sure your liner isn't migrating down your face. Based off of the description from Sephora, if you like the Smudge Pots this is basically the same thing, but in stick form.

While testing Peacock, it got me thinking about my fave Urban Decay liner - Covet. I use Covet for a lot of looks but have never swatched it to refer back to. Peacock reminded me of Covet, but once they were swatched side by side I saw they were completely different. Peacock is more of a blue, and Covet is more teal. What they DO have in common is that they're both beautiful shades!

Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is the stuff dreams are made of. Ever since I learned of my sensitivity to MAC Pearlglide liners I was in search of a dupe for Undercurrent. The closest I've found was Urban Decay Covet. I use it quite a bit for a color liner if you read through my FOTD or EOTD posts. If you adore shades such as this, it's imperative that you check it out!

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner retails for $20.00 and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil retails for $18.00. Both are available at Sephora and Ulta. You will get much more product from the Urban Decay (0.04) vs the Stila (0.01), but they are both excellent products.
