Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner vs Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil

Price
Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliners (Deepest Black)
~$6 at CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil  (Zero)
$19 at urbandecay.com, Ulta, Sephora

Prestige definitely wins, I honestly think almost $20 is ridiculous for an eyeliner.

Color Variety
Urban Decay has 24 shades, a good mix of bright and dark colors
Prestige has 8, mostly dark colors

Urban Decay

Pigmentation and Application

Prestige is darker and both apply the same, without any dragging.

Waterproof?

Both stand up to water well, but Zero doesn’t smudge very much at all.

 

Personally, I prefer Prestige’s eyeliner over Zero.  It’s much cheaper, darker, and wears just as well.
