Ulta 20% off coupon alert! valid until 7/23/11

So I got this coupon alert in my inbox today. For those interested, you can check out the link and print out the coupon here.

However, like with most of Ulta's coupons, they are not valid towards "Prestige" brand of cosmetics...

But if you are a Ulta club member, check out for your mailbox for a mailer coupon like this:

This mailer coupon actually allows you to get discounts off "Prestige" brands like Bare Esssentuals and Urban Decay.

Lately I have been inspired by blogger pal Miss Elain-Nio's blog post on eyeliners, I have my eyes set on  Urban Decay's 24/7 pencil liners...

I did a quick visit to my local Ulta store and tested some eyeliners that seems to be appealing to me, and so far I got:

Oil Slick is a nice shimmery gun metallic gray.
1999 is a lovely purplish pink (antique?) with loads of shimmers/sparkles. (high chances I will get this!)
Crash is a deeper plum purple.
Stash is a nice deep olive with shimmers.
Binge is the deepest blue they have in their liners. I would call it as an electric blue, maybe?

Which one should I get?

In terms of testing its waterproof/smudge-proof capabilities:

I rubbed my swatches under running water, and here's the results:

doing pretty good!

And with my Shu Uemura cleansing oil:

It's definitely coming off, and after a few rubs:

All clean!

So, back to the question, which one(s) should I get?

I would suggest either oil slick or 1999 for everyday look:), stash is good to have for a different look.
