Replacements for Discontinued Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliners

Urban Decay just announced a line-up of new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils shades--and, along with it, a number of discontinuations. They list recommended replacements--primarily from their new shades, of course--here; but many of these suggestions are hardly comparable.
Hey. Don't cry. I compared various swatches online to compile this list of better (and cheaper)! replacements for these soon-to-be-gone liners.
