SEPHORA 12 hr Contour Pencil 26 Suede Shoes
Another stunner shade from SEPHORA’s in house brand and their range of – 12 hr contour pencil, absolutely in love with these and always find a reason to splurge. The best ones which are available here and the price were also good until recently when they increased it by 200/- INR. I guess the new policies in import of the makeup products could be the sole reason.
Price – 780 /- INR
Size – 0.04 oz
Available at SEPHORA India
Shade – # 26 Suede Shoes is described as Petrol Blue , to me it is not as bright as Petrol Blue would look , for me if you say “PETROL BLUE” , straightaway MAC Pearlglide intense eye liner PETROL BLUE comes to my mind , anyways , it is soft and muted greyish blue shade with enough black tones to it . There is very soft and fine pearly sheen to it and that’s why it’s not recommended to use on waterline, I have paired it with Giiorgio Armani eye liner no 4 Antique on my waterline and you can see the contrast easily.
Texture and Staying power – The texture of these pencils are soft and creamy and they glide pretty easily without tugging or pulling the delicate eye area. I get some 7 – 8 hrs of wear with this but it needs a good makeup remover to get all the traces of the colour which I think is decent as it is said to be a waterproof liner.
Pigmentation – The pigmentation for this pencil was good enough and it required 2 – 3 passes to get fully opaque coverage. I don’t find it a con as some shades needs more layering to get even coverage.
What I like about SEPHORA 12 hr Contour Pencil # 26 Suede Shoes:
- I would repeat myself again, the colours are so gorgeous and true to life.
- The pigmentation is good if not great.
- The staying power is great.
- The pencil comes sealed pack.
- The liner doesn’t fade unevenly or feather.
- It doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes.
What I don’t like about SEPHORA 12 hr Contour Pencil # 26 Suede Shoes:
- They are not easily available across India.
Ratings – 4.5/5
Recommendations – I adore these pencils a lot and like I said in my previous review , am soon going to pick more shades , the recent price hike is something which is stopping me and also most of the shades are out of stock here.
