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.
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.
