SEPHORA 12 hr Contour Pencil 26 Suede Shoes Review & Swatches


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.

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.

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.
