Eyeliner is definitely a daily go to for me, so I’m always excited when I come across a new eyeliner. I received the Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof Eyeliner in my August Play! by Sephora subscription box. (Sidenote: Is anybody subscribed to this box? If so, let me know your thoughts in the comments!)
I was excited to receive this eyeliner because I never venture out to colored eyeliners. I stick to jet black. Receiving this in my box gave me a reason to try something new and step outside of my eyeliner comfort zone. What better way to step outside of my comfort zone than with a shimmery purple eyeliner? Or was it? Let’s keep reading…
Okay, according to the packaging, Love Affair is a plum shade. Plum is one of my favorite colors which heightened my interest to try this product out. I do not know if I am sold on this eyeliner or not because when I applied it to my eyes, the color was not as rich as I thought it would be. It was no where near as vibrant on my eyes as it was on the back of my hand. On my eyes, it looked like a muted purple. I don’t know if my eyes had a little moisutrizer on them before I applied the eyeliner or what the deal was. What I do know is that it didn’t live up to my expectations.
I’ll probably give this eyeliner another try a few months down the road and see if I feel differently about it. As of right now, I’m glad this isn’t a product I spent my own money on just to be disappointed in the end.
Have you tried any of the Sephora Collection eyeliners? If so, what were your thoughts?
