SEPHORA Jumbo Crayon Liner 12 hr Waterproof (Rs 680/ 2.8 g), available across Sephora in Delhi/NCR
What it is:
A collection of jumbo eye pencils that can be used as eyeliners or blended out as eye shadows.
What it does:
These jumbo pencils create a range of effects, from bold lines and blended effects to thin, defined lines. Resistant to water, heat, and humidity, their creamy, high-pigment formulas apply smoothly. From deep blacks to rich and shimmery shades, each is formulated with exclusive waxes and pigments to assure maximum color intensity that stays put for 12-hours.
The SEPHORA Jumbo Crayon Liner 12 HR Wear Waterproof is a small and tiny Crayon Liner cum shadow stick that can fit comfortably in your palm or handbag. The cap needs to be pushed in a bit tightly so that it fits properly. The crayon ends are color coded and these are sharpenable crayons so you might end up wasting some product. I wish they were the twist up kinds, but anyway...
The shade #10 Green is a super bright shade of fresh green, like how a rain forest would look right after rains, and it has a golden sheen to it which glimmers when light falls on it. I can't tell you enough how much I love this shade of Green. It is so vibrant, so fresh, and totally unlike any green eye color I might have ever owned!!
The Crayon liner is super creamy to apply, it simply glides on your lids like a cake of butter on a hot pan, and provides rich , intense color coverage in a single swipe. The liner can only be smudged or blended within a few seconds after application, post which it sets. These are excellent for women who don't like to spend too much time on doing eye-makeup, just a couple of swipes to fill your lids in a shade of your choice (I think there are more than 20 shades available at Sephora!!), and gently blend the edges with a blending brush and you're done!! As simple as that..
The Crayon liner is not a good choice for color on the waterline because it tends to melt and fade because of its creamy consistency, and even on the upper lash line you can't draw thin lines since you can't get a super sharp tip even if you sharpen the crayon.
(Tip: In case you want to use the Crayon liner as a liner on the upper lashline, use a gel liner brush and take small amounts from the crayon and line closely along the upper lash line. Since the liner is quite creamy, this should not be tough!!)
The Crayon sets within a few seconds of application and stays on until you decide to take it off at the end of the day. It survives, heat, humidity and everything else ;)
Overall, I'm super impressed with the quality of these Jumbo Crayon Liners from Sephora and definitely going back soon for a few more shades (a basic black, a nude and maybe some Taupe and Blues!!). The shade range is amazing, and these apply smoothly without crumbling and stay on lids for long hours despite adverse climatic conditions. I can't rave enough about this except that these need to be sharpened, thereby leading to some product wastage. #10 Green is one of the most vibrant shades of green you will ever come across. On my medium skin, it pops up beautifully and opens up my eyes.
