SEPHORA Jumbo Crayon Liner 12 Hr Waterproof (Rs 680./ 2.8 g), available at Sephora
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.
The shade #8 GOLD is a bright metallic Gold with high shine.Gold is a must have shade in my opinion and despite the fact that I have enough Gold eyeshadows already, I couldn't help but pick up this one because I know I am going to use it often.
The Crayon liner is super creamy to apply, it simply glides on your lids like a cake of butter 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 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.
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. (I reviewed another shade from the range #10 Green HERE)
Overall, I'm very impressed with the quality of these Jumbo Crayon Liners from Sephora. 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. #8 Gold is a beautiful metallic Gold that works well on warm Indian skin and is a must have from the range even if you use eyeshadows sparingly.
