Hope all of you are enjoying your day! I am also enjoying shopping after a short break and today, I am here to share another eye makeup product from my latest haul, and it is getting my constant love these days. Sephora has a lot of hits and misses. I have tried few of Sephora makeup products and they have been quite impressive. And, this Crayon Jumbo 12HR Wear Waterproof Liner is one such impressive product which totally blew my senses with its amazing pigmentation and lasting power. I am so tempted to try all the shades from this range now! So, let’s talk about it in detail!
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. Featuring deep blacks and rich, shimmery shades, each is formulated with exclusive waxes and pigments to assure maximum color intensity that stays put for 12 hours.
$14 for 0.10 Oz, prices may vary across stores
My Experience with Sephora Collection 14 Violet Crayon Jumbo 12HR Wear Waterproof Liner:
Well, this is my first Jumbo Liner from Sephora and I am very impressed with its sturdy crayon pencil packaging, though I wish there were a sharpener with it considering it is a non-retractable liner that needs to be sharpened. I also noticed that the cap does not fit very tight on its tip which often creates mess in my purse. Over all, I find it quite hygienic and user friendly.
Coming over the shade and texture, I find the shade name, Violet, deceiving as it looks more royal blue with metallic sheen, and not potent violet. But, never mind! It is a gorgeous shade and does not look frosty. In fact, it looks quite pigmented on our eyes. It is intensely pigmented and soft which imparts almost full color with soft touch. I find it extremely smooth on my skin; I literally swipe it gently just once and it gives 100% color payoff on my oily lids, that too with no primer. Well, you can imagine how amazing it could be if used over a primer.
I never have to swipe it more than once as it always gives smooth royal blue metallic pigmentation with just one swipe. Amazing, huh! And, I totally swear by its 12 hour wear claim as it does survive more than 10 hours on my oily lids that too in summers, which is something to boast about! I have never seen such amazing lasting power with any drugstore or high end brand liner, at least not with the ones I own so far! It stayed on & on for good 10+ hours on my eyes with no primer – that too without smudging or even transferring a bit.
Yes gals, it glides like a soft butter on our eyes with no tugging or pulling only to dry up to a stubborn stain liner which won’t buzz even with vigorous massaging or water! We really need a good makeup remover at the end of the day to get rid of this stain liner. Pretty impressive, isn’t it? I really find it perfect when used as a liner but it works really well as an eyeshadow too. Though, we need to be pretty quick while blending it along the crease and might need a primer for the same as it tends to dry up quickly to become almost smudge proof and it becomes difficult to blend thereafter.
It is still fine with me since it gives crease free, smooth finish, nevertheless! Honestly, I was in two minds while trying this liner, but now I am fully determined to get all shades of this Jumbo Liner range by Sephora. It is so soft and hence, just perfect for my sensitive eyes and look at its intense pigmentation plus staying power! It is truly a winner in every aspect — from quality to price to performance.
I would say just get it! I am running to the store to get more shades from this range. I need not get this shade anytime soon, but other shades are definitely coming home with me.
