How are you doing today? I am sure you all must be excited and planning for the upcoming festive days. I am also really excited and can’t wait for the events. Before I start dreaming about my attires and jewellery, let me head back to my today’s obsession. As you all know, I am all head over heels with Sephora Collection liners, and recently bought few more shades from this range considering my trip & the festive season. This is the last but not least shade from this range in my stash, though I am planning to get few more shades soon. So let’s read more about Sephora Collection Staying Alive Waterproof Matte Colorful Shadow and Liner.
What it is:

My Experience with Sephora Collection Staying Alive Waterproof Matte Colorful Shadow and Liner:
The green crayon comes in sharpenable pencil packaging with a fitted cap, though the cap becomes loose after a while. Over all I find it quite price worthy, user friendly & travel friendly packaging. Talking about my gorgeous shade ‘Staying Alive’, it is described as peacock green which is true to its description. The moment I saw the shade, I already started dreaming of my Indian ethnic attires I could pair it with. 😛 Moreover it also complements my brown eyes and light skin tone so well that I feel like wearing it every single day. I paired it with my peacock green dress during my trip, and the outcome was really flattering considering I am an eye makeup beginner. *shy*
I am already bowled by the texture and finish of these liners, and this liner is no exception as it gives intensely matte peacock green finish on my eyes. It gives a perfect matte green color payoff with just one stroke while I need a second swipe to add a finishing touch. It has a really soft and smooth texture, yet the tip remains stiff enough to give me both thin as well as thick lines without messing up unlike Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencils. Yes gals, they are forgiving for my sensitive eyes as I don’t feel any irritation even if I use them on my waterline, or closer to waterline.
Considering it is a matte shade, I can easily use it on waterline for intense matte green eyes while I can pair it with any metallic, glittery or matte eye shadow for sizzling festive eye makeup look. It is so smooth that it glides effortlessly on my well primed eyelids while, at the same time, it is stiff enough to retain the shape. These properties result in more precise & fine lines to draw neat eye makeup. In fact it stays put for good hours on my undereye area even with no primer as well. I mean I usually do eye makeup in hurry and often forget to use a primer, but with this liner, I need not worry about using a primer as it gives brilliant finish and staying power anyway.
Believe me it does not smudge or even transfer on my eye area whenever I forget or skip the primer intentionally. Needless to say, this shade was my go-to liner throughout my trip after Marine. I am also looking forward to pair it with all my Indian ethnic dresses for upcoming festive events this time. I am impressed to see that once it sets on eyes, it does not smudge or transfer onto my oily skin for good 7-8 hours; it does tend to fade after 10+ hours, but it is fine with me. I just wish it came in a retractable pencil form and not in the sharpenable one as this one leads to wastage.
I am definitely getting this shade again & again, and I wholeheartedly recommend this gorgeous matte peacock green shade to everyone. It is a must-have shade for Indian festivals and parties. In fact it looks gorgeous with western attired too.
