Holy Grail Eyeshadow/Eyeliner Pencil? Hell Yes. Review/Swatches: Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner in Taupe & Dark Taupe Shimmer.

These two eyeliners have been popping up on and off on the blog here for a while.  I'm finnally getting around to putting up a proper review.  So here it is.  Right off the bat..I'm going to let you know.  I love these, and I want more!

First: What Sephora says: "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." (source)

These are amazing!  They can be used as eyeshadow (as I've been using the taupe) or as eyeliner.  They're touted as lasting all day, and without a primer I can honestly say that I've gotten at least 9 hours of wear with these.  They're a good base, good as eyeliner, and even last on the waterline.  They are jumbo, but they're not self sharpening.  So if you need a jumbo sharpener to use with these.  The colors are obviously very pigmented, and shimmery (but not over the top shimmery).  Their waterproof, but I found  that while it didnt last long on my waterline, it did survive the hot and sweaty summer we had.  You can also smudge these out if you work quickly.  Once it sets though, it sets.

At only $14 bucks a pop, they wont break the bank and will last you for a long time.  Do yourself a favor and grab one!  My collection of these has only just begun..
