I love my new eyeliner. Finding the perfect eyeliner has not been easy for me.
Maybe I’m picky, but I think it is more that there are so many elements to creating the perfect eyelining experience. Every morning, I need to apply my eyeliner, so its a daily event and should be as easy as possible.
The eyeliner has to go on smooth and easy. There should not be any stickiness involved and it should last all day without the wearer having to worry about smearing or dissolving issues.
I used to use the Maybelline dark brown eyeliner in the red packaging for years and years, but was not always happy about how it went on dry – not very smooth.
Then, a few months ago, I ventured into my local Sephora and asked what their most popular crayon type of eyeliner was at the moment.
The sales associate directed me to the Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner. I tried a bit on my hand and it went on very soft and smooth. Very impressive. I decided to take home the “brown” color. Its a dark brown with the slightest bit of shimmer to it. I am finally completely happy with my eyeliner!! ( 🙂 )
Stocking up on my new favorite eyeliner
A few days ago, I went back to Sephora and purchased three more of these little babies.
I felt like I was storing up for a long winter. Its a good sign that I felt the need to stock up. If you start to irrationally worry that a product is going to be discontinued for some reason, you know you’ve found a keeper.
I now have one eyeliner at home, one in my workout bag, and one in my car. Although, I don’t think I need the one in my car, since this eyeliner really does not need any touch up during the day.
Before this eyeliner, I had tried Loreal, Almay, Cover Girl, and Maybelline. Really none of those brands even come close to comparing to this Sephora eyeliner and this product only costs $12. Over the years, I have always tried to find drugstore brand make-up that I will be happy with so that I can save money. Twelve dollars, in my opinion, is more than worth it for a solid eyeliner.
Side note: I mentioned the brand, Almay earlier- I will say that their make-up remover pads are the best on the market. This is another product I stock up on, because I don’t know what I would do without it.
Sephora Eyeliner colors

- Matte Brown Black
- Matte Charcoal
- Glitter Copper
- Glitter Purple
- Matte Moss
- Glitter Green
- Shimmer Navy

My Next Beauty Project: Finding a great creamy eyeshadow
Now I need to start my research for a creamy eyeshadow that won’t crease or flake off during the day. I’ll keep you posted with my findings.
