Sephora 5th Avenue (03) Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora 5th Avenue (03) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “gray.” It’s a dark gray with subtle brown undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff in one layer, but it was very buildable in two layers to opaque color. It wore well for ten hours, and then was somewhat faded (thinner) after eleven hours of wear–it was still visible after the full twelve hours, but it was definitely not exactly as it looked when initially applied. Urban Decay Smoke is similar. bareMInerals 11PM has a slightly satin finish. Bobbi Brown Smoke is less warm-toned–cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Diving in Malaysia (18) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “black green.” It’s a deep, dark brown with flecks of olive sparkle. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, but it was buildable to more opaque color. It wore well for ten hours on me without fading, migrating, or smudging; but after twelve hours, it was noticeably thinner. Urban Decay Demolition has no shimmer. MAC Rich Experience is more matte. MAC Lord It Up is lighter, warmer. MAC Orpheus is lighter. See comparison swatches.

I really love these eyeliners, even though they don’t wear the full twelve hours that Sephora claims (wish they claimed something more reasonable!), as they do wear quite well for eight to ten hours, have great consistencies that aren’t too creamy, not too waxy, and come in a variety of shades.  Plus, they’re priced just right!
