Sephora Banana Split (10) Contour Eye Pencil
Sephora Banana Split (10) Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora Banana Split (10) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “yellow.” It’s a bright, sunny yellow with a matte finish. It’s this matte finish that makes it hard to dupe–I only have one other matte yellow in my stash, which is MAC Primary Yellow, which I find is slightly warmer. The color payoff is good, even in a single stroke, and it’s buildable to mostly opaque color. The consistency is creamy, a little thicker compared to other shades in the formula, but it works well on the lash line as it doesn’t tug or pull and deposits good color from the get-go. It wore well for ten hours on me, which isn’t the full 12-hours that Sephora claims, but relative to other eyeliners, it is a nice, long-lasting shade.

Indulge Yourself (22) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “flashy green.” It’s a brightened, grassy green with a subtle, cool undertone but warmer, gold shimmer that brightens and warms it up, so it looks cool and warm at the same time. The finish is pearly–not too frosty but more sheen than a satin. In a one layer, it only had so-so color payoff, and then when layered, it had semi-opaque color coverage but was not an intense, richly pigmented product. It wore well, though, and lasted nine and a half hours when I tested it, and it didn’t tug or pull at the lash line when I applied it. Urban Decay Freak is much lighter. Urban Decay Graffiti would be most comparable. See comparison swatches.

  5. Banana Split looks so cool, but I doubt it’s one I would get much use from.

  6. Emily

    I really like the Sephora liners! I think that they are a great alternative to the UD ones.

    Didn’t think I’d like that yellow. Now I want it!

  8. Oh maaan I was so looking forward to seeing photos of you wearing it! I would LOVE to see how that banana yellow looks!

  9. I LOVE the banana split! Not only the adorably name, but that color, WOW!

  10. Haha “it is described as a ‘yellow’.”

    Dat yellow… O_O Wow! That’s quite impressive. I don’t wear enough looks that would coordinate to make that worth purchasing. However, for a special look, at $9, I might pick it up someday.

  12. I have been delighted with these Sephora pencils but the 2 colours here are just not for me. What I’m hoping, Christine, is that you can let us know if there is anything in this collection that is even close to the gorgeousness of the Bare Minerals 5 AM pencil that was LE and available for all of 25 minutes! I so would love to get something like that.

    • Seconding this review :) I’d love this yellow for a special look but otherwise…I need to stay strong & keep my money in my wallet. Lol. My eyeliner obsession does not need more encouragement.

    I never thought I’d be so crazy about a yellow eyeliner!

  14. That yellow is so pretty! But I wouldn’t know how to wear it. On the upper lash line perhaps?

  15. Zainab

    Doubt I’d use either one much, but I love these, particularly Banana Split. I’m surprised there are no dupes for it.

  16. WOW !

    Banana Split is beautiful . I see myself using it on my waterline/lower lashline .

    Any thoughts on how it wears on the waterline ?

  17. Banana Split is just gorgeous!!

  18. Wow! Banana Split is much more vivid than I expected!
