Tarina Eye Tarantino Dream Hyperliners
Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliners

Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) were recently relaunched at Sephora. The Eye Dream Hyperliner formula are supposed to be waterproof, soft, smooth, richly pigmented, and provide good coverage. There are thirteen shades in total, and I received eight for review, which are included in this post. The shades in this post are: Crystal Gun (shimmering frosty white), Locket Book (medium brown with gold shimmer), Ultraviolet (metallic almost-black plum), Amethyst Android (royal purple with silver shimmer), Broken Doll (shimmering frosty light pink), Sparkling Ammunition (deep olive with gold shimmer), Kanzashi (turquoise with silver shimmer), and Glamorous Thief (rich sapphire with blue shimmer).

  • Crystal Gun is a bright, metallic-finished white. It has decent color payoff in one pass but not fully opaque.
  • Locket Book is a warm medium-dark brown with gold shimmer. It delivered semi-opaque coverage in a single pass.
  • Ultraviolet is an eggplant purple with soft purple shimmer with a slightly metallic finish. One pass won’t get you full color coverage (about two passes), but it doesn’t skip at all and was still fairly pigmented, given the trouble with purple eyeliners.
  • Amethyst Android is a blue-toned violet purple with a shimmered, metallic finish. Like Ultraviolet, it’s not quite opaque in one pass.
  • Broken Doll is a pale, warm-toned pink that looks almost champagne against my skin tone. The finish is fairly metallic, and this would be a good color to brighten the eyes without being too stark. It has decent color payoff in a single pass.
  • Sparkling Ammunition is a rich olive green with golden shimmer. In a single pass, it reads less green and more brown, but if applied in two or three passes, the green starts to come out.
  • Kanzashi is a bright blue with silver sparkle. It’s so-so in pigmentation in one pass. It is one of the most vibrant shades I tried.
  • Glamorous Thief is a medium-dark blue with soft blue shimmer. This shade was the most pigmented in a single go–nearly opaque.

I actually reviewed Glamorous Thief and Amethyst Android when these originally launched here, and I liked them then–and I really love the Eye Dream Hyperliners generally, after trying several shades for the past few weeks. I’ve been digging Locket Book and Sparkling Ammunition for a defined eye that’s not as stark as black. These are so, so smooth.   They have the same softness and smooth application as Urban Decay’s 24/7 Liners, actually, which wasn’t how I felt originally.  They deliver a fair amount of pigmentation in a single pass, though I’d probably use the same back-and-forth method I typically use with eyeliners for a really rich, opaque line of color. They hold up well without budging, fading, or smudging. I’ve worn them during a shower (the easiest and quickest way to test out “waterproof” claims–plus, humidity!) and had no issues there.

The eyeliners had a slight packaging re-do, and they look more streamlined than they were previously, and I do like that the entire length of the pencil is done in the shade’s color, rather than the pink it was before. Curiously, the eyeliners actually came down in price; they’re $15 a pop, compared to $17 when they debuted–which makes these a better deal than my favorite eyeliners by Urban Decay and Make Up For Ever. I definitely want to check out the other five shades in the range, like Spark of Envy, which you know is calling to me.

These are really good, and now that they're cheaper than mainstays Urban Decay 24/7 Liner and Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes, they're totally worth checking out next time you're at Sephora.

  1. Bellide

    Crystal Gun looks so sad :`-(
    lol

  2. GG

    So are they waterproof in your experience?

  3. Ashley Seme

    Has anyone tried these in the waterline? I have heard repeatedly how great UD’s 24/7 liners are in the waterline and while I do love those, they don’t perform well in my waterline for some reason. I am still on the hunt for something with staying power in the waterline…maybe these are it??! Thanks for the review, Christine! I will def be checking these out regardless!

  4. These look really pretty, especially Amythest Android.

  5. Audrey

    Was there a reason why you didn’t include dupes?

  6. I’m going to check these out the next time I go to Sephora. :)

  7. Melissa

    You should try the NYX Slide On.. Those are cheap and great, to me, just as good as the ones from Urban Decay. To bad they don’t have a lot of different browns, like UD.

    Thanks for reviewing these. I had my eye on them for the VIB sale, but wasn’t ready to commit until I saw your opinion.

  9. Alis

    I’m on the same page as you. So far the MUFE aqua liner in black is the best performing liner on my waterline though it’s still not perfect.

  10. K.B.

    Locket Book and Sparkling Ammunition are gorgeous! I can’t wait to check them out in person. Thank you for reviewing them, Christine! I rarely venture away from my preferred brands at Sephora, and because of your review, I’ll be checking out the other offerings by Tarina Tarantino as well.

  11. I want all of these, especially Ultra Violet, Amethyst, and Crystal Gun! You’re right, if they’re high quality and cheaper than my favorite shades from UD, I may just be tempted to switch.

  12. Saffy

    Ultraviolet, Ammunition and Broken Doll are gorgeous… I’ll have to check them out next time I’m in Sephora!

  13. Renee

    These look pretty nice. Amethyst Android looks like the pencil version of Parfait Amour.

  14. Katelyn

    Do these come in black?

  15. Jianing

    Ultraviolet I must get!

  16. jenny

    If they sold them in a value set, I’d buy them :)

  17. wow, these are so pretty! great photos. thank you =)

  18. Avatar of Cathy Angelcat47

    Ammunition and Ultraviolet are my kind of colors!!

  19. Avatar of Deb Deb

    Oooh, Ultraviolet is nice!

  20. Lara

    love them all!

  21. Katie

    What happened to the tip of crystal gun???

  22. Melissa

    I have this in Ultraviolet and I absolutely love it, it’s my favorite purple. I like these better than UD’s 24/7 pencils, I’m afraid! Sparkling Ammunition is gorgeous – I want it so badly!

  23. Avatar of Lisa Lisa

    Is sparkling ammunition similar to Urban Decay 24/7 in stash?

  24. Pretty! I may have to check some of the shades. How would you compare Sparkling Ammunition with UD Stash, Christine?

  25. Avatar of Marina Marina

    Christine! I want to get a bright one of these liners for summer and have been debating between Spark of Envy, the teal; Glamorous Thief, the blue; and Amethyst Android, the violet. Help! I’d be using them on the waterline most likely. I have blue eyes if that makes any difference.

  26. Avatar of Holly Holly

    I bought Tommy Jet and so far I’m loving it. I have been wanting colored eyeliners but I wasn’t sure what to get. I have brown eyes; what colors do you recommend Christine?
