Stone

Sephora Stone Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep gray with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a smooth, waxy consistency that gave it a touch of creaminess without any wet-feel. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was easy to apply as it never tugged or dragged on my lower lash line. This shade lasted well for 10 hours on me before it started to thin slightly.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.04 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "pigmented" with "one stroke" application that is "waterproof" and lasts for "12 hours." I've been a long-time fan of the formula for its variety of shades that are typically pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable to apply, and easy to work with--they aren't too tough to remove nor do they take too long (or dry down too quickly) to dry. The matte shades tend to be the best, while the shimmery shades are good but can be semi-opaque at times. The glittery/sparkly shades have the most inconsistency, usually with respect to pigmentation. They tend to wear around 10 hours on me.

Midnight Blue

Sephora Midnight Blue Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a blackened navy blue with a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was fairly smooth, though I could tell it was a more glittery eyeliner, and didn’t drag or tug on my lower lash line when I tried to apply it in a fluid stroke. It stayed on well for 10 hours before fading/thinning noticeably.

Aloha

Sephora Aloha Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth, creamy, and had moderate slip and felt a touch wet initially, but it dried down fast enough that it didn’t feather or get into my fine lines. It wore well for 10 and a half hours on me before it started to thin noticeably.

Glitz Alright

Marc Jacobs Beauty Glitz Alright Glam Glitter Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($24.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warmer, brownish undertones and a glittery finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers (or, preferrably, applied in short, overlapping strokes). The texture was still smooth and creamy, but it just didn’t have the intensity and oomph of other shades. The wear was good, though, and came in at a solid 11 hours before it started to thin slightly.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.01 oz. - $2400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to wear for "12-hour[s]" with "amazing glide, waterproof wear" that stays movable for "15 seconds" before setting down. What distinguishes it from the other Highliners is the finish; it is supposed to be "glitter-packed" but still go on smoothly. All seven were very creamy and smooth, which made them comfortable to apply on the lash line or on the waterline (I couldn't find any warning that said to avoid the waterline, but those who have sensitive eyes will likely want to look toward the Matte Highliners). The pigmentation varied a bit from shade to shade, though most were buildable in practice or opaque when applied in short strokes rather than a single, fluid stroke. They wore well for 11 to 12 hours on me with little signs of wear (certainly wearable beyond 11/12 hours).

The biggest downside to the formula, generally, was that removing them 100% is difficult - there were always stray bits of glitter/sparkle leftover even after doing my best to remove! This is common with fine glitter, so not a total surprise, but I wanted to mention it!

Iced

Marc Jacobs Beauty Iced Glam Glitter Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($24.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a silvery white with cool undertones and a pearl finish with faint silver sparkle on top. It wasn’t very glittery (not “packed” with glitter), though. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and comfortable to apply as it didn’t tug or drag on my lash line. This shade stayed on well for 11 hours on me before starting to thin noticeably on me.

It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly creamy texture that skated across my skin fluidly and delivered opaque coverage in a single stroke.
