Sephora Black Lace Contour Eye Pencil
Sephora Black Lace Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “black.” Just as described, it’s a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good color in a single stroke, and it is buildable to opaque color. There are so, so many black eyeliners on the market. This is one of the darker ones, so it’s an intense version of black, more like the likes of these, but they really don’t differ much between each other. (My guess is that Clubbing Stilettos is the softer black in the range.)
Good Mood Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “jade.” It’s a darkened green-teal with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke but was buildable to mostly opaque color on the lash line. Make Up For Ever #4K is less shimmery. MAC Dark Envy is a gel version. Make Up For Ever #20L is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
I just bought these and tried them out yesterday, alongside the Ariel palette. They both have a really smooth, creamy consistency that glides on well and deposits a good amount of product in a single pass. I tried Black Lace on the lower lash line as well as the water line, and it didn’t last for more than a couple of hours on the water line, but it did wear well for just over eight hours. I started to see some shrinkage, so it looked like an even line of color, just thinner than before, after nine hours of wear. Good Mood wore similarly for a solid eight and a half hours of good wear and then diminished wear from that point forward.
