Sephora Cappuccino, Cocoa, Flirting Game Contour Eye Pencils Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil
Sephora Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora Cappuccino Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “brown glitter.” It’s a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a gold sparkle and shimmer. It had decent color payoff in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two layers. It wore well for ten hours (shy of the 12-hours claimed, though) before thinning. Tarte Bronze (LE) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Brown(out) (54) (P, $25.00) is similar. Buxom Come Over (P, $17.00) is lighter. MAC Deliciously Rich (LE, $16.00) is a cream product. MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Orpheus (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sephora Cocoa Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “chocolate.” It’s a dark brown with warm, red undertones and a subtle bronze shimmer. It had good pigmentation in one pass with a soft, creamy consistency that wore well for ten hours before fading. Tarina Tarantino Puppeteer (P, $15.00) is very similar. Laura Mercier Espresso (P, $24.00) is more matte. Make Up For Ever #25L (P, $19.00) is more matte. Urban Decay Whiskey (P, $19.00) is more matte. Urban Decay Bourbon (P, $19.00) is similar. MAC Seasonally Spicy (LE, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sephora Flirting Game Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “taupe.” It’s a dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones while the gray-ish cast is quite noticeable, so it almost looks cool-toned on top. It had nice color payoff in a single stroke, and it glides on easily without tugging at the lash line as the consistency is lightly creamy (but not so creamy that it smudges or migrates). It wore well for ten and a half hours on me. Sephora Collection Welcome to My Loft (LE, $9.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Urban Decay Stray Dog (LE, $19.00) is slightly grayer. Urban Decay Underground (P, $19.00) is a touch browner but similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Flirting game has been on my list for a while. It looks like it has a lot of glitter in it… does it? Or is that just a metallic finish. I would want it for the water line so I wouldn’t want too much glitter.

I have a couple of the glittery ones from this line and use them on my waterline with no problems. I wear contacts too so that is something I worry about (I can’t use UD glitter pencils on my waterline).

These pencils are not meant to be used for the waterline. The pencils say, “do not put inside the eye.” I’m not sure if that’s for all of them as I haven’t looked at all of them individually but I looked at the ones I own which are 6 and they all say it. I tried one of them and while there was no stinging or anything, they made my eyes water and the color didn’t really stick on or stay on.

I LOVE Sephora’s contour pencils and have an ever-growing collection of them. It’s important to read the REALLY small print on the sides of these, though, because not all are waterline-safe. I wish they included that info, in LARGER print, on the website.

Cappuccino is gorgeous!! Good thing I saw your swatch – from the name and looks of it, I thought it would be dark brown, but it’s a bronze- brown gold will look great on my eyes, and only $10! I will definitely be getting it.

Well crap, I’m probably going to need all of these! I wear UD’s Stray Dog almost every day, so it will be nice to have Flirting Game as a backup since the UD was discontinued. If I’m not wearing it, I’m usually wearing UD Whiskey or UD Roach, so these colors are right up my alley – and cheaper too!

I have UD Bourbon, but I never wear it because of the sparkle in it – if I smudge it at all, there is silver glitter all over the place. Is Cocoa the same way, or is it a little more like shimmer than glitter?

Flirting Game is one of my favourites- my go to low key lower lash liner for neutral looks. It pulls a bit cooler and greyer on me but I am cool toned so it’s a good thing for me! I picked it up on holiday in Paris and after wearing it the next day went back and bought another 3 Sephora eye pencils. The shade range and quality is much better than any I can think of in the UK for the price.

Love these! I would never have known they existed without your review. Brown pencils are so useful and seem to be a gap in too many lines or set. As I said, love! Heading to Sephora (.com) to check these out now. thanks!!

Oh, I am really LOVING the look of Cappuccino and Flirting Game! Like Cocoa too, but worry that it might make me look tired and rather sleep deprived due to it having strong red tones.

These Sephora eye pencils are wonderful! I bought one on a whim, just to see how they fared against the other products I was using, and was so incredibly impressed. I think I bought Chocolate, I can’t really tell now though as there is less than 2 inches left of the pencil. I will definitely be repurchasing as many of these as possible. The color was strong, they stayed where they were supposed to be, and they lasted all day. At this price point, I was frankly shocked at the quality of the product. It was a nice surprise though! I really couldn’t say a bad word about any of this line that I have tried so far, so I would definitely encourage anyone to purchase one of these.

I quite love these eyeliners–beautiful shades, great quality and linear consistency–all at a very good price point.
Have already ordered Cocoa and Flirting Game.
