Sephora Canary Diamond Eyeliner

Sephora Diamond EyelinerSephora Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a range that features black-based eyeliners with “ultra-reflective pearls” that are layered on top of a deep black. There are six shades in the range. It is a twist-up, very creamy, soft eyeliner that glides across the skin effortlessly and takes about thirty seconds to set. The wear ranged from eight to nine hours on the lower lash line for me.

Sephora Canary Diamond EyelinerSephora Canary Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a blackened brown base with flecks of olive gold pearl and micro-sparkle. It had good color payoff in a single stroke, and the creamy consistency made it apply and layer well with no skipping or patchiness. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Black Line (P, $15.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Cushion Cut Diamond EyelinerSephora Cushion Cut Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a cool-toned black base with lighter silver sparkle and a soft sheen. It had nice color payoff in one pass, while the texture was creamy, I could feel a little bit of the sparkle as I glided the pencil across the lash line. It lasted for eight and a half hours with a few bits of fall out. Urban Decay Oil Slick (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Black Market (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Uzi (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Black Swan (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Wet Road (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Noir Enigmatique (944) (P, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Dark Spark (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

Stila Triggerfish (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Starry Sky (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop XOXO (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Phat Rock Diamond EyelinerSephora Phat Rock Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a blackened purple with lighter, violet purple pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, while the creaminess of the pencil enabled it to layer well without becoming patchy or too thick. The color lasted for eight hours before noticeably thinning. Tom Ford Beauty Aurora (Shade) (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Supernova (LE, $27.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Night Bird (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Dragon Smoke (LE, $22.00) is more muted (90% similar).

Sephora Bling Bling Diamond EyelinerSephora Bling Bling Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a blackened plum with lighter pinky-plum pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which I was able to get to nearly opaque coverage, though it was always just shy of truly opaque coverage. On me, this shade wore well for eight and a half hours. Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boys & Berry (LE, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

Tarina Tarantino Ultraviolet (DC, $15.00) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Swagga Diamond EyelinerSephora Swagga Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a blackened red with lighter, warm red pearl and micro-sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a creamy, more emollient texture that seemed thinner and less intense compared to the other shades, so it was never fully opaque. The color started to thin on the lash line after eight hours.

Sephora Iced Out Diamond EyelinerSephora Iced Out Diamond Eyeliner ($14.00 for 0.0176 oz.) is a blackened navy blue with lighter blue shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, which was a little uneven, but it was buildable to opaque coverage. This shade lasted well for eight hours before thinning. Urban Decay Goddess (PiP, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Sephora Midnight Blue (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

How do you feel these showed up from kinda far away? I’ve used similar liners that lost their effect in real life, but these seem to have a decent colouration to them.

Cushion Cut is really the only one that looks more black than anything else, but it does have a stronger sheen. The others have enough of the colored shimmer that they don’t just look like black eyeliners. Bling Bling is warm enough (at least on me) that it looks like a dark plum than a black eyeliner.

Canary is beautiful! And I have to say, I kind of love the names of these (except for Swagga, that one is trying a little too hard)!

Ooooohhhh, these look great! So many glitter eyeliners do not have enough glitter in them to read sparkly, but these are super glittery!

They are! 🙂 I liked how it wasn’t super glittery either – a lot of finer pearl (easier to wear!) to amplify the base.

OMG, CANARY!!!! I’m a total sucker for that blackened olive bronze color, LOVE the sparkles galore (adds 3 more hours of sleep to my eyes) , it will be in next Sephora order for sure!! I’m running low on eye makeup remover, so it will be soon. I hope (pray) it holds up on my oily lids, and if not, maybe it’ll give me a sexy, bedroom-eyes smudge, and not raccoon eyes. If that works out, Cushion Cut is next on the hit list. I like how the sparkles make it a softer black not so harsh-looking. Are these new?? How did I miss them?

What I like about these a bit more than the MAC ones is that they use finer shimmer to get the majority of the color, so I find them easier to wear if my eyes are watery!

I usually don’t go crazy for glitter liners because they can irritate the heck out of my eyes, but I’ve been having very good luck with Sephora Contour Pencil in Fairytale. So now I am seriously looking forward to getting Canary and Swaga! I love that neither is an everyday, common shade, plus they both look look they’d be great for my eye color!

These might work! I find these use finer shimmer/sparkle overall than other shimmer+black eyeliners on the market.

I picked up Cushion Cut and Canary around the holidays when they were first released, and I really liked them! They added a little extra sparkle to my smoky holiday party looks without being over the top. I love the look of the others, as well, so eventually they’ll find their way to my cart, I’m sure.

I really love these, but one thing that bothers me is how much the Sephora brand has raised in price. $5 more gets me a UD 24/7. It’s just not enough of a savings margin to make me feel like I’m being at all friendly to my budget.

Just love Canary and Iced Out the best. This is a gorgeous collection and I don’t think there has not been a dupe for anything – so Swagga must be such an original colour. Great ratings for such a reasonable and affordable price.

Nice! Sephora Brand does it again! I like these. Easy way to pop in some excitement to a neutral look or to a colorful look 🙂

I love Canary! Been looking for an eyeshadow like that-black with gold shimmer/glitter. Maybe this could work if I smudge out the line for a smoky look?

I bet it could work if you smudged – these are pretty creamy, so they are totally amenable to being smudged if you work with them before the set.

Wow, I like all of these! I like how the glitter is even and strong but not garish. I’ll have to buy at least one in the next Sephora haul!

There are some interesting colors in this line! Canary is definitely my favorite, but Swagga is really a unique shade. Not sure how I’d wear it (I usually avoid red around the eyes) but I bet it would make the green in my eyes pop!

It’s cool that these reviewed well, and they look like a twist up! They seem like a slightly more shimmery version of some blackened colored Glimmersticks that Avon did. I actually somewhat recently used up an entire one of those–it was the only pencil I had near black in my daily bag that I didn’t have to sharpen! Of course, the Avon sounds cheaper out of the gate but it’s .01oz, so a bit smaller.

I like how Sephora’s fake “swatches” in their website product pictures make Canary look like a straight up yellow gold. Did they even try? Good thing I saw your post, or I would have completely skipped these based on those Sephora pictures! Now I’m really interested to see how Canary and Swagga (can’t take that name seriously!) look on me. Added to my ever-growing shopping list:)

Definitely picking up Canary, and maybe a few others. I wish I could do red shades on the eyes because Swagga is so pretty but I’ve never been able to make it work.

I bought these a while ago from Sephora. They have a nice consistency, but I think for the way I line my eyes, the glitter just isn’t there. I was thinking about tapping some matching glitter over them while the liner is still a little tacky (like Violet Voss) and then sealing it.

I think it’s more of a pearly shimmer than overt glitter, so if you want more glitter, you’re definitely right that these might not be it for you!

I think some are floating on the site, but I don’t keep track very well when it comes to the eyeliner (the photos are associated with the eyeshadow that I reviewed).

Swagga is the standout for me, bc the color is so unique and awesome, but whyyyy did it have to be the worst performer???? Ah, life. Smh. May pick it up anyway.
