My Boyfriend's Jeans (29)

Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans (29) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021)Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans (29) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones with a subtle, pearl shimmer throughout. The texture was smooth, creamy without being too wet, so it had more of a velvety glide that made it comfortable to use on the lash line. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for nine and a half hours and was still fairly visible after 12 hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$11.00/0.04 oz. - $275.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "ultra-pigmented," "waterproof," and have "12-hour" wear. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque to opaque in a single stroke with a smooth, creamy consistency that had good glide with a few shades being overly soft and more prone to breaking/mushing on the skin (so needed a lighter hand--is less prone to do so when lining the actual eye area rather than swatching on one's arm, though).

They were quick to dry down but had enough creaminess that they could be blended and smudged initially, if desired. While the ingredient lists seemed to differ between this formula and its predecessor (with the same name), the colors, textures, and wear times seemed to be similar. Most shades lasted between nine and 10 hours on me with the more glittery shades having the shortest wear times and the deeper matte shades having the longest wear times.

T-Rex (46)

Sephora T-Rex (46) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021)Sephora T-Rex (46) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, forest green with warmer, more olive undertones and cooler, emerald green pearl that gave it a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which built up beautifully to full coverage with a second layer or shorter, more overlapping strokes.

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and had a velvety glide that never tugged on my lash line during application. It wore nicely for 10 hours with light fading and was still visibly intact after 12 hours of wear (maybe 70% left).

Sephora Flirting Game (15) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021)Sephora Flirting Game (15) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium taupe with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was a little more emollient than other shades in the range but was bendable without taking too long to dry down. It lasted well for nine and a half hours before fading a bit, though there was still around 60% left after 12 hours of wear.

Love Affair (33)

Sephora Love Affair (33) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021)Sephora Love Affair (33) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and cooler purple and berry pearl throughout. The texture was very smooth and creamy to the point where it was more prone to breaking, so I preferred to keep it from being too sharp–I had less trouble with it breaking in practice after the initial, manufacturer-perfect tip broke off.

It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which wore well for 10 hours with minimal signs of wear. There was still around 70% visible after 12 hours of wear.

I have the “old” versions of both T-Rex and Flirting Game. Christine, I’m curious as to how these “new” ones measure up (I’m hoping it’s the same formula in different coloured “packaging or, if they did alter the formula, it’s for the better).

Very relieved to see that these are still some of the best eye pencil liners around! Especially since I have misplaced My Boyfriend’s Jeans and cannot find it anywhere. Wanted to use it yesterday to connect my upper outer crease work to my lower lashline, but newp.
I’ll also be grabbing up Flirting Game to use with ND Glam!

I can’t believe My Boyfriend’s Jeans is back! I used to love it 5-6 years ago! I hadn’t even moved it to US, I clearly remember me living in Europe, purchasing it from the local Sephora I used to get Benefit Brow Bar services, and being amazed that I actually like blue eyeliner.
If my memory doesn’t serve me wrong, it used to have less shimmer.
I can’t even remember if I still had it when I moved to US.

Excited to see that these reviewed well! I’ve only used the highliners for years – many other brands, like Urban Decay, make my eyes itch – so I need a replacement. Hoping these are it!

I have the older versions of My Boyfriend’s Jeans, T Rex, Flirting Game, did these feel or perform any differently?
Now I want Love Affair!

Mmm..I have the previous version of T-Rex and I love it. Also picked up cappuccino and cocoa on super sale at my local jcp sephora and have been loving those. Sephora’s house brand is hands-down my favorite for eyeliner. They go in my waterline, they last, they don’t mess with my contacts (UD’s create some weird film that glues my contacts to my eyes and they have to be put in solution for hours to get it off), and they’re not exorbitantly priced.

I was looking for reviews on too faced 36 hour eye liners as they were on sale yesterday but couldn’t find your reviews. Did you review them Christine. Just bought a few finally

It’s great to see that Sephora hasn’t messed with their perfect formulas for these eye pencils and they are as good as ever. Like Mariella above, Flirting Game and T Rex are my favourites.
It’s also good to review the dupe list on these and find that they have rated better than many other expensive HE brands too.

My all time favourites from Sephora were Diving in Malaysia (I always misread it as “Driving in Malaysia”, which I preferred…it was just a bit funny) and Snakeskin Dress and both of those were d/c’d long ago, which was an absolute shame. But Flirting Game and T-Rex, along with Cappuccino, are my must have pencil liners. When Cappuccino disappeared very suddenly from the Canadian Sephora site, I really was concerned about how I would ever replace it….but, thank goodness, it’s back!

These have been among my favourite liner pencils for years. I’ll have to go back through my old ones, and see whether they’re as metallic as these swatches. I love a good metallic pencil!

I have a few of the “old” Sephora eyeliners I think T-Rex is among them and I know My Boyfriend’s Jeans is. I think I have some others but I have to check.
I love the glorious quite complex looks of all of the reviewed pencils, they look like they could easily be three times the cost, so yay to Sephora for keeping such a good house brand.
One thing I miss since I moved to the countryside is going to Sephora just to see what’s new, to swatch a lot and talk to the sales people. I always had so much fun, doing that. But, fresh air, ocean view and a garden is still the winner for me, besides, with vacciantions moving slowly forward I have a Sephora about an hour and a half from where I live.
