Peacock Blue (50)

Sephora Peacock Blue (50) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage in one stroke, which could be built up to full coverage with a second layer or just doing shorter, more overlapping strokes during the initial application process.

The formula had enough glide that it didn’t tug on my lower lash line and could be smudged and blended out if desired, but it didn’t settle into fine lines as it set. It stayed on well for nine hours before thinning visibly, while there was around ~70% left 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.

Waterfall (47)

Sephora Waterfall (47) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, blue-based teal with a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which built up well to full coverage with a second layer.

The texture was smooth, lightly emollient with good glide, but it never felt too wet to work with, so it was blendable but still didn’t get into fine lines as it dried down. It wore well for 10 hours before fading a bit but was still visible (about ~70%) at the 12-hour mark.

Berry Sweet (58)

Sephora Berry Sweet (58) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.)
is a muted, medium red with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which I was able to build up to mostly opaque coverage by using shorter, more overlapping strokes.

The texture was smooth, more velvety and almost waxy compared to most shades, which felt a little creamier. There were signs of thinning after eight and a half hours, though it seemed to have about 60% remaining after 12 hours of wear.

Golden Hour (59)

Sephora Golden Hour (59) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium copper with strong, warm undertones and a soft, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was easily built up to full coverage with a second layer or by doing shorter, more overlapping strokes. The texture was smooth, more velvety with good glide, which helped it maneuver comfortably over my skin. This shade lasted well for nine hours before thinning a bit but was still visible (about ~70%) at the 12-hour mark.

Sunshine (63)

Sephora Sunshine (63) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, yellowy gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer.

For as sparkly as it was, I was impressed by how evenly it applied, and the texture itself felt a little softer and creamier compared to most in the range (which have more of a velvety glide). It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before thinning visibly, though there was still around 50% left after 12 hours of wear.

It’s so refreshing to find that Sephora has kept to its original standards on these eye pencils. They are all so good. My favourites are Waterfall and Golden Hour.

Yeah, I’m coming in a little bit late thanks to terrible reception here earlier. Anyway, I do really love Waterfall and Golden Hour out of this bunch! I wish that Berry Sweet was better in saturation and application. That would have made it a winning liner for me.

I’m so glad Sephora still makes very good pencils at a good price point. Though none of these are for me, they are all beautiful.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
