Sephora Snakeskin Dress (17) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “khaki.” It’s an olive green with a golden shimmer and pearly finish. It had so-so color payoff in a single pass, and it was buildable to semi-opaque color. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my lash line (which is good wear but is short of the 12-hour wear promised). Laura Mercier Sage (P, $24.00) is matte. Urban Decay Stash (P, $19.00) is browner. MAC Forever Green (P, $16.00) is very similar. bareMinerals 10AM (LE, $15.00) is browner, darker. See comparison swatches.

Sun Tan (08) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “copper.” It is a muted, copper bronze with flecks of gold shimmer and a metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single pass, and it layered well to fully opaque color. This shade lasted for almost ten hours on my lash line, which is longer than most eyeliners but not the 12-hours advertised. Urban Decay Scorch (P, $19.00) is slightly darker. MAC Going for Gold (LE, $16.00) is yellower. MAC Handforged (P, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

I really like Sephora’s eyeliners for their consistency and color payoff, even if they don’t wear the full 12-hours promised, because they are some of the longer-wearing eyeliners I have, period.

Christine, I have never seen that spectacular 5 A.M. liner from Bare Minerals except for here, at Temptalia. I am wondering if you noticed anything in Sephora’s lineup of these liners that comes even close to that colour. It was so stunning and, of course, it’s not available and, also of course, I am so wanting to be able to get something like it.

I nearly bought it today, but I’m glad I passed because when I compared the heavy swatch I did on my hand (so it would last til I got home), I saw that it’s basically a dead ringer for MAC Rosemary and Thyme (which is discontinued or maybe was LE but at least now, when I use it up, I know what to get to replace it). I love the Sephora pencils I have. Some wear better than others but all have been very good purchases.

I have the Snakeskin Dress eyeshadow -which I bought after reading about it here and love, so to me buying the eye pencil would be a little redundant. It’s so nice that Sephora has some quality eye makeup out right now!

They have an excellent quality and very affordable, i think #12 Cappuccino is very close to Laura Mercier kohl pencil in Black Gold and Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow
