Sephora Waterproof Cream Liner ReviewWednesday, January 15, 2014
As a Christmas present to myself I bought some make-up from Sephora. It's actually the first time I made a purchase off Sephora.ca (didn't realize that Canadian orders are still shipped from the US.. why?!) and I actually don't often go to Sephora. I get the hype now though, I do. haha Anyway, this little cream liner was on sale and I feel in love with the colour.
ELECTRIC BLUE, BABY.
The rest of my face has on:
Kiehl's BB cream 'Fair'
Make-up Geek 'Beaches and Cream' shadow
Ardell self-adhesive lashes 1205
Ben Nye natural loose powder
La Femme blush in peach
La Femme brow pencil in 'taupe'
Rimmel khol liner in midnight blue
Kryolan highlight from V1 palette
Cuicu eyeshadow in 10
Lipstick ... a mixture of NYX paris and a Glossybox pink
I used Urban Decay's potion primer and Cover fx's concealer (e0) as a base. I wore this the night of a creative shoot at my school where there were at least 15 girls in a small room rushing to put make-up on. It was HOT. The liner on top stayed on the whole night whereas the bottom started to smudge. Didn't notice till the end of the night though. I also didn't apply primer on the bottom as I was in a rush. Ooops!
Colour: The colours is GORGEOUS! For whatever reason I'm very attracted to electric blues of purples. I would never have thought of wearing blue though but I decided to do something I wouldn't normally do. I love how it turned out. People told me they though they colour was gorgeous, I can only imagine how beautiful this would look on some brown eyes. It'd really make them pop!
Texture: It's what it says it is, a nice, soft, creamy texture that doesn't dry out too fast so you can play around with it before setting it. I DO recommend setting it with powder afterwards, I don't see it lasting too long without.
Would I repurchase? I may if it's on sale or there is another neat colour. It's not my HG cream liner (MUFE) but I do think it's a good purchase. I like the texture and that it doesn't instantly dry so I can work with it a bit. The colour is beautiful and has good pigmentation. Lasts a fairly good amount of time on but with primer.
I bought it on Sephora on sale for $6 so I don't know if that means it's discontinued or just not in stock as it's not listed on the page anymore. Here's the link!
