Sephora Eye Liner Test Drive


I went in to a Sephora over the weekend.
They had a display of the "best of the best" black eyeliners-
so I thought I'd give them an "in-store beauty test drive"....

This is how they ranked and who won, please note #1. is not the winner, but #2!

1. Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner - came off the easiest. Although I like the idea it did not pack the pigment punch of the other guys!

2. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Liner in Perversion- I own this already and can attest to the pigment punch this baby packs! After scrubbing my hand in Sephora with a tissue- this was the only eyeliner that stayed in place- they should've called it "Urban Decay Tattoo Eye Liner"! This stuff is awesome!

3. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour Pencil- though it's not technically an eye liner, it was there in the options so I gave it a whirl- didn't last past the tissue swipe, and didn't have too much pigment. But it might be a base color option perhaps. I would just use an eyeliner as a base.

4. Givenchy Kajal Eye Pencil- I thought, with a fancy name like Givenchy has, this would be the eye liner bomb, but Urban Decay beat Givenchy hands down!
The Givenchy was the darkest after the UD Perversion Pencil, but it was real shiny when it was applies- where the Urban Decay was more matte. And the Givenchy was wiped right off like the rest!

Our Sephora Beauty Test Drive Winner- for BEST, BLACKEST EYELINER was hands down:
the URBAN DECAY 24/7 Eye Liner in PERVERSION!

let me know what you think?
do you like the SEPHORA BEAUTY TEST DRIVE?

PS. Perversion is even darker than Smolder from MAC, which I've loved for years! The only other black which comes close is Feline from MAC, but it isn't in the permanent MAC collection.  I should've known who the winner was gonna be....

The Amazing Beauty Reviewer, Temptalia has an awesome review of black eyeliners- 

and I'm out like the eye remover was at Sephora... your kandee

Doesn't urban decay sponser you? Don't you "kinda" have to pick them? Kind of biased if you ask me....

Love Urban Decay! The Naked Pallet is by far my favorite, that I've found so far Atleast. Great review And I can't wait to get to Sephora to purchase this item! ;)

You should try stila's black eyeliner....it's a twist up but it's just as black as perversion and it will not come off at all I can't remember the name right now but it's the only black twist liner from stila!!

Hmm, see I have problems with UD liner. It disappears on the waterline in half an hour, and it migrate to the outer corner on the upper lash line. Looking for a permanent liner for the waterline.

Laura Mercier has a tight line activator that makes the caviar and cake liners water proof !! Amazing!!

Love your test drive blog!! Keep it up. It's nice to hear product reviews from someone who does makeup professionally. Plus, Sephora is so expensive!! Good to know what to buy without spending the cash and returning it. Also, even though it's part of the fun, sometimes you don't want to spend 3 hours shopping for one item.

Try stila's liner it stays on and lasts longer than any eyeliner I have ever seen and I worked at sephora for years so I've tried on and tested out lots on different people!! :)

Love UD Perversion but definitely try Too Faced Perfect Eyes waterproof liner in Perfect Black, its super bold black and kinda shiny, which isn't for everyone but I love it. And it LASTS. not to mention there's something about the silicone smudged on it that I love. I actually use it to kinda "clean up" the wing on my winged liner.

She has never said they sponser her. They may send her products to test, but all companies do that with all youtube and beauty bloggers.

Oh so excited to go on another Sephora trip. Luckily, we recently got one in our local mall. I used to have to drive 2hrs for tha good stuff. But now its only 15mins away! Which is bad for my bank account, but great for my face! Guess I'll have to pick up some extra shifts to pay for my habit. Lmao! Thanks Kandee, for being awesome and such an inspiration to all of us lovely ladies!
