How was everyone’s holiday weekend? Good thanksgiving? Anyone indulge in some shopping either on Friday or today?
Today we’ll be talking about one of the other purchases I made during Sephora’s VIB sale. Last week I went over my Sephora Favorites Extravagant Eyes set, today we’ll be checking out the Sephora Favorites Walk the Line set which is available at the Sephora locations within JC Penny.
This is the set I was most excited about, its eyeliner and I am ALL about eyeliner. I make it a point to hunt down this set every year and when I didn’t see it pop up on the Sephora website, I worried that it was cut from the team. But good ol’ JCP Sephoras came to the rescue when I spotted this as one of the JCP Exclusive sets.
This year’s set runs for $30 and includes 2 full sized eyeliners, 3 deluxe sample eyeliners, and a mini Lancome makeup Remover. The items in detail are:
- Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Black
- Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy (Full Size)
- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper
- Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil in Black Lace
- NARS Kohliner in Minorque (Full Size)
- Lancome Bi Facil Makeup Remover
The price point of the Nars pencil ($25) and the Urban Decay Glitter Liner ($20) alone already put this set at $45.
Personally, I’m kind of bummed that there are two repeats between this set and the Extravagant Eyes one. Additionally, the Sephora Collection pencil was also in last year’s Walk The Line set, and while I totally understand the need to put their house brand out there, I’m a little less than excited to see it in this set. Maybe having their house liquid liner or pot liner would have been a nice alternative?
On the flip side, I am extremely excited to try the full size Nars pencil!
As you can see from the swatches above, a lot of these are DARK AF.
The Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Black is super creamy and soft. Its the type of eyeliner you reach for when you want to have a nice smudged eyeliner look.
The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper is a highly raved about product. Don’t be fooled by this swatch, its black, very black. The brush tip of this allows you to lay down your eyeliner with precision and conviction for killer wings. The only downside to this product in my eyes? The glossy finish. While this liner is dark, I dislike the shiny finish that catches the sun and downplays the black intensity. Usually when I use this liner, I set it with black eyeshadow to mattify the final look. Still, amazing eyeliner.
As said before, the Sephora Eyeliner is pretty nice for tight lining and an over all solid pencil.
The Nars Kohliner, ugh so excited. This one is creamy, easy to apply, and blacker than black. Its a retractable pencil, which I adore. I sometimes like to throw a eyeliner in my purse when I’m on the go and want something I won’t find useless when I realize I didn’t sharpen it prior to taking it with me. And lets not even entertain the ridiculous idea of carrying around a sharpener! So far I really am enjoying this pencil and find it to have great wear time, even on the waterline!
And of course, as said last time. The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner is cool for editorial stuff, but not my jam for a day to day.
I’ll probably end up giving away the Sephora and Urban Decay eyeliners to someone. I really don’t need more of those pencils and think they’ll live better lives in someone else’s makeup vanity vs the bottom of my “backup drawer”.
What do you think of this set? Did you grab this one? Tempted maybe? Let me know!
As always, thanks for reading!
