Product Review: Sephora’s Jumbo 12 Hour Eye Pencils

Sephora Jumbo Eye Pencils

I’ve long been a fan of large eye shadow pencils but had never tried Sephora’s version. Recently, I came across these lovelies on the Sephora site and decided to splurge on a few of them. Will they crease like crazy or stay smooth and colorful for a full 12 hours? Read more to find out!

These pencils are available in 28 different shades, from matte to frosty and glittery. I purchased shades Beige, Taupe and Mauve Shimmer. Each pencil cost $14. Take a look below.

I found these shadow sticks to be creamy and easy to apply/wear. They’re incredibly flexible as they can be used as a liner and blended out as a shadow. This summer, I’ve been wearing the Taupe shade a lot as a liner under my lower lashes. That is only possible if the formula is non smudging. Well guess what, IT IS!!!! Not only do these pencils stay put, they look beautiful all day so the claim that they wear for 12 hours has been absolutely true for me! These can be used alone or as a base under powder to provide more depth. No eyelid primer needed!!!

Besides getting a lot of wear as a liner, I also used each color on the lids. Here’s a look that I also have worn quite a bit this summer.

At $14 each, these are a great buy. You can get them at any Sephora store or on the website. Try them and tell me what you think!!
