Sephora Chocolate Brown, Forest Green, Navy, Plum Shimmer Ultimate Gel Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches



Chocolate Brown Shimmer

Sephora Chocolate Brown Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($13.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage that was fairly even. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy without being too thick or too emollient. It lasted well for eight hours before thinning noticeably.

Formula Overview

$13.00/0.01 oz. – $1300.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” and “waterproof” with color that “wont smudge, flake, or crack” with “one-stroke application without skipping” that delivers “vibrant color.” Well, those are the kind of claims you’d expect for a top tier eyeliner formula, but these are definitely more like two strokes–or overlapping strokes–to get more semi-opaque to opaque color. Some shades layered better than others; the “glitter” finish was the worst-performing–sheerer and less readily built up.

The texture was barely creamy but on the stiffer side, particularly with some of the lighter mattes, which I noticed were more prone to snapping off at the tip. These don’t contain much product, which is consistent and typical for twist-up eyeliners, so that’s not ideal as there isn’t a whole lot of product to waste! They tended not to tug noticeably on my lower lash line, but they didn’t have as much as glide as more eyeliners have these days (which some may prefer!).

They wore decently; they were relatively waterproof and lasted between eight and nine hours on average. I didn’t have issues with smudging or flaking.

Sephora Forest Green Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Forest Green Shimmer

Sephora Forest Green Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($13.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark olive green with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium pigmentation, which was fairly buildable, but there was some underlying unevenness due to the slightly stiffer texture. It wore well for eight hours before thinning visibly.

Sephora Navy Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Navy Shimmer

Sephora Navy Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($13.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was lightly emollient, so it did not tug, but it deposited only semi-sheer coverage in one layer, so I had to build it up. The product was slightly uneven in coverage when built up, though hardly noticeable in practice. This shade stayed on decently for eight hours.

Sephora Plum Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Plum Shimmer

Sephora Plum Shimmer Ultimate Gel Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($13.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but the issue was the color layered unevenly, though that was never quite as apparent in practice as the swatch implied. The texture was lightly emollient, thin, and quick to set to a budge-proof finish. It lasted well for eight hours on me.
