"These intense, long-lasting pencils feature a creamy, smudge-proof, and waterproof formula for a bold line of intense color in one stroke. The set includes 10 pencils including bestselling and exclusive limited-edition shades in three different finishes: glitter, matte, and shimmer. The ultra smooth formula is enriched with avocado oil for a smooth finish and resists water, heat, and humidity—perfect for a day of fun in the sun."
The formula of these liners is very creamy, smooth, pigmented and they glide-on very easily. Most of these liners provide great color payoff with a single swipe!

For the most part, these liners last well over +8 hours on the eye area and +3 hours on the waterline before showing signs wear. Which is great, but they fall short of the 12-hour claim as advertised. However, they are waterproof and can withstand some humidity. Once applied, these liners do have some play time and can be easily smudged and blended, but over time they do set and become tough to budge.

Some shades, like Blonde AmbitionTropical Dancefloor and Eccentric Diva were only buildable to a semi-opaque coverage while other shades, like Tiramisu and Black Lace were buildable to a fully opaque coverage.

Overall, I feel like there is a nice selection of textures and they compliment each other well. This set definitely makes me think of summer and warm, tropical islands! Sephora eye liners are in my top 3 brands of favorite liners -- I guarantee you'll be surprised by how great they are!
