Sephora's 10 Shades of Samba Waterproof Eyeliner Set: Review and Swatches

 Product description: "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."


Price:  $49


Let me start off by saying, these colors are really beautiful and definitely eye catching!  The whole set of ten is $49 so you are paying under $5 for each eye liner, which is a pretty great deal! All of the colors may not be "everyday" wearable for some people but even being used on the inside corner of eyes for a pop of color, anyone can make the brighter colors work.The color pay off is brilliant! They glide on smooth and are easy to use. I tested each liner without a primer and the staying power was fantastic and the pigmentation was great.

Check out Swatches after the jump:

Swatches(Absolutely no primer!):


Top- Left to right: Blonde Ambition, Cookie Crunch, Tropical Dancefloor, Tiramisu, Black lace
Bottom-Left to Right: Eccentric Diva, Romantic Comedy, Summer Cruise, Caipirinha Dreamin', Banana Split


Blonde Ambition: This is a really pretty shimmery champagne pearl color (I am super pale so I apologize for the swatch not being super noticeable). This is a great color to wear on the lower waterline as it opens up the eye and makes your eyes look bigger and more awake.
Cookie Crunch: A medium golden brown color with some faint bronze shimmer. This would be beautiful on blue eyes! Very wearable for everyday.
Tropical Dancefloor: A shimmery and bright golden-copper color.  Again, ideal for blue eyes but wearable for anyone! 
Tiramisu: A warm toned medium-dark brown with a matte finish.
Black Lace: A rich matte black.
Eccentric Diva: A shimmery medium purple with cool undertones. This color would really make green eyes pop!
Romantic Comedy: This is a bright, shimmery medium pink with cool undertones.
Summer Cruise: A really pretty bright, medium turquoise blue with pearl shimmer. So pretty in summer for brown eyes!
Caipirinha Dreamin': This is a really pretty warm toned golden green color-it is bright and flashy and has a shimmery finish.
Banana Split: A bright, primary yellow with a matte finish.

So all of these wear super well and don't smudge all over the place. I was really impressed with the long-wear quality of each shade, wearing easily at least 7-8 hours no problem. Here is a shot of the swatches after literally rubbing a dry paper towel several times over my hand-I was really scrubbing, guys!



I was pretty impressed by these liners-I think they are well worth the $49 price tag for a set of 10 liners (making each liner $4.90 each). These are awesome, fun colors for summer and a really good kit for beginners or seasoned makeup artists alike!
