Jordana Cosmetics 12HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil (2 Shades) - Swatches and Review

August 26, 2013

One of Jordana Cosmetics newest products to hit the drugstore, are these 12 Hour Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencils. I love using eyeshadow pencils as a base for my shadow and even to wear on their own. There are 8 shades available and some have different finishes. 4 are matte, one shimmer, and three pearl. See more about how these are from Jordana are and if I loved them.

Jordana Eyeshadow Pencils in Endless Emerald and Continuous Almond
I ended up buying the Endless Emerald and Continuous Almond. As an everyday neutral base, I will use MAC Painterly paint pot since it evens out my eyelid and helps me shadows to stick better. Continuous Almond has been my go to base now. It's not a dupe for Painterly but the formula is pretty close. Close enough that I would rather use this one from Jordana than the MAC one.

One thing I noticed about these pencils, is that you need to use them quickly. I tried using Endless Emerald by applying it on both eyes at one time, but it dried as I was working with the other one making it streaky. So I had to take it off and start over. Same with Continuous Almond, so I'm guessing that's just the formula of these. So if you apply it to one eye first and then apply it to the other, it will work better. Other than that, I love these! They last all day without creasing or smudging.

Jordana Cosmetics 12HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencils retail for $3.99 each and can be found exclusively at Walgreens or on the Jordana website.
