I picked up 4 shades from the new Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencils. I already reviewed their new jumbo eyeshadow sticks here & was wowed so i was really excited about these! If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know I’m a huge fan of the Rimmel Scandal Eyes pencils & hoped these would be comparable. I was only able to pick up 4 shades but there are 6 total. Keep reading to see if you need them!
From the Jordana website:
- Intense, Instant Color Eyeliner that is Made to Last
- Smooth-Gliding Pencil For a Precise Application
- Water and Transfer Resistant
- Paraben- Free
- Made in USA
They were all out of the shade Black Point & Aqua Stone looked similar to shades I already had so I picked up Purple Fix, Charcoal Definition, Espresso Last, & Jade Jewel. They are super soft & creamy, perfect for the waterline. They are also crazy long wearing, very similar to their Milani sister brand formula, & glide right on with fab pigmentation. The product itself is really soft so do use with care, you shouldn’t need to press all that much because they really do perform like a liquid. Sharpen with care a well.
Left to right: Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner in Purple Fix, Charcoal Definition, Espresso Last, & Jade Jewel.
Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner in Purple Fix- A royal purple with vibrant purple shimmer that dries to a satin finish.
Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner in Charcoal Definition- Highly pigmented charcoal grey with fine silver shimmer.
Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner in Espresso Last- A rich matte brown. Identical dupe to both the Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Tenacious Brown & Milani Shadow Eyez Limited Edition Shade in Espresso Line but in a slim pencil. You can see those two shades compared here.
Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner in Jade Jewel- A smoky base with intense emerald shimmer. It almost looks metallic but after it sets it looks a bit more like a rich satin.
Once these shades set, they aren’t budging. At all. They last ages on the waterline like my Rimmel Scandal Eyes & the Milani pencils that I’m pretty sure these are based on. The formula is pretty much identical. These are very similar to the NYX Slide-On Pencils, Jordana 12 HR Jumbo Eye Pencils, Urban Decay 24/7 Liners, Milani Shadow Eyez, Rimmel Scandal Eyes, & my Sephora Flashy Liners. Creamy, rich, & easy to use. So how do you choose? I say go by color! Choose colors you like the best from different ranges until you have a collection you truly love since they all perform similarly.
You know what isn’t comparable to other brands? The price! These shades are only $2.99 & if you wait it out you can likely snag a deal. I found mine in a new display at Walgreens. I can only hope they come out with more than 6 shades…because I’ll snap them up!
