Long-lasting (Up to 12 Hour wear)
Easy to use
Jordana’s 12 Hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencils are cream eye shadows that come in 8 different shades. This review is for the following 4 shades: Eternal White, Continuous Almond, Pink Evermore, and Stay-On Black.
These eye shadows come in pencil form and will need to be sharpened. They each have a plastic cap that slides on and off.
Eternal White is a matte white shade. Continuous Almond is a matte nude that pretty much blends into my NC20 skin. Pink Evermore is a baby pink color with silver glitter particles. Once applied, the pink pigment mostly goes away, leaving the silver glitter behind. Stay-On Black is a rich black with a subtle glossy sheen.
All 4 of these colors have a creamy formula that transfers well onto the skin. They have decent pigmentation, except that the pink color in Pink Evermore fades away once you blend it into the skin. I didn’t have any fall-out issues with the glitter in Pink Evermore. The strength of color for the other 3 shades also fades pretty quickly during the blending process.
These pencils are better suited as bases than as stand-alone eye shadows. They definitely aren’t crease-proof. They start creasing after 2-3 hours unless you apply primer underneath, in which case they’ll go about 5 hours before starting to crease. They strength of color also seems to weaken after a few hours of wear. The cream formula has a slightly sticky quality to them, so they work great underneath powder shadows to intensify the powder shadow’s staying powder and color.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
The pencil form is very easy to use because you just slide it across the skin. These put up some resistance against blending, so do one eye at a time and use a little more pressure than you’d normally use.
For less than $4.00, you get 0.1 ounces (2.8 grams) of shadow. NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencils cost $4.50 but contain much more–5 grams of product. So, while these shadows are still a good deal even compared to other drugstore brands, it’s not as much of a steal as Jordana’s products usually are.
