Jordana Cosmetics 'Made to Last' eyeliner and eyeshadow pencils!


Good morning Zombies!

I meant to have this post up yesterday, but a migraine wiped me out. Anyhoo, here we go!

I was given to opportunity to try out the new Jordana Cosmetics 'Made to Last' Liquid Eyeliner and Eyeshadow pencils and have them swatched for you all.

Per Jordana's website:

12HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil
• Long-lasting (Up to 12 Hour wear)
• Easy to use
• Water-Resistant, Crease-Proof
• Paraben-Free

 12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil
• Intense, Instant Color Eyeliner that is Made to Last
• Smooth-Gliding Pencil For Precise Application
• Long-Lasting (Up to 12 hour wear)
• Water & Transfer Resistant
• Paraben-Free

Eyeshadow pencils come in 8 color.


Liquid Eyeliner pencils come in 6 color.


I love the chunky feel to the eyeshadow pencils. The packaging is also quite durable making the pencils have a sleek look and feel to them. The product glides right on the skin.


Liquid Eyeliner pencils are also pretty sleek and easy to work with. The product tends to glide on very smoothly.

My thoughts:

I LOVE the eyeshadow pencils with a passion. My favorites of the group are Prolong Purple, Endless Emerald, Stay On Black, and Aqua Last. Not only do these glide on the skin super easily, but they are so pigmented and last forever. It took me getting in the shower and using my face wash to get the swatches off. :D I didn't notice much creasing with these and love the glitter in a few of the shades. Like I mentioned above, the packaging is really sleek on these pencils and has a nice smooth feel to them, making them feel more *expensive* and *luxurious* than their price tag would have you think. These will make a great base for underneath eyeshadow or fun to use alone.

I did indeed like a few of the Liquid Eyeliner pencils. I felt these were a little harder to work with and that the product didn't want to spread evenly in the swatch, even though they did glide on with no pulling (if that makes sense). Charcoal Definition was the hardest of the group to work with as it ended up patchy once applied. I love the pigmentation in Black Point and Jade Jewel is definitely a nice green jeweled liner. Purple Fix has pink sparkles within the base but once again, a little harder to apply evenly. They do seem to last a long time once applied.

12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil can be found at your local Walgreens retail for $2.49 (USD) each which may vary from location.

12HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil can be found at your local Walgreens and retail for $3.99 (USD) each, which may vary from location.

  1. You should try the lipliner in Tawny- I'm starting to like Jordana. How do these compare to UD 24/7 or Nyx glid on/MAC Pearlglide pencils?
