Holiday Sparkle: Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in 12 Glitter Copper

[Product was purchased by me. No affiliate links.]

I'm not much for pencil liners - the only one I like now is Sephora's in-house Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner, which comes in a lot of colors and really does not budge. It's creamy and glides on smoothly; I've reviewed 05 Green previously.
Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in 12 Glitter Copper.
These are fun for putting on the lower lashline, because they actually stay (though I never put anything on the waterline.). But my favorite method is a "double winged liner" on the upper lashline, and with this shade, 12 Glitter Copper, it's especially fun because it has bits of silver glitter (you can see them in the photo above). Normally I'm not a fan of pencils that have glittery bits, but this one is ridiculously pretty, and I don't find myself dealing with fallout.
I usually lay down whatever eye shadow I'm wearing (I forgot again. I 'm sorry. I'm a failure. I think it's the copper and dark brown shades from the Tarina Tarantino Wonderful palette), add a black wing near the upper lashline with liquid liner, and then use the Sephora Retractable pencil right above the drawn black line. Since the shadow and pencil colors are so similar here, it's hard to pick the pencil line out, but it's a pretty effect in person. You can have sparkling glitter near the lashline without sacrificing the inky black definition of liquid liner.
Sometimes if I'm tired, my right eyelid collapses. It's the Popeye look. Very hot. Lipstick is Rouge Dior Belle de Nuit.
I want to pick up the basic black next, to see if it stays put as well as the green and copper - and for smudging out, so I can finally tackle that sexy-sultry-vixen-femme-fatale-all-the-things smokey eye. But the fun colors are really...fun, and despite not usually wanting a glittery pencil, this one has charmed me. GLITTER ALL THE THINGS. ANNOY YOUR MENFOLK.

(Grinch at heart, that's me. Sparkle on, bitches.)
