The Jordana Made to Last 12 Hour Eyeshadow Pencils have made a few appearances on my blog these past few weeks. When I saw the press release for these I thought they looked so similar to the Milani ShadowEyez (which I adore). I had tried lip liners and mascara from Jordana but never any of their eyeshadows. I was skeptical before trying them but I’m happy to report they are quite nice cream eyeshadows.
These pencils cost $3.99 at the drugstore. You can see the full range here. They come in eight colors with a mix of neutrals and brights. In terms of drugstore eyeshadow pencils, they are most comparable to the Milani ShadowEyez ($7) in formula because they are both creamy, pigmented, long-wearing, and don’t crease. They can be used alone (unlike the Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Pencils or NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils which crease on their own). The Jordana Made To Last pencils are cheaper. However, I still prefer the Milani ShadowEyez because, although Eternal White is an amazing white pencil, I found that Endless Emerald applies a bit patchy. Still, it makes a good eyeshadow base.
To see Eternal White in use, see my Ice Princess look. To see Endless Emerald in use, see my Emerald Green Spotlight. Let me know if you have tried these as well. I hope you had a nice weekend!
