Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Blonde Ambition

I don't know that I would have tried out this liner if it hadn't been part of the Ten Shades of Samba kit - just because, on me, I would have thought it would be almost invisible, so kind of pointless to wear.

It's not much in the way of definition…but think if you could have an elegant cream liner with enough shimmer to brighten, but not an intense white. That's what this is. This is a great liner when I want a little bit of brightening, not much in the way of definition, but an overall look that's moved out of ‘trendy' and into ‘understated/elegant.'

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

I like how this acts almost - but not quite - as a brighter neutral liner along my lashline. I'm betting that on deeper skintones (both warm and cool) this would look especially striking. Medium or fair warmer skintones might find this to be near-invisible, or a subtle beige shimmer, depending both on individual preference and overall coloring.
