When I was 17 I had one Sephora powder eyeshadow. It was a shimmery moss green that wasn’t the best quality, but at the time I didn’t know it and I didn’t really care. I would just sweep it over my lids and I can’t even recall if it looked good… I just knew that I liked it. Haha! At that age my knowledge of makeup covered eyeliners and the use of an eyelash curler. Eyeshadows were new territory for me. I picked out a Sephora one because their in-store displays are simple and straight to the point.
I never really went beyond the Sephora brand stuff when I was younger simply because I didn’t know any better. Soon enough though, I fell in love with some Shu Uemura products. After that, I explored so many other brands that Sephora Collection stuff just faded from my mind. Of course the store itself became makeup paradise for me, but my focus was on every other brand because there are just so many and there are so many other amazing products to try. This Jumbo Liner is the first Sephora Collection item I’ve purchased since that green eyeshadow from so many years ago. I grabbed it because I was staring at the Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadows and I was getting so frustrated at how expensive they were. I couldn’t justify spending 22 Euro (was in Paris) on one eyeshadow, so I paid 8 Euro for the Sephora liner instead. Strange how the prices in USD are so different but I remember the price difference distinctly because I was so shocked at the huge gap.
The Jumbo Liners came in a small range of shades in the particular branch I was at so I went with 07 Brown– a safe option.
