Sephora Nano Eyeliner

We’ve previously looked at Sephora’s Flashy waterproof liners and glittery Electro liners, so when I noticed Sephora had a new house-brand eyeliner out, I was irresistibly drawn to swatch.

There’s surpisingly little to say about the new Nano liners. They’re meant to be high-intensity pigment (and they’re pretty), but that’s about it. They’re not waterproof; they contain no special ingredients. They’re $5 each — and they’re short pencils, unlike Electro and Flashy. They’d be a nice thing to add to your Sephora cart if you were trying to earn free shipping. Oh, and for some reason I found them very difficult to sharpen. They didn’t seem to fit easily into the small-size sharpeners Sephora had lying around, but the larger-sized ones chewed them up.

Midnight Black and Glitter Black are almost identical. Glitter Black is a slightly softer color, and contains a few sparkles.

Pure White is exactly that: matte white with no sheen.

Coffee is a deep, cool brown with no iridescence and no sheen.

Chocolate is warm, sheeny, chocolate brown.

Glitter Brown is nearly identical to Chocolate, but it’s sparkly and a bit iridescent.

Golden Sand is an iridescent, warm yellow (almost green) brown.

I knew as soon as I swatched it that Iced Brown would excite a lot of you. It’s a cool, silvered brown.

Pearl Beige is a fantastic champagne gold — I know it seems like a weird choice to love, but what a beautiful highlight it would make for the inner corner of the eye.

Kaki Green is an olive drab, a browned forest green with some iridescence.

Silvered green (sage) is one of my absolute favorite colors… unfortunately Silver Green isn’t silver-green. Blackened teal would be a better description.

Precious Silver is a straight-up, plain, cool silver.

Nuage is a fascinating iridescent, blued, gunmetal grey. It deserves an instant following.

Gri Gri is another very cool color — I think Crayola used to call this Cadet Blue? It’s a very industrial blue-grey, no iridescence.

Azur Blue. Wow. Zing! Sephora also makes a nail polish this exact color. The eyeliner has a sheen, but no iridescence.

Lagoon is a reflective, iridescent blue-turquoise.

Blue Jean is another fab shade, iridescent blackened navy with silver sparkles — a lot like denim, actually.

Plum is an iridescent red-purple that reminded me a bit of Urban Decay’s 1999.

Wild Spirit is a blue-purple with a sheen but no iridescence.
