Best of Sephora: Eyes

Part 2 in our breakdown of the "Best of Sephora 2007" winners!

Eyeshadow: Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio in Headshot
This is a great trio...versatile colors, nice texture, compact size. The brown color in this trio skews a little too orange on me, so I would have gone with one of the other nominees, Stila Eye Shadow Pan in Kitten. But, a worthy winner nonetheless!

Mascara: DiorShow
Well, I think you all know by now where my mascara loyalties lie. I just can't get on the DiorShow bandwagon, because it would mean deserting my beloved Lancome Fatale (not even nominated! boo hiss!). Fatale garners compliments every single time I wear it. If it's ever discontinued I will call Lancome and have them messenger their entire remaining stock, whatever the cost.

Eyeliner: Sephora Slim Pencil - Eye, in Black
Never tried it, so can't really comment. Honestly I've never been drawn to anything in the Sephora line. But I can vouch for three of the other nominees - Smashbox Cream Eyeliner, Stila Smudge Pots, and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. They are fab! For the Sephora pencil to have beat them all, it must be pretty good.

Eyebrow Enhancer: Anastasia All About Brows Kit
I use one of the other nominees, Smashbox Brow Tech, but the Anastasia kit beats it just in terms of sheer volume and selection. The All About Brows kit comes with tweezers, brow powder duo, four brow stencils, a duo angle/spool brush, brow gel, and a highlighter pencil! The only thing missing is a wax/pomade, which is what I love about the Smashbox set.

Do you agree with the Sephora winners? What are your all time favorite products in the eye category?
