Flash superior color, flawless wear, and long-lasting beauty with this striking eye shadow formula. The Color Eye Last complex means you can comfortably wear this shadow up to 10 gorgeous hours and the micronized pigments ensure an ultra smooth, blendable texture. The range of colors and finishes complement day and evening looks, from perfect mattes to pearlized shimmers, glitters, and a glossy mirror glow.
Sephora has released a new line of eye shadows in its Colorful Eyeshadow Collection. The collection includes 80 different shades in 4 finishes: matte, shimmer, glitter and mirror effect. The formula is said to be highly concentrated, containing up to 70% of pigments and shimmers to provide ultimate color intensity. These shadows are supposed to last 10 hours. They can also be placed in Sephora’s new palettes, which are offered with 3 pans or 6 pans.
I will be reviewing all of the new colors offered in the Colorful Eyeshadow Collection. This review is for the shade No. 2 Snakeskin Dress–a shimmering golden khaki.
Each eye shadow comes individually packaged in a plastic compact with a see-through, snap-shut lid. Along the edge of the pan in which the eyeshadow sits is a small groove which helps you easily remove the pan so that you can put it into a larger palette, if you wish.
Snakeskin Dress is an olive–khaki with a golden sheen. The color has great pigmentation and is semi-opaque on the skin.
The shadow, in the pan, is a little on the dry and stiff side. Luckily, this doesn’t seen to affect how the shadow applies. It blends out smoothly in the crease while maintaining its color strength and it packs onto the lid evenly.
Without primer applied underneath, the color started to crease slightly by hour three (3). With primer, the creasing began around hour seven (7).
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This shade transfers onto the skin well and blends out smoothly and evenly in the crease area. It also packs onto the lid without needed extra layering.
For $13.00 you get 0.07 ounces of eye shadow. This is slightly more product than you’d get in a MAC eye shadow, and costs $2.00 less. Still, for a brand like Sephora (which, admittedly has been stepping up its game in the last year), this price point is a little higher than I’d expect for a single shadow.
