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. 51 Rock The Runway–a shimmery violine taupe.
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.
Rock The Runway is a grey-brown with a low level of shimmer that is difficult to detect, especially in the crease. Don’t let the pan fool you–this color is deceptively strong when it comes to its grey tone, and looks much more grey on the skin than brown. I actually find it a little unflattering on my NC20 skin because of the strong grey tint this shade has.
The formula for this color is slightly stiff and the shade doesn’t blend out seamlessly in the crease.
Without primer, the color started to fade in the crease area after three (3) hours of wear. With primer applied, this fading effect didn’t start until about six (6) hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 8/10
This shade requires more time to buff into the crease to get a smooth finish.
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.
