Company’s Description

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. 71 Blonde Ambition–a shimmering golden beige., Inc.

Packaging: 9.25/10

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.

Quality: 9/10

Blonde Ambition is a very pale gold color with a beige undertone and frosty finish. The color has good pigmentation and a semi-translucent finish.

The formula for this color isn’t soft or stiff. It transfers well onto the lid so you won’t have to dig into the pan to get the color to show up.

Blonde Ambition lasted longer before creasing compared to many of the other Sephora Colorful Eyeshadows. Without primer, the color started to crease after about three (3) hours of wear. But with primer applied, there was only slight creasing even after ten (10) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

This eyeshadow is easy to apply because it transfers onto the skin easily.

Price: 9/10

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.
