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. 75 Sandcastle–a matte warm beige.
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.
Sandcastle is a matte nude with a slight yellow undertone to the beige color that runs through it. This is a very versatile neutral shade; it can be used in the crease for subtle definition, all over the lid, or even as a contouring color depending on your skin tone.
The formula for Sandcastle has the right amount of softness without being overly crumbly. It glides over the skin smoothly and evenly without becoming patchy or needing multiple layers.
This shadow, without primer underneath, didn’t crease for the first four (4) hours of wear. Applied over primer, the eye shadow had started to crease by hour seven (7). This makes the formula good in terms of being long-wearing, though it doesn’t reach the 10-hour mark like Sephora claims.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
The formula applies evenly and smoothly over the skin, whether you use it in the crease or on the lid. I don’t have problems with fall-out.
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.
