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. 82 Hollywood’s Calling–a golden brown with a shimmering mirror finish.
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.
Hollywood’s Calling is a rich golden-brown shade that’s packed with gold glitter particles. The color is super-pigmented and equally shimmery.
The formula for this color is soft and it will deform a little under the pressure of a brush. Though the color is beautiful on the skin, the glitter particles will definitely produce fall-out throughout the day.
Without primer, the color started to crease after about three (3) hours of wear. With primer applied, the shade started to crease after five (5) hours of wear.
In the end, the fall-out this eye shadow produces pulls an otherwise A+ rating for color down to an overall B rating.
Ease of Use: 8/10
This eyeshadow is easy to apply because it transfers well and the buttery formula blends quickly. The difficult part is dealing with the falling glitter and shadow particles. Make sure you apply the eye shadow before you apply the rest of your makeup because you’ll have to clean up the fall-out. Also check your makeup throughout the day because you’ll see a few specks of glitter that have fallen, even if you’ve applied primer first.
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.
