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. 84 Cookie Crunch–a shimmery golden brown.
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.
Cookie Crunch is a shimmery, golden brown. The shade has good color and a semi-opaque finish.
The formula for this shade is a bit stiff, which results in slight grittiness when you apply this shadow with a fluffy brush. Applying it with a dense brush for the lid isn’t a problem, but if you’re putting it into the crease, you may have to go back once or twice to even out the color.
Without primer, the color started to crease after about two and a half (2.5) hours of wear. With primer, it began to crease after about five (5) hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
I would recommend applying a primer underneath this shade to delay creasing. You may need to go back with more color to smooth it out if you’re applying this to the crease.
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.
