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’s line of Colorful Eyeshadows contains nearly 100 different colors 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.
This review is for the shade No. 11 Break The Bank–an emerald green with silver glitter.
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.
Break The Bank is an emerald green with silver glitter. This eye shadow has translucent pigmentation and lots of glitter.
The formula for this shade is stiff in the pan and requires extra pressure and multiple swipes of the brush to get an even layer of shadow over the skin.
There was slight creasing of the color after 3.5 hours of wear when applied without primer. With primer, creasing began after about 5 hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 7.5/10
Use a dense brush to pack this shade onto the lids and prepare to use several layers to smooth out the finish. The glitter particles also produce some fall-out, so be prepared to clean these away.
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.
