Price: $13.00

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.

They can also be placed in Sephora’s new palettes, which are offered with 3 pans or 6 pans.
