Review | Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in Sunglasses Needed

For a long time now I have stuck to neutral toned shades on my eyes. Sometimes I like to put shimmery, vibrant colours on the inner corners of the eye just to give a pop of colour but I wish I had more confidence to wear bright orange or bright green eyeshadows to work every day. Neutral tones are nice and safe but sometimes I want to experiment with bright blues, reds and greens. When I was in America recently I made a big Colourpop order full of bright and vibrant shimmery eyeshadows which I thought was enough but I couldn't resist purchasing a couple more eyeshadows in shades outside of my comfort zone.

As soon as I saw the Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in Sunglasses Needed, I didn't need to think twice before I put it in my basket. Of course, I didn't need a bright canary yellow eyeshadow but I thought it would make for a really pretty transition shade, as well as being perfect for applying to the inner corners of the eye for a pop of colour to a neutral brown base. 

About the Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadows:
"A range of shadows featuring highly pigmented, long-lasting colors in a variety of finishes. Watch makeup go from everyday to extraordinary with this endless array of colors and finishes. These shadows provide superior color, coverage, and long-lasting wear (up to 10 hours) thanks to the Color Eye Last complex, which includes an exclusive combination of up to 70 percent pigments, pearls, and shimmer particles. The shadows are also exceptionally easy to apply with micronized pigments that make for an ultrasmooth, blendable texture."

The Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in Sunglasses Needed is a really pretty bright canary yellow which may take you outside of your comfort zone like it did me. It is in a matte finish which has a really velvety soft formula to it which makes application and blending out incredibly easy. Because it is so easy to blend out it really does make for the most perfect transition shade in the crease of the eye. It is very pigmented so you only need a small amount on a fluffy crease brush to help blend everything through. I haven't yet used Sunglasses Needed all over the eye as a base shade but I will do, when I pluck up the courage! 

I really love the Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadows as they are all so soft and pigmented. Blending and application is so easy when you have this formula to work with and when paired with a MAC Paint Pot they last all day long on the eyelids. With over 100 shades to choose from in 3 different finishes, it is really hard to choose just a couple to take home with you! I know everyone goes in to Sephora for Kat Von D, Tarte, Becca etc but I really do love their own brand. I've not yet tried a product from the Sephora Collection which I didn't like so don't wrinkle your nose up at the own brand as it really does hold its own up against the bigger brands!

  2. I definitely think spring and summer time is the perfect time to start experimenting with more colorful and unique eyeshadow colors! That yellow color looks gorgeous! :)
