Sephora has decided to step up their game and revamp their single eyeshadows!! I don't know if you all remember their old formula (YIKES) but this was a much needed change in their collection. Being that these shadows have typically retailed for around $13, about the same as single MAC shadows, their performance was far behind. Sephora has really stepped it up in the last year with their collection in general, from their new professional brushes and even their skincare, so we were all really excited (and a little skeptical) about the new shadows.
I had a chance to play with some of them before we even received them at my location and i was pleasantly surprised. Now that we have the full line I'm constantly using these on clients and now even myself! I'm truly impressed! While there are still a couple flops (major glitter fallout, a couple sad matte shadows, etc) the majority of the colors and formulas are pleasing.
These shadows still come in little sleek black pots but can now be removed and depotted into shiny black palettes, similar to their competitors, making this line much more convenient for makeup artists, those who travel, or who like to consolidate their at home collections. There are 3 Pan and 6 pan palettes, both equipped with a nice sized mirror and a little magnetized key to ease removal of shadows. As a bonus, with the purchase of 2 shadows, you will receive the 3 pan palette for free, as well as the 6 pan palette for free with the purchase of 4 or more! The only qualm i have with the packaging of the palettes is how quick they are to show fingerprints.
