As you all know, I’m more than happy to experiment with bright colors- in my hair, on my lips, and with my eye makeup. Hence, these new-ish single eye shadows from Sephora captured my attention.
Preppy Look is a matte denim blue; Picnic in the Park is a bright teal with some shimmer.
Sadly, they produced more than their fair share of fall out during application on my eyes, so I opted to just swatch them on my arm. Seriously, the powder was everywhere on my face. I even tried using them wet, to no avail.
The color payoff was average, about what you’d get from a CoverGirl eyeshadow. If you are looking for a soft wash of color, these could certainly work for you, except for that pesky fallout.
My suggestion: Save your bucks and get a CoverGirl shadow for soft accents; or Milani if you want more pigmentation.
Both of Sephora’s “Colorful Mono Eyeshadows” in Preppy Look and Picnic in the Park are available at Sephora.com and Sephora stores. There are a multitude of other colors and cost $12 each.
