Do Sephora’s Colorful Mono eye shadows pass Bionic’s test?

by Bionic Beauty on 28.Jan.2010 · 4 comments

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.

My new "bright" eye shadows from Sephora. Do they pass muster?

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.

The new Revlon colors look nice. I didn’t care for these Sephora ones either. I wish their inhouse line was slightly nicer….

Wow, I guess if you want to throw your money away this would be a good way to do it.

I agree with you! Sephora single colors never drew my attention. I’d much rather get a drugstore brand! Great review~

Ulta eyeshadow singles are surprisingly great. Plus, many of the colors are dupes for Urban Decay shadows.
