Sephora Break the Bank (11) Eyeshadow

Sephora Break the Bank (11) Eyeshadow
Sephora Break the Bank (11) Eyeshadow

Sephora Break the Bank (11) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “emerald green with silver glitter.” It’s a darkened, aqua green with silver and aqua glitter and metallic finish. Tom Ford Emerald Lust is darker, less green. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl is bluer. Becca Luella is a touch darker.

This shade applied better with a dampened brush, because the color was weak dry, and there was a ton of glitter fall out if the eyeshadow was patted on dry. Unfortunately, while applying it damp helped to improve color payoff and minimize fall out, it did not apply evenly or smoothly; it looked patchy and faded from the get-go. With this particular shade, I think the only way to really get the color to come through is by layering it over a green/teal (or white) colored base.

Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer
Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “faded slate-blue shimmer.” It’s a muted, cool-toned blue shot through with silver and icy blue shimmer. There’s a definite gray-ish cast to it that gives it that “slate-blue” coloring as described. I thought the finish was more metallic than shimmer, though. Butter London Lady Muck has a completely different finish, and it looks a bit bluer because it has less shimmer/sheen. Rescue Beauty Lounge Concrete Jungle is a cream, but it has a similar gray-blue coloring.

I couldn’t think of another polish that I’ve covered that has this color with this kind of finish.  It has a very metallic finish, and as a result, there are brush strokes or threads of metallic shimmer that are visible even in muted, natural light. On the plus side, it has a faster drying time than the average polish, which tends to be true of metallic finishes as well.  The consistency wasn’t thick or really thin, but there was a slight wateriness to the formula that took some getting used to.  I was going to redo these swatches, but I’m short on time (and long on polishes to review) and I know Deborah Lippmann’s spring shades are going fast.  I had no trouble getting full, opaque color coverage in two coats, though.  I recommend waiting for each coat to dry, because it is unforgiving if you try to apply the next coat too soon–it will pull.  I typically get a week of wear out of Deborah Lippmann’s polishes.

Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense

Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense

Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “beige plum.” It’s a subtly warm-toned coral brown–there’s some orange and a smidgen of rosiness to brighten the brown coloring of this shade. It has a soft, luminous finish. Bobbi Brown Guava is slightly lighter. Chanel Pimpante is brighter, warmer. Cle de Peau R9 is pinker and shimmery. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker.

This shade had mostly opaque color coverage with a very light translucency overall.  The pencil is creamy enough to apply evenly and easily without tugging or pulling at the lip, but it’s not so creamy that it slides around on the lip, so the wear time is good, too–a nice four and a half hours.  It’s lightly hydrating while worn and doesn’t leave you wanting to make a mad dash for your lip balm after it wears away.  Clinique’s Chubby Sticks all twist-up, so there’s no need to sharpen.
