Sephora Overcast Filter Colorful Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora Overcast Filter Colorful Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.398 oz.) consists of ten eyeshadows, with two being oversized compared to the remaining eight. Two shades (Sandcastle and Black Lace) are available in Sephora’s permanent line-up but the others are exclusive to the palette. Sephora’s Colorful Eyeshadow formula is supposed to “provide superior color, coverage, and long-lasting wear (up to 10 hours)” and be “exceptionally easy to apply.” I quite like the Colorful Eyeshadow formula (not every shade is a winner, of course!), but they tend to be nicely pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. This is another decent to good palette, but it’s not stellar and most shades are rather dupable, depending on your stash, of course. I found more of the shades in this palette to be slightly powdery, which resulted in sheerer color payoff.

Sephora Sunbleached Filter Colorful Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora Sunbleached Filter Colorful Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.395 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows, with two being oversized. I liked the palette overall; it’s not the best palette of all-time, but it’s decent to good. It runs light to mid-tone with only one truly dark/contrasting shade, so it is likely a better fit for those who like their colors softer. A good primer should fix the majority of pigmentation issues that I saw. Three of the shades (Secret Boudoir, Desert Rose, and Walking in the Sand) are part of the permanent range, while the remaining seven are new–and as a nice touch, they’re actually indicated as bestsellers right on the back, which just seems so nice for transparency’s sake.
