So far, I have 2 of these shadows (Be on the A List and Rock the Runway) and can’t say enough good things about them. They are excellent quality (better than many shadows costing twice as much) and there is a wonderful range of colours. I certainly plan on getting several more of these as they are SO good. I love that the individual pans have flat lids (for easy stacking) and that these are easy to de-pot AND that Sephora throws in empty palettes for free if you purchase multiple shadows. How great is that?
It was really hard to choose a colour from the drop down list to describe this shadow. Sephora describes it as “Taupe Violine Shimmer” (whatever the heck that means!) but this is somewhere in that strange land between grey, pewter, taupe, lavender and soft, dusty plum. It is a beautiful shade that marries well with so many other shadows in my collection and is a perfect crease defining colour because it really looks like a “shadow” rather than like “eye shadow”. And, again, kudos to Sephora for making these shadows easy to de-pot and also for offering the larger palettes for “free” if you purchase 2 shadows (a free 3 pan) or 3 shadows (the larger palette). I do wish they’d make the 3-pan into a 4-pan; that would be just that little bit more practical for me. The Sephora shadows are, for the most part, really excellent and I plan to be buying a few more of these.
On the A List is a wonderful, neutral to somewhat cool leaning taupe eye shadow. At Sephora’s site, it is categorized as having a “Shimmer” finish and I’d say it’s similar to MAC’s Veluxe Pearl or Inglot’s Pearl finishes – very pretty and it imparts “light” without being too garish or full on frosty. This is a wonderful shadow. On me, this shadow alone with a very little bit of black liner and maybe even mascara and my eyes look so enhanced. The price of these shadows is amazing and the fact that Sephora put thought into the packaging and making it easy (and affordable) for users to de-pot them easily and without risk of damaging the shadows is wonderful. This is long overdue from companies like MAC!
