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.

It's much too fussy at this price point--it needs a colored, tacky base, and at best, it works better but not superbly.

    You have done an outstanding job on the eye in your photo. Just absolutely gorgeous, artistic, and pefect in technique.

    Very very beautiful. Probably my favorite I’ve ever seen you post.

    Awwwe MAN. This was the color I was most curious about, but my makeup needs to work for me not vice versa.

    I love the look you did!!! I’m really bummed this color is a bit of a mess, it was pretty unique and I love greens. You keep tempting me with these Tarina Tarantino eyeliners! Spark of Envy and Glamourous Thief are at the top of my list to buy, I’m just waiting for one of the eyeshadow palettes to go in stock before I pull the trigger on all of it.

    Aww, what a shame. The color itself is so pretty! Ah well.

    But can I just say, the look you created is gorgeous!

  6. D rating… but again she made it work! :-D

    I really like the color itself in the container. I hate it when products fool us like that :/

    You mentioned that you used this eyeshadow wet. I have read that you can only really use pigments and mineralized eyeshadow wet, is that true? How do you know which ones you can use wet and which ones you cannot? Does it really ruin eyeshadows to use them wet?
