Sephora Girls Night Out (03) Eyeshadow
Sephora Girls Night Out (03) Eyeshadow

Sephora Girls Night Out (03) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “metallic dark gold.” It’s a rich, molten yellow gold with bronzy brown undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. NARS Paramaribo is much less metallic, more golden, less warm-toned. Inglot #404 is more coppery. Inglot #430 is much yellower. MAC Amber Lights is browner and more coppery.

The color payoff of Girls Night Out is insane–it’s super, super pigmented with a rich, buttery texture that almost feels like a slick, cream eyeshadow. It is a softer eyeshadow, though, and when I used it, I did get some excess powder kicked up on the pan. On the eye, the color adhered well, so I didn’t see any fall out during application or later on while I wore the eyeshadow. I also expected that this was going to be dupable, but it doesn’t have enough copper/orange or gold/yellow to be close to a lot of expected shades. ¬†Girls Night Out also wore¬†phenomenally¬† it delivered on Sephora’s 10-hour wear claim with no fading or creasing after being worn for 10 hours (no primer).

Girls Night Out (03)

A

Girls Night Out is incredibly pigmented, long-wearing, and blends beautifully. It's only ding was some powderiness in the pan, as a result of having such a soft texture.

    Christine, do MUFE pans fit in these compacts & vice versa?

    I LOVE that this is such great quality on all counts but golds aren’t totally my “thing” and I have more than enough that are wearable on me to meet my needs (they do look good with my dark brown eyes but it’s not generally a colour I like all that much or think to wear often).

    I am happy that you are reviewing these. An employee at Sephora (probably disgruntled) told me that the pigmentation in all of their brands’ products is really poor. I was afraid to try them. I’m glad to see them getting good reviews

    • From what I’ve heard, some products are amazing, some are less so! So far, with this range, they seem to be all fairly decent/good with the major problems being fall out from the really sparkly/glittery shades–which is true with the majority of glittery eyeshadows at all price points.

    Do you actually follow the throw-out dates listed on products? For example, would you throw this shadow out after the 6 month date? Would love to hear your thoughts and possibly everyone else’s! xx

    • Hi Emme,

      We’ve asked this a few times for “Temptalia Asks You,” so you can do a quick search for others’ answers, but I throw out products based on changes in consistency, color, smell, etc.

    I love the look you created, so pretty! :)

    This reminds me of the gold in my crushed metal quad from Surf Baby- so intense. I think back to being a kid on Pirates of the Caribbean and being mesmerized by the “gold” doubloons. Yum

    That pigmentation is intense! Would be great to wear to a party or club. And I do love gold eyeshadow– but do I have too many? Nah, never!

  8. Gold eyeshadows are my fave. This one is DEFINITELY going on the wish list!

    $13 seems steep for a store brand. I think you could easily find a dupe if you have a lot of Wet N Wild eye shadows.

    How does this compare to NARS Etrusque?

  11. Lark

    This looks like NARS Etrusque, a wonderful and very useful shade.

    It also looks like Sephora is really stepping up their game by sending improved product out to blogs. Perhaps the economy has finally affected their traffic? Who goes to Sephora for Sephora stuff? We wind up with some but it’s never been the big draw before.
    Just saying.

    I appreciate that you’re taking the time to review these! I was looking at some of the shadows in the store. I was having trouble figuring out if they were the old formulation or the new (because they still had the $12 price point on them, so I’m thinking former) but at least if I go through the website I’d know I’d be getting the new ones.

    These first few do seem to have been a step up in quality, though I agree I wish they were a bit cheaper. You can get pans of MUFE for only $15 so for these to be $13 feels a bit high to me.

    • Yeah – I think if they just made pans available, you’d see a $10-ish price point, and I’m sure a lot of us who buy pans have no desire or need for a bunch of empty compacts!

  13. This is beautiful, and I’m pleasantly surprised to hear you didn’t find any exact dupes. Must check out these eyeshadows soon, and also try that eye look!

    Pretty color! I’m going to pick this up, I’ll be my first sephora eyeshadow! Nice look you created using it too!

    I’m not going to run out to grab the colors you’ve posted so far, just because I have close colors. I am interesting in the quality, and an easy pop-out pan would be handy for my free palette. It’s such a pain to depot stuff like UD and MAC to the pan, because I’ve always had to get heat involved.

  16. Chrissie

    Hello Christine, how does this compare to MAC Goldmine?

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sabrina Sabrina Nogueira

    Beautiful!!!!sometimes i have a hard time trying to figure what eyeshadow are you using…. why don’t you use only the eyeshadow you are reviewing?? And then you can create another section with the looks of the Week?

  18. Phyrra

    Love! I have a ton of gold eyeshdaows, but I still want this one :)

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamela Pamela

    Christine, how does this compare to Bare Escentuals Star Treatment gold color called Connoisseur? Should I have both or just one?

  20. Is this darker than Urban Decay Half Baked?

  21. Danyelle

    I kinda need this eyeshadow now lol I love the color and pigmentation. I’ve had issues with sephora’s eyeshadow pigmentation (don’t get me started on my old blockbuster palette!) but the new formula looks amazing.
