Sephora Green Tea Time (12) Eyeshadow
Sephora Green Tea Time (12) Eyeshadow

Sephora Green Tea Time (12) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “shimmering light teal.” It’s a bright green-teal with a soft, frosted finish. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #4 is bluer, darker. MAC Fashion Circuit is darker. Maybelline Edgy Emerald is similar. NYX Seafoam Green is a bit darker. MAC Partylicious is a touch darker and brighter.

It had decent pigmentation applied dry, but it was more intensified and closer to full color coverage when applied wet. I had an odd problem with this shade: it applied in a very crumbly, uneven fashion. I would apply it–even damp!–and it would just… ball up on itself in a way. It looked patchy, a little faded, and it took a lot of packing on of the color to get mostly even color. It was an unusual experience, and it’s definitely not something I experience often with powder eyeshadows.  The texture, in the pan, felt soft, smooth, and dense, but it just didn’t apply that way.  When I wore it, there was some signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear (no primer).

It seemed like it was going to be a fairly good product overall, but something about the way this binds together makes it very hard to work with.

    Love the color, it’s too bad that the formula is difficult to work with! Maybe it would apply smoother with a primer.

      I absolutely agree about the primer; I have several shadows, across many brands, that have a similar issue, but a primer usually solves it. I don’t have oily lids, and creasing has never been an issue, but I *always* wear a primer. I know many feel a product should perform without one, and noone should have to buy an “extra” product to get a shadow to perform it’s best, yet noone thinks twice about buying a basecoat for nail polish, which is essentially the exact same thing; eye primer is a “basecoat” for the eyes.

    it looks a lot like an eyeshadow i have from farmasi but mine’s a bit greener and has a suble duochrome and very fine gold shimmer

    Pity the formula seems so bad, because it’s a lovely colour.

  4. To me that is blue, not green, but whatever :-) I still find it a pretty interesting shade.

  5. Heyyyyy… this looks nothing like green tea! :( *irrelevant*

    This looks like it could be a dupe for Sugarpill’s Mochi (which has amazing texture and wear time)

    The expiration time on that eyeshadow says 6 months. Anyone else think that seems like a really small amount of time for a single eyeshadow of this size? Who could use this up in 6 months? Weird.

    Just an observation, but that color looks absolutely nothing like green tea.

    I wondering should they adjust the price point in these shadows because of they’re in consistency?!?

    Just bought this and tried it on. I fortunately didn’t experience any problem with the formula. It applied smoothly and evenly to the lid and was easy to blend with other shadows. The color is gorgeous!
