For spring, Sephora added four new Mirror finish eyeshadows to their already-massive Colorful Eyeshadow range. These are very… un-spring-like in a way, as three of the shades are darker and smokier than the pastels we typically see during the season, so it’s a refreshing set of shades. Looking at the other shades that existed previously, they’re good choices to help round out the colors with this finish. The Mirror finish is supposed to be highly pigmented with “the highest possible shine.” Sephora’s Colorful eyeshadow formula boasts a 10-hour wear time with “an ultrasmooth, blendable texture.”

Sephora Lunar Eclipse (98) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a gold-leaning pewter with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was almost cream-like and applied smoothly overall. It wore well for almost nine hours and had almost no fall out over time. bareMinerals Golden Pear (LE, $14.00) is less metallic. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is lighter, less golden. MAC Greenluxe #3 (P) is less sparkly. MAC Antique Diamond (P, $18.50) is a cream. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 (LE) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #19 (LE, $33.00) is lighter.

Planet Earth (99) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, olive green with green and gold micro-sparkle and a metallic sheen. It had more of a neutral undertone–not quite cool, not quite warm. It had nice pigmentation, and it applied smoothly. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me with very minor fall out. Ulta Sage (P, $10.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Mildew (P, $18.00) is warmer. MAC Unsurpassable (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Greensmoke (DC, $15.00) is darker.

Across the Universe (100) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a smoky, navy blue with lighter, brighter blue sparkle and shimmer and a pearly sheen. They can’t all be winners, and this one was a miss–the texture was drier, stiffer, and the resulting color payoff was semi-sheer to semi-opaque. It seemed to fade faster than the other shades as I could see some fading and some fall out after seven hours. Giorgio Armani Blue Beetle (34) (LE, $33.00) is lighter, brighter. Makeup Geek Ocean Breeze (P, $5.99) is more muted. Sugarpill Magpie (P, $12.00) is brighter. bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches or view The Dupe List.

Star-Crossed Lovers (103) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and larger pink micro-glitter and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff, but it seemed to have chunkier glitter than the other three, so I had some noticeable fall out by the eighth hour, though the color itself seemed to do well for nine hours. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #12 (P, $9.99) is less sparkly, darker. MAC Da Bling (P, $15.00) is less sparkly, more muted. Make Up For Ever #24E (P, $20.00) is a cream product.
