Sephora Sweet Dreams (17) Colorful Eyeshadow
Sephora Sweet Dreams (17) Colorful Eyeshadow

Sephora Sweet Dreams (17) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blue shimmer.” It’s a pale, cool-toned bluish-white with a pearly sheen. Maybelline Icy Mint is a cream product is less cool-toned. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is slightly darker and a cream pencil. Urban Decay Strip is several shades darker. MAC Water & Ice #1 is less blue. MAC Dimensional Blue is bluer. Lancome Style Section is grayer. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is lighter, less blue. See comparison swatches here.

Sephora Pool Party (18) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright blue glitter.” It’s a periwinkle blue with silver glitter. Sugarpill Velocity is darker, matte. Urban Decay Chaos is several shades darker, slightly purpler, matte. NARS Rated R #2 is very similar. MAC Winkle is bluer. bareMinerals On the Rocks is similar, slightly purpler. Inglot #429 is much lighter and frosted. Inglot #369 is bluer and matte. See comparison swatches here.

Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans (19) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep blue shimmer.” It’s a dark, purpled navy blue with a pearly finish and cool undertones. Tom Ford Cobalt Rush #3 is bluer. Chanel Metamorphose #4 is darker. NARS Outremer is bluer, matte. Milany Primary #6 is lighter. MAC Love Cycle #2 is bluer. MAC Royale is lighter and purpler. OCC Technoir is lighter. Inglot #388 is purpler matte. See comparison swatches here.

Sweet Dreams was soft but powdery, and it applied best dry, as it crumbled on itself and created an uneven application applied damp, even though it seems smoother. It was noticeably faded after eight hours of wear (no primer).

Pool Party had so-so color payoff applied dry but amped up a lot when applied damp. The glitter did fall out during application and later on during wear, but it is not jam-packed with glitter, so the fall out isn’t as noticeable as it can be with other glittery eyeshadows. The underlying color lasted well for eight hours and was slightly faded after nine hours (no primer).

My Boyfriend’s Jeans had the same color payoff both wet and dry, and the finish seemed to stay the same, too–the damp application was slightly smoother but the difference was quite minimal between the two applications. I didn’t have any trouble with this shade’s wear, even after nine hours–no fading or creasing.

    Sigh… these swatches remind me what I’m missing out on by not having access to Sephora here :( My Boyfriend’s Jeans looks particularly beautiful! Also, loving the new layout, especially the way the dupes are now displayed. Fantastic!

  2. My boyfriend’s jeans look nice :-) Hehehe, that is fun to say…

  3. Carrie

    I want to echo what Cathy said above. Loving the dupes layout. Great job, Christine!

    • Thank you! Do you think three sets are too many showing at once?

      Our biggest struggle is dealing with multi-shade/product reviews in a single post, because it can get long with multiple Glossovers, Dupe Lists, etc.! Right now we have it so three show, and any more will produce a “click for more” reveal button so only if you care will you have to see all of ‘em!

    oh my goooooooooodddddd pool party is DELICIOUS

  5. I was looking at the Sephora shadows & blushes today. They have some cute shades, but I find them a bit overpriced given the fact that they are a “store brand.”
