Sephora Banana Split (05) Eyeshadow
Sephora Banana Split (05) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “shimmering yellow.” It’s a brightened, sunshine yellow with warm, golden tones and a pearly finish–some shimmer but not a full-on frost. NARS Flowers 1 #5 is not quite as bright. Illamasqua Hype is matte. Make Up For Ever #24 is a cream product. MAC Bright Sunshine is lighter, more frosted.
It has a soft, smooth texture that’s incredibly pigmented and blends easily on the lid. The powder is just a touch powdery, but I didn’t notice it as a major problem during application (e.g. so powdery that the pigment would sheer out if you attempted to blend it). The color payoff was about the same both wet and dry, but it had a more shimmery finish when applied damp. I wore Banana Split on the inner third of my lid, and it lasted for nine hours well and was just a bit faded after ten hours (no primer).
