Sephora Curacao Punch (13) Eyeshadow
Sephora Curacao Punch (13) Eyeshadow

Sephora Curacao Punch (13) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright aquamarine with silver glitter.” It’s a bright, medium blue with a hint of teal and silver glitter. The underlying color has a metallic finish. NARS South pacific #1 is a touch muted in comparison and has no glitter. Urban Decay Electric is bluer and matte. Make Up For Ever #83 is very similar but has no glitter.

The color payoff was just so-so when applied dry, but it was incredibly pigmented and intense when applied using a dampened brush. The glitter also adhered better initially when the product was applied to the lid with a wet brush, because when it is used dry, there is a ton of glitter fall out during the application process. Unsurprisingly, the big downfall to Curacao Punch was the glitter fall out during wear–which was lots and lots–and was noticeable after five hours or so of wear. The actual blue color lasted eight and a half hours well, and it looked a bit faded after a full ten. I noticed some very slight staining when I wore this shade without primer. It feels soft, despite the heavy glitter content, and smoothes out nicely on the skin.

C+
If you already have a great adhesive for glitter eyeshadows, Curacao Punch is still worth considering; it has great brightness and plenty of sparkle. If you loathe fall out, though, stay away!
