Sephora Picnic in the Park (07) Eyeshadow
Sephora Picnic in the Park (07) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “shimmering grass green.” It’s a brightened emerald green with a subtle golden shimmer-sheen–but it has a definite cool undertone, more in line with an emerald green than a grass green. MAC Fresh Flare is darker. Milani Green Safari is similar–slightly darker–and a cream product. Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here #3 is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Deacy Graffiti is similar–slightly frostier.
Picnic in the Park had good color payoff both wet and dry, but it did apply better and with more pigment when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was very soft, smooth, and blendable. This type of green is prone to staining, and this shade is no different; my arm was lightly stained after only having this on it for mere moments. When I wore this shade on my lid with no primer, while it lasted a solid nine hours and only had very minor signs of fading after ten hours, there was a faint stain left behind, too. I tried wearing it over a primer and that seemed to prevent the staining.
|If you want to enjoy the color of the year (emerald), this is a nice version that won't (completely) break the bank.|
