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).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Thanks! I was hoping just the finish matte v non matte was different but it appears I need this yellow as well. Strangely enough yellow is my staple probably because I always have red eye from late nights at work followed by early gym time. :(. Please keep the great reviews coming

Gorgeous! I’m surprised at the quality of these shadows. I bought a couple of their baked shadows and they sucked so bad, even when wet I was sad because thy were $17 a pop.
