Energy

Sephora Energy Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-coral base chocked full of lighter gold sparkle throughout and a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that could be layered up or diffused, depending on preferences.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and creamy without being too emollient, so it blended out well but could be worn at higher opacity if desired. This shade lasted well for nine and a half hours before showing signs of creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.16 oz. - $62.50 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "lightweight, buildable" and set "without creasing, fallout, or fading for comfortable" wear. The coverage was more semi-opaque to opaque for many shades, so for those wanting a sheerer effect or to really build up the layers, I'd recommend deliberately using less than you expect to need as these felt more pigmented than sheer from using them.

The texture was lightweight, emollient, and creamy--more mousse-like--and they had 10-15 seconds of working time that enabled me to apply, blend, and place without having to work at a breakneck pace. Once the formula dried down, it was quite set and would flake off if one tried to keep working with it. Left alone, then they lasted for 9-10 hours without fading, flaking, or creasing on me.

Ready

Sephora Ready Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a darker copper with warmer, more orange base and lighter, golden shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It appeared less orange when applied at higher coverage or layered up, but the base was more orange for sure.

The texture was lightweight, emollient and creamy with a thin feel that was quick to dry down but was forgiving and easy enough to work with. It wore well for nine hours before creasing faintly.

Connect

Sephora Connect Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a deep, smoldering brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl finish. It was richly pigmented in a single stroke, though it could be sheered out a bit if desired.

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and thin with a creamy feel that dried down in about 10 seconds–I had enough time to apply and diffuse but it didn’t have enough time to settle into fine lines as it set. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours before creasing a bit.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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!

I do so love, love and love those metallic looking liquid eyeshadow shades – not that I am a liquid eyeliner wearer (too difficult for me to apply without my glasses on!) – but those neutral leaning colours are right up my alley. Ready would be my favourite. It’s good to see the brand putting out really decent products too.

I cannot believe Charged Up got such a good review. Everyone is churning out trash liquid eyeshadows like they’re getting paid to 😉 and Sephora’s house collection is quitely over here killing it for a lower price tag.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
