Power

Sephora Power Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, golden peach with a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable color payoff paired with a lightweight, thin, and creamy texture that spread readily across my lid but wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily, so it could be layered for more intensity. It lasted well for 10 hours before creasing visibly.

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.

Lightning

Sephora Lightning Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a darker, rosy brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had full color coverage in a single layer, which was actually something achievable on the skin in practice, as it blended out evenly without immediately sheering out.

It could also be used with less product and sheered out for more medium coverage if desired. The texture was lightweight, creamy but airy, and easy to work with. This shade stayed on nicely for 10 hours before creasing noticeably.

Shocking

Sephora Shocking Charged Up Liquid Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium lavender with warmer undertones and flecks of silver and cooler lavender sparkle. It had medium, buildable coverage, which was more in line with how the brand marketed the formula (other shades were more pigmented from the get-go).

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth, and it applied well as a wash of sparkle over the lid but took layering to get an even, more opaque result. It wore well for 10 hours before creasing.

FINALLY: A liquid or cream eyeshadow formula released in recent times that actually works properly and can be built up to opaque without getting patchy or textured! Whew! I was beginning to wonder if or when a brand would succeed at doing it right again. I like Lightning and Shocked a lot, and Power looks very similar to UD “X” eyeshadow.
