Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans (19) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep blue shimmer.” It’s a dark, purpled navy blue with a pearly finish and cool undertones. Tom Ford Cobalt Rush #3 is bluer. Chanel Metamorphose #4 is darker. NARS Outremer is bluer, matte. Milany Primary #6 is lighter. MAC Love Cycle #2 is bluer. MAC Royale is lighter and purpler. OCC Technoir is lighter. Inglot #388 is purpler matte. See comparison swatches here.

Sweet Dreams was soft but powdery, and it applied best dry, as it crumbled on itself and created an uneven application applied damp, even though it seems smoother. It was noticeably faded after eight hours of wear (no primer).

Pool Party had so-so color payoff applied dry but amped up a lot when applied damp. The glitter did fall out during application and later on during wear, but it is not jam-packed with glitter, so the fall out isn’t as noticeable as it can be with other glittery eyeshadows. The underlying color lasted well for eight hours and was slightly faded after nine hours (no primer).

My Boyfriend’s Jeans had the same color payoff both wet and dry, and the finish seemed to stay the same, too–the damp application was slightly smoother but the difference was quite minimal between the two applications. I didn’t have any trouble with this shade’s wear, even after nine hours–no fading or creasing.

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.

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!

Sigh… these swatches remind me what I’m missing out on by not having access to Sephora here 🙁 My Boyfriend’s Jeans looks particularly beautiful! Also, loving the new layout, especially the way the dupes are now displayed. Fantastic!

Thank you! Do you think three sets are too many showing at once?

Our biggest struggle is dealing with multi-shade/product reviews in a single post, because it can get long with multiple Glossovers, Dupe Lists, etc.! Right now we have it so three show, and any more will produce a “click for more” reveal button so only if you care will you have to see all of ’em!

I don’t think it’s too many. It looks professional and clean. I think if you did more than, say five, that is when it would start to look too clustered. This new layout is phenominal! I love being able to compare shades side by side.

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!
