Sephora Jungle Party (09) Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sparkling dark green.” It’s a dark blackened brown base with green and gold sparkle. It has a glitter finish, according to Sephora, though it is not quite as sparkly as some of the other glitter finishes in the range. MAC Smutty Green is somewhat similar when applied lightly, but it is ultimately much greener. I couldn’t think of anything else, but you could definitely try layering a shimmery green eyeshadow over a matte black eyeshadow.

I’m not a huge fan of Sephora’s glitter finish eyeshadows, because they absolutely do have fall out problems–some are worse than others–and this one is not the worst, but it does have some fall out during application and some more does present itself while the color is worn. The texture of Jungle Party is soft but a bit dry and powdery; it doesn’t blend out as readily as other shades in the range have. I find it is best applied with a damp brush, because then you can get the majority of the sparkle onto the lid instead of trapped in the brush or underneath the eye. Of course, the more that gets applied to the eye, the more you’ll see make its way below your eye during the day. I would say about half of the sparkle seemed to travel, as after ten hours, there was still noticeable sparkle on the lid. The glitter particles in Jungle Party seem more like sparkle in size; not as big as glitter, so it’s not as gritty, and I didn’t experience any irritation or watery eyes despite the fall out problems.
