My favourite part of any collection is the eyeshadow palettes. I’m sure that’s not a surprise to anyone. So when the Sephora Collection holiday items came out, I immediately started eyeing the eyeshadows. I was lucky enough to get one as a PR sample, and then my Canadian Beauty Blogger Secret Santa gave me another one! Yay! So I have two to share today.

Sephora Collection Matte Metallic Eye Palette and The Enchanting Palette

I have the Matte Metallic Eye Palette and The Enchanting Palette. Both palettes feature light and bright shades that offer sparkle and fun to any look, day or night.

They are both packaged in thin sturdy cardboard palette with magnetic closures. The exterior packages are pink and gold, with some texture.

Inside, the products are housed in triangle and diamond shaped wells, which makes lining things up for swatches difficult, but it looks so pretty in the package. The Matte Metallic Eye Palette has a full mirror inside, while The Enchanting Palette does not.

Looking at the Sephora Collection Matte Metallic Eye Palette first, this is a mixed performance. The top row of shadows are patchy without primer, but work quite nicely with primer. The metallic shadows in the centre are gorgeous and worth the double size. The bottom row is a good neutral collection that helps provide depth and dimension for the star products.

This palette can be used to create complete eye looks, which is important. There are multiple options which will work for both day and night.

Moving to the Sephora Collection The Enchanting palette, this is a face and eye palette. There are 2 brow shades (nice cool shades that will work for multiple brow colours, and also work as contour shades), a blush (pretty peachy pink), 2 highlight shades (bright and shimmery) and 6 eyeshadows. The performance of these eyeshadows is really nice, although the selection seems to run on the dark side.

I really like the face section of this palette, but am disappointed in the shadows. There just isn’t any colour there. It’s all very bland. Even if just one of the brownish shades was switched for a dark green, the selection would have seem very different.

  1. Your line that “the selection seems to run on the dark side” made me laugh and nearly spit out my tea. Sounds like the eyeshadows are evil or something!

    • LOL! I never even thought of it that way, but it does sound evil. Obviously my son’s Star Wars influence is rubbing off on me.
