Sephora Pro Lesson Palette For Green Eyes - Review

Sunday, October 23, 2011





At the end of summer, some Sephora's palettes caught my attention because I was looking for fall colors and some other glittery eyeshadows. Two palettes were very interesting, the Sephora Collection Pro Lesson Palette: Green Eyes and Sephora Collection Moonshadow Baked Palette - In The Nude. I will make a full review on the second palette in another post. 




This Sephora Collection Pro Lesson Palette is particularly recommended for beginners. The palette is illustrated with two lessons to help you create your day and your night look.
It's very easy to follow and with all six colors and the dark brown pencil eyeliner, the combinations are endless ... There are 4 different palettes, for green eyes,  for brown eyes with warm brown and purple smokey shades, for blue eyes with beige natural shadows, bleu and gray eyeshadows and the last one, the smokey palette in brown and black versions.

As you can notice I don't have green eyes but I think purple is very flattering for all eye colors and it's pretty for asian "yellow" skin tone. I am not a big fan of green colors on my eyes but these shadows are wearable. These are not apple green or green grass, these shadows are some beautiful autumn shades, a bit more subtile! 



All these colors are very intense, so be careful and blend well! 


The tutorial says: "Apply this natural beige on all over the lid, then apply this dark green on the lid and apply the olive in the crease area. Blend and extend color outward toward the brow and to finish, with the pencil, draw a line along upper lashes and apply your favorite mascara."

Very easy to say but I don't have a crease, us, monolid girls! It's almost the same technique for our special shape. Use the gradient technique, it is the easiest way to have a good makeup application.

The lightest colors is always the nearest from the brows and the darkest is the closest from the upper lash line. The intermediaire color is in the middle :)



I picked this palette because of these colors. I love love love this black purple (my fave), the burgundy shade is also amazing and the shimmery/glittery taupe pop up the look, especially for night looks.




The tutorial says: "Line upper and lower lash line with black purple, blend shadow from the upper lash line into crease. Apply burgundy in the crease, blend and extand color outward toward the broww. Highlight by applying ice beige under the brow and on the inner corner of both eyes. Apply eyeliner...then mascara"
I did a night look with these eyeshadows if you want to see some pictures, it's here and the video is here but my technique is a bit different. I didn't use the black purple like that and use another eyeshadow for the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes because their glittery beige is more a taupe color and too dark for an highlighter to my mind.



These eyeshadows are very intense, creamy and easy to apply but you will need to apply a primer as a base because it is chalky (you will have some fallouts) and they smudge a little bit. The eyeliner is a good creamy dark brown liner. I writes and glides well. Compared to some high-end brand, it works pretty well.


Overall: ♡♡♡♡/5

Pros:

+ Two full looks, day and night.
+ Intense, creamy and easy to blend.
+ Fall shades.

Cons:

- Chalky
- Smudge is you don't use a primer as a base.

Neat review!! Love how you're always so detailed and take awesome pics. I never really liked Sephora eyeshadows but this one seem pretty good.

@Vivian,Thanks. I only have one black eyeshadow from sephora which is completely different in term of consistency. The new formula is very better than the regular ones.

I love the taupe, burgundy and dark purple shade! Looks like they make a great eyeshadow combo. (Taupe on the lids, burgundy on the crease and dark purple on the outer v) Thanx for the swatches. <3
