Yay or Nay: Sephora Colorful Duo Eyeshadow

Sephora Eye Shadow Duo

Its no big secret that I’m NOT the biggest Sephora Makeup fan in the world. However, I will admit the new Sephora Colorful Duo Eyeshadows caught my eye. I love duos because they make contrasting easy as cake and ice cream and I’m guessin’ that’s why I was all eyes when when I seen these from Sephora.

Yay or Nay?

Sadly, gotta go with nay! They look nice enough and I could even possibly be swayed to buy one or two but sadly the $16 price tag makes them a big nay for me. For that price I could go high end.

What do you think?

Yay it or Nay it, the choice is yours!

    Question should be Why?
    Why spend C$21 on a house brand eyeshadow that is chalky and has poor colour payoff -__-
    For that price, you can get a MAC shadows…

    Nay. Sephora really needs to get rid of the store line. I don’t understand how the Kat VonD line could be so nice while the Sephora brand is so bad. It may be fine for a non junkie. But that’s really not their core shopper.

    Just found your site and it is great!
    On another note: I’m not a fan of Sephora makeup either so I doubt I will be purchasing any of these!

    I agree–for the price, I probably would go for something else. The only reason I have ever been enticed to go with the Sephora brand is because it’s usually cheaper, so if I can get another brand for a similar price, it is not likely I will go with the Sephora version.

      me either stephanie particularly when I can get mac. Sephora is hit and miss, occasionally they come up with a real winner but must say its a tad over priced at times!

    hmmm,yay! i think if people never try something they will never know what it is like.I’m willing to try it,even though the price is quite obscene (cheaper=amazing mac shadows) i think that just cuz someone has bas expierences with a brand they shoudnt give up! ( i think of it as getting the crappy stuff out of the way,and then everything else might be amazing,you never know!) oh, well everyone has their veiws.LOVE YA MUSE,happy weekend chica! ;D

    I would have to say nay.
    The in-store brand should always be cheaper since it has to compete with the better and well known brands.

    First off, too many Donnas up in here. :)

    I have personally never tried Sephora brand eyeshadows. But for me, Kat VonD’s shadows were the suck. I got one of the palettes when they first came out, Beethoven I think? I’m too lazy to look it up. The purpley one. The shadows had a decent formula, but not fabulous. And the color payoff was meh. All the purples were grayish. I’m sorry, I am not a KVD for Sephora fan. In my humble opinion, I think they really were Sephora brand shadows repackaged in a fancy palette.

    I say yay. I have this duo and it is absolutely perfect. I usually wear MAC shadows-and to blend them I need 2 shadows at $15 each. With this, I can get 2 shadows that blend together perfectly-for only a dollar more than one MAC shadow. I absolutely love Sephora brand shadows. They can make such subtle or such vibrant colors and they stay on all day! They’re so easy to blend with other shadows too! :)

    I’m not a big fan of Sephora make up too (but I like some of the colorful eyeshadows… when they are on sale XD I had the chance of buying some of them for 3 euros each – usually they costs like… 11 euro here in Italy? something like that), but I have to tell I like this one.
    I didn’t purhased it yet because the price is really something, but I like it and I hope they will discount it someday ^^
