Sephora Pantone Color Code Prismatic Shadow Block Review & Swatches
And since it is on sale now is a good a time of any to discuss it!
I swear the Sephora Pantone Color Code Prismatic Shadow Block is one of the most challenging makeup products I’ve ever run across. And it isn’t due to the formula..
Release with the Sephora Pantone Emerald Capsule Collection this solid block of creamy eyeshadow can be used all over your lids or even as a face or lip product as well!
This cream shadow is richly pigmented and can be used as an all over color product (you may or may not want to run around with it on your cheeks and lips, if so, you can do so!). The water resistant formula sets to a budget proof finish but still has an easy to use creamy consistency that blends out easily and doesn’t have too quick a set time so you have a nice minute to play around with it and work with it before it dries down.
Now my issue…
It is a dramatic emerald green and oh so pigmented but lord knows I had a difficult time incorporating it into a look. All over my eyes it’s a bit TOO much green….! I guess the shade runs cooler and doesn’t have that warmth you’d get from a khaki or an olive green (both of these shades work to add POP to my brown eyes). It just doesn’t quite work for me and even after considering adding a little brown to contrast the shade I decided against it as brown simply was working with it….! I think all over my lids it’s a bit too outrageous…
So yeah, challenging…!
If you’re a FOND fan of emerald though this block of color is huge and you can create a ton of looks using it plus the formula is easy to work with, wears strong, and doesn’t crease throughout the day.
However, some might feel like I did and that was a just big shrug as to what I couldn’t possible do with a shade like this!? I think it might be safe to say Tangerine Tango was more my girl!
It’s on sale now for $11 at Sephora and Sephora.com.
HOW would YOU use the shade?
