Sephora Pastel Pop Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Sephora Pastel Pop Eyeshadow Palette 13

The Sephora Pastel Pop Eyeshadow Palette blinded me with sparkle recently. This sweet little palette is topped with eight shadows with matte and sparkle finishes.

At a glance I thought it was the ideal solution for me to enjoy mattes with my favorite finish, sparkle. I know, I’m kinda defeating the purposes of matte if I’m adding sparkle on top but gimme a break, I’m so anti-matte.

Sonia Kashuk Moroccan Dunes Eye Shadow Palette Spring 2013

Sonia, I’d love to sit down with you and discuss the magic behind your Moroccan Dunes Eyeshadow Palette. How exactly did you create a stunning metallic eyeshadow palette like this that actually has a metallic finish…? Share with us please!

This stunning Sonia Kashuk Moroccan Dunes Eye Shadow Palette ($16.99) is available for a limited time this Spring and has four jaw dropping metallic eyeshadows that leave frost behind and embrace a true metallic finish.

I dunno about you but I run across so many metallic eyeshadows that look incredible in the pan but they apply with a way frosty finish on my lids however, this palette actually applies with a true metallic finish that will look incredible with a tan if that’s your game look of choice for the Spring/Summer season.

Wet n Wild Going in the Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Going in the Wild

Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette in Going in the Wild is one of two limited edition palettes that were introduced recently for Spring. I know they’ve proved a little difficult to find and hope to hear you’ve had success locating them. Each one contains six shades for $4.99 each.

I located both of mine at Harmons but the display was pretty much wiped out really quickly. I’m hearing some folks had success at CVS so good luck finding them everyone and when all else fails Evil-bay is your friend for hardcore lemmings.

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Review & Swatches

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes 1

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Palettes launched a bit ago but I never actually reviewed them. I fear Japanese brands sometimes have repetitive colors in new eyeshadow palettes which somehow I’ve grown out of. I mean I get excited when KATE does a new palette but typically they release that new palette in the same shades over and over again so it starts to feel like the same exact thing to me.

Can’t believe I just said that as I’m all about KATE Eyeshadow but it is true. Lavshuca is guilty of similiar.

KATE is one (only) of Kanebo’s edger brands. It’s marked with a goth-y feel but the actual makeup is very tame and natural. Jewelry Mode Eyes is a simpler palette compared to some of KATE’s normal range of eyeshadow palettes as it contains merely three shades versus five. Honestly, as much as I love a range of shades to play with I find Jewelry Mode Eyes simplifies eyeshadow application which I’m cool with. Especially in the morning when I just don’t have the time or the patience to use five different eyeshadow shades in a single look.
