Sephora Colorful Duo Reflects Colorful Eyeshadow ($13) recently launched in several limited edition shades for Spring 2015.
According to Sephora the Colorful Duo Reflects Colorful Eyeshadow formula offers a pearly intense multicolored shimmer that provides a deep color changing effect in certain lights. Basically these are supposed have a duochrome effect.
Take a look!
I only purchased the shade Hidden Treasure which I’m thankful for because originally I had almost all the shades in my cart but I decided I’d try one and if I liked them I’d purchase the others. The shadows come in a smaller black pot and are 0.07 oz in size with a mermaid scale design.
I’m glad I only got one as I didn’t like the formula and I didn’t feel that the one shade I did try didn’t really have a duochrome effect at all. They can be used wet or dry but I actually saw very little difference when using them this way.
Sephora Hidden Treasures Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is an olive green with golden shimmer. I LOVE shades like this as they work well with my brown eyes. However, I thought the formula was really dense and dry. I hated the texture unfortunately and I thought it was the main problem with the formula. I was shocked because typically Sephora has some very nice velvety textured shadows. But this kinda felt dry and sorta gritty with a bit of sparkly fall out. They apply best with sponge eyeshadow applicators as with a regular brush I had a hard time picking up color and building it.

Sephora Colorful Duo Reflects Colorful Eyeshadow Swatches (Hidden Treasure)
The color does not shift at all in my experience. If I apply i wet it does look a bit more foiled but again, the color doesn’t shift so I’m not really seeing the duochrome effect.
I thought maybe some of the other shades would prove better but Hidden Treasures kinda made me wary to retry others as this particular shade disappointed!
I’m just happy I didn’t purchase all the shades in one go.
