Sephora Prisma Chrome Shadow in Sapphire Shine

Look at that shape, wow!!

Without flash and a bit of liquid liner & mascara


Last week, I was on a mission. To spend my Sephora gift card from Christmas. I walked into the Sephora on Lexington ave in New York, and there was a huge front display of Sephora-brand eyeshadows called Prisma Chrome. In the past, I haven't really been a huge fan of Sephora-brand products. I've owned a few, and haven't been blown away.

But I saw these eyeshadows and couldn't get over how freakin cool they looked. I mean come on, LOOK at that shape! It's shimmery! And two-toned! And just all around awesome-looking.

I picked the purpley/blue color called Sapphire Shine. Normally I would reach for the green or gold shades, so I tried to go out of my comfort zone and try this color. The shadow itself has a good amount of pigment, and has the prettiest shimmer/sheen to it! It's ethereal without being overly glittery and hookerish. Like I said, the color is a bit out of my comfort zone (my boyfriend thought it was blue, which definitely freaked me out - all I could think of is 80's makeup) but I do like it. I think the little bit of black liner and mascara pulled the look together and helped me to avoid looking like that girl.

Overall, I like it - the texture, staying power, etc. I want to try different looks with it - maybe laying it on top of a darker purple or something? To be continued...

What do you guys think? Anyone else try these shadows yet?
