Sephora Cool PRO Eyeshadow Palette

Cool

Sephora Cool PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 1.12 oz.) contains 28 eyeshadows in a “cool” color story. I would describe it as more of a neutral-to-cool palette; there were a few warmer shades in the palette, but there were a lot of more mauve, pink, and muted shades. While 28 shades is a lot, I was surprised that there was some overlap in the pink shades, and it didn’t seem as versatile to me as I was using it to come up with different color combinations (merely an observation and has no impact on the rating). There were a couple severe misses in the palette coupled with a lot of so-so quality eyeshadows that made this palette underwhelming at the end.

The formula is supposed to feature “high pigment, high performance” with long wear and better adhesion. The matte shades were often powdery with some seeming chalky–I had a lot of looks turn a bit gray or muddy along the edges after using a shade above the crease or on the brow bone. The shimmers varied from smooth, creamy, and dense (with noticeable silicone) or drier, looser, and there were some glitter shades that felt more like loose sand than a usable product. The latter was barely salvaged with a glitter adhesive, but they could not be solved with fingertips or a damp brush.

I know there has been a lot of buzz about the new Sephora PRO palettes, but I did not find the eyeshadow formula to be that easy to work with as quality varied too much between shades, they applied lighter/darker than they appeared in the pan, and there was considerable fallout (and yes, I did tap off excess product prior to applying!). Even when I tried the formula over a primer, I was less impressed; sometimes, I felt like the eyeshadows were easier to control over bare skin! I’ve actually been a fan of Sephora’s Colorful Eyeshadows since they released them several years ago, including the reformulation, but these are substantially different (which some may prefer).

$68 is a higher price point for palettes, but for most mid-end brands, it seems in line with the size of the palette–each shade is almost as much the average single, full-size eyeshadow. Sephora’s house brand isn’t high-end, and it sometimes comes in lower than mid-end with respect to product pricing, but it seems to float around there. Using Sephora’s Colorful Eyeshadow (different formula) as a point of comparison, each shade retails for $10.00 and contains 0.07 oz. or $142.86/oz. The palette retails for $68.00 and contains 1.12 oz. or $60.71/oz. Here are some other pricing comparisons of a few mid-end/high-end palettes:

  • Sephora PRO Eyeshadow Palette: $68.00 for 1.12 oz. or $60.71/oz.
  • Too Faced Natural Love: $59.00 for 0.90 oz. or $65.56/oz.
  • Tarte Tarteist Palette: $53.00 for 0.70 oz. or $75.71/oz.
  • Ciate Pretty, Fun, & Fearless: $42.00 for 0.52 oz. or $80.77/oz.
  • Too Faced Sweet Peach: $49.00 for 0.54 oz. or $90.74/oz.

Linen

Linen is a soft beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the coverage was reduced in practice as the consistency was rather powdery and prone to sheering out (as well as to having fallout!). The color wore well for seven hours on me.

Powder is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a powdery consistency that was prone to fallout and sheering out very easily. I felt like it was harder to control exactly where it applied, and it had a tendency to turn the brown shades in the palette grayish. It lasted well for seven hours on me.

Tulle

Tulle is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a glittery finish. It was more like looser glitter than a standalone eyeshadow as it appeared to have no pigmentation other than the sparkle. The texture was very dry, loose, and came away like sugar granules. There was no wearing this alone–it applied with virtually no adhesion, so it was an exercise in frustration as I would pat it on and find it all underneath the lid instead.

Latte is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation that applied fairly well to bare skin with only a bit of fallout, as the texture was on the more powdery side (but finely-milled and velvety to the touch).

Violet Gray

Violet Gray is a soft, medium-dark lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation in two to three layers. The consistency was incredibly soft and finely-milled but quite powdery, which made it messier to use in the palette and on the lid. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Cashmere

Cashmere is a light peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. I noticed this shade darkened one to two shades on my lid (did not seem to darken on my arm, though). The consistency was soft but rather powdery with a tendency to sheer out and drop powder onto anything below it, even after tapping away excess product on the brush. It had good pigmentation, though, and wore well for seven hours on me.

Fog

Fog is a muted, medium gray with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a very powdery, dusty consistency that was prone to fallout during application (even after tapping away excess!). It did not improve over a primer–the best use I could find for it was to diffuse a deeper shade so the lack of pigmentation was an asset rather than a detriment. This shade started to fade noticeably after six hours of wear.

Graphite

Graphite is a medium-dark gray with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, velvety texture that was somewhat powdery in the pan but was not too difficult or frustrating to use. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Heather Grey

Heather Grey is a soft, medium pink-mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was noticeably powdery with a lot of excess product that kicked up in the pan, and this contributed to making it harder to apply evenly and with full coverage to the lid, as it would sheer out as soon as I started to work with it. The eyeshadow stayed on well for seven hours.

Mauve

Mauve is a brighter, medium-dark pinky-berry with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was drier to the touch but had less excess powder that came away from the pan, so it was easier to work with on the lid. The eyeshadow blended out well and lasted for eight hours.

Moon

Moon appeared as a medium-dark taupe brown with a glittery finish, but it was more like a light taupe as it was so sheer. The consistency was dense, drier, and felt like it had large chunks of glitter. It was difficult to apply, whether I used fingertips or a dampened brush, as so little product seemed to adhere to the lid. There was fallout while worn, and it seemed to wear for six hours, at most (it was hard to determine given the sheerness).

Obsidian

Obsidian is a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage using a second layer of product. The consistency was soft, smooth, and just a touch drier (but less powdery) than other shades in the palette. It blended out without too much work but was not the most blendable black eyeshadow I’ve used. The color wore well for eight hours on me.
