Sephora Editorial PRO Eyeshadow Palette

Editorial

Sephora Editorial PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 1.12 oz.) contains 28 eyeshadows in vibrant hues and varying textures. This palette is definitely more of a complementary palette than a standalone one; it will work best paired with more cohesive palettes (like the Cool or Warm palettes), though of course, it can be used on its own. It will just be a lot more versatile when used alongside other palettes! I think that this palette is usable with primer and is best with a very light or white base to ensure the truest color payoff and intensity for the majority of brighter matte shades.

Also, I was surprised at some of the brightness/richness in the hues in the palette, as I have only typically seen that vibrancy in shades that were, consequently, labeled as not safe for the “eye area” in the U.S. (typically allowed in Canada and the EU). I reviewed the ingredient list for this one, and my understanding is that “Yellow 6 Lake” is D&C Yellow No. 6 AI Lake, which is listed as “No” for use on the “Eye Area.” This was true with Red 28 Lake (D&C Red No. 28 AI Lake), Red 7 Lake (D&C Red. No. 7), and Red 6 Lake (D&C Red No. 6). These ingredients may be found in these shades: Chris, Porcelain, Tangerine, Amy, Jeffery, Eliza D, Helen P, Tiila, Myiesha, Shawn, and ELectric Violet. You can find color additive information from the FDA here. I could not find any information on my Sephora palette, the included insert that walked through looks (that included instructions to use some of those shades specifically on the eye area), or online. The palette is specifically referenced as a “deluxe eyeshadow palette” and a “PRO eyeshadow palette.” I think that brands should more clearly label or include warnings so that consumers can make an informed decision for themselves. If it’s a non-issue for one person but a deal-breaker for the other, I’m good either way, just as long as the information is there.

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 usable product. The latter was barely salvage 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.

Porcelain

Porcelain is a bright white with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was buildable over a primer or base but not on bare skin as it was incredibly powdery and prone to sheering out. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me.

Julie T

Julie T is a pale white with a green shift and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan. This shade worked well on its own or layered over another shade to transform it. On me, the eyeshadow lasted for eight hours before creasing faintly.

Ice

Ice is a very like, silvery white with glitter. It had sheer, barely-there coverage with a loose consistency that made the glitter get everywhere on the lid. With a dampened brush, it still did not go well, and the only way to work with it was using an adhesive base or patting over a cream eyeshadow.

Silver Coin

Silver Coin is a bright silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that did not build up well without a tacky base under it (regular primer was not enough). I’m not sure why this shade was included given that Ice, while it had larger glitter particles, had a similar effect–I don’t think the palette needed both. This shade stayed on well for seven hours.

Tangerine

Tangerine is a bright, light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic, while the consistency was smooth, velvety, and very blendable on the lid. It applied evenly to bare skin and did not sheer out like a lot of other mattes have from these palettes. The eyeshadow wore well for just over eight hours.

Amy

Amy is a bright, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a smooth, velvety texture that kicked up some excess in the pan but was not too powdery overall. I did find that it had a tendency to apply more unevenly and did not blend as easily over bare skin–it needed primer to function well. This shade lasted for eight hours and stained my lid slightly.

Champagne

Champagne is a brighter, light gold with slightly warm, yellow undertones paired with a glittery, metallic finish. The texture was denser and felt creamier, so it ended up having good pigmentation despite having a more glittery texture and feel in the pan. There was some fallout throughout wear without applying it damp or using an adhesive base over the eight hours it lasted.

Jeffery

Jeffery is a bright, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was difficult to build up without a white base. The texture was powdery and prone to sheering out, but it was thin and as a result, applied unevenly as some of it would appear darker in places. It lasted for six hours at most.

Helen P

Helen P is a soft aqua blue with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The texture was quite powdery and almost chalky, so it did not perform well on bare skin at all and could only work decently over a white base. It had semi-opaque coverage but sheered out too quickly to stay that way on the lid. This shade lasted for six hours on me–from what I could tell.

Grass

Grass is a medium green with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The consistency was fairly soft without kicking up any excess product in the pan. It had good color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without issues. This shade wore well for eight hours.

Shawn

Shawn is a muted, medium-dark teal with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, while the consistency was dusty and prone to kicking up a ton of excess product in the pan. This resulted in sheerer application that went on unevenly. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Chris

Chris is a rich, cobalt blue with cool, almost violet, undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented, but it was only after working away the top layer, which revealed a smoother, more velvety powder–I only happened to notice because it was exceptionally terrible initially but my photo did not turn out well and I had to re-swatch… and it was completely different. I did struggle to use it over bare skin, though, as it was difficult to blend out along the edges for a nice, diffused edge. The color itself wore well for eight hours on me.

Dina is a medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was slightly drier, which made the edges of the eyeshadow appear more dragged out and ragged with less of a blended edge. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Pink Quartz

Pink Quartz is a light, rosy beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a smoother, almost cream-like texture that was moderately dense and binded better together than expected. I did have some fallout over an eight-hour period, but it was a lot less than I would have imagined. I would recommend using this with an adhesive spray or base, though.

Wendy G

Wendy G is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was soft but drier in the pan, where the larger flecks of sparkle seemed to separate from the base powder. I had the best luck applying this with a dampened brush, which helped it bind better and apply more evenly to the lid. There was still some fallout over the eight hours it lasted for, though.

Karoline

Karoline is a medium-dark copper brown with warm, red undertones and a glittery finish. The texture had noticeable flecks of larger glitter, so it was not a shade that applied well (or lasted without fallout) on its own. Again, this is one I would use with an adhesive base or with a dampened brush. I could use a dampened brush to apply it better but still had moderate fallout over an eight-hour period.
