I had a deluxe sample of Aspen Summit from a Sephora Birthday Gift some years back. It was a really frosty white shade that worked well as an accent on the lid, and it was really pretty, if maybe a bit chunky.
I decided to buy a full size in the shade Smell of Roses, after swatching it at Sephora and finding it to be quite beautiful. Urban Decay used to have an eyeshadow called Cherry, which they have since discontinued, and I thought that this would be a good replacement.
Sadly, when I brought the shade home and started playing with it, it was nowhere near as pigmented as it was inthe store. It not only looked completely different, but even the texture was off. It felt extremely stiff and gritty, and it was very hard to build up on my eyes. Granted, it's a very pale colour to begin with -- a ballerina pink wwith glitter, to be exact -- but it barely shows up, and the glitter has a tendency to go all over my face, even after setting down a primer. I've tried using it with a wet brush and it's not any better. I don't know how the colour could have looked and felt so different in the tester.
The only reason I would consider recommending their eyeshadows at all, or even consider buying another one myself, is because I hear they've reformulated and a lot of people are preferring the new formula. The mattes and satins, in particular, are supposed to be amazing.
I use this because it's their house brand of eyeshadow I liked it, wears well, the only bad thing is made in china quality is quite good.
I don't wear makeup everyday but I really like this stuff. Doesn't fade off by the end of the day! Sephora usually has helpful staff and is good for sensitive skin. Great colour palate - lots to choose from whichever your eye colour is or your fave look
I love this eyeshadow, I use the one I have as a base and I tend to use an eyeshadow I have from another brand over top, but on the odd day that I want a change I use all sephora eyeshadows and they are great, I find they dont crease, smear, smudge, fade etc.etc. I know that when I go out somewhere that I wont be able to go check the mirror that I can trust that this eyeshadow is still there and still as bright and great looking as when I put it on. I like the texture, I find it very silky and goes on really easily. I definately recommend this eyeshadow!!
Sephora's everyshadows work great and the price is very reasonable as well.
I got this little beauty as part of Sephora's Beauty Insiders Club birthday gift.
(If you haven't signed up for this, I really recommend it! I got a free kit with eye liner, eye shadow and mascara just because it was my birthday! Search it online- And the best part is, they just opened one in London ON!!).
This little eye shadow is pretty good, especially considering it was free. It's compact, so great for my makeup bag when travelling. It's a light white-silver colour which I like to use to highlight my brow bone. The only grip I have with it is that it doesn't go on as smoothly with a brush as it does on my finger. I gave up trying to use a brush with it and instead just swipe it on with my finger. It's highly pigmented so I only need to use a very small amount and I get the effect O want with just one layer.
