Sometimes when I’m opening up a package of press samples, I come across a certain product that makes me gasp, cross my fingers and hope that it’s half as good as the way it looks. This beautiful, studded eyeshadow palette did just that. The new Sephora Eye Graphic 4 Colors Palette ($24 USD / $26 CAD) in Smoky Burgundy is edgy, chic and totally breathtaking. The best part? The quality is out of this world.
I couldn’t wait to get my grubby swatching fingers all over these eyeshadows as soon as laid eyes on them, and the moment I touched them… I knew there was something different about them. They felt much more creamy then I had felt before, almost like they had already been moistened as if you were about to foil them. Then I read about them (I know, it’s backwards… I always like to dig into the product, then read the press information) and it said they feature an innovative, hybrid formula combining the softness of a cream with the intensity of a powder. Ding ding ding! I was correct!
The four shades in this palette are stunning, and flow together beautifully too. The palette features a rich burgundy, a golden beige, a deep charcoal taupe and a sparkling grey. The palette is predominantly shimmery, with Beige and Dark Grey being a little more on the glittery side. The palette features a gorgeous studded compact with a large interior mirror. The eyeshadow placement is simplistic and perfect to slimline the packaging.
Not only do the eyeshadows feel as if they have been moistened with water as if you were about to foil them, but they apply as rich, smooth and metallic as if you were foiling them. It’s so unique- I’ve never come across powder eyeshadows this moist and rich before. The closest would have to be the bareMinerals READY eyeshadows… but even these take the cake over those. Just look at the swatch photos- those were applied dry!!! I would still recommend using a primer underneath to prevent creasing. They blend flawlessly, and I think the color choice in this palette is incredible… that rich burgundy will make such an amazing twist to a smoky eye!
It’s been a while since I’ve gotten so excited about an eyeshadow palette- let alone a Sephora eyeshadow palette! Kudos, Sephora… you’ve really stepped up your game and this palette is absolutely amazing. I hope to see more of this hybrid formula in the future. I can’t wait to do a look with this palette!
