If you’re looking for that one palette this summer that will effortlessly allow you to create numerous looks and can easily take you from day to night, look no further than the new limited edition Sephora Collection Iconic Looks Makeup Palette. This clutch style palette contains 28 eyeshadows, 7 blushes and 7 lipglosses that allow you to create 7 different makeup looks inspired by the hottest fashion trends of the season.
Sephora Collection Iconic Looks Makeup Palette comes housed in a trendy, faux pink envelope style clutch, and contains everything you need to complete 7 different looks. It’s divided into trends, Bohemian, Safari, Vintage, Tropical, Urban Chic, Rock, and Glamour, and comes with a handy instruction booklet to make it easy to recreate each look. Each look is composed of 4 eyeshadows, a blush and a lipgloss in both matte, shimmery and glittery finishes and arranged vertically with the trend name above each row.
Sephora Collection Iconic Looks Makeup Palette has such a large selection of eyeshadows and blushes that it’s sure to keep you busy all summer long. Each shade is incredibly creamy, velvety and smooth, and applies like a dream. Even the lighter hues are extremely pigmented and truly opaque without having to work too hard at picking up each shade. They can, of course, be easily built up for a truer, richer, more intense look. They blend into one another beautifully with little to no fallout, even the shimmery shades, without becoming chalky or powdery. They stay put the entire day without creasing or fading, nor does the blush settle into fine lines or emphasize enlarged pores. The lipgloss complements the shadows and blush wonderfully, providing a high-shine finish that’s lightweight and comfortable to wear the entire day. They are a tad sticky and not truly opaque, but this is to be expected from palettes. It does add a sheer pop of colour to the lips and helps finish off the look. You’ll need a lip balm underneath if you’re looking for hydration, as these are pretty dry and not very moisturizing.
Unlike some traditional palettes with numerous colours, the Sephora Collection Iconic Looks Makeup Palette has surprisingly amazing quality shadows within. In fact, Sephora shadows are right up there with higher end shadows, but for a fraction of the cost. The pigmentation and quality of these shadows and blushes are spectacular. They’re buttery, smooth, and blend extremely well, with no fall out. The lipglosses are about average for a palette, not something I’d reach for on a daily basis, but handy to have when travelling. Whether you’re looking for a natural, intense, or sophisticated look, this palette has it all. It’s so versatile, easily taking you from office to date night. Start with the lighter shade all over the lid as your base, take the slightly deeper and darker shades for an all over lid shade and into the crease, and follow with the darkest shade on the outer-v (or double as a liner). This palette is truly unique and a must-have for summer for anyone that’s looking for a pop of colour in their daily routine. It retails for $43.
