Review: SEPHORA COLLECTION Desert Sunset Eyeshadow and Blush Palette

As a kid, don't you just love receiving art sets that had crayons, oil pastels, markers, watercolor, glitter glue, color pencils and some more art tools. I remember attending kiddie parties with my siblings and bringing home at least 2 of those. Now that I'm older, makeup palettes have replaced those sets.

I got the Sephora Collection Desert Sunset Eyeshadow from Makeup Haul PH on Instagram. I was looking for a palette that I could use when traveling and this palette is just perfect. It's really compact and it's great for traveling. I love that it has a mix of shimmery and matte colors that are perfect for day to night looks.

According to the website:
What it is:
A palette of 12 fashionable and flattering eye shadows, perfectly paired with a pink blush and a glowing bronzer. 

The product is actually cheap at $16 and I'm surprised about the pigmentation, I'm also surprised that it's not chalky. I tried to wear this out with no primer and it lasted me almost 4 hours without creasing.The packaging is simple, it's just a hard cardboard sealed with a magnet. The shimmery shades are very pigmented without looking too messy. The three colors on the third row are my favorite. The third color is actually a dark emerald green with gold shimmers to it. The gold and bronze shades also look great and the colors remind me of the Naked 2 palette. The matte shades weren't as pigmented though, especially the light pink color. I was hesitant about the blush because it had shimmers, but the shimmers were subtle and it gave a dewy glow, it was a perfect natural bronze and it didn't look orangey. The blush wasn't as pigmented. 


Some of the colors are actually more vibrant in person. The camera wasn't doing any justice.
 These were taken without primer and under natural day light.
  • Cheaper than most Sephora palettes
  • Pigmentation is great
  • Mirror included is useful
  • Not chalky
  • Formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates
  • Only available online
  • Limited looks can be created
Will I repurchase? No, but I'd love to try other Sephora Collection palettes.

Overall: This is a really great palette especially for beginners, but I wouldn't repurchase. If you're looking for something good to invest on, this isn't the palette for you.

I also got this as a freebie
