This holiday season SEPHORA has really come through with their holiday blockbuster. The SEPHORA Collection Color Wonderland Eye Palette is a must-have for any beauty and makeup junkie. It contains 78 eye shadows, 2 pencils, one double-ended brush, and a mirror in each section. The shades are divided into 2 sides: neutral shades and vivid shades. One of the eye pencils is matte black and the other is gunmetal shimmer. There are two shades that are used the most, and they are in larger pans. Those two shades are a base shade in the neutral section and a highlight shade in the vivid section. To make it fun and interesting they have made some of the shades larger than the others. But only a few of them.
The eye shadows have great pigment. I was pleasantly surprised at how pigmented they are. Not only the darker shadows but the lighter shadows have pretty good pigmentation too. I love the color spectrum too. With 78 eye shadows, you get a very good representation of colors to play with. My only complaint about the eye shadows in this palette is that there is some fallout with the colors. I notice it with the darker colors the most. That is to be expected with matte shades, they usually have more fallout than shimmer shades. The matte shades are not too chalky but kind of creamy which makes them easy to work with. The two eye pencils included wear very well and are great starter colors to work with too. The matte black pencil is excellent to make a smoky eye and the gunmetal shimmer also works well to do lighter smoky eye and they both are very creamy. These eye pencils are some of the best around.

I have been using this eye shadow palette for weeks now, coming up with all kinds of color combinations and looks. Below are the looks I have been doing with this eye palette:
I think this palette would make a great gift for someone who is interest in makeup, beauty or buy it for yourself. It is a great palette. As I mentioned, the eye shadows have great pigmentation, which makes it a great deal. The only drawback is some fallout and it’s not that much. These shadows are easy to work with, they go on smoothly and stay all day with primer. I also adore the eye pencils.
The SEPHORA Collection Color Wonderland Eye Palette retails for $59.00 and is available at SEPHORA stores now.
