Sephora has been killing it with the makeup game recently. It has gotten to the point where I tend to head to the Sephora Collection section first. Therefore when I saw the Sunbleached Filter palette over the summer time, the soft delicate tones drew me.
The Sephora Collection Sunbleached Filter eyeshadow palette, $36.00, is inspired by editing software in social media. With a technological spin on the picture-perfect filter, the palette features 10 shades which create a soft, neutral glow. The packing is gorgeous with sun exposed artwork on the cover, surrounded by sturdy black material. The inside of the palette holds a full sized quality mirror, while complimentary shades are placed together to create your own soft look.
To be completely honest, while I did purchase the palette due to its graceful shades, I was worried I may need to return it. However, the eyeshadows, while slightly powdery, are rich and pigmented. They all blended easily, while lasting all day without fading. That being said, it does have quite a bit of fallout, though, due to its light tones, brushes away easily.
One major con I found was the shades were very true to their pan. This means those with light, to medium-light skin tones may take issue with the palette as a whole as they may not show vibrantly on the skin. Nevertheless, the palette is meant to be delicate and it delivers.
Sunbleached Filter Eyeshadow Palette – Left Side
Secret Boudoir – A matte cream shade. Ideal for all placing over the lid to act as a base.
Walking In The Sand – A warm matte peach shade. Ideal for creating a a warm transition, or to clean up over blended edges.
Swell – A cool tone shimmer taupe shade. Ideal for applying on the lid to catch the light.
#tbt – a matte, deep cool tone brown. As it is the darkest shade, blending isn’t as easy as the remainder of the palette. However it does not require a lot of effort. Ideal for darkening the crease or outer V.
Selfie – a shimmery bronze shade. Ideal for applying on the lid.
Sunbleached Filter Eyeshadow Palette – Right Side
Latergram – A shimmery orange/peachy shade. An intensely pigmented shade which can be over blended easily as it is quite soft. Ideal for over the lid.
Whitewashed – A matte, light yellow shade. Sadly this one was the worst shade of the bunch. It isn’t as pigmented as the rest and therefore would need to be layered. Apply it all over the lid as a base to encourage blending.
Sandy Toes – A soft pink shimmer shade. My favourite shade from the palette as the pink is soft, and feminine. Ideal for applying over the lid.
Desert Rose – A satiny creamy peach shade. The smooth, creamy shade is ideal for creating a soft crease or for a darker transition.
Swan Song – A semi-matte, cool tone pink based white shade. Ideal for applying as a base, all over the lid, or as a brow highlight.
