Sephora Collection Sunbleached Filter Palette

Sephora Collection Sunbleached Filter Palette

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 BoudoirA matte cream shade. Ideal for all placing over the lid to act as a base.

Walking In The SandA warm matte peach shade. Ideal for creating a a warm transition, or to clean up over blended edges.

SwellA 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.

Selfiea shimmery bronze shade. Ideal for applying on the lid.

Sunbleached Filter Eyeshadow Palette – Right Side

LatergramA shimmery orange/peachy shade. An intensely pigmented shade which can be over blended easily as it is quite soft. Ideal for over the lid.

WhitewashedA 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 ToesA 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 SongA semi-matte, cool tone pink based white shade. Ideal for applying as a base, all over the lid, or as a brow highlight.


Have you ever tried the Sunbleached Filter palette?

    I love how they came up with this palette. Without even knowing the background, I love the shades. But now that I know it’s a great social media filter color scheme, I’d love to try it and see what happens!

    I agree with you, Sephora has been killing it. I’ve enjoyed the Sephora collection since I first stepped into a Sephora in Paris in 2001! I purchased a lipstick. Can hardly believe that it was so long ago, lol.

    I’m actually one of those people who don’t frequent the Sephora part of the store but I’m thinking I need to start! I didn’t even know they did palettes! The shadows are certainly vibrant though it’s a shame about the fall out!

      I hear you, but you can always return products from Sephora too.

    Honestly I haven’t tried much from Sephora own brand with the exception to their lip creams. I have a couple of their single eyeshadows but haven;t play around much with them.

    I haven’t seen this palette before but the mix of shades is quite nice. I particularly like secret boudoir and walking in the sand because it can be quite hard to find good neutrals or transition shades in drugstore palettes 🙂 xx

      It is actually Sephora brand. Their name brand, but not drug store prices. If only it was! haha

    I love Sephoras own brand, that is no secret, but I am usually not drawn to palettes.
    But speaking of Sephora, I started digging in the goodies I receieved and I just adore the Bite Beauty lipsticks! All shades are great to wear, and three out of four are perfect for my complexion.
