Sephora Collection Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow

One of the latest trends I have noticed of late that cosmetic companies are taking eyeshadow formulas to the heights of innovation.  From Estee Lauder's Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow to M.A.C. Mega Metal Shadows, I just love the direction that eyeshadows are going these days.  Enter Sephora's Prisma Chrome Eyeshadows.

This limited edition collection, formulated without parabens, of 10 shades launched last week and is available at as well as in stores.
From Top to Bottom- Left to Right: Moon Glow, Bronze Brilliance, Purple Prisma; Second Row: Emerald Facet, Shimmery Sand
Top Row - Left to Right: Sapphire Shine, Moon Beam, Black Diamond; Second Row - Burgundy Gem, Gold Reflection
Sephora says, 

  • What it is: A collection of luminous eye shadows that deliver prismatic shine, lush
  • texture, and lavish color payoff. 
  • What it does: The new wave in eye shadow, Prisma Chrome brings together the best
  • features of baked, powder, and cream shadows. Its revolutionary effect captures light
  • perfectly, delivering a prismatic effect with an unbelievably smooth and true color finish.
  • What else you need to know: An innovative blend of ingredients ensures comfortable wear. Pure pigments deliver the truest color imaginable and a highly polished finish. Its unique mica technology provides intense luminosity and a velvety texture that glides over the skin.
Each shadow retails for $15 and contains 3.5g of product in a mirrored compact .

The 10 shades offered are:  
  • Moon Beam 05 - an opalescent pink beige
  • Shimmery Sand 10 - light golden sand
  • Bronze Brilliance 15 - copper
  • Gold Reflection 20 - bright yellow gold
  • Emerald Facet 25 - golden teal
  • Sapphire Shine 30 - royal blue
  • Moon Glow 35 - silvery gray
  • Purple Prisma 40 - lilac
  • Burgundy Gem 45 - dark plum
  • Black Diamond 50 - black

The eyeshadows come in an interesting swirled and raised pattern that I didn't want to ruin.  I had a tough time figuring out what area I wanted to touch so I can bring you these swatches. 
From Top to Bottom: Sapphire Shine, Moon Beam, Black Diamond, Gold Reflection, Burgundy Gem
From Top to Bottom: Moon Glow, Bronze Brilliance, Purple Prisma, Shimmery Sand, Emerald Facet

I swatched these dry.  Color was more intense applied wet as well as applied over a colored base (I applied a few over Maybelline's Color Tattoo Cream Shadows and the results were amazing).  Staying power over a primer was around 10+ hours.  There can be a bit of fallout so I recommend using a light hand and applying before your foundation.
Overall rating: Booyah!

What are your plans for this shadow?  Do you plan to pick these up?  I'd love to know.
