Sephora Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eye Shadow

Some time back, Sephora released their Prisma Chrome Eye Shadows.  They have added to the Prisma Chrome family by offering the Outrageous Prisma Chrome Eyeshadows.  These are packaged in a round compact and the product is domed with a diamond pattern on the top (3.5 g/0.12 oz/$16).

There are 8 new shades in this offering and I ordered one of them.  I ordered Pearly Golden #1.  Interestingly, when I received my order, the compact I have reads Outrageous Metallic Beige so I was not certain that I received the shade I wanted though when I compared the product shade to the shade featured on the Sephora website, they appeared to be similar.  I did contact Customer Service and they confirmed I got the correct shade.

 The Sephora website describes the product as follows:

What it is:
A dramatic eye shadow that livens lids with a luminous chrome effect.

What it does:
Revel in luminosity with this eye shadow that provides a stunning, enlightened look. This formula combines all the best features of baked, powder, and cream textures to provide flawless blending and a highly polished finish. The pure, shimmering color adds high definition for an intense, vivid glow that perfectly captures light and admiration.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

Here are swatches:

Blended out dry

Overall rating: Booyah! for the luminosity of this shadow when applied wet or over a primer.  Swatched dry there is good color payoff but there is very little staying power (Boo-Hiss!).  If you rub the product, it quickly fades and leaves behind a shimmery glitter.  The original Prisma Chrome shadows were $15 for the same amount of product.  The original collection offered more variety of shades and had more pigmentation and staying power.  I will, however, say that I like the effect of using the shade that I have as a highlighter.  It dusted on nicely along my shoulders and décolleté and left a luminous finish along my cheekbones.

Have you tried any of the Sephora Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Shadows?  Which shades do you love?
