Things We Love: Full Spectra Eyeshadow Palette

sephora pantone eye shadow


Sephora has teamed up with Pantone Universe to create the Full Spectra Eyeshadow Palette, which comes in “Day Break” and “Night Fall”… and we can’t say enough colorful things about it!  These palettes create a multidimensional eye look of harmonious shades and a unique color-shifting formula that alters depending on the angle of view and lighting. Each color family includes coordinated hues ideal for capturing a variety of looks, balanced with a slight pearlescent finish to provide depth and softness. The combination of esters, emollients, and vitamin E creates a soft and velvety texture that allows color to spread smoothly and evenly. Plus, these incredible palettes are free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates! We added both to our makeup bag :)
