Now I’ve had a chance to swatch and play with the Sephora Spring In Soho Eye, Lip & Cheek Palette, which I bought from Sephora US now that it’s shipping to the UK, it’s definitely a mixed review. The eye colours are really pretty – shimmery and a lovely pay-off but the lips and blush are disappointing.
It’s a spring palette, so no surprise to see some pastels in there and I like the colour selection for variety. The pay-off, even though they are predominantly pale shades is really good and the textures are very blendable.
The bottom row, which are lip colours and a powder blush, is another story – unless you like the lightest hint on the lips the colours are so light in consistency that they barely show on the lip. The nude colour that looks like a bit of a splodge is a different consistency to the rest so while I needed to rub the product quite hard to get a good swatch, the nude shade is much softer and creamier so basically I ended up with a hot mess all over my finger – hence the splodge. The peachy blush shade is pretty insipid – for lighter skin tones only, I’d say. So, while I will get use out of the top layer, I’m not sure I’ll be using the bottom at all. The Sephora Spring In Soho Eye, Lip & Cheek Palette is$18 which is not expensive at all for what you get- I just wish the bottom row had lived up to the top.
