Sinful Colors Eyeshadow

I own plenty of Sinful Colors nail polishes (although they haven't been featured on Glazed Over yet, surprisingly) but I had no idea that they made other cosmetics, too! Oddly enough, you wouldn't know it from their website either, which is dedicated solely to nail polish. Don't let that fool you - Sinful Colors also makes eyeshadows! 

I was browsing a locally owned drugstore recently and came across these eyeshadows on sale for $1.99 each (normally $4 each). I snagged a couple of the prettier colors I could find because I figured for that price, who cares if they're bad! I picked up three colors (listed beginning on bottom left, and clockwise): Pandora, So-Pretty and Upscale. 

As you can see, the two colors on the left, Pandora and So-Pretty, are very similar but look much more different than they appear on camera. Pandora is a champagney pink that is great for an inner corner highlight, as it has very fine glitter and catches the light very well. So-Pretty is my favorite of the bunch, and it's more of a peachy rose-gold color that is shimmery but doesn't have any glitter. It would be perfect alone or mixed with other colors. Upscale is a dark chocolate brown that features gold glitter. It isn't super pigmented, but it could be built up. I would definitely recommend wetting your brush to help avoid glitter fallout with this one.

Here you can see what these look like. I did wear Pandora and So-Pretty together this past week, and I have to say I wasn't thrilled. The shadows are quite powdery and even with a primer they didn't have much lasting power. After 8 hours there was just a hint of color left on my eyelids. That's what you get for $2, I suppose! And probably why I haven't really heard much talk of these anywhere. 

I'm sure I'll still get some good use out of these, and I definitely don't regret the purchase. If you're interested in trying some out for yourself, has a sale going on and you can get these Sinful Colors eyeshadows for just $2 each.
