I have been forever looking for a Darkened Green Eyeshadow, almost black, and one fine day , when I was just browsing through Sephora eyeshadow collection at a store while my friend was busy trying some makeup, I swatched this particular eyeshadow, feel in love, and bought it immediately. It was unplanned and whimsical, but I'm so glad I got it because this is just PERFECT!!
The Sephora Colorful eyeshadows come in round pans with a transparent flip top lid and without a brush/applicator or a mirror. The packaging is quite simple, and you can easily depot them and place in your choice of palette (provided it fits), or you can also buy palettes from Sephora.
The Sephora Range of Colorful eyeshadows comes in a variety of finishes, Matte, shimmer, Glitter and mirror and this particular shade is from the Glitter Range. No. 9 is a beautiful Dark Green shade, bordering black, and is full of green and gold glitter. The texture is a little crumbly, and if you're not careful with application, this may cause a lot of fallout and spoil the rest of your face makeup. I usually apply the product with a doe foot eyeshadow applicator brush, and instead of sweeping the color across the lids, I place the color in a pat-pat motion. This causes minimal, almost negligible fallout that can easily be cleaned off without disturbing the face makeup.
For a glitter eyeshadow, this goes on fairly smooth, and is intensely pigmented. It is also very easy to blend. The eyeshadow can easily be built up to give opaque color on the lids The eyeshadow stays on my lids for a good 3-4 hours without a base, and with a primer, the staying time can be as long as 7-8 hours. There is some creasing after 4 hours, but no fading even after 7 hours over a primer.
Overall, The Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow in No.9 Jungle Party is an excellent eyeshadow for evening wear or for creating those glimmering smokey eyes.The glitter is fine and not at all gritty. There may be some fly aways after a few hours of wear, but nothing that can't be controlled. The blackened Green base couple with the gold and Green glitter has made me give my heart to it and it has exceptionally well over-ridden my expectations from a glitter eyeshadow. The product is overpriced for a single eyeshadow, but for the quality and finish, I would not deduct any points here.
No.9 Jungle Party is as gorgeous as an eyeshadow can get. I rarely say this for any eyeshadow, but in this particular case , it's a must have eyeshadow for your collection!
