Sephora says:A unique palette of shimmery, high-payoff shadows inspired by a magical, far-off place. Infused with crushed pearls and diamond and porcelain powder, this set of shadows is like jewelry for your eyes. The shades of olive green, shimmering aqua, and iridescent white were carefully created by Tarina to capture the essence of The Emerald City in the bejeweled Land of Oz. From sweet to wicked, these intense formulas offer shimmery payoff and ultra-high pigmentation. Quality ingredients ensure long wear and shades can be applied either wet or dry.
Glinda’s Kiss: Iridescent white. This frosty white shade applies beautifully, it works great as an under brow highlight and in the tear duct.
Silver Shoes: Pearlized silver. The most “powdery” compared to the rest of the shadows. It still applies smoothly and has great color payoff.
Dandy Lion: Pearlized olive green. Probably the most unique color out of the bunch, it’s a warm medium green with a hint of yellow. It’s smooth and pigmented.
Saw Dust Heart: Matte deep brown. I don’t know how someone could be excited about a matte dark brown, I have about 2.5 billion in my current collection. But somehow, this one really wowed me. The texture is like butter, it’s very smooth, and the color payoff is amazing. It’s tad too dark for my brows (NC30 skin, dark brown hair), but this applies and blends like a dream.
Ozma: Pearlized aqua blue. The beauty of the color teal? EVERYONE looks good in it. While this color is easily dupe-able, it’s still a nice, smooth, pigmented eyeshadow.
Very Wicked: Pearlized emerald green. I wouldn’t call this an emerald green in any way shape or form. It’s a dark forest green, it looks more grayish in the pan but comes out more green when applied. Smooth and pigmented!
The eyeshadow formula is amazing! Every shadow is smooth and pigmented with a buttery texture, what more could you ask for? I really like the color selection, nothing is too bright, and the colors come off as almost “secondary neutrals,” meaning you could wear them with anything and it just “works.” The brightest of the bunch is Ozma, but as I mentioned before, teal looks good on everyone! The eyeshadow pans are HUGE, 0.9oz (compared to the 0.5 that most palettes have). The only thing I dislike is the packaging, it’s large, flimsy and wastes a lot of space. The cardboard is sturdy, but the magnetic closure isn’t very tight. As far as the formula goes, A+!
Glitter Rating: 4.5 / 5
