Recently, I ordered a few items from Sephora using their online order. So, I really like to try this Color Bronze which has a bronzer, 4 colors lip gloss and 8 shades eyeshadows. It’s 3 in 1 combo packaging. I received my order quite fast. I believed in 2-3 days depending where you live and the ordering process was easy.
The size is almost like a credit card size but there were two wings on both side. The packaging is of hard plastic compact material.
Out of the eight color shades from the palette only one was matte (brown), where else the rest were with shimmers.
The top three lighter shades were very light and has little pigmentation. It was more of metalic shimmer and best to wear for evening nightout. I made a swatch color and to my disappointment, these eyeshadows have very limited lasting effect even with eye primer on. It’s powdery and color were very light.
Lip gloss swatches of the four colors in nude, pink, wine, orange-y red. Texture wise, not too bad for a lip gloss. It’s fragrant free and it glides smoothly as any lip gloss should.
I used a quite a bit on the lip gloss since it does give some nice color on my lips. It’s not sticky and paired well with a lovely lip liner if I just want to wear lip gloss for the day.
Lastly. here are the swatch I made for the bronzer which I quite like. The color is nice and it has good pigmentation.
Overall, I think the name Color bronze really focuses a lot on its bronzer and not so on the eyeshadows and lip gloss. I admit that I expected more from Sephora product compared to the drugstores brand but in my opinion these eyeshadows doesn’t work for me. It might work for some and I’m sad to say that it failed my expectation.
Anyways, my question to you is:
Have you ever bought a product that fall short to your expectation? What would you do if this had happened to you?
Thanks for reading.
