Have you seen these new Sephora Prisma Chrome eyeshadows? I noticed them on the website when I was browsing for new stuff and they really caught my eye. Partially because of the name (Prisma Chrome! Sounds iridescent and shiny!) and partially just because they looked cool and unusual.
I picked the one called Moon Beam (described as "opalescent pink beige") because it seemed like it might be the most iridescent and when it arrived I was not disappointed.
Now, every picture I've seen of these has been straight on, like this, so it looks like some sort of crazy, sparkly futuristic swirly space condom package or something. So imagine my surprise when it arrives....
...And it's actually not just flat with a raised ring at all. It's a fascinating, wavy three-dimensional design. Look at it from a few more angles, you'll see what I mean:
The color of Moon Beam is a light neutral beige base with a ton of shiny, sparkly pink metallic duochrome shimmer. Swatched on my arm, it does look truly duochrome because it shifts from beige to pink and at an extreme angle takes on a slightly green look. It has lots of little sparkling shimmer particles in it and it is highly iridescent. Looks like the inside of a seashell.
I haven't used it on my eyes yet, but it swatched well on my arm, so I think it's going to work pretty well. It felt smooth, had plenty of pigment to it and didn't give me any sparkly fallout, so I'm really looking forward to trying out a few looks with it.
Definitely one of the coolest looking shadows I have ever seen. It's on the pricey side for Sephora house brand ($15 for 0.12 oz) but I think this one was worth it. Kinda curious to check out the rest of the colors now.
