Review: Sephora Vintage Filter Palette
I have been looking for a more colorful, but still neutral palette to broaden my horizons with. While out shopping on Black Friday I popped into my local Sephora, which only caries the in-house brand, and their Colorful filter palettes caught my eye. They all look really pretty and there are a few different options: Vintage, Sunbleached, and Overcast. I was drawn to the Vintage palette immediately and the swatches seemed promising, so I made it mine.
The palette is on the small side with ten shadows and sturdy packaging. This is definitely a palette that I would travel with, it snaps close and it's quite compact! It's the length of my iPhone 6s and just a little bit wider, for reference. It includes a mirror, six shimmer shades and four matte shades. Two of the shades that would mostly be used for highlighting are made larger than the others, although each shadow is a decent size.
There is a wide range of color varieties included in this palette; it's got some great neutrals, but also a dark red, a navy blue, a pale lavender, and an olive green. These are the kinds of muted colors that I like to play with and I've been having a lot of fun testing out this palette, as I usually don't wear anything outside of the brown range on my eyes.
The shadows are all very soft, but not powdery. The mattes don't feel chalky at all and they have nice pigmentation. Not the best that I've ever tried, but they blend easily and the pigment can be built up! The shimmers are very fine, I haven't noticed any fallout under the eyes with them. Without a primer these started to crease after about five or six hours, but with a primer I've worn them for ten plus hours with no creasing.
The shadows included are...
Memory Lane: Larger shadow, dull gold shimmer
Cashmere Coat: matte grayish blue
Throwback: Shimmery olive green
#itsvintage: Shimmery lilac
Cookie Crunch: Shimmery chocolate brown
Distressed: Matte pinkish mauve
Secret boudoir: Larger shadow, matte pale mauve
Antiqued: Shimmery navy
Rust-ic: shimmery burgundy
Coffee break: matte cool-toned brown
Each of these was swatched with no primer and only one swipe!
All of these work really well together and they're suited for all skin tones in my opinion! Memory Lane could also be used as a highlighter, it's so beautiful. If you're in Sephora, give this palette a swatch! If you're a fan of muted colors like me, this will be right up your street. The other two palettes in this collection have some nice colors as well.
