Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette

I picked up the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette in In The Dark while I was on holiday last year and if I'm totally honest, I haven't used it much since. It's a lovely palette but it's just not the easiest to use. It has a good range of shades, mostly neutrals, a couple of purples and an eye catching cobalt blue. All the shades are very shimmery, bordering on glittery, they don't appear so in the palette but they do when worn. I don't tend to use it in the day in fear of looking like a day time disco ball! The shades do look great as part of a more 'evening' look.

The shadows don't have great colour pay off, they deposit more glitter than colour but they are very buildable so it's definitely still possible to achieve a bold look, it just takes a bit of time and layering. I find the best way to apply them is to pack on the colour with your finger and then just blend out any edges with a fluffy brush.   

Top row: Lavender, Nude, White Gold, Gold, Platinum

Bottom Row: Black Purple, Deep Brown, Glitter Black, Black Gold, Cobalt Blue

In spite of not using this palette very often, I'm still glad I own it as I can create some really great looks with it. A good one to add to your collection if you're a fan of glittery shadows but probably one to give a miss if you like your products quick and easy to use!

  7. That's such a shame that this palette isn't as great as it looks and that the shadows are glittery! The colours are still really pretty though.

  8. They really are, I need to try and use them more!

  9. They are great, might do some looks with them soon!

  10. Definitely! I need to use it more rather than just let it sit gathering dust!

  11. It sounds like a great program! I'd definitely be interested, I just looked on your blog but couldn't seem to find the post. Could you send me a link?

  12. Great if it's a glitter look you're after though! I wish I had more opportunities to wear it!

  13. I love that Black Purple color! I can see using that, although I am usually more of the "quick and easy" product person than the "takes time and patience to build" person. I adore the Cobalt Blue as well, but I can't really imagine wearing that bright of a shade. It is a reminder of the very first eyeshadow kit I bought at age 12, I think it was Covergirl and was shades of blue, but what can I say, it was the 80's. LOL I would probably pass on this set, I tend to avoid the glittery shades now that I am older and I like to go with a little more solid color, but I'm really glad to see your review. Thanks!

  14. To be honest I think it was the blue that drew me to this palette! It's just such a pretty colour, I just like to look at it!! I've swatched it on my hand so many times but never actually worn it!! You're right to pass on this one if you don't like glittery shades, they're VERY glittery!
