Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow No. 65 Lazy Afternoon Review and Swatches

Sephora recently introduced a line of eyeshadow singles that you can mix and match and create your own palettes.  I needed a new matte light beige (I like to use this kind of color to blend out harsh lines from dark colors and under the brow when I don't want to use a shimmery highlight) since my favorite Wet 'n' Wild color (Creme Brulee) is rapidly running out.

Sephora says:  Flash superior color, flawless wear, and long-lasting beauty with this striking eye shadow formula. The Color Eye Last complex means you can comfortably wear this shadow up to 10 gorgeous hours and the micronized pigments ensure an ultra smooth, blendable texture. 

Sephora describes Lazy Afternoon as a white beige matte.

The formula is very silky and finely milled.  It has a different feel than a really buttery formula (like Urban Decay's shadows).   This is one of the matte colors, so the shimmery or glittery shadows may have a different texture.  It is a little powdery, but there is no fallout (although it can be hard to tell with a light shadow like this).  It is supremely blendable, and I didn't notice and creasing without a primer even after 8 hours of wear.  It's a little hard to tell how sheer this color is, since it's so close to my skin color, so the other matte colors may run sheer, but it's hard to tell from this one.  

I think this shadow performs well, and it makes me curious to know how the shimmer and glitter shadows wear.

The singles are $13 each.  An empty 3 pan palette is $12, and a 4 pan is $14.
