Sunbleached filter – Sephora


The sunbleached filter palette is inspired by photo filtering effects. It contains warm coloured shades which I think are perfect for everyday wear. Some of these eyeshadows are pigmented however, others do not show up on my skin tone. The eyeshadows are very buildable, buttery and easily blendable which I love.

The eyeshadows are all smooth in texture. These shadows have great longevity when I use a primer (Urban Decay, NYX) on my eyes. I don’t like some of the shades in this palette and others I love.

(L-R) Swan song, Desert rose, Walking in the sand and Secret boudoir

As you can see ‘walking in the sand’ does not show up on my skin tone at all. The swan song shade, it is chalky and matte which I don’t think looks good on the eyes. Desert rose is a pale pink shade which adds a subtle wash of colour on my eyelids. Secret boudoir I think is a great shade to use as a base on top of primer before adding other colours.

(L-R) Swell, tbt and Selfie

These are my favourite shades in the palette. I would actually purchase this entire palette just for the brown shade. I have wanted a nice dark brown colour for a long time and this is perfect. It is a matte brown colour, it is not drying for a matte shade I absolutely love it. It looks amazing on the eyelid with a peachy/pink shade on the crease (my fave eyeshadow combo at the moment). I love the colour Swell it is a beautiful shimmery shade, I think these shades are perfect for night time looks.

(L-R) Sandy toes, Whitewashed and Latergram

Latergram is a perfect peachy shade and looks great for summer looks. Whitewashed is chalky shade and does not show up well on my skin tone. Sandy toes is a pretty pink shade that is very pigmented and looks beautiful with an all pink eyeshadow look.

Overall, I think this palette has a couple of beautiful shades whereas, others do not show up on my skin tone. Most of the shades are buttery whereas two of the lighter shades are chalky. However, for $15 for 6 nice shades I think is a good deal. I am obssessed with the darker shades in this palette.
