Long time, no see, blog buddies! I'm in my last semester of grad school at the moment and, let me tell you, things are C-R-A-Z-Y! I'm really busy trying to complete my final projects (and get a full-time job), but I miss blogging on a regular basis and I feel bad for neglecting my readers. So, let me quickly tell you about a product that I am enjoying before I go back to working on an upcoming presentation :-p

Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2 ($16) is part of a release of eight metallic, shimmery eyeshadows from the Sephora Collection. Each shadow is embossed with a crisscross, lattice-work design to catch the eye (and encourage impulse buys!). I succumbed to the allure of a pretty package and decided to try Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2.

I really love the color of Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2. It's a mid-tone gold shade with subtle hints of peach that make it super wearable. I find it to be slightly more bronze-y in hue than the popular Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked.

Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2 has lots of shimmer. Most of the shimmer is fairly fine, but there are larger pieces throughout for a more glittery effect. This eyeshadow generates a medium amount of fallout.

Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2 has a very smooth texture, but you have to break through the embossed pattern on the pan first. I've noticed this problem with a few other embossed shadows. It seems like whatever process the manufacturers use to emboss a pattern and seal it in the pan makes the top layer of shadow a little hard and difficult to use. It gets better once you swipe your brush back and forth across it a few times to break up the top seal.

And here it is on my lids! I applied it dry, but I think it still gives a nice, bright shimmer effect. Plus, it lasts FOREVER. Even without primer, Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2 doesn't begin to crease until about 7 hours after application.

Overall, I think that Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow in Golden Peach #2 is a good value for the price. It's soft, well-pigmented and very long-lasting. Additionally, you get a lot more product compared to some more expensive eyeshadows -- this one offers 0.12 oz for $16, while others include only 0.05 oz for the same price or more. 

I recommend that you check out Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow! If gold's not your thing, maybe give the metallic taupe, silver, or purple a try!
