Sephora + Pantone Tangerine Tango Swatches

Let's start with the eyeshadow, all the shadows have varying amounts of shimmer. They are all very smooth, blendable, and buildable. They are on the sheer side, but I do not feel it has anything to do with the quality of the shadow. I love the fact that the tangerine color is paired with an otherwise neutral palette.

Cheeks! My favorite. I love the lift this color gives to my cheeks. The blushers are very pigmented. I have to use a duo fiber brush so I don't pick up too much product. Be careful because the color moves around when it is swiped with your brush. Both colors are very pretty. Desert Flower has more shimmer than the matte Coral. As I said, they really add a bright glow to the cheeks! The highlighter, Apricot Brandy is a very nice color. You can use it on face and body. It's a pretty color, but I'm not wowed by it.

You certainly must be brave to wear this color. I have tried them, but have not worn them out yet. They are very bright, especially the gloss. I don't care for the texture of this. It is almost too thick. Sort of like a liquid lipstick. It has a sponge tip applicator that just pushes the product around and delivers an uneven application. They should have used a doe foot. I had to use my fingers and pat the color onto my lips. It is VERY glittery. I'm not very fond of glitter on my lips. It does have staying power. I got about 4- 5 hours out of it. That is good for me. The gloss is thick without being overly sticky. The lipstick is very smooth. It goes on more sheer than it appears in the tube, but it is still bright. It feels good on my lips, which tend to be very dry. It did not make my lips peel. I like the lipstick so much that I want to check out  other lip colors of the Sephora brand next time I'm in the store!

I forgot to swatch and photograph the eyeliner. Silly me. I'll get right on that. The pencil is very smooth. It has great color payoff and stays put on my oily lids. I used it as an eyeshadow base and as a line of color over black winged liner. That's it for now.
