Sephora + Pantone Universe Eyeshadow Quad

I was good this time during the VIB 15% off sale! I bought only one thing that was on my wishlist and that is the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Eyeshadow Quad. I actually originally wanted the blush duo, but it was sold out. This quad was next on my list.

^ The packaging is really durable and nice, though I do feel it's a bit bulky and a waste. They could have downsized and saved a lot of material. The actual quad packaging is just like Inglot's. It has a frosted magnetic cover that you twist and lift off. Don't pull up directly or you'll have a difficult time removing it. It's easy to twist off, so I would not necessarily call this travel-friendly.

^ I especially like the colors on the left. My issue with these are when they are applied dry. They go on sheer with more fallout than even Fall Out Boy would be comfortable with. Used wet, there's much less fallout and they go on much more opaque. I'm not sure how much use the tangerine shadow will get (regardless of it being the color of the year), but the other three are easy to build looks around.

^ Wet swatches. Used MAC's Fix+.
