Sephora Color Hit Nail polish : Walk on the Wild Side ~ Review & Swatch

I don’t have many Sephora products (only a couple eyeliners, HERE) and this is my first Sephora nailpolish. There were not many options for nailpolish in the store as I was hoping (I was expecting Kiko like shade selections), but nevertheless I spotted this beautiful shade- Walk on the wild side which I am reviewing in this post.

 

Price: Rs 390 for 5 ml

 

Sephora Color Hit Nail polish Walk on the Wild Side Review

 

  • Sephora Color Hit nailpolish comes in an interesting packagingsleek, flat, oval shape which is so convenient to use, especially while opening. The cap lies nicely with the shape when you close it, unlike some nailpolish where you either have to keep it loose or make it too tight in order to make it sit in line with the bottle. Because of the sleek bottle design it doesn’t take much space in bag while travelling.
  • The shade name is stickered on top and ingredient details is at the back in peel off sticker.
  • The brush is amazing. It is short, wide with rounded edges, just the way I like it. It makes the application easy especially around cuticles.
  • The consistency is creamy and pigmentation is topnotch. I was not expecting the pigmentation to be so good honestly. One coat gives opaque coverage and you can get away with wearing single coat only. I like to wear two coats just to intensify the color.
  • The shade Walk on the Wild side is a gorgeous shimmery peacock green color which looks metallic and foil-like. It has slight duochrome effect with a golden sheen. The shade reminds me of mermaids.
  • Walk on the wild side shade being metallic, it tends to get streaky with visible brush strokes, especially in one coat. So you have to be careful while applying.
  • It dries down super quick. By the time you finish painting all 10 fingers, you can start with another coat almost immediately.
  • Sephora nailpolish are quite pricey for the quantity.  But there are some shades (like this one) which you wont find easily in other (Indian) brands.
  • Wear time is ok. Lasted 4 days without chipping.

 

Avon Metallic nailpolish in shade ‘Jade Reflection’ (reviewed HERE) is a dupe, but it doesnot have the shimmering effect, depth and duochrome effect which Sephora Walk on the Wild side nailpolish does.

Overall, Sephora nailpolish come in interesting and sleek oval glass packaging. The brush is wide with rounded corners which makes application easy around cuticles. The shade Walk on the Wild side is a gorgeous metallic peacock green color which looks foil like. The brush stroke are visible in one coat so you need to apply carefully. The pigmentation is amazing and goes opaque in single coat. Consistency is creamy and dries super quick. The only con I could find is that it is pricey for the quantity. I will purchase Sephora nailpolish only if I find an interesting shade.

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12 hr wear: Love Affair ~ Review, Swatch

 

This is my first purchase from Sephora and the purchase was unintentional. I went to Sephora to check out Benefit cosmetics and the SA was wearing this beautiful eyeliner that I couldn’t refrain myself from asking. And one thing led to another and this beauty was sitting in my vanity by the end of the day 😀

Price: Rs 870 for 1.2g

 

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12 hr wear Love Affair Review

Sephora Contour eye pencil come in black sharpenable pencil with black plastic cap. The end of the pencil is color coded which makes it easier to spot if you have multiple shades from this range. The shade name is written towards the end of the pencil, at bottom of other details. Since this is a sharpenable eyeliner and not retractable, it leads to product wastage whenever you sharpen it.

Love Affair shade is a beautiful brown-plum color with pearl finish. This comes under shimmer shade but there is no “shimmer”, and the sheen is very subtle and not OTT. This makes a gorgeous work-wear shade if you like to experiment. Sephora Contour Eye Pencil Love Affair is slightly sheer in one coat and needs 2-3 coats to build to full intensity. This is not a one-stroke eyeliner like THESE. The texture is super creamy and glides easily. It does not tug or pull at the eyelids and so building up the coverage is not a problem.

Love Affair shade may not pop on your eyes if your eyelids are dark; so do swatch it at the counter before buying especially if you have dark eyelids.

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil does not irritate my eyes, even on waterline.

The staying power of this eyeliner is impressive. It does not budge once it sets. It stays put on my eyes whole day (~10 hours). Also, this is waterproof eyeliner, so you do not have to worry if you have watery eyes, or you get wet in rain 😛

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Sephora Contour Eye Pencil Love Affair is a brown-plum eyeliner with a beautiful pearly sheen. It is super creamy and easy to apply. It is waterproof and smudgeproof. This is a sharpenable pencil so it needs to be sharpened which leads to product wastage. The pigmentation is less in one stroke, but builds to full intensity in 2-3 swipes. The only con apart from the sharpenable thing is the price. This is bit expensive but such a gorgeous shade that I will probably buy this again.
