Review: SEPHORA Does HOT Neon Brights For Summer! #SEPHORA #NeonSummer

(product photos courtesy of www.sephora.com)
I have a few items from the SEPHORA COLLECTION Summer line that I was able to test out. This summer super bright neon shades will have you sizzling in the summer heat. Nude shades are still around, but they are joined by bright neon shades for some fun that will have you basking in the sun. Just remember to wear a high SPF to protect your skin! 

SEPHORA COLLECTION Velvet Eye Shadow Sweet Champagne
The first item I have to show you is the NEW SEPHORA COLLECTION Velvet Eye Shadow ($15.00). These eye shadows are perfect for summer. They are waterproof, crease proof, fade proof and wear for up to 16 hours! There are 12 shades to choose from and the colors range from a light beige to dark, smoky black. The colors go on light and build in intensity to heavy coverage, as you want. The light formula glides on with ease and you can use your fingers or a brush to apply them. The exclusive blend of waxes, polymers, and pigments keeps them from drying out too fast so you get to blend them with each other easily. It also allows for blending with other colors quite easy too, and also adding some texture and dimension. These can be worn alone or wear them with powder shadows for fun daytime looks for super dramatic nighttime looks. 

SEPHORA COLLECTION Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette

Next we have the NEW SEPHORA COLLECTION  Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette ($15.00). It has a bronzer and two coordinating shades of blush, one a classic hue and one a bright pop of color. The bronzer is called Los Cabos, the bright blush is Blushing Pink and then the other blush is called Coral Punch. The blushes and bronzer work great for daytime looks and for nighttime looks, both. They are all highly pigmented and buildable to create the perfect shade of color for your skintone. The bestselling Los Cabos bronzer gives a great natural looking sun-kissed glow. Blushing Pink blush is a gorgeous rosy pink pop of color. Coral Punch blush give the apples of the cheeks a “punch” of color that is perfect for summer. Wear the shades alone, together or blend them your way to make it your desired look.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip ColorFor the lips I received the NEW SEPHORA COLLECTION Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Lilac Luster ($16.00), which is just beautiful. This summer matte lips are all the rage. I have seen many brands bring out matte lip products and this one is top notch. It has beautiful color with a lightweight formula. Imagine a saturated matte lip with a lustrous sheen. It does exist. Rose hip seed oil nourishes the lips and the custom applicator tip helps to hug every lip contour for precise application. This formula comes in 12 shades. The Lilac Luster color is gorgeous. It  is a bright lilac color that looks great on the lips. I would wear a lip liner underneath, so as to make sure the color does not bleed through onto the skin. The color goes on very wet and dries down to a matte finish, without drying or cracking at all. It stays moist throughout the day.

Finally, let’s discuss the NEW SEPHORA COLLECTION Paint Rio in Neon Color Hit Set ($18.00). Neon nails are definitely a huge thing for summer. I have seen this all over the cosmetics brands. SEPHORA has come out with a nice, bright set of 4 polishes with instructions for fun designs, that will sure to leave your tootsies and fingers looking perfect against a backdrop SEPHORA COLLECTION Paint Rio in Neon Nail Setof a faux tan. I say faux tan because I will never endorse a real one. I am an esthetician and I cannot endorse sitting in the sun! However, a faux tan is perfectly fine and these colors will look perfect with one. In fact, they will look beautiful with one. The shades are inspired by Brazil. They have light reflecting pigments and provide intense and long-lasting color. A unique combination of resins and waxes will allow for super quick drying time, so you can get on the beach or out with your friends in no time flat. The shades are called: Pink Bikini (neon pink), Brazilian Sun (neon yellow), Papaya Daiquiri (neon orange), Caipi Freeze (neon green). 

Now, I don’t do my fingernails, as they tend to peel when I use polish. So I painted my toes instead. I did find the polish a little bit drippy, so make sure you get most of it off and swipe the brush onto the bottle before you do a nail. Otherwise, it did dry rather fast and 2 coats looked okay. I know I’m not the best at doing my toes, but it’s hard for me to bend down with my back problems! I tried to do an okay job.
