7 Worst Eyeshadows
From smoky hot messes to glittery disasters -- our readers recommend keeping your brushes far away from this eye makeup
No. 2: Sephora Colorful Pro Eyeshadow Palette, $12TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 3.3*
Why: "The glitter made my eyes itch!" says one woman. "I bought this because you get six complementary colors all in one palette for a 'no-brainer' application. Well, as soon as I applied it, gobs of glitter started falling off my brush and onto my cheeks, my clothes and worst of all, in my eyes. Within minutes my eyes started to get really itchy from all the glitter." Another woman says, "oh, how I wanted to like this. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and they enhanced my hazel-brown eyes so well. But it seems like all or most of them are very glittery. Not shimmer, but actual glitter. I tried this in Sephora and I ended up with glitter all over my under-eye [area] and cheeks." One woman agrees saying, "the other reviewers were right on; I wanted to like this because the color selection was great, but the GLITTER! Having glitter invade your eye half way through application is not fun business. If it was cheaper or they reformulated the glitter shades, I'd deal. Until then, back to the store it goes. Meh."
