Review & Swatchfest: VS Eyeshadow Quad in Overnight Sensation

VS Eyeshadow Quad in Overnight Sensation
No one does a glammed up eye like a Victoria's Secret Angel, so it's no surprise that an eyeshadow quad with the VS label lends itself well to creating a glitzy smoky eye. Overnight Sensation contains four shimmery shadows and retails for $18. Each shadow is labeled so that even those who don't know the first thing about achieving an Angel's sexy stare can do it in a flash. The base color is a shimmery champagne, the lid is a shimmery, blackened purple, the crease color is a shimmery dark grey, and the highlight shade is a frosted white. While all of them swatch well, when worn they need to be built up to achieve the pigmentation seen below. Still the layering is easy to achieve and well worth the effort.

Those uninterested in a palette without a matte shade will immediately nix this. However, those that don't mind a shimmer-fest will adore Overnight Sensation. The shadows complement each other to create anything from a subtle, yet colorful day look to a sultry, super-smoked night look. The shadow quality is good in terms of staying power, but the texture is the slightest bit gritty (not painfully so, but more-so than other shimmery shadows on the market).

I typically wouldn't think to check out Victoria's Secret eyeshadow quads to find a go-to set of shadows. This quad made me think twice. For someone looking for a sophisticated set of shadows, these are worth checking out. However, as I said before, matte lovers beware because there isn't one in sight. You can find these quads on the Victoria's Secret website, but I think Overnight Sensation is available solely in-store.
