Two duochrome eye looks with Sephora + Pantone’s Light Storm Liquid Shadows

Sephora Pantone Universe review swatches Light Storm

Last Friday was a whirlwind of I seriously love these, so I thought today I’d bring you a couple eye looks using the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Light Storm Liquid Shadows ($18 USD/$22 CAD).

Sephora Pantone Smoky Grape duochrome eye

Sephora + Pantone Light Storm Liquid Eyeshadow in Smoky Grape

To start off: a really basic eye with Smoky Grape, worn sheerly and blended through to the edges with fingers. To test the Light Storm Liquid Shadows’ wear time, I took this eye out for a day at the park — four hours in the summer sun, plus breakfast and lunch in the city, and it didn’t budge or crease at all.

On my lashes is a quick layer of Annabelle Expandable Mascara ($10.95 CAD), and that’s literally it. No primer, no powder, and no other shadows!

Sephora Pantone Tuscany duochrome eye

I was less excited about the way Tuscany swatched (it’s pretty, but the duochrome’s a lot less obvious), so I tried it out with a liner I both love and hate. The Milani Liquid Eye Liner Pencil ($6.99 USD) is super creamy and creates some seriously sexy smudged eyeliner, but on my bare lids, it turns into a greasy mess in under fifteen minutes.

So, I put on two sheer layers of Tuscany, smudged the Milani pencil in 01 Black along my upper lashline, and added a coat of Imju Fiberwig Extra Long Mascara. Five hours later, when I had to take my makeup off to go to bed, it was all still intact — not a smudge or crease in sight.

I hope you like this eye look, because it’s about to become my go-to for every time I feel like wearing liner.

    Wow, I really love the liliac on you, it suits your skin tone perfectly and I love the flash of blue in it. Big fan!

    Beautiful. You remind me that the simplest eye is often the prettiest.
    I'll try something like your liner trick. I've yet to find a pencil liner that hasn't smudged on me.

  4. Love these looks, so subtle and delicate!

    Simple and beautiful! I usually lean towards neutrals, but that Smoky Grape looks super sweet on you :-) I wonder if we get these in our local Sephora…

    Is it easy to remove it?

  7. Both of these looks are gorgeous on you! These shadows would really compliment a lot of different skin tones. LOVE the look you created with Tuscany an the Milani liner! Fierce! <3

  8. Those swatches look rrreally nice! And I love your eye look. It is so simple and soft, but very striking at the same time.

    These look so stunning – both the swatches and how you wear them on your lids. I would never have imagined Smokey Grape being so wearable yet with so much dimension, but you totally make it happen. Love the whole look Rae! Perfection!

  10. That Tuscany shade is gorgeous! I might have to pick these up! They both look so pretty on you!

    Ok, really need to go out and play more with Tuscany! Love that second look Rae :)

  12. OMG!!! Both colors are extremely beautiful! They seem to blend well with the skin. Its def a must try. I’ll check on these and maybe would be included in my purchase list.

  13. It should be available now, at all stores that carry SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE colour collections, Jiya! :)

  14. It's a little more of a flash of green in person — super interesting (and unexpected), if you ask me!

  15. Definitely, definitely layer it with products that don't crease on you, darling. I need nothing short of a layer of eyelid armour in order to make creamy eyeliners work on my lids! :p

  16. Thank you, Delia!

  17. Fingers crossed that you do — both of these would look amazing on your lids, darling :)

  18. Surprisingly, yes! Because these are oil-insoluble but not at all waterproof, they remove easily with warm water and cleanser (or any micellar solution).

  19. Thank you, Kristen! <3 <3

  20. Thanks, lovely! :)

  21. Thank you, Angie — that means a lot, coming from you! :) (PS: If you can get your hands on Tuscany, DO. I think it would look amazing on your lids!)

  22. Hope you can find them in your area, Gina!

  23. Thank you, darling :) Have fun!!

  24. They'll be off shelves soon, Alice (if they aren't already) — make sure to give them a try as soon as possible! :)

  25. Love the second look with Tuscany! You had me at lo ng wearing and crease resistant

  26. Thank you, darling!
