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.

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

    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!

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

  • BooBooNinja

    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.

    • 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

    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…

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

  • believequeenamidala

    Is it easy to remove it?

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

  • 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

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

  • vanityrouge

    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!

    • 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!)

  • 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 :)

  • 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.

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

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