Sephora Colorful Eye Shadow Photo Filter Palette: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
So many makeup companies are getting inspired by Instagram filters recently (see Too Faced Selfie Powders and the PurMineral Love Your Selfie Palette) and for Fall 2015, Sephora is joining the trend with the release of a great eyeshadow palette inspired by sunbleached Instagram filters. To see some swatches of the lovely neutral shades in the Colorful Eye Shadow Photo Filter Palette ($40 CAD), click.......

Packaging:
The Sephora Color Eye Shadow Photo Filter Palette comes in a surprisingly beautiful and well-made plastic compact. The lid features a fancy double-layered design with some pretty embossings. Inside are ten slots for the shadows and a very large mirror. Two of the shades are 2.13g and eight of the shades are 0.88g. I really like the fact that Sephora didn't try to include some impractical and space-taking sponge applicators.

Formulation:
Inspired by the sunbleached Instagram filters, the palette includes three pre-existing best-sellers from the Sephora eyeshadow collection (Secret Boudoir, Walking in the Sand, and Desert Rose) and seven brand new shades.
