Sephora Collection Color play 5 in 1 review + swatches

Hello beauties! Today I'm going to review the infamous Sephora's 5 in 1 palette. It came out not so long ago and I know that a few beauty blogger bought it and they were pretty satisfied with it. I was surprised by the good pigmentation & I really like the fact that it has a portable compact. Each palette has a name and a color array and it contains 10 e/s, 2 gloss & a blush. There's a mix of matte, frost & shimmery finish.

1. Dinner in Paris: a mix of black & grey colors, perfect for smokey eyes :)
2. Coffee in New York: brown & beiges
3. Shopping in Milan: Consists of purple, pink and a green color
4. Tango in Buenos Aires: Blue & green shades
5. Clubbing in Tokyo: Pastel color! :D

Here's some swatches by palette. Note that I used UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) so I could capture the colors since I have a very sucky camera lol.

See how the color are pigmented? =D I'm very happy with this purchase and the quality of the product. I didn't try out the blushes and lipgloss yet. I know that some people had difficulties opening the palette or taking them out but I didn't have any problems with it. It retails for 38,50CAN (29,50USD) @ Sephora and it's limited edition (but you know it will stay on the shelf for a while! =P) The shadows didn't creased on me and some colors were more long lasting than others. As you can see on the swatches, I had a little bit more difficulties with the matte shades (in the Dinner in Paris palette, the matte white & beige color doesn't really show). Overall, it's a good purchase if you want to experiment with eyeshadow and own a big variety of e/s colors. :)

Hope you guys enjoyed!


  1. Nice! do you own the Coastal Scents palette? If you do, which one do you think is a better buy? I don't own any large palettes with a ton of color, but I think it'd be good to have. I like the Clubbing in Tokyo one! Super fun colors :)

  2. Hi Sophia! I don't own a Coastal Scent palette but the 88 color palette looks nice. The palettes are very affordable but I heard that sometimes it comes out chalky. Plus, 88 colors is way too much for me! LOL

  3. Glad you love it too! I really love mine and I'm happy with how the colors deliver :D

  4. The colors are so pretty! It's such a great palette :)

  5. OMg this palette is amazing! I have it too. The pigment is insane, I'm addicted to using it! Dior actually manufactures the eyeshadows that's why it's so good this time around. :)

  6. @Rainy: I've seen the looks you were able to create with it and it looked fantastic! :D

    @Dina: They are! That's why I can't decide which one to start with XD

    @Laura: That's a interesting fact to know that Dior actually manufactures it! :D Do you think you can make some eotd with the palette? :D

  7. OoOo I was wondering how this is!! Now after seeing your swatches and hearing how it is, I wanna get it :D

    Thanks for following :)
