Sephora Calypso Soul Palette + Guest FOTD!

Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you're having a great weekend. Just wanted to post my review/recommendation for the new Sephora Calypso Soul palette- it's awesome! It really strikes me as a great gift item- and that's why I added it to my list of Mother's Day Shopping Ideas in a recent video.

I love the fact that this 5-color palette could give you a traditional smokey eye- but you also have a couple of fun colorful shades to play with. These are also VELVETY soft shades- kind of different from some Sephora brand eyeshadows I've tried in the past. They actually remind of my Smashbox shadows- plus the packaging is SO cute!!

The cost is $32 on Sephora.com... click this link for more details

Last weekend when my sister-in-law Sarah was visiting, I used the palette on her, and I've used it on myself quite a few times too. Below is the look I did on her- My "guest" Face of the Day!


  • Step 1: Go all over the lid with the shimmery white shade
  • Step 2: Apply the turquoise blue shade on the outer half of the lid and into the crease
  • Step 3: To better define the outer V, use the charcoal grey shade on the outer half of the crease, this will do interesting things to the blue- keeping the blue-ish tone but making it deeper.
  • Step 4: Use the charcoal shade with a liner brush- it can serve as your lower liner
  • Step 5: Highlight with the second lightest shade in the palette- it's gold-toned
  • Step 6: Liner upper lashline with black pencil liner
  • Step 7: Apply mascara & false lashes for added drama!
I chose to keep the look kind of soft- but the charcoal shade in the palette allows for lots of drama if that's what you're going for. Or you could lay off of that dark shade a bit to let the blues/greens show up more! And this is part of why I love the palette- it's so versatile!

Have a great day everyone!

  2. Its a very nice blue color... I always love blue and green eyeshadows myself and I find that blue and green makes any eye color stand out and makes it look brighter and more wider eyes!
