Product Review: Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Color in Sanders


I’ve already reviewed several Prismasilk Eye Colors from Sunday Riley (see my posts on Lady Godiva and Moon Dust), but I’m still finding other shades to love. Lately I’ve been wearing Sanders, a light brown with coppery shimmer.

I don’t know what “Sanders” means, but I’m enjoying this color. It’s warmer than Lady Godiva, which is more of a light cocoa-taupe with silvery shimmer, but it’s just as versatile. It can be applied as a sheer wash or layered on with a denser brush for a richer appearance and, like Sunday Riley’s other eye shadows, it has a very fine, silky texture.


I’m still a complete amateur at taking “swatch” photos, but this shot should give you a rough idea. (It actually looks a little too warm here; I tried!) It really is a shade that would flatter most skin tones.

Sanders lasts all day on my lids when I apply it over my usual primer (Urban Decay’s original Eyeshadow Primer Potion) and it doesn’t release any annoying “fall-out” onto the area around my eyes.

All in all, a high-quality essential that will be getting plenty of use!

Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Colors ($26 each) are available at Bergdorf Goodman (you can reach the Sunday Riley counter manager Stacie at 212-872-8635), Barneys, the Sephora website, and Dermstore online.

  1. I like the Sunday Riley products that I have purchased, but I must say that they don’t travel well. Both ‘y blush and eye shadow have chunked out!
