5 Shades of Aqua Eyeshadow

It’s hard to find a really awesome aqua eyeshadow, because aqua tends to be a lighter color–almost pastel–that they can be sheer and/or chalky (or just powdery). Sometimes they lean blue, other times they lean green.  I wouldn’t call this the best of aqua, because there are many more aqua shades I’ve swatched!

What’s your favorite aqua-hued eyeshadow?

  1. That Inglot shadow looks like such a great colour! I really need to look into getting my hands on some of their products.

  2. I like Urban Decay Minx. I used it on a model in one of my Makeup Breakdowns:

  3. Is MAC Aqua an older or pro color?

    I agree with Jenn!!! That Inglot color looks super!

    Illamasqua Bedaub cream pigment! It’s difficult to use without primer but it’s so striking

  6. I love Aqua eyes! Avon’s had some surprisingly good aqua shades.

    I have the BE Illusion, and I really like the color. I would love to try the GA color, too!

    That Inglot one looks exactly like the Majolica Majorca sea foam green eyeshadow I recently purchased. That is a great Korean or Japanese brand? And the eyeshadow cost something like six bucks

    My fave aqua eyeshadows are LM mermaid and LM baked shadow aquamarine.

  10. Bought Molton Brown’s light blue- aqua single shadow years ago….looks like BE Illusion.
