I love weathered blues; which I interpret as blues that are dusty, muted, gray-tinged, stormy, and such. There’s just a faded quality to them, but there’s still depth and interest in the color. My very favorite of all-time is Urban Decay Strip, which was discontinued quite awhile ago.

  1. Urban Decay Shattered — a shimmering, muted blue with green and gold shimmer
  2. L’Oreal Infinite Sky — a gorgeous, glimmering stormy blue with a hint of gray
  3. Zoya Skylar — a muted, gray-tinged blue with gold sparkle
  4. Inglot #336 — slightly brightened and richer, but still a rather muted, navy blue with a matte finish
  5. Zoya Sunshine — a sparkling, muted navy blue polish

What’s your favorite shade of a weathered blue?

    I wish I could wear more blue eyeshadows but I feel like they make my blue eyes look dull in comparison.

  5. Weathered blue, what a great way to describe this kind of shade! I have to remember that.

    MAC Starless Night pigment, NARS China Blue & Kamchatka, NARS Brumes & Mandchourie, UD Sabbath (Black Palette)… I could go on & on! I love a deep, weathered blue; in fact, it’s really the only type of blue I can wear.

    Strip! I picked it up on sale after seeing your swatches when it was first announced that they were discontinuing it. I love how it reads a bit silver on me!

  8. I love China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Fade into Hue, MAC Powder Eyeshadow in Tilt, Rescue Beauty Lounge Nail Lacquer in Catherine H, Zoya Professional Lacquers in Kristen and Skylar. :)

  9. I should give Shattered a try. I always see photos of it that look so lovely but I tend to steer clear of dusty blues and I don’t quite know why. I think I’ll give it a try next time I’m at Sephora.

    One blue-grey eye shadow I’ve been wearing a lot is MAC’s Cumulus from a collection years ago,I’ve hit pan on it :( and they haven’t repromoted. It reminds me of Swan Lake also was a limited edition and I wish they would bring it back. It’s the perfect blue on my me,not too bright,very wearable and I can wear it slightly smokey with other darker greys or just by itself for daytime. So any Blue but more grey than blue shades—Holy Grail!

  11. What a fitting color for today. Beautiiful!

    I don’t wear blue eyeshadow exceptionally often, but I do like Shattered and Infinite Sky quite a bit. I like to pair them with an iron grey or cool brown. :)

    Shattered, infinite sky, and skylar. I don’t very much like wearing nail polish but the eyshadows are really gorgeous and wearable. Love love love.

  15. Any cool toned muted color looks great on me.I want shattered very badly now!

  16. That Inglot shadow is soo pretty!
