6 Must-Have MAC Blue Eyeshadows

Electric Eel eyeshadow is a ridiculously bright pop of blue. It’s a satin eyeshadow, but it’s smooth, though it almost feels more matte since there’s no real shimmer to it. It is also ridiculously pigmented! If you find the texture too difficult, try Clarity eyeshadow instead, which is similar, but has a Matte2 texture, which is smoother, butterier.

Freshwater eyeshadow is the perfect medium blue. It’s not light, but it isn’t too dark. It has a veluxe pearl finish, which means it has shimmer in its texture, but it looks gorgeous because it is so richly pigmented. This is one of my favorite eyeshadows!

Prussian eyeshadow is a dusty dark blue, and it has a matte finish (it is a Matte2 by definition). It’s smooth without being chalky, and it can add so much dimension to your look (as mattes often do).
