Make Up For Ever #83 Eyeshadow

Time for some blues, methinks!

  • #83 is a aqua-blue base with greenish-gold sheen and soft blue shimmer. I thought this color was incredibly pretty, and it is probably one of my favorites from all of the eyeshadows I purchased!
  • #147 is a dark, grayish-brown blue shade with low shimmer–kind of more of a satiny feel. It’s too similar to #81 to merit owning both, in my opinion. I’d say stick with #147 over #81, as well, just because the pigmentation and smoothness is better in #147.
  • #60 is a ultra deep matte navy blue with just a hint of green in its tone (it just seems to run a little green-blue rather than deep dark blue). Smooth and soft, richly pigmented.
  • #81 is a shimmery, dark grayish-blue base with brighter blue sheen and shimmer. I found this one wasn’t as pigmented as I’d like it to be. It was a little lighter, sheerer.
  • #308 is a shimmery, dark blue with brighter blue sheen. It reminded me of MAC Deep Truth eyeshadow with less frostiness.

Which of these are your favorites?

Temptalia Asks You

Do you consider yourself brand-loyal? Are you a one-brand kind of beauty buyer? Do you like to try all brands? Do you just stick a few?

Temptalia's Answer.

I used to be brand loyal, but now I find it near impossible! So many great brands and new products to try.

Project Revamp

If you could revamp MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?

HauteLook is having a Hourglass Cosmetics sale!

The sale is going on now at HauteLook! :)  Products are usually around 50% off, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more.  I’ve only tried a few Hourglass products before, so I might see what I can pick up from the sale.

(The link above is an invite-link, which is a referral link. HauteLook has opened up membership, so you are free to sign up on your own, if you wish! :) )
