Make Up For Ever #304 Eyeshadow

If you know me, you know I’m a big fan of green eyeshadow. So is it really any surprise that I have five more green/teal shadows to share with you?

  • #304 is a shimmery, chartreuse-y green. It’s very much like #171, and at the time of purchase, I was a bit frazzled and quick in scribbling down the shades I wanted, but if I had been thinking, I would have skipped this one (or skipped the 171). They’re both incredibly similar. I’d say this one runs a little more green than the other, maybe. This one has a little more shimmer, and it is a smooth, well-pigmented shimmer shadow to boot. It does remind me of MAC Overgrown eyeshadow.
  • #34 is a soft, pale green with a little yellow tone. It has a slight sheen, but it isn’t really shimmery, though it is definitely not matte. It reminds me of a more subtle MAC Juxt eyeshadow, particularly with a lot less frostiness.
  • #302 is a medium teal shimmery shade. It seems to run a little bluer than green, and it isn’t as pigmented or smooth as many of the other Make Up For Ever eyeshadows have been for me. In comparison to #168, this is a disappointment, so I would definitely skip it and opt for the #168.
  • #168 is a bright pop of teal with a little bit of shimmer and sheen. It does remind me a lot of MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow, but I think this is a tad brighter and a bit more of a green-teal. It also has less frost in its finish. As a fan of teal, this is a must-have for me!
  • #93 is a matte, green-teal. It is fairly pigmented and feels smooth when applied. This color works better when you build it up intensity by layering the color over, rather than grabbing a bunch at once and hoping that will pack on the color. The layering allows you to build-up the color smoothly and gives you much more color that way. It does remind me of MAC Melody eyeshadow, which is a long-discontinued color.

Which of these are your favorites?
