Make Up For Ever #311 Eyeshadow

Here’s kind of a mish-mash of shades — plummy/browns.

  • #311 is a shimmery burgundy shade. It runs a little on the reddish wine side, and the shimmer is noticeable without being too much. It’s a diamond shadow, so it has a frostier finish than other iridescent shadows by Make Up For Ever.
  • #141 is a sheer, slightly shimmery pale mauve-pink. It doesn’t have the best color pay off, but it can be layered to get a little more pop out of it.
  • #162 is a matte, brownish-burgundy shade. It can be layered for increased intensity, though it has decent color pay off. I like it for the crease, personally!
  • #84 is a shimmery, smoky green with gray tone. It has golden shimmer laced throughout. It reminded me of a lighter MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow, actually.
  • #47 is a matte, grayed-down green. It’s kind of like a drab green in a way, but it’s a nice way to add depth to the crease without adding a lot of darkness.

Which of these are your favorites?

    Is #84 similar to Silverthorn or Vex?

    • #84 doesn’t look anything like Silverthorn or Vex on me, since it’s really quite green. It looks similar to Greensmoke if I had to pick a MAC dupe!

    311 is pretty! I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting 162 now :) how do you think 47 compares to Club? It looks similar to me.

    I do wish the colors had names instead of numbers…i always get a kick out of the color names! and i think the numbers are harder to remember. Anyway, I’m loving the MUFE series!!!!! thanks :)

    • It’s similar, but it doesn’t really have the duochrome of Club, you know? The shimmer is a lil’ more flat.

      I wish they had names too!!
