I’ve always loved the idea of more darker, slightly muted versions of your typical spring colors! While Laura Mercier’s take was disappointing, it inspired me to take a look through shades that exist that might satisfy that craving for subdued pastels and shades of spring. I narrowed down my list to a mere five, but if you wanted to see how many I started with, check out the many I considered here.

  1. Make Up For Ever S836 Pink Ash — a muted, pink-purple with a satin finish
  2. Makeup Geek Duchess — a muted, cool-toned purple
  3. Make Up For Ever I238 Blue Cedar — a lightly brightened blue-teal
  4. Make Up For Ever M240 Prussian Blue — a dusty, navy blue
  5. MAC Typographic — a sooty gray

Bite Beauty has reformulated and is shipping out the reformulated version of Shade #001 to customers who purchased the shade. It’s an impressive move, even if the reformulated version isn’t stellar (I’ll let you know when I get mine!), because it’s always nice to see a brand listen to their customers and react appropriately.

You can find my original review here. Updated: Reader Julie just let me know that Shade #001 is also back in stock and it’s gone!
