Blue eyeshadow is such an empowering shade to wear, because it’s so often the, “No way!” shade. It’s vibrant and intense and there are so many good ones available! If you’re hesitant to wear blue eyeshadow, try wearing it with neutrals–perhaps a little blue in the crease or on the lower lash line.
To finish off this palette of Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.), we look at enough blue to paint a sky.
332 is a deep navy blue with a hint of indigo and a matte finish. I detected the faintest bit of blue micro-shimmer.
336 is a cornflower blue with a matte finish. I found it a smidgen on the sheer side, but it seems like it is buildable. It’s a bit like MAC’s Winkle.
322 is a bright, medium cyan blue with a matte finish.
371 is a bright cyan blue with a matte finish–it is just slightly lighter than #322.
367 is a pale, whitened sky blue with a matte finish. This was a little sheer and blended out too quickly (and ended up looking sheer).
388 is a vibrant, dark blue-purple with a matte finish. It seems comparable to MAC’s Atlantic Blue.
369 is a soft, paled periwinkle blue with a matte finish. Like #336, it was a touch sheer.
These are really soft mattes; they have a really buttery feel to them, where you can feel the powder loosening as you swatch. They aren’t particularly powdery, though they’ll kick up a little dust if you are heavy handed with your brush. A little product goes a long way, so there’s no reason to jab at the eyeshadow with a brush (something you might have done with past matte eyeshadows). The softness and give allow these to apply smoothly and evenly; there is no patchiness or drag with these. The only downside to these is if you really pack on the color, you might find that it fades (ever-so-marginally) after eight hours; it’s a very minimal drawback, resulting in 0.5 point reduction in longevity.
#367 was the one I had the most trouble with; I think the lightness alone emphasizes any shortcomings it has–it’s a little sheer, slightly powdery, and the end result is something patchy. #336 and #369 were more buildable in color but still had some noticeable sheerness.
