Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow

Make Up For Ever #35 & #127 Eyeshadows ($19.00) make for really excellent basic shades.  The brand really shines with their matte and semi-matte shades, like these two below.  I admit, when I first bought their eyeshadows, I went straight for the brights (this is me, duh!), so I’m glad I had the opportunity to check out some of the more neutral shades!  They have the same high-quality pigmentation and feel as the brights I’ve reviewed in the past.

  • #35 is is a soft, powdery beige.  It’s so soft, smooth, and buttery in its texture with great color payoff.   It’s so light that it’s difficult to see, which makes it a great neutral shade for adding light to lids or as a highlighter for the brow bone.
  • #127 is a cool-toned medium brown with a subtle sheen.  I love the way it has this barely-there sheen–it gives you an opportunity to play around with textures while still being subtle.
