5 Shades of Weathered Blue

I love weathered blues; which I interpret as blues that are dusty, muted, gray-tinged, stormy, and such. There’s just a faded quality to them, but there’s still depth and interest in the color. My very favorite of all-time is Urban Decay Strip, which was discontinued quite awhile ago.

  1. Urban Decay Shattered — a shimmering, muted blue with green and gold shimmer
  2. L’Oreal Infinite Sky — a gorgeous, glimmering stormy blue with a hint of gray
  3. Zoya Skylar — a muted, gray-tinged blue with gold sparkle
  4. Inglot #336 — slightly brightened and richer, but still a rather muted, navy blue with a matte finish
  5. Zoya Sunshine — a sparkling, muted navy blue polish

What’s your favorite shade of a weathered blue?

MAC Starless Night pigment, NARS China Blue & Kamchatka, NARS Brumes & Mandchourie, UD Sabbath (Black Palette)… I could go on & on! I love a deep, weathered blue; in fact, it’s really the only type of blue I can wear.

Strip! I picked it up on sale after seeing your swatches when it was first announced that they were discontinuing it. I love how it reads a bit silver on me!

I love China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Fade into Hue, MAC Powder Eyeshadow in Tilt, Rescue Beauty Lounge Nail Lacquer in Catherine H, Zoya Professional Lacquers in Kristen and Skylar. πŸ™‚

I should give Shattered a try. I always see photos of it that look so lovely but I tend to steer clear of dusty blues and I don’t quite know why. I think I’ll give it a try next time I’m at Sephora.

One blue-grey eye shadow I’ve been wearing a lot is MAC’s Cumulus from a collection years ago,I’ve hit pan on it πŸ™ and they haven’t repromoted. It reminds me of Swan Lake also was a limited edition and I wish they would bring it back. It’s the perfect blue on my me,not too bright,very wearable and I can wear it slightly smokey with other darker greys or just by itself for daytime. So any Blue but more grey than blue shades—Holy Grail!

I don’t wear blue eyeshadow exceptionally often, but I do like Shattered and Infinite Sky quite a bit. I like to pair them with an iron grey or cool brown. πŸ™‚

Shattered, infinite sky, and skylar. I don’t very much like wearing nail polish but the eyshadows are really gorgeous and wearable. Love love love.
