Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow (#35, #127) Review, Photos, Swatches

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.

Um I’m really liking the dark brown one…its looks like a better version of MAC’s Espresso!I might have to check this out. Thanks Christine

Do you know why some MUFE eyeshadows are descripted as “blush powder” vs. the standard “eye shadow” ? I have the MUFE 92 and it’s listed as “blush powder”

All of their eyeshadows can be used as blushes and vice versa – they’re the same size, same number, etc.

While I’ve always wanted to own MUFE shadows, not only are they not available anywhere near me, but the overall price again comes into play. Maybe if it was a duo I could see myself possibly getting something for $19 but for a little over $20, I could get myself 6 NYX shadows at Ulta with their deals. Sadly I just don’t see myself forking out cash for MUFE any time soon. 🙁

I LOVE MUFE shadows. They blend so well and they are so pigmented. I have neutrals, brights, mattes and frosts from their collection. These are two beautiful colors I don’t have. I will check them out.

Does Make Up For Ever ever sell their shades in palette form? I’ve seen their collection at Sephora but everything was separate. I’m a palette-lover, myself.

Yes – you can purchase them in palette form at the boutique, or else you can pop them out of the pots. All of them just pop out, no depotting necessary.

I love MUFE. Favourite high-end brand for eye makeup. But these are neutrals, and I can find neutrals like these at my local drug store for like, 1/3 of the price with the same pigmentation and quality. I only go to MUFE for their brighter shades.

I just discovered MUFE this year, in a Shoppers Drug Mart near my place (each Shoppers in my city has different brands in their Beauty Boutiques), and absolutely love their eyeshadows… so pigmented. Sadly, MUFE is pulling out of all the Shoppers here in Canada, so it won’t be available locally. I’ve picked up three of their brighter shadows (the hot pink, a midtone reddish purple, and an aqua) and am planning on getting a few more of their unique colours before they’re gone.

these swatches just don’t do justice for these amazing eye shadows. MUFE shadows are silky smooth and does exactly what you want them to do.. stays put.. blends when you want them to, and you can definitely pack on more colour

I rather have an eyeshadow that last all day than a eyeshadow that doesn’t. I would pay $19 for the quality of it and in the long run i would be a satisfied with the long lasting eyeshadow :).
