Make Up For Ever: Eyeshadows #159, 167, 72, 118, 150 (Blues)


Make Up For Ever #159 Eyeshadow

More blues?! Indeed!

  • #159 is a deep shade of cobalt blue. It’s almost like a blue meshed with violet. It’s absolutely stunning, and I’d consider it a must-have if you ever have an inkling to venture into blue (or you’re already in love). It’s extremely pigmented, smooth to the touch, and goes like a dream.
  • #167 is a shimmery, water-blue. It’s soft, pigmented, and has a nice sheen. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Freshwater eyeshadow, actually.
  • #72 is a matte, bright medium blue. Sephora describes it as a turquoise, but I definitely don’t think there’s much turquoise, if *any* in it. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Electric Eel eyeshadow, but not as bright–a little more toned down.
  • #118 is a light, sky blue. It’s really almost like a robin’s egg blue, actually. It has a matte finish, and it feels smooth and buttery. I’ve always been on the hunt for a good matte sky blue like this one.
  • #150 is a soft, pearly light blue with just a touch of silver sheen to it. It’s like a bluer version of MAC’s Surreal eyeshadow — and a lot less frosty. This is one of the better textures and pay off I’ve had with the brand’s shimmery shadows.

Which of these are your favorites?

i have 159 and 72. i was just abt to say da same thing abt 167, that it looked like freshwater and i already have it. =D maybe ill get some more blues in da future.

Can anyone comment on the pigmentation of #118? It looks like it is pretty sheer, and might be a challenge to build up to complete coverage.

Can anyone tell me if the 159 anything like MAC’s Bang on Blue? I’ve been looking for a similar color. Thanks in advance !

thank you SO MUCH for posting a swatch of 167 I’ve been looking and looking. Now I’m DEFINITELY getting that one! 🙂 🙂
