Editor's Review
Contains: Sample Provided

Deep Truth is described as a "true dark blue [with a Frost finish]." It's a medium-dark, brightened blue with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft texture, but it was stiffer and thinner compared to the permanent version I have. It wore well for eight hours and was easier to use than I expected, based on the texture. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Claims / Ingredients

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.

MAC Deep Truth is a nice jewel toned blue in the pan, but on my eyes it looks like a blue with shifts of indigo. It's definitely a cool blue and I find it works with my dark brown eyes. It has some shimmer/frost in the pan, but once applied it almost looks matte (but not flat). I wouldn't personally call it a `dark-blue`... maybe `medium-blue`. In the pan the eyeshadow is quite stiff, but the product can be picked-up nicely with a good brush; it works good with both flat brushes (for precise application) and fluffy brushes (for blending). The opacity is not great with first applications, but it can be built up easily (especially with a flat brush). There's some fall-out, but it's minimal. For a bold opaque application a darker shade underneath Deep Truth would really help. It's not the easiest eyeshadow to blend, but it doesn't look patchy.

This is SUCH a beautiful colour! It's easy to apply so it goes on really opaquely without much effort, and stays bold without fading over time. It's versatile, as it can be used to create a blue smokey eye, and can also be used in various ways in combination with other shades (i.e. to deepen the crease, on the undereye) depending on the look. I've seen other brands attempt similar shades, but nothing comes close to this, as the glitter does not feel rough or uncomfortable, but applies smoothly. I feel like the picture itself speaks 1000 words (just look at that colour!), but I thought I would reinforce it with my personal experience.
