Make Up For Ever ME216 Electric Blue is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark blue with a metalic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Make Up For Ever ME216 Electric Blue Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It read more pearl than metallic in finish on the lid, especially as I blended out the edges. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a moderately dense consistency that was a bit creamy but could have been softer and easier to pick up with a brush. With the right technique and tools, it became easy to use, but the previous formula was just easier to work with to begin with. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.
It's not quite as cool-toned as the previous version, so they did not appear as similar as you might expect (see side-by-side comparison).
