I have to apologize for my absence. I’ve been really busy and kind of in a funk so I decided to take a little break from blogging — I think it happens to all of us from time to time 🙂
I’m back with this beautiful eyeshadow palette from MAC. While my mom was in NYC she bought this for me as a little gift. She’s so thoughtful — and knows exactly what makes me happy! Eyeshadow!
“It’s eye shadow innovation like you’ve never seen before. A versatile powder that brings out the pigment’s pure and true color. The result is a glamorous, creamy and lightweight hybrid offering two distinctive effects: applied wet for a super saturation of color that glistens with metallic brilliance, or dry for sheer coverage with a soft, sparkling finish.”
Bleuluxe #1 — sparkly off white
Bleuluxe #2 — sparkly cool toned grey-blue
Bleuluxe #3 — navy with two toned shimmer
Bleuluxe #4 — blackened navy blue with pearl
Bleuluxe #5 — neutral black with blue microshimmer
In the swatches below I applied the shadows dry and they are moderately sheer. In the description provided by MAC, that’s how these shadows are designed to perform. When applied to the eye dry I prefer layering the sparkly shades over other eyeshadows. The two darker shades were very soft, almost to a fault. They were a bit too crumbly, but with some extra effort I was able to make them work.
When applied wet they are fully opaque, as seen below (Bleuluxe #1-3). Sorry for the incomplete look… I just wanted to show what the eyeshadows look like wet, but wasn’t really in the mood to put together full-on drag makeup. I hope you understand 🙂
When used wet or dry there was a lot of fallout. I think these would be great for a glamorous night out, but not something I would wear everyday.
Although they are limited edition, you should still be able to pick this up if you’re interested!
Have you tried any of the Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows?
