Make Up For Ever Eye Shadows Review, Photos and Swatches

I have  got these eye shadows last May so I am not sure why I am writing about them only now. But it is better late then never.  Rejoice lovers of bright summer makeup looks as this post is for you!

I have picked my shadows at US Sephora for $19 each (they cost £14.95 in the UK).

The shades that I have chosen are:

  • Yellow 2 (matte brilliant yellow)
  • Orange Coral Matte 5 (matte vibrant coral)
  • Apple Green 91 (matte bright yellow green)

And I would love  even more shades for e.g  Neon Pink 75 (bright fuchsia pink), Turquoise Matte 72 (matte vibrant turquoise), Matte Blue 159, Purple 92 (matte brilliant purple) and many, many more.

I know that  a lot of people are scared of such colours but there is no reason to be!  I find that if the rest of your face is natural you can easily pull off any of the shades that I have. I love encouraging  my friends to try bold colours and I would love to encourage my readers as well! After all, it is just makeup and you can always take it off!

This is how the eye shadows look like in the pans.

So now I will tell you about each shade in more details and will

Spring Makeup: Corals & Peaches

Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face.  And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.

In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.

To be precise:  Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #5, a gorgeous peach with golden shimmer on my eyes! Yes, really, I think it looks stunning on the eyes but you could wear it on the cheek and lips, too. It’s such a universal product.

And Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer  which gives just the right amount of colour and brings some “life” to the face.

I am using a mix of blushers today but you could go for  Jouer Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Petal to keep up with the whole theme.

It is fun experimenting with
