I love blue, it looks great anywhere, on clothes, in hair, in music and even on your eyes! I love it!
Blue eyeshadows really make brown eyes stand out. Gone are the days when blue eyeshadow was a product of the 80s and 90s evoking strong feelings horror in people (I blame The Drew Carey Show, seriously.)
|Yes, I definitely blame it.|
Since I love my blues so much, I had picked up the Faces eyeshadow quartet in 2, which happens to be a set of amazing blues! I had shown it to you guys in an initial haul post.
The powders are soft and easy to blend. Being easy to blend they do have *some fall out* but not so much that you can't handle it.
They are shimmery but not OTT, definitely no chunky sparkles in these.
Price: Rs. 499 (I got mine for a discount though at Beauty Center.)
Expiry: 12 months from opening. Pfft..

The colours include:
- An iridescent light blue with slight purple undertones, great for highlighting when blended carefully.
- A turquoise like shade that really makes brown eyes look AH-MAZING!
- A dark navy-ish blue
- A blue based black that I LOVE even just like that. Great for contouring your crease and lining.
I love mixing these colours with nudes, golds and pinks for some really great looks! And I actually manage to get a lot of use out of these, which I never expected because, well, it’s blue eyeshadow!
In these images I've used only the quad, some mascara and black eye pencil.
If your looking for a great blue shadow quad, this I think is your best bet! The cost is great, quality is excellent! Only thing I hate is opening the damn thing! I have on more than one occasion broken my nails trying to open it. -__-
Oh, well. You win some, you lose some.
|Yes, I am in my jammies. :3|
By the way, do you like my hair colour? :D I decided to go red for a bit to match the heat of the weather these days. ;) The shadow looks very washed out in that image. :( And look no foundation! LOL! I did use some Photoshop to reduce the shine on my nose though. Hehehe...
If you guys would like a tutorial on how I did my eyes here. Let me know! Leave me a comment here or on my FB page. :)
