Make Up For Ever #139 Eyeshadow
Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow ($20) are high-intense powder shadows that come in a huge variety of shades (over 100) and finishes (matte, semi-matte and iridescent). Some of the brighter shades can even be used as a blush.
The eyeshadows are cased in small, slim black plastic compacts (no mirror) and are very lightweight and great for travel. They are a bit flimsy, and dare I say cheap, but as they are a pro makeup artist brand, they are meant to be placed in palettes. The Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow Palette holds ten eyeshadows.
Everytime I go to Sephora I have a “routine” of the brands I’ll visit, and I always stop by Make Up For Ever. I’ve tried many of their products through the past five years, but I never actually purchased any of their shadows. I always thought they were a bit expensive, so I would purchase MAC as an alternative. For reference, MUFE shadows actually contain a bit more product than MAC (MAC – 0.05 oz, MUFE 0.08 oz) not that it’s hugely significant.
I’m typically drawn to all shades of brown, and shades that are versatile and can be worn often. #139 is described on the website as a Iridescent Brown Black. I would describe it as a neutral, dark brown with a satiny/matte finish.
- Soft, blendable texture
- Intensly pigmented
- Little-to-no fall-out during heavy appplication
- Small, slim compact is good for travel
- Large variety of colors
- The quality of the packaging isn’t the greatest, but like mentioned, they are good for travel/keeping in your bag
(no complaints of the actual performance of the product!)
